Dippin’ Dots are so 2000…E Ink is the future. Esquire magazine is making a bold move to use E Ink on the cover of their October magazine.

Among some other humorous ones were Elmer Fudd, the Swedish Chef, Klingon, and Pig Latin. From a purely geeky perspective, I dug the Latin language option too. Being somewhat of a linguist… Continue reading Google Speaks H4x0r

As you travel life’s highways, stop and smell the roses…and get a piercing. That’s the advice Con’rs heard, anyway. DragonCon is, as of recent years, a five day event including labor day. The event takes place in Atlanta within the Marriott Marquis and Hyatt hotels (registration was actually taken care of in the Hilton this… Continue reading DragonCon Wrap-Up
