  • Some Company We've Never Heard Of Sues Apple Over iPhone Patent

    Maybe you’d like to know—or maybe you woudln’t?—that some no-name company is suing our Apple, claiming that the touch screen in its iPhone infringes upon one of its patents. The company, SP Technologies, which is the successor to Conglom-O, says that Apple “has infringed, and is now infringing” (ooh, how official sounding) on its patent for “method… Read More

  • The Pocket Idiot's Guide To The iPhone

    The Idiot’s Guide To series of books are a sure-fire way to become knowledgeable on just about any subject. It breaks everything down, so even grandma knows what’s going on.

  • Event Tickets Are Big Business: European Startup Invades U.S.

    London-based Viagogo, an online marketplace for event tickets, is invading the U.S. market. It’s a European version of StubHub, which sold to eBay for $307 million back in January. The site was founded by Eric Baker, one of StubHub’s founders, and launched in 2005 after a falling out with the company. Baker is now returning to the US market to take on StubHub, with a fresh $30… Read More

  • Clear Harmony Noise Canceling Headphones Review

    Making a set of noise-canceling headphones that sound good and cancel noise well is no easy task. Able Planet’s Clear Harmony kills plenty of racket and pumps out some sweet-sounding audio, which is why it mystifies me that they’d do a less-than-stellar job on the fit and comfort, especially when they’re playing in Bose’s $350 sandbox. Still, these are worth a listen… Read More

  • Lenovo Has Linux On The Brain, Will Release Laptops With The OS This Year

    Lenovo will release laptops that have Linux instead of Windows later this year. I know, I know, this means the end of Microsoft as we know it… hellfire, dark clouds… Reuters, can’t be bothered to explain why Lenovo is making the switch, but it does go into great detail, in true reverse pyramid style, explaining how Dell announced a few months ago that it too was making the… Read More

  • Nostalgia Overload: Singing, Talking Robotic Elvis

    Elvis may have permanently left the building, but he never left some people’s hearts. If you’re one of those people, $300 will get you a creepy animatronic Elvis that “comes to life — checking you out and talking you up.” The King also sings eight of his classics and, if the mood hits you, you can sing along using the glittering microphone/remote control that… Read More

    Nick over at ShackNews recently got back from Blizzcon and took some awesome shots of StarCraft II that are sure to please.

  • Facebook Embarrassment For Rudy Giuliani

    Another social networking embarrassment for a presidential candidate: Rudy Giuliani’s 17-year-old daughter Caroline supports Barack Obama for president over her father. Until this morning she was a member of the One Million Strong For Obama Facebook group, and lists her political views as “liberal.” Caroline removed herself from the group after Slate emailed her about it, but… Read More

    The ATC2K from Oregon Scientific is a great, low cost, mountable video camera for the daredevil out there. The waterproof video camera has 32MB of internal memory with an SD card slot supporting up to 2GB. The ATC2K works with a wide variety of video editing software, so I wouldn’t sweat over that detail. It virtually mounts to anything you can think of with its included hardware and… Read More

  • Next-Gen iMac Photos Surface


    Ooooh! Oooooh! Oooooooooh! Those shifty dudes over at Gizmodo got some pictures of the new iMac e-mailed to them this morning. Of course, the photos are blurry and low-rez, so they’re most likely fake. If this is the new iMac though, it looks pretty sweet. You be the judge. Hit the jump for a picture of the back

  • Apple Releases iPhone Tool

    I’m sick of everything iPhone-related, but this was way too funny to pass up. I wasn’t aware that Apple had released an official iPhone tool until I came across this gem on eBay and later on Flickr. This tool is only issued to Apple Support, but now you can own your very own, so you won’t have to suffer from seperation anxiety while your precious is being serviced. The… Read More

  • Buffalo DriveStation, MiniStation Now 30-60 Percent Faster Than Pretenders

    By all accounts, faster is better than slower, and bigger is better than smaller… so long as we’re talking about hard drives. Buffalo’s MiniStation and DriveStation hard drives will now most certainly be faster, about 30-60 percent faster than other such drives. Buffalo sped up the hard drives’ speed by using Turbo USB, a proprietary feature at controller level. (All… Read More

  • Nokia Signs On To Use Microsoft DRM

    You know what, I’m glad you got an iPhone. Although it’s been over-hyped and talked about for months, at least it doesn’t use Microsoft’s shitty PlayReady DRM. Nokia made the stupid move of signing on with Microsoft to use the DRM on its phones using the S40 and S60 interfaces. Nokia phones tend to be pretty feature-rich, especially in the media department. Introduce… Read More
