This is a video of some dudes demonstrating their custom built, 24-bottle bottle opener on a case of beer. Unfortunately for them, it leaves four unopened, underwhelming audiences worldwide and causing at least one blogger to question if we’ll ever be able to open 24 beers at once. Still, I’m going to need it or one like it to open all the beer bottles at the club I’m opening. It’s called, ‘GW’s Drink Alone Club’. It’s really like two clubs in one because after eight it turns into ‘GW’s Drink Alone In The Dark Club’. Sometimes a friend or neighbor will come over too but I’ll just be really quiet until they stop knocking and go away.

This is the eXtreme Deep Field, a composite shot of all the galaxies in a teensy view of space, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope’s two primary cameras over the past decade. Look at all those galaxies! And, I hope you’re sitting down — they’re all in this amount of space!:
Everything in the main picture is contained in that little box next to the moon. It’s estimated the universe is ~13.7-billion years old, and the eXtreme Deep Field depicts galaxies as old as 13.2-billion. Another 0.5-billion and we could see God flipping the light switch on! But that’s not what I came to talk about, I came to talk about aliens. If there are that many galaxies in that small amount of space, there must be all kinds of aliens out there. Big ones, little ones, green ones, purple ones — I bet the universe has them all! And, fingers crossed, strip clubs for every kind. Excuse me alien, but is this a male or female club? “Our species is entirely asexual, human.” Hoho, so both kinda! How much for a private dance?

Apple is pretty much single-handedly driving the growth of worldwide PC sales to companies and government, according to new data from Forrester Research. In an otherwise dismal outlook found in the research firm’s Global Tech Market Outlook 2012 to 2013 report, which sees growth of PC sales overall rising only around 2% in 2012, Apple is responsible for keeping that increase positive, with Windows PC sales projected to fall overall.
Apple’s share continues to show positive growth, while Windows devices are trending downward and will actually see negative growth in 2012 according to Forrester. While Macs are showing strong performance, with $ 7 billion in sales in 2012, up from $ 6 billion in 2011, the real driver is the iPad, which was responsible for $ 10 million in 2012, up 76% from 2011 sales.
But the inclusion of iPads in these numbers will no doubt strike some as problematic. Is the iPad a PC? Should it be counted as such when taking an overarching look at industry trends? Well Forrester isn’t stacking the deck, at least. It also tracks Android tablets (somewhat oddly lumped in with Linux PCs), which are on pace to grow 52% in 2012.
In the end, looking at the numbers without the iPad is like looking at half of a picture. And if you look at forecasted growth for 2013, Apple’s iPad becomes an even bigger piece of the picture. Sales of the iPad are expected to account for $ 15 billion in corporate PC sales, versus a modest $ 1 billion increase for the Mac, and flat sales of Windows machines at $ 124 billion, after having contracted a projected 3% between 2011 and 2012.
So while some may still ask if the iPad belongs in the PC category, it’s getting harder to argue against its inclusion, as the tablet’s fortunes continue to rise while the market overall hits a rough spot.Related Posts:

This is a 6-foot, 10-inch papercraft Samus Aran sculpture made from nothing but paper, glue and patience by skilled paper folder IAmThatOneGuy. Me? IAmNOTThatOneGuy. As a matter of fact, you and I haven’t even met before. And if the cops show up I was never here and I DEFINITELY didn’t leave traveling west on a scooter. I dunno, tell them I ducked into a sewer with a Ninja Turtle or something. But not Donatello — one of the cool ones.

While Microsoft may be trying to find its footing in the smartphone wars today, it turns out that the company almost had a 16 year head start on the iPhone. In a lengthy profile in Men’s Journal, Nathan Myhrvold — formerly the Chief Technology Officer at the company and the founder of Microsoft Research — reveals that he came up with the idea for an iPhone-like device way back in 1991 (IBM’s Simon, widely considered the first smartphone, wasn’t shown until the following year). The gadget would let you manage your schedule, use GPS to figure out where you were, and serve as a communication device that would give you access to email, fax, and paging services. But it looks like it was a little too costly for Microsoft’s blood, and the…
This is a video of a bear running around in a California neighborhood being filmed by a news helicopter when some guy who’s texting almost walks right into the thing. I kinda wish he would have. Is that wrong of me? Because I don’t feel like it is. If you walk around so oblivious that you don’t notice a giant bear in front of you eventually you ARE going to walk into traffic. At least this would have sort of a gladiator feel to it. TWO BEASTS ENTER, ONLY ONE LEAVES. Who will win, the bear, or the man with the cell ph– okaaaaay, we didn’t even have time to place bets.
