Someone thought real life PacMan would be fun, thus Pac Manhattan was born.

Wee, crusing on a monowheel. Of course, if you hit a tree or something, you've got 1,100 lbs pushing you into it...

What if...robots fought our wars for us.

Mislabeled Korean Popeyes Commercial ;-)

Pics of the robotic cones. Although the pictures are tiny:-P

Hilarious auction for a wedding dress. "I found my ex-wife's wedding dress in the attic when I moved. She took the $4000 engagement ring but left the dress. I was actually going to have a dress burning party when the divorce became final, but my sister talked me out of it. She said, "That’s such a gorgeous dress. Some lucky girl would be glad to have it. You should sell it on EBay. At least get something back for it." So, this is what I’m doing. I’m selling it hoping to get enough money for maybe a couple of Mariners tickets and some beer." There's more and he even modeled it himself.

Using laser to paint images directly on the retina. This sounds like a really cool system, although it probably won't be affordable for normal consumers for at least 5 years.

The radio station that pranked Castro is going to pay the fine. In pennies.

Music industry sues 477 more computer users. And none of the lawsuits have actually gone to trial yet. They all seem to settle monetarily. Reminds me of the mob.

Robotic traffic cones swarm onto highways.

Stupid Burglars of the Day. "When officers arrived, they found that the front door had been kicked in and the cash register was stolen. But the roll of tape that records transactions in the register was unraveling behind the thieves as they ran away. Officers say they simply followed the 100-foot-tape into the bushes, where two people were hiding."

Toto. Huh?

Greedy studios make DVDs not so special. Theres going to be six, six versions of Kill Bill. And they still whine about movie downloads...

Chan Is Named U.N. Goodwill Ambassador. Awesome.

I gotta hand it to them, prank calling a communist dictator is hilarious. Its definitely worth the FCC fine.

Sometimes linux nerds go too far. Dead Badger?

It'd be nice if I could watch TV on my pda, for when we have to leave the twins' house early on Sundays.

Google gave me a Gmail account. I get a gig of storage and easier searching through email. It seems pretty cool right now. If you want to email me, its RStern at gmail.com. I was able to get this because of this.
