    Bell & Ross Blue BR01

    The Basel show is going on this week — it’s a big watch show in Switzerland where the pashahs and Captains of Industry send their buyers to pick up a few $100,000 trinkets. One stand-out item is this updated Bell & Ross BR01 Instrument Series watch. It’s an automatic timepiece with a honking big case and blue luminous hands. If you have to ask how much it costs, you… Read More

  • Guitar Hero Publisher Confirms Upcoming Wii Version?

    Guitar Hero Publisher Confirms Upcoming Wii Version?

    Is Guitar Hero 3 headed to the Nintendo Wii? It very well may be, if you believe the publisher’s Web site. (And why shouldn’t you?) A posting in the site’s Knowledgebase section says it all: “Guitar Hero 3 for the Playstation 2, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii are currently scheduled for release in the United States in Fall of 2007.” Well hot damn, Guitar Hero for the Wii.

  • Patent Monkey: Olympus Wearable Displays for Real Life Gaming

    Patent Monkey: Olympus Wearable Displays for Real Life Gaming

    Olympus has consistently launched pretty hot concepts and has kept their innovation track strong with 76 patents so far in 2007. Would getting into digital display eye wear be that much of a stretch from their experience in digital cameras? Well, they have been thinking about it. Actually, Olympus hasn’t been the only ones dabbling in this nascent area. Read More

  • Clipmarks Enhances Its Search Abilities

    , I started using the free browser plug-in — which at its most basic function lets you clip and save the words and pictures you want from a Web page, instead of having to bookmark an entire page — to shop for tech products and write stories about said products. However, there was one feature that would have made my job much easier: search. What’s the point of clipping and… Read More

  • Other World Computing's 160GB 7200 RPM Portable Hard Drive: Fastest One Out There

    Other World Computing's 160GB 7200 RPM Portable Hard Drive: Fastest One Out There

    The fellers over at Other World Computing can now boast about having the world’s fastest, high-capacity portable hard drive, a 160GB palm-sized delight. The $280 Mercury On-The-Go hard drive runs at 7200 RPM and uses either a USB 2.0 or FireWire 800/400 interface. (The 200GB hard drive is only 4200 RPM.) Not only that, but OWC bundles copies of backup software with the hard drive. And let… Read More

  • Quake III: Team Arena Coming To XBL?

    Quake III: Team Arena Coming To XBL?

    According to GamersReports.com, a quick query on the ESRB website reveals that Quake III: Team Arena is listed as an Xbox 360 title. Most of us know that Q3TA was originally released years ago on the PC, so either this game is showing up a few years too late or it’ll be released as an Xbox Live Arcade title. We’re going to go with the latter. No release date is posted on the ESRB… Read More

    Drobo Is A Robot With A RAID-Array

    Meet Drobo. He’s a robot and although he doesn’t look like one, he certainly can do plenty of robot-like things. The device comes with four separate drive bays and can intelligently control the data managed on them. Watching a movie on drive 1 but need to swap out the drive it’s on? No problem. Drobo will automatically swap the movie to another disk inside. There’s… Read More

    Blackberry Finally Gets AIM Client And More


    I can totally understand why Blackberry owners are sighing in relief right now. The Blackberry’s lack of a decent IM client or dedicated AIM client made me not want to use my Blackberry half the time. Now an official AIM client, Live Messenger, and ICQ client have all been officially released by RIM… sort of. The downloads are freely available, but you must update the service… Read More

    Some Retailers Stop Carrying 20GB PS3

    Sony can’t catch a break. Now it looks like the company itself and several retail outlets have stopped selling the 20GB version of the PS3. Sony’s own SonyStyle online store (note: what a terrible name for an online store—SonyStyle! Yuck.) and retailers like EB Games and Best Buy now only offer the more expensive (and more profitable) 60GB PS3. Sony says this is because of… Read More

  • BlackJack Contender Primed for Market, Adds WiFi, Looks

    Those ninjas at UBiQUIo have a new phone that looks to be aimed squarely at the BlackJack from Samsung. The QWERTY-enabled 503G shares not only the form factor of the BlackJack, but also many features, including Windows Mobile, HSDPA, a 320×240 sceen, and 64MB use Bluetooth. What’s better, it’s running the new WinMo 6, to BlackJack’s 5, and includes WiFi and a… Read More

  • T-Mobile Replacing MDA With Wing (Possibly)

    Most likely due to the fact that no one cared about the device, T-Mobile has started to do away with the MDA. As a replacement, the T-Mobile Wing (aka HTC P4350) will take over full-QWERTY/PDA duties, featuring the brand spankin’ new Windows Mobile 6.0. MyMobile911 reports that the device will have a spring-loaded sliding keypad, the same screen at the Cingular 8525, and a blue… Read More

  • New Day, New Apple TV Ad

    Seriously. Apple marketing folks know how to push all the right buttons. Look at the signifiers in this: Jack Black, lovable underdog. The iMac: beautiful computer that no one owns but the audience wants. The house: California ranch with lots of light. Then you hit the TV in a nice spacious living room and there’s Jack Black again, rocking out. Pull back, show the box in all its… Read More

    Halo 3 Beta Hits Xbox Live on May 16

    The semi-closed Halo 3 demo will be available on Xbox Live on May 16. (At 8 a.m. EDT, to be exact.)

    CrunchGear Boooring Edition: Dell Axes The Axim

    Look at that headline! So much humor contained in such a small sentence! Anyways, yesterday Dell announced that it would no longer be producing its Axim line of PDAs and the company has no further plans to do a follow-up product. If were like every other site on the net, we’d give you the history of the Axim, but CrunchGear cuts straight through the bull to deliver the facts you want. Read More

    MySpace TrailerPark: Dedicated Movie Trailer Site

    I got a chuckle this morning when I saw an email from MySpace that they were launching a new service called “TrailerPark” (I thought perhaps they were targeting an underserved demographic for membership expansion). But their new service has nothing to do with that. Instead, it’s a dedicated site for movie trailers. The service is run through MySpace Video. Trailers can be… Read More

    How much porn are you downloading? Collectively speaking, enough for major hard drive manufacturers like Western Digital to develop drives targeted towards your bad habits.
