R/C Zombie


Life isn't fair. Some people are born with good looks, others are born with exceptional talents and skills, and still others are born with massive intelligence. You? Well, you were born with all of those qualities (we know . . . just like us). But what to do with the rest of the world - all those inferior to you? We recommend unleashing the undead. Not a horde or anything that could get out of control, but just a single Zombie to feast on the tiny brains who work around you.

You are in full control of this zombie, don't worry. Just use the Brain Remote Control and your undead minion will obey your command to shamble forward towards its intended meal. And just to show you how much it likes you, your R/C Zombie will groan as it shuffles, too (press button, he walks and groans; press it again, he stops). To help your zombie, you can also pose its articulated neck, shoulders, and hips. Just keep reminding your zombie that it shouldn't eat a big brain like yours; it should eat many little brains like those found in your coworkers' heads. Because studies have shown that many little meals during the day are much better for you than one big meal. Braaaaiiiiins.

R/C Zombie

* Features: Unbelievable walking and groaning r/c action; articulated neck, shoulders, and hips (for extra posability)
* Includes: R/C Zombie (7.75" tall) and Brain-shaped Remote Control (2.75" long)
* Batteries: 3 AAA (not included)

Canceling a Dell Order

Dell Support is no longer good(Fact). So you want to cancel your order that has not shipped?

You call the phone number on the Dell site and then get someone who states your order is in production and can't be canceled(false). They say this so you don't cancel your order. Many people me included have canceled order that is in production. It seems they have one guy on the phone who tries to claim that you can't cancel even when your item has not shipped.

Call this number 1-800-247-2076 and tell them you want to order a different model pc/laptop from Dell. They cancel it and you receive a confirmation email(sometimes) or check your order status online(It should say canceled). And you never buy a Dell computer again unless it's from the Dell Outlet(fact).

And this is the complete guide to canceling a Dell Order.

Super Soaker turns 20

It has been 20 years since Hasbro brought us the Super Soaker and now it's back for the next generation of kids. It's slightly modified as you can no longer remove the green bottle. Rather you unscrew a cap and fill in the water. Other than that it's pretty much the same water gun we know and love.

BudgetGadgets sell all kinds of Chinese gadgets. Prices are dirt cheap. And you can really finds some gems there if you look hard enough. I got to check two products from

First the USB Scroll Wheel Optical Mouse Mice for IBM Laptop/PC. This mouse has IBM imprint on it. And looks like a mouse that would come with a Thinkpad. The size is just right for a laptop. It has a rubberized coating so there is less chance of scratching. At only $4 this mouse is bargain.

Next I have a Special Design High Speed 4-Port USB 2.0 Hub. This is perfect for laptops that don't have a ton of USB slots. Just connect the USB Hub and turn your one USB 2.0 slot into 4. Perfect for Netbooks.

Vmedia for Netbooks looks oddly familiar

Vmedia is planning to release mini optical discs to the world of netbooks. But Vmedia discs looks very similar to Dataplay discs which didn't quite catch on. Neither did Sony's Minidiscs and UMDs. So I don't know how Vmedia plans to make a successful new disc format when others have tried and failed. It also can only hold 1GB currently with 2GB coming soon. Consider you can get SDHC in much larger sizes why would manufactures bother putting this in their netbooks when they can just add an SD Slot instead.
