  • Tattoos for the Indescisive


    For years I’ve considered tattooing various lines of verse and prose all over my back. The problem is that I often change my mind on what lines I’d want to stick on my body (although the opening verse of “The Waste Land” and various lines from Blood Meridian have endured as ideas for sometime). Fortunately for people like me, a new type of ink will soon be introduced… Read More

  • Vaporware 2006


    Wired this morning released its annual vaporware list. It features several new entries from the likes of SED TVs, Will Wright, Skype and more.

That’s right, Duke Nukem Forever, the reigning king of vapor, returns for a record five total years in first place. Wired managed this comment from… Read More

  • Who’s Got The Smallest? Argard’s M10 For Sure

    Though Argard isn’t a household name like Nokia or Jabra, its new M10 Bluetooth headset just might make them one.

  • Teclast Says Touch Me

    Teclast has introduced a new touch-screen MP3 player that’s a smidge smaller than a credit card. Of course, we won’t be seeing one in the States, but hey at least we can dream and drool in the meantime. The C260 features a plethora of goods but unfortunately nothing new or ground-breaking. So this sucka’ has a 260,000 color TFT 2.4-inch QVGA LCD touchscreen, does the amount… Read More

  • Reader Response: Holiday SPECTACULAR Days 01/02


    So I totally intended to post an ifrogz winner yesterday, but it just didn’t happen. Bit too much Maker’s and too many distractions. In fact, I’m still hung over. I’ve been gorging myself on leftovers all day hoping to make myself feel better, but it seems to be having the opposite effect so far. That does, however, mean that today I owe you two winners. The comments… Read More

Only 10 cameras will stream in real time but there’s still an additional 35 cameras that do stills. Worth checking out if you’re a terrorist… Read More

  • Boot The iPod Into Diagnostic Mode

    No lie. One time my cat was playing around with my iPod and when I picked it up, it had a funky debug-looking menu screen on it. I flipped out and thought that my new iPod 5G was totally busted. Well I eventually got it back to its normal mode, but what I didn’t know is that there was a diagnostic menu for testing purposes. In case you want to skip the video, hold the middle button… Read More
