Photo of the Day: iPhone, Meet Windows

Photo of the Day: iPhone, Meet Windows
Apparently, those iPhone demo kiosks in AT&T stores are wolves in sheep’s clothing… Here’s an interesting thought: When you turn a Windows XP machine on it’s side, does it become an Apple? Apparently, these kiosks are really running on Dell machines and Samsung displays.

Cardboard Boom Box Really Works

Cardboard Boom Box Really Works
This boom box has everything you’d expect in a portable stereo: an amplifier, speakers, even an iPod dock. But this one is made out of cardboard. While most portable stereos aren’t particularly waterproof, this one doesn’t stand a chance in a rainstorm.

T-Shirt of the Day: Segway Beta

T-Shirt of the Day: Segway Beta
Me thinks this is the absolute funniest t-shirt design I’ve seen in a while… Indie Tech’s brilliant Segway Beta T-Shirt is a must have for all hipsters, hipster-doofuses, geeks, dweebs, nerds and generaly cool people. I’ll be plunking down my credit card tonight for one of these $15 shirts.

Are You Looking at My Pac-Man Headgear?

Are You Looking at My Pac-Man Headgear?
I can’t imagine who the target market is for these ridiculous Pac-Man hats. While they might be cute on a 3-year old, for some reason, I don’t think they’d know what Pac-Man was. Besides, Namco says these are ADULT size. For those of you 30 and 40-somethings who do love the little yellow dot gobbling fiends, I suppose you could wear one of these $30 Pac-Man plush hats.

Classic Apple Moment: Newton Handwriting Recognition

Classic Apple Moment: Newton Handwriting Recognition
Here’s a fun little retro vid clip I came across earlier today. The 9-second clip from an old Simpsons episode is short, sweet, and really funny. With all the recent iPhone buzz, it’s kind of fun to look back at Apple’s earlier, less than successful entry into the handheld market.

Hand Knit Pac-Man and Pals

Hand Knit Pac-Man and Pals
Check out these wacky crocheted 3-dimensional versions of Pac-Man and his cohorts. Artist Carey Huffman hand knit these little versions of the yellow dot gobbler along with his ghostly pals Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde. She’s even gone to the trouble to create this pattern guide for you to create your own.

The Real Reason the Xbox 360 Failed in Japan

The Real Reason the Xbox 360 Failed in Japan
Ok, I know they don’t care for the same sort of games we do in the US and UK, but I think this commercial for the Xbox 360 really sums up everything that’s wrong about Microsoft’s presence in Japan. Or maybe it’s just weird enough to be right for the market – who knows? Now wasn’t that a knee-slapping good time?

Video Games Ruined My Life

Video Games Ruined My Life
The award for T-shirt of the week has to go to this die hard gamer’s tee from Threadless contributor Lawrence Pernica. The simply designed shirt uses a retro bitmap font and a couple of game “life” indicators to express this simple statement: “Video games ruined my life.

Viral Video of the Day… Parappa Dude

Viral Video of the Day… Parappa Dude
I was wandering through the cultural wasteland known as YouTube tonight when I came across this masterpiece… Apparently, this guy was participating in a contest to win a trip in some sort of Parappa the Rapper contest to celebrate of the launch of the new game for the PSP.

The Big Shiny Candy-Like Panic Button

The Big Shiny Candy-Like Panic Button
Sometimes you just have one of those stressful days where nothing goes your way. Now you can take out your frustrations using this device that attaches to your computer. Just open up the cover on the USB Stress Panic Button and smack it with your fist.

Never Put Your Money in This Bank

Never Put Your Money in This Bank
I’m always wondering about those suspicious looking automatic teller machines you see in every little bodega and convenience store these days. You know… Will my ATM card get eaten? Will they steal my PIN number? Will it wipe all the money out of my bank account?

Alien Abduction Lamp is Just Brilliant

Alien Abduction Lamp is Just Brilliant
Every once in a blue moon I come across a concept that’s just amazing, and this is one of those times. Combining great design and a sense of humor is tough to pull off, but Artist Lasse Klein’s new Abduction Lamp manages it with ease.

This gadget is designed with one simple, yet important purpose in mind – to produce the perfect Cup O’ Noodles. The $25 device offers a timer that counts down the exact amount of time required to perfect your low-budget dinner of champions.

Mario’s Real Life: Not a Pretty Sight

Mario’s Real Life: Not a Pretty Sight
This clip features the real life story of the famous plumber’s addiction to those little magic mushrooms… The video, by P0YKPAC is a sad, sad tale, but the (mildly NSFW) clip is really quite funny. Mario’s struggles with the “stuff” lead him down a path of self destruction and it all ends with tragic consequences.

Super Edible Mario

Super Edible Mario
Some enterprising baker has whipped up this bit of kitchen goodness: a Super Mario inspired pixel cookie… Do you suppose it tastes more like mushrooms or coins? [via The Tanooki via Smidigt]
