**1/2 (out of four) If you get excited at the use of phrases like “graphical user interface,” “Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview” will likely feel like a fantastic slab of previously unseen geek porn. For others, this 70-minute interview with the late billionaire, conducted in 1995 so a small snippet could be used for a PBS miniseries entitled “Triumph of the Nerds,” will combine a significant amount of subjectively dull computer speak with anecdotes and philosophies that register as brilliantly...

**1/2 (out of four) No, “Jobs” doesn't reach the heights of “The Social Network.” Few movies do. Yet this biopic delivers a powerful lesson via an OK movie: That people can change the world if they don't let others stand in their way. “Jobs” traces Apple founder Steve Jobs' (Ashton Kutcher) life from his college-aged days as an ambitious, brilliant dropout to the late-'90s era when he returned to the company that previously forced him out. At first, the casting seems questionable; Kutcher's good looks don't exactly scream “socially awkward computer whiz,” and when Jobs...

While I certainly consider myself a pretty tech-“hep” individual, I usually refrain from writing about the latest gadgets, gizmos, and internet trends because let's face it, there's barely any readership for that kind of thing. After all, what kind of jerks are going to argue about the silly differences between cellular phones? Having said that, I recently discarded my Samsung “slidey-phone” for an iPhone. Suspect punctuation aside, I have to say, this iPhone is quite remarkable.

The demented horror flick, “The Human Centipede,” was just ripe for a “South Park” treatment, but I didn't see this coming. In director Tom Six's film, a crazy German scientist sews together three people to form a “human centipede.” In the 15th season premiere of “South Park,” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have stitched (get it?!) the twisted 2010 tale to Apple creator Steve Jobs, who introduces a "new product that will once again revolutionize the way we use our phones and tablet devices": the HumancentiPad.

Even if you don't know Steve Jobs from Steve Wozniak, you're likely going to laugh your butt off watching "Silicon Valley" ( 9 p.m. Sunday, HBO; 3.5 stars out of 4 ). Co-created by Mike Judge, the show pokes fun at every aspect of the tech mecca of Silicon Valley. No one is spared, from Google-like companies to pretentious start-ups to investors, hackers and billionaire tech bosses who constantly preach that their products are "making the world a better place. " It's hilariously specific, but surprisingly relatable to a wide audience.

Are you lonely? Do you have no friends? Are you sitting at home every Friday night watching other people have fun - and finding evidence of it in your hallway the next morning? Well, suffer no more of these solo nights staying in. I'm pleased to tell you that you do have friends - lots of them - and they can all be ordered on Amazon or checked out from your local library. Yes, those heavy things that you used to lug around in your backpack in high school are not only making a comeback, but they could also have a significant impact on your social life.

Guess I was totally wrong. When I heard the iPhone 5 had racked up millions of preorders in the first 24 hours and lines were forming outside of some Apple stores a week before Friday's launch, I half expected to read that it was magic. But I scoured the features list and unfortunately, no, the iPhone 5 won't grant you the power of flight, decode your pets' languages (they all really just constantly say "feed me" anyway) or persuade that cute bartender to give you his/her phone number.

Stuck in the middle of an advertising world dominated by banner ads and pop-ups, it's hard to image a time when most advertisements were hand painted on brick walls and shop windows.  Thirty years ago, a man with a paintbrush and a bit of know-how could make himself a decent living. But over the last three decades, advances in technology have made costly and time consuming hand painted signs all but obsolete. Thus, sign painters slowly began...

A New York Times blog surfaced last week featuring a 20-year-old man named Dale J. Stephens who has not gone to go college. Stephens presented five arguments contradicting all of the main reasons people go to college, and how one does not have to go to college to get the same experiences. We polled RedEye staffers to see where they stood on the argument, asking "Is college worth it?" YES Sure, you can skip college and gain some "real world experience" instead, but doesn't it look better to fill out both the "Education" and "Past Experience" sections on a resume?
