  • Reader Response: Countdown to CES Day 01

    Happy Jan. 2! You know, I only recently got used to writing 2006—and now it’s 2007. I wonder if I’ll adapt to writing the correct date sometime this side of July. At least on CrunchGear, WordPress handles the date for me. I bet you all are waiting eagerly for your daily winners, which is good, because I have them for you. Two of ‘um. A lucky pair who will each be… Read More

  • Purported Transformers Gadget-bot Prototypes

    We always discuss handy gadgets that fit in your pockets; cellphones, digital cameras, game systems. But, like many of you, we got our love of all things gadgety via a lovely line of toys from the early-to-mid ’80s: Transformers. That’s why we find it exceedingly fitting that the script for the new Michael Bay Transformers film, opening July 4th, calls for a handful of gadgets… Read More

  • The Sucky Future Is Now: In-Car WiFi

    Further adding to the headache that is the rental car experience, Avis will be adding WiFi services to all of its rental cars as an add-on service, starting next year. Autonet Mobile, the provider of the service, is poised to announce the deal at CES, but we caught early wind via the NY Times. For $11 a day, you can download porn at 60MPH, which, really, is the fulfillment of the original… Read More

  • Stain Detector Helps Detect Grody, Invisible Stains

    While it’s being marketed as a tool to help you find hidden stains so you can make your pad smell better, we know it’s really so you can all play CSI at home. The Stain Detector Light uses the same UV technology that the detectives use to find “protein stains”, blood, bile, or, uh, what-have-you. Wanna scare someone? Visit them in their hotel room with this thing pointed… Read More

  • AT&T Completing Cingular Merger, Confusing Mobile History Buffs

    You might recall a few years back when Cingular bought out AT&T Wireless for billions of dollars. As turn-about is fair play, AT&T is now poised to acquire Cingular. Of course, AT&T Wireless was an entirely separate company than AT&T, it was spun off as an independent and allowed to use the brand. That AT&T, of course, was bought out by SBC last year, who then renamed… Read More

  • Stackable Hard Drives; Lego Styling

    , and we love portable digital storage, so of course we’re nuts over these Brick Desktop Hard Drives from Lacie. Weighing in at capacities from 160GB to 500GB, the color-coded bricks stack up just like Lego bricks. With a few terabytes worth of storage, you could create a fortress around your desk to defend yourself from your co-worker’s horrible looks of arrogant adultism. The… Read More

  • Got Cash And Want Water-Based Thrills? Check Out Seabreacher

    This is certainly one of the more extreme watersport toys available. The $78,000+, custom-made Seabreacher is a force for H2O to reckon with. Sort-of like a jet-ski, this dolphin-shaped vessel comes with 175-horsepower motor to propel you through water (and out if it) at extreme speeds. If death is your style, a 300-horsepower supercharged model is available. You can even fly up to 15-feet in… Read More

  • New iPod Speaker System Has An Outie


    Those in the market for a higher-end iPod sound system will want to check out the $549 George, the first product to roll out from digital-audio manufacturer Chestnut Hill Sound. One of the edges it has on other systems is its unique wireless remote, which has a full-on knob for navigating your iPod’s menus on its high-resolution, backlit graphic display. You can use it to select music… Read More

    For any surfers, divers, watermen/women in the CG audience Hangair has a pretty bitchin way to dry your wetty.

  • My Cool Friend The iHolic

    Korea’s Dacos has launched a new mp3 player with DMB support. I know I know, we can’t get it here so why even bother telling you about it. Because I like to irritate you all at work! That’s why, got a problem with that? :) The iHolic comes with, what seems to be a new standard in screen size, a 2.4-inch TFT LCD. It kicks some serious ass because it comes with its own… Read More
