Apple tops the list of searched for stolen items

When my wife’s iPhone was stolen a few weeks back, I noticed something as I searched for others who shared my plight. That’s right, Apple has snagged 2 of the top 4 most Googled theft queries, outranking stolen identities, passports and social security cards. And yes, even the Zune.  Read More

Yes, I’m 13

Above: That’s right, 1 bar, baby! If there’s anything I should have learned from the Phantom Menace trailer, it’s that it’s extremely dangerous to get too excited for a movie, especially a sci-fi one based on your childhood memories. But I can’t help it, I have TRON fever. And really, how could it suck? It has light cycles, and one of the hottest latex clad chicks since The Matrix Aeon Flux. Above: Which is lamer? That I color-matched my icons,... Read More

Gamblers put even money on updated iPhone 4 tomorrow

According to the good folks over at, who specialize in providing off-beat gambling odds, there’s an even chance that we might see a retooled iPhone tomorrow, among other things. I’ll admit I am the worst gambler ever, having literally lost the shirt of my back at one point (a sweet Def Leppard Hysteria tour concert-only exclusive) but I would say the tweaked iPhone 4 is the LEAST likely to happen in my view, while a new iPod touch is all but certain.... Read More

What, no lobster mask?

Lady Gaga, or someone else with a horrible taste in fashion, stopped by Apple’s Cupertino headquarters today for a tour. I’m not sure whether or not it is a slight or a sign of respect that she didn’t show up in fishnets and a lobster mask, but I swear she walked out of there with 3 iPads hidden in her ‘fro. FYI, if anyone wants to know what I’ll be dressing as for Halloween, I suddenly had a great idea for a Blonde Elvira in a garbage bag. Not... Read More

Holy S#!@

Faithful Macenstein reader Brian writes: “Dunno if you’ve seen this or not, but thought you might like this….” MIGHT like it?!? Of COURSE I’d like it! In fact, it’s in my Netflix queue right now Brian, (and don’t any of YOU guys try to cut in front and steal it from me)! Actually, for the first 20 seconds or so I was positive it was a College Humor parody or something, and even towards the end once I realized the horrible truth –... Read More

OK, that’s just eerie…

I suppose with the amount of Words with Friends I’ve been playing odds are I would eventually find words spelled out for me in my tile rack, but as a Mac geek, I thought this was pretty bizarre. And yes, this was one of the few games I actually won.  Read More

Feed my Twitter Ego

I just logged in to Twitter and saw I am about 50 followers shy of 1000, and while I’m not usually one to get caught up in the numbers game, 951 is just a really stupid number. So if you aren’t already following me, please help me reach my meaningless goal which meant nothing to me 5 minutes ago and yet now is an all consuming obsession. Thanks. Who would want to miss out on gems like this?  Read More
