Why sinister? Because the sole purpose of “The...


William Ultrasonic Humidifier Is Very Handsome


Winter is fast approaching, and with it come the staples of the holiday season. You know what I’m talking about – massive overindulgence in every habit known to man, including the turning way up of every heater in the house. But one only need to look at deserts and other...

Never Buy This For Your Kid. Never. (video)


Cost of making your kid impervious to bullies? $21,600. Possible cost to society resulting from outfitting a young boy with a Japanese built 400lb hydraulic mech-suit? Does not compute. Children are not the mellowest of creatures, and boys especially are given to nightmarish fantasies and terrifying outbursts. So we must...

Sony is feeding on scraps at the e-reader table, and their compact PRS-350 is not going to change anything about that. What they were going for was a travel-sized idiot-proof e-reader to win over people who don’t already own one. What they ended up with was a device that gets...
