Apple Debuts Apple Store 2.0, A Revision For Its Retail Locations

It is nearly 10 years since the first Apple Store opened, so according to much rumor and speculation, Apple was planning something special for the anniversary. Turns out it is a smart move: Using the iPad 2 as an information device rather than numerous placards and stands for other Apple products (including specs, pricing, features, etc.), as well as calling an Apple Specialist to your aid without even going near the employee and kindly asking for help. It’s an amazing addition with a smart execution, as every iPad 2 is enclosed with a thick, sold layer of protection by what seems to be plastic. Via: 9to5Mac

This Aston Martin V12 Zagato Is So Awesome Looking It Had To Be Here

I’m not a car blogger. I’m a tech blogger. But I like amazing cars and I like TopGear (heck, they follow me on Twitter). But you know what? It wouldn’t hurt to post such an awesome-looking hand-built marvel like the Aston Martin V12 Zagato. It looks so cool. Its specs are a 6.0-litre V12 510bhp engine, a steel roll cage, front and rear double wishbone suspension with fully adjustable Multimatic DSSV Dampers, and a 120ltr endurance racing fuel tank which will be tested at the Nürburgring in Germany ahead of the famous 24 hour race coming in June.

Honeycomb Has A Secret Gingerbread UI When Pixel Density Is Changed

Fun fact: By changing the PPI (pixel-density) to higher than 170 or so to emulate a smaller screen, you can find that an Android 3.x device will change the default UI to that of a stock (read: Vanilla) Gingerbread UI. It can be done via the LCDDensity for Root app as demonstrated in the video after the break, and if rolled back to 160 pixels-per-inch, reverts back to the default Honeycomb UI. Via: Pocketables
