steve jobs Steve Jobs

We’re still trying to wrap our heads around the loss of our favorite CEO — he certainly left his dent in the universe — but out of all the eulogies we’ve seen so far, we’re still waiting to hear Steve’s story from the man himself. Written by hand-picked biographer Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs by Walter Issacsson ($17) tells the tale of Steve’s professional and personal life, informed by unprecedented access to Jobs, his family, friends, and co-workers, including details of his final days at Apple, and reflections from Jobs as he faced what he called “Life’s greatest invention.” Rest in peace, o turtlenecked one. You will be missed.

ParkPal NYC – the best way to find parking. Free.

November 16th, 2011 David No comments

201104 b parkpal3 ParkPal NYC   the best way to find parking. Free.

New York City drivers (and visitors to the Big Apple) flustered with the elaborate maze of parking regulations, shifting street-sweeping schedules, and frivolous no-parking hours can rejoice. A new app for iPhone and iPad untangles Gotham’s parking knot by illuminating the city’s rules and regulations with a tap of a finger. Building on previous parking apps, ParkPal ($FREE, Apple) delivers an easy-to-operate and accurate—the information comes from the New York City Department of Transportation database—interface with parking ordinances from all five boroughs. But they also have a website www.parkpalnyc.com

201104 b parkpal1 ParkPal NYC   the best way to find parking. Free.

Presented on a Google map, streets are painted red, green, or yellow to signify parking availability in real time. When users tap on a street, a complete day-by-day, hour-by-hour breakdown pops onto the screen. The app even details regulations that change within the same block and drops a pin on the map to mark the parking location.

201104 b logo ParkPal NYC   the best way to find parking. Free.

Drivers in other major American metropolises can look forward to forthcoming additions as ParkPal’s reach grows. Because as anyone who’s spent time driving endlessly around the convoluted streets of the West Village or strained their eyes squinting at signs in Midtown will tell you, a good spot is hard to find.

iPhone 5

November 3rd, 2011 David No comments

Finally, my wish came true! We have a new iPhone 5 concept straight after the iPhone 4S launch… Created by Antonio de Rosa, this model comes with a capacitive home button, aluminum unibody case, a 4.3 inch screen and a dual core Apple A6 processor.

iPhone5 concept ADR Studio 1 iPhone 5

It’s also got iOS 5.1 and iCloud, while its body looks more compact than ever, so it may have a thickness lower than 8.5mm (Galaxy S II thickness). The elongated capacitive Home button is something that people have been talking about for a while now, so it would be a pity not to capitalize on that innovation.

This week I’ve heard that Apple finally decided to go with Samsung as its next CPU maker, although TSMC seemed like the favourite for making the A6 for a while… Also, inside sources are saying that the same case size of the iPhone 4S will be kept, but the screen will be made bigger, so maybe we’re talking edge to edge display here. These are all usual rumors, that we’ll be hearing for a year now, till the iPhone 5 gets released…

iPhone 4S

October 14th, 2011 David No comments

iphone 4s iPhone 4S

It doesn’t look different on the outside, but it’s full of new stuff on the inside. Powered by the dual-core A5 processor, the Apple iPhone 4S ($200-$400) features iOS5 and its 200 new features including iCloud, as well as an 8-megapixel camera with all-new optics and 1080p HD video recording with image stabilization. And then there’s Siri, a scarily-accurate virtual assistant. Just ask Siri a question (by naturally speaking) and it (she?) responds with the answer — no matter how strange or complex your question was. Or just tell Siri to do something — it can make calls, send texts and emails, schedule reminders, make notes, search the web, find local businesses, get directions and much more. The iPhone 4S will ship in black or white in 16GB, 32GB or 64GB models. It’ll be available on October 14th on AT&T, Verizon, and now also Sprint. It might not be enough to cure our iPhone 5 sadness, but it might be enough for us to upgrade.

 iFrozen

Apple announced, yes Apple not CNN not NBC but rather Apple announced that Steve Jobs died last night or so they tell us, but let us be honest with our selves isn’t Steve Jobs smarter than that he made the iPhone! ok, so now that we all know he didn’t die where is he?

First off no one saw a body or will see it because Steve doesn’t plan to be buried, you don’t bury a live person. He Froze himself till they can find a cure for pancreatic cancer. Everyone knows that Steve Jobs was on the board of directors for Disney and everyone also knows that Walt Disney himself was chryogenatically frozen. Steve Jobs simply advanced the technology a little and added tons of patents. Steve Jobs has redeveloped the technology for something he calls “iFrozen”

iFrozen allows a person to be cryogenically frozen for up to 100 years based on the technology he received from Disney. As for the location of the lab preserving Steve Jobs evidence proves that he must be located 50-100ft under the future Cupertino Building but their are sources to suggest that he is located in New York City 25ft Uncer the Apple Store 5th Avenue. Below is an actual image taken from a source who would like to remain nameless. Rumors have it Steve will be back to introduce the iPhone 5 in the late Spring of 2012.

ithaa undersea restaurant hilton maldives xl Weird Restaurants
Eating with Sharks

Restaurant: Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, Rangali Island, Maldives

Culinary Concept: Fish-eye view. Ever dine on octopus and oysters surrounded by octopus and oysters? Well, you can do just that at the luxurious Ithaa restaurant beneath the Indian Ocean. Ithaa, meaning “pearl,” sits between three and six feet below sea level (depending on the tides) and weighs over 200 tons, so the chef won’t drift out to sea. On the menu: crustaceans and wild game.

 

modern toilet restaurant2 xl Weird Restaurants
New Meaning for Noodle Bowl

Restaurant: Modern Toilet, Taipei, Taiwan

Culinary Concept: Bathroom themed. If you’re into poop jokes (and can get over the gross-out factor), then you will find this toilet-themed restaurant plenty entertaining. Guests slurp up Asian noodles from commode-shaped bowls while sitting on their very own can. Keep the seat down.

snow village 2 xl Weird Restaurants
On the Rocks

Restaurant: Laino Snow Village Ice Restaurant, Ylläsjärvi, Finland

Culinary Concept: Ikea meets igloo. Just north of the Arctic Circle the winters are cold enough to sustain Snow Village’s Ice Restaurant for the season. Inside the 200-square-meter all-natural ice structure, diners sit on solid-ice chairs at solid-ice tables while savoring local fare like cream of Lappish potato soup with cold smoked salmon, tender reindeer, and game meatballs served with — what else? — vodka-lingonberry jelly.

 

dinner in the sky2 xl Weird Restaurants

dinner in the sky Weird Restaurants

Floating in Air

Restaurant: Dinner in the Sky, worldwide

Culinary Concept: Suspended supper. Dinner in the Sky brings new meaning to alfresco dining. If you have $40,000 to spare, you and 21 of your closest friends can lavishly dangle 150 feet above any city (or golf course) while conspicuously consuming beef and foie gras mille-feuille (savory layered puff pastry) and sipping Dom Pérignon.

 

yellow treehouse xl Weird Restaurants

treehouse restaurant Weird Restaurants

Foodie Forest

Restaurant: Yellow Treehouse Restaurant, Auckland, New Zealand

Culinary Concept: Treehouse treats. Using resources from inside the Yellow Pages, Pacific Environments architects constructed this pod-shaped eatery accessed by an 180-foot “treetop” walkway. There, 18 diners savored a multicourse menu that included pan-fried lamb loins with baby beetroot and mandarin salad with caramelized garlic. (Unfortunately, the restaurant was just a temporary project and has since closed.)

 

refuge fondus xl Weird Restaurants
Wine for Whiners

Restaurant: Le Refuge des Fondus, Paris, France

Culinary Concept: Bottle service. As rumor has it, this favorite tourist attraction in the Montmartre neighborhood first began offering patrons wine in baby bottles as a way to avoid the French tax on wine served in proper glasses. While sucking down the grape juice, winos can fill their bellies with toothsome cheese or beef fondues.

 

mars 2112 xl Weird Restaurants
Life on Mars

Restaurant: Mars 2112, Times Square, New York City

Culinary Concept: Earthling eats. NASA predicted by 2112 we’d be making commercial flights to Mars. Why wait for the airfare wars when you can pay a visit right in New York’s Times Square? Upon arrival, friendly Martians guide hungry earthlings into the hot, dry, red planet, where they can dine on the Martian Seafood Platter — exotic ocean shellfish, squid, shrimp, mussels with a spicy seafood sauce.

 

alcatraz er japan xl Weird Restaurants
Beverages Behind Bars

Restaurant: Alcatraz E.R., Tokyo, Japan

Culinary Concept: In(ti)mate atmosphere. If you were ever curious (and who isn’t?) about life in a medical prison, Tokyo’s Alcatraz E.R. will serve that sentence. Diners are handcuffed upon arrival and taken to their “cells,” where they can choose from a list of bizarre elixirs served in blood-transfusion apparatus by hospital orderlies.

