    This is the fake, shadows are all wrong Photoshop job of a standing cat transformed into a medieval battle cat. That look in his eyes -- you can tell he's out for blood. Or maybe he's just out to eat a bunch of grass then throw up in the house later. What do I know, I'm not ... / Continue →

    This is the iStab, a 3-D printed iPhone case with a folding knife attached. That way you can accidentally Van Gogh yourself while answering a call. Or you could, I don't know, just carry a far more practical folding knife separately from your phone. That's what I do. It's n... / Continue →
