PikiPimp

PikiPimp is a quick easy way to pimp your photographs. Just do a quick upload and then drag and drop the various pimp accessories (for lack of a better term) on top of your photo and then watch as zany hijinx ensue. Once you’ve created your pimped out masterpiece, you can easily embed it into… Read more »

2006 Holiday Gift Guides

As I’ve done the past couple years (though a little late this year), I’ve compiled another list of Holiday Gift Guides for that hard-to-buy-for geek on your list this year. Photojojo Photo Gifts Roundup Uncle Mark Gift Guide and Almanac Engadget Holiday Gift Guide MAKE Open Source Gift Guide Street Tech Holiday Gift Guide Federated… Read more »

Elfster Secret Santa

Well, now that the holiday season is officially upon us (post-Thanksgiving makes it official), I found some helpful sites for all those secret Santa gift exchanges out there. Elfster.com and SecretSanta.com both take the pain out of organizing a Secret Santa gift exchange. You set up an exchange, and then list all the participants. It… Read more »

Turkey Day Gadget

I wanted to find some special Thanksgiving gadgets for today, but couldn’t come up with much in the quick Google search that I tried. I did find something pretty interesting, though I don’t know if it would be categorized as a gadget. It’s called Season Shot, and it’s basically shotgun shot made out of spices,… Read more »

Bud Smack

I ran across a cool site the other day called Bud Smack (it’s sponsored by Budwiser). Anyway, the site lets you upload a photo and make it say whatever you want (in a robotic computerized voice). Then you can send it off via email. It’s kind of like a digital marionette.

The Stunt Man

Need to relieve some stress? Maybe throwing a stunt man around an abandoned alley would help. I don’t really know what this site it for (other than a few minutes of fun). When you run out of time, it links you to a site that has an ActionCity billboard on it… and really not that… Read more »

Guess The Logo

I like to keep my eyes open for different logos, whether that be on the web or driving around in the real world. This fun little game test how well you remember common logos from several prominent web companies. I got a 68.92%. See how well you fare a logo identification. (hint: Amazon is smiling… Read more »

Congress In 30 Seconds

Who’s tired of the political ads on TV? I know I sure am! Who would have thought I’d ever want the good ole ads for toothpaste and beer back… ads that are actually selling something rather than badmouthing a political opponent. With less than a week to go before the midterm election there has been… Read more »

MOO Flickr MiniCards

Moo! isn’t just what a cow says, it’s a nice little printing solution hooked into Flickr. For a limited time, they had an offer for Flickr pro members to receive 10 free MiniCards, which I quickly jumped on. Well, my MiniCards showed up yesterday and they’re kinda neat. They’re about the size of a stick… Read more »

Google Maps for Palm

Google has had a mobile version of its Google Maps out for a good while now. But for some reason, it wouldn’t work on a Palm device, or more specifically, the Treo 650, which is what I own. Well, today they released a Treo version of their mobile Google Maps, and it works great! I’m… Read more »

Weird Al Videos

Check out this list of the top 10 Weird Al Yankovic videos of all time. I especially like his latest (#2 on the list) White and Nerdy… not that I can relate or anything. I’m a geek, not a nerd!

Leave Amazon Unbox in the Box

To get the jump on Apple, Amazon released their movie download offereing (called Unbox) just days before Apple’s announcement last week. To kick off their launch they’re offering a free download ($1.99 instant rebate) for a TV show. I decided to give the new service a try (since the first one is free). I downloaded… Read more »

Flickr Geotagging in Google Earth

At long last, a Google Earth plug-in has been created to allow viewing of Geotagged Flickr photos in Google Earth again. A group called Metatoad Media has brought back the same functionality that used to be available when geobloggers.com was the only way to do this.

Viral Video Chart

Ever wondered what videos out on the Internets were the most viral? Well, wonder no more, just check out the Viral Video Chart based on the most talked about videos of YouTube, MySpace, and Google Video. How else would I have found out there is a NEW Numa Numa song?!?

Google Image Labeler

OK, pretend you’re Google now. How do you go about getting unsuspecting users to do your bidding and label images for the Google Image Search? Make an addictive game out of it. This game sucked me in for longer than it should have. The basic idea is you’re paired up with some other unsuspecting Google… Read more »
