The Australian Minister Who Wants You Not To Download 'The LEGO Movie' Has Already Seen It In Australia
The LEGO Movie is awesome! Or at least, we think so. Everyone in the world will see it before one of the world’s most notorious pirate-happy nations (Australia, for those playing at home), which may very well lead to The LEGO Movie being the most downloaded film of the year. Attorney-General George Brandis wants you to stop downloading stuff, and plans to re-introduce three-strike laws to do it. Think he can empathise with you, the people, that Australia gets film and TV releases last? Don’t: turns out he’s already seen it.
I spill a dribble of liquid nitrogen onto the bar as I try to pour it from a steel vat into a coffee thermos for Dave Arnold, in a scene that vaguely reminds me of this image of Jesus turning water into wine, except that the splash turns into smoke and tiny beads, which skitter across the bar like insects.
There’s something fundamentally broken in the world of PC laptops: Machines designed nearly four years ago still provide the basic model for how to build one correctly today. The Razer Blade is, in some ways, one of the best Windows laptops I’ve used in a long time. But I can’t decide if it’s merely ironic or outright depressing that a PC designed to reinvigorate PCs is ultimately most interesting because it steals something from Apple that most PC makers only wish they could grasp:
Coffee in the US has a bad rep, but if you walk into a good coffee shop that serves espresso, you will likely see a machine from one of these companies sitting on the bar: La Marzocco, Synesso or just maybe, Slayer. And they basically all come from one place: Seattle. I took a trip behind the scenes a little while ago and filmed a bunch of cool stuff.
My computer takes too long to boot up. Around a minute and 18 seconds, to be precise. Which is why I want a solid state drive. But I don’t want to pay ~$US400 for 256GB of storage. Enter Seagate’s Momentus X Hybrid drives, which promise near-SSD speeds, but with giant HDD storage — and not-so-giant prices.
I have something of a sleep problem. Or I guess, more accurately, a waking up problem. And my alarm clock died. So I bought this re-issue of Braun’s Dietrich Labs and Dieter Rams-designed BNC004 travel alarm clock. You should not.
I think the coffee that comes out of single-serving coffee pod machines is not very good. But, putting that aside, it’s obscenely expensive, as Oliver Strand points out in the New York Times:
Joel Johnson, after he visited a Foxconn factory for Wired: To be soaked in materialism, to directly and indirectly champion it, has also brought guilt.
Hey, so, it’s Change Your Password Day. Which means you should like, change your password. Why are we asking people to do this? I probably have twice as many stupid accounts on a multitude of sites, services and forums than I did two years ago. And there’s a new thing to sign up for everyday.
