Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on May 25th, 2010

Google is no stranger to cleaning house when it needs to. There are too many older web browsers out there and so the search engine giant has announced that its popular Google Reader will be ditching support for older browsers like IE6, Firefox 1.0, 2.0, Safari 2.0, 3.0, and even Chrome versions 1, 2, and 3.

Google says that the move will allow it to spend its time improving Google Reader instead of fixing issues with these old browsers. If you’re still using an old browser version, why? And hey, you better upgrade.

DIY SpokePOV lights up your bike, shows support for Obama

Posted in DIY by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2008

DIY SpokePOV lights up your bike, shows support for ObamaIt used to be that all you could do with your bike spokes was insert a baseball card or sport a generic reflector. My favorite was always the aluminum can on the back tire. But I digress. Now it’s all about LEDs. This moving endorsement of Obama comes from a Flickr user that used six SpokePOV kits to turn his bike wheel into an awesome, illuminated Obama sign. Now he can campaign for his candidate just by riding his bike. If you want to make your own, all of the .dat files necessary to reproduce the effect are available on Aneel’s Flickr site. You can customize it to endorse whichever candidate you want. Pretty neat.
