• Quick Five Minute iPod Touch Unboxing

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf Some quick notes for clarification… 1. I refer to the USB cable as a “power cord to plug it into the computer.” It is, in fact, just a USB cable. There is NO power cord, just the USB cable. 2. My old wireless router was acting up and when I installed a newer and better one, YouTube videos… Read More

  • iPod Touch: OS Sold Seperately

    A few people have recently reported that their iPod Touch came with everything except an operating system. In its place was a simple diagnostic utility which shows details on the usual battery, accelerometer, ambient light sensor, WiFi and oh. What’s this? Temperature? Bluetooth? Cheerios? It is unsure whether this is confirmation of a BT chip as a tap on the icon brings up the words… Read More

  • Lookin' For Some (iPod) Touch? Best Buy Just Got Them

    I just got home from picking up a laptop at my local Best Buy store and, while cruising over to check out the MP3 player selection, I happened upon this little number. According to the sales guy I talked to, most of the stores around the Minneapolis/St. Paul area got them in this afternoon, special delivery. This was confirmed by a manager I spoke with who said, “They came in this… Read More

  • Back To School 2007: HD TVs for Cheap


    It’s that time of year when those of a certain age are heading off to school. It’s a middle step in life, not moving into apartments or houses but into dorms, frat houses and various off and on-campus residences. For a lot of you, it’s your first time away from home for an extended period of time. I don’t think I would be going out on a limb by assuming that both money… Read More

  • Back To School 2007: Party Like It's, er, 2007

    My friend Mike said it best when he was about 17 or so. The story goes that his older sister was having a party while their mom was out of town, and he shirtlessly ran down the stairs and yelled, “All you have to do is party!” and then passed out. Or something like that. The point is, he was right: all you have to do is party. If you’re in college and not living the party… Read More

  • IdeaFestival 2007: Day 2, Google Reigns Supreme

    Presentations of any sort are typically boring and I find myself waking up to someone nudging me and wiping off the drool. It happened in college quite a bit and still happens today. Unless you’re talking about something earth shattering then chances are I’m taking a snooze. Google’s Craig Neville-Manning certainly changed my outlook with his unique and quick-witted presentation.

  • Don't Give Up The Fight: Marley Family vs UMG, Verizon

      New developments in the previously reported Bob Marley ring tone fiasco. Seems that Verizon removed most of Marley’s 44 ring tones from its site yesterday but, after the Marley camp went on to state that it was “infurated that Verizon would go around the estate and initiate partnership with Universal”, Verizon put ‘em all back up today.

  • IdeaFestival 2007: Tiffany Schlain Is An Apple Fangirl

    Tiffany Schlain is obsessed with technology and the Internet, which makes perfect sense considering she’s the founder of The Webby Awards. We’re still waiting for ours, Tiffany. ☺ She’s here promoting her new film The Tribe, but her Apple fangirlism was quite apparent. She grew up in the Bay Area and her first computer was an Apple II, which coincidentally was equipped with… Read More

  • Latest iPod UI Is Crap


    Kirk McElhearn hates the new iPod interface and he goes as far as saying that it’s Apple’s stupidest interface innovation ever. Wow. I’m not too fond of it based on my experience with the Nano, but he really hates it. Trying to read text with moving images is annoying and the option to turn it off would be appreciated. I personally could care less about the album art feature. Read More

  • iPod nano (3G) Review

    The iPod nano is the first out of the gate in Apple’s newly revamped line of music players. Available in 4GB ($149) and 8GB ($199) versions (sadly, no 16GB model) and five different colors, the new nano looks pretty funky in its new wide-bodied form factor. The biggest news is the addition of video playback, a bigger and brighter screen, and a revamped interface, but there are plenty… Read More

  • Schwarzenegger Puts The Hammer Down On Teen Drivers In California

    I’m glad I’m not a teen in California anymore because the Governator just put a ban on the use of electronics for teen drivers. It actually works out better that way. As I was channel surfing the other day I came across Dr. Phil and a teen girl was in a driving simulator where she crashed multiple times while trying to text. She didn’t think it was a big deal since it was only… Read More
