DJ HERO

A Revolution in Party Playlists

Ah, the party mix—execute it well, and you're a hero. Execute it poorly, and your friends will never let you near a stereo again. A solution: this site, which lets you and your friends create a collaborative playlist, even as the party is in motion. Not that anyone should thwart your wall-to-wall Bee Gees rock block.

Icelandic Volcano Ash for Sale
NICE ASH

Icelandic Volcano Ash for Sale

A Dating Site for Apple Fans
PLAYING CUPID

A Dating Site for Apple Fans

The Glass-Sided Toaster
HOT HOT HEAT

The Glass-Sided Toaster

Introducing the RoboCup
DO THE ROBOT

Introducing the RoboCup

There's no better way to celebrate Mother's Day than... heading out to the golf course to play a few rounds. (Well, depending on the mom.) This can get you prepped for the season—it's basically a putting green cup that can launch your ball back at you from about 14 feet away. Corporate-sponsored polo shirt not included.
