• PX-3000 is a real console but shouldn't be

    [photopress:px_3600_console_2.jpg,full,center] The PX-3000 is a real console that’s based on other real consoles. The PX-3000 also, incidentally, is a piece of garbage. Making the connection, if something that is based on something else is garbage, does that mean the thing it’s based on is garbage? Questions to ponder, friends. px-3600 console fakes xbox, ps2, ps3, wtf? [Technabob] Read More

  • Hands on with Sony PSP headphones, headset

    I’ll be testing these bad boys out a bit later tonight when I get my PSP set up with the latest firmware. Skype and PSP FTW! Read More

  • Razer/THX Mako Advanced 2.1 desktop speaker unboxing

    We’ve covered the Mako speakers on more than one occasion, but now we finally have a set in the office to test out. I think the majority of the team saw, rather, heard these at CES and everyone was blown away at how good they actually sounded. We’ll run a few tests and see who we can piss off in the office in the next couple weeks. In the meantime, enjoy the… Read More

  • MySpace to open up Facebook-like API next week

    [photopress:myspace.jpg,full,center] Facebook is getting huge. Like, jumbo. And MySpace is losing users to it. Sure, most people on Facebook keep their MySpace profile, but that could change, just like it did with Friendster before it got lame. Part of the popularity of Facebook is due to the genius idea of opening up an API, allowing people to make small in-Website applications, like… Read More

  • Panasonic spits out more point and shoots, the TZ4 and TZ5


    The vital statistics:
    9.1 megapixels (8.1 on the TZ4), 10x optical zoom on a Leica 28mm lens, 3-inch LCD (2.5 on the TZ4)
    It’s got all the usual goodies: in-camera red-eye reduction, a pretty solid optical image stabilization system, face detection, and “constant AF,” which sounds annoying but may be useful — I just don’t want that little mosquito-buzz of a… Read More

  • Hitachi brings e-ink to Japanese clamshells, we hope to see it here soon

    [photopress:14445_large.jpg,full,center] We don’t see too many Hitachi-branded mobiles here in the states, but we might soon see the e-ink technology it used with this new Japanese handset. Eschewing the small, LCD screen most clamshells have on the outside, this W61H instead features large e-ink displays. Sadly, there’s not enough powere here to display new texts, but it allows for… Read More

  • WMG to integrate wireless charging in their smartphones


    That’s cool. Wireless Mobile Group will be putting SlashPower wireless power modules in their smartphones so you can just lay the sucker on a pad and get charged on up. Now if we could standardize these things so all our phones used the same charge station, as well as iPods, rechargeable AAs, etc, that would eliminate a lot of cabling from my apartment. One mouse-pad sized station… Read More

  • EMI will give 3 free songs to NY Daily News subscribers

    [photopress:nydn.jpg,full,right] The New York Daily News constantly plays second fiddle to the New York Post. The Post has the trashiest headlines you’ll ever see and the Daily News tries to play catch up. Not next Sunday! Next week, the Daily News teams up with EMI, the first record label to go DRM-free way back in the iTunes Plus days, and will give away three whole songs out of a… Read More

  • SixApart Offers MT Activity Plugin: This Is Good

    SixApart have launched a plugin for MovableType that offers a similar activity stream service to Facebook and Plaxo, but you get to host it. The Action Streams plugin, like Facebook and Plaxo, pulls your data from other services and lists it on the page, for example blog posts, Flickr photos, Tweets and more. The plugin does rely on having MovableType installed, but is self hosted, meaning… Read More

  • From the cheap + weird files: the iPatch iSight camera lens

    [photopress:ipatch.jpg,full,center]Scared that l33t Haxx0rz are able to watch you through your MacBook or iMac’s iSight camera without you knowing it? Always on your best behavior because you don’t know what they’ll catch? Always wearing clothes around your own damn house just because you’re embarrassed they’ll see your naughty bits? Then it sucks to be you… Read More
