Remainders - Things We Didn't Post

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

• A site we've never heard of shows a rubber case for an iPod-touch-shaped device with a cutout where a camera could go, saying it could be for an "iPod touch 3." They go on to say that their source "has no creditibility," so we're inclined to dismiss it, along with that creative use of English. Speaking of which, the best part of the article was when they used the term "jack hole" to describe an actual jack hole, and not, like, some pasty-white guy with a beer in his hand and no shirt riding around on a lawnmower.

• MC Hammer took time out of his busy schedule to talk to Switched about iPhones, Twitter and—I shit you not—the election-related uprisings in Iran. Needless to say, he was pimping some kind of show that we aren't mentioning here. The only advice I want from MC (thanks for bringing the "MC" back) Hammer is how not to land in debtor's prison. Stop. Not "Hammer Time." Just stop. [Switched]

• Ryan Bavetta isn't the first guy to attach a fan to the back of a skateboard, and he sure as hell won't be the last. He is however, the one who resembles Napoleon Dynamite the most. To sum up what's brilliant and tragic about his creation, I'll use his own quote: "The only problem I see is that there are no brakes." [Make]


• A company called Zugara is promoting its Webcam Social Shopper, a virtual dressing room that checks you out and overlays clothes on you to "try on." Not only is this just a bad idea from the 1990s that keeps popping up, but we have yet to see the explanation for the 79% (or so) of Americans suffering from obesity. Either it doesn't work on them, cuz they're too fat, or it does work on them, and they get mad, because it basically says to them that they're too fat. Sounds like a lose-lose, at least in this plus-sized country. [TechCrunch]
