Developer gets Windows 95 running on an Apple Watch

Developer gets Windows 95 running on an Apple Watch

By about 6 hours ago.

The Apple Watch may admittedly feel a big sluggish at times, but the device’s internals – 520 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage – are more impressive than what many old PCs were running back in the early to mid 90s. That being the case, developer Nick Lee recently took it upon himself to see if he could get Microsoft’s seminal Windows release – Windows 95 – up and running on the Apple Watch.

Interactive History Website

Awesome website features an interactive timeline covering 14 billion years of history

Awesome website features an interactive timeline covering 14 billion years of history

By about 7 hours ago.

There are a few ways you can go about catching up on significant moments in world and human history. You can attend lectures or perhaps read a few history books. Or, you can temporarily toss those old school learning methods aside and instead enjoy an impressively well put together interactive history timeline.

Sure, you may have seen interactive history timelines before, but we’ve yet to see one as exhaustive or engaging as the one put together by Histography.io. Their cleverly crafted and intuitive timeline spans 14 billion years of history, with the website boasting that every entry “is a historic event from Wikipedia.”

Elon Musk confirms Tesla Model 3 will have Ludicrous Mode

Elon Musk confirms Tesla Model 3 will have Ludicrous Mode

By about 8 hours ago.

During Tesla’s Model 3 unveiling this past March, Elon Musk confidently boasted, “At Tesla, we don’t make slow cars.” And true to form, Tesla over the past few years has demonstrated a near obsession with speed. First, Tesla introduced Insane Mode, a feature which allowed a dual-motor Model S P85D go from 0-60 in just 3.2 seconds. Pushing the envelope even further, Tesla last year introduced a Ludicrous Mode which let a top of the line Model S go from 0 to 60 in just 2.8 seconds.

Hell, even Tesla’s crossover SUV – the Model X – is no slouch in the speed department as it can go from 0 to 60 in just 3.2 seconds when in Ludicrous Mode. Just recently, we highlighted a video showcasing a Model X being able to keep up with a Ferrari F430 in a drag race.

Can a $70 kitchen gadget really save you hundreds each year?

Can a $70 kitchen gadget really save you hundreds each year?

By about 8 hours ago.

We don’t want to sound like an infomercial, but it’s the truth: one simple purchase really can save you hundreds of dollars. The value of the uncooked and uneaten food you throw away each week adds up quicker than you might imagine. In fact, we’ve seen some estimates that suggest 10% or even more of the money spent on groceries in some households ultimately goes to waste.

Instead of basically pulling cash out of your wallet and throwing it in the garbage, check out the Hamilton Beach 78213 NutriFresh Vacuum Sealer with 12 Bag Starter Set, which is under $70 with free express shipping on Amazon. More →

Earth Population

How many people can the Earth actually hold?

How many people can the Earth actually hold?

By on April 30, 2016 at 12:11 PM.

Earth may only be a tiny blip on the map relative to the entire universe, but for our purposes, it’s pretty darn big. Of course, the vast majority of earth – about 70% – is comprised of water. Taking that into account, the actual area of land on earth is estimated to be around 150 million square kilometers.

That being the case, Life Noggin recently set out to examine how many human beings the earth is capable of holding; not in a physical sense, but more in the sense of how many people can be sustained by the Earth’s finite resources. Today, the earth’s population checks in at about 7 billion, but that figure will only increase in the years ahead thanks to improvements in medicine and other health-positive factors. In fact, it’s estimated that the human population by the end of the century will be 10 billion strong.

See what it’s like to live in solitary confinement with this terrifying VR experience

Virtual reality is responsible for some of the most fascinating experiences in recent memory, from a tour of Chernobyl to some of the most immersive games in the history of the medium. These are all worthwhile applications of the technology, but it’s hard to imagine any of them could be as effective as The Guardian’s virtual experience of solitary confinement, which you can try for free right now.

Steve Jobs Last Words

These aren’t Steve Jobs’s last words, but they still managed to inspire a billionaire

These aren’t Steve Jobs’s last words, but they still managed to inspire a billionaire

By on April 29, 2016 at 9:14 PM.

Remember back when email chains were a thing? Instead of sharing anything and everything you find online using Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, people would pass along anecdotes via email. Several of these chain emails would reach your inbox each day, and you’d forward the best and most inspirational among them to everyone on your contact list. And the best part about them, of course, was that the stories they recounted were almost always completely and utterly fake.

We were reminded recently of these silly chain emails by an inaccurate story currently making the rounds online claiming to recount the inspiring last words of late Apple cofounder Steve Jobs. Interestingly, the passage was still moving enough to inspire a billionaire even though it doesn’t recount Jobs’s final words at all. More →

We really wish Apple would start paying more attention to the Mac

By on April 29, 2016 at 8:13 PM.

Apple last quarter experienced its first year-over-year drop in revenue since 2003. Not only that, but Apple saw a sales decline across all major product lines: iPhone sales were down 18%, iPad sales were down 19% and Mac sales were down 9%.

With most analysts preoccupied with iPhone and iPad sales, it appears that the Mac continues to be overlooked. Which is strange given that the Mac these days is actually more profitable than the iPad. During Apple’s most recent quarter, for example, the iPad generated $4.4 billion in revenue compared to the Mac which brought in $5.1 billion in revenue. More →
