Doesn’t seem like it’s a rumor anymore. It was reported earlier that around 20% of Yahoo’s workforce will be cut, with Yahoo saying that that number is misleading. But which company would want to admit to how much people they have to layoff? Someone first alerted the public of these layoffs on November 23rd, saying that they will being after Thanksgiving, but before “XMAS.” Here are some of the other tips received: More »


How many ways to use a keyboard can you think of? I bet making waffles wasn’t one of them, even though it should be. Chris Dimino created a waffle-making typewriter, using an actual Smith-Corona Coronamatic typewriter, for the exhibit “Next Best…Ding!” which showcases reinventions of the typewriter. The typewriter works like any other waffle-iron; it just serves QWERTY keyboard-shaped waffles instead of those boring circular ones. Break me off a shift key please! More »


If you haven’t watched Wall-E, you should because it’s a great movie. But if you have, then you’ll understand why Russian space corporation Energia has initiated a project to remove 600 pieces of trash we dumped in space (by trash I mean things like satellites). Energia plans to start 2023 and continue the project for 15 years, using a pod that knocks debris out of orbit and towards the part of atmosphere that will cause them to burn up. More »

I thought I would only see this in TV shows. Turns out Sectra engineered a Visual Imaging Table that uses CT and MRI scans to create a 3D representation of a human body on a multitouch table. One great thing about this is that you can use a “virtual knife” to examine the body. More »


Facebook isn’t perfect. There are tons of privacy issues with the information users post on the social networking site, but besides that I’d say the site works rather well and I’m sure the over 500 million other users would agree. Which is why I’m wondering how successful the new social networking site Diaspora will be. More »
