Jaguars look great and it’s nice to know that they can go very fast as well. This new XKR was made to celebrate Jaguar’s ‘R’ division 25th anniversary. The resulting car is track-focused, but street-legal. It will not only blow your socks off, but your face as well.
How many people do you know in your city? Hello Lamp Post won’t exactly let you meet or talk with anyone specific, but it will allow you to listen to the thoughts, comments, and other random ramblings of others who live in the city.
It’s about time somebody started painting UK phone boxes in TARDIS blue. My only question is, what took so long? This is now happening in the city of Leeds. They are repainting their red phone boxes in a shade of TARDIS blue.
So it’s official: Prince William and Kate are having a baby. To some, it’s great news. To the curious, it’s information worth knowing. To the vast population, it’s merely news that doesn’t have anything to do with them.
Well, here’s an odd little story that happened over in jolly old England recently. A woman living in Paignton, Devon started hearing strange clanking noises on the roof of her house, and decided to go outside and have a look.
It was a strange sight on London’s Westminster Bridge when people saw Daleks rolling about, getting ready to exterminate everyone. The procession included four generations of Daleks, showing how the mutant creatures had evolved during the years.

I really like Angry Birds, even if it does occasionally frustrate me and I fear the bill I will get from the in app purchases my daughter made. We have seen some plush toys made in the likeness of the Angry Birds characters before, but those were seemingly for US geeks only.
I am willing to bet that whatever country a geek lives in, if they are into tablets and don’t already own an iPad, the Apple gadget is high on their Christmas wish list. If you are a UK geek that wants an iPad 3G and wants a data plan to go with it, you need to head to Orange.
The iPad is sure to be at the top of holiday wish lists for geeks all around the world this year. If you are shopping for the iPad in the UK, some new deals are expected to go official today with Orange and T-Mobile (aka Everything Everywhere).
The world is presently going bonkers over the World Cup, which happens every four years. The US did really well in a recent match, which was promptly reenacted with LEGOs to commemorate the momentous occasion.
I don’t know what’s more amazing, this little stop-motion reenactment or the fact that the USA is actually doing pretty well in the World Cup this year.
He’s not the Godfather of Soul, but Nottingham, England’s own James Brown is a bit popular as well, not as an artist but as a geek. You see, Brown collects vacuum cleaners. The 30-year old Brown has been collecting Roomba’s ancestors since he was eight years old, when he found one in the trash, and was insanely pumped up that the machine roared to life when he plugged it in at home.
