…Ken Block is a gymkhana mad man?

Ken Block Gymkhana

We’ve been teased, taunted and tormented, but at long last, the wait has finally paid off and the new Ken Block Gymkhana video is live and ready for viewing:

Not one to disappoint, this video includes plenty of stunts, danger and destruction, and I caught myself literally staring at the screen with my mouth open in awe at some of the moves that he manages to pull off.

Sure, it takes a bit of a budget and quite the car to pull it off, but if there is anyone out there that can start to compete with Ken in this new sport called Gymkhana, I don’t think the automotive world will know what hit it.

…The Fami-Card is a Nintendo in a cartridge?

Nintendo In A Cartridge

Here’s an interesting idea: Take an NES cartridge, rip out the guts and replace them with an NES console.

Then you can play Nintendo by simply plugging your cartridge into another cartridge!


The end result, called a Fami-Card, features an NES cartridge slot, power and reset buttons, a pair of joystick ports, and composite video and stereo audio outputs.

…The Mac Mini Pro has been made?

Mac Mini Pro

Apple doesn’t make one, so what do you do if you want a mini Mac tower?

Make one yourself.

Seen above are the results of one talented modder’s mission to create a tower out of Mac parts that kept with the general styling of Macputers.

The Mac Mini Pro is built around a Mac Mini, and features an aluminum case that is modeled after the Mac Pro, an additional USB port and power button in the front, and a slide-off side cover that exposes the hard drive for easy swaps.

…FireWire is useful?


Ever wonder what you’re supposed to do with all of those funny looking FireWire ports that are sticking out of the side of your computer? Well thankfully, MacApper has put together a pretty comprehensive guide that covers just about every unique use that you can get out of the USB alternative. Features include:

  • Target Disk Mode
  • Mac-to-Mac Migration
  • Booting form a FireWire device
  • FireWire 800

Though underappreciated, the FireWire port may surprise you with its usefulness, so be thankful for its inclusion, because you never know when it’s going to come in handy.
