• Two Episodes Into Prom Queen And I'm Completely Hooked

    http://www.veoh.com/videodetails.swf?permalinkId=v349384PFJgJGaT&id=1&player=videodetails&videoAutoPlay=0 Two days and two episodes into the new 80-segment, Internet-only show Prom Queen and I’m completely hooked. Ok, not really. High school dramas aren’t really my thing, and I’m betting I spend a lot more time watching Justin.tv than Prom Queen. But the show… Read More

  • PCs Ready Not So Vista Ready: Call the Lawyers!

    Dianne Kelley is sick of fake Vista stickers. She goes into a store, buys a computer, and finds it can’t run Microsoft Vista’s fancy Aero interface. What’s a poor woman to do? Sue!

  • Seagate FreeAgent Go 160GB Hands On

  • Steve Jobs Says Not To Expect DRM-free Video

    Everyone except for this guy applauded Apple and EMI’s agreement to sell DRM-free music on the iTunes store. Enjoy it, but don’t expect to see DRM-free video any time soon. There’s two reasons why this is the case: 1) Apple doesn’t have as much clout in the movie industry as it does in the music industry and 2) people have more of an expectation of movies coming with… Read More

  • Sony Drops The PSP's Price By $30 To $169

    The PSP has pretty much been a flop (remember when retailers told Sony to drop the price or else?), so Sony has officially dropped the price of the portable gaming system by $30. Once $199, the Core PSP pack (which just includes the system itself, AC adapter and a batter) now carries a $169 price tag. This only applies to North America, so European gamers still have to pay what they’ve… Read More

  • Sony Ready To Release Another iPod Dock: The DockTDM

    Poor Sony, lackluster PS3 sales and all but pushed out of the digital music business by Apple. To that end, it’s releasing the $100 Digital Media Port iPod DockTDM-IP1, an iPod dock that integrates with its Bravia line of home theater equipment. Not too much going on here: just plug the iPod (fourth or fifth-gen, mini, or nano) into the connector then plug the unit into… Read More

  • Sony's Phil Harrison Can't Give Away PS3

    In a convoluted story involving beer, hard rock, and t-shirts, one man recounts his experience in Holland where Phil Harrison of Sony Entertainment’s Worldwide Studios stood up and tried to auction a PS3 for charity — and failed. It seems there’s a band called Marillion and they’re big gamers. At a recent event, they introduced Harrison who proceeded to offer a PS3 for… Read More

  • Time Warner HD Cable Box Includes HDMI, Cool Remote, Porn

    It seems that Consumerist reader John ordered a Time Warner DVR and, after a long wait, received a refurbished unit pre-owned by someone who really enjoys the PR0N. When his wife turned on the machine, she found reams of porn video. John received an angry call from said wife, who complained that the kids could have seen this and that the collection did not include that classic, Juranal… Read More

  • Technorati's Mating Dance

    Update: Dave Sifry responds in the comments, saying “I’ll be very clear about it – Technorati isn’t for sale.” Which means, of course, that Technorati is for sale. Blog search engine Technorati has always been more secretive about itself than most other startups. They won’t comment on venture financings, for example, even to correct incorrect information. So… Read More

    An Australian company just released software that acts as your online doppelganger. Called MyCybertwin, the software serves as a go-between between friends, customers, well wishers, etc. and your online personality. In other words, it’s a programmable avatar (God, that word bothers me so) that people can interact with. For example, you may be AFK, but your cybertwin is always online. So… Read More

  • Wii Outsells PS3 and Xbox 360 in February, Must Mean It's The Best

    The Nintendo Wii outsold both the Sony PlayStation 3 and the Microsoft Xbox 360 during the month of February. Nintendo sold 335,000 Wiis to Microsoft’s 228,000 and to Sony’s 127,000. Obviously this means that the Nintendo Wii is the bestest console of them all. And with games like NiGHTS coming out, I really can’t see how the Wii will lose the next-gen war. (Provided people… Read More

  • Macpack Pwns Your Backpack

    The ultimate in fanboy apparel has arrived in the form of the Macpack. All it took was a dead Macintosh SE from the late ’80s and some hard work. After trying to restore his Mac, lamanalchemist went and attached backpack straps to the machine, gutted it, and is now using it for storage. Comfy? Hardly, but think of all the whistles you’ll get walking up to the Genius Bar. Macpack [MAKE] Read More

  • Kyocera MARBL Released On Virgin Mobile

    Nothing too exciting here, but certainly worth mentioning. Today Virgin Mobile released yet another inexpensive phone for the pre-paid fanboys. The Kyocera MARBL is just a basic flip-phone with literally no exciting features. Camera? Nope. Bluetooth? Sorry. MP3 Player? Not a chance. Seems as if the best feature on this phone is either the design or polyphonic ringtones, the latter of which… Read More

    The Inquirer‘s Charlie Demerjian thinks you’re all idiots (and dumb sheep and suckers…) for applauding the EMI anti-DRM stance announced yesterday. His main rationale is that you’re all celebrating being sold back rights that never should have been taken from you in the first place. Fair enough. But then he goes on and on about how a 30 percent price increase is… Read More
