Her Morning Elegance
A great stop-motion short by Orlen Lavie, made in collaboration with Yuval et Merav Nathan. I’ve been meaning to post it a few weeks ago, but it got lost amidst the piles of work and school I was in.

HP Pavilion Entertainment PC Series
My roommate got a new laptop for his work. I was surprised to find out that he paid about $800. It’s an HP Pavilion Entertainment series, comes with dual core 2.16 processors, 4GB of RAM, 320 GB of HD, and it looks pretty cool. It’s comes with a 15.4 glossy WXGA wide-screen display. On top…
Modular Cell Phones: The Way of the Future?
We all love our iPhones, but will it still represent the wave of the future in a few years? The one thing that I can’t bear without is some form of input device, better than a small touchscreen that is just unwieldy. I don’t think that the slide-away keyboards are a solution either. LG has…
Showing Off Your Insides: The X-Ray Lamp
There is something really cool about x-rays. I don’t really know exactly what it is, but the way that the colors contrast and the skulls and bones that are found on them are just plain intriguing. This is probably why I like this new lamp so much. It shows off your insides, without involving radiation.…
I’ve been listening to Nevermind and In Utero from Nirvana. It’s been years since I truly listened to these albums. Maybe it’s because I saw Last Days by Gus Van Sant last year and I’ve been thinking about Kurt Cobain‘s death. Images courtesy of Wikipedia.
I just love the song Vaporous on their album Hybrid. For a long time, my roommate and I discussed if Elsieanne’s (the vocalist) voice was modified for her songs with computers. In the end, parts of the songs she sings as part of Elsiane (the band) sound too perfect during some pitches to be natural.
Drive Dock: Turn Those Internal HDs into Floppies!
You might have heard the news, Western Digital was the first company to release a 2TB internal drive. Yep, you read right. That’s 2000 GB of storage in one single drive. When I get back home, you can be sure that I’ll upgrade all of my pesky 400 GB, 320GB and 500 GB to 2TB!…
All White: The Minimalist Apple-Like Keyboard
We all use keyboards everyday. It’s true that not all of us can type without looking at the keys, but more and more users get comfortable enough with typing. Most programmers and writers are able to type at least partially without looking at the keys. Personally, when I was a computer programmer working long hours…
Green Ideas: Your Own Carbon Neutral USB Flash Drive
We’ve always felt that wooden accessories are great. They are partly made out of sustainable materials, and wood is just plain good looking. Since USB flash drives are so small and can get taken apart quite easily, making your own wooden USB flash drive housing isn’t a big project. It’s still nice to see that…
