As you can see, its a little larger than a box of Tictacs – with the waterproof case you could easily fit it in...

DJI Phantom II Drone: How to Assemble and First Flight

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 7:13 — 329.4MB) While in Vegas last week I became a proud owner of a DJI Phantom II quadro-copter drone. An amazing and stable flying unit which can be moved around using a remote controller. Today, the weather was nice enough to really take this for a spin. About the DJI Phantom II I have been excited to use one of these ever since I saw it at NAB and talked with Willis from DJI. The Phantom II is a RC copter that can run for 25 minutes on a fully charged...

Ford announces Intelligent WiFi Vehicles

WiFi can save your life. Ford announced they have created intelligent vehicles that are talking to their surroundings. The idea is when one car is approaching too fast, your car can warn you and slow down. If a car breaks down, it sends a signal so the other cars are warned. “Ford believes intelligent vehicles that talk to each other through advanced Wi-Fi are the next frontier of collision avoidance innovations that could revolutionize the driving experience and hold the potential of helping reduce many crashes,” said Sue Cache, group vice president, Sustainability, Environment and Safety Engineering. The National Highway...

Firesheep: Security Exploit as Firefox Plugin

Now anyone can have L33t HaX0r skilz. A Firefox extension called “Firesheep” automates hacking your wi-fi connection if you are using public wi-fi. Here’s an excerpt from the Guardian’s report: Firesheep, though, has an easy-to-use interface and, perhaps most importantly, a cute name. Surely this can’t be a “cracking tool”? It wasn’t released by someone going by a name like ‘dEvILSp0RN42′. It doesn’t feature white text on a black background. It has well-thought-out and literate documentation. To use it, you simply install it into Firefox and click a few buttons. One minor additional step, installing WinPcap, is required for Windows...

Google Gobbles Wi-Fi Data

The street view cars not only shoot the street scene, they turn out the be scene stealers. The BBC reports that a German government audit of data collected by Google’s street view cars revealed that some of the software used in collecting street view data has been grabbing payload data from open wireless networks for three years. Google claims it was inadvertent: Google said the problem dated back to 2006 when “an engineer working on an experimental wi-fi project wrote a piece of code that sampled all categories of publicly broadcast wi-fi data”. That code was included in the software...

Morning Coffee: Then and Now – Bitstrips

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a Bitstrips. Today I was inspired. Me and my brother really enjoy going to breakfast every now and then. What was better – there was a restaurant that actually had Wi-Fi access. Therefore, we both would take our laptops and surf while eating. That was two weeks ago. Now we have smartphones that have wireless access. Of course, I have the iPhone 3GS and he has the Blackberry 8330. So why do we need the Notebooks? Heck – we can go to any place that serves breakfast because the Wi-Fi access selling...

Did the Geekazine 2008 Predictions Come True?

Wow. It was about a year ago I asked for people to send in thoughts as to what to expect in 2008. I also made some Technology predictions. But the real question was – How far off was I? This is actually part 1 of a 2-part story. This first part reviews the predictions I made last year and how far off I was. Part 2 will have this years predictions, including predictions from CEO’s CTO’s TechPodcasters and even a Psychic. So without any further ado, let’s pick apart my idiocy from last year: OLPC will have some growing pains....

Review of the Android G1

I got to play with a Developer Android G1 on Sunday (Thanks Abraham!). It was an interesting experience and something totally different from the iPhone. Here is what I saw: Layout – Slider screen The phone only slides the screen to reveal the keyboard. That leaves the button layout on the right side (in landscape mode) in the way. I was able to palm a button while working on it, which ultimately took me out of what I was doing.

When Streaming TV and Movies Go Mobile – Joost and iPhone

As a kid I had this really cool TV. it was a Bentley with a 5″ Black and White screen and ran on AC power or 9 “D” batteries. It went all the way up to Channel 83, so if I hooked it up to the cable today, I would get the Big 10 network, MTV, and Disney. Yeah, Black and White, but sometimes you have to go old school. Joost is no Bentley, but they might have finally pulled into a niche here. Last week they made an iPhone app for the Joost service. It’s not the best thing...
