• CamSpace: Wii without the Wii for Wiiless Wiinnabes

    This is interesting to say the least. Roi over at the ol’ mothership has a nice piece up about CamSpace, an online gaming community that’s set to throw its doors open to the public. The idea is to use webcams as gaming input devices, making for a Wii-like experience without the need for a $250 console. It appears to work, though I haven’t tried it myself. The idea… Read More

  • Screenshots of 360 Unreal Tournament III

    This was undoubtedly the first and only shooter that I was ever good at. Many hours were lost spent in college refining my fragging and camping abilities. I’ll definitely be picking this up for 360 when it hits shelves this summer. I’m also assuming Midway will have this for me to play at E3 next month. Joygasm. The five exclusive maps, split-screen and two new characters are just… Read More

  • Video: The Star Wars floppy disk

    What do you do with an old floppy drive and a disk? Why you make it into a musical instrument, forcing the motor or the drive to play the Imperial March from Star Wars. I’m not sure how this was done, but I love it very much. Read More

  • BlackBerry Bold appears on AT&T site, let the drooling commence

    The connection in my hotel here in Berlin is slow as molasses or FF is being weird, so my apologies for the strange screen cap. While everyone else is frothing over the iPhone 3G, I’m patiently waiting for the Bold to hit the streets. AT&T now has it up on their site, so jump on over and check it out. Nothing new, though. The specs we’ve all been expecting and heard about… Read More

  • Samsung Instinct to cost $200

    Phonenews has the scoop on the Instinct‘s pricing and that $200 price tag definitely competes against the 8GB iPhone 3G. It has a retail price of $449, but you can obtain a $150 with a 2-year plan and just to sweeten the deal, Sprint is adding on another $100 MIR just for the Instinct. Just like the iPhone 3G, you’ll have to tack on one of Sprint’s pricier plans, but… Read More

  • How cold is your beer? Coors Light knows.

    You’ve all seen the Coors Light bottles with the color changing mountains by now, but if you haven’t then you’ve been living under a rock or you like warm beer. I hear there’s a heat wave in NYC and I’m not looking forward to coming back to that tomorrow, but at least I know my beers will be cold since the mountains will be nice and blue. The plastic bottle… Read More

  • Nintendo planning USB devices for the Wii

    Nintendo of America just posted a job opening on its website for a “Software/Hardware Tester”. Among the job’s responsibilities was creating a plan to bring USB devices to the Wii. It was reported that the job posted 3 days ago on Nintendo.com, but when I went there today I couldn’t find it. At this time Nintendo has not publicly mentioned that is has plans to bring… Read More

  • Vizio is not in the wrong over MPEG-2 patent, says Amtran

    Amtran, the Taiwan-based, majority shareholder of Vizio who happens to be the biggest manufacturer for the US-based brand is adamant that royalties for the compression technology had been paid for. In fact, the licensing fees had been paid to MPEG LA between Q4 of 2007 and Q1 of 2008, says Amtran. Read More

  • New Firefox Mobile concept video looks amazing

    If there was ever any doubt that Mozilla could pull off something amazing with Firefox Mobile, this video pretty much stomps all over it. Aza Raskin, head of user experience for Mozilla Labs, put this user interface concept demo on his blog this morning. Simply put: it rocks my face off. Their idea for how to handle tabs just about annihilates everything we’ve seen from other mobile… Read More

  • What are you getting the old man for Father's Day?

