  • Apple starts MobileMe blog, posts anonymous status update

    Since MobileMe’s launch, Apple’s felt the heat over each and every item on the laundry list of nasty issues. They launched a product that simply wasn’t ready, and have been e-lambasted for it.

  • Awesome: Floppy disk album packaging


    A NY band called Science Vs. Witchcraft is releasing an EP soon, and in honor of (I’m sure) their nerdy roots, they’ve designed the packaging with a sweet 80’s diskette vibe. The CD itself is inside a 5.25″ diskette case and when you put it in your computer’s drive, it’ll pop up with a little text-based adventure game. Looks like someone did this before… Read More

  • Telescopic pixels project a brighter, more efficient future

    The common LCD screen is highly inefficient. Less than 10% of the light from the backlit screen actually works its way through the various layers, with the polarizing layer alone absorbing half. Now, using optics more akin to something found in a telescope, researchers have discovered a way to reduce the wasted energy. Anna Pyayt, from the University of Washington, along with two Microsoft… Read More

  • Both AMD and NVIDIA's stocks are falling like rocks – buy!


    Pretty soon both of these suckers are going to bottom out, and since there’s really no other players in the consumer video card game, at least one of them is going to bounce back. NVIDIA is at around $11, down from almost $25 a couple months ago, and AMD has been steadily declining for a long time and is on its way to becoming a penny stock. Have a little extra cash? There’s… Read More

  • If you think the Meridian F80 was overpriced take a look at their new iPod dock

    A few months ago, we told you about the $3,000+ radio from Meridian named the F80. One of the features the F80 was missing was an iPod dock. Well, they are going to fix that problem this August with a $400 iPod dock named the i80. Most audiophiles snub the iPod since it plays compressed audio, but Meridian says they can fix that.
