Outlaw Toymakers Lampoon Zuckerberg

Those jokers over at M.I.C. Gadget have done it again. You might remember them releasing an action figure of Apple's CEO last year. This time they've chosen to release a figure for FaceBook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg. "It is heavier than an iPhone, lighter than an iPad. And it stands 7 inches tall." He comes accessorized with a Like It button, Adidas sandals, and smarmy grin.

The Today Show Talks About New Fangled Contraption Called The “Internet” in 1994

“That little mark with the “a” and the ring around it.” Those were Bryan Gumbel’s words as he tried to figure out the “@” symbol in e-mail addresses in 1994. His co-anchor Katie Couric, sporting an awesome 90’s hair style, thought it meant “around or about”.

Washing machine dies miserably washing a brick

Washing machine dies miserably washing a brick

On more than one occasion, I have pulled something out of the washing machine and found that it was stretched out after getting caught as the spin cycle starts. Every now and again, we have to set an example to show that behavior like that is unacceptable from our appliances.

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag might become real

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag might become real

There were plenty of good April Fool's gags this year, including CADIE and GMail Autopilot from Google, but my personal favorite was a joke product ThinkGeek was offering. The Tauntaun Sleeping Bag was merely a joke--a gag to trick customers--but after an influx of emails, the store might actually offer it.

Apparently, so many customers emailed ThinkGeek that they're seriously considering making this sleeping bag. How cool would that be? The only stipulation is that they have no idea if they'll be able to get a license from Lucasfilm. But still, it's awesome that they're going to try.

I hope if the real thing is made, it looks exactly like the mocked up photo: furry Tauntaun body outside, Tauntaun guts inside and light saber zipper. Now you can recreate the famous scene from The Empire Strikes Back without the Tauntaun carcass smell.

Real Apple fans have iPhone wedding cakes

Real Apple fans have iPhone wedding cakes

If I told you that we found this picture courtesy of Gizmodo, you'd probably look at it and call me a liar right to my face.  I'm okay with that.  What I'm not okay with, however, is this beautiful iPhone cake and its wasted potential.  Look at those apps - the thing isn't even jailbroken!  I suppose it's fitting though; a locked down phone for a newly-locked-down man.

The cake took 18 hours to make and was a gift to Bobby Casey from his new bride.  Sure, it says Cingular on it, but that doesn't take away from its awesomeness one bit.  It's almost too beautiful to eat, but unfortunately, the cake was eaten.  At least they took pictures.

Bottom line: whoever made this thing has serious talent.  In fact, I wonder if she'd make us a Palm Pre cake for launch...  If you're out there, get in touch!
