Get a real gaming platform

And if you can believe this, I'm not even talking about Macs! OK, so follow closely because this is a little circuitous. I was perusing Slashdot when I found a post about a site that had a picture of the new Sony VAIO.

The VAIO pics were there (and CmdrTaco is right; it looks like complete crap) but they also had a link to what could be the stupidest electronics accessory I've ever seen. That's right, it's a joystick for Nokia phones. It's called the SnakeBite, presumably because the only reason for its existence is to improve your abilities at the Nokia phone game Snake. For those of you wanting to cash in on this brilliant idea, sorry; according to the site they have a patent pending on the thing. Somebody shoot me.

Like what we're doing? Pay what you want to support TR and get nifty extra features.
