idiots using iPads to video kids

Apple’s latest campaign further encourages people to be that asshole that videos stuff with their iPad

Thursday, April 17, 2014

Anyone with kids old enough to require that you show up at some sort of recital or school concert knows that it is nearly impossible to get decent video of that event. In the old days, the parents who cared would actually bring a video camera to the event. Only 1/3 of those parents knew how to properly adjust that camera to meet the challenging lighting conditions, but at least they could zoom in on little Johnny or Becky Sue. Cut to 1 year ago, and now at least one mom or dad in each couple was holding up their cell...

How to: Get your 30-inch Apple Display to work with your new Mac Pro

Monday, April 7, 2014

What’s another $100 when you’ve already spent $10,000 on a Mac Pro, am I right? Here’s another tip from my “this might only affect me but I’ll throw it out there anyway” department (and I suppose this could also be filed under “First-World-Problems” too)… So after over 2 months of waiting, I finally received my super cool Mac Pro, (12-core, 64GB Ram, AMD FirePro D700 etc.). I connected it to a crappy 21-inch DVI monitor I had laying around while setting it up,...

Pretty sure SelfieBot could raise $4 million in one day on KickStarter

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s April Fool’s Day, but if there’s one thing I LOVE, it’s well made, clever videos that show us how ridiculous, self-centered, and technology-dependant we humans have become! And yes, I want one. via the geniuses at gosphero  Read More

This looks cool: Pyle’s Street Blaster

Friday, March 28, 2014

Mmmm… 1000 watts… This Bluetooth boom box from Pyle Audio looks almost exactly like one I had in 1992 that I bought because I was young and thought it looked like a bazooka. Still the thing was crazy loud, and this looks similarly promising. The Street Blaster is a full range stereo speaker system offering a high output music listening experience, as well as Bluetooth and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology using any iOS and Android device. To expand the listening options even further the Street Blaster...

Porn Site shown on Local TV new producer’s iPhone

Sunday, March 23, 2014

And THIS ladies and gentlemen is why I will dive across the room and knock my phone from anyone’s hand who picks it up. Before WGN-TV Chicago ran its feature on a new app that allows juveniles to expunge their criminal records, the segment producer should have first expunged his iPhone’s browser history. See if you can spot PornHub making a cameo in his recents. Thanks to faithful Macenstein reader Jeff for the tip! via Daily Mail  Read More

Steve Jobs makes Captain America’s “To-Do” list

Captain America Steve jobs

Captain America: The Winter Soldier doesn’t come out for a couple weeks still, yet a Redditor who was lucky enough to attend a screening managed to snap a still of Captain America’s “To Do” list, which lays out all the notable things The Cap apparently feels he missed out on while frozen in ice all those years. I’m not sure what Cap expects “ToDo” with/to Steve Jobs, maybe just read his Bio, but it is certainly an honor for the Apple... Read More

How to: Put up big numbers in Samurai Siege alliance wars

Samurai Siege

By far the best thing about Samurai Siege is the Alliance wars, where you work alongside your fellow alliance members, trying to put up more war points than your rival alliances. Of course the WORST thing about these wars is the long wait times to rebuild your army so you can attack again. I figured I would take a quick minute to share MY tactic when battling, which allows me to easily put up 1000-1500 war points in a 12 hour period, and even more if my family is away or I’m... Read More

Review: Threes

Threes iPhone app

It takes a brave journalist, a hero, some would say, to recommend the top-selling app on iTunes, but that is just what this man is willing to do. Fair warning, Threes (on sale for $1.99) is a number-based puzzle game, so if you are an idiot, you may want to steer clear. However, at its […]
