The Frinkiac is what the Internet was made for.

The Frinkiac is a thing of pure beauty. A combination search engine + meme creator that can dissect the entirety of the Simpsons catalog, frame by frame.

If you’ve lived most of your life quoting The Simpsons as I have, it’s nothing short of a miracle. This must be what it feels like when a deaf person finally gets those implants and can hear for the first time.

Tech is the new status indicator.

According to TechCrunch “Tech is the new status indicator. What laptop you carry, what phone you own, what smartwatch you wear is as reliable a signal of your status and position as dirty dungarees and a hobo bindle were during the Great Depression.”

If this isn’t a sign of “nerd” being cool and mainstream, I don’t know what is.

 

We’re not going to war with North Korea

Not over a movie studio getting hacked.

“We didn’t go to war with North Korea when they murdered American soldiers  ​in the 1970s with axes. We didn’t go to war with ​North Korea when they fired missiles over our allies. We didn’t go to war with ​North Korea when one of their ships torpedoed an alliance partner and killed some of their sailors. You’re going to tell me we’re now going to go to war because a Sony exec described Angelina Jolie as a diva? It’s not happening.”

Probably not ever.  Read more of this post

I hate bottled water but…

 

This is so awesome. Well done Honda.

 

 

You still have the issue of the bottle but the product, the story, the execution, are all fantastic.

 

All you have to do now is bring the FCX Clarity to the US. And help us build a network of hydrogen filling stations.

I’ve seen the future of video games and it is awesome

In this game, one player wears Oculus Rift, the others do not. The guy wearing OR can see the bomb and interact with it, with tools. The other players have bomb diffusing manuals. Without seeing the bomb, and relying only on the first player’s description they have to talk him through disarming the bomb before it explodes.

Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes:
