Initial off Just in time for the weekend, a ridiculous new gadget has just occur out - the Norte Photoblocker. This is apparently a useful beer cooler with sensors that can detect a flash from a digital camera or cellphone and responds with its personal bright flashes to theoretically block the picture from coming out appropriately. Sheesh. It utilized to be you could get drunk and make an ass out of your self with no ending up on Facebook - and now we have the Norte Photoblocker to effortlessly guard you from your possess common sense that should be telling you \"Do not get drunk at that raging frat get together and puke all above the property\" in the 1st place.
Next As a followup to the news story posted very last week, it seems you truly will be equipped to get an Android cell phone that arrives with Ice Cream Sandwich (the new edition of the Android working technique) in the US
as of today's creating. Verizon has just introduced the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone which not only runs Ice Cream Sandwich but supports 4G. Of program, the price tag is $299 a two-calendar year contract with Verizon, so will not get way too fired up still, early adopters. After working with my 3G smartphone for a very little beneath a thirty day period straight (which runs Gingerbread - the predecessor to Ice Cream Sandwich) - I are not able to say I am specifically foaming at the mouth for an upgrade yet both. It is nonetheless great for a two-12 months-previous cell phone and I have zero complaints to date other than the inexplicable wireless router matter I blogged about some time back.
Last but not least In still one more shining instance of why DRM is a craptastic concept - standup comedian Louis CK has noted that a goodwill experiment he undertook has paid off handsomely. He place up a video of his newest stand-up special \"Louis CK Live At The Beacon www.bestiphoneappsrabia.com
Theater\" for only $5 on his website - and refused to place any type of DRM on it. Four days laterhe's presently seen far more than $five hundred,000 in total product sales of the movie from his web page and realized a earnings of more than $200,000 personally.
I am a big Louis CK admirer myself - his standup comedy and his Tv demonstrate work with HBO and Fx is absolutely hilarious - so I'm absolutely applauding him for trusting in his fanbase and using a stand towards DRM. Some people are undoubtedly pirating his comedy exclusive even now, but nearly supplying it away at $five with no DRM and seeing that numerous product sales in this kind of a shorter time period of time however claims a ton about the standard manifeste. Maintain up the very good function, Louis - I will be springing for a duplicate myself as nicely to assist you. The movie can be downloaded from his website at http//www.louisck.net, by the way.
