POP Phone Turns Your Cell Into an Old-Fashioned Handset

There was once a time when talking on the phone was a quiet affair, usually in the privacy of one's own home or an enclosed glass booth. Other people's phone calls have since become an annoyance, due to the ubiquity of the cells and the fact that Bluetooth headsets make it nearly impossible to tell who's crazy and who's talking to a client. A return to classical form might not be an altogether bad thing.

Created by French designer David Turpin for Native Union, the POP Phone is a bulky, vintage-inspired headset for your mobile device, laptop or computer (Lenny Kravitz is a fan). Available in six colors for the fairly reasonable price of $29.90, you can pick up your little piece of updated antiquity today. Check out a video review below:

Camaro Or Mustang?

That is the question of the ages.  I guess you can throw in the new Challenger as well for you Dodge fans but either way, I for one am glad the muscle car is back. 

If you look at the front bumper on the Camaro it kind of looks a little mad to even be close to the Mustang

Upgrade? Maybe You Should Wait

Stand Alone
GPS Navigators vs. GPS Smartphone Apps

Most modern smartphones have built-in maps and GPS units. But those built-in apps don't give turn-by-turn audio directions, like those you may be used to from a dedicated GPS. You can buy apps that give turn by turn directions, but they tend to be expensive, and require up-front costs or monthly subscription fees. (Mapquest is a notable exception; it's free for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android.)

Meet Naki’o, the First Dog With Four Prosthetic Paws [VIDEO]

Abandoned as a puppy when his owners fled their foreclosed-upon Nebraska home, Naki’o lost all four of his paws to severe frostbite after stepping into a freezing puddle in the home’s abandoned basement. He was rescued, but forced to crawl on his belly to get around. Happily, new owner and veterinary technician Christie Tomlinson successfully organized a fundraiser to have Naki’o’s two back legs fitted with OrthoPets prosthetics. When Naki’o enthusiastically took to his new hind-legs like they were the real deal, OrthoPets founder Martin Kaufmann decided to complete the set free of charge, making Naki’o is the first dog to ever be fitted with four prosthetic limbs.

Comparing 2011 Game Graphics With Atari

I'm amazed with how much game graphics have improved in the last 20-30 years.  First there was the Atari, then Nintendo, Sega, Playstation and Xbox.  This video is from a new game coming this fall called "Battlefield 3".  It's a mission where your in a tank and destroying any enemy in sight.  I personally can't wait for this to come out as it has quite a few people talking about it.

Now compare that video with other tank games from back in the day.  Compare it with "Tank" for the atari which made it's debut in 1974.  It's truly astonishing to see how far we have come in the gaming industry.  Even with the Sega and Nintendo.  When the Playstation and Xbox made their debut I was amazed with those graphics and now as I look back I wondered what games would look like in 2010.
