• Palm Releases Treo 750 Audio Alert Update


    If you’ve been experiencing a loss of audio on your Treo 750, which has caused you to miss very important calls and message notifications then drop what you’re doing and pay attention. Not every Treo 750 owner has been affected, but if your software version reads TREO750-1.13-ATT or TREO750-1.13-CNG then you will need this update. So what exactly is causing this sudden loss of… Read More

  • BlackBerry 8820 Coming, 8800 Being Phased Out

    The Interwebs are at it again with insider info that claims the Wi-Fi enabled 8820 will be launching as early as next week on AT&T rather than in August, but it’s all hearsay at this point. Does this mean much to us? Unless you’re on AT&T then probably not, but if you’ve been eyeing the 8800 and don’t care about Wi-Fi then you’ll be able to snag one for… Read More

  • DemystifyingDigital: New & Easy Printers

    DemystifyingDigital is a new feature written by Dan Havlik, editor of DemystifyingDigital.com

    Printers are the kind of devices you usually ignore until there’s something wrong with them. And with how poorly made and unnecessarily difficult most printers are to use, there’s often something wrong with them. (“PC Load Letter error” anyone?) The following are three… Read More

  • Maybe Google News Needs A Little Tweaking

    An interesting story came across my desk today – A “news” site called Axcess News reported that President Bush was undergoing a colonoscopy, leaving Vice President Cheney in charge of the United States for the duration of the procedure. The article, which was the top story on Google news briefly yesterday, had the unfortunate title “Bush butt probed, Cheney in… Read More

  • Fun With Frickin' Lasers!


    Wicked Lasers has been making high-powered handheld lasers in China since 2003, and I finally got my pyromaniac responsible hands on one. While playing with the Wicked Fusion for several days, I tried to burn plenty of things (yes, including myself… real tattoos are expensive, y’know!), but I had the most fun pointing out stars and buildings. Okay, that’s not true: I spent most… Read More

  • ICTV: Interactive Television on the Box you Already Own

    Interactive TV has been around for a while in various forms ranging from the SMS voting driving American Idol, to the Finnish choose-you-own-adventure drama Accidental Lovers. Interactive TV’s paradigm argues for pushing PC functionality on the TV instead of TV functionality on your PC. Mark Cuban has opined at length on the shift. A lifetime ago, in the mid 90’s, the first… Read More

  • Information Architects 2007 Web Trend Map

    Information Architects have released their Web Trend Map for 2007, a subway map of the 200 most successful websites on the web, ordered by category, proximity, success, popularity and perspective. In theory it demonstrates the relationship between various sites and ideas, with a strong focus on Web 2.0. I’ve always found these sorts of things clever, in a geeky sort of way, but… Read More

  • The AudioFile: Suspicious iPhone Activities

    I was riding my bike the other day, when I got a call from Apple. I pulled over to the curb, and by the time the light on the corner changed, an iPhone was on its way to my apartment. I hadn’t even requested one, yet 36 hours later, it arrived. Sure enough, within an hour I was compulsively checking email and surfing the Web on it, like a kid picking at a mosquito bite. I did pretty… Read More

  • Wiicoil: Longarm Zapper Surfaces

    We like the return of Nintendo’s Zapper and what it means for real FPS games. But sometimes you want something bigger to frag with. Enter the Rifle Gun Prop, which, like the official Zapper, turns your Wiimote and Chuck into an instrument of digital death. This would be great for a port of Big Buck Hunter, any Area 51 game, or Schoolastic’s Attack of the Jacko’s. DealExtreme… Read More

  • SmartShopper Needs $147 Price Drop to be Competitive

    Who has time to write things down on a pad of paper anymore?! When I need to add something to my grocery list I prefer to walk downstairs to the kitchen, rummage around in the junk drawer for my SmartShopper device, make sure it has fresh batteries, turn it on, press the record button, say “Apples,” say “Apples” again because it thought I said “Mantles,”… Read More
