  • Nice total breakdown of a PS3

  • Apple has lost its mind; invites field trips to Apple Stores

    In a move that can be considered either innovative or madness, Apple has extended an invitation for K-12 students to run a muck through an Apple Store now through November 21.

    Anyone see The Office last night? I laughed out loud at the Battlestar Galactica bit. You? Here it is again for your viewing pleasure. For those of you who missed it, here’s the premise: Dwight claims that he never wastes the company’s time on personal activities, so Jim takes to using a stop watch to document every single second that Dwight is off task.

  • Delicious, Upcoming Founders To Show You Political Bias Of News Sites

    What has ex-Yahooer and Delicious founder Joshua Schachter been working on since leaving Yahoo last June? At least one project is a GreaseMonkey script that shows readers the political leanings of blogs and news sites on Memeorandum, a news aggregator. Political sites are usually very biased, but the casual reader often doesn’t know which way a particular site tends to rant. With the… Read More

  • 1337 in games, n00b in bed


    It’s always been… well, tacitly assumed that those of us — I mean, of humanity in general — who excel in the fine art of fragging, have always lagged behind somewhat in the romantic arena. Despite all the “geeks are sexy” and “love is leet” sentiments going around these days, there’s no way some fox is going to prefer a guy just because of… Read More

  • YouTube/MacBook hilarious comments round-up

Hit the jump to read some comments left about the probably-fake MacBook video that surfaced earlier this morning. Just a warning that there’s some harsh language… Read More

This Instructables instructable is probably the most complicated way to go about this; there’s a lot of soldering and voltage metering going on when you really could simply, well, glue a small flash… Read More

  • Take your chalkline into the 20th century – not quite the 21st, it's just ink

    I don’t know how many of you guys out there have to use chalklines very often, or indeed how many Crunchers have ever even touched one. Personally, I like the idea of chalklines but never get a chance to use them (I have a nice little toolset, though). I think it’s the little puff of chalk when I snap the line that gets me so excited. Unfortunately, that puff leads to a slightly… Read More

  • DIY: turn an unused TiVo into a HTPC

    I love it! The hardest part about building a HTPC always seems to be finding a case that doesn’t look out of place with the other AV equipment. Even specialty built HTPC cases still don’t have the look and feel of traditional equipment; that’s where an old TiVo comes into play. This guy simply ripped out all the TiVo innards and shoved a Ubuntu XBMC computer within. He was… Read More
