Love your bike? then i suppose you might consider this sick lock, what it does it acts as a regular bike lock and lock’s your nike to a light pole. BUT then i frigging climbs with the bike to the top, and i guess nobody would actully climb up a street light with a lock pick… but still, isn’t this a bit too much?
BreakfastNY has created the Office Music Democratizer which gives everyone a vote regarding what they do or don’t like when it comes to music. Their solution is a light up set of buttons on the wall that allows anyone in the office to either like or dislike the song currently being played by LastFM or Pandora. Hitting the like button increases the song’s rating, while hitting the dislike button immediately causes it to jump to the next track.
Besides being energy efficient and all that, the use of LEDs also means that you don’t necessarily have to just settle with boring white lighting any more. ThinkGeek’s latest creation, affectionately known as Huey (any relation to Pantone’s color calibration system?) takes advantage of the fact that multiple LEDs of different colors can be combined to create even more colors.
Using a couple of white LEDs and an optical sensor hidden underneath him, Huey is not only able to determine the color he’s currently sitting on, but he’ll do his best to adjust his internal lighting to match that color as closely as possible. When left alone he’ll cycle through the various colors in his spectrum, but at any time you can ‘lock’ him in to a specific color by giving his soft vinyl body a gentle squeeze. $29.99 including an AC adapter, though probably not the 3xAAA batteries if you want to use him cordless.
Apple is today rolling out iOS 4.2 to iPads and qualifying iPhones (3G, 3GS and 4) and iPod touches (second, third and fourth generation) across the globe, delivering the long-awaited multitasking and app folder enhancements to a tablet that was already supposed to be magical and revolutionary. Also there’s airplay, gamecenter and well probably a few bugs.
Also there’s the news that a part of mobile me is now free. We’d been sort of hoping Apple would just make MobileMe a completely free service, but it dosent look that way.. Find My iPhone / iPad is now a free service for iPhone 4, the iPad, and the fourth-gen iPod touch running iOS 4.2.1, and 4.2. As with the paid feature, you’ll be able to locate your device on a map, lock it, display a message, play a sound, or remotely wipe your data from any browser or the updated iOS app. Exciting!
