Bing Maps gets Worldwide Telescope App

This is very cool...the new version of Bing Maps has added Worldwide Telescope. This was previewed in this very cool TED talk where one of the things they showed was dragging around in Bing Maps streetview. When they dragged to see more of the sky, the image darkened and stars and outlines of constellations...



Awesome slow-motion HD (1000 fps)

What do you get when you capture HD video at 1000 frames per second? Incredibly sharp slow-motion shots. This is a demo reel from a company called I-Movix for their SprintCam product (this is the same company that captured the slow motion finish of Michael Phelps during the Olympics with an 8,000 fps...



Ubiquity makes web mashups really useful and easy

Note: If you have a short attention span, skip the text and just watch the video below. There's a cool tool that's just come out called Ubiquity, a plugin for Firefox (get the prototype here) that lets you do some really powerful stuff. It's created by one of the leading UI designers, Aza Raskin,...



PicLens is so cool

I just found out about a Firefox extension called PicLens, and it's awesome. It integrates with a bunch of image services to display an endless wall of images. It really is much easier to explain it in video form:



Sweet universal remote

If you've never heard of the Logitech Harmony Remote, you've got to check this out. It's Amazon's Deal of the Day, and I bought one the second I saw that it was. Why? Because this thing is way cooler than an ordinary universal remote. It basically works with any device that receives an infrared signal,...



Baskin-Robbins 31 cent night

I posted a couple of weeks ago about Ben & Jerry's free cone night, so in the interest of equal promotion, Baskin-Robbins is having a 31 cent scoop night this Wednesday night from 5pm to 10pm! It's not free, but the $0.31 goes towards the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.



Ben and Jerry's Free Cone Day today

Don't forget that it's free cone day today at Ben & Jerry's! I wonder if they've got the new Stephen Colbert flavor available in stores? In any case, the weather's just starting to warm up a bit so this is good timing.



Coke and Mentos domino effect

If you haven't seen one of the hundreds of YouTube videos of Coca-Cola and Mentos by now, you must be living under a rock. Basically, when you drop a roll of Mentos into a 2-liter bottle of Coke, a reaction causes a buildup of pressure and Coke will shoot out of the top of the bottle to a tall height. The...

Chicagoans can bring home leftover wine from restaurants

Governor Rod Blagojevich just signed a law that will allow Chicago residents to take home unfinished wine from a restaurant. Restaurants will have to seal the partially consumed bottles of wine securely in tamper-proof bags that would remain sealed during the trip home. If the customer were to be...



Like free stuff? Interested in Google?

One of the blogs I frequent, Inside Google, is looking to increase their viewership (and participation). They're doing that by starting DVD giveaways just for posting in the comments (obviously, no spam comments - add some value!). In order to keep it going though, people need to spread the word! So...



The Judge Smith Code

The trial over potential plagiarism in the creation of the Da Vinci Code book is over, but the judge who presided over the trial decided to have a little fun with the final judgement. Seemingly random italicised letters were included in the 71-page judgement given by Mr Justice Peter Smith, which...



Whirlyball

WhirlyBall, dubbed "The worlds only totally mechanized team sport" is best described as a combination of Hockey, Lacrosse, Basketball and Polo played while riding an electrically powered machine, similar to a...



The Final Countdown

junosand (Mark) submitted a link to YouTube's video of the Final Countdown, saying "How can you deny a link to The Final Countdown? There's even some interview footage with Europe." Well, he's right. I can't deny such a link. Incidentally, I just learned to play the beginning of the song on guitar...

How much money do you make? How much is that compared to the average American or compared to Tom Cruise? How much did you earn just reading these sentences? Ok, I'll stop asking questions. But the Forbes Money Meter is really a great timewaster...plus it'll show you how much money you made while wasting...
