  • Hot Fuzz: The Sleep Squad Alarm Clock

    Nothing scares the living crap out of you more than the po’ kicking down your door and telling you to freeze. So if you woke up to the sound of a police officer screaming “This is the police, you have until the count of three to get out of bed or we are coming in, 1…..,2…..,3” with a hail of siren sounds and flashing lights going off soon after, I’d bet 10 bucks… Read More

  • Sprint Nextel At A Loss For Q1

    What a shock. I am stunned. The carrier with the coolest phones, most awesome rate plans, and best service ever, Sprint Nextel, posted a loss for Q1 of 2007. Well a company as awesome and rad as Sprint Nextel couldn’t have lost that much cash, right? Try $211 million. Sprint Nextel blames lackluster sales and the loss of high-quality subscribers for the loss. Word is that a lot of… Read More

  • The Great Digg Riots of 2007: Digg Caves In, Link to Encryption Keys All You Want, Kiddos

    The nerds cried foul and Digg acquiesced. Digg’s founder—and deity to many—Kevin Rose just posted an explanation for all the shenanigans that happened yesterday regarding HD DVD encryption key stories being pulled. The short of it, Digg has a policy of removing stories from the front page that it deems could get it into legal trouble—porno, piracy, and here… Read More

  • Looks Like The iPhone Needs Some Pizzazz

    I’m sure plenty of you are still excited about the iPhone, but when the end of June rolls around, will you buy one? It’s not looking likely according to a recent Markitecture poll. Out of 1300 people surveyed, only 6% said they were “likely to purchase the iPhone” when it comes out. The reason? Mostly the price and having to deal with a contract/specific carrier. Ouch!

  • Wall-Climbing Robot Is Speedy

    A robot at Carnagie Mellon University is turning heads and giving reason to go “Oooh!” and “Ahhh!” The robot climbs walls at the rate of six-centimeters a second, which is pretty fast if you click the link and watch the video. That little bugger flies! It’s able to stick to the wall by using gecko-like suction pads that stick to the surface it’s climbing. Read More

  • Blackberry Curve = 8300

    Browsing through the dark webs of the internet this morning, I stumbled upon a BGR article that explains how RIM is now directing traffic from http://www.blackberry8300.com to http://www.blackberrycurve.com. I suppose this means that RIM is going to do a huge campaign for pushing the 8300 onto consumers as the Curve. Look how well the Blackberry Pearl did without having a bunch of wacky numbers… Read More

  • Trim and Sexy 2nd-gen Iriver Clix Hands On


    When the original iriver Clix came out, it made waves with its clickable faceplate navigation, but it was chunky and expensive. The second-generation model completely eliminates those issues with a slimmer design and pricing that’s competitive with that of the iPod nano. It’s got all the features you’d need in an MP3 player, as well as sound quality that even picky… Read More

  • Hackers to Hack Vista at Black Hat Conference


    I feel like I’ve been writing about hacks and flaws all day…oh wait, that’s because I have been. Maybe I shouldn’t have watched Hackers last night, but Angelina Jolie is so hot. Dino might be claiming that Vista is more secure than Mac OS, but I think a Polish pair of security researchers have something to say about that. Black Hat will be running a two day course… Read More

  • Digg Surrenders to Mob

    To say what happened today on Digg was a “user revolt” is an understatement. The Digg team deleted a story that linked to the decryption key for HD DVDs after receiving a take down demand and all hell broke loose. More stories appeared and were deleted, and users posting the stories were suspended. That just got the Digg community fired up, and soon the entire Digg home page was… Read More

    We are geeks, therefore we drink coffee. Lots of coffee. But making a whole pot at home can be wasteful, and since you live alone and have no friends, let alone a lady friend, you need something more efficient and compact. This wouldn’t be a blog post if I didn’t first describe the problem and then give an answser, so behold the WMF1 single-serving portable coffee maker. It is… Read More
