Science is sexy – Mitochondria

Poste by a cool guy using Spock as an avatar over at G+ this video is pretty damned cool.

The animation highlights the creation of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) — mobile molecules which store chemical energy derived from the breakdown of carbon-based food. ATP molecules act as a kind of currency, imparting chemical energy to power all the functional components of cellular activity.

Not getting any younger.

14 - 1Life was easier when I was a kid. We had Were’s wally, a collection books where you had to find the strange creepy uncle looking fella with a camera and the first real cool video game was where in the world is Carmen Dandiego.

What we didn’t have was a 4 year old telling dad he likes the rainbow radio channel in GTA 5. That’s the rap channel for the record. I have failed as a parent.

Now I know my child likes rap I don’t know what to do. I was considering not letting him watch me play GTA 5 but that seemed a little radical.


Sailor Moon is still Funny

Watching all the sailor Moon Transition with my oldest daughter was great fun. Just never gets old.


Are you a HACKER?

Consider yourself a ‘hacker’. Someone who wants to make things better, to pull a thing apart and put it back together except new and more you. Hacking isn’t necessarily a technical thing though the movie is clearly focused on it’s impact regarding computers. Still, are you? Do you take pride in making things better, your dinner, your kids, your home, and your life. Doesn’t it scare you how people react to hackers, to you!


Some people play games for fun, others want a challenge.

Personally I hate fun and challange is for weaklings. Bring on Dark Souls 2 (Which for the record, is much easier than dark souls and apparently easier than demon souls.)


How to take a great movie and make it pfft…

Step 1. Michael Bay

Step 2. rinse repeat.


Hardware Review – Breffo Spiderpodium

Breffo SpiderpodiumSometimes products are hard to review because they simply do what they are designed to do and they cost very little. Welcome to the Breffo Spiderpodium which was kindly offered to me for review by MobileZapp. I mean it’s not like I don’t have some nice things to say about the little beastie, it is just that it is what it is and there isn’t much else to be said.


Movie Review – Indie Game – The Movie

by Gouanaco (aka Max Winzar)

Indie Game – The Movie does a very good job of presenting what the life of a few Indie Game developers is like. Not just showing their success but also there hardships and problems that they encounter. Proving that creating a polished Indie game isn’t as easy as bread and butter and can take up someone’s entire social life for many years.


Just for a moment lets be serious – about googly eyes.

It’s been about 4 hours of data collation and systems management. Now it’s time for a youtube break.


Hardware Review – Jabra Wave+

Spending up to 4 hours a session on a mobile phone a bluetooth headset isn’t so much an accessory as it is a requirement for day to day business. Requiring long battery life and good noise cancellation for on the go conversations the Jabra Wave turned out an exceptionally well priced option. Thanks to the boys over at MobileZap for getting one to me promptly (my old headset had fallen in a puddle) who provided the Jabra Wave+ for review.
