Video Games Launched March 2007

Since people are outside, and not inside playing video games, sales in the video ndustry dip during these months. As a result, many game companies hold their games from being released during this time of the year. Each year, however, a handful of game companies take a chance by releasing a game during the spring, and these are the big titles that came out this month read more »

Water-Safe Baby Carrier


With summer fast-approaching, visions of the dreaded heat and humidity press tightly on my mind, like a hot, wet cloth. Oppressive and uncomfortable, the Midwest summers can nearly kill you or at least obliterate any fun outdoors - especially for my family. We all dislike the heat. Staying at home with the kids, cooped up in the deliciousness of air-conditioning can only last too long. Boredom sets in. Quick as a wink, I'm out the door, having packed everyone up for an afternoon at the pool. I love the water; its blue wetness dazzling in the glaring sun. Watching the children swimming their hearts and summer away is amazing. I love to hear their ecstatic squeals of laughter echoing off the water.

10 Weird Handbags for the Manly Man


I don't know about you, but I am involved with a woman. That, by definition means that whenever she and I go out together, I somehow end up holding her purse. I don't know what it is with women and their purses. My lady can't go anywhere without it, but then tries to dump it on me every chance she gets.

Waiting around the mall this weekend bored out of my mind, I realised that I really I should be able to do something to make it more fun for a man to hold a woman's purse. I mean, if we men are going to end up holding the darn thing, shouldn't it be something we can have more fun with or at least not be mortified to be seen with?

So here are my picks for the 10 HandBags A Real Man Can Carry: read more »

Brilliant's Invention Idea of the Week - Gas-o-Haul


Gas-o-HaulI think it's important for a car to have a container handy to hold extra gasoline or water in case of emergencies. But, the storage containers traditionally available to hold gasoline are usually huge and bulky and practically take up half the space in the trunk, leaving little room for anything else. So, although having a container around is something people should do, very few people actually do because it's impracticable.

Products That Help Jog Your Memory


Brain & Memory Fitness TrainerYou know the story about Chinese food, right? "The problem with Chinese food is that no matter how much you eat, in 20 minutes you're hungry again."

Have you heard this variant of the anecdote?

"I went to see the Chinese movie, Curse of the Golden Flower, but 20 minutes after I left the theatre, I forgot what it was about."

Or this one?

"We saw the film "The Banquet," and not only were we hungry 20 minutes later, but we had to see the movie again!

I used to laugh at these "jokes." Now... well, I'm a little sensitive about my memory. I can't seem to recall the names of movies, the stars, even the plots of movies I've seen recently...and these movies were not even Chinese!

Ewaste Makes N+ew Seat


Sometimes when in search for something, such as the remote control, what you find instead: your lucky pair of frog socks, 2 dollars worth of quarters and an unexpectedly good poem you wrote several years ago, makes your search all worth while.

JumpSnap, the Jump Rope Without a Rope


Exercise whether it be: yoga, walking, running, aerobics or even martial arts, has always been a big part of my life. I've always found some way to stay fit, but at about every 2 years or so I hit a rut. I get distracted, perhaps bored, and I allow myself to allow work and my kids to keep me too busy to make the time to exercise.

It's been six months worth of distractions this time and very little exercise has been a part of my routine, except for the occasional sun salutation in my living room at night. In six months I feel like my body and mind have aged five years and not in a healthy kind of way. So now, I'm desperate and looking for ANYTHING to get me motivated and back in shape again, on a consistent basis. read more »

Say Goodbye to Lightbulbs As You Know Them


Last month, in an attempt to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, the Australian government announced that it will begin a nationwide phase out of incandescent light bulbs. Incandescent bulbs, introduced more than 125 years ago, convert the majority of used energy to heat rather then light. In view of this, Australian environment minister, Malcolm Turnbull, plans to work with the states to ban incandescent bulbs by 2010. Which means, in about three years from now, lightbulbs that do not meet energy efficiency standards will no longer be available for sale in Australia. Some exceptions include: medical lighting and oven lights.
