Edited by Mark Dury from Thoughtbubble Design Concern, in Snub Fighter, you will discover a new Luke Skywalker – someone who is dangerously incompetent, who’s always late for the attack, disobeys orders, ignores Obi-Wan’s advice, and then misses his final shot at destroying the original Death Star.

N-Board Turns iPad Into Netbook, Sorta, Kinda.
Fresh from the streets of Korea comes the N-Board, a new gadget which lets you convert your iPad into an (almost) full-fledged netbook computer. The handy N-Board acts as an easel to prop up your iPad, but also sports a hub with 4 USB ports, and what I thought was an unnecessary cooling fan.

Retro Star Wars Posters: Wait I Thought Star Wars was Already Retro
Pat Langton put together these nifty retro Star Wars posters. The only beef that I have is that I thought that Star Wars was already retro… Still, it’s always cool to see a re-interpretation of my favorite trilogy, by this I mean the original trilogy, not the new one!

IPhone 4 Gets Folding Keyboard (Sorta)
iPhone haters really like to rag on the fact that the phone has no actually keys, only virtual ones. This somewhat impractical, but clever add-on aims to fix that shortcoming.
