Not one of the links in this post is worksafe, but you knew that. So: Playboy online just launched a new feature, "Suicide Girl of the week
." I heard about plans for the syndication launch last week from SG
founder Sean in LA, and I understand this is the first time Playboy has ever syndicated another site's
nudes directly on playboy.com (thanks, Michael
). An interesting development, given SG's humble, indie dot-com beginnings. BoingBoing reader matt rhodes says, "You can see the thread on the SG board here
and the Playboy boards are here
. From what I gather, there is some degree of bitching on the Playboy boards. They don't seem to want their nudes with tattoos and piercings." The Suicide Girls may be a first for Playboy, but Playboy certainly isn't the first to syndicate Suicide Girls: Fleshbot
has been featuring a SGOTW since launch.
In other news... SG is launching a bunch of new website content in a beta section called SG Newswire (think hybrid collaborative blog/news format, on music, politics, technology, etc.), plus an RSS feed for SG Newswire, and they've also got another big announcement in the works about a new offline project. If I tell you what it is, hordes of hot chicks clad solely in SG-logo underoos will swarm my office and spank me. And that would be, you know, a bad thing.
This gadget does exactly as promised: it looks like a thumbdrive (sort of) and fries the circuitry of any computer it’s plugged into. It’s made from camera flash parts, is charged with a standard AA battery, and delivers a 300V zap of DC destruction to the port for all your USB-murdering needs. Note that this […]
The Cobham catalog, exposed by The Intercept, features countless pages of surveillance gadgets sold to U.S. police to spy on American citizens: tiny black boxes with a big interest in you. In the creepily bland feature lists and nerdy product names is a whisper of a dark future; perhaps darker than anyone can imagine.
This image depicts the most commonly-found stylesheet colors on the web’s top sites—Paul Hebert did an amazing amount of analysis and this is just one of the intriguing visualizations he came up with. Most of these are obvious staples, especially HTML red and blue, though it’s interesting how far the blue “cluster” is from the […]

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer. The SaberLight’s beam is actually both hotter and cleaner […]
