Apple destruction:

Barrett-M82Like Omar said, “If you come at the king, you best not miss“.  I don’t think Omar was referring to shooting Apple devices with a .50, but you never know with The Wire… there was so many levels to all the dialog on that show. *whistles Farmer In The Dell*

I’m actually surprised the trajectory didn’t deviate more heavily.

A preview of Richard Ryan shoots the new iPad Air through google glass:

Ugh… that hurts.  I went and saw this new iPad at the Apple Store last week, the screen is beautiful!  It’s funny how anticlimactic the shot is without slow motion.  Full video with slow motion up on Monday!

Richard-Ryan-Keep-Calm-ENDOGoogle glass is definitely something I’d like to try out, I don’t know how much use I would have for it though.

Richard is wearing the 1911 Keep Calm And Carry One t-shirt from ENDO Apparel.

Thoughts?

Ballistics apps for the iphone I can stomach… this just looks retarded:

I’m really at a loss for words with this one… It would absolutely make my day if I ever saw someone using any of those setups in real life.

Isn’t the whole point of night vision in special ops to also remain hidden in the darkness while you’re scoping things out?  How’s that going to work with a big display screen lighting everything up?  Even on the lowest brightness, those screens are still plenty bright when in the dark.  Is the point of using a screen rather then the regular eye piece so that 5 guys can be huddled around it at once?  If not, what is the point?  There is a lot of extra bulk, especially on the ipad example in the pic… but i’m thinking that particular setup might be for a tri-pod or vehicle application.

The eye-pieces on those things must be pretty strong if they can take mounting like that and resist a decent amount of shock.

I thought there was a chance this might just be a troll,  mainly because the Special Operations Apps website looks suspect and doesn’t have any real info on it.  Some more digging though, which lead me to US Night Vision where they sell the iPhone mount and iPad mount for $269 and $499 respectively. *facepalm*

It will be nice if/when night vision cameras are mirrorless someday.  This is one piece of technology that looks like it’s stuck back in the 90s.

In the near future the world has collapsed. You have been hired as a mercenary to fight against the enemy. Be paid for everything you kill and destroy and buy new weapons or upgrade the current ones. 12 weapons (incl. AK-47, M4, SCAR, RPG) with upgradable Scopes, Stocks, Cartridges, Barrels and Frontmouths gives you over 100 combinations! Fight through 80 waves and 4 extra Hell waves in 4 locations.

Looks pretty cool. I might give it a try sometime.

Link to the game in the AppStore – HERE

Started as a joke trailer in Quentin Tarantino’s movie Grindhouse:

Was turned into an equally ridiculous real movie:

Is also a video game available on Apple devices – HERE


Who would have thought I’d be blogging about a “Hobo With A Shotgun” franchise? heh.

I talked about the Parrot AR.Drone in the past… and I still want one real bad. Even more so since this new Augmented Reality game came out where you can control the drone with your iPhone / iPad / iTouch etc.. and hunt your friends drone down in an aerial deathmatch:

  • The price of the drone is $299 (HERE)… which seems fairly reasonable as long as it doesn’t break easily.

It must be expensive raising kids now… I can’t imagine any boy who wouldn’t have this thing on his Christmas list.
