Easy as pie: the delivery

It feels like everything is getting easier and quicker, doesn’t it? I mean in term of buying things. I can buy pretty much anything form my desk, and it will appear, as if by magic, the next day, or even the same hour in some instances. The wonder of the internet, right? Actually, only half right.

As the ordering process gets more and more streamlined, something else needs to get more on the ball at the same time. The tricky part.

Yes, even when our mice do the talking, it takes a man in a van to do the walking. As it were. And it’s this delivery/distribution/logistics function that is really the very difficult bit. It’s the bit that involves moving physical [...]

Check Out This Parody Of the Full House Intro Made With Grand Theft Auto V

This ridiculous video, produced by Merfish, is a clever parody of the old Full House intro—made entirely with Grand Theft Auto V. Instead of sunny San Francisco, it’s set in smoggy Los Santos—but other than that, it’s a strikingly similar remake (that is, until creepy Uncle Lester steps in for Michele Tanner).

Westboro Baptist Church Protesting Big Tech Or: God Hates VentureBreak

The Westboro Baptist Church has announced that it’s going to be picketing the biggest technology companies in Silicon Valley on August 12, which means that one of the stupidest groups in this country will be squaring off against one of the smartest. Do you know those warnings on the side of citronella jugs that say “Warning! Don’t Consume” that cause you to ask yourself who the hell would consume citronella? Well, those warnings were created for the Westboro Baptist Church. This should be a more lopsided fight than when Larry Holmes beat the hell out of Muhammad Ali in 1978 and felt so bad about it that he cried afterward.

And of course Westboro has a [...]

Fired From The Content Mill Or: How To Shave A Honey Badger’s Balls

Last month I was let go from my part-time job of writing at a content mill. Because my wife is concerned we’ll be sued if I mention their name directly, we’ll just say that the name of the content mill rhymes with Remand Pudios. The articles I wrote for Remand Pudios were posted on a site that may or may not rhyme with ePow.

You’re not stupid. Google around for content mills and see what comes up. If you’ve ever Googled how to make a rug from your collection of shaved back hair or wondered how to cure that rash that started showing up after your weekend in Vegas, you’ve probably landed there. Their articles use to clog up Google search [...]

Check Out Pepsi's Augmented Reality Bus Stop

Waiting for a bus can quickly become an extremely dull experience, so Pepsi decided to bring some excitement to a London bus shelter to make waiting a bit more interesting. For its latest ad campaign, Pepsi Max used augmented reality to turn a bus shelter’s wall into a fake window that appeared to show flying saucers, an attacking robot, and a loose tiger—among other unlikely subjects—making their way down the street.

Pepsi doesn’t say exactly what it used to make the illusions happen, but the system appears to rely on a camera outside the shelter that lets it capture real people and vehicles on the street. It seems no one was fooled for long—but it [...]

Check Out This Awesome Easter Egg In Sergey Brin's 20-Year-Old Resume

Sergey Brin, being Sergey Brin, doesn’t exactly need a resume anymore. But that wan’t always the case.

Back when he was a student at Stanford, you couldn’t just Google his name. He had to lay out his experience and achievements in a text document just like anyone else.

Someone stumbled upon his old Stanford student website (complete with fantastic ’90s GIFs), and it’s been spreading around the Web all day.

As highlighted by commenter pitchups on HackerNews, is now 20-year-old resume has a fun little Easter egg—a bit of fine print only visible as a comment within the page’s source code, detailing Brin’s mid-’90s [...]

Apple Maps Icon Tells Users To Drive Off A Bridge

There’s a lot of controversy over Apple’s new Maps app, which has replaced Google Maps in iOS 6. Some people hate it, some people like it. One thing is for sure though: the icon is terrible.

If you look very closely, the directions on the icon aren’t just ridiculous—they’re extremely dangerous.

Entrepreneur Nik Cubrilovic noticed this and made this awesome illustration:
