Screwpop keyring tool

Posted by: Dave In: Design|DIY|Gadgets

I love stumbling across good industrial design.  And when the industrial design involves a tool, it’s even better.  I follow several tool/gadget blogs and stumbled into this while reading one of my favorite tool blogs, Toolmonger. It’s pretty amazing how much planning and effort goes into a little tool like this.  You may see a […]

If you’re wondering which side to butter…might I suggest The Dark Side. (Sorry, the Star Wars puns are flying out of me tonight.) Link (via Neatorama)

That’s snot what I want!

This classy nose-shaped shampoo & conditioner dispenser can be yours for a mere $18 bucks. The idea of rubbing snot into your hair seems to be marketable product. Who knew? Product link (via boingboing) – Dave

The Sno-Baller

Posted by: Dave In: Gadgets|Shopping

Friends south of the Mason-Dixon line will not truly understand the importance this wonderful device. However, all of my north eastern and mountain state pals will see just how awesome the Sno-Baller would be in a snowball fight. I would venture a guess that three children with one Sno-Baller could easily defeat five children without […]

Hello Kitty toilet paper dispenser

Posted by: Dave In: Gadgets|Humor|Weird

When nothing else seems to do the job, why not give this Hello Kitty Toilet Paper Dispenser a try? The Hello Kitty toilet paper dispenser can be pre-program so that your exact favorite length of toilet paper will appear when pressing the button. Hell yeah, that sounds fantastic to me! It’s a little pricey at […]

Buncha new iPods

Posted by: Dave In: Apple|Gadgets|Technology

Apple released a bunch of new iPods today.  They look pretty neat.  I wonder if the iPhone will lose any sales to the new “iPod Touch”?  They seem pretty similiar.  The iPod Classic (the name gives me flashbacks to Coke Classic) just got a huge bump in storage to 160GB and the iPod Nano is […]

iPhone disassembled

Forty-five minutes after the coveted iPhone went on sale, the folks at iFixit have taken one completely apart.  Pretty confidently, I must say. Link (via Technorati) -Dave

I, Phone.

Posted by: Dave In: Communication|Gadgets|Technology

Part of me thinks the whirlwind of hype surrounding the iPhone is absolutely ridiculous. Another part of me (the nerdy, gadget-loving part) wants one anyhow. Will the iPhone revolutionize mobile communication as all of the commericals promise? Who knows. However, there are phones out today that can do all of the things the iPhone is […]

OK, this is a pretty cool service.  Do you want to get out of a cell phone contract to get that new iPhone? You can swap your cell contract with someone looking to do the same at CellSwapper. This is a genius idea.  I’m surprised someone hasn’t come up with it sooner. -Dave

  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
