!! OMG, congratulations! Apple CEO Tim Cook comes out, considers his sexuality to be “one of God’s greatest gifts” !!

In an editorial at Bloomberg Businessweek today, Apple CEO Tim Cook reveals he’s proud to be gay.

“So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.” Cook explains that “plenty” of Apple employees know he’s gay and “it doesn’t seem to make a difference in the way they treat me.”

Tim says he’s normally a private dude, but feels that it’s important to share with the world this type of information in order to inform and inspire others to feel okay.

“I don’t consider myself an activist, but I realize how much I’ve benefited from the sacrifice of others. So if hearing that the CEO of Apple is gay can help someone struggling to come to terms with who he or she is, or bring comfort to anyone who feels alone, or inspire people to insist on their equality, then it’s worth the trade-off with my own privacy.”

Wow! Inspiring! When you consider industries where sexuality is often left unspoken about, you never really think about the tech world! Big-ups and huge congrats to Tim for showing all the gay tech nerds out there that it’s okay (and even GREAT) if your hardware is built a little differently.

!! OMG, attention poindexters: The underground world of USB “Dead Drops” !!

dead_drop_3.jpg
Aram Bartholl, a Berlin-based media artist, has started a new way of sharing files offline and “underground”. During his residency 3 years ago at EYEBEAM in NYC, Aram started by creating the first of 5 “Dead Drops” which are:

part of an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs accessible to anybody in public space. Everyone is invited to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data. Each dead drop is installed empty except a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is open to participation. If you want to install a dead drop in your city/neighborhood follow the ‘how to’ instructions and submit the location and pictures.

Since then, Aram has kept a comprehensive map of drops around the world, documenting the locations of each (Click HERE for an interactive more specific map). Check out a how-to video on how to create your own Dead Drop after the jump.

It’s probably boring as all-Hell 6 feet underground. If I had the money to burn on stupid shit (I don’t), this would be a product I could invest in.
What if when you die, you just lay there awake unable to move? This coffin will at least ensure that I’ve got all my Ke$ha CDs down there with me. My dream would be to spend eternity with Ke$ha just rapping to me while I lay there stuck…
Anyway, Swedish audio makers Pause Ljud & Bild have created The CataCombo Sound System. It’s a coffin with a customized audio system that allows you to bring along your favorite playlists as you enter your final resting place. Here are the coffin’s specs:
