If the rumours are to be believed Google are readying another weapon in the quest to assimilate the entire internet. Google Base looks like a sort of information free-for-all where you can put “stuff”, tag it, and get it indexed. Ars Technica have a more coherent and detailed look at the idea.

CatBib

If I didn’t know better I’d swear this was something from the pages of The Onion but unfortunately I think it’s the real deal. Worried about your cat catching birds? Strap a neoprene bib around it’s neck so it can’t actually strike them.

iZ Musical Dancer

As you can probably tell by the picture this is one strange gadget, if we had to guess what it was just by looking at it we’d also struggle.
