The new WeatherSpark application takes weather forecasting and display to a whole new geek level. Forget cute fluffy cloud icons and stodgy 4 day forecasts, this puppy comes with dynamic drag and drop mega charting with cloud cover and rain, comparisons across different decades (brilliant to see what the weather should be for this time of year) and a Google Map mashup which is designed to make it trivially easy to find out the weather in your area.

Shaped like a happy bear remote, this Baby Bidou MP3 Player has some kid friendly buttons that will make it easy for your little one to understand.

Google now allows everyone to block sites from appearing in search results

Not long ago we told you about a very handy Chrome extension that allowed you to block certain sites from appearing in your Google search results. That’s great if you use Chrome, but if you’re say, a Firefox user, it might not help so much. Well fear not, as that capability is coming to your favorite search engine, regardless of what your browser of choice is. Google has announced that they are adding the ability to block any site from…

Sudoku Rubik’s Cube is two puzzles in one

I’ve never been able to solve a Rubik’s Cube. Granted, it’s been a good number of years since I actually attempted. Even still, that puzzle seems like such a daunting challenge. So sometimes it blows my mind when I see that people have found ways to actually make the Rubik’s Cube even harder. If you really love a challenge, you can go for the Sudoku Cube, which combines the challenges of both the Rubik’s Cube and Sudoku. It only costs…

Airspresso

In the town I currently reside, there are two favorites among the locals; bicycles and coffee. This may be an odd pairing to some of you, but this is a pretty standard occurrence after you start paying attention to it in different towns. The love of coffee and man-powered transportation is common enough that very specific products have been made for it. The Airspresso bike pump espresso machine is one of these things. Can you imagine ending a long and…

Apple now requires a password for all in-app purchases

Remember  back in December when we warned you of the possible danger of letting your kids play certain apps on your iPhone? The danger was that if you’d entered your iTunes password within the last 15 minutes, your child could make in-app purchases on your dime. The Smurf’s Village app was notorious for being used by children to make such purchases. Well now with the latest version of iOS (which came out yesterday), you don’t have to worry about that…

Yamaha Noise Generator keeps your conversations private

There is a time and a place for everything; except eavesdropping. We’ve all done it once or twice, and most of the time just by mistake, as we’re not listening to music or busy at the time. In some professions, the possibility of being overheard needs to be eliminated, as you could lose your job over it. Places such as pharmacies and hospitals have to adhere to the principle of patient confidentiality, but can’t always promise the confidential part if…

Google Smart Labels help sort your inbox

None of us like being stereotyped into a specific category. Though I doubt we’d mind if our email is stereotyped and categorized; provided Google sorts it for us. Google has announced a new feature for Gmail users called Smart Labels that will organize your email so you don’t have to. I don’t know about everyone else, but my email inbox Is a mess of notifications, forum chatter, newsletters, etc. The occasional “real mail” will pop up here and there, but…

EX Vehicle is powered by two screwdrivers

When we think of bicycles and screwdrivers, we don’t naturally think of putting the two together. Let alone having the screwdrivers be the source of power. Thankfully there are some extremely creative people out there with dreams to build little cars out of bicycles and tools, and the time to put into making it a reality. Designed by Nick Ferbis, this “EX Vehicle” is a three-wheeled machine that can travel at speeds of up to 18 mph. Though it may…

Asus motherboards to ship in boxes that can double as a PC case

If you’ve ever built your own PC, you know that there are a lot of things to consider when making a purchase. There are a good number of parts, each demanding a pretty penny. If you’re on a tight budget, you need to cut corners where you can, without sacrificing too much power. One of the first things to get bumped down on the list is the case. You can spend hundreds of dollars on a fancy one, or you…

Solar Pool Skimmer cuts down on your pool maintenance

Seeing that it’s still really cold outside, my mind is on the summer months. Of course, the warmer months aren’t all fun and games. Instead of bundling up, you’re trying to stay cool. One great way to do so is by taking a dip in the pool, should you have one at your disposal. The downside of having a pool in your yard is all of the upkeep. Every day you have to skim it, then vacuum it rather often…
