This thing is just awesome looking - and I want one.
So should you.
Also, head on over to io9 to read about how 9/11 changed the Watchmen movie.
Apparently Lego has teamed with Alcatel, and plans to release a Lego cell phone aimed at children [although, I imagine TONS of ‘adults’ would at least want, if not purchase, one].
The phone wouldn’t be all that modifiable - it essentially looks like a Lego product, and has interchangeable face plates. No adding to the phone from that Lego collection you still have stashed away…which sucks.
I’m of the opinion that it would be much much cooler if it played actual records…but this thing is still pretty fly. I wonder how it sounds?
The Neo Gramophone by Kinky Form is an edgy polygonal update on the traditional gramophone. The angled gramophone features multiple speakers and a subwoofer with the horn as the bass-reflex tube and plays music via streaming or loading tunes via Bluetooth. A simple subsurface menu (reacts upon touching the menu area) provides easy playing, simple usage like the traditional gramophone.
Yeah, this video some YouTuber put together is a little weird - but I was just listening to this track the other day for the first time in a little while, and felt like posting it.

This is just classic.

What a new Internet might look like is still widely debated, but one alternative would, in effect, create a a€oegated communitya€A where users would give up their anonymity and certain freedoms in return for safety. Today that is already the case for many corporate and government Internet users. As a new and more secure network becomes widely adopted, the current Internet might end up as the bad neighborhood of cyberspace. You would enter at your own risk and keep an eye over your shoulder while you were there.
John Markoff writes for the New York Times last week on the current state of the internet, and suggests that in order to ensure security and privacy we should ‘start over’. The solution he supports? A ‘gated community’ where you lose anonimity [read: privacy, fool] and freedom in order to protect your credit card numbers.
Sounds like a government scam to recreate the internet in a way that allows for closer scrutiny of the actions of individuals - trampling our rights. Not only is the idea that you can be ‘safe’ online hilarious [hackers, or whoever, will still get your information on a government run/controlled internet], but the idea that the government would do this for the sake of the common citizen is a joke. Say goodbye to torrents and filesharing, as well as any sites the government [or whoever ‘they’ put in charge] deem malicious / unsavory.
