Nissan iPhone case fixes its own scratches

“A few years ago, Nissan developed a type of paint for its cars that can automatically fix scratches — now the company’s taking its tech off your car and onto your iPhone 4 or 4S. The new Nissan Scratch Shield is made of ABS plastic that makes up the case is designed to be more rigid than other plastics, and a gel-style surface that promises to handle scratches better. And did we mention it heals itself? The case’s paint is made of polyrotaxane, which Nissan says reacts when its structure is changed and actually morphs back into its original shape, covering over the scratch. The process takes between an hour and a week depending on the severity of the blemish, and though it can’t handle huge gashes it should do fine with your iPhone’s normal wear and tear. It’s being beta tested in Europe right now — the technology is also being licensed to NTT Docomo to be used in its phones — and if Nissan is happy with the results the case should be on sale later this year, though whether that means it comes to the US or not isn’t clear just yet.”

Instant d’incompréhension pendant l’installation de ZoneAlarm : “Temps à gauche: 10 secondes”.

Temps à gauche, wtf ?

Oh my…

Bon, bah voilà ce qui arrive quand on confie la localization à Google Trad.

La SSII du 42ème étage : je like !

“Dans la SSII du 42ème étage, tous les coups sont permis pour embaucher et placer les consultants en mission. Au 42ème, pour ne pas perdre de temps, c’est dans l’ascenseur que tout se joue. Quand les portes de l’ascenseur se referment, il est déjà trop tard !”

Retrode 2 retro gaming adapter brings SNES / Genesis support to your PC for $85

“We were already head over heels for the original Retrode, and we’ve gotta say — version 2.0 looks mighty good in that attire. As the story goes, the product shown above is the result of some three years of toiling, with the second iteration handling cartridges for Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo. In fact, there’s a pair of ports on here, enabling one cart from each console to be loaded up and carried around. Users need only to find and install an emulator on their machine, plug a cartridge and / or an associated controller into the device and then connect the Retrode 2 to one’s computer via USB. Once you’ve loaded a ROM into your emulator, configured your controller and canceled every appointment on your calendar for the next 48 hours… well, you’re in for quite a weekend of retro gaming nirvana. It’s up for pre-order now in the source link for $84.99, with shipments expected to begin on January 23rd.” by Darren Murph
