The other day we reviewed the 808 SoundCap beanie with built-in speakers.

The cap is a great way to stay warm, is available in a variety of colors and… it delivers wireless sound on the go. From 1 Voice: The 1 Voice…

Show them you care with this amazing list from Drew Magary at Deadspin, who helpfully (and bravely) read the entire Scientology Christmas Catalog so the rest of us didn’t have to. Scientology is a scary concept, and not just for the $5,000 e-meters or L. Ron Hubbard’s singing. And after you read what Deadspin has covered, head to Amazon and buy or download a copy of “Going Clear“. It is the single most horrifying non-horror book I’ve ever read.

I have enjoyed survival simulation games from G5 such as The Island: Castaway in the past, which was pretty much what I assumed Survivors: The Quest would be like.
