First seen at the Lamborghini booth at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 in March, Samsung and Lamborghini created a well received 360 video of the Lamborghini driving around. Well I finally got to see it today and its more than just a camera in the car.  This video was very well planned out and shots… Read More


foil as faraday-cage

Sigh.  More proof mean people suck.  So here is the story.  Thieves are using signal power amplifiers to extend your cars reach to your key fob.  The way it works normally is when you are a few feet from your car, the car’s remote sensing system detects its your key fob and unlocks itself.  Well… Read More


Apple watch hero_classic_leather_large

Sound less then excited in my title?  That is because I was.  I have the original Pebble, the Pebble Steel and the original LG.  The Apple watch is nicer then all of these, but only just a bit nicer.  The screen is a bit nicer, but not much.  I liked the round edges of the… Read More


Apple watch aaand it gone meme

Short answer mostly no.  Long answer, there are still watch to be sold to Apple owners, you just have to sell it the right way.  Now even though Apple sold out of their first batch of pre-orders, they did not release any numbers to indicate how many that is.  Some analysts have predicted the company… Read More


BigRig for Ants?

There has been lots of talk about self driving cars and how they will change the world, and they will, but before that happens, a just as big change will come to trucking. Imagine a long line of trucks all super close together getting 2x the gas or electric mileages because of drafting. Drivers would… Read More


My wife come in and asked me to listen to a voice mail. It was a recording of someone with an english accent saying that he was from the IRS and they have been trying to reach out to her for a 1040 audit. ( WTH is a 1040 audit anyway?) They never used her… Read More

When it comes to the auto industry the future is coming on at full speed.  Although I think its optimistic to think we will have self driving cars in 5 years, because of both technology and legal reasons, but in 10 I think we will see a large percentage of cars that can drive themselves… Read More

I’m sure you have seen the news.  Microsoft has a private beta out there for 48, now 24 hours, and then … well we do not know what will happen then.  However, the simple beta is mostly about getting bluetooth notification with Pebble to work.  Although this sounds pretty simple and not indicative of an… Read More


ok, I need to cross check these cheat codes I got off the web, but I’m going to place them here and then check up on them keep or remove each cheat code as I verify them.  BTW, there are not cheats as much as they are steam mods. In the main menu section click… Read More

This has been building up for sometime.  As with the Great Mobile War and Browser War, the Great Office Cloud War has 3 players, Google, Apple and now Microsoft. In the beginning, there was Google Docs.  Google docs were pretty simple but had one great advantage.  You could start a doc on one machine, go… Read More

I upgraded from Windows 7 to 8 then 8.1  I have not had any more major issues with it short of the UX/UI that is basically common knowledge at this point.  I’ve downloaded Windows 10 and although I have not experimented with it too much, its a better experience then 8, so I feel I’m… Read More

Not too impressed, but I cannot wait to see an actual game like in the Gear VR.  The quality could be a bit better, but still pretty good.  The NBA All Star video should be out in a few weeks so we are on standby.  REALLY looking forward to it though. There are two videos,… Read More

Reddit

So sweet. I had to login to Reddit just to upvote the rant and comment.  Instead of reprinting the text, I screenshot it for justice.   The basics of this is someone ranting, and rightly so, that a grilled cheese is ONLY bread and cheese.  You add anything else and its a melt.  Now one may… Read More

A computer virus that is, and you can.  Seems there is a reported case, on Reddit, of an e-cigarette delivering a payload of malware once plugged into the USB port.  A cheap device from China it seems. No shocker there.  So what should we learn from this especially given the post I did yesterday on… Read More


list of risky android devices

There are tonnes of really cheap android tablets out there you can get on Black Friday.  Most of them from manufacturers you have never heard of or at least not making Android tablets. This should be clue number one. In a post on bluebox.com,  Andrew Blaich writes that many of the cheap tablets they tested had minor… Read More
