Say goodbye to AOL Instant Messenger
October 6th, 2017 under Cool Technology. [ Comments: none ]

AOL might be a thing of past, but AOL Instant Messenger survived all the mergers and changes throughout the last 20 years. But come December 15th, it will make like those AOL CDs we used to get in the mail and go away. The sad news was announced today, upsetting those of us, like me, who still use it.

I do not know about you, but I very sad to see AIM retire. It helped me keep in touch with my NYC and DC friends during 9/11. Heck, it also let me talk to friends all over the country for years. I am so heartbroken over this news, that each time I send an instant message, I am going to shed a tear. 🙁


The Tamagotchi is back!
April 11th, 2017 under Cool Technology. [ Comments: none ]

Remember when you were younger and you had a Tamagotchi? You loved feeding that stupid pet on a keychain, but then it died. Then the battery died. And then it was no more.

Now over 20 years later, you sometimes wish you could get your fingers on one? Well, the good news is that Bandai brought them back. The bad news is they are only available in Japan at the current time. That is unless you want to buy it from Amazon Japan’s site for ¥2,000 yen or $18.22 without the shipping expenses.

Still, it is closer to being a reality again and who doesn’t want their virtual pet back. I still miss mine. Ralff was a good friend, until I brought him to an outdoor concert and it rained. Ralff didn’t like baths, and that was the end of him. How did yours go to the Rainbow Bridge?

Many people have gotten very close to their cellphones, some might even say too close. Soon they can get even closer because the Kissinger app simulates a kiss from your loved one.
For those of you whose lovers are long distance or travel a lot, then you will enjoy this device that will make it feel as though their lips are next to yours. Plus, in time it will even smell like your soulmate according to WTOP. What more could you ask for? Besides, well, that person being next to you.
Actually, this is great for teens who want to learn how to kiss. They no longer need their pillows, hands and stuffed animals to practice on. What a great world they live in.


Watch Robots react to the Morgan trailer
August 25th, 2016 under Cool Technology. [ Comments: none ]

Robots are getting so advanced these days that they can now show emotion. 20th Century Fox brought two of the world’s most advanced robots for a focus group to see how they would react to the Morgan trailer. The one from magicLab’s EDI (Electronic Deceptive Intelligence) was so realistic, I felt like he was me watching it. Meanwhile, the University of Pisa’s FACE (Facial Automation for Conveying Emotions) was so creepy, I was more scared of her than I was the trailer for the film that comes out on September 2nd.
Either way, it was really intriguing to watch. I want to see more Robots watching trailers like The Jetsons, War Games, Electric Dreams and Her. Maybe Fine Bros can record them watching a whole bunch of different things to get their reaction. How tubular would that be?


Pizza Hut came out with the most bitchinest pizza box
August 18th, 2016 under Cool Technology, Fast Food. [ Comments: none ]

Pizza companies around the world have been creating crazy and wacky pizza pies that are also extreme delicious. Now, Pizza Hut has taken it to a whole new level with their pizza box. It is not edible like the one in NYC, theirs is one that actually works like a DJ Turntable. That’s right, it is cardboard box with Bluetooth that connects to your computer, phone or MP3 player. It then let’s you pick two songs to play on the turntables that come with adjustable buttons on it like what a professional DJ would use.
How much does it goes for? Where can I get it? Because I don’t know about you, but I want it now. Here’s the problem, it is only available in The UK and it is not for sale. What? All we know, is we have to follow the PizzaHutUK Twitter page to find out how we can win one the 5 they are giving away.
Personally, I don’t know why they aren’t marketing it because there is totally an audience who would pay to own one of those Rockin’ cardboard pizza boxes.
Now, you have to wonder what they will come up with next? Sometimes it is better to be surprised because it is getting crazier and crazier with each reveal.
