Evgeni Malkin
In Game Five of the 2008 NHL Conference Finals between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Philadelphia Flyers, Ryan Malone had the game of his life. The 28 year old left winger scored in the 1st and 2nd period, and had an assist in the 6-0 rout of the Flyers.

“Never, never would have thought it,” Ryan Malone said of playing for the Stanley Cup in the next round of the playoffs. “I don’t think I realized until my junior year of college (at St. Cloud State) I would have a chance to play pro hockey. … It’s pretty special, pretty special and I definitely feel privileged.”

Marc-Andre Fleury was top notch in the winning effort, saving 26 of 27 attempted shots.

“I can’t wait for about 10 days, to start this thing (the playoffs),” said Max Talbot. “It’s good that it’s all (division) games like this until the end of the season. Every little play can change the game and that’s playoff hockey, and that’s what we’re in right now.”

The USB Penguin Optical Mouse

USB Penguin Mouse

Some people are fanatical about Hello Kitty. For others, it’s Star Wars. But for this writer, it’s all about the mighty penguin, as evidenced the penguin MP3 player, USB drive, and shower radio she’s written about, and that fact that she actually owns an iPenguin. This week, it’s the too-cute-for-words USB optical mouse, which fits either hand, and even includes a PS/2 adapter! Choose from Pink, Green, Blue, and of course, Black.  The downside? According to the website, the mouse is only compatible with Windows—but doesn’t state whether it’s compatible with Vista. Available for $14 USD.

Meet the iBird - the penguin MP3 player

Posted by Lolita Beckwith Categories: Music, Portable Audio / Video,

iBird-1000 MP3 Player

Decisions, decisions…the new iPod Touch or the iBird? Granted, this may not be such a dilemma for most, but if you’re a penguin fanatic like myself (or a fanatical Linux user), this is serious business. Why? Because the iBird-1000 is actually a pretty cool MP3 player, with features slightly reminiscent of the iPenguin: its beak moves (chirps?) along with your music, and its eyeballs light up and blink. Cute! Plus, the headphone-wearing bird has a built-in speaker, voice recorder, FM tuner and an tummy with track info. Take that iPod Touch! But there is a downside: the bow-tied cutie only holds 1GB of music. But when you’re that adorable, who needs a touchscreen, wi-fi capability, and tons of megabytes? Right? Available for $33 USD at China Grabber, but unfortunately you must purchase a minimum of ten players. Why, China Grabber, why?

The 1GB USB Penguin Flash Drive: Cutest Gadget Ever?

Penguin Flash DriveWho doesn’t love penguins? The success of Oscar winners “March of the Penguins” and “Happy Feet” proves the world adores that quirky, comical flightless bird. Gadget-wise, we’ve featured the shower radio and iPenguin, which yours truly—who has collected penguins for too many years to mention— happily owns. Now comes the 1GB Penguin Flash Drive, which includes the very handy ReadyBoost technology for Vista users. The penguin’s head actually protects the USB connector…just flip it up and you’re good to go. Impossibly cute and functional, we think Linux users (and fellow penguin-philes) will love it. The 1GB Penguin Flash Drive is available in Black/White or Black/Gray for approx. $34 USD.

Box Office Breakdown:  Almighty Only Does Alrighty

Evan Almighty

Question: When is being the #1 movie just not enough? (Hint:  You have three chances to answer this question correctly).


  1. When the critics don’t really have anything good to say about you
  2. When you made less than 1/2 of what your predecessor did on opening weekend
  3. When it cost over $175 million just to create you

Apparently having God on your side doesn’t guarantee you heavenly box office numbers.  Evan Almighty, the follow-up to 2003’s Bruce Almighty, failed to bring in a large congregation this past weekend.  Although it did better than the rest of the flock, it’s $32 million take paled in comparison to Bruce’s $68 million opening.  And then there’s that glaring $175 million bill…

Of course, we shouldn’t feel so badly about Steve Carell’s career.  I have a feeling that God is providing for him in other ways.
