Android iPhone clone shown as “iOS 9”, iFans love it

Here is yet another episode in the almost ridiculous tug of war between iOS and Android. With iOS 9 just a month or so away, some thought it might be high time for some very late April Fools gag. So what does happen when you slap Android on a smartphone that looks incredibly like and iPhone 6 or 6s and sell it off as the next iOS 9? Well, for Apple's fans, it doesn't seem to matter if the company suddenly stopped developing iOS and switch to Android. They'll love it just the same.

Forget Apple Watch! This Netflix Watch is to die for

Forget Apple Watch! This Netflix Watch is to die for

Smartwatches have arrived in all shapes and sizes and have promised to help us accomplish a lot of things without having to fish out our smartphones from our bags or pockets, which could cost you at least 5 seconds of your life every time. With the arrival of the Apple Watch, that market is about to heat up even more. But for all the power and convenience these wearables have to offer, they fail at one critical use case: they won't let us watch Netflix comfortably. Luckily for us, Netflix is here with a smartwatch of its own.

“Windows 93”: a psychedelic nightmare that could have been

“Windows 93”: a psychedelic nightmare that could have been

The decision to call the next Windows version Windows 10 and not Windows 9 has prompted a look back at the history of Windows version naming, particularly those that were released back in the 90s. It might have also prompted some musing of what could have been. For example, what if Bill Gates and Steve Ballmer, after one too many rounds at the bar, decided to make an interim release before Windows 95? What would have been the design and what would have been the experience? Wonder no more, because Windows 93 has finally been released.

Tomatan robot rides on your shoulders, feeds you tomatoes

Only in Japan will you see a robot designed to feed you tomatoes while you are running. Because you can never have enough tomatoes during a marathon. And you can never have enough hands to eat those tomatoes with. Named Tomatan, this robot will sit on the shoulders of one of the employees of Japanese tomato company Kagome, who commissioned the development of the robot, during the upcoming Tokyo Marathon. Good thing the marathon is more about surviving than winning, as the employee probably won't win any races with the contraption on his head.

Blending Buckyballs make for a nice but dangerous light show

Blending Buckyballs make for a nice but dangerous light show

Small, spherical Neodynium magnets, more popular by their commercial name "Buckyballs", have been declared illegal last year by the Consumer Product Safety Commission because of the danger they pose to children. To commemorate the commercial death, at least officially, of the hot geek product, as well as to dispose of it, Blendtec saw it fit to make the balls rest in pieces by putting it inside one of their blenders. Will it blend? Yes it does, somewhat. But it produces more than rubbish too.
