Wi-Fi and Gonads Don’t Mix, Says Study
Guys, if you are the sort that uses a notebook with Wi-Fi running in your lap all day long, there is a new reason not to. Over the past few years, the main reason to not do that for me was the fact that notebooks were randomly catching fire.

WalkSafe: Early Warning App Tries to Keep You from Getting Run Over
It’s a common sight to see people using their mobile phones while doing a whole lot of other stuff, like when they’re shopping or grabbing a drink from the vending machine or buying lunch.

Space Invaders Waffle: They’re Invading Breakfast, Is Lunch Next?
Sure, this Space Invaders waffle look delicious, but it makes you wonder if they’ll ever invade your other meals. I don’t think there’s any danger of that, but are there other meals that can be shaped like Space Invaders?

Jetman Yves Rossy Flies in Formation: Danger Has No Meaning to This Guy

Jetman Yves Rossy Flies in Formation: Danger Has No Meaning to This Guy
Yves Rossy, the flying Swiss maniac, has appropriately called himself Jetman, and I have to say that his moniker is well deserved, because that thing strapped to his back just looks plain dangerous. His latest stunt?

Origami Stroller Folds Up at the Push of a Button

Origami Stroller Folds Up at the Push of a Button
As my sister has told me, it’s sometimes a pain to travel when you’ve got babies because of the strollers. It takes a while to fold the entire thing and set it up, it takes a bit longer to make your baby leave your arms and sit in it (if you’ve got a particularly needy baby, then, well, it will take much longer), and another while to fold the entire thing back up again for storage.

iPhone 4 Flip Flop Case: The World’s Most Expensive (and Dangerous) Kids’ Shoe
So I’m really not sure why you’d ever want to buy an iPhone case that looks like a flip-flop sandal, but that didn’t stop somebody in China from making them anyhow. It’s not like you’d ever want to wear your iPhone on your feet, would you?

Apple Founder’s Contract Signed by Jobs, the Woz, and Ronald Wayne to be Auctioned
This is really bizarre to me, but I bet some rich Apple geek will snap this right up. Apparently, the original contract from April 1, 1976 that established Apple Computer Corp. is hitting the auction block at Sotheby’s.
