If death is your style, a 300-horsepower supercharged model is available. You can even fly up to 15-feet in… Read More

  • 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

  • Love Music? Love

    If you are any way into music and use any semi-popular MP3 player (software-based), you should check out! You install a little plugin onto your PC or Mac and it collects song information from your MP3 player and puts it into a database. So now you can see just how many times you listened to Jimmy Eat World – Sweetness and what albums you listen to are the least popular. Oh and did… Read More

  • The AudioFile: Can't They All Just Get Along?

    Face it, DRM is here to stay. Sure there are cracks (thanks DVD Jon!), file-sharing networks, and Bit Torrent, but the fact is many people are still buying digital music online legally. Some pundits say DRM is either doomed to failure or harmful to the consumer experience because of its increasing lack of interoperability, but I see a clear path through the DRM labyrinth. One company in… Read More

  • Solar Powered GPS Receiver for Hermits, Perverts

    That fancy GPS unit you just got for Xmas isn’t going to do you a whole lot of good in the woods if its battery dies. No, sadly, you’re to be eaten by a bear.
