Second update News

Could this be the idea behind The Last Election 14?

Where are we in the search for The Last Election 14? Hidden codes, cyphers, messages to prepare, what little there has been posted has been food for the conspiracy crowd, all understandable considering the recent revelations regarding the US Governments’ need to spy on, well, everyone, even former Presidents of the US of A. But, […]

Update: The Last Election ’14 – “You hold the key”, new info

Well, twenty-four hours later and the site has not changed on any level I can see at the viral website www.thelastelection14.com . Just a few quick notes: 1) The Russian on the tab reads “Вы удерживайте клавишу” which, according to Google translate, is “You hold the key”. Not the first time I have seen that […]

Viral website “The Last Election ’14″, for what exactly???

So…. A message woke me up this morning, a friend wanting to know if I had heard anything about a website, or what it was referring to: The Last Election 14 . Intrigued, I shook off sleep after going to bed way early this morning and took a look. There isn’t much there. A quick web […]

Noisestash: Flixel Cinemagraph Pro for Mac (Deal of the Day)

GIFs, the looping moving images that are all the rage at the moment, aren’t just for silly cat memes. At least not anymore. Last year, Flixel made a big splash by getting a big placement on TV’s America’s Next Top Model and they haven’t looked back since. Flixel has managed to change the way fashion photographers […]

BABYMETAL Reviews

BABYMETAL, J-Pop meets Metal….uummm, it is really, REALLY good

First of all, ignore the band’s name. BABYMETAL was created by a Japanese talent agency, so it is best to think of it as a collection of symbols designed so that English speaking individuals can identify and remember who is being referred to.(1) There is a huge stigma attached to manufactured bands in the Western […]

One year later, Apple still headed wrong way with Maps

Posted September 26, 2013 @ 9:51 am CST by Alberto Lima

After a weekend of record breaking sales on their latest iPhone offering (again), Apple got an unfortunate report published by FastCompany. A year after Apple nixed Google’s Maps for their own in-house map application, Apple still seems to be giving some really bad directions to their customers.

Mario Paint Gets Lucky

Posted September 3, 2013 @ 1:49 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Back in the day I was all the Genesis. The middle school aged Alberto totally loved the “attitude” heavy marketing from SEGA; it spoke to me but Mario Paint was something that I absolutely had to have. Many years later the internet has come through and showed me what I missed out in my younger […]

BYOD: Bring your own downfall

Posted July 18, 2013 @ 7:35 pm CST by Chris Ness

Aside from the mildly inflammatory title, the BYOD scene presents a number of worries to admins and security folks at firms that allow employees to bring their own e-tools to work. Think for a second what you’re allowing: a device that isn’t under your total control, and is probably used just as poorly as the […]

Make no mistake about it, the Nokia Lumia 1020 is official an is every bit of the camera it is advertised to be.
