Elizabeth Warren Going In On Michael Bloomberg Is Even Better With “Ether” In The Background

Last night, most of the remaining Democratic presidential candidates got together in Las Vegas for their bloodthirstiest debate yet. The reason for the carnage: This was the first debate to include Michael Bloomberg, the former New York mayor and unctuous billionaire prick. Everyone else onstage spent the evening going in hard on Bloomberg, and nobody … More »

Making a flying saucer clock (with data storage) controlled by a Raspberry Pi

I love this strange and wonderful project on Hackaday.io. It is digital clock which uses a ring of 60 NeoPixels in a 3D printed flying saucer and 12 lights on the inner ring to indicate the hours. It also does backups. And light shows. All it needs is a cow being sucked up into it. At the end of November 2019 my trusty old iomega StorCenter NAS (Network Attached Storage) started behaving eratically and would keep disappearing from the network and locking up every few hours. I immediately mad...

AdQuick raises $6M to conquer an advertising market Google and Facebook won’t

With Google and Facebook yielding massive control over the online ad market leaving only scraps for other ad platforms, perhaps it was only natural that tech startups would take a step back and start to look for opportunities in selling billboards. AdQuick, a marketplace for out of home (OOH) advertising, tells TechCrunch that it has closed a $6 million Series A led by Initialized Capital with participation from WndrCo, Shrug Capital, The Todd & Rahul Angel Fund and rapper Nas.

A love letter to my beloved NAS Drive, the WD PR2100

I was hit with some cruel reality while writing this article: I’m an old fuck. But, before we get to this realisation, let’s get all David Copperfield and backtrack.

Boldy James & The Alchemist – “The Price of Tea in China” (Album Review)

This is the long-awaited sophomore album from Detroit emcee Boldy James. A man who rose to fame with his Alchemist produced 2013 debut M.1.C.S. (My 1st Chemistry Set). This resulted in a contract with Nas’ independent label Mass Appeal Records, but unfortunately Boldy got locked up for a while. He eventually made his comeback a few years ago with his House of Blues mixtape & now after reuniting with the Uncle Al on his Boldface EP a couple months ago, they’re back again with The Price of Tea in...

Clara HD Sync Kobo Clara with Synology NAS

After buying a book from the kobo store, the sync button on the kobo reader will sync the book with the reader. I am looking to set up similar functionality with my NAS (a Synology DS418), that is: when I press the sync button on the reader, it will pull all books that I put in a specific folder on the NAS to the kobo device. Would that be possible? PS: I am aware of content servers such as Ubooquity that can be run from the NAS, but these do not offer exactly what I want because this requires ...

The life and rise of Lil Nas X, the 'Old Town Road' singer who went viral on TikTok and just won his first 2 Grammys (AMZN)

Lil Nas X is one of the most popular musical artists in the world right now with the wildly popular, record-setting song "Old Town Road." The 20-year-old artist rose to fame in 2019 after his hit song first went viral on short-form video app TikTok, and has since set a record for the longest-running song at the No. 1 spot on Billboard Hot 100. He also made headlines when he came out as gay during the height of his viral career, saying he felt "pushed by the universe" to come out during Pride ...

Lil Nas X rips through ‘Old Town Road’ with BTS, Billy Ray Cyrus and Diplo at the 2020 Grammy Awards

Rapper Lil Nas X had a huge 2019. The 20-year-old, who performed at the 2020 Grammy Awards, put out his single “Old Town Road,” which when country singer-songwriter Billy Ray Cyrus was added, it became a massive hit.

Lil Nas X Performs Global Remix of “Old Town Road,” Swaps Nas for Cardi B on Surprise “Rodeo” Remix at 2020 Grammys

While 2019 definitely belonged to Lil Nas X, his Grammys debut turned out to be a family affair as he opted to make it a Lil Nas X & Friends moment. As we know, “Old Town Road,” perhaps better known as “Horses in the Back” by your lil’ nieces and nephews, was the song that could not and would not stop streaming last year. Part of the reason for that is because Lil Nas X kept remixing the damn song over and over again. The original remix featured the iconic Billy Ray Cyrus. After that, he saddled...
