  • Star Wars scooter. It's designed like a STAP Droid hoverbike thingy. Made by the people who make "Zappy" scooters- it's electric. $900 isn't even that bad, I would just look like Supreme Commander of the Dork Army riding it :) [link>jmageau]

  • Oh great. Another version of Shockwave. "I'm sorry, you need to go download a new version of that old thing that you downloaded a few months ago. You don't need to know why your experience has been compromised by this interruption, just trust us that it's better for you and your family. This is a recording."

  • The impossible ass. Check out this banner ad. Some artist went through the trouble of trying to make it look like this woman's back is arched, possibly awaiting some doggy-style action (like gamers get any action at all), but really her spine would have to be... oh, I don't know... BROKEN.

  • I bought a 5-button mouse yesterday only to find the scroll wheel isn't supported yet under OS9. Well, their beta drivers work- sort of- they say you can expect the occasional crash. Grr. Works pretty good for Unreal Tournament, though.

  • Dragon's Lair for the Game Boy Colour. They actually converted full-motion video for this. This game has been re-done in so many ways since the arcade version- they really got their money's worth from the original animation, don't you think?
