• The Japanese MusicMug: DAP Speaker In A Mug

    Meet the MusicMug! It’s from Asia and it’s a mug! With a speaker! And a DAP jack! It plays your iPod’s music! It’s one of those things we probably won’t see here in the US, but, then, in this case, that’s OK by us. Really. It’s made of bone china, comes in black or white (like your iPod), and has a speaker concealed in the bottom. We’re not sure why… Read More

  • GeoTagger: GPS Tagger For Photogs

    Jelbert, a group from the UK, knows that the only way to make vacation slide shows more boring, perhaps, is to include timestamps and GPS data along side photos. With the GeoTagger outfitted atop your camera via the flash shoe, not only will people be able to tell which beach you’re at, but exactly where on the beach, and at what time the photo was taken. OK, so it’s not really for… Read More

  • GTA Blamed In Another Court Case

    GTA Blamed In Another Court Case

    It seems as though we’re never going to get passed that whole “blaming actions on violent media outlet” phase. Just how many times can Marilyn Manson and Doom be blamed for things going extremely wrong? Back in 2004, Cody Posey was convicted of killing his father, stepmother and stepsister after years of mental and physical abuse. So what went on at Cody Posey’s trial… Read More

  • PepperPad 3 Pre-Happiness

    PepperPad 3 Pre-Happiness

    We got our hands on a PepperPad 3 last week and we just got the go-ahead to write about, so we decided to do a quick pre-review discussion and go into a full review later this week. The PepperPad 3 is an Internet tablet with Bluetooth, WiFi, a full QWERTY keyboard, and a Linux OS. It makes a great kitchen/living room computer and is excellent for web surfing and email. The reason I’m holding… Read More

    TGS 06: PSPs Go Silver

    Since Sony Europe had already announced the release of the pink PSP in October, Sony needed something new and fresh for their Playstation Portables at Tokyo Game Show this year. So Sony Japan announced that Japan will be getting a silver PSP. I’m not gonna lie–the silver PSP is hot! But this still doesn’t solve the bigger problem of, you know, the Nintendo DS owning the portable… Read More

  • A Cavalcade of Nokias

    A Cavalcade of Nokias

    Just rolled in from this morning’s Nokia event where they unveiled a whole slew of phones. Many of them are retooled versions of the previous N-series – the N80i is an update N80 with better web software and the N91 8GB is an 8GB version of the 4GB N91 – but the rest of the phones are fairly compelling. BTW – Do not ask me what that Nokia car is about as I just took a… Read More

  • Launched Treo 750v Gets Launch Date For Launch

    “Launched” can mean more than “available”, it seems. For example, the Treo 750v for Vodaphone was “launched” a couple of weeks ago, but it’s not “available”. See? But don’t worry, our lucky Eruo-bretheren, your new Treo is set to be “available” October 2, according to the Vodaphone official site. Unfortunately, the price is… Read More

  • Battle Test: SanDisk Cruzer Titanium

    Battle Test: SanDisk Cruzer Titanium

    A few years ago I got a Lexar 2GB USB flash drive for Christmas. It came in a small, unattractive package and stood amongst other far more valuable items. In retrospect, it was probably one of the single greatest and most useful gifts that I’ve ever received. The drive stood with me through a lot and never once failed. Not even when I lost its cap and feared the USB slot would be damaged in… Read More

  • Epson Photo Bank and PMP Stores, Displays Your Pictures

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/4, DivX, H.264, WMV, and MJPEG video. The display is pretty huge at 4 and 3.8-inches, and has a resolution of 640×480. It's pretty much a great photo dump and video player, if you fit yet another gadget into our camera bag. We may have to take out all this Jello Pudding. Damn it. The new Epson Photo Bank and PMP… Read More

  • Sony Vaio Type U With 32GB Flash

    Sony’s Vaio Type U, the UMPC-like handheld device, gets a storage bump from 16GB to 32GB, doubling the price and making this gadget almost certainly out of anybody’s price range. Why? Because it’s $1,800. There’s also now 1GB of RAM, the same slide-out keyboard, the same webcam, and the same everything else that was in the older 16GB version. Sony Vaio Type U now with 32 GB… Read More

    Fring brings Mobile VoIP to the Next Level

    Israeli startup Fring is pushing the envelope on Mobile VoIP with an application that is knocking the socks off the competition on Series-60. I’ve been using Fring for about a week and a half and I can say: I’m impressed. The integrated presence features (allowing you to see which of your Skype or Google Talk buddies are online) combined with IM are enough to sell me. I would say the… Read More

  • Theoretical 1000PPM Printer in the Works

    In a paper for the Applied Physics Letters journal, two engineers from Israel detail a plan to make an ink-jet printer that spits out 1,000 PPM, something most human beings wouldn’t need in their home office. The head is similar to an LCD monitor, and has micro-reservoirs of ink that’s responsible for one section of a page. This means there’s no movement of the ink head across… Read More

  • Asus W2P HD DVD-enabled Notebook

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/digital TV tuner. Pretty impressive already, but when you add in an HD DVD drive this is one multimedia beast. No pricing info has been released, but if you're just adding together all the components we're guessing this will be $2,500 or more.

  • Mini Media Center PCs Finally Hit the US

    PC Alchemy, a pretty decent media center store, has three Mini PC form-factor media centers up on their site now. Each of them cost $1199, and each of them are small enough to fit on top of whatever set-top-box you have now. The M1B, M1S and M2B all have slightly different shapes, but all have a 1.82GHz Core 2 Duo T5600 inside, along with 1GB of RAM and a 100GB SATA drive. They also ship with a… Read More

    Nokia Drops a Bunch of Phones

    Alright, so the quality on these shots is about as good as that Paris Hilton porn, but I’d hate for Biggs to get all messy for nothing. So here is some hot man hand on phone action for your viewing pleasure. Viewer discretion is advised: Here you’ll see the N95 at the top. It has a 5MP camera, GPS, word map, WLAN and HSDPA. Expect it to cost roughly $87215684265. Next in that pic is… Read More
