For all you steak lovers out there, here’s an infographic showing all the different cuts of beef, their general cost, and suggested cooking methods. Study it good. That way the next time you’re at a restaurant and your date orders some form of round steak, you can confidently say, “Solid choice, honey — that particular cut comes from right around the cow’s asshole.”
Thanks to Tal, who agrees the best cut isn’t from a cow at all, it’s from a cake. Somebody red velvet me, pronto.

If you have actually ever before spent time watching Iron Chef or other cooking shows, probabilities are you’ve become aware of the term sous vide and recognize the wonders of cooking with immersion circulators. For those not in the know, an immersion circulator cooks food in a water bath at a precise (to the qualification) temp to ensure excellent doneness of dishes. Nomiku’s an immersion circulator that clips onto any pot of water, giving residence cooks the capacity to sous vide to their heart’s material at temps up to 100 degrees Celsius. The tool is a machined aluminum tube and warmth sink, with a 1.3-inch touchscreen OLED display on top encompassed by a plastic knob. Inside is an impeller and 750W PTC heating element that circulates water at up to 10 liters per moment and heat it to within.2 levels Celsius of the climate you choose. Simply touch the touchscreen to turn it on, stick it in a pot with up to 5 gallons of water, turn the knob to set your climate, touch the screen again to obtain it going and, presto, you (or your sous chef bot) will certainly be cooking succulent meats like Bobby Flay in no time.

For now, Nomiku exists just in prototype form, however the people behind it have actually introduced a Kickstarter page to obtain the finance required to ramp up processing. We may see the prototype in individual, and as an easygoing dabbler in the culinary arts, the appeal was simple for us to see. It’s dead simple to make use of, and is about the exact same size as a hand blender, so most people will not have an issue identifying a spot for it in their cooking area. In speaking with its makers, we discovered that they produced Nomiku to make sous vide cooking easy and (relatively) inexpensive. You see, existing immersion circulators price between $ 500 – $ 2000, which places them out of reach for most residence cooks, however Nomiku (must the venture get cashed) will definitely retail for $ 299. Itchin’ to get one in your kitchen area? Well, head on down to the source link to assist make it happen, and feel free of charge to peruse our gallery of pics while you await its arrival.

Ben Heck is always thinking up gadgets that make life easier, from completely hands-free luggage to a sensor system for improved cycling safety. His latest mod is meant for those of us who have burnt Ramen a few too many times. His so-called Ben-Stur Remote Control Android app works with a pot-stirring device, freeing users to stray from the kitchen while their meal is cooking. The app works via Bluetooth, and the pot-stirrer consists of an actuator arm, a chip clip, a timing belt and, of course, a wooden spoon. Heck used a Google ADK and an Arduino Uno for the control mechanism that communicates between the app and the stirrer. In the tablet app, users can check their food’s temperature and control the speed of the the spoon’s stirring. If that whets your appetite, click the source link for more info — and check out our Maker Faire interview with Mr. Heckendorn himself.
Back when rumors of Google’s fabled augmented-reality glasses began picking up steam, one of the most frequently repeated bits was that they bore a striking resemblance to (rather old) Oakley’s Thump mp3-friendly sunglasses. The concept that Google eventually revealed looked nothing like them, but it turns out Oakley may eventually throw their hat into the smart eyewear ring.
In a brief interview with Bloomberg, Oakley CEO Colin Baden revealed that the company has been working on a way to project information directly onto lenses since 1997. Once perfected, the technology would allow the company to create a rival to Google’s Project Glass
Baden neither confirmed nor denied that Oakley would release a pair of smart glasses, though he seemed to have quite a few thoughts on the subject. He mentioned that the glasses should be able to work as a self-contained unit as well as connect wirelessly to a smartphone via Bluetooth. Nailing down the means of navigation could be critical, and Baden suggested that the display could be controlled by voice commands.
Exactly what kind of information that the glasses will be able to display is another story entirely — Bloomberg reports that Oakley could target athletes with the heads-up technology they have in development, though their smart glasses would probably have to aim for a much broader audience if they ever emerge as a real product.
I’ll admit, the move seems like a strange one coming from a company like Oakley — they know how to make a handsome pair of glasses, but their previous efforts at fusing eyewear and technology haven’t quite made the splash they were hoping for. Putting the underwhelming Thumps aside for a moment, Oakley also introduced a peculiar line of Bluetooth-capable sunglasses a few years back, which I imagine most of us have never seen in the real world.
They certainly seem to be taking this new concept seriously though — a bit of poking around reveals that Oakley filed a patent for a “wearable high resolution audio visual interface” last September.

