    myCharger Powers Your iPhone, iPod and Other Mobile Phones

    Traveling tech geeks will understand the anguish I go through when I travel with all my gadgets. It’s bad enough that I travel around with three phones, a laptop, an iPod and digital camera, but add the chargers for all that and it ends up being a complete clusterf*ck and the few extra pounds make a big difference. The Tekkeon myCharger might not reduce the weight and clutter altogether… Read More

    Allofmp3.com Is No More


    Collapsing under pressure from the US and the possibility of scraping any chance that Russia has to join the WTO, music download site Allofmp3.com has closed up shop. Customers were greeted with your typical “site is down for maintenance” message, but a former employee has spilled the beans and confirmed its closure. The ‘nail in the coffin’ came from Visa and… Read More

    Here are a few comments that made us LOL. We’ve got another CrunchDunce winner too. Remember folks, typing out an entire comment in CAPS does not make you any louder or smarter. You know who you are… It’s been three days since iDay and the iPhone hoopla is still bringing in comments. Jason Green gave us a taste of what he thought about all this craziness, and that put him… Read More

    AllofMP3 Goes Down In Midst of Much Bigger WTO Scuffle

    It looks like the RIAA and big music labels have won a battle, if not the war, against massively popular AllOfMP3, a Russian music download site that sells MP3s for as little as two cents per megabyte. The site has been shut down, again, reportedly at the hands of the Russian government. Russia agreed to force the site to shut down last year, in response to pressure by the U.S. government and… Read More

    iPhone Costs Apple $220 To Manufacture

    If you’re still in shock over the prices you actually paid for your iPhone then you should steer clear of this story. It could send you to the emergency room. Teardown firm, Portelligent, estimates that the cost of materials for the 4GB model is $200 and $220 for the 8GB model. These estimates don’t include the final build, but Apple has historically seen gross margins of 50… Read More

    Korean Navy Endorses Starcraft Team

    This only happens in Korea, I swear. My countrymen love them some Starcraft and the mandatory military service hinders that love, but no longer. In April the Air Force profiled the King of the Terran Tribe in Starcraft, Im Yo-han. The profile caused the site to crash from all the hits and the Navy is hoping they can have the same success with the announcement of team Aegis. The formation of… Read More

    The tree-huggers at Greenpeace published their list of best and worst companies for the environment (specifically as it releates to harmful chemicals) last week and Nokia came out on top. Citing its policy of “eliminating the worst chemicals from many products,” Greenpeace gave the Finland-based cellphone an eight out of 10. Greenpeace rated Sony the worst, claiming that it has… Read More

    HD DVD Not Dead, Not Even Close Says Toshiba

    HD DVD ain’t dead yet, no matter what Peter and his interviewees say. Toshiba had a press dealie Thursday that essentially pimped its HD DVD players and Regza HDTVs. (To be honest, I don’t give a damn who wins the high-def optical disc wars, so I’ll happily play each camp against each other until Hell freezes over.) I will say that the ability to upgrade its players’… Read More

    Zelda: Ocarina of Time Named "Best Game of All Time" By Edge Magazine

    Edge magazine has named The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time the best game of all time. Yes, everyone hates these so-called “best” lists and many of them are created just as Digg bait nowadays, but Edge magazine, in my opinion, isn’t your typical video game magazine. It doesn’t use words like “awesome” or “super-de-dooper” to describe and… Read More
