Review: ASUS Transformer TF101 after more than two years

  Everyone is always reviewing the newest tech. When you hit sites like Ars Technica (one of my personal favorites) or Engadget, you get reviews on devices that either aren’t out, or have just came out. They’ve been in the hands of testers for a few weeks, or sometimes months, and then you get a review. That’s great, and I …

How to get the most out of your Android phone or tablet

I was going to make this post about smartphones in general, but decided to focus on Android to give me something more specific to work with.  That being said, a fair amount of the advice that follows applies to ANY smartphone. The first thing you need is to know what you’re working with.  What operating system does your phone use? …

Humble eBook bundle! Go buy one!

So I’m guessing at least some of you have heard of the Humble Bundle.  It’s a platform for independent game developers to get their games out to the masses.  Customers pay what they want, and get to decide where that money will go.

NASA is working on ACTUAL warp drive!

That’s right–turns out some researcher in 1994 (Miguel Alcubierre) figured out something about faster than light travel.  Basically, he figured out a way to warp space behind and in front of a spaceship.  The idea is that the space behind the ship would be forced to rapidly expand, propelling the ship forward really damn fast.  In short, we could get …

Moving atoms to make a movie

Science kicks a lot of ass.  Here, I’ll let the videos do the talking.  Keep in mind, they’re moving around individual carbon monoxide atoms to make movies (the making of video is after the break).

Batteries that would make Batman have a batgasm

Micro batteries powerful enough to jump-start a car!  Yeah, I just said that, and yeah, they’re real. Imagine a phone you only charge once a week, complete with an app that lets you jump start a car from a little port on the side.  How cool is that? On top of that, imagine what this means for electric cars.  Imagine …
