• TerraTec Electronic Noxon 2: An iPod Dock+Radio With Built-in Wi-Fi

    It’s been a while since I’ve written about any sort of iPod speaker, but TerraTec Electronic’s Noxon 2’s attempt to be all things to all people is worth a mention. This little guy has a built-in iPod dock (duh!), Wi-Fi and FM radio. It’s also got USB ports so you can connect external hard drives and the like. The Wi-Fi is used to connect to Internet radio… Read More

  • Babelgum Basically Just Launched

    Babelgum, the Joost-like TVIP startup, effectively just launched to the public. Click on this link, which takes you to a press download page, and request an invite. The company has played second fiddle to Joost since it was announced second and it doesn’t have the benefit of being started by Skype’s famous co-founders. The link above takes you to a press invitation page, but it… Read More

  • Sub-$100 Nvidia GeForce 8400 to Launch June 19

    When it comes to discrete graphics cards it’s either feast or famine. You either spend five million on a super-duper card or your poke along in Civ IV with whatever Dell sent you when you bought your PC, knowing that you’ll never see the Legion’s armor in its full DX10 graphical glory. NVidia is introducting a sub-$100 GeForce 8400 next week that should change all that. The… Read More

  • Drobo Review: Frickin' Awesome


    Drobo: Small device, big storage
    I personally use a lot of storage. Every year, I find myself buying yet another 200GB external hard drive because my iTunes library is swelling or I’ve pirated enough movies to make Paramount go bankrupt. Either way, buying multiple external drives is both expensive and annoying. For every drive I use, I’m forced to give up another USB port… Read More

  • Rumor: 3G iPhone at End of Year

    An excited tipster dropped us a line today about AT&T’s network roll-out and, interestingly enough, a 3G iPhone rumor. Clearly this is grain of salt territory, but he’s saying that AT&T employees are being told that a 3G version of the iPhone is coming out soon — perhaps even as soon as Q4 2007 aka the Holidays. Popular opinion slated a 3G version for Q1 2008 or… Read More

  • Video: How To Build a Water Balloon Catapult

    By following this how-to video to the letter, you’ll be able to make a water balloon-flinging catapult this weekend. All you need are some sections of PVC pipe, a couple of general purpose tools and the wherewithal to put it all together. (Which, frankly, leaves most of us here out.) This video does a fine job of showing the play-by-play, culminating in the launch of a toy cow on top of… Read More

  • Camouflage Hummer HT1 Cellphone: Let's Be Reckless

    Finally, a cellphone for people like me who don’t give a damn about the environment and spend their free time burning rubber tires for fun. It’s the Hummer HT1 and it comes in a few choice colors. The best is the camouflage since it evokes all the emotions and instincts that make being an alpha male fun, like sneaking up on enemies and acting before thinking. It’s the type… Read More

  • JVC Unveils World's Largest HDTV

    Football fans can rejoice knowing that there is now an even bigger screen to watch Tony Romo fumble on. Now you can experience failure on a 110-inch rear-projection screen of awesomeness thanks to JVC. This $53,000 TV set hasn’t hit the US yet and probably won’t be hitting your local Circuit City anytime soon considering it’s only in Japan at the moment. The set includes all… Read More

  • Dell Not Leaving The LCD TV Business After All

    Reports of Dell’s withdrawal from the LCD TV business have been greatly exaggerated. It turns out that the company plans has no plans to exit the biz, but will instead focus on reselling 37-inch or smaller TVs. That doesn’t mean that all that thought-provoking analysis I did doesn’t still apply, it just means that we should never trust the Taiwanese Economic Daily newspaper… Read More

  • Windows Vista: Up Close, Personal

    Ars Technica is running a massive article on the innards of Vista. As I mentioned before, I like Vista and I think it’s a good product. I haven’t used it in about two months, but that’s neither here nor there. However, I do like a good “behind-the-scenes” story. Who doesn’t? Clearly there’s very little here we didn’t already know — UAC keeps… Read More

