    Fujitsu's New Super Skinny Waterproof Cell

    It’s the same story every time. You’re at a pool party in The Hamptons and you go to push some unsuspecting socialite into the pool only to hear, “No! I’ve got my cellphone in my pocket!” Pocketable electronics have done nothing but turn every person who hangs out poolside into Chief Nofun of the Idonwanna Tribe. Well if Fujitsu gets its way, that’s all about… Read More

    CrunchRumor: 6G iPod to Join iPhone, Apple TV in Featuring YouTube Content?

    There is this lake, this salty lake, in Utah. We’re going to mine much of the formerly precious mineral to give you with this rumor, but it comes from a reliable and in-the-know friend of ours in the Apple chain of command, so we’re giving it the benefit of the doubt. We’ve heard rumors that were reiterated regarding new iPods next month. The rumors say these 6G iPods would… Read More

    The video game industry executive shake-up continues. Less than a week after E3 Peter Moore has resigned from Microsoft to return to Northern California. The former Sega head honcho has cited personal reasons and has “secured another opportunity in the video games industry.” Could this be a return to Sega, or possibly a move to Nintendo? Both scenarios seem unlikely, but… Read More

    New iMacs in August, Maybe New iLife Too?

    ThinkSecret.com is reporting that, according to “reliable sources”, the new iMac should hit shelves on August 7th and will be ensconced in a brushed aluminum enclosure. The site is also toying with the idea that the new iLife suite might be released early to coincide with the new iMacs’ debut.

  • Kaiser Rolls to AT&T?

    Kaiser Rolls to AT&T?

    Speaking of Germans and cellphones, today we learn that the HTC Kaiser is indeed coming to the US-and-A, courtesy of AT&T. Why the carrier is hogging all the high-end phones is anyone’s guess; we see them diluting their upper market with iPhone competitors as they try to cover every base, but whatevs. The QWERTY-sliding Windows Mobile 6 smarty should hit sometime next month, which… Read More

    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 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

    Are your friends avoiding you? Are they really getting together without you?

    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

    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
