Right next to Hollywood, UCLA is known for being the perfect filming location for any University scenes. Most movies pretending to be at Princeton, Harvard, or Yale are actually filmed at UCLA! Here are the top 10 movies and TV shows filmed at UCLA!
Jobs (2013) – movie about Steve Jobs that stars Ashton Kutcher. Even though the college where Jobs dropped out of was supposed to be Reed College, the Jobs movie was filmed at UCLA in front of Royce and Powell library!
Angels & Demons (2009) – Dan Brown’s Robert Langdon solves a Vatican mystery
The House Bunny (2008) – A playboy bunny (Anna Faris) joins a sorority at UCLA
Californication (TV series) – Hank Moody teaches at UCLA!
Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003) – Elle Woods is back in pink to ban animal testing.
Old School (2003) – A few friends (with Will Ferrell!) start up a fraternity near their college.
Legally Blonde (2001) – Elle Woods goes to Harvard (actually filmed at UCLA!) to become a lawyer
Erin Brockovich (2000) – A mother takes on a water company that pollutes the water supply and kills people.
House M.D. (TV series) – Outdoor scenes usually filmed at UCLA!
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (TV series) – also filmed at UCLA
The Nutty Professor (1996) – filmed at UCLA!

Anyone who has a Sonicare knows that toothbrush heads aren’t cheap. I used to pay $9/brush before I found that you can get them for about $6-8 on Amazon.
I have a Sonicare ProResults toothbrush, and I recently test drove the generic toothbrush heads. Considering they cost only $2 each, that’s more than 3 times cheaper than the ones made by Philips!
The ones I tried are made by Paz Generix:
I was tempted to get them because of how cheap they are, but I wasn’t very happy with the results. They aren’t made well. The bristles fall out after just a few times brushing, and the brush head itself doesn’t fit well. This essentially means that the vibrational brushing power is far weaker than the non-generic tooth sonicare tooth brush head. Paz tried to copy the toothbrush head with their generic one, but they did a very poor job, and I’m very disappointed. I don’t recommend it at all. I guess I’m going to be sticking with the official Philips Sonicare toothbrush heads until some company makes a perfect replica.
I recently read about an idea to power rockets with solar energy, also known as “solar sails”. It made me wonder how practical this idea was given that solar thermal energy plants are in the experimental phase in Las Vegas. They basically use thousands of parabolic mirrors to focus sunlight on a central tower, which then runs a rankine power cycle.
Keplar originally proposed the idea of solar sails to navigate the solar system. In this idea, light from the sun basically propells a object without any need for external power. The math is somewhat theoretical, and with little practical data, but the sun can produce about 1.4 kW of power at a distance of 93 million miles away.
I recently ran into this problem, and an easy fix was found here! Basically, just use some nice CSS like class=’selected’. I thought there’d be a straight up PHP way to highlight the results, but CSS/HTML isn’t too hard to implement.
Everything looks new and fresh in the iOS 7 beta. Here are some screenshots to show how the new UI and design looks!
Starting with the homescreen, the signal bars are replaced with circles. Also apparent is the more modern looking font and flat icons.Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and you have quick settings (something I had on my jailbroken iPhone 3GS in 2010) Finally!
The messages app for iOS 7 looks beautiful and modern with a fluid like interface for scrolling.
The weather app is just like Yahoo’s weather app for iOS, but with different backgrounds. This isn’t a bad thing as yahoo’s app is one of the best weather apps.
The new iOS 7 mail app looks great! Will it beat gmail?
Siri looks more useful than ever in iOS 7
The new multitasking pane shows all the apps you have open, and to close apps you can simply swipe up. This is a beautiful UI gem taken straight from Palm’s WebOS and more recently used by Chrome for iOS.
Want to install iOS 7 on your iPhone 5 or 4S? Read this quick guide.

Want the latest and greatest iOS that won’t make it into the hands of the masses for a few more months? You’ve come to the right place! First, you must be a member of the iOS developer program ($99/year) to download the beta SDK.
I had the idea to make a phone case that also functioned as a wallet. Turns out this product already exists in the Incipio Stowaway. For only $15-$18 (depending on the color), you can get an elegant phone case that looks just like a normal case, but also has room for 3 credit cards AND a bill. This essentially means you no longer have to carry around a wallet! I highly recommend the Incipio Stowaway.
See a video of how easy it is to use the Stowaway:
I wrote an easy to use API for displaying cute animal pictures on any webpage.The API uses my website iGoAww.com, and chooses a random picture from amongst tens of thousands of adorable animal pictures.
