Physicists Verify E=mc^2. Economy Still Struggling.

You’ve gotta hand it to the Japanese. They managed to take the strains of howling, tone deaf, drunken business executives and turn them into a multi-billion dollar yen industry. Now you can bring the Karaoke experience to your living room, complete with a cheezy disco light show.

If like me you possess a face that could blind people outright, you probably don’t post your picture online, like on facebook or friendster. You probably don’t even have friends. Well have I got the thing for you.

Tiny Wii-Mote Projector Shines Mario Kart on Your Wall
Is that a Wii-mote in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? That’s the question your friends will be asking when you pop these mini Wii controller keychains into your pants. These weensy Wii-motes (just 2.25″ tall) don’t just look cool.

Energuy Wants You to Take His Hand

Mirror’S Edge Gets Flattened Into 2-D
It looks like the new hit 3-D action platform video game Mirror’s Edge has just gotten a makeover as a 2-D Flash mini-game you can play right in you web browser.

Looking for something to do with all those Starbucks coffee cups you collect every morning? Why not turn them into some great geek art like this guy did.

I’m sure some of you have seen the numerous and occasionally cryptic do’s and don’ts for the DSi. Well Blockhead’s Guitar Hero controller for the Wii also has its own demands. I was just minding my own business, laughing at Engrish pics, when I came upon Blockhead’s manual for their Max V wireless guitar.

As much as you might love your MacBook or MacBook Pro, there’s no denying that the lack of a numeric keypad can really slow you down if you work with numbers all the time.
