The way I see it, high-end audio is all about the pursuit of excellence, and Audeze headphones exemplify that philosophy. Now sure, most headphone manufacturers try to make the best products they can, but mass-market brands have to satisfy a broad range of tastes, load on features like Bluetooth and phone controls that don't enhance sound quality, and design their products within real-world price constraints. Audeze engineers focus on doing whatever it takes to make the world's best-sounding headphones, and the results speak for themselves.

NASA wants to grow plants on the moon.
More specifically, it's planning to plant a vegetable garden there to demonstrate that a moon garden is a feasible way of supplementing astronauts' meals. The space agency has announced that by 2015, it will be sending up various plants -- including turnips, Arabidopsis (a type of cress), and basil -- in what it is calling "the first life sciences experiment on another world."
The agency's not just planning to dig some holes, bury the seeds, and hope for the best, though. The plants will be grown in a … Read more
The Dock in OS X serves as a launcher for commonly-accessed programs, as well as folders and documents that you drag there, and as an indicator of running programs. In addition, it holds the trash and the smiling Finder icon since this program as the default file browser is not usually quit.
Since the Dock is regularly accessed, it is always present in some form on the edge of the screen; however, while Apple by default places it at the bottom of your display, there are several options available to you for its position.
The first options are those Apple … Read more
That would be Intel's botched attempt at building a tablet -- which nearly came out roughly a decade before Apple unveiled its first iPad. The device, which was dubbed Intel Pad, or IPAD for short, could browse the Internet, play music and videos, and even act as a digital picture frame.
Unfortunately, the operative word is nearly, as the IPAD was scrapped before consumers could get their hands on it. It's just one of … Read more

As the saying goes, the third time's a charm.
The conditions were perfect, wind was down, temperatures were moderate, and SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket launch out of Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station was a success on Tuesday.
"Mission confirmed," announced ground control once the rocket was safely past Earth's atmosphere. Roughly 45 minutes after launch, the rocket had finished safely putting its satellite into orbit.
Motorola Mobility was forced to postpone its Cyber Monday Moto X deal after perspective shoppers overwhelmed the purchase page.
The handset maker planned to offer a limited number of online shoppers the opportunity to purchase the new smartphone off-contract at a $150 discount. But the crush of consumers quickly rendered the MotoMaker customization site largely unusable, preventing many shoppers from taking advantage of the deal.
Motorola Chief Executive Dennis Woodside apologized for the outage:
