The Combat SUV.

The T-98 Combat SUV. Russian, heavily armoured, luxurious, very fast and $138,000 for the base model. If you’re so unpopular that you need to scoot around town in one of these, perhaps you should stay in and watch telly a little more often?  The 8.1 litre 340 bhp Vortec V8 can push the T-98 along at over 180 km/h, and in addition to sumptuous leather and woodgrain fittings, you can order almost any level of active safety feature, from gun ports to a full…

ShotSpotter. Detect and locate gunfire in your urban area – now with video integration. Ay yi yi!  ShotSpotter’s gunshot location technology is based on acoustic detection of muzzle blast and, depending on the circumstances, the sound of the projectile while it travels. Unlike optical (muzzle flash) detection techniques, acoustic techniques do not require the shooter to be located in the field of view of a sensor. An acoustic system can cover a much larger area than an optical system and…

Juicy Fruit Blog.

The Juicy Fruit Blog. Will someone please take that marketing person outside and put them out of their misery? Thank you.  That was me today. I was the thing that didn’t belong. But I don’t care. I want that Juicy Fruit more today than ever. Who knew this pack of Juicy Fruit would take me to so many places? Man it scares me to think where I’ll end up next…

Open Source spies.

Jeepers, if it wasn’t for the URL you’d swear that this was a spoof. But it ain’t. For some bizarre reason the spies at MI6 have suddenly decided they’ve got to have an Official Secret Intelligence Service website. Huh? That’s the strangest definition of secret I’ve ever heard. What next, Open Source spooks operating undercover and under a GPL (graft, probe, lie) license?  Welcome to the official website of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS). As Britain’s secret service, SIS provides the…

Camera phones as scanners.

Camera phones as scanners? So what’s the big deal? Modern digital cameras nowadays can do this very easily. Just snap a page at 5 megapixel resolution and what do you get? A scanned image of the page. Pfaff!  As a page is being scanned the OCR software takes dozens of still images of the page and effectively merges them together using the outline of the page as a reference guide. The software can also detect the curvature of the page…

Nu Ride, for nubiles.

Why are they smiling? Because they’re taking apparently taking advantage of NuRide, a strangely unimpressive service to encourage ride sharing where it’s so desperately needed. Why unimpressive, you ask, with a Skinny Decaf Latte en route to your lips. Well the rewards suck, for starters. A $25.00 gift voucher to TGI Fridays? For sharing your 70 minute ride with a corpulent toothbrush salesman from Idaho? Hmm….   NuRiding is similar to airline travel but for your car. You plan your trips online and…

Counterfeit camcorders.

Hmm..just received warning from Sony PR that there are fake Sony Handycam camcorders popping up for sale on eBay and elsewhere at the moment. The company is trying to track them down, but in the meantime if you happen to see one that’s a bit too cheap, well….caveat emptor, eh?

Teen tracking.

Teen Tracking. Like the rabid, scurvied dogs they are, teens are now open season to all-comers. Got one lurking in your garage? Then make sure you keep tabs on the troublesome tyke with the Discrete Wireless Teen Tracking GPS Vehicle System. Make the little scum wish they’d never been born. At least not in your family anyway. Good grief!  “Using our system, parents can be immediately notified, by text message, blackberry, or email, if their teen does something they shouldn’t….
