Things That Are Awesome

There are things in life that suck. This list is not of things that suck, it’s of things that are awesome.

USB iGrill Still Causing Problems

Well, looks like one of ThinkGeek’s excellent 2003 April Fools — the George Foreman USB iGrill — is still wreaking havoc amongst the gadget blogging community.

I've Figured Out Coke Zero

Coke Zero is here, and those who know me know I love anything Coca-Cola related. So a few weeks ago, just after it launched here in the UK, I bought a 500ml bottle of Coke Zero to try, along with a bottle of regular Coke, and left them both overnight in the fridge to chill […]
