Whenever I think of scarys  movies and phones, Scream instantly comes to mind — especially the gory Drew Barrymore kitchen scene — yikes! Back in the eighties and nineties, most horror movies had serial killers cutting phone lines so when the victim (usually helpless young women) went to call the police, the phone would be dead. Nowadays, screenwriters can't write this classic scenario into scripts because a majority of people have

swapped their landlines for a cell phone. So what's a screenwriter to do? They are to play up the lack of cell phone service conundrum. Rich Four Four has put together this amazing compilation of 66 movies from 2000 that have done just that.

I was totally up on the steampunk craze , and although I would never be able to afford this $3,000 (yes, that's three zeros) 4 gb  Steampunk Flash Drive, I can appreciate its workmanship. Hand crafted with love , the drive is listed at such a high price because Will says that's what it would take to "pry the drive out of my hands and take it from my world into yours." I totally understand the sentiment, Will. That's one hot flash drive.

It's been awhile since I've been this overjoyed about a new video game, but it's not everyday you find out that one of your favorite childhood books is going to be turned into a video game! Growing up, my sisters and I had the entire Where's Waldo series of books as we'd flip each page trying to find Waldo — wearing his signature black-rimmed geeky glasses, red and white striped shirt, blue pants and matching hat — hiding within colorful illustrations that kept us just as amused as Waldo himself.

Not much info on this game release, but it is said to be like an animated version of the books and will be released on both the Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS (woot!).

Update: The game is now available! You can get from $28.

What do you think? Does anyone have one of these? I've purchased one over a year ago & have yet to hook it up. I was very excited when I purchased it. I'm thinking about hooking it up so that I can stream digital music in stereo wirelessly from my laptop. It has a 3 year warranty on the product and service. Did you find it easy to work with or have any difficulties? I realize this may be old school for some of you, so please lol ! I'm a little old fashioned but trying to stay up with things.
