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 [...]
MostExclusiveWebsite.com, the website that only lets a single person in at a time (for 60 seconds), has really blown up over the last few days. At the time of this writing, more than 50,000 people are waiting in line for their one minute of exclusivity.
If you don’t want to wait a month to see what’s inside, check out the full reveal after the jump.
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).
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
CollegeHumor put together this awesome video that shows what it would be like if Google was an actual person you had to talk to. It’s hilariously accurate.
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:
There’s no better way to show off new technology than by deploying it in a real-world environment, where people can see for themselves.
To show off its new IPS monitors, LG combined nine displays in a three-by-three grid, fixed them to the floor of an elevator, and trolled a bunch of passengers.
