Tue, 27 Sep 2011 13:41:11 +0000I still remember very vividly. Recently I was headed from somewhere in Arizona to San Francisco on flight 824. As usual, the flight was pretty darn boring, and life was same as usual. Then suddenly, nearing our destination in San Francisco, the airplane started free-falling. I thought it would stop but no, the free-fall just kept getting worse for what felt like 20 minutes. Even worse, I could feel the plane’s nose slowly turning towards earth, which made me think that it’s impossible at this point for the airplane to correct itself. One of the doors on the plane fell off and an old passenger’s seat broke off completely, somehow he hung onto the door of the airplane. I was too far away from him to help him and was barely getting my own seat belts on but gladly someone got him back on the plane. The worst? We are still accelerating onto earth. This is going to be surely death. After what feels like a million years, we suddenly feel the pilot boosting its thrusters as hard as he could and the plane slowly comes back towards the sky while scraping the bottom of the plane against earth. Later, … Continue reading

Let me just add that I literally went on a rampage about how Windows Vista sucked (and it did big time) but I have to give Microsoft some props on Windows 7 (which I love) and I think Windows 8 will be another great products too, keep up the good work guys.

Sat, 03 Sep 2011 06:56:05 +0000We’ve seen Google launching their Nexus S phone into space with balloons before and here’s another cool fact that Nexus S was used for brains for robots at NASA. Apparently, NASA scientists say that Android is easier to use and easily implemented into their space testing programs due to its open-source nature. This is quite true, Android is becoming more than just a phone or tablet, it can be used for many embedded projects.
Fri, 02 Sep 2011 20:43:06 +0000Android 2.3.6 is rolling out on Nexus S phones this week, this will be a fun update. For those of you rooted on your Nexus S, I highly advise to just wait couple more days as there should be plenty of ROMs with Android 2.3.6 instead of trying to do the OTA update yourself.

Wed, 31 Aug 2011 23:43:47 +0000Using a Google Voice account, a web server, BetaBrite scrolling LED, Brian Gaut from Plasma2002.com has created a DIY party LED scroller that lets your friends and guests to SMS text sorta like those large displays at shows and events. Best of all, Brian posted all of his PHP code so you can easily replicate it, you only have to buy the parts. After testing the sign at a party held at home, I noticed that people really seemed to enjoy it. One part of it that led to people enjoying it was the fact that the messages were anonymous. While it would have been really easy to make the sign show who the message was from, if theres one thing I’ve learned from the internet, it’s that people love being anonymous. Leaving a message that your peers can see, without knowing who wrote it, will always invoke the most curious behavior. Also, with a little tinkering with this project and Twitter API, I bet you can turn this into an LED Twitter timeline too. See video of this SMS textin’ LED scroller in action:

Tue, 30 Aug 2011 16:44:36 +0000Can you imagine what iPhone 5 would look like? Aatma Studio has put together their own concept version of the iPhone 5, which features ultra-thin display/phone, holographic display, and a multi-touch adjustable virtual keyboard. From what we have seen so far from Apple in the last couple launches of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, and iPhone 3G, this is probably very unlikely. Hey but you can always enjoy this video, it seems to me more like iPhone 10.
Sat, 27 Aug 2011 03:30:42 +0000Above is the video of Nokia’s latest mobile OS, Symbian Belle, which “finally” does a lot of things that other smartphones do already. The video is in French but we can see clearly from the video that Nokia has finally stepped up and did something about their losing shares of the mobile market. Of course, this doesn’t mean Nokia is going to pick up raving fans like Android or iOS just yet but it does look very promising. Nokia who? Sorry, there’s a company that makes cellphones called Nokia for those of you who don’t know. By the way, the last time I saw anyone carrying a Nokia phone here in the U.S. was like over 2 years ago.

Fri, 26 Aug 2011 18:19:24 +0000Developers have found a way to run Android OS on the HP TouchPad. The good part is that TouchPad is no longer just a piece of deadware but its life could be elongated with installation of Android OS. The bad part is that it’s still running Android Froyo, which isn’t a great OS for the tablet device and we would like to see Android Honeycomb running on it. And of course, I probably wouldn’t install Android on a HP TouchPad anyways, WebOS is actually has some really good UI (user interface) I wouldn’t trade Android for. What do you think? Useless?
Fri, 26 Aug 2011 09:00:05 +0000Just when you thought fingerprint sensors was cutting-edge technology, Gelsight comes along, a new 3D surface sensing material that can detail at even microscopic levels. Gelsight has many applications such as using it as a 3D scanning sensor and even find out the small details in a bullet mark. This is pretty top-notch stuff, I wouldn’t be surprised to see it implemented in future 3D fingerprinting applications. See Gelsight.com for more details.

