What to do when you can’t connect to the Internet with Google Chrome?

Needed to reset the router. Did so, lost inter­net con­nec­tion while it was reboot­ing. Had Chrome open and refreshed my con­nec­tion. This neat little run­ning jump­ing game appears. It appears to just be a ‘no con­nec­tion’ screen… but press the space bar. And have fun!

This takes the cake: To the audiophile, this $10,000 Ethernet cable apparently makes sense

Wow. This is some ser­i­ously messed up lan­guage used to describe ‘premi­um-grade’ Audio Eth­er­net cables — yes, you read that right, Eth­er­net cables for the Audi­o­phile mar­ket. My word… All insu­la­tion slows down the sig­nal on the con­duct­or inside. When insu­la­tion is unbiased, it slows down parts of the sig­nal dif­fer­ently, a big prob­lem for […]

I’m Crazy and I’m gaming for 24 hours for an amazing cause! Sponsor Me!

Expected: Keurig’s attempt to ‘DRM’ its coffee cups totally backfired

Con­sumers hate DRM — in music, in movies, in any­thing — but […]

Better than Flappy Bird. Because Orbits!

Yeah, Flappy Bird got old quick, but this little gem has me trapped in its grav­ity well (see what I did there?). Flappy Space Pro­gram, just like Flappy Bird, is simple. Click to launch your bird. Now, keep tap­ping to over­come grav­ity and launch your bird into orbit. Simple no? Ok, now add anoth­er bird. […]
