Revo K2 Speaker/Dock Looks Like a Skyscraper for Ants

Revo K2 Speaker/Dock Looks Like a Skyscraper for Ants
Revo has just released information about their K2, and no it’s not a real skyscraper, but it certainly looks like a distinctive speaker and dock combination for your iDevices and smartphones.

Awesome Cloud Photos Taken from Four Miles Up… With the Door Open!

MarioNYC Map: A Guide to the Apple Empire
I know more about Mario and the Mushroom Kingdom than New York and its citizens, so pardon me if I’m not terribly excited about Jesse Eisemann’s MarioNYC. It’s an animated map of New York City done Super Mario World style, complete with names of places and pixel versions of famous landmarks, like the Apollo Theater, Coney Island and the Empire State Building.

Brick-Built Nameplates: Assemble Your Name with LEGOs
Nameplates are meant to convey that someone is important enough to warrant a nameplate. But if you’d rather be known for being whimsical or creative, or if you just want to celebrate and flaunt your love of LEGO to the world, then ditch the wood and brass and go for a Brick-Built Nameplate.

Gmail, Google Docs & Google Calendar Go Offline
Some of these Google apps have been available offline at various times, and in limited release, but now they’re really available for everyone. You’ll need to use Google Chrome and an add-on that’s called Gmail Offline, but that’s one cool way of being able to use your Gmail pretty much in any situation.

Shoot This Alarm Clock Every Morning to Shut It Up

Shoot This Alarm Clock Every Morning to Shut It Up
