  • Tech Horror Stories: Trouble in Paradise

    Tech Horror Stories: Trouble in Paradise

    The first of our Tech Horror Stories. If you have one you’d like to share send it to john at crunchgear.com ASAP. Spooky! So I was an IT contractor working in Honolulu. Except there’s a small part of the Hawaiian heritage they don’t promote along with the palm trees and beaches featured in the travel guides. One night I was working late. It was probably two in the morning and I… Read More

    Awesome Party Guy Vid!

    Now this is what I call a Halloween costume. Leave your unoriginal iPhone costumes at home people, ’cause Awesome Party Guy is on a roll this year as a YouTube video. He even has a comments section, where people can write dirty jokes and draw dicks after slamming back a couple Jello shots. Dress up as a YouTube clip and let people comment on you directly [MAKE] Read More

    Team Fortress 2 IRL

    Anyone who can round up 8 nerds to dress up like characters from a recently released video game is a master of manipulation. Anyone who can get them to huddle together for a picture, is a demigod. Team Fortress 2 Group Halloween Costumes Read More

    Mega Man carved into a pumpkin

    This Halloween, take some time in between the Reeses and the Snickers to honor old-school gaming. May I suggest popping in a Mega Man 3 cartridge for the NES to honor this beautiful pumpkin? Keep in mind though, just because you have a Mega Man pumpkin, doesn’t mean you’ll make it past Gemini Man. And Now, A Megaman Pumpkin [Kotaku] Read More

  • A costume idea I won't be using, so you should feel free to

    A costume idea I won't be using, so you should feel free to

    I was looking for costume ideas when I ran across this fairly geeky idea that I won’t be doing. You, however, should feel free to indulge yourselves. On that note, I still don’t have a costume, and am open to ideas, as I have like 4 Halloween parties to attend in the next three days. And that’s all before the 31st. Don’t you wish you could be me, just for one day? Also… Read More

  • Scorched Earth Rock Mod

    Scorched Earth Rock Mod

    The boys over at bit-tech.net got their hands on an Extreme 64 power notebook from Rock. In honor of Halloween, the case was modded to feature skulls on a rock-looking background. It came out looking surprisingly cool, but the final product added another 2-pounds to a system that already weighs over 10. Crazy. Anyway, you can follow the link below for a full gallery.

  • Mac-O-Lantern

    Mac-O-Lantern

    What do you get when you mis a mac mini and a jack-o-lantern? A Mac-O-Lantern, of course. One industrious individual decided to embark on the task of making a case mod out of a pumpkin. I love the fact that he went through all the trouble of carving this thing up and putting together the case, knowing the pumpkin would only rot in a few days. Ah flirtations with futility. This is how we built the… Read More
