Apps have gotten away from the practical lately and seem to be more geared to entertainment, but the CINQ app brings some much needed photo sharing practicality. CINQ works by syncing your iphone photos with your computer. Plugging your phone into your laptop is just too much of a pain in the ass with the instant gratification we need on everything. Here’s how it works in a nutshell, you register with Cinq, DL the app to your phone and computer and then you communicate photos back and forth between computer and phone at will. Everything can also link up to the Facebook account. The crew at Metacafe.com give a review in the video below.
The Samuel Adams Barrel Room Collection is composed of three unique beers that share a common background of aging in oak barrels that originally did time storing brandy in a previous life. Outside of that common ground though, the American Kriek, New World Tripel, and Stony Brook Red brews are each distinct specialty beers. The 7% ABV American Kriek has been aged in slightly sweet and slighty tart Balaton cherries and was the first of the series to launch. The New World Tripel is much stronger in terms of ABV weighing in at 10%, and its flavor profile is dominated by notes of spice and tropical fruits. Finally, the Stony Brook Red is a Belgian style ale that sits in the middle at 9% ABV in terms of strength and is characterized by toasted oat hints and a tartness from rich, malty yeast. Though they’re certainly not an everyday type of brew, if you’re a fan of the Boston Beer company’s other concoctions (generic or otherwise), consider picking up one or the entire series of these 750ml bottles as a well-earned treat for the holidays.
So yesterday I got the new facebook profile and cut up my face to pretty much take up the whole screen and everyone was asking me how I did it, usually I would ignore such requests and leave them thinking I was some kind of artistic genius but in actuality I stole the idea off the internet like pretty much everything else I do. It all started with French artist Alexandre Oudin (seen above), who decided to maximize the new facebook layout. I am sensing this is going to become a big hit with facebook users so jump on the train before it becomes old news. For anyone who wants to copy his style, all you have to do is block the other photos you’re tagged in and upload photos to your profile pictures album that are the exact size (yes, down to the pixel) of the display on Facebook and voilà!
The 5 little ones: 97 x 68 pixels
The big one: 180 x 532 pixels

In a mobile industry shrouded in secrecy and lawsuits, where every major player is always in the process of suing or being sued by their competitors for patent violations and intellectual property fraud, it’s nice to find an ‘open’ and collaborative design project amongst the walled gardens.
As part of Mozilla Labs’ Concept Series, the Open Web Concept Phone project received an intriguing submission from product designer Billy May. After rounds of extensive community feedback and suggestions, Billy has finished his exploration of ‘Seabird’ and what the mobile device of the future might look like.

I’ve always wanted to brew or make my own alcohol, but for some reason filling up a bath tub with potatoes and whatever else you need to make moonshine doesn’t fly to well. Besides that and the weeks for it to ferment tends to be a little annoying and to be honest I’m not that big of an alcoholic to go through that song and dance. That is where Spike Your Juice comes in. Simply grab yourself a 64 oz. bottle of juice, dump in one of the six included yeast packets, pop on the airlock, and wait. In 48 hours or so, you’ll have your own homemade hooch with an alcohol content of up to 14 percent. I can’t wait to do this to the community orange juice in my office and have my co-workers completely clueless on why they are shitfaced. The best thing is a package of 6 packets will only run you $9.99 and you can buy it here, merry drinking.
Ever wake up with a burning pee or enormous growth on your lip but don’t feel like going to the doctor because you’re too hungover to remember the disease infested partner you smashed hips with last night. Well your troubles may soon be over. The eSTI2 project managed by Tariq Sadiq from St. Georges University in London just got a 6.5 million dolllar grant to develop chips that can test saliva, urine or blood for STDs and HIV. No need to spit and pee on your precious Iphone, you would do it on the chip which would plug into the phone, the app on the phone would process the results. At least thats the idea. The other idea is that these would be widely available at pharmacies and vending machines. This won’t go to market for another 7-10 years at least, so keep wrapping it up and heading to the doctor in the meantime and remember shaving your pubes doesn’t cure crabs. Happy swinging!
This is for sure one of the cooler products we’ve featured here on zoot. ThatsMyFace.com sells wearable masks that look like realistic human faces, and they are as creepy as you would think. Quality photos of someone’s face and profile is all you need to create a clever mask for Halloween next year, or better yet to rob banks and scare your friends.. As an added bonus, customers can modify the ethnicity, gender, and age of the face on the mask, so it would be pretty awesome if me, a 25 year old white guy, had a mask created converting me to a 80 year old black man. These bad boys will set you back $299 so they aren’t cheap, but they kick ass. You can get yours here.
Below is an awesome and hilarious video of the mask in action and how awesome it would be to have one, check it out after the jump.
