RIP My Hard Drive, 2008-2012

This morning, I woke up to find my MacBook barely functioning, frozen, and plagued by a near-constant spinning rainbow of death. Long, painful story much shorter: my hard drive crashed and I can either have a new one installed, tomorrow at the earliest (I'm writing tonight from the completely empty office!), or I can… » 5/25/12 11:20pm 5/25/12 11:20pm

Worst iPhone Case Ever

If you're going to get a case for your iPhone, please don't get this case. It's pink, it's tacky, and worst of all it has a "Lady Mirror" when you flip it open. We're not women (obviously, but it would be awesome if we were), but we're even offended by the fact that the manufacturer thinks ladies need a mirror in… » 9/26/07 5:00pm 9/26/07 5:00pm

Worst. Laser. Etching. Ever.

More like laser retching (*rimshot*)! This laser etched Powerbook with a word cloud of Web 2.0 terms has got to be the worst thing we've ever seen. Worse than goatse and definitely worse than tubgirl. But it may be tied with that goatse/tubgirl mashup that made us vomit up two day's worth of beans. Oh god, here it… » 7/17/06 6:49pm 7/17/06 6:49pm
