Mark Fiore’s Technology is an animated short film that dares to ask (and rhyme) what happens when technophiles fully unplug from Twitter, Facebook and MySpace. Thanks, Chris!
We’ve seen Twitter for power usage and watering plants, but the Tweeting Kegerator is easily the most useful: it monitors beer temp, handle pulls and brew levels; follow it on Twitter.
Single-use websites are all the rage nowadays, but we couldn’t help having an existential pale blue dot moment with How Many People Are In Space Right Now; RSS feed here.
Blending old world style with new world tech, Bill Guffey’s Google Street View Art may seem worldly but is painted entirely from his home in rural Kentucky; yes, Google says it’s okay.
There was no way we couldn’t post Gold4JetPack.com: sure, it’s a goofy pre-order ad for Dark Void that spoofs Cash4Gold.com, but most importantly, it mentions the word Awesomer.
Moonbell isn’t quite a game–it uses topographical data from Japan’s Kaguya satellite that lets you play the Moon’s surface like a record; choose from Orbit Play and Free Scratch modes.

iGoogle, Google’s formerly plain-jane web portal page, has recently been revamped with social networking features including 19 social gadgets that you can share with friends.
As if our lives aren’t already consumed by tweets and status updates, these Social Media Pillows let you pimp out your pad with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and MySpace icons.
Translation Party shows the meaning behind lost in the translation: it repeatedly takes a phrase between Japanese and English, with often unintentionally humorous results. Thanks, Scott!
Build-your-own-car tools are a ubiquitous on automaker sites, but Ford’s 2010 Mustang Customizer ups the ante with hood scoops, stripes, and even the size of your Stang’s burnout.
Guess the Google is simple but surprisingly addictive game that presents an array of images which you’ll need to guess the search term for; it’s pretty finicky, so get your spelling right.
Pure genius, but also pure annoyance, too: Shirts Taste Good features t-shirts based on Internet memes, with classics like Rick Rollin’, the Aluminum Falcon and Don’t Tase Me, Bro.

Re~Cycle collects second-hand bicycles and ships them to Africa, where they can be used as personal transport, ambulances and more; donate a bike if you’re in the UK, or money elsewhere.
In honor of this Father’s Day, we present to you ManBabies.com: sure, the premise is simple to the point of stupid, but we dare you not to laugh at these father-son odd couples.
Today’s inane entertainment award goes to Hahahaha.fr; it’s essentially a laughtrack tied to your keyboard which, silly as it sounds, had us laughing too (especially with the spacebar).
