    This is a month long time-lapse of artist Kyle Lambert fingerpainting an ultra-realistic Morgan Freeman using the iPad app Procreate. Me? I've procreated before. Jk jk, amateurcreated. It was awkward and I didn't get paid. Also, I bet this painting actually IS a photograph... / Continue →

    In news that's sure to set the computing world ablaze (or not at all), Bill Gates has confessed that the control-alt-delete keyboard combination was a mistake and the fault of a keyboard designer who refused to add a one-button equivalent. How enthralling! If I was any more ... / Continue →

    This is a series of women dressed as internet browsers (previously: fashion sketches of women dressed as internet browsers). Which is your favorite? I like Opera. And I'm not just saying that because I would constantly try to throw things through her hair hoop, but I would a... / Continue →

    In news I can't quite wrap my head around (although I did manage to get my penis around it twice and and tie it off in a knot), a group of researchers at the University of Washington are running tests to determine if the entire universe is just a massive simulation program runn... / Continue →

    This is a picture of a lady that has a Photoshop toolbar tattooed on her arm. On top of some flowers. In black and gray with just a hint of blue (I'm stretching this out). She looks like a girl I used to know. OMG -- Sarah is that you?! "She can't hear you, GW." SARAAAAAAH... / Continue →

    This is a very brief history of operating system scroll bars. It's not inclusive though, because I don't even see the one I'm using on there. Regardless, they've really come a long way, haven't they? SPOILER: Nope. Thanks to Deacon, who, based on his email, is apparently VE... / Continue →

    Because the new iPhone's SIRI personal assistant was practically made for novelty purposes, here she is responding to a bunch of bull$h!t. I honestly don't know who to feel sorrier for: SIRI, or the people taking the time to try to come up with the things to ask her. Kidding,... / Continue →

    The Soup airing tonight on E! (10/9c) is gonna be taken over (infected?) by The Walking Dead and I'd like to be the first to say I wouldn't hesitate to drink Norman Reedus' bathwater. Also: pick all the hairs out of his bar of soap and glue them to my upper lip. This is a 2:3... / Continue →

    Two researchers are developing an algorithm designed specifically to 'de-pixelize' 8-bit (and 16-bit) video game graphics in real-time into smoother, more flowing ones. This. changes. everything. No, no it doesn't -- but it does change the amount of time I'll spend playing ... / Continue →

    This is a little Internet Explorer voodoo doll somebody made in an attempt to kill off the interweb browser. Neat idea, but I don't know why you wouldn't just stab the program directly. Which is exactly why I'm gonna sneak up on my laptop while it's in sleep mode tonight and ... / Continue →

    If you wanted to buy all the current iPhone apps, guess how much it would cost? Go on, take a stab at it. But wait till I'm a safe distance away, you wield a knife like a crazy person. BOOM: 55,732 apps for a total of $144,326.06. Which, amazingly, is still $118K over my li... / Continue →
