It’s Game Day. Let the tailgating commence and the foam finger wars begin.
There’s just one problem that will leave fans bad sports. No one wants to head home to a parent’s basement after the big game. That’s where Gameday Housing comes in to tackle the situation.
Gameday Housing is better than booking a shady hotel. The website helps fans choose from a variety of homes with flat-screen and pool table entertainment. Just rent a home by the college football event and concentrate more on the beer-pong match-ups for later.
Flying on a budget?
Gabriel Nderitu sure is. With no formal education in engineering and nothing but his aspirations to be a role model for kids, Nderitu has put together a pretty formidable-looking aircraft over the course of a year. The aircraft is made out of a Toyota engine and some spare aluminum parts. "Impressive" is really an understatement--regardless of whether or not this thing will ever leave the ground.
It seems like aircraft homemaking has been a trend in Africa for quite awhile now. In 2007, Mubarak Muhammad Abdullahi of Nigeria took flight in his Honda Civic-turned-chopper, leveling out at seven feet off the ground. That may not sound like a lot of distance covered--but then again, when was the last time you or anyone you know built something that could fly?
No word on when these bad boys will be getting iPod connectors and in-flight movies, but we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we find out.

'No, don't worry, I got this one.' A common statement made by college friends and one that you've most likely said before yourself. 'I'll get this round and you'll take the next.' The exchange is usually equal but if not then the paying a friend the next morning scenario can become even more irritating than the hangover.

Microsoft is now going the personal route and might be getting a lot more users soon because of it. Nine new handsets were just revealed this morning by Steve Ballmer for the Windows Phone 7 Global Portfolio in New York City. Ballmer stated, "We focused in on the way real people use their phones...so you're in, out and back to life."
The new software is what's really new with its 'live tiles' look. Without too much nerd talk, the live tiles give the phone a more appealing look when streaming photos or contacts and other tasks rather than just using the individual applications.
Windows Phone has consistently tried to make interacting with a phone a unique and elegant design filled experience. With nine more handsets, looks like the company will have nine more ways to continue that tradition.
Scottish teenager Fraser Doherty will make you feel like you can accomplish anything at a young age. If bitter about not doing so yet, he could also make you feel better by supplying some appetizing and flavorful jam.
Fraser Doherty began making his own jam after being taught by his Gran at 14. "I started selling it to the neighbours and door to door in the area. It slowly started to grow and when I got to 16, I decided to leave school and start making jam all day every day. Which I loved!" Over time the selling turned into the SuperJam business and a real stomach filler for customers. "By the time I was 17, I had come up with the idea of making jam entirely from fruit and at 18 had managed to get it into the major supermarket chain Waitrose."
