If you’re just too cheap to buy a Nintendo DSi or Sony PSP, here’s a handheld console that’s perfect for cheapskates.
The Conny PDC100 (Pocket Dream Console) is a portable 16-bit video game system that comes pre-loaded with 100 games.
Now you won’t find any blockbuster gaming titles loaded onto the Conny, but you will get such greats as Joe Ma 2, PickPic, Tanta Blocks and Hell Escape.
If you’ve been planning on buying both a desktop PC and a netbook, you might want to check out Dell’s Studio XPS deal: if you purchase the $1, 380 USD Studio XPS desktop, Dell will give you the option to get their Mini 9 netbook for only $99 USD.
When was the last time you had money? 1983? Then this wallet is just the thing for you!
Aside from placing a buck or two inside this wallet, you might also want to add your expired driver’s license or a picture of your ex.
Attention imaginary Satrianis, your iPhone app is in the house: Air Guitar by Inedible Software. You’ll be shredding the atmosphere in no time at all, thanks to the app’s simple yet intuitive interface.
Instructions will appear when you open the app; hold the iPhone sideways and a small, chubby fretboard appears.
Laptop owning cheapskates rejoice! Like all other laptop owners, I know that you’re concerned about the heat that your laptop generates, as well as the stress on your back from countless hours of being hunched down while using your laptop.
If you were to make a cake modeled after a fictional character, you’ll use your favorite character as a model, wouldn’t you? I guess the reverse applies to salads, because someone – someone with mad Force Carving powers – made a Jar Jar Binks salad just because he would “be able to slice into it without remorse.”
So he’s rid himself of remorse.
I’ve been doing my usual window shopping and thought I’d share some of the funny geek shirts I saw at Snorg Tees. They’re all made of “100% Super Soft” cotton and are priced at $19 each.
The Chemist shirt would have been much better if the ladies in it looked better.
Now there’s a sad geek shirt.
Chip Chick’s Ali was able to test a unit of Sansa’s yet to be released slotRadio, their answer to Apple’s iPod shuffle. A quick look at the slotRadio tells us that the only thing the two music players have in common is their small size.
Knitter/Yes Woman teriyakimoto‘s friend wanted a “knitted gas mask + hat to wear for winter bike trips to work”. I think it’s safe to say that this friend has quite specific needs. Teriyakimoto obliged, braving the depths of absurdity and the fact that she had no pattern to work with, and returned from her knitting basement with her awesome creation, which was already attached to her friend’s head.
Since she had no pattern, teriyakimoto had to measure her friend’s face to ensure that the mask and hat would fit snugly; they won’t save him from a biochemical attack, but they could at least keep his face warm.
The mask is attached to the hat with velcro (the black stripes on top) so he can easily remove it if he runs into bullies, or if he observes that he can’t breathe well while wearing the mask.
The Indian government is currently working with private companies as well as several “elite technology institutions” to develop a 500 rupee ($10 USD) laptop. In contrast, the OLPC laptop’s screen alone costs $28.50 USD. The Times Online says that the project is already three years in the making, and that the Indian government expects to have a prototype of the laptop within months.
A while back, I told you guys about an MP5 media player that didn’t seem to do anything more than any other conventional media player. So when I saw this new MP7 player, I tried not to get my hopes up too high for any kind of innovation.
From everything I can tell, this MP7 media player is about on par with every other PMP out there.
Do you regularly find yourself playing as Bill, Zoey, Louis or Francis? If so, you might want to check out SEIBEI’s Intramural Zombie Hunter Shirt, complete with logo and gore.
The shirt is somewhat customizable in that the back can either be “Athletic”, like the one you see above, or carry the slogan “Kill as many zombies and vampires as you can”.
This is too much. I don’t want to think about or see anything related to school or work while taking a bath. I want to sing badly and think of fun things. The atomic weight of Ununquadium is the arch-villain of fun things.
iSneaky: The White 13-inch MacBook has been upgraded, but for some unfathomable reason Apple’s not flaunting it. It absolutely definitely surely can’t be because of the newer, more expensive Aluminum MacBooks.
The most obvious upgrade is the GPU, which is now an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M (256MB), quite a substantial leap from the Intel GMA X3100 (144MB).
Wireless connectivity is the bees’ knees. In most cases however, you have to give up some of your connection speed for the convenience and neatness of being wireless. Sometimes it’s the router’s fault, but I think you’ll agree with me that the built-in receiver/transmitter in most computers, especially the ones in laptops, could be better.
Weird gadget time! This USB-powered fan has LEDs on its blades that can display colorful patterns or one of more than 30 preset text messages. Why more than 30? I don’t know. What’s it called? The “USB 30+ Light Show Fan.”
