This week’s episode of The PractitioNERD discusses a Dutch house built along a moat (The Water Villa), self-flying planes that dodge obstacles (MIT’s Autonomous Plane), my episode with repairing my old PS3 and backing up my data (What the Inside of a PS3 Looks Like), and Hulk Hogan stars in NOOO HOLLLLDS BARRRRRRED!! (“No Holds Barred”: The Movie and the Match).
…also, THE QUESTION OF THE WEEK!! Read the rest of this entry
Here are some pictures I took last summer of what the inside of my 2007 “Cadillac” 60GB (now 500GB) launch model of my now old & non-working PS3 looks like (it was way out of warranty anyway). From left to right is the top case with media drives and power source, the cooling fan and heat-sink, and the main motherboard. Check out the whole wild, wild (well, maybe not THAT wild) and crazy story and a slideshow after the break.
Just in case of the emergency of your iPhone or iPod severely lacking in battery power, this credit card-like backup battery can charge up you iOS device when you’re in such a situation.
A few weeks ago, I took advantage of a great deal at my local Best Buy and purchased a brand new Pogoplug Classic (that used to retail at $130) for only 30 BUCKS. For the last few years I’ve been looking for a media server (like the LaCie LaPlug Media Server), and this steal came along. For the longest time, I’ve been using my laptop or my near-10-year-old desktop PC along with some server software (i.e., TVersity, PS3 Media Server, Vuze, Orb, etc.), that that always involved having my computer on ALL OF THE TIME, hogging up a whole lot of power.
