That’s all you have to do! As an added bonus, if I reach 1,100 subscribers by the end of the contest then I’ll have another November … continued
I’ve been fascinated by the reactions to the Jonathan Martin bullying situation. For those of you not familiar with the situation, he was allegedly bullied by his teammates and things got so bad that he left the team to seek treatment. There are many that empathize with Martin and believe that he’s a victim. There are those that feel that this behavior is unacceptable for an NFL player — an occupation perceived by many Americans to be macho.
On one hand, the Jonathan Martin bullying controversy shows how universal the … continued
Madz Modz is a Filipino mechanical-mod maker that’s best known for its Nzonic series. The latest model of the popular telescoping mod is the Nzonic v4.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has finally allowed the use of consumer electronics during the takeoff and landing of airplanes.

It certainly took the organization long enough to get rid of this stupid restriction, but…
…the FAA still found a way to look silly. It refers to … continued
In the immortal words of Mitch Taylor, “This is it!” After battling a slight cold, lots of video editing, and a side project, I’m finally – finally! — going to start Beyond: Two Souls this weekend. The timing is excellent. GDC Next and Blizzcon are right around the corner. I should be getting review units of the Nexus 5 and (thanks to a special favor — love you!) iPad Air next week. There’s even a small chance that I’ll snag a consulting job that’ll take me out of the … continued
With the iPad Air, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nexus 5, there are some great products for tech nerds to buy this month. One curious trend — that I don’t get…at all — is curved smartphones. LG and Samsung believe that consumers want curved smartphones, respectively pushing the G Flex and Galaxy Round. While there have been curved smartphones in the past, the G Flex and Galaxy Round feature more aggressive curves. The idea is that curved smartphones offer better ergonomics for making calls and add new functionality with tilt functions. There’s a big chance that I’m missing something, but I don’t see…continued
It was an absolute pleasure chatting with IBTanked’s Harry Gibson at Vapetoberfest 2013. Known in the vaping community as “OCD,” Harry and his family (Mrs. OCD and Offspring) make high-quality made-in-the-USA glass cartomizer-tanks. Best of all, IBTanked’s tanks — and glass tubes for other atomizers — are very affordable. In the interview, Harry talks about IBTanked’s lineup, the new Tiny Tank, what makes his tanks different from the competition’s, the infamous “Thingie,” the gorgeous hand-painted glass tubes the company offers, and more.
In addition to having an outstanding … continued
