Yep, he finally did it. My son drop his mother's iPad 2. The screen didn't break but it did start displaying a crazy random pixel noise with mostly creen pixels splattered accross the iPad screen. Here's how I fixed it:
How to change from slide to slide or item to item automatically using Yootheme Widget kit on your Joomla website.
I got a bit stuck using Yootheme widget kit for a slideshow. I couldn't find how change from slide to slide (item to item) automatically. I couldn’t see it in the widget kit component at first, so I thought I might have to specify it as a shortcode. Nope wrong again. It turns out it was much easier than that.
I thought I just posted about mind blowing tech of the day and then these 3D ants showed up. I laughed, I cried, I peed my pants. These little blighters have great potential but also hint at the dark side of robotics, imagine a pletora of bionic ants like these in the wrong hands... sounds not too far of the robots out of Hero 6.
Don't be fooled though, I'm impressed. The software for creating robot ants that can work together and also take care of themesleves autonomously is pretty cool.
Check it out and decide for yourself: Creepy or Cool?
Mind blowing 3D tech of the day goes to: Carbon 3D Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP).
If you are involved in manufaturing this video might just blow your mind. I had never heard of Carobn 3D until I came accross a press realease today about thier new 3D printing technique which grows the 3D objects in a pool of resin reminiscent of how the T1000 grew back up out of droplets int the movie Terminator 2.
The Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP) uses light and oxygen to “continuously grow objects from a pool of resin instead of printing them layer-by-layer.”
Well,... take a look for yourself. Keep in mind this is 7 times normal speed, but it still does not fail to impress:
I wanted to know which would be the fastest free joomla template. I know that Joomla is a great way for people to get into web development for free (kudos Joomla opens source devs!) and for many people that’s important. When I started with Joomla I couldn’t afford anything.
If you have a brother HL-2240, HL-2230, HL-2270DW, or HL-2280DW desktop printer connected to your PC or Mac you will no doubt from time to time get a toner error light or drum error or even just the error light light up.
Sometime this just seams to be the system getting it wrong and sometime it throws up a tuner error light or drum error even though there is still toner left or the drum is still in good enough condition to continue printing.
Here's how to get rid of ANY error light on your brother HL-2240, HL-2230, HL-2270DW, or HL-2280DW desktop printer by performing a factory reset.
I once bought a Hercules HD webcam. It was not HD. I’ll never buy Hercules again.
Honesty is important. It’s why I like apple products, they deliver not only on the promise of features, but also usability and quality. I simply never have buyers remorse. Take my iPad 2 for example. I’m still using it heavily 5 years after I bought it.
With that in mind, take a look at what landed in my inbox courtesy of Spanish PC component supplier App Informatica. Shame on you APP, 1200x800px is not “Full HD”. Although It's not AS bad (because they do at least display the actually pixel resolution), not everybody understands these specs and it makes me a little mad that even one person might be duped this way. It's also not helping Android if someone buys this product and doesn’t think their HD screen is very good… oh well…
Apple is the first company to make $10,000+ dollar version of its smart watch (that I know of) called the Apple Watch "edition". This has generated quite a buzz in the media and also with the apple haters jumping into full swing with memes like “a $10,000 watch? Apple just went full retard, never go full retard.”.
Now, I not big on opinionated posts (my blog is more to help others find solutions to tech problems)… but I have an opinion on this that people don’t seam to be talking about: Apple is making a $10,000 smart watch because they seam to be the only ones smart enough to know; they HAVE TO.
Part of my job is making coffee friendly memes for fun to post on social media. We strive to entertain and as a marketer I always recommend that providing the best possible quality and service is the best marketing you can do, so I like to create things which might brighten someones day or that people find amusing. Recently I saw a photo of an older guy drinking coffee and was inspired to create this:
Ok so this happened. I decided to buy a new car to improve the comfort of transporting my growing family. I want an electric car as this is the ONLY area I want to contribute to financially, but, sadly, they are out of my price range at the moment. And when I tried to buy a car the conventional way... it was twarted by... the dealers.
