  • Aerogel: Glass that is 99.8% air gets put through the paces

    The world’s lightest known solid, Aerogel, weighs only three times as much as air. As air, mind you. You could practically breathe the stuff, but you wouldn’t want to because, basically it’s glass. Really, really, fluffy glass. It has been used by NASA as insulation for the Mars Pathfinder Rover. Not only is it a great insulator, but it is also made from silicon dioxide, so… Read More

  • Muxtape reborn, unofficially, as OpenTape

    The RIAA shut down Muxtape but that doesn’t mean its memory won’t linger on the hearts of those who must share their love of the Hold Steady with the world. Enter OpenTape, an open source package that essentially recreates the Muxtape experience on a personal level. You simply download the application, unpack it on your web server, and then upload songs. It took me about two minutes… Read More

  • Games Convention heading to North America?

    GC had a stellar showing at Leipzig this year with a record number of visitors and countries reporting. Their next stop is Singapore for round 2 of GC Asia and CEO Wolfgang is looking at North America to continue the expansion of GC. But, will GC invade the United States of America in 2009 even though E3 is slated for another run? I hope so. Or maybe they’ll pick Canada. Read More

  • Psystar files a countersuit against Apple

    Psystar is suing Apple under the Sherman Antitrust Act saying that the EULA is a form of illicit tying and restrains trade. Psystar’s attorneys are calling Apple’s allegations of Psystar’s copyright infringement “misinformed and mischaracterized.” Psystar argues that its OpenComputer product is shipped with a fully licensed, unmodified copy of Mac OS X, and that… Read More

  • Ultra-thin OLEDs on the way


    It seems that one of the limiting factors in miniaturizing OLED screens is the substrate. This isn’t surprising, considering the OLEDs themselves are microscopically thin, but I’m kind of surprised they haven’t moved on from glass substrates already since the benefits are so manifest. I guess cost must have been an issue, or else maybe there just was never a friendship like… Read More

  • Rumor: Next PS3 update to include screen grab functionality

    Break out the salt shaker, PS3 fanboys, because this one’s for you. CVG was supposedly tipped off by a “development source” that the next round of PS3 updates, specifically 2.5, will include the ability to capture screen grabs. No other details were mentioned. Read More

  • Movie Labels To Launch New "Open Market" Play Anywhere Scheme As Last Ditch Effort To Save DRM

    Most of the big movie studios and many online movie retailers are preparing to to launch a new initiative tentatively called Open Market, first proposed last year by Sony Pictures, we’ve learned. All of the major studios besides those associated with Walt Disney are already on board and will be part of the announcements made next month. Read More

  • NZXT's Whisper case: sweet, quiet, and cool full tower


    And I was just beginning to tire of my little mid tower, how convenient. This Whisper case from NZXT is right up my alley. I don’t need portability, or fancy acrylic siding, but what I do need is lots of space and quiet running. And with foam padding all over the inside of this mother and room for nine hard drives in there, I think I should be safe. Hopefully I’ll be able to tell… Read More

  • Review: Aussie Soles

    In our long tradition of receiving strangely inapplicable pitches that somehow just work we present the Aussie Soles. These are not Crocs, although, ummm, I’d be concerned about patent infringement – after all they’re calling their snuggly boot line SnUggs. That said, I’m wearing the Aussie Soles Marines right now and, as Peter points out, as if there weren’t… Read More

  • Android: More info on the G1

    The fun doesn’t stop, folks. The same chaps who brought us "official" images of the G1 this morning have revealed a mighty fine list of specs for the T-Mo Android handset. I think I’m most excited for the built-in compass in Google Streetview. Rock. On. First off, that “chin” that’s got everyone talking is allegedly called a “kicktail” and… Read More

  • CrunchDeal: Amazon puts more Blu-ray discs on sale

    Ah, the end of the of the (physical) format wars. Now you can purchase away without fear of your movies quickly fading into obsolescence. Amazon is running a 45% off sale, (except for a few stragglers at 43%) on eight selected Warner Home Video titles. And no, they’re not all crap. That is unless you consider GoodFellas to be crap. And if that’s the case… go away. Amazon.com… Read More

    Today HP announced the closing of a $13.9 billion acquisition of Electronic Data Systems Corp, ending the process that officially began in May. Under the terms of the deal HP payed $25 per share in cash, and will set up a new business group titled EDS, an HP company. HP hopes the purchase will better enable them to grapple with market leader IBM, who currently owns over double HP’s… Read More

  • Using corroded metal to find fingerprints

    Researchers have figured out a way to identify fingerprints left on metals even after they have been wiped clean. By applying a fine conducting powder to a gun or bullet casing, the fingerprint reveals itself after an electric charge is applied. Dr. John Bond, a forensic research scientist at the University of Leicester, developed the technique and is now looking into the possibility of it… Read More

    projectordesign’s been around the custom install market for a while now and their latest units should maintain top of the line appeal. The entire new lineup features Philips UHP VIDI lamp tech, along with projectordesign’s RealColor image management. All five projectors are going to be available by the end of the year but the company hasn’t announced any pricing yet. Hopefully… Read More

  • Spore: Galactic Edition unboxed

    Whoo! With just about 2 weeks left before we’ll all be roaming the Spore universe as questionably shaped creatures of our own design, I’m finally letting myself get excited about this game. While we’ve known what Spore: Galactic Edition would include for some time now (Game/Art DVDs, 128 pg Art of Spore book, 100 pg manual, and a poster), no one has really seen much of the… Read More

  • Review: Naneu K4L

    Naneu makes high quality camera bags that double as backpacks. We reviewed the K3 last year and found one minor problem but the K4L has addressed the issue and I believe it’s one of the best camera/laptop bags I’ve used.
