• Fujitsu-Siemens debuts new home servers called Scaleo

    [photopress:gallery_47_10_14684.jpg,full,left]This is the Scaleo. While is sounds like a derogatory term for an emotionless ex it’s really a home server, coming in two configurations, a 500GB model with 3 open drive bays and a 2x500GB model with 2 open drive bays, called the 1500 and 1900 respectively. They both share Celeron processors, 512MB DDR2 RAM, 256MB for flash storage (likely… Read More

  • LG: I can't quit you, HD DVD

    Kick ass cover by Willie, BTW LG will not give up on selling hybrid players says UK’s pocket-lint, following in the footsteps of folks like Samsung. Expect more of these “announcements” to come out in the next few days as HD DVD backers scramble to retool their factories to produce hybrid or Blu-Ray only players. “With the recent announcement from Toshiba, Blu-Ray… Read More

  • Ergonomic $30 mouse looks like heaven on a desk

    Oh man, my poor brittle RSI-ravaged wrists feel better just looking at this mouse. I can’t wait until this time next month when I’ll undoubtedly have one of these $30 “Wow-Pen Joy” mice sitting atop my desk when they hit American soil. It appears to function just like a regular mouse except that it’s gigantic and lopsided so as to keep my claw-like hand in a… Read More

  • Phosphor E-Ink Watch review

    After years of suffering, watch geeks are finally getting products dedicated to their quirky and specific tastes. Sure, any oldster can sport a gold Rolex, but what is an Emo kid with a gadget fetish to wear? A Swatch? Companies like Tokyoflash and Nooka have filled that techno-void with watches that are both high-tech and cool looking. Now… Read More

  • Unboxing the Swiss chocolate iPhone

    [photopress:IMGP5667.JPG,full,pp_image] So a mysterious package landed in the TC/CG office just now and Erick came on over and showed us a Swiss chocolate iPhone that was meant for Bossman Arrington. It’s huge and quite tasty. I just have one question, though. What direction is “O”? Oh, and sorry, Mike, but we’ve already eaten half of it. Want us to send it… Read More

  • Help-Key: Use Talisman, Squid, Mogrify and this code to really mess with your Wi-Fi stealing neighbors

    [photopress:eback.jpg,full,center] It’s tempting, isn’t it? You know you just really want to do this. And I can’t think of a reason why not. I’m considering it for my home router, as it and my MacBook Pro haven’t been getting along since the last Leopard update, but the prudent would instead side on the secure side and encrypt their network. But where’s the… Read More

  • Linkin Park playing at secret Apple event?

    The mix-tape I sent to Apple in 1997 must have finally gotten to Steve because Linkin Park front man Douchey McWhiterapenstien aka Mike Shinoda leaked that the band was working with Apple for an NYC event that was supposed to be “secret.” Good choice trusting a rock star with your marketing strategy, Apple. These guys can barely make sure their sex partners are of age let alone hold… Read More

  • Feedburner – Kickin It Old School

    It’s always fun to get the monthly Feedburner check for advertising they insert into the RSS feed. The actual dollar amount is still next to nothing, but I love the fact that, even with nearly 800,000 publishers, 1.4 million managed feeds, and a $100 million payday from Google, they still haven’t automated the check writing process. Someone hand writes all of these checks every… Read More

  • Review: TeleNav GPS Receiver

    I’ve had a couple weeks to fiddle around with TeleNav’s Bluetooth GPS receiver and there isn’t a whole lot to review other than the fact that it works great. It immediately synced with my T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve which is sans GPS via Bluetooth and I was on my merry way. Of course, it didn’t work while in NYC, which is sort of a given so I had to wait until I was… Read More

  • Ripple Tablet T8100 is nice to look at, I guess

    The T8100 convertible tablet notebook from Korean-based “Ripple” is causing a minor stir today (a ripple, if you will) for its good looks. Sure, I guess it looks nice. However, I don’t quite see what all the hoopla is about because truth be told, I’m a weight man. I feel that if a notebook is light enough, it’ll naturally look pretty good. This tablet looks good… Read More

  • Nordic Link interviews Carl Freer of Gizmondo (Yes, that Gizmondo)

    [photopress:Carl_Freer_och_Mikael_Ljungman_002med.jpg.jpg,full,center] Some of you might remember Gizmondo as the almost-vaporware-like handheld gaming device that was the brainchildfart of some Swedes, notably Stefan Eriksson, who later totaled a rare Ferarri Enzo almost exactly two years ago today. Now more details are emerging about Gizmondo’s rumored comeback, sans Eriksson, and it… Read More

  • AT&T announces unlimited voice plan for $99

    AT&T isn’t one to be trumped by anyone (re: Verizon) so they’ve announced an unlimited voice plan for $99 for US calling with no domestic roaming charges or long distance charges. The offer is open to new and existing customers starting February 22, but this offer is limited, however, to standard wireless phones and does not include smartphones, PDAs or the iPhone. Hmm. Helio… Read More

  • TVCatchup on hold after broadcasters weigh in

    The big TV companies have put the hard word onto TV recording startup TVCatchup, which has had its service suspended after complaints from the BBC, Channel 4, ITV and Channel Five. TVCatchup launched in trial around October last year, allowing users to tag the shows they wanted recorded on a programme guide and share those copies with other members. Once you signed up you could use the TV… Read More

  • Fast 128GB solid state drives coming in April

    Solid state drive capacity and availability continues to grow with the announcement of Mtron’s 128GB 1.8-inch SSD. It’ll have maximum read/write speeds of 120MBps and 100MBps, respectively, and will be targeted at UMPC devices. It’s got a PATA interface, so it can replace most existing notebook hard drives pretty easily. And with the 6X speed bump and half the power… Read More

  • Putting startups on the map

    View Larger Map Ages ago I had the idea of putting startups on a Google map and allowing them to add their location and logo. But as is the way with these things I never got around to doing it, which is why I’m glad someone else did. Today I was emailed by Douglas De Jager, CEO of UK startup dotHomes, who obviously had the same thought and decided to create just such a map. I Twittered it… Read More

  • HD DVD in trouble??? Onkyo stops HD DVD production

    Okay you guys, listen up for a second. I’ve got some bad news. It’s been a long and winding road and we’ve all fought really hard, but it appears that HD DVD might actually be on its way out for real. We just got word that Onkyo has decided to stop making HD DVD players. I know you feel. I feel like I got punched in the gonads, too. Read More
