Samsung Galaxy S Review: Hands-on With the Android Smartphone

Samsung Galaxy S Review: Hands-on With the Android Smartphone

Beerbot Shirt: is That a Bottle Opener on Your Chest, or Are You Just Glad to See Me?

Beerbot Shirt: is That a Bottle Opener on Your Chest, or Are You Just Glad to See Me?
While I don’t drink enough to need an actual t-shirt that has an integrated beer opener, I guess that for some people, this might be very handy indeed, especially during Spring Break.

The t-shirt costs $20 over at ThinkGeek, and who knows, maybe with this t-shirt, you’ll become the life of the party.

A Smart Car Can Indeed Get Uglier

A Smart Car Can Indeed Get Uglier
Those of you who are really into green stuff may hate me for saying this, but the Smart Car is one of the ugliest vehicles on the road. I mean if I had to choose between the Smart Car and an AMC Pacer, it would be hard to decide.

Gnarcade: Old School Video Games Vs Snowboarding, Who Will Win?
In a war between snowboarding and old school video games, my bet will always be on the video games. There’s just no two ways about it. Lasers will destroy snowboards and skateboards, no matter how cool you try to look.

Metal Detector Wielding Brit Finds $1-Million in Roman Coins
I tried my hand at metal detection when I was a kid. I quickly gave up after all I found were beer bottle tops, tin cans, and eyeglasses. I had hoped to find something awesome like pirate treasure or that Star Wars lunchbox I buried in the backyard with my Luke Skywalker action figure in it.
