The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

iPhones and Easy Chairs Hacked

Posted on Thursday, July 12 @ 03:54:15 Eastern by joeblow
Well with most of the gang down south at E3 I'm stuck picking up what coverage I can on TV. As a result of being left to my own devices for a little too long I ran across and odd combination of creative hacks today I just had to share. 
 
The first one is an iPhone playing World of WarCraft and while it really isn't a "hack" and probably isn't very practical it is impressive. Seems this guy is using a program called Telekinesis which allows you to stream music and videos from your Mac to remote devices. The app sounds similar to a program I use to stream media from my PC to my phone and Wii called Orb. I can't control a game from my phone though...or can I?
 
It doesn't look like he'd do too well in a PvP match against some of our guys with the iPhone setup. I think what's really impressive is that people actually play WoW on Macs.
 
I'm kidding, no hate mail please. Seriously though, if you're interested in some more useful iPhone hacks like running Trillian, IRC, or VOIP check out the unusually named iphonehacks.com. I even found out about an eBay auction selling a smoothie made from an iPhone put in a blender there. As of this writing the current bid is $570 so fire up those sniping tools.
 
Enough with the phone and onward to the Easy Chairs. A hugely creative company called Armchair Cruisers has created a line of high performance armchairs and couches that come in both electric and gas powered versions. Sounds like just the thing we need here at GR to get from one end of the compound to the other.
 
Check out some of the options on the gas powered models:
 
Rear differential for tight turning

Belt drive Torque convertors

Multiple power plants

Disk brakes

Nitrous kits

electric start

coolers

Wheelie bars

"Bling Packages"

Hymn joint controls

Chrome foot pegs

Wood trim

Replaceable Drop skirt

Liquid cooled twin engines

Copper dual exhaust
