time_lords_almanac (3527081) writes "BlackBerry is trying to put the kibosh on the Typo, a physical keyboard attachment for iPhone.

The HUVr Tech hoverboard: a hoax, but why?

time_lords_almanac time_lords_almanac writes  |  about a month and a half ago

time_lords_almanac (3527081) writes "A video has recently gone viral, purportedly showing a real life hoverboard. The video itself is quite impressive, featuring well done effects, and cameos from Christopher Lloyd and Tony Hawk (a shorter video features Billy Zane from Back To The Future as well). There's even an accompanying website compete with an endorsement from entrepreneur Mark Cuban.

Now, before you let your brain leave you and actually get excited about this, various sites have already sprung up to debunk this. But the question remains: why?

Band seeks compensation after music used in Guantanamo Bay interrogations

time_lords_almanac (3527081) writes "A Canadian band has sent an invoice to the U.S. Department of Defense after learning that its music was used without permission in "interrogations" of detainees at Guantanamo Bay. The members of Skinny Puppy, who specialize in electronic music, were originally going to make the invoice the cover of their next album until they discovered they could bring legal action against the department. They were also none to happy to learn the purpose their music was being employed for, let alone illegally. The amount of compensation requested? $666,000, of course."
