    Developer finds evidence supporting 3x resolution coming to iPhone
    It has been speculated for some time that if Apple does decide to make larger iPhone screens as it now appears to be doing, that resolution would have to increase dramatically, which could cause headaches for developers. However, new testing by Dragthing creator James Thompson has revealed that Apple may instead rely on pixel-tripling, asking developers only to provide assets at 1x, 2x, and 3x the logical screen resolution. This could yield Retina-quality images on devices with larger displays....

    Company compiles Apple's Swift for use with Android, Windows .NET
    A compiler company called RemObjects has created a new front end for its own Elements compiler called Silver that allows developers to write code hooking into APIs and frameworks outside iOS, letting them write native apps for iOS and Android. The project has also been made to work with both the Fire IDE and .NET, allowing Windows Phone developers to use Swift through the Visual Studio IDE. While not a universal write-once-run-anywhere solution, Silver could prove to be a boon for small developers who want to create Android and Windows Phone versions of their iOS apps written in Swift....

The women include Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Olivia Munn, Katy Perry, Cameron Diaz, Mila Kunis, Bar Refaeli, Anne Hathaway, and Natalie Portman. The result? A woman with three lips.

    Great, I'll Be Hungry All Night: Giant French Fries Bed
    french-fry-bed-1.jpg This is the Supersize Bed designed and built by Cecilia Carey and Harry Parr. It looks suspiciously like a giant pack of McDonald's fries. All the fries are actually removable pillows though, so you and a sleepover friend can use them to try to beat each other off the bed like American Gladiators. *thwack!* F*** YEAH, I'M GOING TO THE ELIMINATOR! When reached for comment about the bed, the McDonald's Fry Kids could not be found, because the bed IS McDonalds Fry Kids. DUM DUM DUM! Keep going for a closeup of the fry pillows.

It just goes to show you, if you try hard and believe in yourself, nothing can hold you back from your dreams. Except dying, so stop texting and driving like a jackass. Hit the jump to see his routine.

    Pee Here And We'll Post It On Youtube: The Czech Republic Anti-Public Urination Sign
    youtube-shame-public-urination.jpg This is the anti-public urination sign spotted near the Hotel Marcin?ák in Mikulov, Czech Republic. It threatens public pissers with the shame of a video of them doing the deed being posted to Youtube. Do they even have a camera installed? No clue. But one blogger plans on taking a vacation to find out! God willing, I'll be so successful they give me my own Youtube channel. Thanks to Brock, who agrees the key to successful public urination is lots of bushes and pushing it out as hard and fast as you can. Just pretend you're a fire hose trying to put out a burning house.

    Damn: Milky Way Galaxy Over Yellowstone National Park
    milky-way-over-yelllowstone-640.jpg Note: Worthwhile larger version HERE. Full-res version available from NASA here (click the photo). This is a composite of 16 separate photos taken and stitched together by astronomer Dave Lane to create a panorama of the Milky Way Galaxy's central band above Silex Spring in Yellowstone National Park. Damn, that is a whole lot of beauty in one photo. Like if you stitched together every Playboy centerfold, then if you looked at them from far away they all formed ANOTHER naked lady. Yeah, just like that. A nipple for every star. Thanks to Pavel, who likes to stargaze at night and ponder the meaning of life. Me? I like to get just drunk enough to pass out and not wake up at all in the middle of the night.

    The Eva Solo Lunch Box ? who knew bringing a lunch box to work could be classy?

It’s only one meal, but it can rack up a hefty sum at an alarming rate if you’re not careful. While making food at home isn’t too much cheaper (depending on what restaurants you eat at), it ...
