Coolest Family Portraits Ever: 3D-Printed Figurines

Coolest Family Portraits Ever: 3D-Printed Figurines

Adriana Lee

Family portraits are rarely ever fun. In my family, they were usually marked by stress, irritations and ultimately petty squabbling. “He poked me first!” “Just stop hitting each other and smile!” “Mom, my stomach hurts.” “Are we done yet?” “Honey, can I wear my lodge hat?” “Everybody act happy, or I’ll give you a reason to be unhappy!” And after all that, the end result is a lame family...

Oprah’s Favorite Things has reached legendary status. After years of giving away freebies big and small on her departed talk show, the list went on hiatus last year, but returned in full force last Sunday. Her OWN network brought it back by broadcasting a dedicated two-hour special, cementing this event as its own hotly anticipated entity. Such is the power of giving away droolworthy...

It’s not easy being a credit card. These bits of plastic are so passé, after all. Industry watchers once thought RFID (radio frequency identification) chips would usher them into obsolescence, but these systems aren’t cheap and all sorts of security concerns got stirred up after multiple news crews and geeks/scientists/hackers figured out that, using specialized gear, they could read...

Pixar Remembers Steve Jobs, Dedicates Main Building To Him

Adriana Lee

Okay, so maybe Steve Jobs was wrong about the iPad’s size — apparently the Mini is becoming quite the go-to device for Apple fans — but that doesn’t mean he isn’t missed. That other Jobs operation, the little animation studio known as Pixar, has quite the fitting memorial for the long-departed visionary who poured his heart (and millions of his own money) to keep the company alive in...

Many East Coast residents are still reeling from Hurricane Sandy and its aftermath. The devastation in the region was extreme — it took lives, destroyed property, rendered people homeless and plunged millions into darkness this week.

The remains of Google’s event that never was reveals a desolate, lonely picture. A few days before the search giant’s execs were set to unveil what we now know to be the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and Android 4.2, Hurricane Sandy’s presence down the Eastern Seaboard lead to the show being canceled entirely. There’s a half erected stage, hands-on areas with rumpled cloths, and equipment discarded...

Hurricane Sandy: What is This Frankenstorm? And Why You Should be Prepared

Brandon Russell

There’s a vicious hurricane, Sandy, hurtling straight toward USA’s East coast. The current forecast is grim — it could be the worst storm in more than 100 years — and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is even referring to the event as Frankenstorm: gale-force winds, snow, torrential rain, flooding and extreme tides in one unforgiving force of nature. Please,...
