was kinda surprised and excited last night to see that the first part of that new godzilla anime is now up on netflix :)
was getting pretty late, so made a mental reminder to check it out this weekend… curious to chill out and give it a watch since i’ve been looking forward to it.
speaking of anime, my son was telling me the other day that amazon seems to have dropped that “anime strike” subscription bullshit, which is awesome news… so now all those new anime shows are available to you if you’re a prime member — niiiiiiiice.
been awhile, so figure i’d post a few random photos that caught my eye at some point over the past couple days…

Some gadgets work better in theory than practice. Many are concepts, designed more for the “whoa” factor or to make a point about the state and potential of technology in our world, than for practical use.
Here and there, though, a contraption that wows also works for everyday life. It catches you off guard with some capability you never thought you needed, or a level of customization or functionality you never knew was possible. Suddenly, you have to try it for yourself.
At CES, the exhibition halls are littered with tech that promises to track us, help us save money, time and resources and reflect our own lives back to us in ever-higher definition. They tap into trends of optimization — tailoring every aspect of our lives to our personal circumstances — as well as increasing peace of mind in a world where you can now answer your door or play with your pet, even when you’re not home.
nothing really here that made me go “whoa” or anything… with the possible exception about the part with the mobile gaming laptops coming out this year — if they actually perform pretty damn good, might be worth looking into.
aside from that, i usually only geek out over stuff like the new HDTVs… curious to see what they come out with this year, as i’m seriously thinking about maybe looking into getting a new 75″ 4K HDTV for the living room — if the price is right… speaking of which, i wonder if Vizio is coming out with a new kickass P-Series this year… and if so, if it’s worth waiting for.
almost can’t believe it’s already thursday… then again, i feel a little like a kid sitting in the classroom staring at the clock of late, since i’m counting the days until the 15th — after that, i’m off until january 2nd… which is awesome, fuck yeah! ;)
sexy bitches ;)
just stumbled across this and figured i should post it real quick before i fooget… ’tis the season afterall.
some good shit, mang.
Edge offers everything you would expect from a modern mobile browser, including a private browsing mode, voice search, and a QR code reader. It’s all wrapped in a user interface that will feel familiar to existing Edge users on Windows 10.
And that’s exactly who Edge for iOS is aimed at. Its biggest selling points are the ability to sync favorites, passwords, and reading lists between mobile and PC using your Microsoft account — and “continue on PC” functionality.
to be honest, i didn’t even know that microsoft was coming out with a new “edge” browser for iOS…. and yeah, the first thing that went through my head was along the lines of, “oh great, yet another effin browser to worry about! damnit.”
guess i’ll have to download it…
nothing like a random roll of sexiness to get the afternoon started…

The final stretch is still ahead; after Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend comes Cyber Monday, a time of massive online-only deals. Tech giant Amazon may have gotten into brick-and-mortar stores with its acquisition of Whole Foods in August, but it’s still keeping its online presence strong. Amazon is also running its Smile program for these deals, so you can use smile.amazon.com to donate 0.5 percent of your purchases to a chosen charity, a small but still helpful amount that might make the spending craze feel less awful.
Here are the best Cyber Monday tech deals that we’ve picked out so that you don’t have to scroll through pages of hairbands, pet food, and old films to get to them. And Black Friday deals listed here for Amazon devices and the Oculus Rift headset are continuing until midnight PST on November 27th, so they can be considered part of the Cyber Monday madness too.
well, here we are once again on the monday after black friday…. where you can find all these crazy awesome deals — right?
personally, i didn’t get shit this year on black friday and pretty much ignored it… i only got one thing and that was because i got an email from amazon and just happened to see it before deleting (the email storm was strong this year, geeeesh) and it was a deal they had going where you could pick three 4K UHD Blurays for $50… thought that was a pretty damn good deal, so i picked up ‘Star Trek Beyond’, ‘Man of Steel’, and ‘John Wick 2’ on 4K.
anybody get anything crazy good this year?
oh man, oh man… was thinking of binge watching season two of ‘stranger things’ with my friend tomorrow, but i kinda forgot that the new punisher was being released today on netflix.
well, i know what i’ll be doing later tonight :)
If you have a burning hatred of the so-called “notch” on your new iPhone X then boy do I have good news for you. Apple just approved an app called Notch Remover despite its urging of developers to embrace the notch by not masking it:
Don’t mask or call special attention to key display features. Don’t attempt to hide the device’s rounded corners, sensor housing, or indicator for accessing the Home screen by placing black bars at the top and bottom of the screen.
The app doesn’t remove the notch per se, it just makes the notch invisible by placing a black bar across the tops of images that you must then assign to your Wallpapers in the iOS settings. Nevertheless, the end result looks like a traditional unibrow status bar, instead of the two brows currently found at the top of the iPhone X’s home and lock screens.
In practice, the notch isn’t a problem in day-to-day usage, especially for people eager to justify their $1,000-plus purchases. So what’s another $0.99 for a silly little app that fixes a silly little problem?
personally, i think it looks better with this Notch Remover app, but that’s just me… might be worth a buck to try it out when i get my new iPhone X.

