Caribou Coffee Caribou Blend Special Offer

Samantha’s favorite morning coffee is Caribou Coffee Medium Roast. Coffee is not my cup of tea (literally ;-)) but I can attest that it has a wonderful smell! If you are interested in trying this coffee too, or are already a fan, Amazon is currently running a special on Caribou Coffee K-Cups where you get a free Kind Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate / Protein Bar. This are pretty tasty bars in my opinion and the kicker is that the coffee

New larger format 3D printer

I have been eyeing a 3D printer but had been waiting before purchasing because none of the semi-reasonably priced (<$2500) models seemed to have a large enough printing area/volume for my purposes. Specifically, I would really like to try 3D printing some discgolf discs. Most discs are circles about 8-9 inches (20-23 cm) in diameter and unfortunately most entry level printers have a max print area of 7 inch by 9 inch or so… not quite large enough. 🙁 Therefore I was

Add torrent/magnet links directly from Chrome to uTorrent

Sometimes I really miss firefox. What was very simple years ago has proved surprisingly tricky for me on Chrome. I am looking for a way to ‘single click’ and add torrents to a remote instance of uTorrent. So far I have not had any luck using this Chrome extension: 🙁 So the quest will continue and hopefully I will soon have success to report! 🙂

Acer Aspire One AO756 memory upgrade and SSD swap

The Acer Aspire One AO756 is a nice little laptop that is available for a quite reasonable price (usually around $270 USD). As an added perk, with a few easy upgrades it can be even better! The AO756 allows for easy access to the RAM (memory) and unlike many of its brethren, it actually has two memory slots allowing for up to 16GB of memory to be installed! The hard drive is also easily accessible in case you want to

Milk jugs used for cheap 3D printing!

3D printing is a very cool topic and this news makes it even more intriguing: 🙂 With 3D printing, anyone with a 3D printer can make just about anything using a digital design and plastic filament. And while you can get simple open-source printers for surprisingly cheap (anywhere from $250-$500), one kilogram of the plastic filament can set you back between $30-$50. But there’s one solution that might be sitting in your refrigerator right now: milk jugs. via How milk jugs

Drastically improved search for (WordPress based blog)

While using the internal search feature on my blog recently, I realized how worthless it was. As an example, searching for ‘exede review‘ came up with a bunch of mildly relevant results but by far the most relevant search result was on the second page. Not good. 🙁 Default WordPress search stinks The reason this happened is that by default WordPress sorts search results by date. So if you happen to have some recent posts that contain a keyword, they will

Gmail Blue, TOO advanced?

It has been unbelievably hard to use such a groundbreaking product as Gmail Blue and not be able to tell the world about it. Now that the NDA has been lifted, I can finally talk a little about Gmail Blue. Before the full review and benchmarks, which I am sure many other sites will have as well, I feel a word of warning is in order: +Sure, I love Gmail Blue. It really is light years ahead of the competition. Nobody else has that much Blue. Period. -So what
