There’s nothing like actually visiting one of these museums but I like showing the 12-year-old some of the exhibits in the Louvre, Smithsonian, and NASA museums.
I guess because I’m the “new” father, this place would freak me out to send my child into (I’d still do it) but my wife said she wouldn’t have a problem letting him play in this “risky” playground. I certainly agree with her when she says similar things to this article – we protect children too much at times.
The slow motion video of this phenomenon is fascinating.
Along with our own look at the public beta, there are a lot of other takes. This one is particularly interesting to me.
Reading the reports about this demo are very interesting but it also seems pretty clear this is a long way off from being a real product.
This puts the lawsuit to bed – until the next time Samsung copies Apple.
Tim Cook is scheduled for 6:05 PM PT today (Monday).
Great piece on the inevitable rise of “Little Vehicles”. Many city residents would be much better served by various combinations of LVs, especially if cities are redesigned away from cars.
This history of (disgusting) wine coolers is actually interesting. Sadly, it seems wine coolers are making a comeback.
I’m one of those customers. The difference in price and availability between Amazon Canada’s offerings and Amazon US is staggering, even when you include the exchange rate.
One of the oddest, most interesting shows I ever saw in Las Vegas was Blue Man many years ago. I’d love to see them again sometime.
I haven’t read Frankenstein since college but I’ve been poking around this annotated edition and I might just make the time to curl up with it over the weekend.
We don’t often post obituaries of animals here but Koko had a profound affect on me as a kid.
I’m a City Kid who has never had any interaction with horses (I’ve touched exactly three in my life and ridden one once for 60 minutes) but they have always fascinated me. This is a great story about the history of these majestic creatures.
I’d bet that $100 VIP tour money that Prince would have hated this. But the man should have had a damn will.
Ahrendts is a very interesting person who I think is first in line as the next CEO of Apple.
There was a very real concern after Jobs killed the ATG that the company would lose its edge. Happily, those of us who thought that were wrong.
There’s a blood moon on 27 July and I was looking for info about it that led me to this website. It’s one to bookmark because it lets you know not only when a solar or lunar eclipse will occur but whether or not you can see it from your location.
Non-soccer/football fans don’t realize it but the shape and “flight path” of a soccer ball is crucial. No more so than during the World Cup.
I really wished we lived near an Apple Store. I’ve heard nothing but good things about these camps and I’m sure my 12-year-old would love them.
What a great story.
I may just be an uncouth peasant but good God that is one butt ugly watch.
I’ve been burned by a couple of failed Kickstarters and have had several more fail to meet their goals. This article has some good ideas on how to make sure you don’t get ripped off.
For most of the world, The World Cup is “The Greatest Spectacle in Sport”.
This deals with major league baseball and ejections so, needless to say, it’s very NSFW.
Everyone loves bubbles.
This is a fun shot to zoom in on and scroll around. Don’t bother to check – I already looked to see if there were any staff in the windows of the palace.
It’s a really interesting dynamic in my new family. I want our 12-year-old to do “his fair share” of the household chores (just like I did when I was his age) but it’s a struggle to get him to help with things he’s not used to helping with. It’s undoubtedly too late for many of you parents out there to implement this strategy but it might be something you can pass on to new parents.
I was 6’1″ as a 12-year-old and played on those rims. I had a blast destroying the other kids in my school. Deadspin did their math wrong. The kid isn’t 6’9″ – he’s 6’11”. Not that it makes much of a difference here.
I may be an outlier here but I really don’t much care what happens to my body after I’ve died. If it’s cheaper and more environmentally friendly to be “aquamated”, then that’s fine by me.
