Old and busted: Christmas decorations.  New hottness: Steampunk earth boring vehicle busting through driveway for Halloween.

Oh noz…another one of those non-gadget posts has infiltrated the front page. Never fear, this is actually pretty cool. A guy named Peter has this insanely over the top idea of decorating his house with an earth boring vehicle breaking through his driveway — and all for Halloween. Peter’s past works include a sunken pirate ship and destroyed locomotive. Clearly, subtle is nowhere in this guys repertoire. But that’s A-OK in my book. Who…

The Lightning Guitar by ArcAttack

The Lightning Guitar by ArcAttack

After seeing ArcAttack perform, I’m literally speechless. Let’s just say their performance is like something you’ve never see before. Before we get deep into it, we’ll start off with simple terms: These dudes play a guitar in which the actual harmonics are created by lightning arcs from two massive Tesla Coils. Yes. The little metal dude standing in between two giant Tesla coils is actually controlling ever bit of the sound from his super geeky…

Sneak a phone into a UK prison?  The dogs will be watching…err..sniffing…

Dogs have long been used by police forces for means of identifying drug paraphernalia. It seems the nose…knows. You can’t fool a dogs olfactory senses as they’re really, really sensitive. But good ‘ol fido will have to put off retirement a bit longer because police forces in the UK, South Wales specifically, have trained one of their 5-year veterans to sniff out not only drugs, but phones too. He goes by the name of “Max”. This 5-year…

Brazil gets it: 100% legal to circumnavigate DRM for legal purposes. Fines given to rights holders for preventing fair use.

Brazil gets it: 100% legal to circumnavigate DRM for legal purposes.  Fines given to rights holders for preventing fair use.

At first, the title “100% legal to circumnavigate DRM for legal purposes” may seem a bit cryptic. As we’ve seen countless times throughout various governments, “legal uses” is a highly ambiguous and misleading term. But in the case of Brazil and their digital rights laws, it’s a far prettier picture as far as consumer protections are concerned. Here in the United States, it’s technically illegal to circumnavigate DRM (the digital…

Review: WinX DVD Ripper Platinum.  20 licenses up for grabs!

Movie buffs and downright digital junkies know the importance of backups. For if one hard drive fails, a backup can mean the difference between endless tears and a simple swap of a drive, and continuing of your life. While media pundits and rights holders continually fight against consumers and deem personal backups as some how illegal, it’s nice knowing that there are still ways to get the job done, and keep your content safe. I’ve used plenty of DVD ripping…

T-Mobile 2010 road map leaked. 5 more Android devices by years end?

T-Mobile 2010 road map leaked.  5 more Android devices by years end?

**This roadmap is believed to be a month or two old** Granted, Android devices aren’t the only thing coming before the ball drops us into 2011, but for the sake of this post, that’s all we’re going to touch on. One thing you’ll immediately notice is that some eagle eyes and/or Photoshoping skills are needed to clearly make out this road map. But rest assured, we’ve toiled our eyeballs so you don’t have to. Moving on… Motorola…
