• Sony Gachapin(??) SE MP3 Player

    I completely forgot Sony was still in the MP3 market! What with all the iPod, Zune, Sansa and Zen marketing blitzes going on all around Sony keeps chuggin’ away nice and quiet. I’m not sure what or who Gachapin is but I think it’s some sort of buck toothed caterpillar. Maybe? The special edition lime green E series walkman comes in 512MB and 1GB flavors. It also comes with a… Read More

    Canova Dual-Touchscreen Laptop Thing

    I tend to find touchscreens problematic. They never seem to function as I want them to, tracking clumsily and seldom failing to piss me off. Nevertheless, my professed feelings on the technology, it is undeniable that this dual-touchscreen laptop from Canova is incredibly sexy. It’s apparently available only in Australia and Italy and, despite my efforts, I’ve been unable to dig up… Read More

  • Zox DVD Player Has An Identity Crisis

    Just about every gadget out there has a plethora of accessories that let you change the appearance so you don’t get bored with them. Skins for Sidekicks, all sorts of cases and widgets for cell phones, modded cases for gaming consoles and yet the standard fixtures in our homes don’t have any sort of market or makers to spice up the entertainment center. This is where Zox from Japan… Read More

  • Jim Allchin Retires, Checks Email, Leads Masses to Vista

    , retired on January 30 and is now posting in his dotage as he putters around the house playing guitar and looking at cereal. After 17 years of hard-core programming, it’s kind of silly to see this guy posting to his Vista blog in a manner not befitting the guy that ordered a bunch of pale programmers to make an Aero “Glass” interface, but it’s nice that Bill didn’t… Read More

    Source: Microsoft Zune Phone In the Works

  • Ultra Chill-TEC Keeps CPU Cool So You Don't Have To

    CPU cooling is all thermo electrics these days. Ultra Products joins the fray of Peltier-effect processor coolers with the $149 Ultra Chill-TEC. For the unfamiliar, the cooler uses a solid-state active heat pump that takes heat from one side of the device to the other. A fan, heat pipes and copper plates then quietly get rid of the heat. The best part is that it can help cool down an overclocked… Read More

    Sprint Offers Unlimited Texting to Power Pack Customers

    It’s no secret to us techies that text messaging is popular. I personally send far more texts than phone calls. It is a far quicker and less obtrusive method of communication. The problem is that none of the providers offer unlimited texting packages. Until now. Sprint Power Pack subscribers now have the option to add unlimited texting to their plan for $10 per month. If you’re on a… Read More

  • The War Is Over: Blu-ray Outselling HD DVD

    The War Is Over: Blu-ray Outselling HD DVD

    I’m a man of some intelligence and I certainly know when a silly electronics war is over. So when I read up on these stats regarding Blu-ray and HD DVD sales, I knew the format war was won. As an avid fan of the color blue for the past 15 years, I had a hunch Blu-ray was going to win hands down. I mean, HD DVD doesn’t even have a color in it’s name. How are you supposed to… Read More

  • Zune Phone Coming Soon?

    Zune Phone Coming Soon?

    CrunchGear has some exclusive info on a Zune-enabled phone coming from Microsoft later this year. Hot on the heels of Vista, we can’t be sure if this is a software addition to their current mobile line up or an actual device, but now that they’re in the race with the Zune itself, it makes sense they’ll try to beat the iPhone at its own game. More details to come but check out… Read More

    Fujitsu's Thin, Waterproof F703i

    The Origami Remote Control

    When I was a kid, chicks were always making those little paper “fortune tellers” where you picked a few numbers then got told you had herpes. Now the same principle is being applied to TV remotes, or at least this one. You use the paper fortune teller to control things like changing channels or adjusting the volume. According to creator Hayeon Yoo, the remote is aimed at children to… Read More

    The Futurist: Your Friendar is Broken… or How MVNOs Can Succeed

    It’s nigh impossible to open a magazine these days without finding a four-page ad spread telling you that Helio is not just a phone. Nope, its a “Friendar” too! And, even better, it gives you instant access to MySpace! Wow! These ads are the product of one of the largest technology marketing campaigns in recent memory. Unfortunately, they are nearly assuring that Helio will be a… Read More

    Windows Mobile Device Center: Suck on This, ActiveSync

    Well this is a fine kettle of fish. Windows has just launched beta versions of their 32- and 64-bit syncing software, Windows Mobile Device Center, or NAMBLA. The software is obviously prettier than ActiveSync and it includes all the regular sync junk along with media sync, on device file-browsing, and improved set-up and recognition. I never thought I’d say this, but Windows is looking… Read More
