Stupid

  • The most asinine iFone accessory known to man

    Oddly enough, I’m almost 100 percent positive that Biggs uses this when he’s at home by himself. Seriously, though, who comes up with this nonsense? Condoms for your thumb and index finger so you don’t smudge your precious iFones. This is more or less a clear indication that the world is teetering on the verge of collapsing around us. The Phone Fingers are textured (and… Read More

  • Hell on Earth: Seoul's E-mart

    I can’t really understand anyone’s fascination with the E-mart in Yongsan. It’s not like you’re going to find super cool gadgets or anything. The reason this place is so famous is because of the sheer volume of crap that’s available for purchase. It’s just a bunch of counters crammed together with the brightest fluorescent lights known to man. Read More

  • Girl Charged With Piracy Over Brief Transformers Taping

    Jhannet Sejas is a struggling immigrant trying to put herself through college (we’ve all been there, not the struggling immigrant part, but the whole college thing) and to celebrate her 19th birthday she caught a showing of Transformers with her boyfriend. Now she faces up to a year in jail and a $2,500 fine for filming 20 seconds of the coolest movie ever made. The pimply-faced… Read More

  • YouTube Is Now Pseudo-Widescreen

    Dear Readers, Welcome to another day of slow news! It very rarely happens on ‘Tech Thursday’, but today happens to be as slow as molasses, so we’ll try to make this as interesting as possible. A few nerds on the Interwebs have noticed that the YouTube thumbnails have gone widescreen and they’ve jumped to the conclusion that widescreen videos will now be incorporated. Read More

  • Korean Man Retaliates Poor Cell Service

    Disenchanted with his cellular service, a Korean man decided to take an interesting and unconventional approach to retribution. After trying unsuccessfully to get SK Telecom to fix his device he decided to drive over to SK offices. The problem is, when he got there, he just kept driving — right through the front of the building. Actually, that’s not entirely true. First he parked… Read More

  • Cell Phone Anklet

    This is stupider than those belt clips that guys use for their cell phones. I never understood why guys do that anyway. I mean, your pocket is like 2-inches away. Anyway, consider this the equivalent for women. Now they too can wear their cell phones in a ridiculous place: their ankles. Totally convenient too. Just bend over every time you want to answer your phone. No way it’d get… Read More

  • Apple Orders Bar to Cease and Desist "iPod Monday"

    For the past two years a Des Moines bar has run iPod Monday, a gathering where patrons bring in their iPods and share playlists others in attendance. For two years, Clint Curtis, the event coordinator, has sent weekly updates to Apple and prior to the event he asked for permission. For two years, Apple remained silent. Then one day Curtis quietly received an email from Apple ordering him to… Read More

  • "Healing Moon" for Hippy Shut-Ins

    If your apartment is anything like our apartment, meaning small, cramped, and with token “windows,” then you might benefit from this “Healing Moon” by Brando. We’re not sure if it actually heals anything, but it does make a half-way decent artificial moon, if that’s your thing, mimicking the 12-phases on cue via an IR remote. The real point of this thing is… Read More

  • Funnest, Most Dangerous Toys of 2006


    Every year local news outlets drag out that old chesnut, the most dangerous toys of the year. This year they focus on Heely’s aka Massive Head Trauma in a Shoe and a Superman lamp that could, according to W.A.T.C.H., a fey child protection/consumer group, kill your children and then micturate on their graves. The manufacturer’s proclamation that the figurine is not a toy has… Read More

  • La Brea Massive: 'Spensive Zunes


    If you’re one of those people who never surf, but like to wear surfing clothing for some reason, I’d like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to the La Brea Massive limited edition Zunes. Stussy, Union and Undftd represent the La Brea Massive stores, the most prominent retailers on La Brea Ave. Each retailer will receive two limited edition Zune kits to auction off. Read More

  • Samsung YP-K5, Toughest Kid on the Block?

    Well this is about the stupidest thing I’ve ever seen, but it’s impressive nonetheless. This video shows some guy running over a Samsung YP-K5 MP3 boombox with his truck. I’m not sure why he did it, but the player withstood the beating admirably. The Samsung YP-K5 Gets Driven Over [dapreview] Read More

  • Ice Rocks. Sigh.

    File this one under stupid. The Water Bank of America, Inc. will soon be offering ice trays that are hermetically sealed with spring water. There is currently no stated price, but Ice Rocks will come in packs of 4, 24, 48 and an economy size that holds 200 cubes. Now I have to wonder about the real demand for this. The price will surely be jacked up. If you really need frozen spring water… Read More

  • JBL Tackles Mt. Everest

    Alright so technically, they just made some speakers named Mt. Everest, but they do weigh 313 pounds, which might as well be as heavy as a mountain for some people (me). The Mt. Everest speakers blast at 500-watts and measure mountainously at 9″ x 18.5″ x 44″. So if you have $30,000 to buy them, I hope you have a lot of spare room. Our pals in Nippon will be able to purchase… Read More
