  • Mac OS X Tiger: Top 12 Security Issues

    “Hi, my name is Peter Ha and I’m a Windows user.” That’s what I used to say at my Windows Anonymous meetings, but now I can proudly say that I’m a Mac user. I made the switch last summer after I moved to NYC and left my PC desktop back on the West Coast. The transition was pretty smooth, but I still have a long ways to go in regards to all the tips and shortcuts. Read More

  • Linksys Wireless Adapter/Finder: It's a Candy Mint And a Breath Mint

    Know what sucks? When you have a really cool idea, like, something that you invent in your head, you get really excited about it, as it’s totally something that fulfills a need. You come up with a product, say a combination of two things into one, and realize you could make a million dollars on it, only to discover that someone else has beaten you to market. This is how I felt when I… Read More

  • Million Dollar Laptop: Notebook for the Super-Idiot Super-Rich

    Dear Millionaires, When I came across the Million Dollar Laptop, I was astounded by the idea that anyone would pay one million dollars for something like this. As near as we can tell, it’s a fairly standard high-end laptop with a slick-looking docking station. Don’t get me wrong, it looks really, really cool, check the video after the jump for a demonstration. I wouldn’t… Read More

  • Best Buy And Apple Cut A Deal

    Best Buy And Apple Cut A Deal

    Truth be told, the last company I expected to strike a deal with Apple was Best Buy. But who am I to judge? In a statement today, Best Buy said that next Tuesday, all 822 stores will have the Apple TV available for purchase. This positions Best Buy to gain some increased sales considering that it’ll be another two weeks before other stores start selling Apple TV units. If you want… Read More

  • Shooting the Messenger (If the Message is "Wake Up, Jerk"); or, the Glock Clock

    We’ve seen more than our share of interesting alarm clocks on the pages of CrunchGear over the months, and there are in fact many that we don’t cover. There are just too damned many. But sometimes we come across clocks with totally unique ways to make us wake up, and we take notice. And if they’re cool enough, we share them here with you. One such clock is the Gun-Operated… Read More

  • Gumiyo.com Adds Anonymized Phone Numbers to Classified Listings

    Without a doubt, the most popular classified ads site on the Internet is Craigslist. The simple, utilitarian site is a shining example of how the p2p Web can work, and one of the secrets to its success is the anonymization of its users by email forwarding and masking. Many people who wouldn’t want their real email addresses published can use an anonymous, temporary @cragislist.org address… Read More

  • Apple TV and the Competitors You Could Have Already Been Using


    I swear sometimes it’s like you people aren’t paying attention. Did you not know that digital media adapters or network media devices have already existed for some time? Could you not wrap your minds around attaching a laptop or desktop to your TV to view Internet content? All of a sudden ’cause Mr. Jobs says it’s OK for you to stream stuff to your TV, you drool and… Read More

  • Motorola RIZR Z3 Hands On Redux

    Motorola RIZR Z3 Hands On Redux

    T-Mobile sent me the RIZR in a plain envelope with no note or box. I slid it out and half-expected Morpheus to call me and warn me of impending Agent encroachment. No such luck. What I did find out, however, is that Motorola still hasn’t lost its mojo and can still pump out a cool phone. Read More

    One winner is down and the contest chugs on. We still have two Crumpler bags to give away in our Geek Travel Reader Response contest.

Anyway, if this is the first you’re reading of our Geek… Read More

  • Ron Jeremy: Porn Star, Potential Philatelist, Tech Reviewer

    http://www.heavy.com/ve/flvplayer The King of Porn and Surreal Life star, Ron Jeremy, is joining the ranks of bloggerdom. The “hairy, chunky, aging porn star” will have his own show on Heavy.com called Techsmart with Ron Jeremy. Who knows what sort of tech stuff he’ll be reviewing, but it’s gonna be hot and funny. I’m sure he’ll have some of his lady… Read More

  • CD Sales Down 20% From 2006

    CD Sales Down 20% From 2006

    The future of the CD is not looking good. Last year, 112 million CDs were sold between January 1st and March 18th. This year? A paltry 89 million. Don’t get me wrong. 89 million CDs in three months is still an lot of discs sold. But a 20-percent drop in sales? That says something. The music industry is blaming lackluster sales on the growing demand for digital downloads. I’ll… Read More

  • Guy Goes Off On T-Mobile Dash

    A while back I received a T-Mobile/HTC Dash to play with and truth be told, it wasn’t too exciting. Windows Mobile is just a crappy OS and until it’s redone completely or undergoes a major overhaul, I really don’t plan on using it…or an HTC phone I suppose. Anyways, this 9-minute long video stars The fat Phat Guy going off on a rant about the Dash. Surprisingly though… Read More

  • CG Surfer Edition: Reef Sandals Stash Your Booze And Bills

    If there’s one thing I miss more than surfing everyday back home in sunny California, it’s wearing flip-flops. I really hate wearing shoes. Reef’s are my sandals of choice, hands down. I probably have six pairs and I’m always looking for more. I saw the DRAM the other day and it put a smile on my face because the weather is getting better and the ladies are slowly… Read More

  • K-Fed Gets A Search Engine

    K-Fed Gets A Search Engine

    Lucky for you, I spend a good hour a day pissing my life away reading gossip blogs. So when I stumbled upon this K-Fed Search Engine, you could imagine my excitement of finding technology combined with a D-List A-list celebrity! “Search With Kevin” is a essentially a promo for Kevin Federline’s album Playing With Fire. A user can search the web with K-Fed and win a prize. Up… Read More

  • BGR Gets Cocky, Unboxes Red Blackberry Pearl

    BGR Gets Cocky, Unboxes Red Blackberry Pearl

    Looks like our pal Boy Genius is getting cocky. Apparently claiming a Red Blackberry Pearl being released on the completely wrong carrier counts as “calling it.” Don’t think so pal. Just because it came out on AT&T instead doesn’t mean you are a winner. But nonetheless, Boy Genius has got the hot unboxing action up on his site and boy is that Pearl looking mighty fine.

  • Why Apple TV Might Not Be Worth The Hype (Not Yet At Least)

    Why Apple TV Might Not Be Worth The Hype (Not Yet At Least)

    Kudos to iLounge for not automatically hopping aboard the Apple TV hype express. They’ve complied a list of 10 reasons why you might consider holding off on your purchase for the time being. That’s not to say that it’s a useless hunk of plastic, but by no means is it infallible. For starters, if you’ve already got a video iPod and a video out cable, you’ve pretty… Read More

    Patent Monkey: Using PS3 Controller as Extension for Cell Phone?

    Can’t get to your cell phone when playing College Hoops 2K7? This new feature would allow you to use your game controller, PS3 and flat panel TV to see who’s calling and answer it. Sony Ericsson recently received a patent covering the process of wirelessly transferring content or cell phone calls to and controlling them using a remote control or PS3 controller. Read More

  • Notes From News Corp./NBC Universal Media Call

    I’ve just joined the “NewTube” media call with NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker and News Corp. COO Peter Chernin. Notes to follow. Chernin is kicking things off. It took him about 2 minutes to say “Web 2.0″ for the first time. Saying this will be the largest premium video network on the web. Extending offer to other distribution partners, wants to work with… Read More
