• Rumor: MacBook Thin Specs Confirmed?

    , including the 1280×800 pixel resolution of the 12-inch widescreen display, the standard 1GB or RAM (expandable to 3), and 2.16 or 2.33GHz Core 2 Duo procs, among others. While we don’t think it does exist, we do concede it would kick much ass. Sadly, this would be Apple shooting itself in its foot, as the MacBook Thin would cannibilize its own MacBook sales.

  • Del.icio.us Widget Released

    News from Del.icio.us has been slow the last year – a couple of controversies and some solid overall growth. It’s an example of something the Internet really needed, but it’s also a bit of a one-trick pony. You bookmark stuff, tag it, and share it. Good data comes out of aggregrated user generated data. That’s pretty much the end of the story. I love Del.icio.us, but there… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 3

    Ah Wednesday, Reader Response Festivus Week moves on bringing us one day closer to Friday; one day closer to that Nikon D40. It also means that today is the first day we’re giving away a SanDisk Cruzer Titanium. I’ve been using a Titanium flash drive for a bunch of months now and I heart it. U3 enabled drives kick major ass. Especially if you use a lot of public terminals. You can boot… Read More

  • Tiny Desk Heater For The Inherently Frigid

    This litte heater isn’t a new, new product, but I wanted to mention it because it totally kicks ass. I’m not big on Sharper Image’s products for the most part, ’cause they always seem a bit cheesy and shoddy. However, my hands get pretty cold, to the point where typing is a chore due to my stiff fingers. Sharper Image calls it the World’s Smallest Big Heater and while… Read More

Obviously forcing cash-strapped American moms to pony up tens of thousands of… Read More

    Spion Orbitor Electronic Listening Device for the Devious

When I was a kid my uncle gave me one of these things and I used to terrorize the neighborhood with it. Long… Read More
