  • PatentMonkey: Microsoft to Take on Joost?

    Two things show a company is getting ramped up to enter a business – filing for patents and lining up a trademark. Microsoft has done both in the online video arena and could be in a position to take on Joost.

  • Fujifilm Z5fd Review


    I’ve been watching former film camera manufacturers struggle to grab a piece of the digital camera market for a few years now and, at this stage in the game, I’ve been fairly impressed. Take Fujifilm, for example. Long known for their great film and prints, the former giant has had to contend with digital ninjas like Canon and Nikon while still remaining solvent. I’ve tried… Read More

  • Slide 2 Unlock: Slide To Unlock Any Pocket PC

    One of the many revolutionary features of the iPhone, oh, excuse me, the Jesus Phone, is “slide to unlock,” whereby the user slides his or her digit across the screen to unlock the phone. Now, thanks to the freeware app called Slide 2 Unlock. It works on an Pocket PC phone and gives it the same “slide to unlock” capability. It’s essentially a glorified… Read More

  • Nokia Media Transfer Suite for Macs

    Fina-freaking-ly. Nokia has finally released a transfer suite for Macs, something that has been sorely lacking for about five thousand years now. All you have to do is download the app and you can start dragging files and music over from iPhoto and iTunes as well as iPhoto import from Symbian phones and application installation. It’s still in beta, but it’s nice to know someone… Read More

  • More PSP Slim Information Revealed

    It’s no surprise that Sony has considered and was probably working on a new version of the PSP. Whether a complete overhaul or just a re-design, one thing is for sure: Sony is up to something. Kotaku reports that the new PSP will feature a slimmer design, a bright new LED screen, and a faster UMD drive.

  • 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.

  • 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
