What have you found on this vaguely amusing of holidays?

Let's go ahead and skip the WWE one, as it is covered elsewhere.

http://www.thinkgeek.com/ always has good product AF's including one that I always hope is real. I'm still waiting for someone to create the caffine inhaler from a couple years ago.

My favorite this year is the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/tauntaun.html

with Swedish Squeez Bacon http://www.thinkgeek.com/stuff/41/squeez-bacon.html a close second.

Holy Crap, check out the new NIN 'release', "Strobe Light". That's pretty sweet. 'Cause who wouldn't want to hear Justin Timberlake and Maynard James Keenan together at last?

Gmail has a nice one today for "Gmail Autopilot", which automatically reads and replies to emails for you. http://mail.google.com/mail/help/autopilot/index.html One of the examples shown has it sending all your info in response to a Nigerian scam.

LoL! That's a keeper. I'm looking forward to Jay-Z and Bono together. The album cover is pretty sweet.

Related to the Autopilot thing, Google claims they have created a new artificial intelligence, CADIE.

This is CADIE's blogspot page.

A couple webcomics I read have stuff going on.

Hijinks Ensue has created a parody of a well-known webcomic using HE's regular characters.

Left-Handed Toons (by right-handed people) had an interesting thing happen. It takes a few seconds, so don't just click on and then click away when you don't see something obvious.

That's... different. The CADIE thing was too much for me to deal with. Web pages should not make noise unless prompted. It takes me less time to find the close window button than the "TuRn this crap off" button. That said, I think it looks very much like a 17 year old girl made that page, painfully so.

True, yet there was an off button at the top via WMP. Well at least for me. I was jumbled in between all the ads.

Youtube had all their videos turned upside down, as in your monitor being rotated 180. It's since been reverted back to normal.

That's the concept. Cadie's a AI Bot who is a teen, so she has a myspace like page she has built.



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
