Pizza delivery is a pretty fast and painless ordeal the majority of the time as big-name chain pizzerias are able to deliver your order within a reasonable amount of time. But there are times when a delivery can take forever due to unforeseen circumstances, like bumper-to-bumper traffic, which is why we need something like Domino’s DomiCopter in our life.

Domino’s Pizza UK came up with the proof-of-concept, which use an octocopter along with an insulated Domino’s delivery bag held by four large claws. The DomiCopter is said to easily allow for multiple pizzas to be delivered, although two pizza pies currently meet the copter’s weight limit. A video demonstrating the DomiCopter in action was uploaded onto YouTube, showing the octocopter delivering a pizza to someone after maneuvering through a number of obstacles.

Since it’s only a proof-of-concept, don’t expect any pizzas to go flying by any time soon. Hopefully we won’t have to wait too long until something like this is used, which could be a double-edged sword as we definitely want hot pizza as fast as possible, but we also don’t want random pizzas falling onto us.



grand theft auto iv street view

While we all eagerly await the release of Grand Theft Auto V to explore its massive map, you can now stroll your way through Grand Theft Auto IV through Google Street View.

A version of Grand Theft Auto IV’s Liberty City map using Google Maps’ API has been made available for a few years now, which up until this point was used to point out where you can pick up health, armor and weapon pick ups, but it recently received an update to allow for those who download it to make their way through Liberty City through Google Street View.

A total of 80,000 in-game screenshots were combined into around 3,000 panoramic views in order for the Google Street View version. It’s still not complete, although what’s missing are just a few ramps, which we’re sure you can make due without.

Those interested in checking out the Google Street View version of Liberty City can check it out over at Grand Theft Auto IV fan site, GTA4.net.



Back in 2008, Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” was quite the hit with the kids due to a combination of Mraz’s lyrics and his honey of a voice. No matter where you went, you probably heard the song being played at your local ice cream shop, on the radio in your car or even in a television ad. I’m Yours was a juggernaut of a song, but this version of the song being played on two cellphones using only the touch tones.

Assaf Avital somehow took the time to not only figure out the tones for the main track of the song, which Mraz sings, but he also was able to throw in the song’s background track. Avital combines them both to create a short, 1-minute clip of the song’s main chorus, and is extremely impressive considering the tech he’s using to play the song.

I’m Yours isn’t the only song Avital plays on two cellphones as he has an entire YouTube channel where he covers popular songs from Lady Gaga, The Black Eyed Peas and Katy Perry. We don’t know about you, but we’re going to spend the rest of our afternoon watching all of his videos.


gmail ios update

It’s been quite the past couple of weeks if you’re a Gmail user as we’ve seen its desktop, mobile and Android versions receive an update and it looks iOS users are now receiving their own updated version of Gmail.

Gmail for iOS version 2.3.14159 brings a small number of improvements, but improvements we’re sure most users will appreciate. The first improvement Google rolled out was to Gmail for iOS’ notifications options as you’ll now be able to customize what kind of messages you’ll receive a notification for on an account basis.

The second improvement brings the new mobile inbox we’ve seen on Android, which means you’ll be able to use Gmail’s new sorted inbox, although you’ll need to activate the new inbox through the desktop version of Gmail before it shows up in the Gmail iOS app.

The new Gmail for iOS update brings this version one step closer to offering an identical experience to its Android app and is one Gmail users should definitely update right this second.


Intel Tv platform

Samsung and Intel are taking their partnership to a whole new level. Just today Intel announced that its processor is indeed powering Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 tablet, even though Samsung hadn’t mentioned that at the tablet’s launch. They have announced a tie-up on Tuesday which will enable Samsung TVs to stream media content from Intel powered PCs without needing a standalone receiver. Intel’s Wireless Display technology, which will enable this, will be integrated in Samsung TVs by the end of this year.

Intel’s latest processors have Wireless Display capabilities, the chip maker says that it will bring this technology over to mobile devices like tablets and smartphones, eventually. Some 10 million Wireless Display enabled TVs are already available from Toshiba, TCL and LG. With Samsung being added to the mix as well, Intel could see that number double by the end of 2013. It hasn’t been revealed as yet how much these TVs will cost or when they’re likely to be released. If we were to speculate, there’s a high possibility that Samsung’s Wireless Display enabled TVs might be released around the holiday season.


pinterest search your own pins

Pinterest has announced today that it is now allowing users to search their own pins. For now this feature is going to be rolled out on the website, Pinterest says that it will be available on mobile soon enough. The feature will make it easier for users to rediscover the stuff that they’ve already pinned.

The way this works is that users enter a word in the search bar and then filter the results by clicking on ‘Just my pins.’ Its as simple as that. The results will display everything that has been pinned with that particular keyword in the description. To make finding pins in the future easier, Pinterest suggests that users add relevant words in the descriptions of their pins. In March Pinterest rolled out a new look for its users, but brought back many of the old features just one month later. These features included the @ mentions and ‘via’ links. Pinterest has been tweaking the service consistently over the past couple of months to make user experience better. Are you excited about finally having the ability to search your own pins?

samsung sign bgr

Big companies roping in mega stars to augment their brand image is nothing new. BlackBerry is doing the same with Alicia Keys and Verizon recently announced a partnership with Jennifer Lopez. According to the New York Post, Samsung wants a piece of the celebrity pie as well. The Korean manufacturer is reportedly roping in rap mogul Jay Z, who is apparently going to cost Samsung more than $20 million. This deal could see Jay Z appearing in Samsung product commercials and possibly even placing some products in his music videos and such. Though it is being speculated that perhaps Jay Z will make a new music streaming service through which he will be able to promote his music and acts on mobile devices.

Samsung already spends more on marketing than most major manufacturers, according to some reports it even outspent Apple’s $333 million budget with its $401 million budget. Having Jay Z on board will definite boost Samsung’s brand value. There has been no confirmation as yet from either side, so it can’t be said for sure when an official announcement of this partnership will be made.

xbox one laI am quite sure that many of you out there are more than stoked at the upcoming Xbox One console’s release, where it is widely speculated that both Sony and Microsoft will deliver additional details concerning their respective consoles at this year’s E3. It seems that the folks over at Microsoft have something else entirely in mind, that is to allow the general public to fiddle around with a shiny new Xbox One an entire day before that. Just how is that possible? Well, Major Nelson claims that the Xbox One ought to make an appearance over at the Microsoft Store this coming June 10, at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles.

Of course, the National Guard will also be flown in to make sure that the display unit of the Xbox One is not snatched away suddenly by an over-enthusiastic member of the public. There will also be members of the Xbox team being there, where you will be given a chance to try out your gaming skills on the brand new console with them.
