OS Xbox Pro: An Awesome Computer Mod
By Adam on November 29, 2009
If you’re a computer hardware geek, you’re going to love this mod. In a nutshell, the guy needed to build a Mac computer for work purposes, disliked Macs, so he built himself a Mac Pro Hackintosh…housed in an Xbox case.

Trailer for Collapse
By Adam on November 18, 2009
Check out the trailer for Collapse, a documentary that pinpoints how we’re on a precarious precipice and it’s up to us whether we fall or stand. There’s a few things I love about this video:
- Amazing disintegrating fonts.
- It’s a a “horror documentary”.
- Michael Ruppert – he’s like a film noir superhero journalist.
- “It’s not that Bernie Madoff was a pyramid scheme, the whole economy is a pyramid scheme” [a great quote]

One Reason the iPhone Will Be Disrupted
By Adam on October 26, 2009

A New Name for an Old Blog
By Adam on September 28, 2009
If you look closely, you’ll spot that I’ve retitled this blog. It’s the third title in the history of this site and in my opinion the best one yet. What once was Adam Pieniazek, and then was Prose of a Pol, is now: Dot Boston Prose of a Pol was always a bit clunky. Sure […]