Thu, 25 Aug 2011 18:47:24 +0000Have you ever thought if blackholes did really exist in space and if they would ever be used for time travel? Well, I have, I am certain time travel is possible in the future, at least slowing down time is theoretically possible by quantum physics. So, are blackholes real though? Watch NASA’s Swift Satellite that spots a blackhole consuming a star! In late March 2011, NASA’s Swift satellite alerted astronomers to intense and unusual high-energy flares from a new source in the constellation Draco. They soon realized that the source, which is now known as Swift J1644+57, was the result of a truly extraordinary event — the awakening of a distant galaxy’s dormant black hole as it shredded and consumed a star. The galaxy is so far away that the radiation from the blast has traveled 3.9 billion years before reaching Earth. Most galaxies, including our own, possess a central supersized black hole weighing millions of times the sun’s mass. According to the new studies, the black hole in the galaxy hosting Swift J1644+57 may be twice the mass of the four-million-solar-mass black hole lurking at the center of our own Milky Way galaxy. As a star falls toward a … Continue reading
Thu, 25 Aug 2011 17:46:53 +0000Want to make your 3 or 4 year old get good at numbers super quick? How about building your kids a DIY counting box? My son—now four, but three when I conceived this project—loves numbers and counting. More than a few times I’ve peeked in at night to find him asleep with a calculator in one hand and a flashlight in the other. And one of his favorite things to do with the calculator is incrementing “1 + = = = = = = = = = =” until he can’t keep his eyes open any more. I decided to build him a dedicated machine that would do nothing but count up and count down. via hackaday, Project Page
Wed, 24 Aug 2011 19:42:15 +0000iPad 2 versus Galaxy Tab 10.1, who will win the battle of tablets? Some things that the iPad 2 falls behind the Galaxy Tab 10.1: 1. I found that camera on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 was much better, indeed the Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a camera sensor 3 times bigger than iPad 2, which allows clearer/better photos/videos. Go look at any other iPad 2 vs. Tab 10.1 comparisons, you will see that camera is much better. 2. The stereo speakers on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 proved to me more useful (at least for me), why in the heck did Apple put mono, single speakers on their iPad 2? I have no idea but it sucks over having stereo sound. 3. Thinner and lighter than iPad 2 – Galaxy Tab 10.1 is indeed thinner and lighter than iPad 2. Besides real facts, the Tab 10.1 “feel” a ton lighter than iPad 2 due to its longer design while the iPad 2 feels like a big brick, well it is a big brick. 4. Customizable widgets – iPad 2 is boring with limited number of things you can do like put app icons and change background images while the Galaxy Tab 10.1 … Continue reading

Sun, 21 Aug 2011 20:10:59 +0000If you were lucky, you could have picked up an HP TouchPad, a 9.7-inch WebOS-based tablet device for just $99 at your local Wal-mart or BestBuy. The crazy frenzy started last week when HP announced discontinued product development and support for their latest HP TouchPad only less than after 2 months of launch date. Only days after that, HP TouchPad has started selling at only $99 at various retail stores. Now, here comes the fun part, this $99 tablet device is probably the deal of century for a multi-touch tablet device. In fact, if you compare HP TouchPad at $99, it’s better than iPad 2, Galaxy Tab 10.1, and any other tablet device on the market, heck I would want a couple of them. So I did literally go driving around town trying to pick up 3 of these tablets at my local Wal-Mart and BestBuy for hours yesterday and today because I wanted to give one for my mom and dad. In the end, no luck for me, all the crazies has bought them already and some selling it back on eBay for around $140. So what? HP has sold over 350,000 of these $99 TouchPad tablets over the … Continue reading
Wed, 17 Aug 2011 23:04:41 +0000(A typical comments box at a Korean website) South Koreans are now deeply hurt and mad at Apple as a whole country about Apple’s recent lawsuit to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 10.1, which has been halted of sales in Europe. So what? There’s evidence that Apple has altered evidence images, as see here: One thing I (and probably most people of the world) have no tolerance of cheating, stealing, and lying. Clearly, Apple is just trying to sue Samsung to slow them down but I predict that this will have seriously consequences to the effect how people view Apple as a company. Hey, don’t ask me, ask the people of South Korea, many of them have Macbooks and iPhones, those hardcore Apple fans are not happy, even if they don’t own Tab 10.1. This is also evidenced by growing number of South Koreans suing Apple back for GPS location tracking. Read more on the naked truth at AndroidProphet.com.

Tue, 16 Aug 2011 17:13:56 +0000The other day I was searching on YouTube for some Korean clay pot information as I am currently making some great Korean rice wine with my new Korean Clay Pot, also called “Hang-Ah-Ri” or “Onggi” in Korean. Well, I found Adam Field who spent 10 months in South Korea as an apprentice under master Korean clay pot makers. Check out this video as Adam builds a Korean clay pot from ground up, it’s pretty awesome. Why Korean clay pots? Korean clay pots has been used by Koreans for centuries to ferment their foods like kimchi, soy bean paste, and even Korean rice wine which I am using it for. Korean clay pots actually allow air through its pores and also naturally controls moisture levels inside the pot, allowing perfect fermentation environment, resulting in better kimchi and rice wine. You can check out more information about Korean clay pots at AdamFieldPottery.com. Also, you can learn how to make real, authentic Korean rice wine at my site Travel-Korea.net.

