It's not much more than some gears, a rudder, and a Bluetooth control module, but the simplicity is appealing enough that it reached its $50,000 funding goal in less than eight hours.

Happy Thanksgiving From The Android Police Team - Here Are Some Hand Turkeys We Made

This is a big day for those of us in the US – it's a day of food, family, friends, and more food.

Ridiculous Fishing Review: Why Choose Between Fishing And Hunting When You Can Do Both?

I'll be honest, I've never really understood the appeal of fishing, and the concept of sitting on a boat for hours hoping to get a bite already strikes me as pretty ridiculous. Thanks to grocery stores, I can think of much easier ways to get fish, and with a memory foam mattress, I can think of even easier ways to relax.
