• The Clone Wars might not actually suck

    [photopress:20080212_2_sm.jpg,full,center] I’ve been reading the last couple days about this forthcoming CGI Star Wars movie, and I’m torn. I’m not a fan of CGI prequels/sequels simply because I like actors on a screen. However, I think many stories — especially this one — need to be fleshed out more, and comic book tie-ins and official novels are usually crap… Read More

  • Video: My Apple Genius

    It’s Valentine’s Day, and this is cute as hell. And for the young lady in the video, I can fix your broken iPod. I’m kind of known for it. Read More

  • No Date For Valentine's Day? Get Some "Adult Content" At Zivity

    Zivity, the venture-backed adult content site, which we first covered in August 2007, is starting to get mainstream press attention – co-founder Scott Banister appeared on the Fox Business Channel late last year, and Forbes wrote a long piece on them last week. The service, which distributes payments to models and photographers based on user voting, is still in private beta. Today… Read More

  • Xbox 360 red ring of death repair kit from Team Xecuter

    Flickr’d Team Xecuter, whose X2 Pro modchip I used on my Xbox1 back in the day, appears to have developed a kit that fixes red ring of death-affected Xbox 360s. The kit, which costs $12.95, includes all the necessary Torx screws to open your console. The kit was developed by an Xecuter member whose 360 rrod’d on him recently. Rather than send it… Read More

  • Indiana Jones High Def Trailer

    From CrunchGear: Check out the high definition trailer for the new Indiana Jones movie on Yahoo Movies. You can’t embed the trailer, of course (that would make too much sense), but they have some ridiculous countdown widget thing that shows the exact number of seconds until the movie is released. In case you are curious: http://l.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/mo/ij4/ij_countdown.swf Watch… Read More

  • RIAA wins this one; OSU filesharing offenders named

    Seven months after the RIAA requested the names of 11 OSU students accused of copyright infringement, the university is finally coughing them up in the face of further legal threats. The courts decided that there was no good reason the uni shouldn’t give the RIAA the names, so while OSU stalled as long as they could, they would now face contempt of court if they don’t follow… Read More

  • New Philips mobile lets you pop in a AAA when you forget your charger

    I really don’t know why we don’t see more of this melding of the new and old school. Sure, there are products on the market that let you charge your phone with batteries or through the car’s cigarette lighter, but these are aftermarket solutions. This one has a slot for an AAA battery built in, letting you rock out with 3 more hours of talk time. Of course, a AAA is a bit… Read More

  • Sony PlayTV previewed

    http://blip.tv/play/AamLWw Not to sure when we’d see this if ever at all, but it’s cool to see Sony’s PlayTV getting closer to launch for those over in Europe. Like Mr. Zatz pointed out, I don’t think this could or would ever be a necessity or even a wanted add-on stateside. What do the PS3 owners think? And why does the BBC get first dibs on this? That UI looks… Read More

  • FreeAgent Central aims at… free agents who hate book-keeping

    Privately-backed FreeAgent Central (FAC) is a new online money management and accounting tool intended for small, service businesses of 1-3 employees or sole traders in the service sector (so not retailers). The UK firm comes out of beta today and is also available from now as a planning tool in the US/globally, but without the tax functionality. The reason it’s interesting is that… Read More

  • Worms World Party coming out on N-Gage (again)

    I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve never played any of the titles from the “Worms” series but I’ve heard good things and my cousin John used to get all riled up about the games when we were younger. Nokia’s just officially announced that Worms World Party will be available on the new N-Gage platform, just like it was on the old N-Gage platform. You’ll… Read More

  • Watch out Craigslist, Sister Site Kijiji Is Taking Off.

    It’s not yet a Craigslist killer, but eBay’s free classifieds site Kijiji is taking off in the U.S. eBay, of course, is also an investor in Craigslist, but its 25 percent stake doesn’t give it a controlling interest and the other 75 percent is not for sale. So in March, 2005, eBay launched Kijiji as its own competing free classifieds site overseas. Then last summer, it… Read More

  • Boingo invades McDonalds

    I can’t remember the last time I grabbed a bite to eat at McDonalds. Wait. No. I remember now. It was right after I watched “Super Size Me” and I had the biggest craving for a Big Mac. It was tasty. Well, the next time you’re grubbin’ on some disgusting fast food at McD’s be sure to pull up clips of “Super Size Me” and watch Morgan Spurlock puke… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson's shift to WinMo about diversification

    Some people were surprised to hear that Sony’s gonna start using Windows Mobile here and there, most notably on the upcoming XPERIA X1 — or what I like to call “The Moist-Maker” because it looks dead sexy. When prodded for an explanation as to why Sony’s suddenly taken a shine to WinMo, a company spokesperson tactfully explained that it’s all about… Read More

  • 'Love Tester' technology now available in phones

    How passionate does you lover feel about you? And how do you guys feel about people using the word “lover” to describe a significant other? Do you show up at a party and tell everyone that your lover’s going to be there soon? Do you show up at parties? I don’t any more (of course, I’d have to be invited to not show up). Aaaand, I’ve already gone way off track. Read More

  • Day in the life of a (Star Wars) biker scout

His biker scout outfit was pretty bitchin’. I should probably make myself one. I hear it gets… Read More

  • iWave Cube: the littlest microwave that could

    A microwave is a bachelor or college student’s best friend. Let’s be honest here. Does anyone really like to cook? Yeah, I didn’t think so. Living in tight quarters like most apartments in NYC, for example, that don’t have stoves really sucks because you either have to eat out all the time or acquire a little gas grill. The latter isn’t always safe, either. Having… Read More

  • Sharp unveils 6x laptop Blu-ray burner

    I’m not sure how many of you own a laptop with a recordable Blu-ray drive, but if you’re in the market for one then I suggest you wait another few months. Today, Sharp announced a drive that can burn dual-layer discs at an astonishing 6x thanks to a tiny new laser that measures in at just 0.13-inches. Sharp plans to mass produce in April. A desktop drive was also announced that… Read More

  • Xbox 360 shortage, RROD on the rise

    Here’s a mix of good and bad news for Microsoft. The Xbox 360 sold so well during the holiday season – 1.3 million sold in December – that you can’t find it on store shelves now. Apparently, MS didn’t anticipate the console being a hot commodity and retailers are not too happy with their misjudgment. The shortage is expected to last through the quarter and MS… Read More

  • What's Next for YouTube (Video Editing, Recommendations, Advertiser Analytics)

    Last night at an event in NYC dubbed “Videocracy,” YouTube gave marketers a sneak peak at some upcoming initiatives. Silicon Alley Insider‘s Michael Learmonth tried to get in, but was thrown out. Luckily, Deep Focus CEO Ian Schafer took notes. Here is what he learned: —YouTube is excited about its active sharing feature that lets YouTube watchers signal to… Read More
