• Create a Simple Contact Form with Contactify

    Contactify is a new service to create a simple “Contact Me” form that let’s people send you emails without knowing your email address. Create an account in a few steps and get a URL back that points to the contact form, which contains a captcha to reduce spam. It works well, but it would be nice if they widgetized this to allow people to add it to their MySpace page or… Read More

  • Next Version of the PlayStation Here in 18 Months?

    The PS3’s not even done tanking yet and Sony already has designs on a PS4 of sorts, here within the next 18 months. The always credible Smarthouse Web site says that Sony will take the innards of the PS3 and stick them into a gray box, making the next system, if you can call it that, more geared toward home entertainment use than the PS3 proper. Not that the PS3 has many good games for it… Read More

  • Gigabyte WinMo 6 GPS Smartphone


    I have a hard time wrapping my brain around why or how the Chinese are getting WinMo 6 smartphones before anyone else in the world. It’s not because I want a WinMo 6 phone or any WinMo phone for that matter, but how does that all work out? The T-Mo Dash is the first to receive the the new OS, but the phone isn’t that great, so I’m not heartbroken or anything. But I… Read More

  • Xbox 360 Making for Slow Going of GTA IV

    At Microsoft’s press conference during last year’s E3 Xbox exec Peter Moore happily announced that Grand Theft Auto IV would be making its debut on the Xbox 360. And a year later the game is still scheduled for an October arrival on the 360 as well as the PlayStation 3, but things are apparently going slower than Rockstar expected. GameDaily is reporting that Rockstar creative… Read More

  • Optimus Keyboard: Priced at $1,500, Shipped in December

    We’ve long thought that the OLEDrific Optimus keyboard was vaporware. While we still haven’t seen anything more than a prototype, it now has a release date and price tag, both features vaporware rarely has. We’re happy to say we were wrong. We’re unhappy, though, about the fact that we can’t afford one, and you likely can’t, either. The pre-order date… Read More

  • RhinoSkin Aluminum Laptop Hardcase

    Observe exhibit A, one long-ass video about an aluminum laptop case. Sure it’s adjustable so it can fit basically any laptop you can cram in it, but does the video really need to be five minutes long? My attention span is good for three minutes tops, so if you’re like me here are the details on this RhinoSkin Universal Aluminum HardCase. Because it’s… Read More

  • Rumor: AT&T's iPhone Displays to be Insane, Fancy, Extravagant, Large

    AT&T is getting all the hot phone love this summer, from the Curve to the iPhone. The question remains though: To which brand does the carrier’s loyalties lie? We ourselves find it hard to care. The Curve has a large AT&T marketing budget behind it, but reports are surfacing that it pales next to the inevitable onslaught of iPhone pain we’re about to experience. Boy Genius… Read More

  • Hippy Bath in a Bag

    If you’re the “outdoorsy” type, then you’re probably not very bright. The idea of abandoning thousands of years of technology, industry, social evolution and hygiene to “get back in touch with nature” is insulting to us entrenched city folk. But some of you keep it up. Whatever. Have some granola. At least with help from the Sun, you can pretend to get clean. Read More

    How much joy can a few guys with toys and a good camera give the world? OMG like SOOOO much. This special airs June 17. Read More

  • AT&T Gets First Crack at Blackberry Curve (Surprised?)


    In case you were wondering about the Blackberry Curve and where you can get it, because I’m sure you have been, I’ve got you covered. The Curve will be available on AT&T’s network first, which isn’t much of a surprise, ’cause they’re always down with the latest Blackberrys first. No official word on the launch date, but expect it sometime this Spring. Read More

  • SMobile: Mobile Security For Your Mobile

    We at CG as technology “experts” are often approached by friends and family for solutions to life’s technological problems. Por ejemplo, a friend noticed an increase in his Blackberry spam. He didn’t mind all the porn so much, but was concerned about potential viruses. And I said “You can’t get STDs from e-mail,” and he said “no dude, viruses on… Read More

  • CrunchGear Boooring Edition: Ask.com Wins Some Award

    I bet that you, me, and even Dupree all use Google for our web search. But when it comes to mobile phone-based searching, it’s really anyone’s game. Know why? Because I’m trying to make a call or send 300 texts within the next hour and I really don’t have time to use my phone for searching. In fact, chances are, if I actually have a WAP or Internet plan for my phone… Read More

  • Samsung Super TVs

    Samung’s new TV line comes in sizes that range from 37- to 52 inches and can play back 1080p video at full resolution, a feat that was once only available – at least at a price that humans could comprehend – to DLPs. The TVs, the M87, R87, and Q97 will be about $3000 when and if they hit these shores. That said, it’s currently UK-only and just now shipping, so get on… Read More

    http://www.tubearoo.com/player/spiked_player.swf?file=http://www.tubearoo.com/videocodes/84608/data.xml&auto_play=false Tubearoo.com, a popular(?) video-sharing site, shot out a press release today with an interesting statistic about the growing number of people viewing streaming video that I took extreme liberties with when I wrote the headline. According to the National Cable… Read More

  • LG Shine Gets 3G HSDPA, Now Does Video Calls, Still Not Here

    LG must hate America because not only has it still not released the Shine here yet, but it’s already going to launch an updated version with 3G (HSDPA) capabilities this month. The extra bandwidth can be used for video calls thanks to the built-in VGA camera. Otherwise, the Shine, she remains the same: 2-megapixel camera, MP3 playback and shine like you’ve never before… Read More

  • Blu-Ray Just Got Hella Cheap

    Been itching to take full advantage of that hi-def TV you recently purchased? If there ever was a time to buy a Blu-Ray player, it’s now. Pioneer recently announced it would be bringing its BDC-2202 Blu-Ray player to the United States in June. It can read BD-R discs at up to 5x and dual-layer discs at 2x speeds and looks like a pretty decent player overall. But why so great? What makes… Read More

    As Halo 3 gets closer and closer to its release, related merchandise has already started trickling out. Above are the four coolest Halo 3 figurines you’ll see this year.

  • 3D Widget Dashboards Could Make Leopard Even Easier to Use When Browsing Widgets

    I’m usually pretty excited to hear Apple news but this interests me to the level of 0.0. It seems Apple is working on a cube-like spinning system that will presumably allow you to add multiple pages of widgets to your Dashboard instead of just one panel. If you use widgets, more power to you. However, if you’re like me and hit the Dashboard for a little quick calculator action… Read More

  • Why You Can't Just Go Ahead and Post "09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0"


    Fred von Lohmann at the EFF posted a very interesting article on why you can’t just go around posting “09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0″ on every public website in the world and hold “09-f9-11-02-9d-74-e3-5b-d8-41-56-c5-63-56-88-c0″ parties in your home, office, or school. Essentially, the Digital Millennium Copyright Act states that you cannot… Read More
