Huffing air just got a lot more difficult

Boy, nothing really gets me going in the morning like huffing compressed air out of a can. Ok, I’ve never actually huffed compressed air, but plenty of people out there have, and Memorex is stepping up to the plate to try and deter those that would do so.

According to the Alliance for Consumer Education, more than 2.1 million teens ages 12-17 have used some form of inhalant, such as compressed air. However, Memorex has decided to include an additive known as bitterant to their line of Air Duster to discourage people from inhaling.


Lego Mos Eisley – Someone has too much time

I’ve loved LEGOs ever since I was a child. I still have my collection of spaceships, including my own Star Wars creations that I made before ever getting the official sets. But whoever built this set is my hero.

The Ghost Clock: Not for the clumsy

The Ghost Clock is probably within the top ten signs you don’t have children. I’m terrified to have a clock like this and I don’t even have any.

This is one of those things that you avoid looking at for fear that if you look at it wrong it will break. Although you can’t help but appreciate all the cool details within the clock. It also comes in bronze, green and blue. I like the colored ones slightly better, since they somehow look less fragile.

Like any highly breakable clock it is pretty expensive. It is priced at right around $140.

Personally I find it difficult to believe that the Zune was only released last November, but I guess that’s the side-effect of big rumour run-up periods.  Anyway, Microsoft set themselves the goal of selling one million of the little buggers in six months, and according to Entertainment and Devices Decision President Robbie Back they’ve actually done it already.
