The cabinet measures in at over 13-feet tall, and has a 70-inch screen for massively monstrous gaming action.

24: the Early Years

24: the Early Years
Check out this never before seen episode of 24, shot back in the early 1990s. Apparently, CTU’s technology hadn’t come along quite as far as it has today. Seriously, I don’t know what’s funnier, the AOL and Prodigy references, or the old brick cordless phone.

These USB flash memory drives get their inspiration from aluminum soda cans. While they won’t actually quench your thirst, they will store plenty of your files when you pop their tops.

Pac-Man Text Adventure: Turn Left, Eat Dots
I know, I know. The year is 2007 and I’m writing two stories in a row about Pac-Man. But I really couldn’t resist this one. Pac-Txt is a great mashup between the classic 1980s arcade game and Zork.

What better way to get your day going than with little chocolate donuts? Check out these little USB flash drives that happen to look like Homer’s favorite high-carb treat. In addition to the traditional chocolate frosting, they’re also available in strawberry (my personal favorite) and some weird green shade too (moldy donut?)

Mac-O-Lanterns Light the Way This Halloween
What better way to use a couple of old Macintosh computers? All it took was a little orange paint for the “pumpkin”, and a JPEG viewer application for the face. This is the best use for old Macs since the original MacQuarium.
