A mystery rock which seemed to appear out of nowhere on Mars last month stirred up much speculation among alien enthusiasts, but it appears the mystery is solved. The answer is more simple than sci-fi.
Dear Krispy, I'm breaking up with you. Thanks to the new Automatic Mini Donut Factory, there is no longer any reason to venture out into the world.
The $179.99 doughnut maker from Nostalgia Electrics sits on your kitchen counter and magically transforms raw doughnut batter into little halos of sin. All the flipping and frying is handled automatically, with your treats popping out at the far end of the machine.
Safety windows let you observe the action without accidentally frying your fingers. It even has a component called the "donut slide."… Read more
Doughnuts aren't typically the type of things one thinks too often about creating at home. Most every community has a doughnut shop nearby, and if it doesn't, then the next one over certainly will have one. Aside from the ubiquity of doughnut purveyors, the simple fact is one (or a dozen...) will usually suffice. But don't let all that stop you from whipping up a batch of five at home.
When I lived in Southern California, several of the Krispy Kremes in our area were kosher. This meant that my family was not denied the sticky sweet deliciousness that is the doughnut.
Here in Houston, we are not nearly so lucky.
Even if you have easy access to your local doughnut shop, doesn't that sometimes seem like an awful lot of effort to make to eat your favorite snack? Wouldn't it be better if you could just get the doughnuts to magically transport themselves to your kitchen?
Well, get yourself a Dough-Nu-Matic, and it's almost like magic. … Read more

The mouse seems to be undergoing something of a midlife crisis, no longer satisfied with its traditional role on the desktop. While struggling to find its way, it's been experimenting with everything from phones and numeric pads to massages.
But Deluo's "GPSMouse" has at least integrated its expanded function without completely losing its original identity. In addition to working as a standard optical travel mouse, according to Slippery Brick, it converts into a GPS receiver with a switch underneath, using the same USB line for its connection to the computer. It's not the first GPS … Read more
We almost couldn't bear to write this item because we're so sick of the image in the photo. We've spent more time staring down at the control panel of cardio machines like this than we can remember.
But Life Fitness, whose products we've become intimately familiar with, is taking a step that might lessen the agony at least slightly: It's adding touch screens that let you control your iPod without handling the device itself, according to I4U News. This may not sound like much but, if you're a regular at the gym, it could … Read more
