Happy Birthday to us! Macenstein turns 8 and we’re giving YOU presents!

My goodness, where does the time go!? It seems like only yesterday we decided to stop wasting our time reading Mac sites and instead waste our time running one, and now here we are, celebrating our eight year anniversary. And like most 8-year olds we are not nearly as cute as we used to be – lots of missing teeth and adult teeth too big for our mouths mixed in with creepy small... Read More

I’m sure there are evil MIT graduates somewhere – ones with no sense of humor, plotting to use their giant brains to take over the planet and enslave us all, but I must say more often than not these MIT boys seem to like to blow off steam by making wacky-ass inventions. Like this one: MaKey MaKey. I’d explain what it does but this video does a better job than my dumb... Read More

Who says Final Cut X is broken?

Chaise Candie

Oh wait, I did. Well, I may be willing to change my tune after seeing this video for February 2013 Mac Chick of the Month Chaise Candie’s tune, L.I.F.E. Not only did Chaise sing and dance in the video, she edited it herself in Final Cut Pro X, and handled all the color grading as well. Surely this solidifies her place in the pantheon of Mac Chicks of the Month as being perhaps... Read More

To be honest, given how pioneering the adult industry is in adopting the latest technologies, I am surprised it took 6 years for someone to invent this. Behold Fundawear, the remotely controlled, vibrating underwear from the geniuses at Durex (the condom people). Unfortunately, if watching HBO’s horribly disappointing Real Sex series has taught me anything, it’s that... Read More

iPotty iPad toilet

OK, screw that, I must comment. First of all, I want the adult version of this. Secondly, as a parent, I truly think this would actually have made potty training our kids WAY easier. Of course, as a DAD, potty training was super easy, as my wife did it for us. But like many seemingly bizarre iPad/iPhone accessories on Amazon, whether or not they might legitimately work, the REAL... Read More
