Hype, widgets and comics

Cosa significa tutto ciò?
Cosa sta bollendo in pentola? E come mai quei due sfigati ora parlano inglese? Date fiato al passaparola (seee, come no) e restate sintonizzati... sta per arrivare una grossa novità! Here.

A Dream Come True

Put down that Lego nerd, it's time to give your (only?) other interest a poke. Meet the $68 animatronic Darth Vader and R2D2 USB hubs. Just stuff a USB Princess Leia into Darth's neck and watch the dark lord's eyes glow red as he scans side-to-side for the pretentious scowls of your contemptuous co-workers. Sounds effects? Oh you betcha, listen in after the break.

Nice logo

Elephant Bottle Opener

The elephant bottle opener would make a fun and welcome addition to anybody’s kitchen. The elephant’s trunk forms the bottle opener while the backside of the elephant is perfect for hard-to-twist twist off caps. At only $8.99 you can’t go wrong with this little elephant. Here.

Another beauty, not so small

I will try to make this review as comprehensive as possible with samples of the work I have done with the three M8’s that I have used. This will allow others a detailed look at my experiences with the M8, most of which have been negative. Here.

Steve Jobs to speak at WWDC 2008, no way he'll talk about new iPhones

On June 9th, Steve Jobs will be speaking at WWDC. Plans are vague right now, but we understand he will give two lectures on Sudoku, a shirt-folding seminar, and will discuss the possibilities of using a perpetual motion machine to replace the engine in his 1986 Volvo. Afterwards, every developer gets a hug and a low five. It's unlikely he'll discuss the 3G iPhone.
