Come for the Microsoft destruction, stay for the slow motion:

ROFL at the operating system taking up 18 GB out of 32 GB on the device.  It’s worth shooting for that reason alone.  That keyboard looks like a pretty slick idea though I’ll give them that, but it looks a bit too flat to be functional without looking down at the keys.

LOL on sale for $604.. regularly $1000? Uh yea I’ll pass.

Thoughts?

Stockpile Designs is the bomb at re-purposing:

The lamp pictured above is made with the tail fins of a 100-lb bomb from the Korean War. Paint and corrosion are removed to expose gleaming steel, interrupted by rough machinists marks from the factory. The interior of the fins retains the original turquoise paint, for a subtle wink of color. Finished with a polished nickel socket, elegant cloth-wrapped cord, and an ultra-premium natural linen shade. – Price: $780

The above lamp is made from a MK23 Practice Bomb was used by the Navy during WWII for dive-bombing trials. The central shaft was fitted with a flare, so the pilots could judge their accuracy from the air.  – Price $120

The above light is made from a Cluster bomb bomblet.  Cluster bombs were hollow cylinders, with compartments packed with these explosive bomblets. At a certain altitude the casing of the cluster bomb would split, and the bomblets would spring open and fall towards the target. Unfortunately, bomblets sometimes failed to detonate on impact, leading to civilian deaths for years after the end of conflict. – Price $90

Really neat stuff.  You automatically know it’s going to be quality just looking at the materials and the craftsmanship from back in the day.  The prices aren’t that bad either, especially for the smaller items.

This guy showed up today:

I threw my G21 in the mix to keep the post gun related. I took the picture using the rear camera on the xoom.  I resized it though before I uploaded it here because it was about 1MB.

My first impression of the xoom is that Android Honeycomb is VERY slick.  There are a few minor quirks that i’m sure will be ironed out in a software update, but overall it displays webpages and functions basically the same as my desktop computer does.

The wordpress admin screen post typing area is sized too big, so I lose track of words typed on the far right side, so I probably won’t try blogging off of it again until that gets fixed… plus it’s always more awkward using a touch screen if you have a full size computer with a keyboard handy anyway.

My main use for this will probably be checking and replying to emails on the go, and scouring the internet for new blog posts… tasks which I believe it will perform quite well.

If you want a xoom, you can see more info and buy one – HERE

Any of you guys have a xoom or any other Android Honeycomb tablet?  Any must have apps I should get?

Rule #1:

Make sure you bring enough guns for all the kids in the class.

I wish I knew the story behind this picture.
