Thanks to calculators, solving mathematical equations both complicated and simple is a piece of cake. However sometimes solving equations can take a while as you might have to enter long equations and their symbols into the calculator, and mistyping a symbol or missing a bracket could result in the wrong answer.

Well that’s what apps such as PhotoMath are for. The app has been designed to allow users to solve mathematical equations by pointing their phone’s camera at the equation and the app will solve it for you. In fact the app will also be able to break down the steps it took to solve the equation if you’re interested in the process rather than the answer.

homeboy 640x426There are probably many different types of home security cameras available in the market today, but if you’re looking for an alternative, perhaps the Homeboy could be worth checking out. Designed by Mark Richards who was frustrated after having his home burglarized for the third time, the Homeboy is a tiny home surveillance camera that mounts on the wall or ceiling via magnets.

In a way this allows users to pretty much place the camera wherever they want and can shift it around as needed. All they’d need to do is install the base on the wall or ceiling or wherever they want, and they can easily mount/dismount the device as needed. The Homeboy also comes with a battery life of three months so you won’t have to worry about it running out of juice anytime soon.

retina imac macpro 64bit october 2014 singlecore 640x452Apple’s Mac Pro has been designed for power-users in mind where those users might have the need for high-end components and powerful hardware to edit videos, music, photos, or run applications that might require a lot of processing/graphics power. As for the iMac, these desktop systems have mainly been designed for regular users, but recent benchmark sightings have suggested that power-users might be interested in the new Retina iMacs.

As noted by John Poole of Primate Labs, it seems that the 27-inch Retina iMac with an Intel Core i7-4790K clocked at 4.0GHz has managed to outperform the low-end Mac Pro with an Intel Xeon E5-1620 v2 clocked at 3.7GHz. However it should be pointed out that this is only for single-core performance and that for multi-core performance, the Mac Pros for the most part have trumped the iMac.

That being said, another hoverboard called the Hendo by Greg and Jill Henderson, has appeared and is being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, but this time it looks like it is the real deal.

Now before you get too excited at the idea of zipping down the streets on it like Marty McFly of Back to the Future fame, there are some caveats regarding the device. This is based on the accounts from, publications such as the New York Times and The Verge who actually managed to ride the device. Read full post →The Hoverboard Is Finally Here, Sort Of
