  • Okoro's $4,595 OMS-GX300 Media Center

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/or don't play on their TVs because using a keyboard and mouse on your couch is inconvenient at best. However, with Vista now able to natively handle an Xbox 360 controller it makes a bit more sense to have a Media Center that’s capable of handling graphics-intensive games. And that’s where the $4,595… Read More

  • Hipster Double-Wide


    I was flipping through the Feb. issue of Wired earlier and I came across the Glassic Soho trailer. Now it’s no secret that I’m from the South. That said, I’ve set foot in my fair share of trailers—hell I know more than a few people who live in them. But this model, created by architect and furniture designer Christopher Deam and manufactured by Breckenridge, is… Read More

  • Clocky Is Now Shipping!

    In all likelihood, when you first came across Clocky, it was still just a project from the mind of MIT student Guari Nanda. Now Clocky has grown into a full-fledged product and I totally want one! It works just like a normal alarm clock except that if you hit that snooze button, Clocky is going to roll away from you so that you’re forced to wake up and find it. You can snag one now for… Read More

  • Hot Jugz Personal Shower


    Believe it or not, Hot Jugz is not the name of a porn star from 1983. It’s a personal outdoor shower. It’s comprised of a two-gallon container that can keep your hot water warm and has a shower wand for helping dirty people get clean. It requires no power and can go for sixteen minutes with just a few pumps on the container. There’s a bunch of different models available and… Read More

  • BGR Plays With The Motorola MAXX Ve

    They’ve done it again! Our peeps over at Boy Genius Report got their paws on on a spankin’ new Verizon MAXX Ve from Motorola. Equipped with an auto-focusing 2MP camera and MP3 playback, the MAXX looked like a promising phone until I scrolled down and saw this… Read More

  • LG SV260 Nags And Then Nags Some More

    Seems as though LG’s new SV260 Premium Folder flip phone has some very enticing features only a business person would love. Its Motiquette (Mobile Etiquette) option for example switches to text-only communication for when you’re in those oh-so-very important meetings. The Voice Secretary provides nagging reminders of your next appointment. There’s a TTS (Text to Speech)… Read More

  • Anthrax Guitarist Can't Play His Own Song In GH2

    http://www.dovetail.tv/player.swf?contentId=1606&server=www.dovetail.tv&thumbnailPath=Zen%20Media%20Group%2Fguitar-hero%2Ejpg Meet Scott Ian. You either remember him from the band Anthrax like I do, or you’ve at least seen him doing bits on VH1. Either way, he’s a guitarist and a good one to boot, but when Scotty goes to play an Anthrax song in Guitar Hero 2, things… Read More

  • Belkin Wi-Fi Phone For Skype

    http://video.google.com/googleplayer.swf?docId=-6338486291606550545&hl=en I’m a little late to the pleasures of Skype-ing, but Belkin was kind enough to loan CrunchGear one of its Wi-Fi phones to use with the service. Setup was easy, just connect to a network (it tells you if there’s an open one to connect to or you can type in an SSID and password for a secured one) and… Read More

  • Apple TV Goodness

    As if you weren’t sick to your stomach with all the Vista hoopla going around today. Here’s a quick vid running you through the Apple TV interface. Woohoo…I think. Apple TV [TechEBlog] Read More

  • Geek Proposes Via Dashboard Widget

    Some would call this a story of love between two geeks. Apparently, some dork who goes by the username “Bjorn” on Flickr proposed to his girl by coding out a custom Dashboard widget. Shaped like a ring box, the widget has an image of a diamond engagement ring and the message “Jennifer Christensen Will You marry me?” He told her to hit F12 and the rest is history. Awwww.

  • A Copy of Windows Vista Ultimate and His Boy

    slightly embarrassing turn on the Daily Show, Bill and Steve finally pushed Windows Vista out onto the world. As I write these words her majesty, the Vista, is installing herself on my PC, grinding away at my RAID like a champ. Read More

  • Twinhead Durabook Rugged Notebooks


    As a person who is admittedly more than a little clumsy, I’ve always been intrigued by these rugged notebooks. I’ve tripped over the power cord of my Powerbook, sending it sailing across the room more times than I can count (the thing is dented to hell now). It performs noticeably less than adequate now as a result. Twinhead Corporation is releasing two notebooks that could… Read More

  • Samsung L74 Wide


    Samsung’s camera division has been busy lately. Yesterday we saw the NV11 and the i7, today we’ve got the L74 Wide. This 7-megapixel camera is equipped with a 3.6x optical zoom on its 28mm wide-angle lens. It features a 3-inch touchscreen LCD through which most device functions are controlled. Like other new Samsung cameras, it features face recognition AF and AE. It also has… Read More

  • Apple Finally Releases 802.11n Enabler

    A while back, we reported that Apple would be releasing an 802.11n enabler as a software download for $1.99. Sure enough, look what has showed up on Apple’s website. The download allows for you to unlock 802.11n wireless capabilities in the following Macs: • MacBook Pro with Intel Core 2 Duo
    • MacBook with Intel Core 2 Duo
    • Mac Pro with AirPort Extreme option

  • Bill Gates on The Daily Show Humping for Vista

    http://www.comedycentral.com/motherload/syndicated_player/index.jhtml You don’t need any silly blogger to convince you that Vista is by and far the best Windows operating system yet. No, you need Microsoft’s chairman Bill Gates, who sat down last night with the Daily Show’s John Stewart for quite awhile and discussed the OS, as well as password protection and that pesky… Read More

  • The Mac Basement Collection


    Well this is about the darndest thing I’ve ever seen. In our scouring, we uncovered a Flickr photoset of a person who has seemingly every Apple Macintosh device ever made in an elaborate basement setup. You name it and this person seems to have it. I think the real question is, who has the money to do something like this? People with more money than me, clearly. Flickr Photo Set Read More

  • Meet D.A.V.E., Our Friend From Seagate

    http://www.podtech.net/player/podtech-player.swf?bc=3F34K2L1 While D.A.V.E. isn’t the most clever acronym in town (it stands for Digital Audio-Video Experience), it looks to be a promising gadget thanks to its slim design and features. Seagate’s D.A.V.E. is basically a small, 20GB hard disk with Bluetooth and WiFi built right into the device. You can transfer files to and fro… Read More

  • Raise Hell With A GPS/GSM Jammer From DetectNu

    Aside from a traffic light changer/MIRT, a GSM/GPS jammer is second on my list of devices I should own, but don’t because I’m trying my hardest not to be a jerk. However, if I ever do feel like being a bit of a devious bastard, I can order this GSM/GPS Jammer from DetectNu, maker of radical spy gear. The device plugs right into your vehicle’s cigarette lighter for mobile… Read More

  • Apple Poops Out Multicolored iPod Shuffles

    Damn you Apple. You sure do like to tease us, eh? You take down your entire online store to get us all wound up then drop a big pile of colored iPod Shuffles on us while you laugh and call us girly names. You can now scoop up a Shuffle in pink, orange, lime, blue, and silver – similar to the original iMac colors and all are available to buy right now. But why no previous announcement… Read More
