Are you ready to get “nerd strong?” A new gym open in LA is catering specifically to those of us in the geek communities.
It’s called Nerdstrong, and it thinks it’s time for you to stop being the scruffy-looking nerf herder.
Many of the workouts are built around fantasy, sci-fi, and superhero adventures as a way of making exercising more fun. You may be kicking down dungeon doors, raiding temples, joining the Avengers, fighting zombies, or even taking on Game of Thrones’ the Mountain in combat.
My favorite, though, is battling Coily alongside Q*bert. That is a fairly obscure idea for a workout routine. Although, I imagine all that jumping would be good exercise.

A few hours back, Qualcomm revealed a more details about its upcoming flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 820. The company particularly stressed on performance and efficiency in this new chip. Also, the chip is reportedly made with high-end performance and slim smartphone design in mind.
The cores inside the chipset is built for heterogeneous computing. This means that the chip will be able to combine different functional cores of the entire system including GPU, CPU and DSP cores to achieve high-end performance and efficiency at the same time. Usually, one or two cores are dedicated for a task, but Qualcomm believes heterogeneous computing is the right way to tackle all tasks.
Qualcomm has reportedly used eight custom Kryo cores inside the Snapdragon 820. In case you remember, the Snapdragon 800 series chips used the custom Krait CPUs. The Kryo cores are built on the latest 14nm FinFET technology which maximizes power efficiency. These cores are clocked at 2.2GHz which the company claims will deliver up to 2 times the performance. Even the efficiency increases up to 2x times as compared to Snapdragon 810. The Kryo CPU along with Adreno 530 GPU and Hexagon 680 DSP will make sure that the chip performs better than most other SoCs in the market.
While we wait for the official launch of the Snapdragon 820 inside a smartphone, today, the chip was reportedly spotted on AnTuTu with a score of 83,774 points! That’s pretty impressive considering other chips, even the Exynos 7420 find it hard to cross the 70,000 mark. However, the configuration shows that the phone had a FHD 1080p resolution, so if the resolution is bumped up to 2K we may see the score drop down a bit.
Still, if the device, code named Green Orange X1 Pro does feature MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 chipset, —> Read More

Tools and Toys: Fast-forward to today. Final Fantasy VII is now available for iPhone and iPad, which seems crazy to me. Its a direct port of the PC game rather than the Playstation version, but the story is the same. How could I resist?

Technically Incorrect: The great director and producer foresees a time when we’re just tired of Superman and Batman.
Over the weekend, Kanye West took control of the mic for a good 11 minutes during MTV’s annual VMA awards ceremony. During the course of a sprawling speech, which was at times endearing, the controversial and outspoken rapper-producer touched on all sorts of topics before casually mentioning his plans to run for President in 2016. And oh yes, did we mention that West admittedly “rolled up a little something” before the awards show to “knock the edge off”?
Suffice it to say, if you haven’t yet seen West’s speech in its entirety, it’s well worth checking out.
