    Life Without Google

    James Thomas decided he didn’t like what Google was doing to him — keeping track of his browsing habits, controlling his documents, threatening his family, peeing in his alley — so he decided to dump the company completely.

    Odd iPod Patent Shows Dual Screens, Rear Touchscreen

    The Interweb is all a’flutter about an odd iPod patent filed by Apple that describes a device with screens on both the front and the back of the player. An amalgam of Sprint’s UpStage and the iPhone, this patent describes an interface in which a rear touchscreen accepts input and reflects that input on the front screen. Confused yet? It works like this. Because a Nano-sized… Read More

    Delphi SkyFi3 XM Review

    Give a little get a little” is an appropriate description of the SkyFi3. Seems to me that Delphi’s initial thought was to provide XM in the car, and then they expanded that role. Similar to Pioneer’s Inno and Samsung’s Helix, the SkyFi3 performs many of the same functions as these more expensive units. XM satellite radio is robust in its line-up with over 170 channels… Read More

    Google Earth Might Offer Sounds of Locations Around the World

    Google Earth is pretty cool as it is, letting users traverse the globe and see all sorts of landmarks and the like. What would make it better, though, would be to hear the sounds of the area you’re looking at. One company, Wild Sanctuary, has more than 3,500 hours of ambient sounds from all over God’s Green Earth. Collecting all those sound clips took 40 years and now the company… Read More

    Halo 2 Hits The 5 Million Mark

    You know your game is a smash hit when millions of people purchase your game, but what about when millions of people go out of their way to play that game online?

    Pacemaker Pocket DJ Better Be Real 'Cause I Needs to Mix

    Dear Space Jesus, please tell us this Pacemaker pocket DJ is real. Who could resist a 120GB hard drive and the ability to mix and crossfade all the ATB and AVB you can stomach? (For Vince and I that’s quite a bit. In fact, we’ll be raving to ATB next week. Come join us.) Battery life is only so-so, though, lasting only five hours while mixing, barely enough to put together an… Read More

    Fabricate Tasty Objects Out Of Sugar

    Evil Mad Scientist may have a scary name, but his creations are simply delicious. This genius whipped up a 3-D fabricator that can create objects out of granulated sugar. These tasty treats can then be used for impressing little children with a taste for sweets. As long as you can design something in AutoCAD (I’m assuming here), you can have it printed out in the tastiest form known to man. Read More
