Beat your computer senseless with a mallet: Computer Coercion Tool

| | | | | | | |

I know every single computer user gets angry at his/her computer once in a while. I know I do! Some people go overboard and actually physically attack the computer (two videos clips as examples: #1 and #2; stories: /. and MSNBC). Instead, use a virtual mallet to hit your computer without any damages with Computer Coercion Tool v1.1. Windows or Linux operating system and OpenGL (video card and driver) required. Cool sound effect and special effects. ;)

Young drivers 'video game mentality'

| | | | | | |

This The Australians' article says young people have a "video game" mentality when it comes to driving, a survey of young drivers has found. The national survey of 300 high school students, conducted by Queensland-based driver education company Safe Drive Training, recorded students' knowledge and attitudes to driving. It found that most young drivers believe high-powered V8 or turbo-charged cars were acceptable for P-platers and that better reflexes can make up for inexperience. Safe Drive Training managing director, Joel Nielsen, said the survey's results reflected the video game mentality of young drivers coming on to the road for the first time.
