Imagine being able to hop into a booth like Superman and “call” up your wife and kids, or some friends via Skype. That’s the plan they have in store for you. Just launched is the first of its kind in Estonia’s Tallinn Airport. You can now connect to all your Skype buddies via this wonderful device....
This is not normally something I’d post here but it’s just so darned impressive that I had to share. From the guys at Zebra Imaging, this is a color hologram they created with data from Google Sketchup. The model is of downtown Seattle. The building heights in this hologram get up to about 10 inches....
The Japanese love their Twitter and they just got another cool way use it. Toy maker Takara Tomy has announced Twimal (short for “Twitter Animal”), a super-cute toy “pet” that can read your tweets out loud. The white version does this with a female voice, while the blue Twimal uses a male voice Takara Tomy...
When I grab a biscotti for my morning meal I like to enjoy it with a hot cup of coffee. There really is nothing else like it. I couldn’t imagine having anything else with it. Nancy from Sparkle Markets seems to differ on this. I’ve heard some bad Freudian Slips before, but this may be...
So you say you’ve got a Scrooge McDuck safe worth of gold coins laying around? What better way to throw it all away then on an $8,000,000 Apple iPad 2.   From designer Stuart Hughes of Liverpool, comes this huge waste for your hard earned cash.

The new magazine is called Think Quarterly, and covers things Google regularly sends business customers “via email...
I’m pretty sure by now you’ve seen the video of Casey Heynes. The Australian kid who was always being picked on…until one day a bully decided to take it a little too far and Casey retaliated. The school ended up suspending both students as they have a strict no fighting policy but since the video...
Those World of Warcraft players can get pretty fanatical, but this is one of the more extreme cases I’ve seen. Granted there are quite a few freak outs on YouTube. Apprently one guy loves his character so much that after having his account banned he posted this on Craigslist. “I got my WoW account banned...
With the popularity of Twitter and Facebook and with their constant stream of information, it’s only natural that a lot of use get our “breaking news” from such sites. A message can spread on Twitter faster than CNN can get the story, write it and post it. This happened recently with Wyclef Jean (of the...
We’ve all been witness to a bad commercial before. How about those darned class action lawsuit ads that are always popping up during my Jeopardy! program.
