Somehow I missed the memo about Apple killing Front Row in 10.7, something I didn't use often, but still liked. Fortuatly there's a convient fix for it, and the various patches I talked about in 2010 still work, assuming you can find the downloads.

Tagged : entertainment House interviews medicine science tv wired

For the last few seasons of House, I've developed a habit of checking out medical reviews of it at Polite Dissent (who also looks at comics and some other scifi for bad medicine). However, this WIRED interview with one of the medicine advisors is facinating - stores on simple errors he's fixed to one where he couldn't find a solution to a far fetched idea, left it on the fiction side, but later found out there was a more reality than he originally believed.

A Timelapse project, where a DSLR camera took a photo, every 10 minutes, for 5 weeks, in the middle of nowhere. The fact that it's for Burning Man is worth it from the start, but I've been thinking about doing a similar project for a while now, and this is very similar to what I've been considering. While I wasn't aiming for the 10 minute increments, its cool to know my pipe dream is actually feasible.[via PetaPixel]

Tagged : apple article ifixit pentalobe repairs security Steve Jobs tools

Doesn't matter if it’s high end laptop or a simple coffee maker, if you can’t work on it without some special tool there’s some thing wrong. I’m annoyed whenever is see slotted anti-tamping screws, security hex screws, and tri-wing bits, even if I know I’ll never really need to work on it. If anything it tempts me to tamper with it. While I’m used to Steve Jobs history of wanting to lock the users out in every way possible, these pentalobe things are ridiculous.

This looks like a truely amazing tool setup, a quiet, high precision, manually powered saw setup that I could see as an amazing item for my little workshop. Just look at the video demo to see what this can do. I was sold right up until I saw the price for the thing, at which point my jaw literally dropped -much more and I would have dislocated my own jaw. I'd love this thing, but I don't do enough wood work to justify that sort of cost. [via MAKE Blog]
