Last year Adobe brought a version of its Lightroom photo-editing software to the iPad enabling on-the-go editing without pulling out the old PC or laptop. Now a version of the app is ready for Android devices and it brings all of the key features from the iOS version to those handsets running Google’s mobile OS. (more…)

World’s craziest Rubik’s Cube (17x17x17) solved in under 8 hours

Published by on Jan 14th, 2015, No Comments


Many people see the Rubik’s Cube as a symbol of hours wasted in feeble attempts to solve it. I actual fact, anyone can learn with some easy to remember algorithms. Of course, when people start mastering it they want to take it to the extreme.

Kenneth Brandon is a YouTuber that has become famous for his puzzle solving capabilities, but more specifically in solving the Rubik’s Cube and all its spinoffs. In 2011, Oskar van Deventer designed a 17x17x17 Rubik’s Cube which he called the “Over the Top Rubik’s Cube”, and in November last year Kenneth took on the challenge. Because this cube needs to be 3D printed, it costs in excess of $1000 because of the materials needed. It is the world’s largest in terms of squares per side.

According to Brandon, solving the 17x17x17 “isn’t that hard” if you’re capable of solving the more standard 3x3x3 or 5x5x5 cubes. It is, however, “very, very tedious.” He created two videos of the solution of the cube: a 6 minute time-lapse as well as the entire solve, which took nearly 8 hours. (more…)

Je Suis Charlie

The world is still reeling from the horrific terrorist attack on French satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdo in Paris last week.

Two masked gunmen entered the offices of the controversial magazine on Wednesday last week and brutally shot and killed 11 of the magazine’s employees.

Following the attack, millions of Parisians, French people and other all across the globe showed their support for freedom of speech and stood in solidarity with Charlie Hebdo – condemning the attack with the hashtag #jesuischarlie

Je suis Charlie translates to ‘I am Charlie’ in English. A powerful message clearing stating that anyone bearing the words ‘je suis Charlie’ are standing in solidarity with the magazine, as they, too are Charlie.

Of course, in our day and age, with social media being at the forefront of breaking, international events, it came as no surprise that such a powerful slogan was transformed into a hashtag that went viral.
