Imagine today's government backing a program to document the plight of modern day farmers. Many might malign such use of resources, or the value of the endeavor. But, that's exactly what the Farm Security Administration did between 1935 and 1944 (i.e. the great depression). Photographers were dist...

Ever wonder what a PowerBook would look like after falling from the top of a building? Apparently that's exactly what happened to this poor fella. The photographer who snapped this tragic picture doesn't provide much detail beyond the fact that it was thrown, but judging by the damage the laptop s...

Unfortunately, the app, which requires iOS 7.1 and works on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, leads to frustration and general annoyance. The concept is simple. When the alarm goes off you grab yo...

I love my MacBook Air, but I couldn't possibly turn down a deal like this. A fiver for a gorgeous machine like that? Look at that screen, those massive hinges, and that classic trackball embedded right in the center. What a beauty. [Photo credit: Oskay]

If your old Mac is too busted, too slow, or too ancient to be repurposed or sold, what can you do with it? Turn it into a goofy robot, apparently. The Harman Kardon Soundsticks subwoofer as a head is a beautiful touch, I must say. [Photo credit: Turner Burns]
