Now that Gyromancer has continued what Puzzle Quest started, Infinite Interactive is set to steal back their throne with a sequel to the cult-favorite RPG/puzzle hybrid. Life just got a little sweeter… at least, for me.
Almost every aspect of electronic devices have been vastly improved – or at least miniaturized – these days. Touchscreen displays are becoming common. Monitors and TVs are becoming larger, thinner and the overall quality of their displays are improving as well.
The convergence of the Twilight craze and tech geek-hood was bound to happen at some point. In fact, it may have happened already, but heck if I was paying attention. These Team Jacob decals, however, are as hard to ignore as Taylor Lautner’s crazy muscles.
If you’re curious about what’s really kicking in your holiday food this season, these chemical magnets will shed a little light on the science behind the flavor (and decorate your fridge). Love garlic? Thank the allicin–and celebrate it by plastering it to a metal surface.
How’d you like to curl up for a nice nap inside the engine cowl of a 747? Well ask, and ye shall receive…
The madmen over at MotoArt have taken the engine nacell from a decommissioned 747 jet engine and turned it curvy metal headboard.
Who says there’s not a way to make Thanksgiving just as geeky as every other day of the year?
The guys over at Sparkle Labs have made a simple PDF template you can download to turn your table into a festival of technological bounty.
If there’s anyone out there who still thinks that video games are for kids, here’s something to look at: a student named Matthew couldn’t answer one of the items in his math quiz, so he drew a Pokemon on his test paper instead.
Google’s auto-complete feature guesses what you’re looking for based on the most popular searches, giving you an idea of what other people are searching for as well as what’s on the Internet. I guess it was only a matter of time before someone found himself or herself staring at the suggestions and said, damn, I can’t believe these suggestions; I should make a blog about them.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, you MUST immediately head over to the Star Wars Shop and place your order for one of these Jawa garden gnomes.

Do you still have your old NES console? Do you love electronic music? Then I know what you’re getting for Christmas. This new cartridge for the old Nintendo Entertainment System features a bunch of new “chiptunes” by electronic recording artist Animalstyle (or is that 4NIM4L57YL3?)
Else – formerly Emblaze Mobile – is the latest company to challenge Apple and the iPhone’s domination among smartphones with their curiously-named device, the First Else. The phone is apparently bursting with “revolutionary” and “game-changing” technology and design, including the sPlay, “a right-thumb-controlled, sci-fi-like fan menu interface.”
Symbols are useful, especially in crafting. Why? Because it would be damned difficult to crochet 3.14159 26535 89793 23846 26433 83279 50288 41… well, you get the point. Much, much better to just use the symbol.
One of the most beloved and most famous brands in music, the Walkman was the iPod of my childhood. Funny how both names make no direct reference to their products. Anyway the first ever commercially available Walkman was the TPS-L2, which was released in July 1979; it’s blue-and-silver body still looks sexy to me.
The world is tragically short on Animal Crossing crafts. Sure, occasionally someone turns up with a KK Slider plush or a handmade knick-knack, but the adorable world of Animal Crossing should be everywhere. It should be up there with Katamari Damacy and Loco Roco–at least, visually–but for the most part, Animal Crossing is MIA from the geek craft scene… which is why we have to cherish these things when they do finally turn up.
The guys over at the AcidMods forums recently spotted this dramatic redesign of the Xbox 360 and immediately speculated that it must be an act of clever Photoshoppery. And I’m happy to tell you, this puppy is for reals.
