  • The Fun-spiring SF Offices of Tech Company, Chartboost

    Blitz Architecture has developed a new fun office layout for Chartboost, a technology platform that helps mobile game developers find new users and monetize their games, in San Francisco. When moving into a new office space, Chartboost was most interested in taking the opportunity to celebrate what is at the core of their business: video games. As the world’s largest games-only technology platform, Chartboost wanted their San Francisco space to reflect the energy of the gaming world and create a fun, interactive environment that would excite anyone who entered. Blitz stepped up to the challenge and designed a modern ofce that brings the world of games to life. The full Chartboost experience begins after walking up the stairs from entrance to the reception, where an entire wall is dedicated to the “photo op.” Visitors can find their games on display and take pictures with the boxes (although we think the show-stealing, 11-foot-tall dinosaur probably gets some photo love too). The dinosaur, aka “Buster,” has become the Chartboost mascot – they even developed their first in-house mobile game starring the T-Rex. Hanging app boxes and an interactive iPad love wall further celebrate the developers and clients of Chartboost’s products. Blitz reflected more »

  • 38 Ways To Enjoy Coffee [Infographic]

    We have some great news for coffee drinkers! The Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, the top nutritional experts in the US, have lifted their decades-long silence on the subject of coffee and it’s nothing but praise for the beverage: Currently, strong evidence shows that consumption of coffee within the moderate range (3 to 5 cups per day or up to 400 mg/d caffeine) is not associated with increased long-term health risks among healthy individuals. In fact, consistent evidence indicates that coffee consumption is associated with reduced risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in healthy adults. Moreover, moderate evidence shows a protective association between coffee/caffeine intake and risk of Parkinson’s disease. Therefore, moderate coffee consumption can be incorporated into a healthy dietary pattern, along with other healthful behaviors. The bad news is that the majority of Americans are barley drinking two cups per day. If you want to drink three to five cups but you feel regular coffee is just too boring, try one or twenty of these coffee drinks. But be careful, the added calories from sugar and dairy can negate some of the healthful benefits.

  • The Ultimate Winter Commuter Guide to Wearing Brown Boots at Work

  • Don’t Believe The Hype About Android Malware

    Currently trending on social media and shared by frightened old people is a story about Internet security specialists AVG discovering malware on Android phones that mimics the shutdown process then makes calls and takes photos while the phone appears to be off. AVG details how it works and it’s an interesting read, but many websites ran wild with the report and now naive Android users are worried about something that’s a non-story for anyone who’s not a mobile software developer. So why shouldn’t we burn our Android devices and all go out and buy iPhones or Windows Phones? The first clue is that the third paragraph of the AVG report states that 10,000 phones in China have been affected by the malware, spread through Chinese app stores. Later in the report, we learn the malware requires root access. So how could regular Android users outside of China end up with the malware? David B.’s sensible comment on Mashable’s article breaks it down: You REALLY have to go out of your way to get this malware on your phone. For anyone outside of China, this means you have to do the following: 1. Enable Unknown Sources. 2. Install third party Chinese more »

  • Front of Jeep Creates a Wild Freestanding Ice Sculpture in North Carolina

    “The ice sculpture was discovered in the visitor’s parking lot at Vidant Medical Center Tuesday afternoon. WITN received two different photos from viewers, one picture taken from the front and another looking the other direction. One of the photo-takers’ theory is that the Jeep owner left their vehicle running, warming up the engine. The imprint was then left after they backed out of the parking space. The ice was attached to the curb. We’re not sure how long it stayed around, but it’s pretty cool.”  

  • The 2015 Oscar Nominees Were Serious Dorks Before They Became Famous

    In case you hadn’t heard, the Oscars are this weekend.

Priceless. Watch the incredible video on Brobible.com

  • Pop Culture Characters Invade Boring Old Paintings

    Dave Pollot is one of those rare people who can excel at endeavors both critical and creative. In other words, we hate him. But because of what he creates, we can’t help but love him, too. While working full time as a software developer, Dave also regularly visits thrift shops in search of boring old landscapes that cover the walls of the homes inhabited by the type of person who lies dead in their kitchen for three weeks before anyone finds them, their faces half-eaten by their dozens of cats. Dave takes these awful paintings and with the addition of a can of Duff Beer, a Tie Fighter, or some other pop culture icon, transforms them into beautiful works of art that someone with a close family and zero cats would proudly hang on their living room wall. You can check out more paintings at Dave Pollot Art and purchase your favorites at Etsy.
