This was a week owned by Charlie Sheen. Not even a surprise appearance by famed Apple dude, Steve Jobs could divert scant rays of limelight in the direction of actual relevance. In this world, there is no greater entertainment than the utter derailment of over-inflated celebrity — especially when they involve “refreshingly honest” monologues about hookers and blow.

ONES

  • Drinking, smoking, and using your cellphone have long been determined to be spectacularly hazardous to everyone’s safety while driving, worries though clearly left for neo-luddites. The thought of compromising such pivotal life functions has clearly spurred on the technologists who now look to address the real problem: driving. With thoughts or completely thought-less.

  • Young gamers these days have it easy these days. Untangling mountainous piles of cords and vigorously blowing into dusty cartridges were part and parcel of the gaming experience, our equivalent of the 10 mile walk to school uphill both ways. This 8-bit breathalyzer game is an ode to the good ol’ times and perfect for getting your geek-fix.

ZEROS

  • It’s time everyone learned about zombie ants. You’ve been warned.

  • Brooklyn hipsters have taken the “eat local” movement too far with this new emerging trend: human cheese.
