Remainders - Things We Didn't Post

Here's the stuff that we didn't post today. (Until now, obviously.)

• Some Sprint store got overzealous, started selling Pre accessories early. One lucky shopper picked up the Touchstone inductive charger and charger backplate. Should you care? No, because you don't have a Pre yet, and it's unlikely they'll run out of Touchstones before they run out of Pres. [EverythingPre]

• Walking gelatin means future electronics-free robotics. Too bad it's so far in the future that you'll probably be dead. [New Scientist]

• Intel's releasing Pentiums again. Unfortunately, they're slightly gimpy processors, jammed in somewhere above Atoms and below standard Intel fare. It's like digging up a corpse just to stab it again. [Inquirer]


• Dude—presumably with beer in one hand—takes off old winter tires, puts on new non-studly tires. Somehow grabs the wrong lug nuts to fasten the wheels. What happens? Yep, all four wheels pop off simultaneously, and get this, while the dude was driving down the highway. The report says he came to an immediate stop. Thankfully no one was hurt, so we can laugh our asses off. Funny, but not quite Gizmodo material. [Reuters]

• The fastest 1U server on the planet gets unveiled. Great, except almost none of us use 1U servers in our home, so we'll let the IT guys fight over whether or not this really is the fastest 1U server ever. [Echannelline]


• The LG Tritan's heading to U.S. Cellular. Good news, U.S. Cellular customer! [Boy Genius Report]

• HTC's announcing something on the 24th. What it is, we don't know, which is why we're passing on this until we hear something more concrete.
