    Rubik's Cube: Celebrating 30 years of frustration

    I have a confession to make. I've never been able to solve a Rubik's cube. I had a solved one in my office for years, but its one I bought at the store, removed from the package, and put on the shelf. Everything was fine until my son got hold of it, and jumbled it up for me. Read More

    Get right the hell outta town with this one. The kid in the above video plays Ozzy Osbourne’s Mr. Crowly on Expert mode in Guitar Hero, using his right elbow to work the strum bar while his right hand solves not one, but two Rubik’s Cubes. And if that wasn’t difficult enough, he plays with his back facing the game, using a mirror for some reason. Chalk this one up to a skill that… Read More

    Like the Rubik’s Cube, do you? Also like booty-thumping bass in your face? Then you, my friend, are the ideal marketing segment for Elac, maker of the Rubik’s Cube-inspired MicroSub 2010 BT subwoofer.

    New Rubik's Cube Tinier and Easier than Nicole Ritchie

    When I was a kid, we didn’t have a lot of money. As a consequence of this, when there was a highly popular ’80s toy I wanted, I would get the cheap discount store knock off. I have fond memories of my Megatorn and Optimas Prame action figures, not to mention Ha-Men and Skullater. I also had the not-quite-Rubik’s cubes. My favorite was a pyramid that wasn’t so much a puzzle… Read More
