In 1983, a 3-D block un-building game launched a thousand cries of frustration when Jenga hit store shelves. This family favorite party game requires players to remove one block at a time without destroying the tower. Hilarity ensues.

PadGadget’s DIY iPad Project Spotlight: Floppy Disc iPad Sleeve and Stand

DIY iPad Floppy Disc Sleeve 3

I have a friend that recently inherited a huge box of floppy discs. He has this clever idea for recording a one-minute song on them and giving them away. The average person won’t even be able to listen to the music, thus making the recording super rare.
