    DS-Xtreme Flash "Homebrew" Cart Now 2GB, Still $129

    We looked at the DS-Xtreme Nintendo DS piracy enabler (let’s be honest here: that’s what you’ll use it for) a little while back, but a common complaint against it was that it only packed 512MB of storage. Not true anymore. Now the DS-Xtreme comes with 2GB of storage for the same price as before, $129 (the same price as the DS itself, incidentally). Just think of how many… Read More

    Google Desktop Now Available For Mac

    Google has released a beta of its Google Desktop application for Mac OS X. The application—which is a Universal Binary—indexes users’ hard drives, including fun stuff like e-mails, PDFs, apps and other files. If this sounds similar to Apple’s own Spotlight search technology, that’s because they both do essentially the same thing. Google Desktop had been available… Read More

    WiFi Joins the Mile High Club

    The Wall Street Journal reported Colorado-based aeronautical communications company, AirCell, will be able to bring WiFi access to airplanes soon. The service will be carried over the frequency once used for air-phone service, which the company bought last year for $31.3 million at FCC auction. The connection will provide internet bandwidth equivalent to WiFi on the ground for devices… Read More

    Forget YouTube: Go To These Sites If You Want Hard Core Copyright Infringing Content

    YouTube is clearly the most popular video sharing site on the web. But limits on video length, DMCA takedown notices and billion dollar lawsuits have damaged YouTube’s ability to facilitate serious copyright infringement. The smaller guys are now stepping in to fill the void. Full length copies of well known TV shows and/or movies are readily available on a number of YouTube competitors. Read More

    Get A $60 iTunes Card For $45

    I stumbled upon a forum post on a site that shall remain nameless and discovered that Best Buy is offering quite the deal.

That’s it! Now you can have a little extra content to check out on… Read More

    Mozilla To Build Social Networking Into Firefox: Bad News For Flock

    Mozilla has released details on The Coop, a new product that will incorporate social networking features directly into the Firefox browser. This is not good news for the privately-backed social browser Flock (also built on Mozilla), which is yet to release a 1.0 version of its browser. Many of the proposed features and some of the mockups created by Mike Beltzner (see above) suggest a… Read More

Answers are rated by other Zillow users. Every home… Read More

  • Minitel 2.0

    Minitel 2.0

    When I was a kid I always wanted to use a Minitel terminal. These were essentially dumb terminals hooked up basic servers that allowed you to send email and get information, much like today’s postal service and newspapers. Apparently French ISP Neuf Cegetel is going to create Minitel 2.0 using a mini Linux computer and keyboard. The full kit costs 99 euro – about $130 – and… Read More

    http://www.veoh.com/videodetails.swf?permalinkId=v349384PFJgJGaT&id=1&player=videodetails&videoAutoPlay=0 Two days and two episodes into the new 80-segment, Internet-only show Prom Queen and I’m completely hooked. Ok, not really. High school dramas aren’t really my thing, and I’m betting I spend a lot more time watching Justin.tv than Prom Queen. But the show… Read More

    Steve Jobs Says Not To Expect DRM-free Video

    Everyone except for this guy applauded Apple and EMI’s agreement to sell DRM-free music on the iTunes store. Enjoy it, but don’t expect to see DRM-free video any time soon. There’s two reasons why this is the case: 1) Apple doesn’t have as much clout in the movie industry as it does in the music industry and 2) people have more of an expectation of movies coming with… Read More

    Sony Drops The PSP's Price By $30 To $169

    The PSP has pretty much been a flop (remember when retailers told Sony to drop the price or else?), so Sony has officially dropped the price of the portable gaming system by $30. Once $199, the Core PSP pack (which just includes the system itself, AC adapter and a batter) now carries a $169 price tag. This only applies to North America, so European gamers still have to pay what they’ve… Read More

    Sony Ready To Release Another iPod Dock: The DockTDM

    Poor Sony, lackluster PS3 sales and all but pushed out of the digital music business by Apple. To that end, it’s releasing the $100 Digital Media Port iPod DockTDM-IP1, an iPod dock that integrates with its Bravia line of home theater equipment.

    In a convoluted story involving beer, hard rock, and t-shirts, one man recounts his experience in Holland where Phil Harrison of Sony Entertainment’s Worldwide Studios stood up and tried to auction a PS3 for charity — and failed. It seems there’s a band called Marillion and they’re big gamers. At a recent event, they introduced Harrison who proceeded to offer a PS3 for… Read More

When his wife turned on the machine, she found reams of porn video. John received an angry call from said wife, who complained that the kids could have seen this and that the collection did not include that classic, Juranal… Read More
