Sony’s Walkman S540 Includes Built-in Speakers


Despite looking like Sony has struck a deal with Disney (the button configuration looks like Mickey Mouse) the Walkman S540 appears to be a relatively formidable PMP.  Launching next month, the 10.2mm thick body sports a pair of speakers and a battery life that Sony claims is good for 42...

Poop Trap: A Colostomy Bag For Your Dog (videos)


Holy crap!  Awestruck doesn’t even begin to describe my reaction to the Poop Trap.  I think we’ve all toyed with the idea of a colostomy bag for pooches, but why does this look so wrong? A harness wraps around the dog’s body and under its tail is a removable draw...

Cigarette Shaped Butane Lighter


I don’t smoke, but when I did (back in high school to be cool) I’d always be fumbling through my pockets in search of a lighter.  Then I saw what the other cooler smoking kids were doing, which was placing the lighter directly in the cigarette pack.  A bit unpractical...
