Jewelry That Harvests Energy from Blood Flow: Disgusting or Brilliant?

The jewelry is the brainchild of a designer named Naomi Kizhner, many agree it's freaky to say the least

Earlier this week, I introduced you to a few pieces of jewelry that, although absolutely flawless as far as looks go, are surely some of the freakiest to have ever been created.

Long story short, this jewelry, created by an artist named Naomi Kizhner, is designed in such ways that it can harvest energy from blood flow.

Apparently, some folks are quite convinced that the designer who put together these pieces of jewelry is nothing short of bonkers. Others think the concept is positively brilliant.

Not that I am one of those people who find it downright impossible ...

3 Reasons Why a Sony 12-Inch Xperia Tablet Might Be Successful

The company is expected to launch it in Q1 2015

People love big screened tablets. Or that’s what device makers want to believe. Microsoft has the Surface Pro 3 and Samsung has the Galaxy NotePRO and TabPRO bunch, while Apple is said to be prepping the iPad Pro.

All these tablets have a few things in common; they have large 12-inch screens. and are targeted at the professional crowd.

But is there room for more big-screen slates on the market? Sony seems to believe this is the case, as sources inside the Taiwanese supply chain claim the PlayStation maker is looking to launch a 12-inch tablet of its own in Q1 2015.

Learning to Live with Windows Phone: Choosing the Perfect Device

Why I decided to finally give up on my Lumia 1520

If you’ve read my journal before, you probably know that I come from a world full of BlackBerries which no longer make sense in a modern lifestyle, not necessarily because they’re bad devices, but mostly because the improvements their manufacturer makes are years behind what you can find right now on rivaling platforms.

A few weeks ago, I decided to switch from BlackBerry to Windows Phone, and since I wanted the best I could have, the Lumia 1520 was pretty much the obvious choice.

There’s no doubt that a Lumia 1520 is almost a perfect device and you’ll...

PlayStation Now, Streaming and Video Games by the Hour

Gamers have more options than ever to enjoy content

PlayStation Now is a new service from Sony which is designed to be launched on the PlayStation 4, the PS3, the Vita and even on smart television sets and which aims to allow players to play titles remotely, without owning or installing them on their devices.

The big problem with the concept at the moment is the pricing that the company has announced for it, which basically makes it a bad idea for players to pay for limited sessions with titles and makes the new solution interesting only for those who plan to engage with a title in the long term.

The PlayStation Now concept is...

Here's Why Google Can't Completely Fight Against Celebgate or Piracy

Removing a link doesn't make the content go away and blacklisting a domain doesn't mean another won't pop up

As celebrities threaten to sue Google for allowing links to the nude pictures that were leaked a few weeks back, the company has failed to do this. That’s because while one site may be taken down, another will pop up, as is the way of the Internet.

On Monday, the giant managed to successfully take down one website that was hosting the nude pictures of Jennifer Lawrence and other celebrities. Within hours, however, the photos were back online after the host changed the domain name, effectively dodging the Google-imposed blockade.

Google was threatened with a $100 million...

What Happened to Renee Zellweger’s Face, and Why Do We Care?

Star looks nothing like herself anymore, but some people really need to chill in their reactions online

The other day, Renee Zellweger made a rare public appearance, at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards, and since then, people haven’t been able to stop talking about her. As you can see in the photo above, she looks different.

Not just “slightly different” as in there’s something about her face you can’t exactly put your finger on, and not different in the sense she’s changed up her hair or her makeup style: Renee looks like an entirely different woman.

The explanation is simple: she no longer has the same shape of the eyes as before, but sh...

When Microsoft Says It Loves Linux, Does Linux Have to Say It Back?

These are some strange times we live in

Things have started to change on the Linux and Windows front and it looks like we might get to see some sort of partnership between the two platforms in the future. These are some strange times we live in.

A decade ago, Linux users had a ton of jokes about Windows and Bill Gates. The operating system developed by Microsoft took a much larger piece of the pie and it was arrogant about it. Besides the fact that it provided free distros and open source software solutions, the Linux ecosystem was also some kind of anti-establishment movement.

Linus Torvalds himself, the creator o...
