Narrative Clip 2 camera hits preorder: Here’s what it can do

Narrative has thrown its 2nd-gen wearable camera up for pre-order, offering life-logging fans the updated Clip 2 with better quality and connectivity. Announced back at CES 2015 in January, the Clip 2 outwardly resembles its Kickstarter-success predecessor - a small square that latches onto a lapel and snaps a picture every thirty seconds to photo-document your day - but bumps the camera up to 8-megapixels with improved low-light performance, along with adding WiFi for wirelessly transferring photos to the cloud for content-processing.

Teen solves Rubik’s Cube in 5.25 seconds

One of the icons of the 80s was the infuriating puzzle cube called the Rubik's Cube. Anyone around during that era has played with one and likely received enough of them as Christmas gifts to build a house out of the blocks. Back in the day, it was a big deal if you could even solve the cube in days or weeks.

Exploding Kittens the new Kickstarter backer champ

While the Exploding Kittens card game didn't raise the highest amount of money in Kickstarter history - they were 3rd - they did gather the most backers. At around $35 a pop, users were invited to take part in this crowd-funding campaign which offered a card game similar to War. This new-age War game has users flipping over cards with cartoons on them illustrated by the same fellow who illustrates The Oatmeal. That proved well and above enough for quite a few backers over the past month, that's for certain.

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

Razer Tactical Bag Review: the gear backpack of your dreams

My review of the Razer Tactical Bag began in January of 2015, about a month and a half ago. The bag was delivered to me right in time for CES 2015 - easily the most action-packed week for me out of the whole year - for tech, that is to say. During the week I carry a lot of weight. In past years, I've brought bags that weren't up to the task. I've had bags whose handles rip partway through the week. I've had bags that didn't end up having nearly enough space or pockets for organization of oddities. The Razer Tactical Bag was up to the task.

A “digital Dark Age” is coming, warns father of the internet

When the "father of the internet" says you should worry about digital ephemerality, it's probably time to pay attention. Vint Cerf, currently a VP at Google but better known as one of the men behind the creation of the internet, made the ominous prediction that we face a "digital Dark Age" at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, pointing out the rapid pace of development meant that there was a strong possibility that digital files - from family photos, though vital documents, and more - could be left behind unreadable.
