  • ScottEVest Secret Sale

    I’m a fan of SeV stuff. Scott essentially makes clothing with lots of pockets for carrying almost anything imaginable. I have one of his jackets, for example, and I’ve carried bottles of J&B Whiskey and laptops without making myself too conspicuous. That said, pop on over to his newly redesigned site and enter the coupon code SITEYES if you like his new site or SITENO if… Read More

  • Belkin, NetGear Skype Phone Test: Two Phones Enter, One Phone Leaves

    While we won’t spoil the surprise on this review, I can say from experience that the Netgear phone is really nice and works extremely well in almost any WiFi environment. Clearly this tips the Laptop hand but both these Skype phones are extremely compact, extremely useful, and very cool. Now slap some Skype into my cellphone, guys, and I will love you forever. Skype Face Off: Belkin vs. Read More

  • Xbox 360 HD-DVD Drive Unveiling

    Kotaku got their hands on a HD-DVD and a few titles and apparently they’re going to way for Britney Rears 5: K-Flo Comes Home in HD-DVD before he tries it out. This, if you didn’t notice, is the first major shot fired in the HD wars this year. The noise about the Samsung/Toshiba versions were just the coda. This is the real deal. If this takes off – and it probably will… Read More

  • Battle Test: Logitech diNovo Edge

    Logitech’s diNovo series is intended for more aesthetically minded consumers. The series found success a couple of years ago with the release of the diNovo Media Desktop, a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard combo that had a separate keypad that could serve as a sort of remote. This year Logitech has decided to revisit the series and give it an Edge, a diNovo Edge, that is. The Logitech… Read More

  • DVRs Force Advertisers To Actually Entertain Viewers


    I’m really sick of advertising companies and the brands they represent crying over the lost revenues from TV viewers skipping over commercials with their DVRs and/or TiVos. While it’s true I do fast-forward through most commercials, I have been known to stop and watch the ones I like. You know, the ones that don’t suck. Apparently, though, the only way companies feel they… Read More

  • EA, Playa Hater

    lying open at just past the denouement while she gets up to stretch and check her old school Palm V which she’s had for years because “newer PDAs have so much accreted junk in the OS, you know?” He then used the comparison of a nice looking girl you might see in a bar and go up and talk to, “And if she’s smart enough, that’s the gameplay. Gears of War… Read More

  • Wake Up

    Many of you might recall a couple weeks ago we gave away tickets to an exclusive Band of Horses show for Seattle area residents. If you’re one of the many who couldn’t get in, or if you just like music in general, keep your eyes on CrunchGear for the next 24 hours.

  • Why wiDock? Why Not?

    long enough to write a quick post about it. The wiDock is one such dock. Why? Because instead of just starting with a lowercase “i” like every other iPod accessory, the wiDock adds a lowercase “w.” Isn’t that special? But there’s more. If you want a charging cradle for your iPod, but not a pesky USB cable, this is for you. Plug your iPod into the dock, as… Read More

  • Fox News Attacks Sony PlayStation Portable

    I’m all for bashing the Sony PSP — it’s an overpriced handheld with a slew of awful games, but this is absolutely ridiculous. Fox 29 News is attacking the PSP for its WiFi capabilities. One of the good things about the handheld device is that it supports multiplayer and web browsing via WiFi (it’s one of the few things that justify the PSP’s price). Fox 29 News… Read More

    The sound is a little rough on this one, but it’s a good effort and you get to see the Zune in her native environment – the sweaty palms of PR people. Read More

  • Can You Tell The Difference Between 1080i And 1080p?


    If you said yes, you’re lying. Or maybe not. CNET executive editor David Carnoy did a little informal testing between HDTVs of 1080p, 1080i and 720p resolutions using Blu-ray and HD DVD content. The verdict: If you’ve got the money to burn on the 1080p set, go for it. If you buy a 720p or 1080i set instead, are you going to regret it later? Probably not. Carnoy says there were… Read More

  • Eager Buyers Line Up For PS3 Too Early

    The picture says it all, doesn’t it? A forum member over at Cheap Ass Gamer caught a picture of hardcore PlayStation 3 fans (or Ebayers) outside of his local Best Buy this week. An employee at the Best Buy stated that they had been there since Monday, so they’ve either got a long haul ahead of them, or those damn Sony PlayStation 3 commercials confused them. Now there are only… Read More
