IMAX original films are eye-popping by definition, but have you ever wondered how they get that way? The new film Stalingrad tells the story of the epic Russian battle in the city of the same name, and the effects work that went into it will blow your freaking mind.
We’ve often had cause to criticise Apple for its contemptuous attitude to Australian consumer law, and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has had several run-ins with the tech giant.

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.
