…Antec’s Skeleton is from the future?

Antec Skeleton

Antec’s Skeleton is a fantastically futuristic looking PC case that claims to be the world’s first open air case.

    With a unique design that allows for unprecedented airflow, a front 92mm fan, and a top three-speed 250mm fan with multicolor LED customization, the Skeleton goes utterly unmatched in stylish cooling. Factor in the layered component trays for top-notch convenience, as well as the rackmount quality side rails, and you have a case truly without equal.

Though it definitely won’t blend in under your desk, this frag factory isn’t designed to, and if you’re the type of person that builds and customizes your machine so that you can get props and respect at the local LAN parties, then this might be just what you were looking for to dominate the competition.

…Twhirl might be the best Twitter client?

Twhirl

Twhirl is an Adobe Air based Twitter client that runs on both Windows and Macs, and features the following:

  • Connects to multiple Twitter accounts
  • Notifications on new tweets
  • Shorten long URLs (using snurl or is.gd)
  • Cross-post updates to Pownce and Jaiku
  • Post images to TwitPic
  • Search tweets (using TweetScan or terraminds)
  • Timeline filtering
  • Localized to English, German, Italian and Spanish
  • Color schemes
  • Automatically check for new versions

While I’m currently a fan of Twitterrific, I’ve started to use Twhirl on the Windows based work computer, and definitely like the feature set. It’s easy to use, unobtrusive, and gives you plenty of customization. Plus, Adobe is pushing hard to get developers to work with Air, so there’s a lot of support there for future developments as well.

Maybe it’s time to give Twhirl a whirl.

…Macs can be your alarm clock?

Mac Alarm Programs

For many, the Mac has become their alarm clock of choice, as it can provide the extra customization that your ZZZZ’s need.

To help you decide which of the popular alarm clock programs to pick, The Unofficial Apple Weblog has put together a Tabulator showdown between Alarm Clock, Alarm Clock Pro, Awaken, and Aurora to see which is the winner.

There’s not clear cut winner, so it’s up to you to decide, but whatever you go with, chances are you’ll sleep easier knowing that you’ll wake better as well.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Popurls?

Popurls

Popurls is “the dashboard for the latest web-buzz, a single page that encapsulates up-to-the-minute headlines from the most popular sites on the internet”.

Think of it as the best of the best, gathered up and laid out in a clean and easy to read format, with plenty of customization to make it your own.

If that’s not enough, you can also access popurls on your iPhone, via Twitter, through Jaiku, from Facebook, on the PS3 and PSP, and with the Wii.
