  • Renault Concept Car With Two iPod Docks

    Renault unveiled their new concept car, the Twingo, last week.

  • Hackers Needed To Break $100 OLPC Laptops

    On October 2, One Laptop Per Child put out an open call to “hackers” to try and break the $100 laptops, named the 2B1, so they don’t hit the open market full of security holes. Apparently the comments made by Ivan Krstic at the Toorcon computer security convention (and reported by TG Daily) were off the record, though.

    If you’ve had a chance to experience the phenomenon that is World of Wacraft or have had end-on-end guild battles in Guild Wars, you know that the world of a MMO is its own reward.

  • Zune Unboxing Hits the Web (via CBS News)

    We’re not sure what’s pissing us off more: the fact that Microsoft keeps scooping us on things like this Zune unboxing video and then try to pass off as “buzzworthy”, or that they feed it to goddam CBS News, who plays it in the middle of the day or during primetime, instead of to us, where there are readers who care. They’ve been doing a lot of this. Along with… Read More

  • Nike+iPod Hands On

    I know this is a bit late in the game for this device, but I got a chance to strap these things on recently and wanted to report on the general value of the Nike+iPod line. First off, this kit has one fatal flaw – they really only work with the Nike+ shoes which come in only one or two models. A buddy of mine cut a hole in his old shoes and stuffed the transmitter in there, shown here… Read More
