Mac in the Box? (OS X Powered Scion xB!)

Yup, Besk one is a siiiiick puppy - he's not content with his new Scion xB just the way it is, so he's modding the hell out of it - and his current project is to install what ammounts to a PowerBook G4 500Mhz 512mb ram 80gb drive, Airport, Bluetooth and GPS connected to a 7" Touchscreen monitor in his dash.

Ya, i know what you're thinking... "Man this Besk one guy is out of his mind, there's just no reason for that". But there is my friends! the reason is I'm a siiiick bastard and having iTunes, Internet access, Bluetooth sync'ing with my phone, DVD's, DIVX, MPG's, AVI's and GPS Satalite Navigation is PIIIIIMPY!

Have a peep at the new Touchscreen hooked up to my G4 Tower for testing:

CapsGetPeeled.com will have a special area dedicated to the design and installation of Besk's new Mac in the Box as i get going with the project, check back for more details!

iPod Minis for Profit


Make money with the iPod Mini! The iPod Mini retails for $249, but the 4gb Microdrive inside it retails for $479. The Microdrve uses a standard CompactFlash connector so after reformatting the drive to FAT32 it can be used in cameras and other such items. With a couple compact flash cards you can even keep using the iPod Mini!

Palm Powered Tattoos


Meet Freddy. Freddy is a palm powered tattoo machine designed by Austrailian Niki Passath.
The 25 year old says:
"It was a hard job because the only person I could test it on was myself which was painful but a good incentive to get it right as soon as possible."

What happens when it crashes?

F/A-18A Hornet For Sale


For sale: One used US Navy F/A-18a Hornet Fighter Jet. This jet can fly 1,400 mph, can climb over 30,000ft, and turn any Afghani cave into a nice crater with ease. As part of the Blue Angels, it is also a collector's item. Originally this plane cost our government $28 million each, but thanks to the magic of ebay, it can be your for $2 million in parts or $9 million assembled. The seller recently got a visit from the FBI who apparently wanted a ride to the liquor store but forgot to bring jet fuel.

Real Nautilus Minisub


This guy built a 18ft, 1.25 ton working replica of the Nautilus submarine from the Disney movie 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

According to the website "The NAUTILUS MINISUB is presently in Hawaii receiving finishing touches to the exterior detailing, prior to continued open water operations in the Pacific Ocean." And if things dont pan out he could always become a super villian for a Bond movie!

Last.fm is a really cool personalized music streaming service that my explanations can't do justice so here is the blurb from their site:

"Last.fm creates a radio station unique to each listener. Stations are not limited by programming schedules or musical genres, but are compiled by a profiling and recommendation system which compares your musical taste with other listeners.

Last.fm Radio tries to do three things for you: Firstly the Last.fm system learns about your musical taste by remembering which songs you listen to and which you skip. Last.fm then uses this knowledge and tries to play you more songs you'll like, too. If you become a fairly regular Last.fm listener, the system should know you well enough to be able to predict new songs you like."

Sign up and start listening biatch.

Cheating the Pepsi Apple Promotion


MacMerc has discovered a way to cheat in the Pepsi/iTunes store promotion.
From their site:

"The secret is the angle. I've found it to be 25, but that's really no use when you're out in the field. Just tilt it until it seems about that, and look up towards it (hold it above your head). With luck, you should be able to see under the cap."

I cannot try this since I cannot find the promo bottles anywhere in Los Angeles, but if it works let us know!

Are you a dirty slob living in the LA area? Then why hire some ugly illegal alien to clean your home for pennies when you can hire hot chicks to clean for you? They will dress in costumes, bikini's, lingerie, topless or even fully nude as they perform a "light cleaning" of your cheetos covered rat shack.

Rates are:
Nude: $100
Topless: $75
Lingerie / Bikini / Costume: $50

How well do they clean? Who cares? You actually had a naked chick in your house without her filing charges! Be sure to leave a trail of clothes all over the floor for them to pickup.

The Grey Album

The Grey Album.jpg

The Grey Album is a remix of Jay-Z's Black Album with the Beatle's White Album by DJ Danger Mouse. EMI is pissed and sending out DMCA violation notices left and right. This site still has it up for download but you had better act quickly before the record industry does. iTunes 4 Cover Art is even embedded in the tracks =).

Windows Source Leaked??

Rumors are spreading around the net that the source code to Windows 2000 and Windows NT has been leaked on the net! So far there is no proof or confirmation from anyone and even the things mentioned in the articles sound pretty shady, but if it's true we can surely expect a deluge of viruses and trojans for the millions of windows users out there. Suckers!

Water in Zero Gravity


When they are not busy making broken mars rovers, NASA is spending millions of our tax dollars to pop water balloons in a zero gravity environment. The website has a few very cool videos and some sort of explanation that I didn't bother to read.

The End of the Simpsons??

E! Online is reporting that Fox is in the early stages of making a Simpsons movie.

"Fox's feature-film animation division is "in the very early stages of developing an idea for the movie," exec Chris Meledandri said in Wednesday's Daily Variety"

Could this be the end of the Simpsons 15 year run? The only movie based on a TV show that didn't completely suck ass was South Park Bigger, Longer and Uncut. The article mentions that the Simpson's staff feels the same way and some have even joked that the Simpsons movie is "gonna suck pretty hard.".
