    Helio Officially Lands In NYC

    It’s finally here! After months of waiting, the NYC Helio Flagship store officially opened its doors for business. I took a quick peek around and it’s definitely not 100 percent done, so consider this a ‘soft launch’. That’s not to say there are paint buckets and scaffolding strewn about the store. Some of the art work is missing and a few other things here and… Read More

    iPod Controls On Your Lady Lumps

    I’m really thirsty and I’m not sure why. Anyways, these fine young ladies are sporting the hottest new trend for the Summer: iPod controls on a bikini.

I can’t help that your boob is right there.” Sure, pal. Read More

Subvert and Profit, like User/Submitter and Spike the Vote, pays users for digging stories in the hope that they’ll make the front page. For the service, they charge… Read More

    Microsoft Reclusa Quick Look

    The iPhone Tour: I Give Up

    Please don’t hate us, Mike. See, reader Mike emailed me asking us to stop talking about the iPhone. But we can’t. We really can’t. It’s taken over the entire news cycle. Everyone is afraid of the iPhone and they won’t launch anything to compete for it. Imagine releasing, I don’t know, a fairly cool sci-fi movie the same week Star Wars 7: Attack of George… Read More

    HD DVD Backers Says "So What" To Blockbuster's Support of Blu-ray

    Universal Studios, which exclusively supports HD DVD, basically thumbed its nose at Blockbuster in its response to the rental chain’s decision to favor Blu-ray. A marketing manager for Universal said that rental income from places like Blockbuster only brings in less than one percent of its revenue. No big loss, in other words. So much for the predictions of it being the end of the world… Read More

    For those dreaded weekday mornings is this mat alarm clock. It employs a similar tactic as Clocky: in order to shut it off, you need to get out of bed.
