Posting this here in case anyone needs some travel inspiration. Now I've never actually been to New Zealand but these pictures sure are pretty. Also, this destination would be a good trip for you die-hard Lord of the Rings fans out there (all of the movies were shot in New Zealand).

In the market for a new MacBook Air? You might want to wait until next week.In the market for a new MacBook Air? You might want to wait until next week.

While most sites pointed to this week as the possible refresh of the line AllThingsD says that all said rumor mills have been off by a week. They predict that the new MacBook Air will contain Intel's Sandy Bridge processors, Thunderbolt ports, flash storage in the realm of 128 gigabytes or 256 gigabytes. Lastly, the backlit keyboard may make a triumphant return.

Apple seems to have lost yet another iPhone prototype.Apple seems to have lost yet another iPhone prototype.

Here we go again - not sure how Apple would've been able to make the same mistake twice given the publicity of the last prototype that was lost. A teardown of the device has revealed an Apple branded microchip, just like the iPad.

An insightful TED video on why people seem to like Apple products so much.An insightful TED video on why people seem to like Apple products so much.

This is a great video that will challenge your common mode of thinking just three minutes in. The method doesn't only apply to Apple (other inspirational leaders are referenced in the video as well) but it serves as a great example for the entire concept. Mental note to self: watch more TED videos.

It certainly wouldn't be the first time that rumors like this have come around and it certainly won't be the last time either. I'll be patiently refreshing the Apple Store website tomorrow morning just in case though.

Ah, the lost and forgotten art of the classic mix tape, the effect just doesn't seem to be the same with a burned CD or a USB stick. Also, high speed dubbing added a fun factor of plus one to the overall experience.

Always wanted to know what the ten most addictive sounds in the world are?Always wanted to know what the ten most addictive sounds in the world are?

On the list of overall sounds (both branded and non-branded), the sound of a baby giggling grabbed the number one spot, but chip manufacturer Intel's distinctive chime came in at number two. The sound of a vibrating cell phone ranked third.

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.

Google Buzz is a new way to start conversations about the things you find interesting. It's built right into Gmail, so you don't have to peck out an entirely new set of friends from scratch — it just works. If you think about it, there's always been a big social network underlying Gmail.

Wow, that's pretty cool. The display is forty percent transparent at all times yet has a 100,000 to one contrast ratio. Perhaps we will see that interface from Minority Report come to life after all.

Disney officially has the rights to over five thousand of your favorite Marvel comic book characters. You can expect to see most of these characters in the next Kingdom Hearts game or at the very least some kind of Disney versus Marvel Street Fighter type game (which actually sounds kind of cool come to think of it).
