• Ring Hides Dirty Secret in Mobster Style

    We’re not sure why this is called the Mullet Ring, but it’s certainly a “gentleman’s secret”. In side this so-gauche-it’s-cool gold pinky ring is entombed one blue Viagra pill. So when you’re acting like Joe Pesci and talking smack about your partner’s new ride, and you gesture with that pinky-ringed finger, you can literally wag your manhood in his… Read More

  • Competitio.us: track your competitors online

    Competitio.us is a very useful looking competitive intelligence service built in Ruby on Rails that launched today. It’s a simple but powerful way to keep track of competing companies online. This is something that I think many of our readers, at least the ones working on startups, could find very helpful.

    Zune With Cordless Headphones: File Next to Pigs, Flying

    A little bird sent us this clearly doctored image of a Zune with some mysterious “WiFi” headphones that apparently use a chip technology yet unknown to modern man to compress a DSP and Wi-Fi receiver into buds the size of an anal polyp. Please, friends, don’t be fooled – Microsoft could never come out with something this cool. Read More

    TagLoops: Remixable Web Movies Made Out of Tags and Feeds

    TagLoops is an alpha stage Flash “movie” creation tool built by Greek IT consultant Harry Vikatos. Movies are built by pointing to images, audio or RSS feeds hosted elsewhere. Those items are tagged inside TagLoop where they can be reordered and layered over each other. The end result is a multi layered multimedia Flash movie. Those movies can also be remixed by other TagLoop users. Read More

  • ID Vault: Like A Tiny Safe In A USB Key

    If you’re not afraid of someone getting a hold of your personal financial information on the Internet, you should be. Cyber-criminals are everywhere: Starbucks, the library, next door, on the other side of the world, right behind you!

  • Power Chute: Slows You Down to Speed You Up

    Running as exercise has indeed come a long way from its roots a gazillion years ago. Most notably in the late seventies and early eighties with the first modern designs for running shoes and, more recently, with Nike’s shoes featuring iPod integration and bluetooth. But technological advances still take a backseat to tactical advances. The new Power Chute by Power Systesm (these guys like… Read More

  • PSP Touch Screen

    PSP Touch Screen

    The PSP TouchMe is a touch screen that connects to the PSP via USB and lies over the PSP’s original screen. TouchMe is homebrew-based device that will only work with specific homebrew software, so don’t expect to Sony to start licensing games that have touch screen compatibility. Cool either way though, right? The TouchMe mounts onto the PSP by screwing into the top of the PSP and will… Read More

  • WoW Inflitrates South Park

    WoW Inflitrates South Park

    I wasn’t lying when I said this game was huge, so huge that World of Warcraft will be the theme around the South Park season premier airing tonight on Comedy Central. Don’t worry WoW players, it gets even better: Blizzard Entertainment, the developers of WoW, worked with Matt and Trey Parker for the WoW content that will be featured in the episode. I can’t wait!

  • Real Voice-to-Voice Translator, It's Atsui (Hot)!

    Who knows how many lives this new Japanese-to-English voice translator will save at sketchy sushi joints? Developed by Sharp and IBM jointly, the PalmPilot-looking handheld listens to what you say, translates it, then “speaks” it back in Japanese. I certainly hope it works well, as comedic mishaps based on poor translations aren’t funny if they’re happening to you. Read More

    CombiMouse: Apply Directly to the Forehead

    Ergonomics are hot. I could use a little ergo myself here in the dungeon I call an office. But maybe this is stepping over the line a little. It’s some sort of split keyboard , proudly tested by Wichita State University, that looks like a a pachyderm got ahold of a Logitech and shat out something that looks neither comfortable or usable. Hey, what do we know. Maybe Wichita knows something we… Read More

  • Big Brand Vs. Boutique: Does It Really Matter?

    With HP buying VoodooPC last week and Dell purchasing Alienware earlier this year, there’s been more than a few comments around the Web on how these mainstream vendors will impact the quality of the boutiques. The fact is, many companies have high-end, mainstream and value brands, so why should computer vendors be any different? HP and Dell deserve some credit for realizing that just because… Read More

    here in the United States, meaning it can finally play catch-up. That day appears to be fast in coming. In fact, sources from eWeek have leaked that on Friday, October 6, T-Mobile will be holding a press conference in New York City to announce the launch of its new 3G data network. Not only that, they detail that the network will sadly be incompatible with the European UMTS standard, as the… Read More

    PS3 Causes Sony Stock Drop

    Contrary to popular belief, I don’t hate Playstation 3. In fact, I can’t wait to get my hands on one – if it works, that is. David Gibson, an analyst of for Macquaire Equities, released a report stating that Sony just had a recent a 2.75% drop in their stock due to technical problems with the Playstation 3 units at TGS this year. We are concerned that such a negative problem has… Read More

The three titles, rated E, are Pocketbike Racer, Big Bumpin’, and Sneak King. Two of the three games will feature online play via Xbox Live.

  • BlueAnt Wireless Realizes People Like Color, Adds to Bluetooth Headsets

    I like the BlueAnt X3 Bluetooth headset: It’s small, lightweight, connects to three devices at the same time including your Windows or Mac PC for VoIP calls, and it’s reasonably priced at $69. And now, I can add “comes in six colors” to my list of likes. Just in time for the holiday season you’ll be able to pick up an X3 in black, cool white, hot pink, gold, bronze… Read More

  • Ultimate Ears triple.fi 10 Pro Triple-Driver Earphones

    Ultimate Ears has spent most of the past 11 years creating custom-molded headphones for musicians. But not to be outdone by the likes of Shure and Etymotic, UE put out a line of more consumer-friendly universal-fit earbuds last year under the super.fi name. Today, it announced the pre-order availability of its $399 triple.fi 10 Pro headphones that feature three miniature speakers per earpiece. Two… Read More

  • Dyson Airblade Video

    Here’s a video of the Dyson Airblade in use, drying your hands and killing all sorts of British germs. Suzy from Shiny Shiny demos it for us, showing how it dries your hand like the car wash dries your car. The one thing we found kind of disgusting is the bowl of water everyone needs to stick their hands into in order to get their hands wet to test the drier. That bacteria-killing function… Read More

  • Elvis Was a Hero to Most, But That Doesn't Stop me From Downloading the Sun Sessions

    A charming little video by the Futuristic Sex Robotz who seem to be upset by some sort of “copy protection” on music. I suspect they’re just angry because they don’t have big record deals like Nelly Furtado and don’t get to be taken both from behind and the front by rapacious contacts. Next year, boys! via BoingBoing Read More
