    Gorenje has put together this Swarovski crystal studded refrigerator in black or aluminum. Because really, who doesn't need their fridge covered in Swarovski crystals? Anything less would be an insult to your week-old pizza. And besides, what else are you gonna spend that mon... / Continue →

    To help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Star Wars the United States Postal Service will be introducing custom mailboxes wrapped in R2-D2 graphics. Although I don't know what they're gonna do with them, since the second they're actually put on the street they'd just get stolen... / Continue →

    This is a time lapse digital painting done in Photoshop of Thom Yorke from Radiohead. The actual drawing took four hours to complete, but you can see the whole thing done here in 7 minutes. And if you fast forward it you might even be able to get it down to 30 seconds. Which, c... / Continue →

    The lobby of Microsoft's conference center apparently has free Microsoft sodas. I tried selling my own personal sodas once, but turns out urine flavor isn't as popular as you'd think. Even if it's made out of real urine. Go figure.... / Continue →

    Toy company Asuka Kobo has created an iPod case out of wood. Which looks pretty neat, I guess, but completely goes against the clean sleek look of the iPod. People buy iPods to be hip, not to look like an old grandpa. They might as well include some dentures and an etching of A... / Continue →
