The Kids Won’t Be All Right: Here’s A Child’s Potty Affixed With An iPad

No wonder so many gross young people are grossly using social media on the toilet without realizing it is gross: we as a society are literally training them to do so. Yes, my flabbergasted friends, this is a child’s potty affixed with an iPad stand so toddlers can play Toca Kitchen Monsters while they’re doing their…

“The Little Mermaid” Is Returning To Theaters — In The Most Annoying Way Possible

When I heard “The Little Mermaid” was coming back to theaters, I immediately started sobbing with joy and planning the outfit I would wear to go see it (something subtle like a flared skirt with green sequins and a seashell bra). There was just no way I would ever miss the opportunity to see one…

If Jane Austen Had An iPad Cover…

If Jane Austen had an iPad today, she’d be tweeting about boys just like us. And she’d do it with this rad Pride And Prejudice iPad cover, which fits iPads versions 2, 3, and 4. The hardcover book board cover, layered with rubber inside, has been made by the oldest bookbindery in the United State…

Think Pink (For Keyboards, That Is)

I might be more than a little obsessed with C.Wonder’s WASP-y clothes, jewelry and accessories. But you shouldn’t concern yourself with that — no, you should be concerned with which of these three preppy colors you’ll choose for a Bluetooth-connected tablet keyboard. The small keyboard is lightweight, easy to carry, and makes it so much…

5 Reasons The New iPad Is A Waste of Money

The jig is up. We’ve been bamboozled. Had. Got the wool pulled over our eyes. There isn’t, in fact, an iPad3, or an iPad Mini, like some had been hoping. Instead, there’s the “New iPad.” Whatever that means.
Obviously, there are some cool things aboutApple’s latest gadget — and we told you about them yesterday, so I won’t…

Fleshlight Will Make Masturbating To Your iPad Even Easier/Messier

As mostly heterosexual ladies, we’ve had to fear/admire Fleshlight from afar. The silicone vagina slightly horrified us, especially the ones modeled after adult film actresses. Then again, if we’re here wishing upon a star that vibrators rain from the sky, why shouldn’t men enjoy sex toys, too? It’s only fair. Now the tech blogs Geekosystem…

Adorable Baby Thinks Magazine Is A Broken iPad

Babies these days. They’re so different from when I was one. Moons ago, when I was a drooling, waddling blob of cuteness, if you handed me a magazine, well, truth be told, I probably would have tried to eat it. Today’s babies? They don’t eat magazines. They just think of them as nothing more than broke…

Black And White And Read All Over

Stop the presses: this Kate Spade newspaper classified-printed iPad cover is a funky, literary take on the could-be-boring protective shield. Reading the fake classified ads like “Volunteers needed at the zoo” and “Found: spotted chihuahua” will keep you preoccupied when you’re out of a WiFi zone — not that you’d ever let that happen. While…

Angry Birds Continues Its Quest To Ruin My Life

So, what are your plans this weekend? I’m going to work on my book proposal, maybe do a little reading, see a movie, perhaps get brunch with friends — oh, wait, NO I’M NOT. Because, as of midnight tonight, Angry Birds — the iPhone and iPad app that has already stolen countless hours of…

High-Tech Etch-A-Sketch

Either the Etch-A-Sketch now has really amazing color graphics or crazy new high-tech capabilities … or some wise guy figured out the retro game would make for a great iPad case. [Geekologie]…

Apple Being Sued For iPads That Shut Down In The Sun

Pissed that their uber-expensive tech toys shut down in intense heat and sun, three iPad users are suing Apple for everything from false advertising to breaching consumer protection laws. The three plaintiffs — Jacob Balthazar, Claudia Keller and John Browning — have filed their complaint in Oakland, CA, and their lawyer hopes to turn it…

Sweet! Husband Gifts Wife A Chocolate-Covered iPad

Hubby Stefan Magdalinski knew that his wife, Kay, wanted an iPad for her birthday. But like a wily scamp, Stefan did not want to make it easy on her. Instead of using the obvious Apple box, he wrapped her iPad in plastic and had his friends who run a London chocolate shop dip it i…

Guy Rejects iPad In Favor Of Boredom

Meet Peter Bregman, a New York-based management consultant and my hero of the day. Like many other technophiles, Peter waited in line for hours to get his new iPad. He took it home, he emailed, browsed and Netflixed to his heart’s desire. It did pretty much everything he could ever hope for in a gadget.

Miss Your Moleskine? Check Out These Solutions

Most people who own Moleskine notebooks are converts for life. I’m one of those people. Only problem is, after becoming an iPhone user, I use my beloved notebook less frequently. For some reason, this still doesn’t stop me from carrying around a Moleskine in my purse at all times, although now come to think of…

A Diamond-Encrusted 22-Carat Gold iPad Case For The Nerd Who Has Everything

This is the $190,000 Platinum iPad Supreme Edition designed by a British jeweler. It’s both platinum and supreme, you guys.

This bling-ed out iPad case is made of solid 22 carat gold and encrusted with 85.5 carats of diamonds. And if you’re at this level of conspicuous consumption, you are probably an a**hole.

Pants For iPad Owners Begging To Be Robbed

Yesterday, we discovered the fairly cute iPad dress. Unfortunately, we’re now back onto the track of horrible iPad fashions. Or at least, that’s what the jokesters behind these fake iGotaBigAssPocket jeans mean to imply. Sadly, we wouldn’t be surprised if these jeans actually did exist somewhere out there. Functional, perhaps. But an incredibly flawed design—try…

The iPad Dress: Don’t Say You Didn’t See It Coming

Cool technology doesn’t always breed stylish fashions to go with it. Some prime examples would be the man’s cell phone holster as belt accessory, or the bedazzled Razr phone craze of 2005 (which, admittedly, we were kind of into for a hot second). So far, the fashion forecast has been none too favorable for the…
