Fabulous time wasters

Mike's Electric Stuff . This site is for very-hard-core geeks only. Think digital nixie tubes, photoelectric cells, and fun with plasma.

Mensa Test . Think you're quick mentally? Try this. It's a timed test and you have just 10 seconds to click on the answer. (Careful, there's sound.)

Magic Trick . A buddy of mine, George Siegel (he's now a member of the Hollywood Magic Castle and a magic aficionado) sent me this last week. It's a stunning variation on a very old technique. (For the magicians in the audience, think of the standard stage illusion that starts with the letter Z. Work through the magician's routine and it'll make sense.)

Christmas lights

Last year about this time I told you about an Astonishing Computerized Christmas Light Show. This year's entry is equally astonishing.

M&M's 50 Dark Movies

The site's spooky and the music's weird. The goal is to find the 50 movie titles hidden in visual riddles within the picture. [Thanks to Brent K. and his 68 buddies.]

Tom Pope

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

Tom Sellers


This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

Lolita Wang


It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Christopher Low

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
