  • Garbage Bin From the Future: Keeps Smells Away

    We don’t really like garbage bins. They end up being smelly and leaky most of the time. You have to clean the garbage can out so many times that it gets annoying in the end. Plus, the smells can be ghastly. There is nothing worse than coming home from work and realizing that the first […]

  • Solar Umbrella: Charges Your Gadgets While You’re Having Fun in the Sun

    Imagine all those great summer afternoons or weekends that are spent in your garden relaxing, wouldn’t it be great if they’d find a way to harness all that solar energy? The trouble with solar panels is that they require a large surface to generate power. Also, they are frightfully expensive. Now, it will be possible […]

  • Ergodex DX1: The Ultimately Customizable Keyboard

    We’ve heard lots about the Optimus Maximus keyboard. It’s really cool, but it just costs way to much to be useful. That’s why we think that the this keyboard is perfect for people working from home, especially designers and graphic artists. It’s customizable and it’s something that we’ve never seen before. It just makes plain […]

It’s hard to keep things organized under your desk and near power plugs. Even if they start out organized, they will usually get messy after a while. The Dotz plug […]

  • Balloon Music Speaker: Sharing Music Has Never Been Easier

    If you are trying to share music with your friends, you’d need some kind of a dock. The problem is that most docks are bulky and it’s not something that you’d take with you when you are going out of your home. Now, sharing your music has never been easier thanks to this balloon music […]

  • Disturbing Dooce

    I don’t know what’s more disturbing about these photos on Heather Armstrong’s site. The fact that she posted them or that she took them and thought they were funny. There is something wrong about them. They must be racist in some fashion, though I can’t really put my finger on the exact offending feature.

  • End of May Books

    Still awaiting a sci-fi book haul (The Prefect, Zoe’s Tale, The Temporal Void, Anathem). With no school, I tend to devour books very quickly. I borrowed 4 books last week from my mom and finished them by Friday. I borrowed a book from a friend and it was finished by Sunday. I bought three hardcover […]

  • 3 Year Blog Anniversary

    I started this blog on the 24th of May 2006. Last year, I skipped mentioning it. This year, I’ve spent the weekend away from the computer. Well, I spent last Sunday and Monday away. Today, I was back in front of the computer. In three years, I’ve posted 5,148 posts. You’ve left 4,358 comments. You’ve […]
