    Say that one ten times fast. As Mac's become more widespread and more popular, seeing someone sitting across form you with that glowing white label just isn't what it used to be. But you don't have to blend in with everyone else. Many who join club Mac may be hip, but only a few are true geeks. So why not show it with the Macbook Lego Logo Holder decal. Featuring a nifty little LEGO guy with a perfectly formed club hand holding your Apple logo out back. Hi-tech it is not. Cool -- very mu...

    Try as I might, I couldn't come up with any humorous tagline. No clever organization of words. And not a single ounce of creativity could be coaxed from my mind. Is that bad? No. Simply a case of writers block. Still, you can't help but actually wanting to coin some funny phrase after looking at the Star Wars Backlit Coffee Table. This piece of artwork is truly "one of a kind". However, a rather rare ocurance in the art world is the bargain basement price this coffee table is *currentl...
  • BlackBerry development just became a lot more interesting…

    The BlackBerry Developer Conference kicked off today and RIM personnel didn't waste any time getting to the goods. For starters, OpenGL ES support is finally coming to the BlackBerry platform (OS 5.0+). If you didn't know, OpenGL is what gives modern smartphones such as the iPhone it's amazing graphics in such small packages. But what good is powerful hardware without software? Again RIM answers, though this answer is somewhat a surprise. Since the beginning of BlackBerry theme developm...
  • Crawl inside the skin of Snow Leopard [Hidden features]

    I'm a tinkerer by heart. I love to fine tune my gadgets and software until they break -- then I do it all over again. Nature of the beast I guess. Mac OS X has usually been a rather simple more simplistic OS in that without help from 3rd parties, it is generally pretty involved to make any system tweaks. It doesn't matter if you actually don't know how or don't have time, I'm sure if a solution existed to drastically reduce your time spent tweaking you'd be all for it. What about something ...
  • Ride in style: The Pac-Man Car

    When riding in the Pac-Man car, try not to ram other colored cars in hopes of eating them with your grill. While in Pac-Man/video game world, such moves are encouraged and aid in the advancement of Pac-Man, in reality world with modern physics and such, doing so is likely to result in multiple headaches for you. The individual who created the Pac-Man car shown above definitely went all out. Every square inch of this car is in some form or another Pac-Man-ized. I'd drive it down the road wo...
  • 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 ...
  • Rest your cheeks upon the Tetris Chair…
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 8:07 am
    Oh how I'd love to put my rear end on a piece of gaming history. Such thoughts I've had many a time, often dreaming of ways to transform my nerdy ways into more physical objects. Helping me on this never ending quest is the Tetris Chair. Killing two birds with one stone if you will, my thoughts are turning into physical objects and I'm turning my humble abode into a geek cave. The chair was designed by Gabriel Cañas and is so far a one-off. (read: not for sale...yet). I surely hope Garb...
  • 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...
  • 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.

    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...
  • “Silent Night” skin now compatible with iTunes 9!

    Posted October 15th, 2009 at 8:31 pm
    I'll admit, Apple does a pretty decent job designing a world class UI. Their latest work in Snow Leopard while not radically different from Leopard in any way, is still somehow able to wow me. Though, their taste may not be your taste. Even still, some simply like to change stuff up every once in a while. Especially those who work on their computers day in and day out, starring a the same background, the same theme, the same icons can just get old. Lately I've been into darker themes. Wa...