As a guy who spends 10+ hours a day with a laptop resting on his already unimpressive genitals, this is pretty serious news. Kidding, I can’t have children. Get it? Women just find me so unattractive! I touched a titty one time but it was a friend of my older sister and I think she just felt bad for me. Plus she had this giant f***ing mole on her neck with a FOREST of black hair growing out of it so she wasn’t exactly a fairytale princess herself. Wi-Fi: it’s frying your sperms, homey.
The study, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, collected sperm samples from 29 healthy men, aged 26 to 45. Each of the samples were then separated into two pots.
One set of samples was placed beneath a laptop connected to the internet via Wi-Fi as it downloaded information, while the other set was stored under identical conditions – including temperature – but away from the computer.
Around 25 per cent of the sperm in samples exposed to the laptop stopped swimming compared with 14 per cent of those kept away from the computer.
Similarly around nine per cent of the sperm exposed to the laptop showed DNA damage compared with three per cent in the control samples.
Whatever, I’m tired of caring. Everything is either killing you or destroying your nuts, okay? Especially if it’s fun or you enjoy doing it. Except sex. Sex is actually healthy. What’s wasn’t healthy was the time I was putting the toilet seat down and sitting simultaneously and accidentally crushed my peen between the seat and bowl. IT MADE F***ING SOUNDS. Like Rice Crispies right after you add milk.

Thanks to Ramen, who, of all people, I would trust to know about noodles.
If you get just five spam text messages a day then consider yourselves lucky, as a Chinese mobile user could easily amass at least 30 messages daily, according to Cloudmark. Fortunately, said company has been working with GSMA and various network operators on building an SMS spam reporting system, which should help drastically reduce worldwide cellphone spam. The idea is rather simple: in a multi-country trial that ended last December, participants from AT&T, Bell Mobility, SFR, Sprint, Vodafone, Korea Telecom, and the Korean Internet & Security Agency forwarded suspect spam to “7726,” which is short code for “spam.” Cloudmark’s cloud-based system would then be able to identify and block these messages in the future, be it scams, linkbaits, or just ads from perverse companies. While this sounds like a perfect solution, it’s not entirely clear how much this service would cost the operators, but hey, it’s never too early to start a petition if you need it that badly.
You can have your doubts about when your phone maker will finally get around to delivering an Android 2.3 update (March if you’re with HTC, June if Samsung, 2017 if you’re unfortunate enough to own a Sony Ericsson), but the smartphone dev community doesn’t work that slowly. The guys who build custom ROMs just for the sheer pride of it have already begun work on delivering Gingerbread to owners of the Samsung Galaxy S and HTC EVO 4G and Wildfire. It’s all in the very nascent stages and warnings abound that you should only install these ROMs if you intend to contribute to the development process, but it does give us hope for a consumable new OS in the not so distant future. One thing that does look ready to be gobbled up, however, is Gingerbread’s new software keyboard — you’ll find the download link and installation instructions at the Droid-Life link below, just remember to bring your rooted Android phone along.
Fun fact: Did you know that if you take a tinfoil-covered item from even the hottest oven, you can remove the foil with your bare fingers quite safely? Just don’t touch anything other than the foil. This handy trick works because the foil is so thin it cools almost instantly when you remove it from the oven.
Of course, this doesn’t work with the oven shelves, but if you upgrade them with these neat Silicone Oven Shields, you can toss the oven-mitts away (don’t toss them too far, though, as you’ll need them to get the actual pot out of the oven). They are safe up to 450-degrees, and because silicone is so non-conductive, they stay cool-ish to the touch.
Even if you don’t want to drag the shelves back and-forth with bare-hands, these shields are a good idea. I have lost count of the cigar-shaped burns I have seared into my thumbs and the backs of my hands whilst turning food or just poking in an instant-read thermometer. These shields would have stopped my branding my hands.
Available in kitchen stores like this one for around $10. And one more thing: in the product picture, somebody is cooking a pizza. Shouldn’t it have a stone or metal tray underneath it?

This is adorable: a tiny charcoal BBQ grill using an Altoids Sours tin, two metal computer fan guards, and some sheet metal screws for legs. It looks like it fits one regular-sized briquette. As one of the commentors notes, this is great for marshmallows, but you could also cook a shrimp at a time.
Making it doesn’t require tools more sophisticated than a Dremel – no soldering, no nothing. Release the GeekDads. You could probably bang this thing out and be eating S’Mores before your neighbor’s charcoal grill is hot enough to cook.
Instructables user Vmspionage’s mini-grill was inspired by the earlier eBQ, which uses a full-sized Altoids tin. He also writes that “the propane version is coming soon! ” Now we just need someone to make a MintyBoost-powered electric starter, and we’ll really have something cooking.
