Oregon Trail Makes the Long, Arduous Journey to iPhone

By Casey Lynn Contributing Writer, [GAS] My iPhone says I’ve died of dysentery. Though somehow, the fact that it comes from a cute little cartoon makes the blow a little easier to take than back in a computer lab twenty years ago with the green-and-black pixels of the original Oregon Trail. Last week, Oregon Trail […]

Girl Band iPhone Jam Session

By Casey Lynn Contributing Writer, [GAS] I really kind of dig this video. The Mentalists performing live playing only iPhone apps that simulate musical instruments: Ocarina, Retro Synth, miniSynth, and DigiDrummer Lite. She plays the ocarina much better than I do.

Woz Dances with the Stars

Well folks, Steve Wozniak was introduced on Dancing with the Stars last night, and to tell you frankly, I can’t really tell you how he did. I was far too busy watching his partner dance. Yes, I know, shame on me. I’ll let you watch his performance and be the judge for yourself. Enjoy the […]

Nevada casinos alerted to card-counting iPhone app

The business model for casinos always includes the simple idea that in general, gamblers will lose more than they win.  Every game is constructed to fulfill that expectation, while still allowing enough winnings to keep hopeful gamblers interested.  Any factor that alters those odds, therefore, threatens the casino business. It isn’t illegal to count cards […]

Your iPhone Died of Dysentary [Oregon Trail Rumor]

By Jimmy Rogers Contributing Writer, [GAS] If you’re any kind of geek and you’re in my age bracket (18-25), you probably got excited when you read the title of this article.  The Oregon Trail is an iconic game for many young geeks because it was available in schools (something about being educational), fun to play, and a bit […]

Woz to Become Dancing Queen

No, this is not a joke folks. Steve “Mac Daddy” Wozniak will be featured on the next season of Dancing With The Stars. We have no idea if Steve actually knows how to dance, but I predict this will spread through the Web like wildfire, bringing endless hours of mirth to hackers worldwide. Good luck […]

I’m a PC and I’m 4 ½

What can I say, this one was so darn cute I had to post it. I really think Microsoft has a winner on their hands here. I’m not saying that it makes Windows the better platform, but from a marketing point of view, I think this is way better than anything Apple has ever come […]

A Sad Day for Microsoft

Most of you probably know this by now, but in the next few months, Microsoft plans to cut about 5% of its workforce, a total of approximately 5000 jobs. I thought this sad cartoon illustrated the situation quite well. There’s no word if apple will be following the trend yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised […]

Propellers

By Miss Cellania Contributing Writer, [GAS] iPhone cameras apparently scan left to right, which makes no difference for most pictures, but when you have a fast-moving object such as a propeller, you can get a really weird effect. See more of the same in photos here, here, here, and here. Or even in this video […]

The Beauty of The Mac – Now Wearable

By Jimmy Rogers Contributing Writer, [GAS] While jewelry from parts of former Macs is nothing new, this set really caught my attention.  It’s the difference between amateur and artist. They’re made by Creative Dexterity (on Etsy) and titled “I’m A Mac.”  Making Mac jewelry is common amongst the faithful…a friend of mine had a power button […]

The New 17-inch MacBook Pro

When Apple unveils a new product, you can always expect the company to release a shiny commercial to go along with it, and that’s exactly what they just did for their new 17-inch MacBook Pro, which I think looks totally fabulous!

With the MacBook Wheel, you’ll never have to put your hands on a keyboard again! Oh, and for those of you who haven’t realized it yet, this video comes from the Onion News Network, and is unfortunately only a spoof. [Via Engadget]
