The iPhone may be Apple’s first “official” phone, but apparently they toyed with the idea 25 years ago. Way back in 1983, designer Hartmut Esslinger, the same guy who made the Apple IIc computer, came up with this phone/tablet prototype.
The 1983 version of the iPhone obviously never made it into production, but it’s still a cool concept. Although writing a physical electronic check seems a little silly now that we have online banking.

Engineers at the University of California, San Diego have made the highest-resolution computer display in the world. Powered by 80 NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600, the display really is something to look at (pun intended).
Are we approaching the end of TV as we have come to know it?

"I had a meeting with my probation officer today and he told me that he has to install monitoring software onto my PC. No big deal to me; that is part of my sentence," he wrote on his Lost and Alone blog. "However, the software doesn't support GNU/Linux. So he told me that if I want to use a computer, I would have to use an OS that the software can be installed on.

At a previous job, the head of QA had several stacks of several hundred CDs, on the floor, in front of floor to ceiling windows. The sunlight shining through the window would glow through these CDs in a very appealing manner that made the green light seem warm. From that point forward I always thought that a stack of CDs with a tubular light inside would make a very cool lamp.

Consider this: If the police caught Brett Favre running a dolphin-fighting ring out of his pool, where dolphins with spears attached to their foreheads fought each other to the death, would they bust him? Of course not,
Normally, a 40-year-old sandwich would be something to be avoided. Unless you're one of millions who flock to McDonald's each year to chow down on a Big Mac. The triple-decker burger, which helped breed America's super-size culture and restaurants' ever-expanding jumbo meals, is turning 40. For some fast-food junkies, that's cause for celebration.

Any sensible culture would know what to do with Annalisee Brasil. The 14-year-old not only has the looks of a South American model but is also one of the brightest kids of her generation. When Annalisee was 3, her mother Angi Brasil noticed that she was stringing together word cards composed not simply into short phrases but into complete, grammatically correct sentences.
After the girl turned 6, her mother took her for an IQ test. Annalisee found the exercises so easy that she played jokes on the testers--in one case she not only put blocks in the correct order but did it backward too. Angi doesn't want her daughter's IQ published, but it is comfortably above 145, placing the girl in the top 0.1% of the population. Annalisee is also a gifted singer: last year, although just 13, she won a regional high school competition conducted by the National Association of Teachers of Singing.

The Coyote Buttes are part of the Vermillion Cliffs National Monument and are half way between Kanab (UT) and Page (AZ). It is one of the least visited south Utah Parks and the reason is that is it is so precious that the Bureau of Land Management only gives out 10 permits a day! It took us three years to get a permit, but it was worth it! And once you visited it, you’ll know why it is restricted. The slickrock is so fragile that it can easy be trampled!

Hey, Blog Guy - I know you’ve managed to come up with some incredible video for others, so it’s my turn. I’d love to see a bunch of REALLY expensive cars smashed to smithereens. I’m talking Porsches, Lamborghinis, stuff like that. Make my fantasy come true!
That’s a pretty tall order - I don’t have an unlimited budget, you know. Still, I managed to come up with footage of $700,000 worth of fabulous cars being reduced to scrap iron. There was supposed to be a Bentley in the collection, too, but I “borrowed” it. Don’t tell the IRS. Here’s the video:
