The UK’s Sun and Daily Mail fooled by iPhone Ghost app

We’re not exactly ones to check our sources, but then again, we’re a web page, and if it turns out we write something stupid, we can always hit “delete” and hope everyone forgets about it. (Yes, I know, Google never forgets). But unfortunately for UK papers the Sun and Daily Mail, their idiocy will live on in print for years. Case in point: Check out the... Read More

Some things are just so stupid that they’re awesome…

… and some things are just stupid. I am somewhat on the fence here about the Retro TV Dinner Turkey Corn and Mash Potatoes Gadget Case for the iPhone/iTouch. Sure, it seems like a good idea for a joke gift, but at $20 it rivals the cost of many “real” iPhone cases that a person might actually use. Now, if it looked like bacon, that would be different. But as... Read More

Reasonable-looking Apple tablet pics surface

As usual, pics of Apple’s top secret device have surfaced exactly 4 hours before the official unveiling. An Engadget tipster has sent out what appear to be pretty convincing shots of an Apple Tablet-like device, bolted to a table (presumably to prevent this sneaky shutterbug from stealing it outright). Note the front-facing camera, and “no carrier” label at... Read More

The world’s most advanced Vodka

Faithful Macenstein reader Chris came across an interesting beverage while in Poland recently: I suppose we’d have to check with the Polish highway safety department to be sure, but I would wager there are far fewer drunk driving “crashes” caused by Snow Leopard Vodka than Windows 7 Vodka.  Read More

I’d like to give a big thank you to all of you who took the time to enter our “Where in the World is Steve Jobs?” contest!

So without further ado, here are the winners, and a bunch... Read More

Israel hates Jennifer Garner

How else can you explain Israeli airport security firing three shots into the MacBook of Lily Sussman, which just happened to be sporting an Elektra Stamp? (2005’s Elektra of course being the 3rd worst Marvel comic movie of all time, and starring Jennifer Garner in the title role). Above: Elektra proved as hard to kill as the Elektra movie was to watch. In the airport... Read More

The Time Capsule Jewelry Box: Hide your valuable jewelry inside your valuable electronics

Aside from the whole “engagement/wedding ring” thing, I think I have not bought the Bride of Macenstein any jewelry in the 70 or so years we’ve been married. Yes, she’s a lucky woman. But despite her lack of baubles, I’m sure if she DID have any nice jewelry (or valuables of any kind), she would appreciate this velvet-lined Time Capsule jewelry... Read More