    I’ve been giving this a lot of thought in the last few weeks and I’m not sure what to get my dad. The parentals don’t need a TV because they just got a 52-inch Samsung plasma, so that one is out the door. Although, he might want something for the office. This 32-inch Westinghouse 720p, W3223, set isn’t too shabby and for $699 that’s not a bad deal. Heck, I might… Read More

  • 60 inches of this ridiculous ethernet uber-cable costs $500

    Oh dear, oh dear. I’m surprised the description doesn’t mention that your signal is being accelerated by being bathed in snake oil. It lowers my estimation of the human race’s worth when anyone can actually be foolish enough — or simply rich enough — to buy something like this. Ultra-high-end solutions like this are regularly mocked. Audiophiles can’t tell… Read More

  • For digital TV switch, man upgrades half-century-year-old TV

    If you’re one of the dozens of Americans thinking about finally upgrading to a digital TV when the Big Switch comes in February of next year, you might want to consider a conversion kit. They’re cheap, and the government is giving a $40 coupon to those looking to switch over. And if you’re wondering if your current TV is compatible, it is. In fact, this enterprising UK… Read More

  • New Scandal At MediaMax Gives Us Excuse To Embed A Video Clip From The Office

    MediaMax, a perpetually controversial San Diego based startup, says we need a social network around paper products file sharing. More on that in a minute (as well as a relevant video clip from The Office), but first a note on a new scandal brewing. In the past few weeks, we’ve received a number of complaints about MediaMax, the troubled file storage site that lost vast amounts of its… Read More

  • Bionic Woman, 50, is faster, better, and stronger than your mom

    At the end of this month, after 20 years of operations, all of Eileen Brown major joints except her right elbow will be man made. She has suffered from rheumatoid arthritis since she was in her 20s; now 49, she hopes to get her new replacement left hip before her 50th birthday. She had this to say when he got her right hip replaced: “Most people are stuck in bed for about two weeks… Read More

  • Griffin prepped for iPhone 3G with four cases, more to come

    They might not be new in the product line, but Griffin is prepared with redesigns of their popular Wave, Nu Form, Elan Form and Elan Clip cases for the iPhone 3G. All cases are priced at $24.99 except the Elan Form, which is priced at $29.99. All cases will be available on the Griffin site by end of the month. Apple stores will be stocked on July 11. I think I like the Nu Form the most. Read More

  • Snow Leopard won't support PowerPC Macs

    Snow Leopard, or OS X 10.6, went out to developers at WWDC yesterday, and one glaring aspect that worries some is the fact that 10.6 is made specifically for Intel-based Macs, meaning that G5 won’t run it. In fact all PowerPC-based Macs are left out in the cold. This was bound to happen, though, as Apple’s switch to Intel processors has been complete for many months now, but this… Read More

  • ‘Strong Bad’ Wii gameplay video, it’s coming to PC too

    http://www.dailymotion.com/swf/x5qtox Back in early April we took a peek at “Strong Bad’s Cool Game for Attractive People” that had just been announced for Wii Ware. It appears that the game is going to be available for the PC as well and there are a handful of demo videos over at the Telltale Games web site. There’s a “playable” demo, too (sort of). As… Read More

  • LicketyShip: Founding CEO Out, Ditches Business Model To Focus On Couriers As A Web Service

    When Lickety Ship launched in late 2006 to deliver ecommerce items to purchasers within four hours of checkout, I asked if it would end any differently than the ill-fated Kozmo, which burned through $280 million in capital before a spectacular flame out in 2001. Kozmo didn’t charge for deliveries, and people would jokingly buy a packet of M&Ms or other small item and have it… Read More

  • Sprint to reorganize rate plans this weekend

    Sprint users are getting new plans, or so says the Internet. The carrier is restructuring its plans to be simpler and make more sense. Basic plans will give you 450 or 900 minutes for either $40 or $60. $10 gets you the same plans with texting allotments. Or you can pay $90 for 900 minutes and unlimited texting, talking, and data, or get the $99 plan that has unlimited everything. Pretty… Read More

  • Handy: modular 2.5" front port thing with USB ports, card readers, drive slot

    Now here’s something I could use. My computer’s front looks good, but it only has the optical drive bay at the top and two ports at the bottom — why not make it pretty and functional? Brando USB has these handy front port modules available with swappable bits in case you decide you need a 2.5″ drive bay more than a multi-reader. Front port things have been around… Read More
