  • HTC “Book” UI coming to a smartphone near you?
    by Mike
    Posted October 30th, 2009 at 12:01 pm
    Companies get ideas, services, and products patented everyday. If it's an idea, they may never even implement or use it in any current or future products. They're protecting themselves. Because of this, we can't take every patent we see literally or as if it is "set in stone" but instead more as "suggestions" as what could be coming in the future. With touchscreen's the new "it" feature on dumbphones, featurephones, and smartphones alike, distinguishing yourself from the playing field that...
  • Trapped in time with the Cassette Ties.

    There are tons of geeky clothing options available for those who just have to wear their personality on their sleeve. But what if you want to go above and beyond "normal geeks"? What if you want a piece of geeky clothing that will make even the most hardcore geeks step back, double take, and gawk? Well then, you my friend need a Cassette Tie. Constructed from a 50% tape cassette tape and 50% polyester blend, these ties are actually quite simple and pretty "low-tech". After turning the c...
  • Official BlackBerry Storm OS mutilates custom themes! [Update -- Fix!]
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 2:57 pm
    **Update: There's a fix folks. Find it here. Disappointment for sure. It looks as if a nasty bug in the official BlackBerry 5.0 software renders custom BlackBerry Storm themes ugly and not quite so functional. The image above is from Kyle over at BlackBerry Cool and foreshadows a tidal wave of disappointment for all new BlackBerry Storm users who pick up a model with 5.0 pre-installed as well as those who have already upgraded. In this particular issue, the phone in question is the ...
  • CyanogenMOD back with 4.2.1 stable release
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 10:38 am
    Looking back but a mere month ago, hearing the word "CyanogenMOD" meant sadness and sorrow as it was at that time Google sent Mr "Mod a cease-and-desist order because of his Android tinkering. Thankfully a common ground was reached and Cyanogen could continue on pleasing many Android tinkers across the world. To mark the anniversary, a new stable release of CyanogenMOD, ver. 4.2.1 has been released. Different from other versions however, this one will lack all of the Google branded/Google Exp...
  • Rubiks Cube Flash Drive: the ultimate home-made flash drive?
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 9:44 am
    If you're really feeling crafty this weekend, you may want to take in the wonderful display of geeky wonder that surrounds the Rubiks Cube Flash Drive. The process of making your own copy isn't very hard. It just takes a little bit of time. In this case, 3 days. Novelty flash drives are often crap full of crap with stupid designs and pathetic capacities. Custom made flash drives get a little bit of a break because, well, making your own flash drive is cool. It's even better when your c...
  • Make your own Steampunk Pumpkin
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 7:38 am
    You know, every time I stumble upon another steampunk-ified object I start to think "oh my god...again?" with a few exceptions here and there for truly impressive and unique ideas. Taking something as ordinary as a pumpkin is different from normal gadget/electronic versions of steampunk'd devices we've seen a lot of lately. But, in the spirit of Halloween and having a little fun, I decided to share this Steampunk Pumpkin with you. I admit, this metal clad pumpkin is actually pretty cool. I...
  • Working Batmobile comes w/ fully functioning flamethrower!
    by Mike
    Posted October 26th, 2009 at 8:04 pm
    Driving a beautifully crafted Batmobile replica through traffic will surely turn heads, garner whistles, and all sorts of accolades. It's not everyday you see a piece of super hero history driving down the road. Based off of a '76 Lincoln Continental, this Batmobile built by "Gotham Cruisers" isn't just some freak project. The Continental at it's core is a fully titled and authentic piece of auto history with the Batmobile clothing affixed on top ensuring at least some level of street legal c...
  • Scour the digital and analog streets with the PowerMac G4 Bike
    by Mike
    Posted October 24th, 2009 at 10:14 am
    Taking gadgets, old gadgets in particular, and creating new forms of art, machinery, and all out geekery is something that when executed correctly results in utter beauty. In the case of this modded PowerMac G4 Bike, it may not be beautiful in the traditional sense, though the fact that it draws your gaze upon its body and sucks you in ever deeper means something does it not? While this Mac went back in time, no longer to surf the digital streets, (as the innards are now occupied by a 49cc mot...
  • When in doubt, let the glowing triforce belt buckle lead the way.
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 11:59 am
    Tired of girls and all that drama they bring along? Pick yourself up a video game themed belt buckle, add an LED behind the buckle to give it a cool, nerdy glowing effect, and watch the girls flee from your presence. In all seriousness, this above custom buckle is pretty sweet. Better have your MIB shades w/ built in flashy thing because from the image above it appears this particular LED will scorch your retinas through and through. Those looking to make their own can find all the d...
  • Coolest Xbox mod ever gutted and submerged in mineral oil
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 10:31 am
    Really want to amaze your fronts with the coolest Xbox mod in the world? Alright then. All you need is game unit (in this case an original Xbox was used), a fish tank, and some mineral oil. You see, mineral oil doesn't have the same electronic slaying conductive properties as many other liquids do. Repeat: DO NOT try this with just any liquid! The Xbox pictured above is as your eyes can see, submerged in the liquidy mineral matter -- save for the hard drive and optical drive for obvious ...
  • Themes coming to BlackBerry App World Novermber 9th?
    by Mike
    Posted October 21st, 2009 at 8:47 am
    App World may be higher priced and not have as many apps as other mobile app stores, but one key feature that can truly set them apart from other app stores currently open. Themes. That's right. Many CrackBerry users find themes a great way to keep their device always feeling fresh and "like new". Besides, who wants to stare at the same layout, wallpaper, and icons all the time? I surely don't. While iPhone users have a snowball's chance in hell from getting official Apple sponsored themes...
  • VHS Mailbox: Go ahead…Stick it in.
    by Mike
    Posted October 19th, 2009 at 8:07 am
    DIY projects and geeky home touches are a dime a dozen. For every ten cool ideas that float by, one is truly unique, drawing a smile to my face and a moment of pondering. The VHS Mailbox is just that. An idea that seems so simple and makes so much sense should have come around sooner. Now that I've seen it, I'm not wasting any time. Bargain basement walmart VHS're mine... Gizmodo > Obsolete > There I Fixed It...
