Look, tech is great, but we need our hands free to do other things. That's why this kid just inspired all of us to make sure we only buy glass tables from now on. 

Be like this kid and get more done, by freeing up your hands. With his hands free, he can do such things as sign international peace treaties, feed the poor, or just rest them on his stomach. The possibilities are endless as long as they don't require getting up.

Ratings couldn't be any higher.

When ESPN cut back from commercial during a college football game last night, they caught  broadcaster and former player Bill Walton going on about marijuana legalization, with others in the room cheering him on, saying “get ‘em, Bill.” As if to make this clip even better, he’s also dressed in a full Uncle Sam garb, asking Obama to free anyone who was arrested for marijuana-related crimes.

It’s pretty awesome. Though, this isn’t the first time Bill Walton has let his pot politics known. He’s criticized marijuana laws on ESPN2 before, as well.

But I’ll tell you one guy who didn’t find it awesome or “cool.” This guy:

The iPhone’s multi-touch display is one of the phone’s greatest innovations. But wouldn’t you know it, Steve Jobs and the team almost went in a different, stupider direction.

The iPhone almost had a click wheel like the iPod. But it wasn't a physical click wheel, it was a digital one. The video above from Apple leaker Sonny Dickson shows the click wheel from “Acorn OS,” which Mashable describes as, “an iPod-based interface for the iPhone that Apple was working on before deciding to go with the now-ubiquitous icon-based interface.”

Apparently, Apple had two teams working on the iPhone’s operating system, one that was led by Tony Fadell, the “father of the iPod,” and other by Scott Forstall, who was the Vice President of iOS software before leaving because everyone hated Maps. Fadell was working on this click wheel version based on the success of the iPod.

Obviously, “turning it into to a rotary phones from the 60s,” as Fadell puts it, wasn’t the way to go.

Check out the video and imagine a reality where you absolutely hate your iPhone.
