While he was talking about cloud computing yesterday , Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer made a casual remark about the future of the Xbox. Apparently there might be new form factors, options, and price points coming: In the case of the TV we’ve got both strategies. We actually have a TV implementation in some senses built into Windows,” Ballmer said. “It works really well for small screen TVs that you might call a PC, but for that big screen device here’s a piece of hardware that we build, there’s no diversity

Convert Your Nation Into Star-Shaped Islands And Save It From Sinking [Concepts]

The Maldives, a small nation consisting of 1,200 islands is gradually disappearing as sea levels rise. In an attempt to save the place, their government has signed off on the development of several “floating facilities” like this one. Dutch Docklands/Dutch Watervalley, makers of many floating homes, are the starry-eyed folks working with the Maldives government on this project and they intend on creating tiered—and yes, star-shaped—mini-cities which won’t be bothered by rising sea levels. There doesn’t appear to be a timeline for the project yet, but I’m assuming they’ll get around to completing it before the entire nation disappears

An Apple patent worth gawking at, given its grander ambitions for advertising , iTunes and TV subscriptions : It details a way to make you watch ads embedded into video content, like say, a free or cheap TV show. Conceptually, it’s not too dissimilar from what you see with Hulu, actually—essentially, in order to unlock further segments of the video, you have to watch an ad. You know, just like real TV worked, before DVRs! The patent goes in-depth about how ads would be embedded with content that could be downloaded to multiple devices—like an iPhone or iPad—how it’d react to trying to jump ahead of the ad, and gathering statistics about how the ad was viewed or interacted with.

We’re also curious about what your favorite (and work safe!) photoshopped images are. I’ll confess that some of my favorite images come from Fark.com and our Photoshop contests , but sometimes there are these random gems that keep you giggling or staring in awe. Let’s see those and please keep things safe for work.
