Jay Vanity.

In my book, there’s a huge difference between being attractive and having sex appeal.  Jennifer Lopez is attractive, she’s beautiful, and is the type of person I’d be ecstatic to be in the same room with.  Lisa Ann however has a ridculous amount of sex appeal, but some wouldn’t necessarily put her in the same spectrum as Mrs. Lopez.  Finding a balance between attractive, and sexy is always good, but Jay Vanity is off the charts with both those qualities.  Jay says she’s got a good attitude to accompany her stunning looks, and when working with a professional model, there’s nothing more satisfying than having fun with the people your shooting.   Ms. Vanity has appeared in Show Magazine, done work for Dstroyr Clothing, and has been a Capristan swim suit model, but personally I’d like to see a lot more of her.  Check out some of her work below.

The Grand 350 Aston Martin Cell Phone.

After the Mobiado concept phone for Aston Martin, the Canadian luxe phone-maker is finally out with the first phone off the Aston Martin collection.  The Grand 350 Aston Martin body is CNC machined from aircraft specification aluminum, and anodized to produce an elegant hard surface. The frame is then inlayed with sapphire crystal.  The infrared window is made from a solid piece of ruby crystal. The screws are stainless steel or gun metal black stainless steel.  The buttons of the Grand 350 Aston Martin are a dramatic combination of sapphire crystal and stainless steel.  The phone is available in three designer styles; black, black satin, and silver.  The Grand 350 Aston Martin is unlocked, with quad-band GSM/EGSM, 3.5G, HSPDA, and WLAN connectivity.  The phone works within North America, Europe, Africa, Asia- Pacific, and South America where GSM/EGSM 850/900/1800/1900 networks are available.  It is equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera and video camera, integrated GPS, 2.36″ display with up to 16 million colors, Bluetooth and micro USB connectivity, as well as a music and video player with a 2.5mm AV connector.

The Franklin Project.

No matter what industry you work in, if you have a job, you have an appreciation for money, but for some people having it is just as good as looking at it.  The visual esthetic of the $100 bill hasn’t changed too drastically in the last 20 years, but recently a collection sprouted of reinventions of the bill with Mr. Franklin’s face.  There were some whimsical additions to the collection (like the one above) but I tried to focus on the cooler/more practical ones.  Check the method below.

What Did One Robot Say To The Other?

What did one chatbot say to the other chatbot? Quite a lot, actually (but good luck making any sense out of it.)  That’s what researchers from Cornell’s Creative Machines Lab recently discovered, after pitting two bots against one another for a good ol’ fashioned talk-off.  It’s all part of the lab’s submission to this year’s Loebner Prize Competition in Artificial Intelligence (an event that awards $100,000 to the team whose computer programs can conduct the most human-like conversations). Unfortunately for Cornell’s squad, their chatbots still have a long way to go before achieving conversational coherence, though they could easily get hired as anchors on most cable news networks. Throughout the course of their frenetic (and often snippy) discussion, one bot raised a heavy question about God and existence, while the other boldly claimed to be a unicorn. Basically, they had the exact same conversation we used to have in our dorm rooms every night, at around 4 am. Watch it for yourself, it’s intriguing and quite funny all at the same time.

KJ – Ex Explanation.

It’s always hard to see someone in your life walk away (for whatever reason).  Be it an ex-girlfriend, and ex-boyfriend, an ex-client, or a best friend, there’s always some part of the brain or heart that yearns for that individual to come back.  Seeing as how my good friend, the emcee extraordinaire KJ is leaving the Bay for a bit, I only figured it’d be fitting that I release her track about missing loved ones to the world.  Re-engineered, and re-edited, KJ’s singing debut about missing someone special seemed like the perfect goodbye present.  Click the pic to download.
