    California Democrats .Whine Over Proposed .Wine Domains

    Let’s see if we can do this without making any puns. In May, California Democratic Congressman Mike Thompson sent a letter to the Internet Corporation for Assigning Names and Numbers (ICANN), asking that .wine and .vin domain not be assigned to “any applicant,” provided that worries concerning protections against cybersquatting can’t be resolved. Congressman… Read More

  • Silly video: The too-big-for-its-own-good Kindle 9 XXXD

    Oh, Internet! This here is a silly video showing a future version of the Amazon Kindle, the Kindle 9 XXXD. Why, it’s so big it can’t possibly be practical to use! Read More

  • New way to go "around the world" – the jet engine bed

    California-based Motoart repurposes aircraft parts into furniture and their latest creation is the 747 Jet Liner Bed. Created from the engine nacelle from a 747, their new bed features a round mattress and box springs. Just the thing for the…well, I have no idea who would want this. Read More

    This chair researched at Ryerson University will make you feel the music. It has vibrating coils that will stimulate your senses in various ways depending on the music. Check out the video. Read More

  • Video: Glitchy Gears of War 2 asks ‘Walls? What walls?’

    Looks like that Gears of War 2 patch didn’t fix this nasty little bug. As the hilarious video shows, the game’s walls, at least in multiplayer mode, might as well not even be there. Damage goes right through them. Utter chaos. In fact, Kotaku calls the glitches “game-breaking,” but from what I’ve read, mulitplayer has been janky since launch, so this is just a… Read More

  • Video: Triumph the Insult Comic Dog makes fun of Comic-Con attendees

    http://widgets.nbc.com/o/4727a250e66f9723/489af560addadbf4/48987cb5e440cf6c/4bbaca39 Comic-Con 2008 came and went, and somehow this delightful Comic the Insult Comic Dog skit flew right under our noses. It’s the same “you guys are dorks” deal that Triumph has been doing for several years now, so if you’re offended by sophomoric humor à la Conan steer clear. via… Read More

  • Morons vs. the Intelligent: Reporter covers the iPhone line

    In which Hollywood reporter Eric Spillman, who might have had a few Appletinis before he hit the streets, gets his ass handed to him by someone considerably smarter than him and, I would note, with a more developed sense of priorities than some slap-happy TV pug asking asinine questions of normal folks on line. via BBG Read More

    Here’s a little early morning funny from XKCD for you kids. Why? Because we love you. Read More

  • Low Tech: Washington state's caucuses are nuts

    [photopress:CaucusAudience.jpg,full,center] So we were in a room in the basement of a church. There were more people stuffed in there than should have been. There was no place to sit, lean, or kneel. We stood rigid as we got our instructions on how to caucus, and it turns into a popularity contest. The worst part is Newsweek is calling today “Significant Saturday”, to counter… Read More

  • Silliest of CES 2008

    At any trade show, you’re bound to see some good stuff. This post, however, is not about that; it’s about the most ridiculous things I’ve seen so far here at CES, like the USA-themed piano above in Gibson’s tent. From the gawdy to the bawdy, feast your eyes on these abominations. (More pics after the jump.) Read More

  • This post has nothing to do with Leopard, Kindle, iPhone or anything

    We will not be writing a post on Facebook dropping the word “is” from its status messages. It’s just silly. Facebook drops the word “is” from the status message; tech blogs go bonkers [tech.blorge.com] Read More

  • What washed up rock star blames college kids for killing the music industry?

    The record industry doesn’t have a f—ing clue how to make money. It’s only their fault for letting foxes get into the henhouse and then wondering why there’s no eggs or chickens. Every little college kid, every freshly-scrubbed little kid’s face should have been sued off the face of the earth. They should have taken their houses and cars and nipped it right there… Read More

  • Show up the neighbors with this F1 inspired lawnmower

    I don’t have a lawn. I’m an apartment dweller, and I’m okay with that. But if you’re the domestic type who feels the need to thrash small single-leaved plants to impress your likewise shallow neighbors, you’re going to want to do it in style. Behold the majesty of the F1 lawn mower. It might look like a toy, but the F1 inspiration is in more than the shape… Read More

  • In Da Club: Bill Gates

    In Sarajevo, Bill Gates is the next best thing to diamonds apparently. So it makes perfect sense why Club Bill Gates exists. Looks actually kind of crowded and more like a restaurant than a club. I wonder how the “Blue Spaghetti of Death” is… Flickr Page Read More

  • Wii's Dirty Little Bonus

    Kotaku scooped a tasty little piece about Ethur, a faith-based cult in California, attacking Nintendo’s Wii. In a press release released by Ethur and ThePornTalk.com, the initiative attempts to expose the dangers of WiiPorn (not to be confused with WeePorn, which is a whole different story altogether). The frightening quotes come from ThePornTalk.com founder Mike Foster. Like the zipper… Read More
