George Hotz, aka geohot, was one of the many people who worked on the jailbreak for the Apple iPhone, which allows iPhone owners to load apps and software on the phone not approved for the iTunes App Store. He’s now hacked the Playstation 3 and Sony is not pleased. Sony has posted a response.
When Apple unveiled the iPod it was a huge hit. Challengers to it never came close. When Apple brought out the iPhone, it was a huge success and made current phones on the market look like toys. Then the iPad came to be and many companies are playing catchup again. Can Google's Honeycomb OS give them a shot at beating the iPad?
For some time now, the engineers who run the internet have been saying that we are running out of IP addresses. IP addresses are how computers are identified on the internet and we are able to go to webpages. This past week, the last of the addresses ran out. What are we going to do now?
And so the day has come. The BIG game, which contrary to what you may read on the internet, is NOT named after me. But for many it's still going to be a great night. But for some like me, who are not big football fans it's a night for another kind of sport. E-Sport!
I'm by no means a football guru.

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to just disappear? Drop off the face of the Earth? Vanish without a trace? We've seen it in thriller and spy movies, even heard about some folks trying to get away with it in the news. Well the Discovery Channel wants to try and do it now.
I saw that Brian posted an article about an app on the iTunes store that lets you dial with your nose. Yeah, while I commend the app's creator for being smart and trying to solve a problem, he has opened up others. Like snot and boogers. Here's an alternative.
I'm sure many of us have had great years despite the economy and other factors. And some like me, have had a rough 2010. But the start of a new year gives all of us, no matter who we are, a new start to make things better not only for ourselves and our families, but others we know only in passing and even total strangers.
So King Dawes came to me and asked, "BIG Rich, you up for hosting your world famous New Years Eve party on the air again?" And I said "Your Majesty, anything for you!" Well, I'm paraphrasing of course, it was more like "Rich, New Years, DO IT!" But you get the idea.
The National Weather Service has been been keeping a watch on our Sun as it starts to move into a phase of increased activity called Solar Max. The sun will throw off more stellar matter and radiation which is what causes the Northern Lights when it hits the magnetic field that surrounds the Earth.
I'm a geek and that means I love tech and gadgets! Here's a well thought out, designed and crafted tool for the beer drinker. A beer fridge with a launcher to get you, your cold beer quick! It's called, The Beer Robot.
