    Im in ur ______ ______ing ur ______

    <img src="http://old.crunchgear.com/wp-content/pbucket/mad-libs combo, as you use a washable marker to tell everyone, "im in ur mom, borking your unborn retarded sister". OK, that's maybe a bit much, but I'm hardcore, jerks. And it's under $20, so with markers and shipping you can get a perfect gift for your perfect geek and a perfect price. Why don't we… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: AOL 1.0 Floppy, $5,000

    CrunchDeals: AOL 1.0 Floppy, $5,000

    It’s at zero bids, but it would make a great stocking stuffer for, well, nobody. It’s just interesting to know that these things still exist, or at least one of them. It’s an AOL 1.0 floppy disk, and it’s on eBay, and it’s going for just under a grand now. Or you could “buy it now” for $5k. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing. Maybe… Read More

  • The Essential Blake Robinson Holiday Gift Guide

    The Essential Blake Robinson Holiday Gift Guide


    Certified thumbs up. It’s been a fast year for me, but a year of learning. A move across the country, major life upheavals and all sorts of things in-between. What have I learned? Well, I’m just as jaded as ever. It takes more to impress me than should be reasonable and yet, once in awhile, products cross my path that make me do a comical double-take and sometimes find their way… Read More

  • Behold the decline and fall of the technical age: the scrolling LED tree ornament

    Behold the decline and fall of the technical age: the scrolling LED tree ornament

    It’s official in my book: technology has become so cheap that it can’t help but be tacky. You may take this art deco scrolling LED ornament as an example of this. It has a matrix of LEDs around the outside and scrolls wishes of Xmas cheer to boost your Yuletide spirit. And get this: it’s called “Seasons Readings”. Get it!? If this isn’t an excuse for a… Read More

    Chip Clips: Stocking Stuffer for your geeky girlfriend

    Attention, ladies of Seattle: If you’re walking around wearing these, and I see you, we’re getting married right then and right there. Computer chip hair clips! [Etsy, via 7 Gadgets, via Shiny Shiny] Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Maxtor OneTouch external drives

    CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Maxtor OneTouch external drives

    turned me onto the Maxtor OneTouch 4, and I must say it’s the most excellent external drive I’ve ever owned. Though there are drives with much higher capacities than mine’s 120GB, the OneTouch is great for mobile users as it uses USB bus power to work, no stupid power cables to schlep around. In a perfect world, everything would have bus power, it’s cheaper, and easier… Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Crumpler's Brazillion Dollar Home

    CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Crumpler's Brazillion Dollar Home

    <img src="http://old.crunchgear.com/wp-content/pbucket/20. Isn't that what they always say? Yeah, it irritates the feck out of me, too. I was in the market for a camera bag a little while back and I figured I'd just grab one of Crumpler's 'buckets' and drop it into my Barney Rustle Blanket. It was perfect, I didn't have to spend a whole lot of money on a… Read More

  • John Biggs' Holiday Gift Guide: Bringing it all back home

    John Biggs' Holiday Gift Guide: Bringing it all back home

    Come back with me to a simpler time. It was twenty years ago, I was about 12, and the coolest stuff I owned was a huge set of G.I. Joe figures and, as I recall, an NES. I was late to the video game party mostly because I used my Atari 800XL a lot at the time and I recall getting the Bridgelayer vehicle and, that year, a few NES games. I could spend hours setting up my guys in battle formation… Read More

  • CG Holidays 2007 Recommendation: ACE Grooming Gear

    CG Holidays 2007 Recommendation: ACE Grooming Gear


    Dual action for your pleasure. For those old enough to even know the brand ACE, well, they’re back. For the rest of you, listen up. This ageless plastic comb company has now come out with a line of men’s grooming products that won’t make you feel like Queen Depilitia of the Hairless Ones. I got to play with the tweezers, nail care kit, and excellent dual-action hair trimmer… Read More
