After showing a few images of goats hanging out on tree branches to my wife (check it out on flickr), she sent me a link to a Mudfooted gallery of goats on the side of a near-vertical dam. The Alpine Ibex goats are climbing the dam wall to lick to salt off the higher-up stones. […]
Even though Fall has just begun, the holiday shopping season is almost upon us. We’ve already seen Christmas items popping up at some stores and even a few building decorations as well. In just a few short weeks, many major retailers will start rolling out their holiday gift displays, choc-full of new products and innovations. […]
Apparently Netflix has receive so much negative feedback over their pricing changes that they’re spinning off their DVD mail rental service into a new separate company, called Qwikster.
Leatherman’s Juice series of multi-tools are smaller and more casual in appearance than the models most people think of when you mention the brand. Despite their smaller and more pocketable size, Juice multi-tools pack plenty of tools and functions between their handles. Every Juice model features combination pliers, a stainless steel body, anodized aluminum handle […]
(This is a guest post by my wife Janice, who made some seriously delicious guacamole last week!) Are you looking to finally make your own guacamole? Here’s how: The first time I made guacamole, it wasn’t exactly a hit. I had followed a recipe, but the guacamole just didn’t taste the way we had expected. […]
Somehow, the creative minds in Hollywood decided to explore the idea of making more board game-inspired movies. Are board games even popular anymore? While this new Battleship trailer looks reasonably promising, I can’t quite take it seriously knowing what the plot is based off of. The only board game-inspired movie that comes to mind is […]
Lockheed Martin’s engineers, inspired by maple seeds (you know, the ones that twirl as they descend to the ground), created the Samarai Flyer, a micro-aircraft that features a single asymmetrical wing. The Samarai weighs less than half a pound and can take off vertically, hover, and land, all the while streaming video from a rotating […]
Due to lackluster sales, HP has discontinued their new-ish webOS TouchPad tablet last week. A few news sources reported that around the same Best Buy was seeking to return many unsold units back to the company. It looks like something was worked out as both HP and Best Buy have been practically giving the TouchPad […]
Google announced early this morning that they are acquiring Motorola for $12.5 billion. This move appears to be primarily motivated by Google’s need to strengthen their patent portfolio in the face of anti-competitive threats from Microsoft, Apple, and other companies.

It used to be that you could only find Astronaut Ice Cream at a local museum, science center, or similarly themed location. Then, a few online stores started carrying the freeze dried ice cream goodness, but for $4 a bag or more. Now, they’re available via Amazon – 10 packs for <$25. I already sent […]
I first saw this a month or two ago, but felt it’s worth sharing, even though you may have already seen it. The best part, in my opinion, was when Leanard Nimoy whips out the nunchucks! What brought this up? A conversation with a colleague about the recent Thundercats cartoon reimagination on Cartoon Network, and […]
With my trusty Sony earbuds down for the count, I wondered what would fail next. Well, it seems that my Canon MP800 multi-function inkjet printer decided to kick the bucket. I received a 6A00 error last night, complete with a flashing green and amber alarm.
Nearly a year ago, I mentioned how my Sony Fontopia EX71 earbuds refuse to die. Well, that is no longer true as the right earbud has failed. This makes perfect sense. A few months ago I spotted the earbuds at a ridiculously low price over at Amazon, and regretfully neglected to pick up a backup pair. […]
Full scoop over at Entertainment Weekly here. I’m not sure if I’m a fan of Spidey’s new look, although the costume does have somewhat of a high-tech look to it, more so than in the previous movies.
