Grand Theft Auto Kubrick Triple Pack on Ebay: the Cutest Gangsters & Criminals You’Ll Ever See
Rockstar’s money-printing Grand Theft Auto series racks up millions because it successfully blends a free & open world with gripping stories; anyone who’s into video games knows how hard it is to find – or make – a game that does good on both counts.

Breakdancing R/C Car Arrives Just in Time for Nobody to Care About Breakdancing
I’ve been waiting all my life for the day that somebody came up with a gadget that would finally combine my passions for radio-controlled race cars and breakdancing. That day has finally arrived. You can certainly drive this R/C car around the floor just like any other, but the real fun kicks in when you kick it into Breakin’ II Electric Boogaloo mode.

Give Your Living Room a Reset With the Ctrl Alt Del Pillows
Ah, good old Ctrl+Alt+Del: it’s the Heimlich Maneuver of PCs. It’s a key combination used so often one wonders why there’s no single CtrlAltDel button yet for quick resets. And then one realizes that such a button already exists and that it is called the power switch.

Royal & Practical: Princess Toadstool Scarf With Pockets
Gege Crochet loves scarves. I think “scarves” is a weird word. Fortunately Gege’s scarves are anything but weird, like this nice Princess Toadstool scarf. She said that she made this scarf to complement a Mario scarf that she also made.

Steve Jobs Presents the Ipeep Nano
I was cruising around checking out the finalists for the Washington Post’s annual Easter Peeps Diorama competition this morning, and came across this bit of Apple/Peeps humor by Sarah Kohari and Erin Mastrangelo – it’s Peep Chromatic.

Riiflex: Add Some Weight to Wii Fit

Riiflex: Add Some Weight to Wii Fit
If you prefer sweatin’ with a Wii remote over doing the same with the “oldies,” you might be the target audience for the Riiflex. Also: those of you who really dig filling up your houses with Wii accessories, pay attention.

Big Daddy Doll, Straight From the Bioshock 2 Trailer
BioShock 2 doesn’t even exist  yet and already the artisans of the world are hard at work on the sequel to 2K’s alternate-history title. A doll fashioned to look like one of the game’s Big Daddy characters was shown in the sequel’s beautiful (and creepy) trailer, and now that same doll has been recreated in loving detail.

Brionvega Rr227 Retro 1960s Radio Gets 21st Century Renovation With Mp3, Sd and USB
The neo-modern design of this BrionVega desktop radio harkens back to a sixties’ Italian design aesthetic. Maybe that’s because it’s actually based on a radio the company actually made back in 1965 in Italy. BrionVega’s RR227 is a modern-day update of Marco Zanuso and Richard Sapper’s classic RR127 radio, which they created over 44 years ago.

Sinclair Zx Spectrum 8-Bit Micro Computer Gets Modern Makeover as Linux Pc
A few months back, I reported on a guy who turned his old Sinclair ZX81 computer into a PC. When I wrote that post I was convinced that there would be no way that anyone could cram a modern PC into the even more minuscule Sinclair ZX Spectrum.

That’S No Shooter: Kissma, the Kissing Game
So the vast gaming frontier is pretty well packed with shmups of all kinds. Scroll, bounce, dodge, a little running, a little gunning–whatever your preferred action, you can get it in a shooter… and now, that even includes kissing.

The Shocking Mouse, Perfect for the Annoying Co-Worker
If you’re cheap, you can pick up some random iPod knockoff designed to deliver a nasty hilarious shock to the hands of the unwary Grabby McGrabberson. Isn’t laughter worth more than $3.95? Of course it is, why is why big spenders shell out $5.99 for the shocking mouse.

Game Booster May Help Your Pc Play Crysis

Game Booster May Help Your Pc Play Crysis
I’ve seen a lot of programs that scam/trick people or just plain suck, and usually they’re the ones with crappy or generic names. So when I saw IObit’s Game Booster I was really skeptical, but a quick trip to its website assuaged my fears.

Bandai Mugen Beer Can Simulator: Pop Open a Cold Un-Refreshing Un-Brew
Ahh, there’s nothing more refreshing than popping open an ice cold brewski on a hot Summer day. Of course, if you happen to not have a cold brewski on you, you could always go for the next best worst thing – an electronic beer can simulator.

Download a Very Early Build of Google’S Chrome Browser for Intel Macs
A blogger/developer has compiled a very very early build of Google’s browser, Chrome that runs on a Mac. I tested it myself a couple of days ago and it’s fast alright. It’s so fast that it left most of a browser’s functions at Google’s labs: plug-ins don’t work so it can’t play Flash videos.
