LEGO builders tend to favor certain themes to build in. One of the most popular themes is Space, which encompasses moonbases, spaceships, mech suits, and other science fiction type builds. With the popularity of Space, it only makes sense that No Starch Press would put out a book focusing on Space building with LEGO Space: Building the Future by Peter Reid and Tim Goddard.
I am a big believer in the quantified self. I like using apps and devices to track my health, running, and other activities. When I came across the Withings Pulse, it piqued my curiosity because it was a fitness tracker that was able to work with other devices to track the user’s health.
I had been asked by Seven Degrees Communications to be part of their Social Connection Zone at the National Automotive Dealers Association (NADA) for the second year in a row. In this area of the convention’s expo floor, we answered all kinds of questions regarding social media, computers and any other forms of technology – as well as host social media seminars given by Jessica. It was while we were at the convention in New Orleans that a storm front began to move in, and we became stuck in New Orleans.
I recently came across Dosha Pops, all natural lollipops that are meant to promote healing based on the 5,000 year old Indian principles of Ayurveda. I was given a sample of the lollipops to try out and see what I thought of them.
Have you ever wondered what William Shakespeare would write if he lived in the modern era? What if he wrote one of the modern pop culture classics, like Star Wars: A New Hope? The folks at Quirk Books have pondered these questions and released William Shakespeare’s Star Wars to answer them.
Each year when I make a gift guide, I look at books that would make good gifts and find that if I put books on the list, I wouldn’t have room for anything else, so I just make a separate list of books that would make good holiday gifts. From tech to social media to graphic novels, there are always so many good books to read.
It’s that holiday time of year again, and sometimes you just don’t know what to get that geek in your life. Having skipped doing a gift guide in 2012, I’ve returned with a list to help find that perfectly geeky gift for the person you just don’t know what to get for them.
LEGO is the largest producer of tires in the world, holding the Guinness Book of World Records for “largest tyre manufacturer per annum” at 318 million tires made per year. With that many LEGO tires out there, it only makes sense that LEGO fans would create their own cars, and No Starch Press has given the directions to create custom vehicles in The LEGO Build-It Book Volume 1: Amazing Vehicles and Volume 2: More Amazing Vehicles.
After hurricane Sandy last year, we were all devastated that we could not run the NYC Marathon. 6 months of dedicated preparation wasted – and so were we when we heard the race was canceled. Time passed, training resumed, and team Unfinished Business prepared to run the streets of New York City to do what we had planned to do twelve months prior.
Twice before I have reviewed the Yurbuds Ironman headphones. After both times, I found them to be my favorite earbuds for running. I found both times they sounded excellent and never slipped due to the soft rubber earbud coverings, but now I was sent the Yurbuds Signature Series ITE 100 earbuds to check out.