  • LED Swing Full Of Cheap Thrills

    BCXSY has created a swing it’d love you to see. It’s an LED swing that lights up at night to create a soothing ambient glow that probably (in designer speak) “creates an atmosphere of calm for the child”. Yeah, fantastic. How about you install four of these swings at an inner-city park and watch them get destroyed in a matter of hours? Or better yet, install them in a… Read More

  • The AudioFile: Heavenly Audio Gear


    In my Brooklyn neighborhood, I’m surrounded by Christians, Hasidic and non-Hasidic Jews, Rastafarians, Santeria initiates, and the occasional Sikh. The MP3 player market must have similar diversity, right?naïveriffic! Well, not quite… in fact, I was disappointed at the dearth of religious zeal wrapped in a shamelessly commercial product–though Kosher cell phones do give me… Read More

  • OS X Leopard To Be Animated OS

    Alright, I’m not diving that far into this, but here’s the deal: WWDC is approaching, Jobs will speak about OS X Leopard, and will most likely unveil the “top secret” features Apple has kept under wraps. But these secrets could blow away the idea of an operating system as we know it. See, the next incarnation of OS X might be animated is what I’m trying to tell… Read More

  • First In-Store iPhone Ads Spotted

    Hold. The. Phone. iPhone, that is. The first pictures of AT&T’s in-store iPhone ads have appeared online and millions around the globe are going b-a-n-a-n-a-s. It’s mainly eye candy and we present it here, today, to whet your appetite for Apple’s civilization-changing cellphone. Huzzah! iPhone Banners at AT&T Stores [Mac Rumors] Read More

  • HDMI and You: So Confused Together


    Confusion about HD components and interconnects has spawned so much misinformation from all sides — including retailers, journalists, manufacturers, and forum-posting electrical engineers — that it’s time to set the Blu-ray discrecord straight. Monster Cable is the current target of somewhat misguided accusations because of this lack of understanding. The issue is: Does a… Read More

  • Lego MMO In The Works?

    Digital Trends is reporting that a Lego MMO-style game is currently in the works. Dubbed “Lego Universe”, the game will allow you to play the roll of a Lego figure in a Lego world. I’d imagine Lego is ready to let you drive around in vehicles, smashing everything in sight. I mean, that’s what makes Legos half the fun – destroying them! MMO maker NetDevil is… Read More

  • $199 Is The Ideal Price For a Video Game System: Microsoft

    The ideal price for a video game console is $199, says Microsoft, and Wall Street analysts believe the company will slash the price of the Xbox 360 this holiday season in order to approach that price. One of the company’s group product managers admitted that it was “well aware” of the magical number and attributed much of the Nintendo Wii’s success to its low price (and… Read More

  • Original Sony/Nintendo Super Famicom Found

    Any gamer who is a big enough dork to comb over Wikipedia for some video game history should know that the original Sony Playstation isn’t exactly the gray, overheating 32-bit console we all love so dearly. Originally, Nintendo has hired Sony to help develop its Super Famicom (SNES) console. This model had a CD drive and was essentially a predecessor to Sony’s Playstation. A… Read More

  • Ban on 3G Handsets With Qualcomm Chips


    The U.S. International Trade Commission has ordered a ban on new 3G handsets that contain Qualcomm chips, as these infringe on a Broadcom patent. It gets a little confusing… see phones that have already been sold in the U.S. are exempt, and this includes future sales of the same model. Further, current handset brands don’t need to change either. But any new 3G devices will have to… Read More

  • InfoSpace Goes With Virgin Mobile

    If you’re a Virgin Mobile subscriber you’ll be doing your searching with InfoSpace. The two companies announced that InfoSpace would supply Virgin Mobile with its suite of mobile platform services including integrated search. This will allow subscribers access to search the Web, WAP sites and of course Virgin Mobile’s own portal and storefront to find ringtones, games and… Read More
