Woz's Apple rainbow logo eyeglasses (and an Apple I) up for auction

"Around 1979, I had an optometrist in Palo Alto custom make 30 pairs of these glasses with lenses in the shape and rainbow colors of the original Apple logo," says Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. "It was a project, just for fun." — Read the rest

Google Maps takes on Facebook with launch of its own news feed

People are getting frustrated that Stories are everywhere now, but Google Maps is keeping it old school. Instead of adding tiny circles to the top of the app’s screen, Google Maps is introducing its own news feed. Technically, Google calls its new feature the “Community Feed,” as it includes posts from a local area. However, it’s organized as any other news feed would be — a vertically scrollable feed with posts you can “Like” by tapping on a little thumbs up icon. The feed, which is found with ...

The Best Home Gym Equipment for Gadget Nerds

Looking Glass’s next product is a holographic digital photo frame

Looking Glass’s technology is extremely cool, but has, thus far, been prohibitively expensive, ranging from $600 for its 8.9-inch product to $6,000 for the 15-inch model — and an undisclosed sum for its 32-inch 8K display. Portrait might not be the most technically ambitious or versatile product the Brooklyn-based startup has produced, but it’s easily the most accessible. At $349, it’s still not cheap (though it’s $199 if you get in early via Kickstarter), but it has to be one of the most aff...

November linkfest

It’s Word of the Year season, and two British dictionaries are leading the pack. Collins picked lockdown – a word we threw around here in the US but never experienced the way they did in the UK and elsewhere. (A friend of mine is literally confined to her London apartment after spending a month in France: she can’t go outdoors at all.) And Oxford Languages, publisher of the Oxford dictionaries, chose a phenomenon instead of a single word: the impact of the COVID-19 on language. “What struck the...

Hudson H9, A Failure On Multiple Fronts – Review

Hudson H9, A Failure On Multiple Fronts U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- I want to be upfront before we dive into the Hudson H9 review. The Hudson H9 captured my attention to the point that I overlooked the fact that it wasn't ideal for any practical, competition, or even defensive use. Normally my purchases are reasonably pragmatic, but I ignored logic and bought one of these 9mm disappointments like many others. Disclaimer: I never received a gun from Hudson for testing but purchased the pistol for ...

Why Did I Hoard This Shit?

If you’re anything at all like me—and God, I hope you’re not—you never throw anything that uses electricity out, and have developed an elaborate series of dubious justifications to explain why it is actually perfectly rational. Maybe, after all, you’ll need that USB-A to RCA converter cable in the future, or you’ll…Read more...

The Vizio Elevate's Rotating Speakers Are a Clever Dolby Atmos Solution

Dolby Atmos soundbars have a problem: They struggle to simulate height.

That kind of sucks when you have a fancy home theater setup but the spaceships on-screen don’t sound like…Read more...

A tween tries Apple’s new ‘Family Setup’ system for Apple Watch

With the release of watchOS 7, Apple at last turned the Apple Watch into the GPS-based kid tracker parents have wanted, albeit at a price point that requires careful consideration. As someone in the target demographic for such a device — a parent of a “tween” who’s allowed to freely roam the neighborhood (but not without some sort of communication device) — I put the new Family Setup system for the Apple Watch through its paces over the past couple of months. The result? To be frank, I’m conflic...

Can AI make me trendier?

As a software engineer and generally analytic type, I like to craft theories for everything. Theories on how to build software, how to stay productive, how to be creative...and even how to dress well. For help with that last one, I decided to hire a personal stylist. As it turned out, I was not my stylist’s first software engineer client. “The problem with you people in tech is that you’re always looking for some sort of theory of fashion,” she told me. “But there is no formula–it’s about taste....

The PC Guy Make Surprise Return in Latest Mac Press Event for Apple

On Nov. 10, 2020, Apple where launched three new Macs at their press event, which was powered by the company's new M1 chip.

The future of work will be 'hot offices' where employees can reserve a desk, according to Amazon's cloud boss

Amazon headquarters. Elaine Thompson/AP The future of work will be "hot offices" where employees reserve a desk, AWS CEO Andy Jassy told CNBC. Jassy, who oversees Amazon's cloud business, said he expects that once offices can safely reopen, people will likely adopt a hybrid model rather than being in an office 100% of the time.  The coronavirus pandemic has affected Amazon's approach to meetings as well as hiring: The company is more open to remote employees now than it was in the past, Ja...

Developer Delves Into Reasons Why Apple's M1 Chip is So Fast

Apple's M1 chip is the fastest chip that Apple has ever released in a Mac based on single-core CPU benchmark scores, and it beats out many high-end Intel Macs when it comes to multi-core performance. Developer Erik Engheim recently shared a deep dive into the ‌M1‌ chip, exploring the reasons why Apple's new processor is so much faster than the Intel chips that it replaces. First and foremost, the ‌M1‌ isn't a simple CPU. As Apple has explained, it's a System-on-a-Chip, which is a series of ch...
