I DON’T think the screen is supposed to look like that. It certainly didn’t look so pixellated last weekend, but then again last weekend it hadn’t been dropped in a sink full of plates and dirty, soapy water and then spent a week in a bag of oatmeal. In case you need instructions on how to drop your iPod Touch in a full sink, here’s what I found to be the best way:
1. Make sure volume is right up, you’re wearing over-the-ear headphones and a song you really, really like is playing.
2. Go into the kitchen to get a coffee.
3. Put […]
FAREWELL to the old canvas satchel that’s served me so well for the past eight years and hello to the new bag in my life - an Aperture Science messenger bag in glorious orange. It’s based on my favourite videogame, Portal, and looks great. I wanted to get it a few months back but the price put me off, then Ev got it for me as a birthday pressie. Lovely.
It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be but all that means is that there’s loads of space inside. The front holds pens, an iPod or phone and my notebook […]
REMEMBER these? Fezzy did. Thanks to him I’ve had to buy a new pair of headphones as he bit through the wires on my Rebel Alliance set. In fact, in order to do that he had to stick his head inside my satchel to get at them, a feat of feline intelligence that furthers my belief that he’ll be running the universe by the time he’s three. I didn’t talk to him for two days. So after owning these for three weeks, using them twice and chucking them in the bin once, I was forced to switch to the dark side […]
I’M SAD, I know it. But when on the lookout for a new set of headphones to replace the ones Fezzy chewed up last month I found these on Amazon and bought them. They were about $21 with postage and look, they’re bloody Rebel Alliance headphones so what else was I going to buy?
Here they are balanced against a lens that cost about 12 times as much as the headphones. I wish I knew where the backcap is. Oh well. They’re the fold-up kind for easy storage and are a fetching shade of bright orange, much brighter than in the pic. […]
YEAH, it had to be done. I’ve wanted a Mini Cooper USB drive for ages after seeing these but $35 for a 2Gb drive is bloody ridiculous. Then I thought about making one of my own but was put off by the simple fact that I’m shit at DIY. So when I spotted this 8Gb drive in Staples for $15 it was a case of “where do I pay?”
The drive is built into the Mini’s body and slides out the back…
…giving it the “I bought a bookcase at Ikea and forgot I had the Mini” look.
It’s too wide to plug into the […]
