Gadgettes 123: The nerd alert episode

We fully admit that we are all, at heart, nerds. But this episode is dedicated to that special kind of nerd. The kind that you find yourself turning to your friend to whisper into their ear "OMG nerd alert!"

Dear Gadgettes Wonder Team,

I saw this on Boing Boing, which means you’ve probably seen it too. As both a tea-enthusiast and fan of the film Jaws, it appeals to me on a delicious, visceral level:

Keep up the great work!

Duncan:

Hi guys,

Duncan in New Zealand (Dunk0rz in the chatroom) here. While listening to yesterday’s episode and the story about aluminium iron-oxide paint to block Wi-Fi, I suddenly realized that aluminium iron-oxide also happen to be the most common ingredients in THERMITE, a highly explosive powder substance. Don’t believe me? Check out the Wiki!

Is anyone so paranoid about Wi-Fi mooching that they are willing to let there house burn at 4500 F, turning it into a blob of molten metal and ash…

Anyway,

Keep up the good work.


Hey Gadgettes,

I know that knitting isn’t exactly tech but its Wii related. Anyway, may I present, Mii baby gloves. Possibly the cutest thing you will ever see ever.

How frigg’n cute!!!!
