• Review: Tokyoflash Star Performer and Zero-G watches

    Katana and Watchizaki
    You must have heard of Tokyoflash. They’ve got the coolest watches on both this and that side of Japan, and also make the best of those binary-time watches that puzzle you whenever you see them. I have two specimens of Tokyoflash gear right here with me — are they as solid as they look on the site? Read More

  • Polska wersja Conan-a Barbarzyncy wkrotce

    The first MMORPG translated entirely into Polish, Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures should hit your blok on May 20, ensuring that those who enjoy pierogi will also enjoy playing as Conan the Barbarian in their own lilting mother tongue. Video slightly NSFW. Read More

  • Wix: The Bold Web Content Creator

    Cluttered and candy-coated are two ways to describe Wix, a new Flash-based website and widget creation tool that we’ve been anticipating for months. It’s also feature-rich, very well-designed, and – sorry – still in private beta. Wix joins a multitude of browser-based website creators such as Weebly, Synthasite, and Google Pages. But it reminds me the most of Sprout… Read More

  • Hey That's Pretty Smart – Amazon Launches A Gadget Blog

    The big three gadget blogs (Engadget, Gizmodo and CrunchGear) (ok, kidding about CrunchGear, but it is doing very well) have a little more competition starting today: a new gadget blog called End User. The site is published by Amazon. The blog authors are all Amazon employees and write for EndUserBlog as well. This is the same model for a few other blogs that Amazon publishes… Read More

  • New Mini-ITX mobos from Intel hint at more tiny PCs

    Two new Mini-ITX motherboards from Intel have been recently spotted — the Eklo and the Fly Creek. The Mini-ITX segment has been long populated by Via and its C7 line of processors, which have catered to small form factor system builders, but Intel appears to be eyeing the low-cost, tiny desktop market as well. The Fly Creek motherboard can apparently support Intel’s GMA X3500… Read More

  • Trolltech's QT, Ubuntu coming to Nokia Internet tablets

    I’m a fan of the Nokia 800-series Internet tablets, and Nokia is making effort to keep them current. It recently bought Trolltech and is in the process of finalizing the purchase. Trolltech makes the QT applications platform that many devices use, and Nokia is no doubt planning on bringing QT to the N810 and perhaps future tablet devices. What’s also notable is Nokia is working… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Advance Wars Days of Ruin for DS, $16.99


    I’ve only played the Game Boy Advance versions of the Advance Wars series, but from what I hear, they just keep getting better. Days of Ruin, the latest installment, is supposed to be no exception, though it’s a break from the light, cartoony style of its predecessors. The darker art style and more mature plot might help people understand that this is, indeed, a very deep… Read More

  • Lowepro Primus AW is the most eco-friendly camera bag


    I’m really digging on Lowepro’s gear lately. The Fastpack I reviewed a couple months back is still in great shape. I’ve got the Flipside, which is fantastic. I still have to do a formal review on it, but it’s phenomenal. Anyway, this being Green Week for us, I thought I’d share the Primus AW with you all. It’s Lowepro’s most eco-friendly pack and… Read More

  • Presdo, The Magical Online Scheduler

    I want you to stop what you are doing right now and go try Presdo. It is a deceptively simple online scheduling assistant that is a prime example of what a modern Web app should be. It only shows you what you need to see at the moment that you need to see it. And it understands what you want to do based on normal (and not-so-normal) English that you type in. “We actually threw a… Read More

  • Skype releases voice client for a plethora of cellphones [UPDATED]

    Running a Skype client on a cellphone isn’t really new, but this is the first time Skype has made it’s own client available for almost 50 different models, including many popular low-end and mid-market phones. The new client allows you to talk connect your cellphone to your Skype account. It uses cellphone minutes like usual, but adds all your Skype conacts and gives you a… Read More

  • Dark Sector walk-through

    I just got this game so this is of some interest to me, but D3PA just released a fairly official walk-through with info on all the goodies to be found in the game. Just in time for the weekend, D3PA has released their official Dark Sector: Walkthrough
    Guide. This guide contains exclusive tips, strategies and item pick-ups for players
    to successfully complete Dark Sector. As you know, if you… Read More

  • Minggl Offers (Yet) Another Way to Keep Tabs on Your Friends

    It’s almost painful to write about a social news aggregator these days. We’ve covered well over a dozen of them, most of which do nearly the exact same thing. It’s getting ridiculous. With so many on the market, it goes without saying that most of these are going to fade into obscurity in the next six months. Which is why I hope Minggl was telling the truth when they told… Read More

  • The first hands-on with the WildCharge adapter

    iPhoneBuzz grabbed an exclusive look at the new wireless charging. The technology is still in its early stages and actually quite kludgy but to be able to drop my gadgets on my bedside table and have them charge overnight would be amazing. Right now they have iPhone and iPod adapters and the final product will cost about $59 and the separate charging cases will cost about $10. Read More

  • HTC readying two new CDMA, 3G, slick-looking handsets

    Though we can’t say we’re friends with the interface (we’re looking at you, Windows Mobile), we love what HTC does. They make high-end, usually OEM smartphones for the business crowd, and lately they’ve been paying a lot more attention to design, something it’s never been known for before. HTC has a pair of new phones coming to replace the Mogul and TyTN series… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: No Wii, DS price cut, says Nintendo

    Those of you without a Wii or DS, don’t expect a price cut on either any time soon. Nintendo, which doubled its operating profit this past fiscal year, says it has no plans to lower the price of either system any time soon. And why would they? If people keep buying them at the current price—the Wii is still hard to find—what sense does it make to lower the price? Unlike… Read More

  • Rumor: Halo prequel action/adventure Bungie's next project?


    Oh, joy — I smell a return to Marathon. Or Pathways Into Darkness. Whichever, they’re both pretty awesome games. According to the rumor mill at 1up, Bungie’s next project may be “a third-person action/adventure shooter hybrid that takes place before the original Halo, chronicling early skirmishes between the ODST troops and the Covenant”. Not exactly the plot… Read More

  • Man sued by woman for sending nude pictures messages to phone she bought from him

    Working in retail is hard work, especially in the electronics field, but sometimes your interactions with people on a daily basis lead to new relationships. I worked at a big box retailer for about three years and got many dates out of it, though it wasn’t appropriate at all. The key is, though, to know when it’s OK and when it’s not OK to ask a customer on a date, and how to… Read More

  • Live podcast at 1:00 PM Eastern today

    Join us in about an hour for the CrunchGear and Friends live podcast on BlogTalkRadio.com — we’ll be talking about a whole bunch of stuff from the past week, like Grand Theft Auto IV, new Apple products, and a whole lot more. It’s gonna be a real hoot. You can chat with us during the show via AIM by pinging username “crunchtips” or call into the show at (646)… Read More

  • Inside PsyStar's high-tech facility


    Click To Play PsyStar isn’t on the down-low anymore: they’re shipping PCs running OS X from their posh digs in Florida and even filmed a charming video featuring a full set of cheap PCs running odd OSes including Ubuntu and, obviously, Leopard. The fact that Apple hasn’t hit them yet is quite interesting. I agree with what commentor Cylonite said: Know when the… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: GTA IV pre-order and launch details for the big retails


    Why all the hullabaloo about this game? It’s just a murder simulator, people! but if you must be there to get it the day it comes out, your favorite retailer has probably made an announcement on how and where to go about it. Best Buy has a store list, Wal-Mart’s internal plan was leaked, and just lately GameStop released a 68-page PDF of all stores with midnight openings. Check… Read More
