NY Fed Prez Angers Hungry Mob With iPad 2 Gaffe

We know that the iPad is a popular device, and the iPad 2 will only make it more popular. It's an important piece of pop culture! We get it. But here's a piece of advice: When trying to explain to a crowd of angry people that inflation isn't really that bad and that the economy is doing well, you probably shouldn't turn to a luxury item like the iPad 2 as your example of economic stability....

Placekitten Pairs Web Design, Placeholder Pics and Pretty Kitties

For those who design for the Web, securing a placeholder image -- a temporary picture that'll save a spot while the website is under construction -- is often a headache. On top of needing to resize hundreds of images that'll just be tossed anyway, merely locating a group of suitable pictures is a tedious task to which no self-respecting Web guru looks forward. Enter Placekitten, a simple...

Are 'NCIS' Writers Part of a Conspiracy to Troll Gamers?

We're more than used to (and frequently annoyed by) the gross misrepresentations of technology and videos games on TV and in movies, but 'NCIS' has gone to new heights by failing to even approximate reality in this scene that's supposedly about MMORPGs. We just hope this Reddit commenter is right that it's all part of a massive conspiracy by TV writers to troll nerds....

This Mark Zuckerberg Action Figure Will Creep You Out

M.I.C., the same company that turned Apple CEO Steve Jobs into an action figure, has released yet another nerd-themed figurine -- this time, of Mark Zuckerberg. That's right, kids: You can now spend hours in your rooms, pretending that you're the founder of Facebook, and arguably the most awkward billionaire the world has ever seen. Granted, M.I.C. demonstrated a remarkable attention to detail in...

'Tinted Sheen' Lets You Surf The Web Without #Winning

Are you tired of going online for the latest LOLcat news, only to have your line of sight violated by Charlie Sheen? You're not alone. If you've OD'd on tiger blood, there is now a cure. Tinted Sheen is a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox that removes all instances of "Charlie Sheen" and "Sheen" (but not "Carlos Esteves") from websites, and even blocks images of his leathery mug. The...

Mark Zuckerberg's Adorable Puppy Gets a Facebook Page

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and world's youngest billionaire, just got a new puppy -- and OMG it's super-cute. It's even cute enough to have its own Facebook fan page, with almost 2,000 'Likes.' We bet your dog isn't that cute. To be fair, your dog is probably not a 2-month-old ball of fluff named Beast. Of course, Zuck wasted no time violating the poor puppy's privacy, posting photos...

'Goodnight Dune' Puts Super Geeky Kids to Bed

After spotting 'Goodnight Dune' in a list of parody sci-fi children's book titles, Julia Yu felt inspired and turned the joke into a reality. Margaret Wise Brown's classic 'Goodnight Moon' is reworked to include obscure 'Dune' references that only a true fan would get. Yu's illustrations are spot-on as well, blending the original style of 'Goodnight Moon' with homages to David Lynch's film...

Pixellated Stripper Encourages Stronger Passwords

The dweebs at Platform45 think a little pixelated peepshow will be enough to keep negligent surfers from using weak passwords. As your complexity increases, an 8-bit redhead loses her clothing, and eventually -- by combining upper and lower cases, letters and numbers -- ends up fully nude. 'Naked Password' is a bit of script intended for the backend of websites. (Try it out here.) Misogyny...

Game Literally Makes You Go, 'Pew Pew'

'PewPewPewPewPewPewPewPewPew' is a 2-D side-scrolling blaster game that should seem familiar to anyone who lived through the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. This soon-to-be Xbox Live title is a little different though; instead of using a controller, two players man microphones, one controlling thrust by blowing and the other firing lasers by -- you guessed it -- going "pew, pew, pew."...

Classic Literature Converted to QR Codes for No Good Reason

Books2Barcodes is the brainchild of the jokers over at Wonder Tonic. The idea is to take the world's greatest works of literature, such as 'Ulysses' and 'Moby Dick,' and convert them into thousands of QR codes, each of which houses an 800-character chunks of the tome. Point your smartphone with a QR reading app like 'Google Goggles' at the screen, and you've got a tiny fragment of a classic...

Hide Ya' Kids, Hide Ya' Eyes: 'The Chronicles Of Rick Roll' Is Real

You might have seen the teaser for 'The Chronicles of Rick Roll' already, and thought to yourself, "This is a really bad joke." But you'd be wrong! The creator of the clip, Andrew Fischer of Nurv.com, told Business Insider he is very serious about making a feature-length film. He assured the publication that "the movie is not a prank," and said he's hoping for a theatrical release. Even...

Louisiana Uses Wikipedia as Historical Record for Monument

Much of the world's history may have been written by the victors, but Louisiana's historical record apparently hinges on the whims of lonely computer nerds. Case in point: the State Capitol building in Baton Rouge, where a statue of the state's first governor is accompanied not by an official document or verified biography, but by a printout of the man's Wikipedia page. Yes, a printout -- from...

'Great Gatsby' Flick to Be Shot in 3-D

It sounds like a story line straight out of 'The Simpsons.' For the first time in years, a movie director will soon adapt 'The Great Gatsby' to the silver screen. Except this Gatsby will be in 3-D. And in Australia. Let's just hope that director Baz Lurhmann goes ahead, fully embraces absurdity, and writes in a few car chases....

Dorky Dad Bakes Son 'Angry Birds' Birthday Cake, Lazy Parents Roll Eyes

If your kids are currently in the room, it's probably in your best interest to refrain from watching this video. No, it's not because of bad language or nudity or violence. It's because, if they see this monstrosity of a birthday cake (and working model of 'Angry Birds'), they will not rest until you construct it. And that would take us months....

Fox's Fundamentals of Sexting: Learn Your MOOS from Your MOSS

Hey, old folks! Feel like getting into the exhilarating practice of sexting? Gizmodo breaks down some intrepid reporting typical of Fox News, so that the next time you get a text that reads 'GYPO IAYM,' you'll know it's not the Iowa Yearly Meeting of Friends deriding your Gypsy heritage. Fox reminds you: "Take it slowly. Sexting can quickly go from fun to creepy if you keep it up for too long or...
