Your brain never looked so delicious

By on

Don’t worry, those aren’t real brains, but are perfect for the next time that a zombie comes up to your front door (before you shoot it). Flickr user xsomnis has made these Brain Cupcakes, which are just red velvet raspberry cupcakes with French vanilla cream cheese frosting with the brain being made out of chocolate. That blood you see is just caramel sauce with food colouring. If you are going […]

Guy threatens to shoot iPhone after plagued with problems

By on

Though the iPhone can be a wonderful device, it still can be plagued with problems, like freezing in the middle of your Monopoly or Poker game, or even browsing the internet. Turns out, however, that these problems can also make a person want to shoot a bullet through it. In Cincinnati, Donald Goodrich – a 38 yea old man – walked into his local Apple Store and apparently told an […]

The USB device that make you scream (when it cuts your foot off)

By on

Despite it’s name, the i.Saw is not a product from Apple (that could be why there is a dot in the name), but is actually a potential hazard to drop on your foot. You see, this product is a USB-powered chainsaw. Yes, you read that correctly – a USB powered chainsaw. The good thing, since it’s on a USB, it works on PCs and Macs – something that the Zune […]

Show your Photoshopping love

By on

Got to love the website Etsy, bringing in talented creators of stuff that we would never see in Target or Myer. But, now, we found something for an application? This is a pillow for that blue Photoshop icon that someone has recreated, and you have to admit that it makes you want to buy it. This 100 percent hand crafted pillow is also machine washable, and you can also get […]

Microphone that allows people not to hear you sing…

By on

Japan is the home of the things that we most likely would never find at any department store in Australia, but this might be the gift for someone who just loves to sing to their hearts content – and save you in having your hearing checked. Introducing the “Unfussy Kara OK” microphone, that promises to allow you, despite looking like a vacuum cleaner attachment, to sing and have that voice […]

A new way to talk to random strangers on the internet?

By on

Introducing Omegle, a new site that allows you lets you “Talk to strangers!” – and that’s its tagline. For some reason, I have this creepy feeling about the website. Not because of the fact that you could potentially meet paedophiles and people who have just weird fetishes, but the fact is that you can lie. Heck, I just lied about being not Asian. But then again, that’s not really an […]

For Sale: License plate with DOT COM

By on

Ever wanted to get a .com domain? Well, try a domain registrar; because this might be not what you want; especially with its heavy price tag. A NSW man has decided to sell off his “DOT COM” license plate (again, it is from NSW), and is selling it on eBay with a minimum bid of AU$400,000. That’s very high. Unfortunately, or fortunately for some of you who are interested, there […]

A wink is no longer for flirting

By on

A blink and a smile can tell your gadgets everything, and we don’t mean lying. According to Physorg, a Japanese inventor has invented a headphone-like gadget, called the “Mimi Switch”, which has tiny sensors that can read the movements from your facial expressions and use them to turn on your iPod or start the washing machine. “You will be able to turn on room lights or swing your washing machine […]

Photoshop CS4 on a 3.5-inch floppy disk?

By on

Remember the days when almost everything was done on the floppy disk? And those times when a program would be around 4 or 5 disks to install it on your computer, before the days of the CD-ROM, then the DVD-ROM, then downloading it on the web (illegally, not that we condone such actions)? Well, thanks to Antrepo Designs, you can now find out what your favourite software from this era, […]

Speakers in a mannequin – now who saw that coming?

By on

  This is a speaker system, built into a mannequin. Impressive; but not impressive where you plug in your audio source at (and because of restrictions placed on our hosting provider, we can’t really talk about in depth). But wait, is that a Zune? Too bad it’s not for sale.

Nerdy glasses just for the nerd inside of you

By on

These aren’t normal glasses, and they aren’t glasses at all. This gadget, while it would most likely make you a nerd if you hold them up to your face, is a 2GB USB bookmark – and yes, I know what you are thinking “What the Hell?” about this gadget. Apparently, its “geek chic silhouette” is to bring a iconic tribute to “nerd culture”, which is something I don’t understand. It […]

Seriously… this is a hands-free device

By on

CES 2009 : If you think we are kidding, we are not. This is the Cell-Mate, and this is a “hands-free” device – or so its says to get pass the laws that 13 states have introduced that forbid you to use your phone without a hands-free device while driving your car. While it may look like a giant headband that just holds your phone on your face – it’s […]

Something an iPhone can’t do : RAZR protects guy from bullet

By on

A New Orleans man is being reported to have been saved by his Motorola RAZR when a .45 calibre bullet hit him on the chest last Saturday, when he was mowing the lawn. While it did not kill him, the RAZR was destroyed, and it is being reported that the bullet may have come from the woods near his own home. The man, Ronald Richard, usually clips his phone to […]

Adelaide man tries to pay bill with a drawing

I came across this today while browsing the web. Adelaide Man, David Thorne tried to pay for a $200+ bill with a drawing of a spider. I have copy and pasted the email conversation.

If you have already made this […]

Porn leads to depression? New survey shows “alarmingly high” results

By on

The India Times, citing a Swinburne University of Technology study in Melbourne, is reporting that web users who go online to sex, fetish or swinging sites are more likely to have depression, anxiety and stress – while also revealing that well-educated men aged between 18 to 80 indulge in this kind of ‘pleasure’, spending just over 12 hours on the sites each week. They also participated in cyber sex with […]
