Eat Lead and Live to Tell About it With Some Gold Jell-o Bullets

Eat Lead and Live to Tell About it With Some Gold Jell-o Bullets
I’ve always wanted to rage at someone and tell them to eat lead. Okay, so that might just be in my wildest dreams, because I don’t think I can pull something like that off – unless, of course, I actually had these gold Jell-o bullets in my arsenal.

8-Bit Assassin’s Creed Looks Better than any 8-Bit Console Game I Ever Saw

8-Bit Assassin’s Creed Looks Better than any 8-Bit Console Game I Ever Saw
I like Assassin’s Creed and I’ve played it a bit, but I also like retro games. Maybe I would have liked it better if Assassin’s Creed were an 8-bit game on the NES. Check out this sweet animation that was created to showcase just this.

iPad Piano Apprentice Helps Turn You Into Schroder

iPad Piano Apprentice Helps Turn You Into Schroder
I have always though it would be cool to learn how to play the piano. I don’t want to have to play boring crap like Mary Had a Little Lamb though. I want to just skip to the part where I can play that theme song from Charlie Brown.

White House Rickrolls Correspondent Who Complained Briefing Was Boring
I always think of the people that work at the White House as a bunch of bah humbug sorts that have no fun. I might have to change my notions of these political folks though.

Nintendo has announced that it is dramatically reducing the price of the 3DS. This is good news for mobile gamers that have been on the fence about whether to get one or not. The move is also likely an attempt to shore up the sagging profits at Nintendo with the console not being adopted well.

USB Bell Dings When You’ve Got Mail

USB Bell Dings When You’ve Got Mail
For some reason, I always associate email with “You’ve Got Mail,” that old nineties movie that starred Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. Their romance was totally based on their virtual and online conversations, and I always remember that little old ding (or was it more like a chime sounding out?)

Dry Eyes Are a Thing of the Past With the J!NS Moisture Glasses

Dry Eyes Are a Thing of the Past With the J!NS Moisture Glasses
I carry a small bottle of Eye-Mo in my handbag wherever I go, just in case my eyes begin to feel dry while I’m out at work or doing errands. I once ran out of Eye Mo and literally pinched myself so hard, just so I could cry some tears and bring back some moisture into them.

Chobi Cam One HD: Prosumer Camera for Gnomes?

Chobi Cam One HD: Prosumer Camera for Gnomes?
I know, I can’t believe it either. The diminutive Chobi cameras are transforming from expensive toys into… I don’t know, a line of functional collectibles? Tiny photographers looking for something more high-tech than the Chobi Cam One now have an alternative – the Chobi Cam One HD.

Modular Toaster Concept: Form Toaster and Toaster! Form Toaster and Toaster! And I’ll Form the Toaster!
Designer Hadar Gorelik set out to find a solution to a problem that’s plagued many hungry people in the morning: there’s never enough toast to go around, because most toasters can only take two, maybe four slices of bread at once.

Brando USB Cassette Capture & Player: Go Back in Time and Check Out Those Old 80s Mixtapes

Gamestop Fires Employee for Planking at Work

Gamestop Fires Employee for Planking at Work
I recently stumbled upon a photo album on Facebook about a whole bunch of kids from the University I went to planking all over the campus. The planking photos were amusing, to say the least, and I wasted around a half hour browsing through the entire album.

Mass Effect 3 N7 Rifle Prop Will Make You J*zz Your Pants (and You Can’t Have It)
Try to control yourselves people, this is awesome. The gun you see here is a handmade prop that comes from the same dude, Harrison Krix of Volpin Props, who brought us the M8 replica last year.

Elite750 Email Club Will Make You Poorer But Its Makers Richer

Elite750 Email Club Will Make You Poorer But Its Makers Richer
My dad recently signed up for a country club membership which cost him a whole lot of money and a whole lot of time. I don’t really get the point of club memberships because for one, we don’t really use the facilities much, and two, the food there isn’t so great.
