Have a peek at some concept art for Pixar's 2013-2014 movies and beyond.Have a peek at some concept art for Pixar's 2013-2014 movies and beyond.

In 2014 it's their if-dinosaurs-didn't-go-extinct movie titled The Good Dinosaur, directed by Bob Peterson, with a tease we've seen before. In 2015 it's Pete Docter's 'Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind', now titled The Inside Out; and in 2016 they've also got Lee Unkrich's movie about Día de los Muertos, which we really don't know much about at all. Notably missing is Andrew Stanton's sequel Finding Nemo 2.

Twelve cool Apple iPhone concepts for you to gawk at.Twelve cool Apple iPhone concepts for you to gawk at.

Toxel has put together a list of iPhone concepts from all over the Interwebs ranging from cool to never-gonna-happen-this-lifetime. Some of these mockups may or may not already be in violation of several pending Apple patents. Seriously, has anyone taken a look at Apple's patent portfolio these days? It's quite extensive, they hold over 16,000 of them worldwide. Just reading this post probably puts you in patent violation.

No, Google does not make you stupid according to recently conducted survey.No, Google does not make you stupid according to recently conducted survey.

The impetus for the survey apparently came from a summer 2009 article in the Atlantic Monthly, in which author Nicholas Carr suggested that the ease of browsing and searching on the Web was steadily degrading people’s ability to concentrate and think.

FYI, calling 911 for similar non-emergency situations like this this not just once, not just twice, but over thirty times in a specific time frame is grounds for 911 abuse. Be sure to write this down in your life lesson book kids.
