Mystery on Fifth Avenue

Mystery on Fifth Avenue

THINGS are not as they seem in the 14th-floor apartment on upper Fifth Avenue. At first blush the family that occupies it looks to be very much of a type. The father, Steven B. Klinsky, 52, runs a private equity company; the mother, Maureen Sherry, 44, left her job as a managing director for Bear Stearns to raise their four young children (two [...]

Western Digital developing 20,000RPM Raptor to take on SSDs?

Women In Bikinis Make Men Spend Stupidly… On Everything

It's no surprise that a woman in a bikini can increase a man's sexual appetite but research in the Journal of Consumer Research says that men who watched sexy videos or even handled lingerie had more appetite for everything - and it impacted their decisions about soda, candy and even money.

This is the story of Helmer. A linux cluster in a IKEA Helmer cabinet.... 3D computer rendering are very CPU intensive and the best way so speed up slow render problems, are usually to distribute them on to more computers.

Zappos.com is an awesome company. They actually pay new employees to quit.

Zappos.com is an awesome company. They actually pay new employees to quit.

A friend of mine actually works for Zappos in Las Vegas. He loves his job. Maybe it's time to move. It’s a hard job, answering phones and talking to customers for hours at a time. So when Zappos hires new employees, it provides a four-week training period that immerses them in the company’s strategy, culture, and obsession with [...]

Lamborghini Reventon #01 of 20 arrives at Las Vegas dealership

In that box is Lamborghini Reventon number one of twenty. Apparently, it's the only example which will be sold privately via a traditional dealership -- in this case, Lamborghini of Las Vegas.

Revolution OS: Documentary of Linux

My favorite quote: Giving the Torvalds Award to the Free Software Foundation is like giving the Han Solo award to the rebel fleet. I think many of you are not aware of how deep that analogy goes. http://video.google.com

Geekiest song ever: A Cryptography song entitled “Crypto”

"I looked through my mp3 collection and found some really geeky and funny songs. I thought, why not add a little more fun to my blog! The songs are really geeky and my readers might like them. I’ll be posting a song each Friday until I run out of songs (I have 6 songs at the moment, and maybe I find some more). I’ll also try to [...]

So here it is… the one week results from our previous poll on software piracy. In that short time, we’ve had nearly 500 photographers cast their votes and the outcome is quite interesting. It looks like Adobe’s high-end photo editing software packages (like Photoshop and Lightroom) are hot items in the pirated software [...]

Hold the phone. Did anyone ever know that “Hadouken” fireballs had hands in them?

I loaded up Steet Fighter II Champion Edition, they are there too but the hadouken sprite disappears when you try to pause the game. The hands are NOT there in The New Challengers or Super Turbo (neither red nor blue hadoukens). Seriously, did anyone ever notice this before? Now it sorta of feels like that damned FedEx arrow or those identical [...]

But I did make a claim on six boxes, this stuff is expensive. "Airborne - the herbal supplement company that once claimed to help fight off colds - will pay $23.3 [...]
