These mini speakers pack an itty-bitty boom for the portable partier. These tiny tweeters have a built in amplifier and charge up via USB, giving you four to five hours of minuscule musical melodies. The cubes measure about an inch square, and will only be sold in Japan for the time being.

One Chinese man has an obsession with robots. Okay, maybe there’s more than one of them, but this particular one has built 26 of them, his favorite having the ability to haul his lazy but around town in a rickshaw. In communist china, rickshaw drives you! The rickshaw robot can go for six hours on a charge!
I wonder if you can get a DUI while driving this thing?

Here in the land of Whoppertunity, we take our shopping very seriously. When I find a wicked deal in a store, I yell out “I just pwned you, noob” right in the cashiers face. Then I teabag them. Looks like I’m not the only one who thinks that shopping is a contact sport. Here’s some of the mayhem that went down over the weekend:
A worker at a Walmart in Long Island, NY was trampled to death after hundreds of people smashed through the entrance. A woman also miscarried after getting caught up in the ensuing rage.
“He was bum-rushed by 200 people,” said Jimmy Overby, 43, a co-worker. “They took the doors off the hinges. He was trampled and killed in front of me. They took me down too…I literally had to fight people off my back.”
From what I gather here, people are taking the phrase “doorbuster” quite literally. And the woman had an effing miscarriage? Now that is some hardcore shopping.
