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.

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…

No Porn, Or Even Nipples, On The iPad

For an electronic device named after feminine hygiene products, the iPad isn’t loving the lady parts. Because of Steve Jobs’ desire for “moral responsibility,” pornographic content is blocked from the iPad. The device has a stringent anti-nipple policy and this extends to art photography. In order to publish on the iPad, magazines like Dazed &

The Future Of Fashion Is Already In Print

Futuristic style never turns out how we picture it to be. (Damn! We were really hoping for a Jetsons-style dress with built-in jet packs some day.) Part of the problem is that fashion advances with little innovations that tend to fit in seamlessly with the rest of what’s around it. Today, the New York Times

There Is Such A Thing As An Invisibility Cloak (And Carpet, Apparently)

Every day, I mourn the fact that there will never be another Harry Potter book. Yes, every day I cry over a butterbeer while feeling homesick for Hogwarts.

But who would have guessed that muggles could, in fact, bring back some magic from the wizarding world themselves. Apparently, scientists have already designed a type…

Have A Very Techy Breakfast

This laptop table tray by Zyane Tan combines two of our favorite activities: eating and computing. Now we might not feel like such slobs when we usually get crumbs all over the keyboard while browsing the morning news. Too bad we don’t have an extra $3,000 handy. [Unplggd]…

In case you haven’t heard, the recession is over and in celebration, everyone is throwing out their brand-new LCD plasma TVs to make room for the new $2,000 3-D sets! JK.

Some 2010 Tech Trends That We’re Wary Of

I would certainly describe myself as a bit of a technical prude. I mean, when I make dinner plans I don’t enter them into the complicated calendar on my BlackBerry—I pull out my day planner. I haven’t yet traded in my book collection for a Kindle, and instead of pricing out an iPod Touch thi…

Inventor Le Trung shared Christmas gifts, holiday foods, and festive decor with his girlfriend, Aiko, who is also a robot. Trung, who lives in Ontario, designed and built his fembot…

10 Items Of His We’d Like To Toss

Recently, the girlfriend of men’s nightmares took a golf club to her boyfriend’s Xbox 360, simply because he wasn’t showing her enough attention. A small (OK, a large) part of us gave a mental fist pump. After all, we know what it’s like to be overshadowed by our man’s favorite toys. The other part of… / December 5, 2009

Multitasking: A Phone And Bracelet In One

For me, finally getting my iPhone went way beyond the image of being a cool user of the Apple product. The second I purchased it, I became wrapped up in a world of new accessories, planning to pimp my cell out with a case and get a few pairs of fingerless gloves. In a way,…
