Cat, meet iPad.  Kaks’ brain, meet pile o’ goo.


The Next Generation

April 13, 2010

So everyone’s talking about the iPad, blah blah blah.  But want to see something really cool and totally nerdy involving the iPad?  Check out this.  Yeah.  I am so nerdy that this interested me.  I mean, come on!  The future is here!  The iPad is exactly like the console that Data used to tap to get the Enterprise to do cool things like go into warp speed.  And now the guy who played Data is tapping on an iPad!  IT BLOWS MY MIND.

I really should stop letting the entire world know how incredibly geeky I am.


Twitter Etiquette Lessons

Aimee Mann and Ice T just had a Twitter duel. Apparently she insulted his acting and he didn’t like that so much…

I love that this is news.

(It’s totally entertaining enough for weekend posting.)


Talking to Animals

April 2, 2010

Whether or not you like Google, there is absolutely no doubt that our contemporary culture could not exist without it. Their latest release (notably, on April 1st) will revolutionize the way humans and animals communicate: Google Translate for Animals. Be sure to take a tour of the application to learn more.

For an example of how this ground-breaking technology works, check out this video:

I just hope they leave it up long enough so we can all enjoy it. I love April Fool’s Day.

As my friend Daphne pointed out, this is undoubtedly the single best use of the second person ever.

Also, the fact that there were once six foot sea scorpions will keep me awake for weeks.  I don’t care if they haven’t been around for a billion years.  Don’t tell me they couldn’t come back.
