The geek's way of expressing love

I am not sure about you, but my girlfriend would surely kill me when i gift her this necklace. What's so different about this necklace? Well, its made up of resistors, fuses, and floppy disk parts.

For the lucky geeks whose girlfriend can atleast tell the difference between a notebook and a netbook, this might sound to be a perfect gift idea. For the unlucky once whose girlfriends hate it when you try to be cool with all your geeky knowledge and end up buying expensive gifts after a long fight, this could be the last thing on your mind for a gift.

The Zelle 1337 jewelry starts at a price of $30 onwards. It also comes with a “Certificate of Autheticity” similar to the EULA that came with Windows 95.

I was about to hit the buy button when my tech-ignorant girlfriend's angry face haunted my mind :P

Yahoo! goes social, buys Foursquare rival Koprol

After failing to acquire Foursquare, Yahoo! has finally managed to buy its Indonesian rival Koprol. While Yahoo tried to acquire Foursquare for $100m, the terms of acquisition of Koprol are unknown.

Koprol is a location based social network, which allows its users to 'check-in' on a particular location and share real time information about the place. The ratings and reviews of a particular place (restaurants, bars, cinema halls, etc.) can be accessed by the users existing at that place.

Koprol's acquisition is Yahoo's attempt to go social as well as increase its mobile offerings. "Users are increasingly relying on mobile devices to communicate and access the internet, and they are looking for seamless integration between those devices and PCs," said Rose Tsou, senior vice president of Yahoo Asia.

"Koprol was uniquely designed for mobile phones and within a year has built a strong user base. Yahoo provides the global scale and technology to accelerate growth in Indonesia as well as introduce the service to new markets.", He added.

Yahoo also unveiled a BlackBerry application for Koprol and would be expanding the application base to other platforms soon.

Would Yahoo's attempts to go social and increase its presence in mobile web help the Californian giant to avoid a fade away? Tell us your views in the comments.

WirelessMediaStick streams media to any USB enabled device

WirelessMediaStick, a product by Home Server Technologies Inc., is one of the many goodies that made their first public appearences during the CES 2010. The small USB stick streams media files from a WiFi enabled computer to any USB enabled device, be it a DVD player, digital photo frame, television or another computer.

The plug and play device is compatible with any media player that supports playing or viewing of media through a USB storage device. The device eliminates the need to transfer the media on a flash drive for playing it on the media player. The media stick eliminates the limitation due to the carrying capacity of a flash drive. Any media that is stored on the computer can be streamed to the player. The requirement of a wireless network may put some limitations though. The usage of the media stick remains confined to the region of wireless network.

The WirelessMediaStick can be purchased online from HSTi website for $119.99.
