SExpand I like my hipster PDA better. In fact, what I would totally do if I didn't love my Q is have a cheap texting dumbphone and a newer unactivated smartphone, either a Windows Phone or Blackberry, to use as a PDA alongside a dumbphone. In fact, I'd love to do that now even with my Q, but I think it may be awkward since I use my Q for all calendar needs, notes, tasks, etc. now. In that case, I'd end up using the newer smartphone more as a media device than a PDA. Oh and to stay relevant... cool article!

3D Printers: Make Whatever You Want On most weekends, 14-year-old Riley Lewis and a few of his eighth grade friends gather at his house in Santa Clara, Calif. The group of about five, depending on who’s around, grab some chips and bean dip and repair to the garage, where Riley and his dad have created something of a state-of-the-art manufacturing hub. The boys can pretty much fabricate anything they can dream up on a machine called the RapMan. As the hours tick by, they cover tables with their creations: rockets and guitar picks and cutlery.

How to Turn Your Computer into a Retro Game Arcade While I've never heard the term "freezes" for save states, they are a very useful feature. However, a word of caution — be careful to not overuse them. They can really cheapen a game if you use them too much. You start out just using them to make saving and loading a little bit faster, but before you know it, you're saving in times you have no business saving, like in the middle of a long RPG battle, just redoing any mistake you make.
