King Tut Takes 2010 Rube Goldberg Competition

The Rube Goldberg Competition challenges teams of college (and high school) students to over-engineer a contraption that will perform a simple task – think, Mousetrap.

AquaNotes Waterproof Notepad Combines Hygiene And Ideas

It’s no secret that the best ideas hit you while you’re either dreaming or in the shower. Best of luck trying to write something down while you’re asleep unless you sleepwalk habitually, in which case your scribbling probably looks like “Osmosis is after me. Bread! Taking Shasta by noon.”

Apple Delays Some iPad Accessories Until May

It’s come to the attention of the nerd collective that two of Apple’s iPad accessories will be delayed until May. That’s right, the iPad keyboard and 10W USB power adapter are being pushed back until sometime in May.

Apple TV Is Still a “Hobby” and the iPad Will Be Sold In Best Buy

During his spiel at the Goldman Sachs technology conference Tim Cook addressed the giant pink elephant that’s been sitting in the corner for the last three years: Apple TV. According to Apple’s COO, the set-top box is still a “hobby” and they’re going with their “gut” by keeping it around. Apple isn’t interested in …

Wired Demos Tablet App

Chris Anderson and the folks from Adobe shared a tiny morsel of what Wired might look like on a tablet last week at TED. What they showed was “live code” with actual copy from Wired and not a fancy mockup video like this one. What’s most interesting is that the design team that puts together the print edition of Wired in Adobe …
