Maybe this explains why Peter hasn’t been around lately. It seems that blogger are being brutally murdered politely asked to remove confidential information whenever they write about the upcoming… well, let’s just say it isn’t the fat PS3.
I haven’t had any mysterious knocks on my door, but these guys weren’t so lucky. → Read More
Man. How did our parents – and most of us – survive the 1950s, 60s, and 70s? DaddyTypes points us to the Ford Treasury of Station Wagon Living, a book that recommends that it’s great to drive around the countryside at speed in a huge steel station wagon with three babies in the back cargo area. I distinctly remember spending long car rides in the cargo area of our Ford Fairmont… → Read More
I could really use this. I find that the asxphyixiation induced by heavy workouts can – and does – improve sexual response. Therefore as I browse GrannyLovers.org – the world’s only open-souce granny resource – I can use this Web Cycle to boost my throughput and improve my good time. The cycle was created by Matt Gray and Tom Scott and uses a janky exercise bike and… → Read More

This wee fellow wanders around until it finds something that looks like it can be used as a drum surface – a vase, a box, or whatever – and then rolls up to it and taps out a jaunty tune. → Read More
Anonymous writes in reaction to the heated debate about an older Laptop Hunter ad featuring Sheila:
Wow, I’ve learned so much from all of this stimulating, relevant debate. Thanks, guys!
Just a few of the things I’ve learned from these comments:
1. The only reason to buy a Mac is OSX
2. The only reason to buy a Mac is the build quality
3. OSX sucks compared to Windows
4. Windows sucks… → Read More
Giz has some great videos from Crazy Eddie, the guy who went nuts in New York and New England back in the 70s and 80s, selling home appliances and CE to a trendy and naive audience. → Read More
Don’t pull it until you’re leaving the aircraft. Is it just me or are they all cracking up through this whole thing or is just their bright, happy smiles and, erm, chests? → Read More
Just got this email. It’s a bit presumptuous considering the common expectation is that you don’t author your own Wikipedia entry.
Basically Jimmy is asking me to become a fan of his Facebook page but does Jimmy really need fans? And does he have to launch such a personal appeal? He’s a heck of a guy, I’m sure, but what’s in it for me? → Read More
These half-joking “tips” for photographers have been running in a Latvian weekly for over a year. Some are true, some are weird, and some are pretty funny. I’ve seen some photos that could use some of this extremely basic advice. → Read More
Our own Bryce found this funny commercial from 1991 featuring none other than Paul “The Animal” Rudd, star of stage and screen. How many of us wouldn’t have killed to be able to play Super Nintendo in the jail set from Red Dawn while wearing a fashionable blazer? Exactly. → Read More
It’s a Saturday morning. You’re making Silver Dollar Hots for the family. The doorbell rings. It’s the mailman. He’s brought a CubeGuard. That’s right: on the traditional day before or the actual day of rest, the mailman is here to bring you something to remind you of work. But what a gadget it is! It’s basically one of those crowd control tapes with a spring… → Read More
A screen in a public bicycle lending site in Zamora, Spain was hacked to display porn for hours and hours, resulting in loads of Iberian titters and even more Iberian… well. → Read More
So I’m looking at this and I find this. That’s right: it’s an entire website, frequently updated, dedicated to pictures of computers in movies in television. Did you know they used a Twentieth Anniversary Mac in Children of Men? No, you did not and neither did I.

There are lots of cord winding solutions out there but Cordotz are kind of special. There are three parts to the system. First, there are the Dotz Identifiers themselves that identify each cable on your power strip. Then you have a Dotz strap that keeps those cables together in one bundle. Finally, you have the Dots Winder that winds the cable into a manageable little case. In all, you’ve got a… → Read More
Oh, cats. Will you ever cease being entertaining? Your feline antics are irresistible. Here we have a common house cat that seems perplexed and/or horrified by the noises its owner’s printer is making. I’ve never liked that little eet-eet noise either, but at least it doesn’t make me convulse. That would have been embarrassing in middle school. → Read More
A replica of the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch was found under a hydrant cover in Shoreditch, East London, causing the bomb squad to be called and creating a general tizzy in nearby pubs and shops. Police evacuated their bowels and the streets with excitement and, after discovering that it was, in fact, a toy, they went off to hunt down the killer rabbit could have been the grenade’s intended… → Read More

I was on the SXSW Meatbus last night and I met a charming young lady from England, Renate, who introduced me to the Poken. Poken is a tiny USB key with an embedded RFID reader/transmitter. When you press a little button on the dongle and place it next to another Poken it passes all of your pertinent information to between Pokens – Pokenii? You then plug the Poken into a laptop and connect to… → Read More
Peter Ha just spotted this crazy street sign at Houston and Bowery. Someone will probably get nailed for this – NYC doesn’t take kindly to folks meddling with their infrastructure. It will be a silent killing, though – not all loosey goosey like the Boston LED-alien-flipping-the-bird scare. → Read More
Hold onto your hats, partner, because this is going to be a wild ride! Microsoft just announced a laptop cooling base. Why? Because laptops need to be cool, that’s why! The cooling base will cost $29.95 and should be available in July – just in time for hot weather! → Read More
