Conficker Virus Launches, Nothing Happens

Can you say Y2K? Good, ’cause a lot of people must be thinking about that right now. That stupid virus you’ve been reading about, Conficker, was supposed to activate itself today and cause half the Internet to go down. Hell would enter Earth, our first born would die and blogging would become a well-respected profession. Yeah, nothing happened. It’s a ...

RIM Launches Blackberry App World

This is no April Fool’s prank, my friends. In the wee hours of this morning, RIM switched on its competitor to Apple’s App Store, the Blackberry App World (how creative). You’ll be able to browse top apps, find new ones and hope someone was able to make a half-decent program in such little time. RIM is saying that by the ...

Snow White Apple Macbook Case Mod

Why is it that women just can’t resist tainted fruit? First, Eve came along and fucked up immortality for the whole human race (thanks a lot, Satan), and then Snow White, for some reason, thought some random apple from a poorly disguised farmer would be totally wholesome and delicious. I think the lesson we’ve learned here is never to accept ...

It Sucks: Mega Man II Hits The iPhone

I realize that Steve Jobs is really psyched about turning the iPhone and iPod Touch into fully-fledged gaming platforms. That’s great. There are tons of fantastic games for these devices, produced by powerhouse studios and publishers like Electronic Arts. Unfortunately, the classic NES title Mega Man II is not fantastic.

Computer Chip Ring: Bling, Bling Mothatrucka

This ring is so pimp, like a geeky version of Xzibit, or whoever the kids are listening to these days. The 1981 �ATARI Ring� is, as you might be able to guess from the title, a replica of the original chip used in the ATARI gaming system. 18 gold karats of geekdom. While most men would much rather be playing ...

Thanko USB Cigarette: Mmm, Mmm Smooth

Doesn’t it suck when you get stuck with a shitty new roommate? You know the type I mean. The ones who demand that we can’t puff away at smokes all day indoors like we’re accustomed to. And we just got our brand new lighter too! Who do they think they are? The government? As they usually do, Thanko has come ...

Dell Offering PC With 192GB of RAM

Fuck the hard drive. That shit is so 1997. Why bother with storage when you can just call up dell for a PC and store everything in the RAM. What, you haven’t heard? Dell is offering the Precision T7500 workstation, which comes with abnormal amount of RAM slots (16 to be specific). Each slot can take a PC10600 stick up ...
