  • Reader Response: Holiday SPECTACULAR

    Oh sleepy day. I’ve been cleaning my house half-awake, listening to downtempo. I hope you all are more prepared for the holiday onslaught than myself. So before everything hits, I wanted to take advantage of the Christmas Eve lull to formally announce the next installment of Reader Response, our Holiday SPECTACULAR edition. We’ve got a lot of good stuff for you all this week. Read More

  • Gov. Jeb Bush's Official Portrait Features Blackberry

    Governor Jeb Bush, brother of our current prez, today unveiled his official gubernatorial portrait, which happens to include his trusty Blackberry. Jeb is a power user, from what we can tell, and would often respond to emails from his constituents personally. We salute him for that, and for his acceptance of modern personal technology. While the phrase “sign of the times” is… Read More

  • Dell Pushes Gaming Technology Further

    If you’ve been waiting for something different in gaming PCs to come along by the end of the year, you may be in luck. Dell has got a little teaser up for its new Black Ice (whatever it may be) on its newly designed XPS website, and all it says so far is: Technology like you’ve never seen. Black Ice is coming, exclusively from Dell. Gizmodo guesses that Black Ice is a liquid… Read More

  • Burger King Games Match Gears Of War Sales

    Remember when I said it wouldn’t be a big surprise if those Burger King games for the Xbox 360 sold like crazy? Well, it happened. The games have been out for a little less than a month, but they’ve already hit the 2 million mark, meaning they’ve hit Gears of War status. Sure they’re cheap and there’s three of them, but c’mon, 2 million copies? I… Read More

    It’s over! Seven days of tenacious commenting; seven days of you readers scrambling for a chance to win a Nikon D40 camera kit. We’ve already given away a bunch of SanDisk Cruzer flash drives as part of our Reader Response Festivus Week, but I imagine today is the day you’ve all been waiting for. So who gets the D40?

  • Ben Heck Presents Atari 2600 Portable

    Ben Heck is at it again, and this time he’s decided to go old school (I mean, really old school) and put together an Atari 2600 portable. The Nintendo DS-esque handheld lets you play those old Atari games that most of us have grown to love. Sure, maybe I wasn’t alive when Atari was big, but that doesn’t mean I can’t love it now, does it? Of course you’re gonna have… Read More

  • $2500 PS3 Coming?

    Jumping jeepers, I thought Sony took Kutaragi off direct management of the PS3 because of stuff like this? As it turns out, Kutaragi is “promising” an “AV-centric” PlayStation 3, which will be used for media capabilities other than gaming. The next PS3 not only carries a hefty price of $2,500, it also features a power supply unit, anti-shake insulator, twice the memory… Read More

  • MobiBLU Announces The Cubisto

    If you hate Apple, Microsoft and any other company that makes an MP3 player out there and want something a bit different, check out the Cubisto from MobiBLU. This little guy is small enough to carry around your neck or in your pocket comfortably and has the same unique cube design that the company’s previous players had and can play WMA and MP3 files. Battery life seems to be pretty… Read More

  • Cingular Claims Text Messaging Is “Optional”

    So earlier we reported that you could get out of your Cingular contract due to the hike in texting fees. Well apparently if you go and call up Cingular and use this tactic they’re going to throw the following back in your face: Q. Since Cingular is raising its rates, are customers entitled to cancel service without paying an early termination fee? A. No, that doesn’t apply here. Read More

  • Hey Fatty, Put Down The Cookie And Go To

    It’s the holiday season and you’re bound to pack on a few extra pounds between office parties, family gatherings and parties with friends, mixed with an overloaded, hectic schedule that keeps you from hitting the gym. Or at least that’s what every major media outlet has been telling us year after year. So I figured CG should join the fray and tell you the same… Read More

  • Grown Man Boxes Little Girl, Loses (in Wii Boxing)

    There are few things that could tarnish your manhood more than being out-boxed by a little girl in glasses. I’m trying to think of something and I’m drawing blanks at the moment. There must be something, but it’s not coming to me. At any rate, I think watching the video goes to show just how well the Wii interpolate the gyroscopic data from the Wiimote and Nunchuck. A little… Read More

The ladies will flock to you like pigeons to stale bread. Though the price is right… Read More

  • Christmas Story Leg Lamp

    Yes I know this isn’t even vaguely new, but in the spirit of Christmas, it’s worth mentioning. “A Christmas Story” should be playing on loop 24 hours a day by now and I’m sure everyone can appreciate this piece of cinematic history. You can now purchase this identical replica of the Red Rider Leg Lamp for $145 – $175. It comes packed exactly as it did in… Read More

  • Xbox 360 Warranty Extended to One Year

    Here’s one that hits close to home. I bought an Xbox 360 a couple of months ago and have been really enjoying it. Then Wednesday night, I was about to violate Biggs in “Gears of War” and the DVD drive crapped out. Now my stuff is still under warranty, and I have the Best Buy service plan, but seeing how quickly it exploded, I’m sure others weren’t so lucky. Read More

  • iPod Accessories 2.0

    It may sound soooo last year to talk about “iPod accessories,” but there’s a new wave on the horizon. Or at least there should be. So far, add-ons to the world’s top-selling MP3 player have mostly been limited to relatively basic functions that (as iPod haters love to point out) aren’t included in the player itself, like an FM tuner and transmitter, Bluetooth… Read More
