You know you do it – you play games on your phone all the time while waiting for the train/bus/tram, while waiting for the doctor’s appointment, while waiting for your lame friend who is never on time. And, of course, smartphones have only made the games more exciting, with high frame rates and impressive graphics for such small screens. And if you’re a gambler, then accessing casino games from your pocket is a real plus of the internet-enabled smartphones too. The interface is actually really well-suited to casino games, since you can take your time choosing where you’ll place your bets and from just the touch of a finger place your bets.
If you’re a gambler, you’re going to want to be getting the full experience when you’re playing from your pocket. So if you’re looking to upgrade to a new smartphone to play, which phones are suited to doing a little gambling a la phone?
Top of the list is probably the Apple iPhone 5. It’s the latest and most powerful phone from Apple and is highly standardised, meaning it’s pretty difficult to lose the aesthetic quality of the game design. The CPU runs at 1.3 GHz, which ensures gameplay runs smoothly and since it’s the latest model, probably going to give you a bit of longevity. As much longevity as you get from smartphones these days anyway.
But if you’re a Mac-hater or simply a Google-lover, then Android isn’t necessarily a completely inferior option. You’ve just got to be careful which Android phone you buy. If you buy something a bit more obscure, you might end up with gameplay that’s a little erratic and not as enjoyable since it wasn’t specifically designed for that phone. However, the HTC One is probably a good choice – it’s actually more powerful than the iPhone 5 with a 1.7GHz quad core processor, and is likely to have the same longevity offered by an iPhone 5, if not a greater one. The downside is simply the Android vs. iOS thing – with iOS, you have apps designed specifically for the one and only handset. Android has to account for other shapes and sizes.
These are probably the top two phones that you’d want to be playing Gaming Club mobile casino games on, but there are of course other (cheaper) options that you should look into. The best advice is to talk to the customer reps at the store. Tell them what you’re looking for – that you’re wanting to play casino games in addition to checking your emails yada yada – and they’ll recommend a few models.

If there were ever a nerdy lesbian device, it would be the clap-off bra.
Just as it sounds, this is, indeed, a bra that you can remove simply by clapping your hands.
Wondering if this is nerdy enough for Gay Geek? Well you need to check out the Instructables post on how to make this. Just take a look at this list of things that you will need to make this work:
A front opening strapless under-wire bra
Small nut and bolt
(x2) Prototype circuit boards
An Arduino (w/ATMEGA168 DIP chip)
28 pin socket
(x2) 22pF capacitors
(x2) 0.1uF capacitors
2N3904 NPN transistor
7805 voltage regulator
5V SPST relay
5V DPDT relay
An electret microphone
9V battery connector
A spare USB cable
1″ shrink tube
A small grommet
Double stick tape
Ribbons and frills
Tools of various sorts
This thing requires some seriously hardcore geek work to get it going – including some soldering, sewing and programming!
So we got any geeky lesbian, bisexual or trans electrician nerds in the house ready to create the easiest bra to take off ever?
SHUTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY.
No longer will you have to wave around that plastic Harry Potter wand you bought for a ridiculous amount of money but does absolutely nothing and pretend you’re actually a Timelord masquerading as a wizard at Hogwarts to stop the aliens that are trying to harness magic in order to take over London.
No more, because now your can wave your sonic screwdriver about and not just pretend things are happening, but actually get things to happen on your TV.
The new Sonic Screwdriver is a gesture-based universal remote control that uses infrared (IR) to control entertainment systems including TVs, iPod docks and DVD/Blu-ray players. With advanced gesture recognition technology, up to thirty-nine remote control codes can be stored in the Sonic Screwdriver.
It was actually released in August 2012 but I hadn’t heard about it. Till now.
So I say again, SHUTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

So remember how pizza can prevent cancer? Well, in further proof that science loves us and wants us to be happy, NASA has been funding a 3D food printer, and the first item on the menu is everybody’s favourite flat round thing.
This contraption, which appears to run on some kind of science, works by combining cartridges filled with the basic building blocks of food, eg. basic powders and oils. The long life-spans of the cartridges means they are suited for space travel. Like the categories of pizza and astronaut weren’t already cool enough on their own.
Here’s a video which gives a brief explanation:
I, for one, am excited about the possibilities of this technology and its potential to put pizza in our faces at any time – even on Mars. Although no one appears to be talking about using this marvelous pizza machine for, oh, I don’t know, ending world hunger, or something. Pizza for astronauts is certainly a worthy cause, but getting basic protein to areas affected by famine? Apparently not.

Attention all Med, Bio and Path students! There is a new iPhone 4,4S and 5 app/photoadaptor that allows you to take pictures of what you see through optical instruments.
This app is called Magnifi and it can be used through binoculars, microscopes, telescopes and other things with an eye piece. Pretty neat, huh?
What you do is slide on the case and the adaptor then you begin taking photos.
However cool this maybe, what isnt so awesome is the price. It is $79.99 If you work for a company or an organisation in any of these fields, I guess you could always put it under company expenses xD
