Feds Finally Closing the Net on America?s Most Wanted Barbie (since Klaus)

Remember a few months back when I warned John Biggs that spycam Barbie was child abuse waiting to happen? Well guess what, America? I freaking CALLED IT. The FBI - avid TechCrunch TV readers to a man -�just made the plastic doll�the subject of an official FBI memo, with agents warned that she might be implicated in sex crimes. Like a plastic Julian Assange. Says the Huffington Post...
'Beware of Barbie. That seems to be the message from the FBI after an internal memo reportedly leaked from the agency's Sacramento field office this week. The memo (PDF) warns that Barbie Video Girl, a doll with a built-in video camera capable of recording for about 30 minutes, is a "possible child pornography production method... The FBI memo, dated November 30, seems to be a few months behind TechCrunch, where reviewer Paul Carr called the product "child abuse waiting to happen" during a review at the time of the product's release. He described it as "creepy," then read from a press release from the PR firm that sent Tech Crunch the toy: "Unsuspecting subjects won't know that Barbie is watching their every move."

Mercedes-Benz BIOME concept car grows in a nursery, on sale now in Zion

Okay, so there's no actual way to phone up Sad Keanu Reeves and confirm that the Mercedes-Benz BIOME is indeed on sale in the "real world," but it should be. Revealed in The Matrix's own LA Auto Show, this here vehicle has a theoretical weight of just 875.5 pounds, but it's likely far too wide to cruise on this planet's existing roadway system. The vehicle was imagined by designers from the Mercedes-Benz Advanced Design Studios in Carlsbad, California, and it's said to be "fully integrated into the ecosystem, from the moment of its creation right through to the end of its service life." How so? It's grown "in a completely organic environment from seeds sown in a nursery," and just being totally frank here, we've no idea what that means. But hey, if M-B can figure out how to grow cars in Morpheus' backyard, who are we to question the reality of it?

World?s Widest Digital Pinhole Adapter for Micro 4/3?s Cameras

I fancy myself a pretty decent photographer. At least as far as macro photography for the product shots in my reviews are concerned. I’m not sure that I’m all that great with general photography though. I have a goal to work on that in this coming year and have even considered purchasing a Micro 4/3′s [...]
