Awesomeness Gadgets Inspirational Designs Mission Samsung Mobile

Hello, Phabulous Phablet!

It’s Mission Samsung time again, folks, and this time around, the wonderful folk at Samsung sent me a Galaxy Note 4 to integrate into my life for a week. For those of you who don’t know, the Galaxy Note 4 is somewhere in between “phone” and “tablet”, and thus it was dubbed the “phablet”. Which sounds a little like what would come from a union of Pharrel Williams and Kate Winslet. One of the best features of the Galaxy Note 4 is that is includes a stylus called the S-Pen, which, among other things, allows for a greater degree of precision and control when writing on the screen.

A Humorous Look at Technology

We live in an age of wonder where people are able to communicate with each other instantly. Using cell phones, computers, and gaming consoles, to name but a few. We have become so reliant upon these marvels, that to envision living life without them is down-right scary. It has integrated into our very fabric of existence, and it is funny to see how we have evolved with it.

I’m sure all of you, me included, have had a discussion along these very same lines at some point in the recent past. How would life have turned out differently without cell phones? I personally cannot imagine a life without mine. But it’s not just cell phones that shape the way we live; we depend on televisions, refrigerators, microwaves and coffeemakers (who can function without coffee these days?).

Let’s take a look at the comical aspect of how we as humans have evolved along with technology and where inevitably it might lead. Read more after the jump.

Kubrick x Scorsese

Editing Leandro Copperfield genius decided to pay homage to two of his favourite directors in the only way he knew best. He re-watched various films by messieurs Kubrick and Scorsese, and then stitched together over 500 scenes to create a hypnotically violent mashup. 25 days, 34 films, 1 tribute. Check out Kubrick x Scorsese below.

You might like his earlier effort too, Tarantino vs Coen Brothers.

Amazing Movie Posters by Tyler Stout

They don’t make them like they used to. Until now – well, since 2006, but knowing my penchant for catching things late, I only became aware of this most awesome artist today.

The fantastic works of Tyler Stout, an illustrator from Washington D.C., take you back to a time when film posters were considered valuable collectibles, worth framing and putting up on your wall. See some of his rad posters after the jump.


Google Nexus One

Ok I for one love my iPhone. You can keep your Blackberries, Palm Pre’s and Motorola Droids,  iPhone is the winner. And then this happens. The Nexus One from Google of all people.

Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, it’s reported to be the iPhone killer. With a faster processor, better camera, better OS, better everything.  Except for two things. The price and it will not be available in South Africa. This is the worst news in my opinion and makes no sense. The iPhone made it to our shores, why not this? I guess it will be a matter of time till techies jailbreak this as well and make it available for all us third worlders.

Here’s some info on how it stacks up (click image to enlarge).
