Weaponized Object Sculptures by Maskull Lasserre

Canadian artist Maskull Lasserre (see previously) created these menacing weaponized object sculptures back in 2013. The sculptures are inspired by his experiences in Afghanistan while taking part in the Canadian Forces Artists Program in 2010. The series includes “Overture,” a playable violin on a machine gun-style armored tripod, and “SAFE,” a thoroughly intimidating “up-armored” 1940s-era safe that contains a seat for a single occupant.

Six Colors, A New Site by Former Macworld Lead Editor Jason Snell Providing Daily Coverage of Apple

Six Colors

Six Colors is a new site by former Macworld lead editor Jason Snell — where he served for over a decade — that focuses on coverage of Apple as well as other technology companies. The name of the site traces back to an old saying.

Back in the olden days, Apple’s logo featured a rainbow of six colors. Longtime Apple fans and employees used to say that if you cut them, they would “bleed six colors.”
