Apple iPhone 4S – Made for the Socially Awkward Agoraphobes among us.

I don’t know if I’m the only one here who hates phone calls and much prefers to message, but iPhone 4S’s new Siri function has me backpedalling on all the slandering I gave the recent upgrade.

iOS 5 impresses me and I’m really looking forward to its release next week, but voice activated everything? Honestly you have no idea how many times I have brainlessly almost spoken a message at my iPhone 4 out of a lack of hand mobility or just plain laziness.

Driving? Use Siri.

Baking a cake? Use Siri.

Showering? Use Siri.

I hate everyone on 3G/3GS plans that run out soon. I still have a year to go.

Oh There you Are, Portal 2

Portal 2 TV Spot

Portal 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2007 game by Valve, is scheduled for release on April 19th and is currently available for pre-order. Here’s the new TV spot that’s been making the rounds.

Using a highly experimental portal device, you’ll once again face off against a lethally inventive, power-mad A.I. named GLaDOS. And this time you won’t be alone. Meet an expanded cast of characters as you think your way through dangerous, never-before-seen areas of Aperture Laboratories.

Break the laws of spatial physics in ways you never thought possible, with a wider variety of portal puzzles and an expansive story that spans a single player and co-operative game mode.

Chuck Norris roundhouses Adium?

Ok we all know that Adium extensions are awesome,

this has to be the most awesome I have found yet.


It is a simple AppleScript that pulls down a feed of sudo-random Chuck Norris facts from After installing, simply type /chuck in Adium chat and see what happens. The results are crude, unexpected and … awesome.

One of my favorite best shirts in the history of shirts

C-MEN tee

This Big Bang Theory shirt is based on the conversation between Penny and Sheldon…

Penny: So what do you say Sheldon, are we your X-men?

Sheldon: No, the X-men were named for the X in Charles Xavier. Since I am Sheldon Cooper, you will be my C-men.
