Elders Play Grand Theft Auto V (Elders React: Gaming)

This is a great watch. Could potentially be combined with another video of elders that was doing the round lately, but I digress..

Fucking moon! How does it work?

I don’t even have the words to describe this, just watch it..

How the Industry's Most Popular Wrestler Exposed the WWE in One Interview

For fans of WWE through to those who are only mildly interested, this story is worth a read. In fact it’s probably potentially interesting to anyone interested in what can go on behind the scenes in a professional sporting environment, or interested in athlete longevity.

Turn your skateboard into art

Turn your skateboard into art with Wall Ride

Displaying your sporting equipment as art is the perfect way to add something functional, beautiful and completely different to your walls. After all, it’s not every day you walk into a place–outside of a sporting goods store–and see snowboards or skateboards hung up on the walls. The only problem with most of the displays is that they make it inconvenient to actually use your boards. If you ride a skateboard, Wall Ride is the perfect piece of hardware to proudly display your board on the wall. Made of laser-cut metal and powder-coated in black, orange or white, each Wall Ride has enough space for your board, keys, headphones, hats, lanyards, tablets, books, watches, the list goes on and on. With two shelves, three hooks and a dedicated spot for your board (which, when not occupied can also be used as a bottle opener), Wall Ride is the perfect transportation hub for the skateboard enthusiast.

Back in the old days this would have been even cooler, because the use of rails on the underside of boards meant that the graphics lasted longer than 10 minutes.

I’m currently trying out Nintype. I’m not sure if it’ll stick, but it’s an interesting experiment. If you’re an iOS user and are interested in testing out alternate keyboards, then this review (and specifically the image at the top of the review) will give you an idea if Nintype is right for you or if it’s going to send you into an epileptic fit:

Is This Psychedelic iOS Keyboard The Craziest UI In Design History?

Use Google Spreadsheets as your CMS

Because, why not? Enterprises run on spreadsheets, so why shouldn't your website?

DATA by Brace is an interesting concept.

Devtools Tips

A developer's choice of browser dev tools is fast becoming the passionate argument to replace the old favourite of "Which text editor do you use". If you use Chrome's Devtools then Devtoolstips.com looks packed with helpful ways to use it better. If you don't use Chrome's Devtools, then maybe this site could help convince you to switch.

(I'm in the latter category for now, for what it's worth)

Manipulating ATM Machines with Malware

Tyupkin: Manipulating ATM Machines with Malware is an interesting breakdown on some ATM Malware found in the wild. It’s a quick and interesting read.

The article contains this statement, which is a very polite way of saying “Stop running fucking Windows XP”:

The fact that many ATMs run on operating systems with known security weaknesses and the absence of security solutions is another problem that needs to be addressed urgently.

Yes indeed.
