Climate change led to larger brains in humans. And what did we subsequently do with all that intelligence? That's right -- we created more climate change.

The world has much more to fear from weapons that can -- without due process -- target buildings, vehicles, and even individuals than indiscriminate warheads that can destroy entire cities.

The best Android experience I've come across so far: the Samsung Galaxy S3 running CyanogenMod.

Since information didn't exactly flow freely between the United States and the Soviet Union during the Cold War, it isn't widely known that the Soviets took quite an interest in Venus in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. In fact, thirteen Venera probes successful transmitted data from the atmosphere of Venus, and ten probes successfully landed on the planet's surface.

Turns out the iPhone 5 can do vertical panoramas as well as horizontal. The camera app complained the whole time, but the shot turned out exactly as I was hoping. (See more panoramas I shot here.)

Last year, I decided to design and build a Lego monitor stand. Several people have asked me about it, so I figured I would finally post not just pictures, but the LXF (Lego Digital Designer) file, as well. If you...

Taxi drivers are among some of the most interesting people I come into contact with on a regular basis. Most of the drivers I encounter in the cities where I travel are immigrants, and many have unique and very interesting perspectives on the United States. While traveling last week, I had conversations with two such drivers which, together, I believe really capture the ethos of this country.

Thanks to the WebKit Web Inspector, the Chrome Dev Tools, and the openness and transparency of the web, I'm now rolling through Northern Virginia representing all my space-enthusiast and web-developer homies.

I spend almost all my time working with, contemplating, or writing about technology, however I do occasionally get away from the computer. Now that the weather is getting cooler, I thought I'd reflect back on a few adventures we've had recently that were decidedly not technology related.

The other day, I noticed my Canon 7D with a 100mm macro lens on it sitting right beside my MacBook Pro with a Retina display, so I decided to see what 220 pixels per inch looks like blown up. The...

More technology predicted in Containment becomes a reality. This time, it's the ability to save and retrieve data from human DNA.

If you're a cord-cutter, next time you have people over, ask them to come up with some of their favorite internet content and put together your own interactive and collaborative programming. I've never been so certain in my decision to cancel my cable service as I am now.

I've spent about a week with the Nexus 7 tablet now so I thought I'd do a quick video to capture my impressions...

Ever since I switched from iTunes to using web-based music players (Google Music, Amazon Cloud Player, and Pandora), I've wanted the ability to control them with global keyboard shortcuts. The other day, I finally took the time to set it...

Not long ago, I took my two daughters out of school for the day and the three of us went on a field trip to Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum. We weren't there to ride simulators and eat freeze-dried ice cream; we were going in search of inspiration.

My 4th grade daughter was recently given the customary elementary school egg drop project. I was out of town for the week leading up to the event which meant I couldn't help her with the design, so we took a separate but collaborative approach. Here's what we came up with.

I've become a bit of a keyboard geek, so when I re-watched TRON: Legacy recently and saw Sam use that very cool blue-green virtual keyboard, I decided I had to try it for myself. I built one using two iPads and discovered it's much more difficult to use than it looked in the movie.

Today we watched the Space Shuttle Discovery land at Dulles Airport on the back of a 747 for its final flight. It made two passes overhead, and I was well positioned for both.

I recently put together a demo of a very simple, yet very convincing, phishing attack targeting mobile Safari.
