The Verge Drives A SuperCar

Things I learned driving a supercar for the first time:

Driving a car like this onto an incline — basically any driveway — is a surgical procedure that requires hyperactive situational awareness and a thought-out stratagem. Driving slowly and deliberately isn’t enough: if you don’t plan correctly, that just means you’ll scrape the undercarriage in excruciating slow motion. (And I don’t want to know what happens if you bottom out at high speed.)

Evernote Brings On New CEO Chris O'Neill

Meet Evernote’s New CEO Chris O’Neill:

Today, Evernote has 150 million users worldwide. Each of these individuals is raising their hand, looking for a different way to get work done. The need is massive. Evernote’s potential is enormous. We’ve proven the potential. Now we have to fulfillĀ it.

Kudos to Phil and the Evernote team, this is a big step. I’m a huge Evernote user, most everything in my life goes in there in some form, work, receipts, documents, photography… the whole thing. Evernote feels like it’s stagnated lately though, not that the apps are bad, but I’d love to see more. I’m sure that Mr. O’Neill will take the great system it is now and make it even better.

What's Up With Perl 6

This Interview with Larry Wall has a nice look at the State of the Onion on what’s up with Perl 6, in development for 15 years, and due to be released at the end of this year. Do I believe it? Maybe. Is perl still a relevant language? That’s for you to decide.

Ash vs Evil Dead | Official Trailer

Just when you thought the trailer parade was over, check out Ash vs Evil Dead, with Bruce Campbell in what looks like the perfect way to come back to the series.

Can’t wait for this one as well!

Awesome Trailers From Comic-Con 2015

Lots of amazing posts lately. Lets go!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Deadpool’s trailer leaked. It’s horrible quality, and may be deleted soon, but it’s still awesome.

Fear the Walking Dead has got an official trailer. My wife hates zombie shows, so this one I’ll be watching alone.

Last, but definitely not least comes a long trailer for Batman vs Superman, possibly the most awesome one yet. I don’t care what you naysayers say, Battfleck looks great and this looks like a great follow up to the previous (and not that well received) superman movie.

VirtualBox 5.0 Released

I don’t use virtualization as much as I have in the past lately, however seeing that VirtualBox 5.0 has been released makes me happy.

One-Minute Time Machine

One-Minute Time Machine is a pretty amazing little video about time travel and a (you guessed it) one minute time machine.

Locked in a Vegas Hotel Room with a Phantom Flex

Locked in a Vegas Hotel Room with a Phantom Flex is yet more proof that everything is more awesome in slo-mo, or in this case, super slo-mo.
