What would happen if Pac-Man was on twitter? A whole lot of trouble, that’s what.
I laughed my ass off when I saw this hysterical illustration by Scott Hampson. Scott, will you please make T-shirts out of these?
Have an iPhone 3G running OS 3.0? Ready to pick your own mobile carrier? Well now you can release your iPhone 3G from its shackles.
iPhone Dev-Team’s Ultrasn0w carrier unlock hack works on iPhone 3G models, but doesn’t yet work on the 3GS.
No, this oddly-shaped pink gadget isn’t some sort of sex toy. Unless you think that playing with your Wii is a stimulating experience.
What you’re looking at here is the Conny Q3 Sports, a video game console out of China that’s designed to play like the Nintendo Wii, but for a whole lot less money.
Here we go again. Pink Gundam with garish embellishments: cute or stupid? Does the existence of this no doubt unofficial model embarrass Giant Gundam? Or is it what the statue is looking for, the reason for his incessant head movements?
HP recently introduced their latest printer called Photosmart Premium with TouchSmart Web (henceforth called PSPWTSW), a name which if stripped of marketing speak actually reveals the printer’s capabilities: it’s a photo printer (actually it’s an all-in-one) with a 4.33″ touchscreen, and it can connect to the web via WiFi.
It’s a match made in silly retro heaven: the Nintendo Wii and its motion-sensing controller (perfect for shooting) and classic corny live action arcade shooters. Majesco’s just released a pack of three Mad Dog McCree games at a budget price.
The Go Computer, made by a company called firstSTREET, tries its best to be the most user-friendly computer on Earth. Unfortunately, in a tragic combination of stereotyping and a lack of imagination firstSTREET is marketing their device towards elderly people, neglecting the fact that there are old people out there who are already comfortable with using computers, and that there are younger people out there who are not familiar with computers and therefore would benefit from a dumbed-down interface.
So what do you need to throw down for a little goodtime fun with a PlayStation 2? Screen, console, controller, games (and snacks optional), yeah? That’s the list (sans popcorn) that one industrious modder came up with… and then he packed it all into a briefcase.
I love the new Gamespy. Who else loves the new Gamespy! Before they were just another video game site, with previews, reviews, and tons of ads, except that they had Flintlocke. But now they have so much more to offer.
Like Tetris? Then you’ll love this website that features all the Tetris you can handle – 24-hours-a-day, 7 -days-a-week, 365-days-a-year.
Tetris Friends is an online gaming experience that offers a bunch of Flash-based variants on the classic puzzler by Alexey Pajitnov.

Though I’m not at all certain that a Red Ring of Death is something to celebrate, per se (they’re usually occasions of anger and misery in my neighborhood), I suppose it’s nice to take something awful and turn it into something cool.
You may think you love Transformers, but unless you’ve got a lifesized replica holding court in your front yard, this fellow Tom Rhodes has got you beaten all the way. Made from an actual car–the only way to go–the Autobot replica stands a monstrous 18 feet.
Monster hasn’t had a great year, what with their fake performance tests and their un-endorsements. But that doesn’t mean that the company is 100% crap. Take their Outlets To Go power strip with USB port for example.
Think you have enough Space Invaders stuff in your house? Are you sure? Really? If they haven’t yet invaded your kitchen yet, you’ll want to grab these Invaders magnets for your fridge.
In all, the set comes with 56 individual pieces, including 50 aliens, 4 defense bunkers, 1 UFO, and a laser cannon for wiping out the aliens.
Neatorama recently posted a bunch of Star Trek cakes, which I assume would be the perfect food for your Star Trek marathons. They’re also unhealthy, but who cares right? All for the sake of awesome. Here’s one of them, a cute and miniature bridge scene on top of an otherwise ordinary base made by reality TV show “Ace of Cakes”:
Here’s another one, a fairly large replica of the Enterprise made by European Cake Gallery.
