Web Designers vs. Web Developers [infographic]:
If you don’t work in the tech industry, you may not know the difference between web designers and web developers. In fact, there are many differences between these two professions. From qualifications, to job duties, to salary, developers and designers don’t have too much in common. Learn more about these jobs by checking out this hilarious infographic.
Android 4.0 still has something to prove in my opinion, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t like the Galaxy Nexus. Looks amazing.
Bigger isn’t always better and more isn’t always merrier. Proof lies in the latest device from Korean company Celluon whose LASERKEY design replaces the need for a traditional keyboard with a virtual holographic display that tracks your typing on any flat surface.

If web browsers were celebrities [Infographic]:
Just like Hollywood’s wildest celebrities, internet web browsers seem to each have a personality and temper of their own. While Safari can act up like Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction, Firefox has a more Morgan Freeman approach to life. Check out this infographic to see if you agree with each web browser’s celebrity counterpart.
Sometimes when I get off of work, I go straight to the bar. The espresso bar that is. I enjoy a nice cup or two to get my “mojo” back. I often hit up Buzz Bakery to chat it up with my partner Carl about life, and the app that Activebright is creating. While buzz is mainly a cupcake spot, their hidden gem is that they serve madcap coffee. Madcap in my opinion is the best coffee in the city. Smooth and it hits you immediately.
Okay, this is just freaky. We know LED lights are versatile enough to be used for practically anything, but LED contact lenses? Really?! Yes, as it turns out, really. University of Washington researchers have figured out how to implant semitransparent red and blue LED lights in contact lenses, for the purpose of receiving and displaying data in sharp visual images and video. This means wearers will literally be able to watch TV or view photos that are projected directly onto their eyeballs.
Once miniature green LEDs are developed (and they’re in the works, as of now), full color displays will be possible. Once that happens, the possibilities are endless. Think about everything your smart phone can do right now, and imagine the same being possible for your eyeball. This news is a little scary and a lot fascinating, if you ask me—at the very least, with LED contact lenses, your hands would be free to pet your robot or tinker with your hover board.
Lead researcher Babak Parvis comments “You won’t necessarily have to shift your focus to see the image generated by the contact lens,” it would just appear in front of you and your view of the real world will be completely unobstructed when the display is turned off.
Ah, the real world. With augmented reality becoming a reality, it feels like the real world is fast becoming a relic of the past.
