Firefox Coming to the PS3?! Please be True [Rumors]
Sony rolled out firmware v. 3.10 for the PS3 today, bringing Facebook integration to the system. Your boss will now know that you’ve been playing Pro Evo 2010 instead of writing your blog posts. Yay. Screw that, here’s something us PS3 owners can look forward to: a PlayStation Insider source who’s “very close to Sony” says that the company has been discussing the possibility of porting Mozilla’s increasingly bloated/ultra-versatile web browser on to their console.

That Old Pac-Man Holiday Spirit

That Old Pac-Man Holiday Spirit
Ahhh, the holidays are nearly upon us, and you know what that means: Pac-Man. He’s already invaded weddings, after all.

Play Pong on Your Living Room Walls
After a long day of immersed in a round of Uncharted 2, sometimes it’s nice to take a break from those cinematic next-gen 3D graphics and get back to basics. And there’s nothing quite as primitive as a good old game of Pong.

Best Portable Dreamcast Casemod Yet?

Best Portable Dreamcast Casemod Yet?
While this wouldn’t be the first handheld based on the Sega Dreamcast, I have to say that from the looks of these blurryvision pics, it sure looks like a good one. Fans of the classic Sega console will appreciate the clean and compact styling of this portable remake what is arguably one of the best consoles of all time.

Matias Tactile Pro 3 Keyboard: the Mac Gets a Real Keyboard Again
While many of you might like the industrial design of the keyboards that Apple has been churning out for the last several years, I still long for keys that FEEL like keys. Thankfully, the guys over at Matias have the same sentiment and are getting ready to release a new Mac keyboard with REAL keys, not those wimpy “chiclet” buttons.

Car Launching: Exactly What It Sounds Like

Car Launching: Exactly What It Sounds Like
Think Gay Wilkinson’s anvil launching antics were crazy? 3 months ago, Bob Moravitz and his family and friends went beyond launching a small piece of metal – they launched cars. And a pickup. and a camper with a boat in tow.

Fuji Instax Camera Prints Tiny Pics for $1 Each, Will Really Make You Treasure Your Captured Memories

Fuji Instax Camera Prints Tiny Pics for $1 Each, Will Really Make You Treasure Your Captured Memories
Remember the PoGo? That’s Polaroid’s modern-day take on their classic instant cameras. The PoGo lets users edit pics before printing them, or you could save the pics and upload them to a computer later on. Fuji’s Instax instant camera has half of the functionality of the PoGo at half the price, which seems like a fair trade at first glance, plus the Instax looks way cuter than the PoGo.

Pac-Man Wedding Cake: With This Ring, I Thee Wokka, Wokka, Wokka
Looks like Mr. and Ms. Pac-Man finally got hitched. At least that’s what I first gleaned when I stumbled onto this geektastic Pac-Man wedding cake. Actually, this wasn’t the main wedding cake, but actually a groom’s cake that blogger The Domestic Scientist recently made for a friend’s wedding.

Hypnoseye Turns Your iPhone Into a Projector

Hypnoseye Turns Your iPhone Into a Projector
The HypnosEye lets you project images from the screen of your iPhone, iPod Touch or other mobile device onto a screen. Nope, it doesn’t take the video signal and project it using a separate light source – it actually uses a special anti-glare mirror and lens to blow up the screen onto a projection surface.

Nasa Launches Free iPhone App

Nasa Launches Free iPhone App
Space puns ftw! NASA recently released a free iPhone app that promises a ton of content for space fans, including mission details, videos, images, and twitter feeds. The mission portion is probably the geekiest part of the app, allowing users to read mission details, view launch or arrival countdown clocks, and even follow the orbit of certain spacecraft.

Psp 3000, Now Polished With a Plethora of Pleasing Lights

Psp 3000, Now Polished With a Plethora of Pleasing Lights
Some mods look deceptively simple, like this customized PSP 3000. Sure, you see a few lights, and if you check out the in-progress pictures, you can even see more of the upgrades and fitting progress. But the end result is a disco inferno of lights and sounds that you’d never expect from looking at this picture.

Gyromancer Puzzle Rpg is Here to Steal Your Days Away
Move over, Puzzle Quest. You had a good run with the whole jewel-matching RPG hybrid, but the big boys have come to steal your throne… and rock our faces off. Gyromancer may be a little late (the Puzzle Quest folks already moved on to sci-fi), but it really doesn’t matter when this boat arrives.
