Think Geek is the top purveyor of the geeky goods that keep us nerds humming along at a happy pace. Whether it be t-shirts, gadgets or bacon flavored…well…everything, Think Geek provides. This year’s newest batch of products is top notch. Announced today, here’s the skinny on all the new gizmos and treats Think Geek will be selling out of by day’s end.
Hey, did you get it? Today is April 1st, better known as April Fool’s Day, making all of these awesome goodies hoaxes, pranks, fake-outs, but still great examples of things we’d love to see Think Geek selling in the future. And it could happen! Popular products like the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag and the iCade all began as April Fool’s Day pranks. Whose to say the same couldn’t happen with these hilarious ideas,
Angry Birds Pork Rinds are the ultimate in high protein snacking. Since the only other green meat we’ve encountered has been a breakfast meat paired with green eggs, we’re calling these “The Other Green Meat.” Much like green ham, you can eat Angry Birds Pork Rinds here or there. You can eat them anywhere. You can eat them with Red Leader. You can eat them from a bird feeder. You can eat them on a date. You can eat them on a Shirt Plate!
These crispy delicacies were painstakingly collected from the wreckage of exploded green pig flesh by the Pork Remnants Collectors Union 1337. After a bath in a vat of boiling oil, they are seasoned to perfection and packaged in snack sized bags. Break one open and taste the crisp, salty, savory flavor that only green pigs can produce. A truly succulent treat for the discerning mobile gamer.
So when we spotted this amazing Apple Store Playset from PLAYMOBIL™ we were admittedly in a bit of a conundrum. On the one hand, it’s a product designed for children much younger than ourselves. On the other hand, it’s a tiny representation of the store which sells us all the shiny Apple goodies we can’t resist. Then we noticed that the PLAYMOBIL™ iStore includes amazingly tiny iPhones, Macbooks, and iPads. Our resolve began to waver. A quick peek at the miniature Genius Bar and we were feeling a bit woozy. Then we saw the tiny Steve Jobs presenting in the Keynote Theater on the top floor and that was it. Our wallets popped out faster than you can say Jonathan Ive and we plunked down whatever money was needed to own this amazing playset.
Of course, once we had the playset, we had to get the optional Line Pack to simulate our own exciting Apple product launches. Since it comes with a tiny Woz on a tiny Segway, it was a no-brainer. We decided that Apple & PLAYMOBIL™ together is the most unlikely and awesome collaboration ever. It changes everything.

Death affects us in different ways. Some of us cry. Some of us isolate ourselves. Some of us turn into raging psycho hosebeasts who throw things against the wall. No matter how you grieve, you’ll need to get out your death shrouds today. Sony has killed the cassette Walkman.
I know, I know. Some of you readers don’t even remember a time when music wasn’t on an iPod or cell phone. But those of us aged 25+ counted on the Walkman to entertain us during those loooooong drives to Myrtle Beach with our parents, or to share tunes with our best friends (TWO headphone jacks, bitches!), or to up our cool factor as we bobbed our heads to the music while passing the black-clad rebels who were smoking behind the school.
But just as video killed the radio star, digital music players have all but killed mobile cassette players. Mobile CD players (which I still see daily on the city bus) surely aren’t far behind.
So as Japan and the world buys up the final batch of official Walkmen this year, let’s take a moment to remember our readers’ finest moments in Walkman history. Did you share a jack (um, headphone jack, sickos) with your 10th-grade crush? Did you wear out your cassette copy of “Please, Hammer, Don’t Hurt ‘Em?” Let us know in the comments, or tell us on Twitter with the hashtag #WalkmanNB.

So today I wake up, which already puts me in a terrible mood, load some of my favorite computer news sites, and everything on those sites is basically related to Apple. Apple… really? They apparently came out with a cool mouse, some new laptop, and a new iMac. Last time I used an iMac (I was forced to), was back in high school graphics class, around 2003. What a chore it was to use those things. They were slower than a giant vat of molasses trying to spill uphill in Antarctica. It took for-fucking-ever to make simple, immature edits to a Home Depot sign so it would read “Homo Depot”… a “project” I took upon on my own and actually got praise for, even though my teacher was shaking his head (I rule). (more…)
Iphone Savior has done it. They have taken Apple’s overpriced expensive gear and made it affordable for a the everyday common man…or homeless guy who steals an Iphone and wants a dock…
The New York Times has reported a slew of recent Iphone bombings…No not a terrorist attack! But Iphones and Itouches overheating and exploding! Like a bad horror movie, YOU….could be next.
Now I would like to a moment to rip on all of you who abandoned your phones for App Insanity. Yea Bitches! Watch your asses, your phone that is absolutely cooler than mine, is more likely to kill you than mine!
