    And now for something truly frightening

    John Biggs wanted me to post some Halloween gadgets today. Here’s a remote controlled pooping, talking skeleton. You won’t see one in my yard. Only $3000 from the nice people at the Horror Dome. Happy Halloween. The Crapper [Horror Dome] Read More

  • The Nikon D3 Designer, Way Up Close And Personal*

    The Nikon D3 Designer, Way Up Close And Personal*

    The recently announced Nikon D3, I’ve been told, should do a decent job of shaking up the professional camera market in Nikon’s favor when it comes out in November, a topic I’ll address in a separate post a bit later. During the press conference, Nikon revealed that the digital SLR (rangefinder?) was designed by the one and only Giorgetto Giugiaro, a crazy old Italian mainly… Read More

  • Sousaphone Hero A Flop For Activision

    Sousaphone Hero A Flop For Activision

    Already suffering after spending years making crappy games, Activision takes yet another hit on its ego with the release of Sousaphone Hero. The Onion reports that “despite a catchy 1890s soundtrack”, the game only sold a paltry 52 copies. The game was released after the success of Guitar Hero and its sequel, Guitar Hero 2. Why would no one buy this game? You can choose cool… Read More

  • If You Grind, She Will Come

    http://gamecockmedia.com/flvplayer.swf This commercial for the game Fury sure is a funny one.

    The AudioFile: Suspicious iPhone Activities

    I was riding my bike the other day, when I got a call from Apple. I pulled over to the curb, and by the time the light on the corner changed, an iPhone was on its way to my apartment. I hadn’t even requested one, yet 36 hours later, it arrived. Sure enough, within an hour I was compulsively checking email and surfing the Web on it, like a kid picking at a mosquito bite. I did pretty normal… Read More

  • Professor Owns Student Trying To Own

    Professor Owns Student Trying To Own

    There’s a terrific story over at IT Toolbox that tells of a professor and one of his childish teenage students. Nicknamed “Pima” (for being a pain in his ass), the student would goof off and pretend to be uber-l337 by changing the root password, arguing points in class – you know, that sort of thing. Since all the students’ PCs are netbooted from a central computer in… Read More
