You know, for being ‘Romantic Mode’ I feel like something’s missing…
This is a video demonstration (NOT demon-station, which is where you catch the train TO HELL) of Youtube user dereklmy’s automated dorm room at the University of California Berkeley. If you only watch the first two minutes of the video you might think the automation is limited to opening the blinds and turning lights on and off. But eventually it gets to various modes he’s preset, including a romantic mode (complete with Elton John’s ‘Can you Feel the Love Tonight?’) and an emergency party button that turns on the strobe and blacklights and starts blasting techno and shooting laserbeams. Man, I would party in there. No, no I wouldn’t. But I would romantic mode in there. Even if my roommate was only pretending to be asleep.
Hit the jump for the video but skip around because five minutes is way too f***ing long for anything but the best compilation videos.
Question by Gabrielle: Dorm issue, again, please help!?
Hi, I asked this question before, but I didn’t really get any answers that led to anywhere. Does anyone know of a website that definitely carries organic twin xl sheets? It is really hard to find apparently, and I really need them! Please let me know, thanks!
I would also be open to bamboo, but I prefer organic cotton because I know for sure it’s managed better

Last week, Acer unveiled a handful of back-to-school laptops, and today, the outfit’s showing off gear for kids who’ve got a teensy bit more room in the dorms. The company just trotted out a pair of desktops, along with the beastly 23-inch T231H multitouch monitor. Both towers have a staid black chassis with Acer’s clear.fi media streaming software on board. Of the two, the M series (pictured) is clearly for power users, with Core i3 and quad-core AMD Athlon II x4 processor options, 6GB of RAM, 1TB of hard drive space, optional discrete graphics, and a storage tray on top housing four USB 2.0 sockets and headphone and mic ports. The X series, meanwhile, has a trimmer, more compact design, and a modest spec list featuring Intel Pentium dual-core and AMD Athlon II X4 processors, 4GB of RAM, and integrated graphics. As for that 1080p display, it has an 80,000:1 contrast ratio and tilts between a 5-degree and 60-degree angle — not unlike that swiveling HP all-in-one that came out earlier this year. They’re all up for grabs now, with the M and X series starting at $ 500 and $ 398, respectively, and the monitor fetching $ 330. Full PR after the break.

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget question is coming to us from Wayne, who quite obviously needs a recommendation on a new all-in-one PC before hitting the books for the fall semester. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.
“Hi. I’m about to be crammed into a dorm room for a few years, and I need a decent all-in-one PC for my desk. Space is an issue, but anything from 20- to 23-inches would work. Mac or PC is fine for the stuff I’ll be doing, but I’d like to keep it all under $1,500 if possible. Any strong recommendations from other students who were / are in a similar situation?”
So, froshies — what’s it gonna be? He didn’t mention the need for a touch panel, so you can obviously whittle down your choices somewhat. Anyone have a particular AIO that has treated them to straight As? Let us (and Wayne) know in comments below.