Mazda is a small automaker. Last year, it made about 1.2 million vehicles, which doesn’t sound like an insignificant number. But think about how Audi made more than 2 million in 2016, many of them luxury cars, and it puts the Japanese automaker’s place in the automotive world into more perspective.
Which is why it has to think out of the box when it comes to new car designs. To that, Mazda has decided we’ve reached display overload. In the Mazda Vision Coupe that was released at last month’s 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, the company that has made driver-oriented cars such as the RX-7 and Miata sports cars wants to stick to focusing on drivers first, and dazzling displays secondarily.
just happy to run across something like this, being a mazda convert and fan myself… absolutely LOVE this new “vision coupe” they’ve shown off, and even though i know it probably won’t hit production… g’damn, i’d love it if they did and would totally trade in my MX5 for one ;)
Apple’s new iPhone X costs $357.50 to make, according to estimates sourced from TechInsights and shared today by Reuters. At an estimated $357.50 to produce with a price tag of $999, the iPhone X has a gross margin of 64 percent, higher than the iPhone 8’s gross margin of 59 percent.
i can’t help but raise an eyebrow and feel a little nauseous whenever i see one of these cost breakdown posts, especially regarding the iPhone… i mean, the profit margin on these is
fucking sick pretty crazy.
that being said, i should be getting my iPhone X this week and i can’t wait to get my hands on it… i know it’s really silly, but i just can’t wait to send my nieces some silly animoji’s :)
just wanted to wish everybody a happy halloween :)
one of my favorite costumes i’ve seen so far in the office is one of the guys dressed up as a character from ‘Attack on Titans’ — how awesome is that? he said i was the only one around here that got / recognized it… haha
my son jayden and his girlfriends dressed up as Rick & Michonne from ‘The Walking Dead’ this year, which is pretty cool… kinda scary how well they pulled it off.
anybody dress up or see any really good ones so far?
PS. not sure i’m really looking forward to all the neighborhood kiddies again this year… was kinda rough last year, mostly because of all the damn teenagers.
PPS. left ;)
man, i love this time of the year… the weather starts to turn to the cooler side, break’n out the hoodies, and always look forward to going out to some halloween parties… aside from all the fuck’n leaves around my house, it’s great.
funny enough, i remember dressing up as steve jobs one year and nobody got it — ummm, yeah… go figure.
PS. anybody go to any cool halloween parties over the weekend? :)
Phone X availability is constrained but not as bad as it could have been after months of rumors that stock would be severely limited. Apple stores in the US, UK, China, Japan and elsewhere show five to six weeks for delivery, while the Apple Store in Hong Kong simply says “no supply available.” If you want it faster, the only other option is to join a line at an Apple retail store or buy off eBay for a markup. Otherwise, the only people getting an iPhone X on November 3rd were shopping online at 3AM in their underpants.
i probably should’ve gotten up at 3am like i originally planned on doing to pre-order the new iPhone X… but i stopped at a local AT&T store the other day to double-check on whether i was eligible, and how much the payoff would be etc… went ahead and paid off the $150 owed on my iphone, and setup an appointment for 10am this morning… got up, drove over, and met with the same guy i talked to the other day… but when it was all done, he said i probably wouldn’t be getting it until sometime between december 4-18th… ummm… fuck… seriously?!?!
oh well, i’m not all that surprised or upset though… feel like this kinda stuff happens all the time with new iphones.
anybody else getting the new iPhone X?
Amazon’s first Kindle e-reader was released 10 years ago this year, and while the actual anniversary isn’t for another month (the first device was released on November 19th) Amazon is marking the occasion by discounting several of its current Kindle devices by $30.
holy shit, has it really been 10 years since the kindle was first released?? wow… time really flies by, doesn’t it?
Developers already have access to a number of tools that let them see how real-world users experience their websites, but until now they weren’t able to see how their website user experience compared to others. Enter the Chrome User Experience Report, a public dataset of key user experience metrics gleaned from Chrome users who have opted in to usage statistic reporting.
The report offers up data from 10,000 origins and lets developers see how Chrome users experience the web from a wide variety of hardware, software and networks. Google hopes the report will help developers see where they’re doing well, identify areas for improvement and identify trends and advancements over time. At the moment the dataset focuses on loading metrics, but in a blog post on the release, Google says it hopes to expand coverage in future iterations.
well that’s pretty cool, and certainly welcome… always good to have some tools in your back pocket, especially if it helps and makes life a little easier.