 

opaque server xl Weird Restaurants
Dining in the Dark

Restaurant: Opaque, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, CA

Culinary Concept: Blind taste-test. At Opaque, patrons are led into the restaurant by visually impaired or blind employees to experience dining in the dark. The absence of light allows the senses to spring into action, enhancing the smell, taste, and texture of favorites like luscious mango panna cotta with coconut crème anglaise.

 

 

roller coaster restaurant xl Weird Restaurants
The Long and Winding Road
Restaurant: ‘s Baggers, Nuremberg, Germany
Culinary Concept: Roller-coaster service. At this futuristic eatery, the waitstaff is a thing of the past. Guests place their orders via a touch-screen computer at each table. When the food — which, according to the restaurant, is based primarily on local, organic ingredients and cooked with minimal fat — is ready, it zips to the table along a twisting track from the kitchen above.

ninja new york Weird Restaurants

Ancient Japanese Underworld

Restaurant: Ninja New York, New York, NY

Culinary Concept: Japanese warrior fare. Forget Ninja Turtles. This Japanese venue with a labyrinth-like interior was modeled after an ancient Ninja castle. After your waiter impresses you with his gravity-defying acrobatics, dine on the Katana, a $50 prime steak marinated in teriyaki sauce, and finish the ninja-filled night with the smoking piña colada-assorted diced fruits with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream sinking in a mysterious pineapple coconut pond. Don’t forget your sword.

 

airplane restaurant xl Weird Restaurants

a380 restaurant Weird Restaurants

Food Flight

Restaurant: The Airplane Restaurant, Colorado Springs, CO

Culinary Concept: Mile-high meals. Onboard this grounded 1953 Boeing KC-97 tanker, diners feast on atypical airline food like the Reuben von Crashed — tender corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing served on fresh marble rye bread.

 

cannibal restaurant Weird Restaurants

Image via Weird Asia News

Restaurant: Cannabalistic Sushi – Tokyo, Japan

Culinary Concept: ‘Nyotaimori’ in Japanese literally means ‘female body plate’, and this restaurant named after the tradition of eating sushi and sashimi off a nude woman’s body takes the concept to a whole new level. An edible body, with dough ‘skin’ and sauce ‘blood’ is wheeled into the room on a hospital gurney and placed upon a table. The hostess begins the meal by cutting into the body with a scalpel and then patrons dig in, operating on the body to reveal edible ‘organs’.

Google’s Photovine App Now Open for All

September 20th, 2011 David No comments

photovine712 Google’s Photovine App Now Open for All
Back in July we covered the release of Photovine for iPhone, an image sharing app developed by Google’s internal Slide team that, among other things, is also responsible for Disco, a group messaging app, and Pool Party. Powered by a slick design and attention to detail, the Photovine app that was released last month didn’t allow everyone to sign up and start sharing photos as the system was invite-only without an open sign-up. With an update pushed last night on the App Store, Photovine has revamped Facebook and Twitter integration from within the app and finally opened registrations without the need of a beta invite.

Unlike the popular photo sharing app and iPhone-based social network Instagram, Photovine doesn’t revolve around the simple concept of photos uploaded to a user stream and shared with followers. Rather, Photovine is based on “vines” — photos connected by a caption and contributed by you, your friends, and other people using Photovine. So, for example, say you’d like to share a photo about your newly acquired MacBook Air, you can start a vine called “My new MacBook” and your friends will be able to let the vine “grow” with new photos related to the caption, and the photo you originally posted. This is best explained by Photovine’s promo video, which we’ve embedded after the break.

Photos in a vine can obviously be liked and commented on, each user has its own dedicated page with a profile picture and followers/following/likes counts, and an Inbox tab in the bottom toolbar allows you to check on messages you’ve received from other users, or notifications such as new followers, comments, and likes. This is not too dissimilar from Instagram’s implementation of “activity”. Users can add new photos to an existing vine (or even “watch” a vine if they’re interested in it) or create a new one from scratch — Photovine comes with a beautiful custom camera interface that lets you snap your own photo, or pick one from the Camera roll. Indeed the whole app sports a gorgeous and clean design that makes it easy to jump through vines, user profiles, and comment on photos shared by others.

Photovine for iPhone is an interesting concept with a good-looking interface and additional social functionalities to forward photos to Twitter and Facebook, and find friends on those social networks as well. You can download Photovine for free on the App Store.
