Nerds love details. So much so that nerds can kiss them, live with them, and marry them. Yes, without divorcing.
Real people are slightly different. They sometimes find details overwhelming, confusing, or just plain dull.
Still, when it comes to advertising their wares, tech companies can't help wanting real people to know about the very fine motion sensor or the gesture-controlled gyroscope thingy.
Chrysler has decided to hold hands with Ron Burgundy, in an attempt to prove that details will never trump entertainment.
Physicists can sometimes feel neglected.
Not always the party types, their lack of screen presence makes them seem weird, peculiar, and other-worldly.
Famous actor and renowned non-Scientologist Will Smith intends to narrow that gap. He knows that physics is the core of human life.
How can I make such a provocative statement?
Well, because I just read an interview he and his son Jaden gave to New York magazine, one intended, I think, to promote their new movie "After Earth."
In it, Smith boldly goes where few actors have gone before in declaring: "At heart, I am … Read more
Technology doesn't just complicate our lives, it also does a number on our deaths.
Imagine the challenge of accounting for all of your digital assets once you've shuffled off to Buffalo. Even if you consider your e-mail, text messages, and social-media posts disposable, you've probably stored photos, videos, and very personal documents on one or more Web services.

AUSTIN, Texas--Daniel Ek was waving his arms in the air, as if molding invisible clay. He swiped his right hand karate-chop style, made a big loop, and then grabbed an imaginary dial with his left and twisted his fist.
Ek, you see, was talking about the future. In this not-so-far-off future, maybe a decade from now, we're all connected, everywhere, all the time -- perhaps via Google Glass, perhaps via sensors built into our clothes, or through other wearable computing devices. Our touch-screen life will require no touching whatsoever, as we control what we're listening to or seeing … Read more
Leaked from today's 404 episode:
- Just say no: Polaroid returns with an instant camera shaped like...the Instagram icon.

U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh handed down some of her first post-trial rulings from the much publicized Apple v. Samsung patent case this evening.
In a 32-page order filed today, the judge said she predominantly agreed with the jury's decision that Samsung infringed on seven of Apple's design and utility patents. However, she disagreed with one finding -- that Samsung "willfully" infringed on Apple's patents.
What this means is that Apple will now be unable to triple its damage awards. If Koh had agreed with the jury on this decision, Apple could have … Read more
When it comes to dressing well at public appearances, music star Will.i.am has a pretty good track record. Just don't let him get anywhere near your iPhone.
