Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55 Shoots Pics & Video Simultaneously
The last time I used a point-and-shoot regularly was before I had a DSLR, and was trying to develop my photography skills. Yet in a world with Micro Four Thirds and heavier lenses for DSLRs, there’s still room for something light and easy to carry around, like this Sony DSC-TX55 to take high-quality photos without lugging around a bunch of gear.

Missing Link T-shirt: Does This Mean We Devolved?
T-shirt maker/closet archeologist/pun master Jonah Block has a mind-blowing revelation about the evolution of man. Humans are descended from Hylians. Which means Hylians also came from monkeys. So Donkey Kong came first, then Link, then Mario.

It’s been a while since the Facebook iPhone app was released, but people have been anxiously awaiting the iPad app, which, thanks to its larger screen, will make using Facebook a lot more fun. TechCrunch’s MG Siegler reports that the iPad app is actually hidden in the iPhone app codebase, and has been able to play with the app on an iPad ever since Facebook updated their iPhone app to 3.4.4

Mobee Magic Charger for Apple Magic Mouse: Less Magical than Rechargeable Batteries
After releasing the Magic Bar charger for Apple’s wireless keyboard and trackpad, Mobee continues their war on (disposable) batteries with the Magic Charger, which uses inductive charging to wirelessly charge the Magic Mouse, using a base station that is, uhm, wired to your computer’s USB port.

Elecom Nendo Orime Mouse: Polygonal Pointing Peripheral

Elecom Nendo Orime Mouse: Polygonal Pointing Peripheral
One of Elecom’s latest wireless mice, the look of the Orime is supposed to be a reference to the ancient Japanese art of origami. Either that or first generation PlayStation games. Whatever the inspiration, I wonder if anyone bothered to test the usability of this device.

Flower Grenades: For Peaceful Eco-Terrorists

Flower Grenades: For Peaceful Eco-Terrorists
When you see a vacant lot that’s fenced off and no one seems to care about it all that much, why not throw some grenades at it? No, not the ordinary explosive kind – but instead use some Flower Grenades.

Star Trek Monopoly: Boldly Go and Collect $200

Star Trek Monopoly: Boldly Go and Collect $200
I’m not a trekkie, so pardon me if there is indeed evidence to the contrary, but I don’t think acquiring and managing properties is within the duties of a starship captain.

Digger D-3 Robo Tank Exterminates Landmines

Rubik’s Stress Cube is Unsolveable, Still Won’t Stress You Out Like a Real Rubik’s Cube

Rubik’s Stress Cube is Unsolveable, Still Won’t Stress You Out Like a Real Rubik’s Cube
I’m not very good at figuring out Rubik’s Cubes. I did go to University with a guy who would twist and fiddle with 3×3, 4×4, even 5×5 Rubik’s Cubes, and can be done with the whole thing in a matter of a few minutes.

Flying Piggy Banks Accept All Currency

Flying Piggy Banks Accept All Currency
When I was much younger, my mom gave me a tin can with a coin slot on top. She instructed me to drop any spare change I had to save up for a rainy day. I examined the can up close and saw that it was actually a free piggy bank tin that was being given away by a local bank.

Poop… in… Spaaaaaace…

Poop… in… Spaaaaaace…
One of the things that my childhood mind always wanted to know was how you go to the bathroom in outer space. Not to be rude or anything, but it always really sucked when you were dropping one off and accidentally pinched it off too early.

USB Pixel Mouse: Meta Mouse

OS X Lion Coming to a USB Drive Near You

OS X Lion Coming to a USB Drive Near You
I have been playing around with OS X Lion on my MacBook Pro for the last few days, and naturally I also upgraded my wife’s computer to the latest edition.
