No Snapple in the Snapple Machine?  Gordon better watch his back.  That's probably where Mr. Red Shirt will get it from...not the lowly coffee machine.

Haha, those cupcakes are hilarious/awesome. I think that would be the way to go to get a good reaction from anyone!  Sounds like a good time, pizza, beer, cupcakes at work!?

What's so evil about that cute little R2D2 coffee machine?  It's only goal in life is to, err... protect and to serve? ... and to haunt your dreams at night.  Actually, I've used them in motels and never felt the need to pull a weapon on them.  The coffee's not bad either.

Is the Tech mag being offered to subscribers or do I have to search for it?  Anyone know?

Maximum Tech does not yet have a subcription offer, so (yeah) you will have to look for it on newsstands. That said, our circ department is working on a system where you can order any issue, one at a time, directly via this website. Hopefully that will roll out soon.

No safety glasses? Seriously?? After all the harping you guys have done about how dangerous they are and admitting that Wicked Lasers sent you some? Shame on you!

OK, good point about not wearing safety goggles, and I almost thought about making sure an explanation was in the writeup above, but I'll explain now, and also edit in the explanation in a few minutes. Here's the deal: A laser beam is a highly collimated beam of light -- all of the light's photons are moving in exactly the same direction, at the same wavelength, and in an extremely focused beam. This means if you look directly into the beam, you will burn your retina. And if you look at the reflected light of the beam -- the dot, as it were -- you'll burn your retina. But looking at the beam itself actually isn't dangerous -- precisely because the light is so highly collimated. Now, granted, if someone had dropped a laser, or turned it at someone else in a flash of forgetfullness, that would have been bad. But we were very careful, and always ran a series of verbal call/response checks before the lasers were turned on, and when it was safe to pull off goggles.

Holy Poop is that a bottle of grolsch in the 3rd picture? who drinks that stuff? honestly... that stuff is craptastic

Nope there is no Grolsch in that picture. There is Blue Moon a lovely white belgian beer. Heineken which never tastes as good when it is exported and Stella Artois.
