Qooq Tablet: Now We’re Qookin with Qrisco!

Qooq Tablet: Now We’re Qookin with Qrisco!
I’ve always been somewhat perplexed by users having more than one tablet. Still, I have to say that a smaller tablet, perhaps an inch or two smaller than the iPad Mini, could be handy to tote around daily.

Atari 2600 VCS: Video Cake System

I might be a little behind the times, but I just finished the campaign mode of Halo 4 over the holidays.

Space Invaders Invade Snowy Mountainside
