To properly sum up my impressions and my experience (first time to Lolla btw) of Lollapalooza 2011 all I really need to write is a few (seemingly unrelated) words: Lobster Corn Dog That’s right ladies and gentleman what you see pictured above is the, thanks to Lollapalooza, infamous lobster corn dog from Grahamwich Not […]
Are you a gamer? Do you enjoy multiplayer gaming, but hate that it cuts your screen in half (not to mention that your friends are all screen-peeking cheaters)? Sony has announced a new monitor that allows two people to play simultaneously without giving up screen space. The new 24” LCD display from the electronics giant […]
