Palm’s Ultra Tiny Phone Makes Me Happy

There’s just something about this phone. From the moment I laid my eyes on this thing, it just kind of made me happy. It’s small and adorable like a newborn puppy, and despite how petite it appears it photos, it looks and feels even smaller in person. And I’m not the only one that had this reaction. When I brought it into the office, people crowded around marvelled. One person cooed at it, another said, “it’s perfect,” while a third remarked that this is the exact sort of thing they’d wished someone would make for years. Read More >>

North Korea Brags About New ‘Ultramodern’ Weapons Test

North Korean state media announced recently that the country’s leader, Kim Jong Un, recently oversaw tests of a “newly developed ultramodern tactical weapon.” The new report is extremely light on details, but it’s a reminder that very little has actually changed in the US-North Korea relationship since President Donald Trump took power. Both countries have nuclear weapons and both are on a hair trigger as they develop new capabilities. Read More >>

Once Upon a Deadpool, the ‘PG-13’ Version of Deadpool 2, is Still a 15 in the UK

Back when the first Deadpool movie was released there was a big fuss over the fact it was aiming for a 'R' rating in the US, rather than the PG-13 rating the studio wanted to try and maximise commercial appeal. So it was big news when it was announced that a PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2 was announced, containing less blood, less swearing, and fewer conversations about the 'prison wallet'. Sadly Once Upon a Deadpool, as it's now known, will not be getting a lower rating here in the UK. Read More >>

New Massive Phallus Planned for London’s Skyline

The architect behind this latest massive tower for London – which is obviously Sir Norman Foster's lot – has already thought up a nickname for it. They would like it to be known as the Tulip, because tulips have long shafts and huge bulbous ends at the top. Perfect. Read More >>

A V10 Designed for Kids is the Only Affordable Way to Buy a Dyson

Dyson vacuum cleaners are, by all accounts, pretty great at what they do. They suck, but in the only good way we're allowed to talk. Assuming we want to avoid being on the receiving end of some stern words from someone in management. The problem is Dyson knows they're good, and charges a goddamn fortune as a result. Well lucky for you there is an affordable way to get one, but the downside is it's a toy vacuum made for children. Read More >>
