Constantly worried about the Zombie Apocalypse?  Me too, although I already know where I would spend my last hours, going out in style at Old Town ala Shaun and Ed, but you maybe more focused on, you know, surviving.  Enter Map of the Dead, your go to source for Zombie preparation.  Red areas denote high population centers where you are most likely to encounter walkers, where darker areas are mainly parks and wilderness which could present zombie free safe havens.  Also included are tactical locations, such as hospitals, gun shops, and of course bars.  
For those of you who believe that Zombies will not bring the end to mankind but put your faith in more realistic disasters, Wired points out that there are practical uses as well:

"with the Doejo maps, you can better plan for the coming zombie apocalypse, and even other natural disasters. At Gadget Lab, we scanned not only our local San Francisco environs, but also Chicago and New York City to determine safe zones should the worst come to pass."

So should you be concerned with earthquakes, hurricanes, asteroids, floods, random uprisings, or any other disaster, natural or otherwise, Map of the Dead is a fun and useful tool to aid in your survival.

Instagram has been avalible on the IOS market for a long time, but has never topped the app charts… until now.  All it took was selling out to Facebook.  Lesson learned, sell out kids.

Meet Wemo, Belkin’s new “Home Automation” system.  Comprised of two pieces of hardware, the backbone of the system the home control switch, and the motion sensor, as well as a free mobile app, Belkin gives the promise of complete control of your home’s functions utilizing your wi-fi network.  
From Belkin:

“Belkin’s new WeMo system is home automation made easy. It’s completely modular, so you can control as much or as little of your home as you like. Turn on a light in another room, or turn it off from across town. Put your house on a schedule—living room lights go on in the evening, kids’ TV goes off at bedtime. You can check to make sure you turned the iron off, after you’ve already left the house. Have a fan go on before you get home. WeMo can even guard the front door.  WeMo is your home at your fingertips.”

The price point seems promising, $49.99 for the control switch, and $59.99 for the motion sensor.  Per Belkin’s website, it seems as if a baby monitor and garage door opener are on their way.  Let me just say, that I could not want this more.
