20 Rare Photos Of Steve Jobs That You Probably Haven’t Seen Yet

I entered into the world of blogging in late 2007. I’ve seen ups and downs in my journey specially when recession hit the market and turned things upside down for everyone. The only thing that kept me going was the fact that I loved what I did. A big credit for that goes to Steve Jobs who once inspired me during his Stanford University speech in 2005. He said “You have got to find what you love. The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” As a tribute to this great man we have gathered a list of 20 rare photos of Jobs that you probably haven’t seen yet.

TopSpeed’s 50 Coolest Cars Ever

This is the ultimate bar room and barbecue debate that has been raging on for years and will no doubt persist for years to come. What makes a car cool? Is it cutting edge technology, timeless and sexy good looks, or ultra high performance? We think it’s all of those features and then some. In addition to a combination of those factors, we’d like to think that a cool car can be defined as something that has influenced our attitude and thinking towards how we perceive what a car is and stands for. Some of them have an intangible quality that has captivated our hearts and minds. Here then is our Top 50 coolest cars of all time. This is obviously a very subjective and contentious topic so feel free to leave your comments, criticisms, and additions at the bottom of the page.

11 Commercials for Defunct '90s Food and Drinks

Back in the 90s, you could buy any of these things. You could get them all at the same time if you wanted. Now you can’t get any of these products in stores, but you can shell out too much cash for a 16-year-old bottle of Orbitz on eBay.

10 Nerd Properties That Should Get Porn Parodies

Oh thank you, planet Earth, for evolving humanity to the point where we have porn based on Batman, Star Trek, and Avatar. Completely legal (if you're over 18) porn movies that don't have to have a silly knock-off name (Sex Wars, The Humped Back of Nude Dames, and Harry Palmer and the Sorcerer's Bone) are long gone, and the man who opened the door for us is director Axel Braun, and his stunningly true-to-the-original porn version of the '60s Batman TV series. We happened to Axel about some of his upcoming projects the other day (his porno Spider-Man is starring Electro!), as well as a few of his dream projects -- other nerd properties he'd love to make porn parodies of. It inspired me to put together a Topless Robot wishlist of my own! Here's 10 comics, cartoons, movies and more that would be worth the stigma carrying around of a plain brown wrapper in the mail (although thanks to the internet, no one has to do that anymore).

8 College Degrees That Will Earn Your Money Back

As the cost of education continues to skyrocket and job prospects remain less than robust in a tough economy, the answer to the question, "What are you majoring in?" seems more important than ever. There’s no getting around it. Education is expensive. A four-year degree at a public university costs, on average, $37,343, while an education at a private school will set you back $121,930. While statistics show that a college degree will undoubtedly open doors and increase your earning potential, you need to choose your degree carefully to ensure you’re making a wise investment.

5 Innovations Call of Duty Gave the World

he Call of Duty series has been around for quite awhile now, but it really exploded onto a larger stage with the release of Infinity Ward's Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Many of the first-person shooter genre's greatest innovations came out of that game or were at least beautifully refined by it. With the big Modern Warfare 3 vs. Battlefield 3 showdown bearing down on us, we thought it would be a good idea to explore some of the elements introduced by each series that even now continue to create ripples in the realm of FPS games.

The 5 Manliest Teams, Pre-Expendables

As you know, The Expendables is coming on August 13th, and promises to create a testosterone explosion the likes of which have been little seen on this earth. It has a sample from each star in the Zodiac of manliness, and would seem unstoppable. And, yet, there are some teams which are almost indescribably manly, that cause young boys to suddenly burst with muscles and chest hair, and women to swoon in a three mile radius from the sheer chest-thumping testosterone.

10 Things to Consider Before Using Shipping Containers For Your Project

Modern day pioneer John Wells is doing some interesting work in Alpine, Texas. On his desert swath in The Field Lab, which is also referred to as The Southwest Texas Alternative Energy and Sustainable Living Field Laboratory, Wells is living off the grid and building an interesting live/work space of shipping containers. A couple years ago, he built a tiny house, which is powered by 270 watts of solar and four 100-watt small wind turbines. Now, Wells’ current project is the construction of a live/work space made from four 20-foot shipping containers. Wells hopes to finish his 1,600 square-foot space for less than $20,000 and has some helpful pointers for others looking to take on a container project.

10 Unintentionally Hilarious 80’s Action Movie Villains

As if 80s action movies aren’t funny enough. When you actually break them down piece by piece you can appreciate how truly humorous they are. From the ridiculous plots (one man taking on an entire army is the plot of at least 5 of these types of films) to amazingly cheezy one liners, to sex scenes that are just stupid, 80s action movies rule. Another great element from these flicks? Clearly it’s the villain. And as funny as the plots are, the villains give these movies that extra spice needed to put it over the unintentional humor top. Here are 10 unintentionally hilarious 80s action movie villians

6 Horror Movie Villains Don't Belong In Jail ?

Law enforcement, to say nothing of physics, is usually powerless in a horror movie. As the supernatural bad guy kills its way through the cast, the police turn out to be unreliable assholes. In a world where horror villains could be brought to justice, most of them would end up in jail or in an insane asylum. Hell, many horror villains have escaped from jail or an insane asylum, and society would put them back there if it could. Most, but not all. Everybody is entitled to due process, everybody is entitled to their day in court. Some horror villains have violated no laws. Some horror villains deserve their freedom. I'd like to honor these law abiding bad guys, in order from absolutely least culpable to villains who probably would need to hire Alan Dershowitz just to make sure that their rights were protected.
