This warrants a bit of explanation. A friend of mine is visiting from New York, and she has a friend back home who is dating a guy with a thing for feet. This guy has been hounding my friend who is visiting to do a foot fetish video in which her stockinged foot is rubbing a banana. We thought it would be funny to use my hairy, pasty legs instead. The Enya music makes it, I think. And, no, I don't have a foot fetish.
Mac gaming will become less of a punchline and more of a reality this year, as EA plans to ship the Will Wright-helmed Spore for both Windows and Mac OS X in 2008. That's dependent, of course, on Spore shipping for any platform this year, something that we don't exactly have the highest confidence in. The EA published Spore will come to the Mac platform courtesy of TransGaming Technologies, whose graphics wrapper is reported to make the transition from PC to Mac wicked easy.
EA, who shipped a number of PC games for the Mac last year, plans to have Spore on hand at MacWorld 08, going on right now.

The Gizmodos pranked the Las Vegas Consumer Electronic Show by running around with one of MAKE's TV-Be-Gone devices, turning off ever-increasing numbers of TVs (and documenting it on video). I like the bits when they switch off the show-floor display models, but it shades over into too-mean-for-me when they start to switch off the sets that are being used to display slides and presentation materials from live presenters. Still, no biggie -- just turn the TV back on and you're up.
