Warning on Melamine-Tainted Candy

October 29th, 2008 by Cobwebs

Just a public service announcement:

The U.S. FDA is warning consumers not to consume White Rabbit Creamy Candy or Koala’s March Crème Filled Cookies because they may contain melamine.

The Canadian government is warning the public not to consume Sherwood Brands Pirate’s Gold Milk Chocolate Coins (which may also have reached the U.S.), also due to melamine.

(Snopes reports this as genuine, incidentally; I always check.)

Avoid the brown stuff.

USB Flash Drive Skull

October 29th, 2008 by Cobwebs

USB SkullSolid Alliance, a Japanese gadget maker that has a reputation for producing, as Engadget puts it, “zany crap” (they followed up last year’s USB Ghost Detector with a more-featureful Ghost Radar), has recently produced some zany crap that’s pretty appealing.

Their USB flash drive is a custom-sized ring shaped like a big skull. The jaw pops off to reveal a USB plug. It’s got a 2GB capacity and comes in a variety of colors. Yours for $150 from Geek Stuff 4 U.

This is just such a Lucrezia-Borgia-meets-Cyberpunk sort of gadget. I love it.
