• Verizon Wireless (Casio) G’zOne Type-S Review


    Will it blend?
    We’ve all dropped our phones once, twice, or every other five minutes, right? I know I have on multiple occasions and I wince with every drop. The battery or some part seems to dislodge itself without fail every time and it just doesn’t work the same afterwards. I’ve gotten away with sending my phone in for replacement without the watermark stickers revealing… Read More

  • Motorola Throwing Up Cryptic Posters Around NYC


    GEE, WHAT COULD IT POSSIBLY MEAN? Nicholas and I were on our way to some bar/event yesterday when we noticed this poster conveniently plastered next to a Paul van Dyk flyer. Seems Motorola is really gearing up for a big promotion involving something with the number 2. Oh my! Because we’re not retarded, we concluded it was related to the RAZR 2 and wandered off to get drunk. Hours later… Read More

  • Helio Fin Quick Look

    A quick look at the Helio Fin. It’s really hot in the basement so I’m fairly non-plussed in the video, but the phone is very cool. It’s very slim and has all of the messaging features of the Ocean in a much more compact package. Read More

  • Kodak's Picture Kiosk G4 More Fun Than It Should Be

    Until yesterday, I hadn’t used a photo kiosk since the year 2000. At that time all the kiosk had was a flatbed scanner and maybe a floppy and/or CD-ROM, but I don’t remember (dude, it was seven years ago. Back off!). I was given the opportunity to test out the newest kiosk from Kodak yesterday—the Kodak Picture Kiosk G4—and while most of the things it does I can do at… Read More

  • Rumor Confirmed: Adidas, Samsung Mobile Phone Is Coming

    Well, the rumors about an Adidas, Samsung mobile phone can be laid to rest. The phone is definitely in the works according to a trusted source.

The details we gave you earlier… Read More

    “But enough talk, have at you!” I don’t do comics that much anymore and I rarely have time for video games.

    The reviews are starting to trickle in and the general consensus seems to be that the highly-anticipated BioShock is a smash hit.

  • Guitar Hero Makes Kids Go to Eleven


    Farhad at Salon’s Machinis wrote a great piece on the effect of Guitar Hero on the popularity of guitar music. In my humble opinion, playing Hero has as much to do with playing the guitar as pounding on a bucket has to do with playing the xylophone, but Farhad points out that … “Guitar Hero” instills two important guitar-playing fundamentals: sensitivity to rhythm as… Read More

    Months after EA and Jobs made love on the WWDC stage, consumers have yet to see any of the games that EA promised. Titles like Madden ’08 and Battlefield 2142 are supposed to be coming to OS X, but have yet to surface. Now things are getting fishy. Apparently EA is not commenting on OS X-related games and Apple is directing all calls and inquiries to EA. In all reality, EA is probably… Read More
