I am a big fan of ThinkGeek, except on April Fool's day. That day you have to be very careful as they whip out products that are within the realm of possibility and catch you off guard until you add them to your cart. Some of the products on the ThinkGeek site are clearly fake.
It's Summer vacation for plenty of kids out there, and so they're probably all sitting around, playing their video games, or whatever else their parents aren't all too fond of. So, what do you do when you need to give them something to entertain themselves for hours on end? You give them clothes that can do the job for you, of course! Introducing the Kids Electronic Guitar and Drum Kit Shirts, which are far more feature-packed than they probably need to be.
Happy Easter everyone, and welcome to this week's Week in Review. The big news this week was the pending launch of the iPad on Saturday. We learned on Monday that the device would land in Apple Stores on April 3 at 9am and would be in Best Buy stores then too. Of course, if you want all the details on the iPad, check out the full SlashGear review!
Grumpy old man that I am, ThinkGeek's iCade retro arcade cabinet for the iPad was the only April Fools joke that I found vaguely amusing. Promising, then, that the retailer describes it as "our most posted, tweeted and blogged about product this April Fools" and suggests that a real-world version is in fact "a possibility." Geekosystem pestered ThinkGeek about the chance of the iCade - which looks like a desktop arcade cabinet, into which an Apple iPad slots - crossing over from comedy mock-up to legitimate device, and while there are several hurdles (not least Apple themselves) it's definitely being considered.
