  • This Is Iron Man's Armor? WTF!


    The Iron Giant I know, I know. This has nothing to do with gadgets or gear, but I know many of you have an interest in the upcoming Iron Man movie. Well, I guess it does have to do with gadgets. Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor is constantly evolving and kicking more ass with every mod, so what was revealed at Comic-Con is baffling. It looks more like the The Iron Giant doesn’t it? Read More

  • Buy.com Will Go Out Of Business Because Of This

    As Deleon and I waited for Entourage to come on last night, this commercial for Buy.com popped on during some channel surfing. There were five of us in the room and for a total of 30-seconds, we all sat without saying a word watching the worst commercial for a website we’ve ever seen. Buy.com, because of this commercial, you will go out of business. There is simply no way anyone can take… Read More

  • Have An iPod Shuffle? Check Out iSlimCharger

    A company named Monster, who I believe bears no relation to Monster Cable, has just released a cool little accessory for 2G iPod Shuffles called iSlimCharger. It plugs into the docking port on the bottom of the iPod and then has a USB connector to plug the entire set into a PC for charging. Simple, yet a lifesaver when you’re on the go and don’t feel like dragging an iPod dock along. Read More

  • In Da Club: Bill Gates

    In Sarajevo, Bill Gates is the next best thing to diamonds apparently. So it makes perfect sense why Club Bill Gates exists. Looks actually kind of crowded and more like a restaurant than a club. I wonder how the “Blue Spaghetti of Death” is… Flickr Page Read More

  • Inky Gives Pac-Man The Big FU

    Remember when the coolest mod for your bike was sticking a baseball card in the spokes? That totally got the chicks didn’t it? I’m not sure if this will pick up the ladies, but it so damn cool.

Using a special Huckleberry mirror and the built-in WiFi, the two were… Read More
