If Jabba the Hutt celebrated Christmas the celebration would probably include a bikini-clad princess dancing around, lots of frogs in jars to eat, and a bounty hunter delivering a carbonite encased Han Solo as a gift. This really cool Christmas ornament has surfaced at Oddee and it rocks.
As it is the holiday season when I write this post, I suggest thinking about something like this for the person who says they want nothing, couldn't possibly see the value in another gift, that person who you cannot possibly satisfy. How about tea with MC Hammer? You TOO can do wild and crazy things like a Trap and Skeet Shoot with the co-founder of MySpace! All of this is available (at a cost) via this fabulous new place by the name of Skyara. They've got the two experiences I just mentioned up for promoting this startup - other events cost anywhere from $10 to over $100.
What in the world?! Gorillaz, basically the greatest cartoon band of all time, are planning on releasing an album recorded entirely on an iPad FOR FREE on Christmas day. Gorillaz real-world frontman Damon Albarn told UK music paper NME: “I’ve made it on an ipad – I hope I’ll be making the first record on an iPad. ... I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record. ... It’s ironic, being the sort of technophobe and Luddite that I am.” Super fun gifts are being released up until Christmas via an Advent Calendar on Gorillaz website.
Christmas is here and if your kids are waiting to see Santa at the mall and the line is just too long Vonage has your back. You can call Santa for free if you are a Vonage customer by dialing 1-700-CALL-SANTA from a Vonage phone in your home to hear a message from the big guy himself.
Up until today, you'd have had to own an Android-based device in order to access you some sweet winter holiday Angry Birds fun, but now, iDevice users can join in on the fun as well. This lovely addition to the Angry Birds family of games will run you 99 cents if you're buying it for your iPhone or iPod Touch, or $1.99 if you'd like the HD version for your iPad. Users who've already purchased the Halloween version are reporting they're able to upgrade to Seasons for free.
Aww, isn't that cute? Lego superstar Chris McVeigh (aka powerpig) has created an ornament with which your lego obsession can command the tree galaxy. Unless of course, somewhere on your tree is an x-wing with Luke Skywalker in it. Watch out for that. You can follow all the steps as provided by powerpig through his own site, or check out the list of parts needed to make this battle station and try to figure it out yourself!
Those investigators over at Retrevo have done a lovely study on the holiday season in terms of people who own one of the following: iPhone, Android based phones, or BlackBerrys. Turns out they'd like accessories for their phones rather than for themselves. In their first study it was found that owners of iPhones and Android based phones both prefer gadget accessories over clothing, books, or perfume (I'm not sure why perfume was chosen instead of, say, movies, but it is what it is.) Only BlackBerry owners found it more enticing to receive a jacket for their back rather than a jacket for their device, and only by a few percentage points.
Oh hooray! Drinks and hearty appetizers will be served? I love it! But wait a second, does it say what I think it says? "You are invited to an evening of informal (and off the record) conviviality with our Communications staff and key Googlers." Could this mean they're giving out super secrets we're just supposed to keep to ourselves?! Or maybe it's just a fun night to hang out and get friendly. Either way, super exciting, and soon!

I can deal with most asshats without any issues or violence. If people I know get on my nerves too much I just don't have to see them again. When it comes to family, we don’t have that luxury. You can't just stop seeing family in most instances and no one can get on your nerves like family.
With Thanksgiving come and gone it's time to start dragging out all those Christmas lights and decorations at home and in the office. I bet at least a few of you guys are the sorts who decorate their home and their office cubicle or desk with all sorts of lights and other stuff to make things look festive.
