• 37Signals Drives Another Company To The DeadPool

    Ok, the title is a bit ridiculous. But 37Signals has been urging developers for years now to charge for their software, and attacking anyone who suggests a business can be made from giving that software away for free instead. Their model works for their own products, at least so far. But I believe they are responsible for influencing a number of startups to charge for products that were… Read More

  • iSkype Phone?

    The news is already all over the Web, but in case you missed it German-based SHAPE Services, has just announced Skype for iPhone, an iPhone-optimized WAP site that will let you make Skype calls on your iPhone through the browser. WiFi isn’t required from what we’ve heard either. The service is free for a limited time so try it while you can! [Via GigaOM] Read More

  • Samsung Shows Off New Fuel Cell In Korea

    Samsung displayed its new portable fuel cell power supply in Korea recently. The souped-up battery will apparently let you squeeze a month’s worth of juice out of your laptop. Fuel cells consume a chemical called reactant that must be replenished, unlike traditional batteries that sip stored electrical energy. No word on if or when Samsung’s new baby will be available to the… Read More

  • IRL: World of Whorecraft Chick Gets Banned

    Mia Rose is one hell of a World of Warcraft player. She’s also one hell of a whore. You see, Mia played a horny night elf in a few episodes of World of Whorecraft, which was basically porno styled in the liked of WoW. This past weekend, Mia’s account was suspended because someone posted the link to miarosexxx.com in the game’s chat channels. 10 minutes later, a GM told her… Read More

  • Nokia Pulls Its Head Out, Picks microUSB

    Well, this may not seem like a big deal, but having to pack two or three different cables for your phone can become tedious and annoying. Am I right? It’s obnoxious and I applaud Nokia for doing something so simple and I challenge all others to do the same. It makes life that much easier, folks. All the proprietary cables and other BS deter me from your, otherwise, crappy mobile phones. Read More

  • External Display For Your PS3, Why?

    File this under WTF because I have no idea why anyone would want this. It’s not like the PS3 is the most compact gaming console on the market or anything. The only time I would think of using this 7-inch TFT LCD is when some douchebag is watching the TV and won’t move his fat ass. This is the only acceptable time to use such a thing, right? The display mounts to the top of the… Read More

  • IOGEAR Intros Compact, Feature-Rich KVM Switch

    Having a two computer setup can be nice, but all those cords can become a problem quickly. Ease the tension by picking up IOGEAR’s new MiniView Micro PS/2 KVM switch. It allows for two computers to share an LCD with DVI output and a max resolution of 1600×1200, as well as USB or PS/2 keyboards and mice. The MiniView also has an audio switch so you can listen to tunes from one PC… Read More

  • Zink's Integrated Digital Camera, Printer Coming Soon?

    Zink’s camera and printer convergence device is inching its way closer to launch, at least we think it is. It remains to be seen whether or not this will be worth the wait and cost, but a few more details have emerged and it’s raising our brows. How good will the 7-megapixel sensor be and does anyone really want 2-x3-inch prints? The 2-inch display and rechargeable battery… Read More

  • Wi-Fi Detective: In Case You've Been Living Under A Rock

    If for some reason your PC or laptop doesn’t come equipped with a wireless card then the Wi-Fi Detective is what you’ve been looking for. Maybe your parents or grandparents have an old ass computer that needs to get on the Net then look no further. The Wi-Fi Detective instantly picks up SSID, signal strength, network type (b/g), network mode (infrastructure or adhoc), operating… Read More

  • Verizon Wireless Retools Mobile Web 2.0

    The largest United States wireless provider has just made Mobile Web 2.0 easier to use. An improved interface makes it easier for customers to access the news and e-mails that keep people on the go up-to-date. History is for dusty library shelves, not today’s shakers and movers. Content providers ESPN, Bank of America, USA TODAY, and MapQuest are all still available, but it is much… Read More

  • Original Star Wars Cockpit Arcade Machine For Sale

    I’m pretty certain this was the first arcade machine I ever fed my hard earned quarters. Who doesn’t remember the Star Wars Cockpit machine?! I’ve been lusting over Golden Tee for years and came very close to purchasing one in college, but I had reached the limit on my CC and rather than applying for a new one I went back to drinking and playing Tetris. This, however, is… Read More

  • Magnum Chrome DS Casing Makes Fiddy Smile

    Check it aspiring rappers/blacksmiths. Though not officially from Nintendo, a full chrome DS casing set is now available from SHOCK! via ConsoleShop.com. It’s supposed to be easy-to-install, very durable, and looks hella cool to boot. You’ll have to replace the case and buttons, but it shouldn’t be harder than trying to replace an iPhone battery. Get it now for $39.95 or pay… Read More

  • Rite In The Rain Notebooks

    Hey hey hey! Before the computer, people used things called pencils and notebooks. Problem is with notebooks, just like their computer counterparts, when you leave them in the rain, they get soaked and destroyed. Not fun. Lucky for us, we have Rite in the Rain notebooks! They’re inexpensive, costing only $2 to $4 depending on size and are covered in Polydura, a waterproof substance. So… Read More

  • This Is Iron Man's Armor? WTF!


    The Iron Giant I know, I know. This has nothing to do with gadgets or gear, but I know many of you have an interest in the upcoming Iron Man movie. Well, I guess it does have to do with gadgets. Tony Stark’s Iron Man armor is constantly evolving and kicking more ass with every mod, so what was revealed at Comic-Con is baffling. It looks more like the The Iron Giant doesn’t it? Read More

  • US Nokia N95 In The Wild

    Symbian-Guru.com got their paws on a brand new Nokia N95 US edition phone. Plenty of pics are available, so if you’re dying to see what it’ll be like to have improved battery life, more RAM, and a sweet black paint job, then you’re in business. Not gonna lie though, it just looks like any other N95 for the most part. Sure, there are a few minor differences, but do you really… Read More

  • Buy.com Will Go Out Of Business Because Of This

    As Deleon and I waited for Entourage to come on last night, this commercial for Buy.com popped on during some channel surfing. There were five of us in the room and for a total of 30-seconds, we all sat without saying a word watching the worst commercial for a website we’ve ever seen. Buy.com, because of this commercial, you will go out of business. There is simply no way anyone can take… Read More

  • Have An iPod Shuffle? Check Out iSlimCharger

    A company named Monster, who I believe bears no relation to Monster Cable, has just released a cool little accessory for 2G iPod Shuffles called iSlimCharger. It plugs into the docking port on the bottom of the iPod and then has a USB connector to plug the entire set into a PC for charging. Simple, yet a lifesaver when you’re on the go and don’t feel like dragging an iPod dock along. Read More

  • LG Trax Now Officially Available On AT&T

    Pha already gave you a hands on with the Trax, but for the rest of us, the phone is officially out in AT&T stores for you to play around with. Some of the features that make the Trax worthwhile include touch-sensative music controls, media playback for MP3, AAC, and WMA files, HSDPA for fast-as-hell ‘net access, and 1.3-megapixel snapper. Where the Trax really shines though is… Read More
