By Nikolaj Borg
Kansas City , MO – A shadowy group of pedestrian hackers called Cross Anytime announced their discovery of several back doors or “cheats” using crosswalk buttons at many intersections. The 3658-item list has been released on their website (this site has been closed by the FBI so don’t bather testing it. Chris)

Crosswalk ButtonTom Walker, leader of Cross Anytime said, “There have always been rumors that these codes existed. Mostly, they’re used by politicians and city officials to get an edge in crossing the street. Now, we’ve freed the codes to the world, and everyone can walk without oppression.”

by @ 21:06. Filed under Projects, Skype, Telephony, VoIP

Ever wanted to connect a regular phone or a wireless phone to your computer to use with Skype or MSN? Jeroen, aka Mr. Blond, has done the thinking for you and has given us the schematics and pictures to do it. It’s easier then you think!

Jeroen Theeuwes writes: “This whole project started with the fact that my girlfriend (we’re not living together) stopped using her home-phoneline (the contract became too expensive for one person), and I didn’t want to have to call her mobile every time, or using those stupid headsets. And as the chat-cord was not an alternative (not available where I live) I started thinking of building my own.” Read about his findings and see how you can build your own.

Love toaster
Straight up, this is the coolest thing I have ever seen (you mean this week, right? – Ed!). This bad boy is gonna get you some lovin like you wouldn’t believe! The Love Toaster ($78) toasts the message ‘I Love You’ onto every round of freshly toasted bread, thanks to a special metal plate inside the unit. Like it matters, but you also get a removable bread crumb tray, variable browning control, and cool touch walls. Don’t say it with flowers – say it with toast. And tell her that Chopper sent ya! Yeah, man.
