One of the best pulled off pranks (if-you-will) that I've seen. Well worth the watch. Derren Brown is a genius. To make someone believe the apocalypse is real and happening sounds far fetched - but watch and see.
John Stossel is at it again. Interesting show, especially the drug war piece on Portugal. Does he shine to much of a positive light on it? or is it basically true? How many gangs/violence would there be here if it were legal? Makes you wonder.
Is this the Camera that changes it all? One picture - as many focus points as you want. Lytro introduces a camera that will instantly make everyone that has it better at taking pictures; much better. Not just that - think about the potential uses as well - especially if/when it becomes available for video. Surveillance cameras will never miss a face again. The crazy zooming in on anything in a picture that you see in movies or CSI - and then managing to focus the object - is now real.
XBMC is clearly the best option around for a media center. The interface is fantastic, there are multiple views and skins, the setup is easy, the add-ons work well, the filters and search options are great, and they keep improving it. The 360 media player is a joke compared to it. You can stream over nfs, samba, or even uPnP. Now that it can run on Raspberry Pi - people will be able to get the best setup for less than $35.