Sat, 13 Aug 2011 22:37:11 +0000I’ve been thinking about adding some shade to my recent flowers I planted in the garden due to some of the flowers burning and rotting away in the California sun, which is very strong. For this, I was thinking about perhaps putting a tarp over it with some pvc piping to make a mini tent but I found a better idea, use pvc pipes and bend them in a way you can put garden share over it. And in the winter months, you can swap it out for thin plastic sheeting to get a greenhouse effect. This seems much simple and more cost effective over buying greenhouse kits on Amazon. Project Page

Thu, 11 Aug 2011 22:05:36 +0000Android smartphones have indeed proven to be more popular than any other smartphones including Nokia and Apple, with a market share of over 40% while everyone else falls short of 20%. What next? This just means we, as consumers will get better prices and better products. Android smartphones range from low-budget teenager phones to 3D phones like HTC Evo 3D, allowing most households to afford one while Apple is really for niche market for those people who are brand-whored. As for Nokia and RIM, their innovations is clearly lacking, I have not seen a single person carry a Nokia phone is the last 2 years by the way.

The process seems pretty simple enough, make a resin-based door handle, stick a color-changing RGB LEDs on the back of the handle.

Thu, 11 Aug 2011 17:51:37 +0000TSA recently closed one of its terminals due to a bomb threat (or so they thought it was) and calls in the bomb squad and the FBI. Of course, this wasn’t actually a bomb but a DIY mint tin project. The Omaha Police Department’s bomb squad was called after a suspicious-looking item was found in a carry-on bag shortly before noon at the airport’s north checkpoint in Terminal B. Screening operations were suspended, and the B concourse was evacuated. Operations were not disrupted in Terminal A, according to a Transportation Security Administration official. The item was cleared and airport operations returned to normal about 2 p.m. Breault said the device was harmless, “but it did trigger the proper response due to its suspicious appearance.” Tisk, tisk, TSA simply needs to hire more qualified people at its checkpoints to better filter the real terrorists over innocent passengers with their latest electronic project. Based on this incident, it seems pretty clear to me that you probably don’t want to carry anything that has wires, chips, etc…etc… I think that’s the way TSA works though, they hire people who probably barely qualify for McDonalds and can’t tell that the Large Ice Coffee … Continue reading → [...]
Wed, 10 Aug 2011 23:28:48 +0000Apple’s next target after Samsung? Motorola, Motorola’s latest 10.1-inch Android tablet has been deemed to have copied Apple’s iPad designs. Come on! That is ridiculous. At least suing Samsung for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 made some kind of sense as its lighter and slimmer than iPad but suing Motorola for the Xoom tablet which does not look anywhere near an iPad??? Clearly, Apple has hired some dumb-nut lawyers to do their job of trying to take down Android via proxy companies like Samsung and Motorola. And no, there’s absolutely no clear reason behind it other than Apple is getting desperate over explosion of Android tablets. It’s more like this, Apple wants to sue any company that makes anything that looks like a rectangular slab. Well I will stop there, why am I wasting my time on another stupid lawsuit that Apple will lose anyways. Apple’s lawyers are bunch of wussies by the way, they should get it over with and just sue Google directly instead. Wussies, that’s not a company I want to associate with and there starts my boycott with Apple (again). My true, naked thoughts continued over at AndroidProphet.com.

Wed, 10 Aug 2011 01:51:02 +0000Personally, I think the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the best tablet on the market now. It’s thinner AND lighter than an iPad 2, can be overclocked to 1.4Ghz dual-core, and even run Ubuntu! So, is Apple getting desperate? I think so, they are tired of losing their tablet market to Android tablets so they are focusing all their attention on suing other companies instead of innovating. What a crock of shi* I’d say. If Apple wants to prove something, they should release more products during a course of year instead of suing others. Once Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple was quoted saying, “good artists copy, great artists steal”: Perhaps Apple saw this coming, their tablet market being downsized by Sammy. Well, don’t take it personal, here’s what I really think happened.
Tue, 09 Aug 2011 23:43:58 +0000Sometimes making your own custom TV mount could be the only answer or you might be stuck with a TV that’s taking up unnecessary space. For those of you who are trying to customize your TV mount options, take a look at this DIY that shows you how to make a sliding TV mount that allows your TV to slide horizontally. I wanted a TV mount that I could attach to the upper portion of my entertainment center, but could not find one that would fit without modification, so I do what everyone here does – make my own. I’ll show you how I made mine and hopefully give you some ideas on how to modify mine to fit your needs. I’ll also try to point out things I would do differently and my learning opportunities (mistakes). I would like something like this done for my livingroom TV so I can slide the TV across the wall if I want to and better yet perhaps be able to change the angle of TV. With the right tools and a little imagination, I don’t see why not. Don’t want to build your own? Try the full motion TV Mount. via instructables
