    Wii Hacked to Play Homebrew Games

    Thanks to a newly-found flaw in the Flash Player that’s used on the Wii’s Internet Channel, hackers have finagled a way to allow regular people like you and me play homebrew games on the little white console. Aside from original homebrew titles that could be made available, the entire catalog of NES games could probably be made available as one downloadable package pretty… Read More

    Apple's iPhone to Germany's T-Mobile

    If you live in Germany, want an iPhone, and are okay with T-Mobile, then this post is for you. Otherwise, enjoy some Steve Vai. Ok, now that the American’s aren’t reading, I can tell you that the iPhone is almost certainly coming to T-Mobile in Europe, and soon. Not just because Jobs was seen toting one around Berlin recently, but because some fool datamonkey accidentally pre-posted… Read More

    iLike's Wonderful Facebook Problem

    I had a chance to visit music social network iLike’s Seattle offices yesterday to meet with co-founder Hadi Partovi. The first thing I noticed when I walked into the office was a flat panel display showing key real time stats for the company – see image to the right. I took a picture as Partovi looked on nervously. These stats haven’t previously been publicly disclosed, but… Read More

  • Older Video Game Commercials > Newer Video Game Commercials

    Now, friends, we’re playing with power. Who here remembers this old school Nintendo commercial, complete with R.O.B. and the real light gun, not this Zapper nonsense? I don’t, per se, because I was about 2-yeard-old at the time, but the point remains: video game commercials used to be so cheesily magnificent it’s a shame what they’ve become. Shall we? Read More

  • Loopt Service Coming To Sprint

    Loopt Service Coming To Sprint


    Loopt has announced their partnership with Sprint to bring the first social mapping service to the US of A. For those unfamiliar with Loopt you need only to look at Boost Mobile and their “Where you at?” campaign. It essentially keeps tabs on your friends in your Loopt network and shows you where they are via GPS. Helio has a similar service with Buddy Beacon. Sprint customers… Read More

    Sprint Launches loopt, First Social Mapping Service

    Are your friends avoiding you? Are they really getting together without you? Well, Sprint probably didn’t have tracking in mind when they announced loopt, but this first-ever social mapping service on a major U.S. carrier will help you know if you’re being given the brush-off. More importantly it will help make sure you don’t miss your friends, as the service uses GPS… Read More

    Verizon's FiOS TV 2.0 Begins Its Slow Rollout


    Groundbreaking! Hey, John, I like FiOS. Nuts to your crazy, East Asian “technology,” OK? Now, thanks to Zatz, I can look (no touching!) at FiOS TV 2.0, what the kids will call IMG. The jazzed up interface++, which now includes super helpful widgets and a free hard drive space indicator(!), is currently available in select FiOS neighborhoods. Verizon is expected to announce… Read More

    TeleNav "Share Your Location" Contest Winners


    Hey folks, back on July 6 we wrapped up a contest for TeleNav’s GPS Navigator service awarding two lucky readers a Bluetooth GPS receiver and 3 months of TeleNav service. People entered. We picked winners. And then we promptly forgot to ever mention the winners. Our bad. As you may recall, the contest involved coming up with a creative way to use the service’s… Read More

  • Before and After, PSP Edition: Slim vs. Fatso

    Before and After, PSP Edition: Slim vs. Fatso

    Can you handle even more pics of the new and improved Sony PSP? Can you handle comparison shots between the PSP Fat and the PSP Slim? I actually just went into cardiac arrest checking out the side by side pictures of the two systems. The two more or less look the same, but the Slim is shinier than the Fat as well as “more roundie” as GamePro put it. Like Hickey pointed out… Read More

  • The Video You've Needed All Day

    While watching Peter Frampton videos for a bit on YouTube, I came across this bitchin’ Whitesnake video that features Steve Vai. What makes it so special? Try the heart-shaped, three-neck guitar that Vai is playing some insane solo on. It’s pretty much like watching Jesus play with the iPhone, except better. Oh but you thought that was it, right? Hardly. Vai then points to… Read More

    Gears of War, Unreal Tournament 3 Coming To Mac

    A few years ago, if someone said “You can’t use a Mac as a gaming machine!”, I’d reply “Yeah, I’ll give you that one.” Alas, things have changed dramatically since then. The now-Intel-based Macs are faster than ever and more and more games are finding their way to OS X. Epic Games Vice President Mark Rein has now revealed that the highly anticipated… Read More

    What's Your Favorite Facebook App?

    Facebook and I are no longer on speaking terms, but these kids today sure do love them some Facebook Apps. There’s gotta be two, maybe three Apps by now, and Wired would like to know—for reasons unknown—what are your favoritest. Right now, the Google Reader Shared Items App is in the lead with 29 yeas and 14 nays. The least popular is Shelfari, which tells your friends what… Read More

    Nintendo's Harrison Says Game Boy On Its Way Out

    Portable gaming would straight up not exist if it weren’t for Nintendo’s Game Boy. I remember receiving an ORIGINAL model back in 1989 as a gift and I fell in love with it instantly. Tetris, Super Mario Land. Almost every game became an instant classic to me. Now there’s word that Nintendo may retire the Game Boy for good. With increasing popularity surrounding the Nintendo… Read More

    How Big is Too Big? Samsung's 19-inch SENS G25 Notebook

    Personally, I think desktop replacements are a little silly (do iMacs really take up that much space?), but lots of folks disagree with that sentiment, including Samsung. Its upcoming SENS G25 notebook has a laughably large 19-inch display and is buoyed by other components you’d sooner expect in a full on desktop… maybe. Actually, the only “facts” we have now are… Read More

    Louis Vuitton iPhone Cases

    You don’t need to be wealthy to own an iPhone but to be able to spend money on a case that costs nearly twice as much as the phone itself means you’re living the life of luxury. These Louis Vuitton cases can be had at the signature Manhattan 5th Ave. store starting tomorrow for the low price of $225 for the staple monogram case. Expensive, yes, but doable for most.

    Details on Samsung’s latest T-Mobile offering have been leaked and if you’re into QWERTYless phones then the t429 and t729 aka Blast are right up your alley. I for one can only scoff at them because I’m jaded and cranky. The t429 slider has an integrated camera, Bluetooth, IM client, HiFi ringers and vibrating alert! It will make its presence known August 20. The t729 or… Read More

    New Harry Potter Book Leaked Onto Bit Torrent

    First OJ’s book, now Rowling’s. Seems the latest book in the Harry Potter series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”, has been leaked onto Bit Torrent. The book was leaked onto Demonoid and quickly spread to other sites in the form of two torrents. One of the torrents features only 495 pages of the book while the other is complete. However, users who have downloaded… Read More
