• Google Answers to Rise From Dead?

    Yahoo Answers is the undisputed leader in the Q&A space, vanquishing Google Answers to the DeadPool late in 2006. But now, a number of researchers who previously worked on Google Answers have started their own new service: Uclue. The team has also posted on the TechCrunch Forums looking for people to help out with the project. Like Google Answers, people asking questions are charged. The… Read More

  • Treo 680: Now Featuring More Boring

    or Motorola, we also get news that the popular Treo 680 is now available sans camera. Why would anybody want a Treo without a camera? Because it’s safer in some corporate environments, that’s why. In many corporate settings, like, say, the RIAA, the ability to surreptitiously snap and send photos is a nightmare that keeps security-minded types up at night. But with the modern… Read More

  • GDC 2007 Day 2: Planted in the Press Room


    The second day of GDC is underway and there are panels galore. None of which are particularly relevant to the CG shtick. I’ve planted myself in the press room and am attempting to update the site as the server smokes and flames and sputters toward oblivion after getting two front page diggs. My highlights yesterday were small, but interesting. There is little in the way of gadget… Read More

  • iSoundSpa iPod Dock: Wake Up to Sounds of the Ocean

    iSoundSpa represents the next evolution of iPod docks, that is, the unholy combination of an iPod dock and an alarm clock. Yes, it will charge your iPod while it’s plugged in. Yes, it has a built-in radio. No, it won’t dismantle the Taliban. It does, however, have six “soothing” nature songs that you can wake yourself up to, including “ocean” and… Read More

  • Anti-Terrorism Weapon Doesn't Kill, Makes You Puke

    Who cares about CeBit, GDC, PMA and CTIA when this year’s Navy Opportunity Forum for small businesses has weapons that shoot invisible wall-penetrating beams that make people dizzy and puke? My flight and hotel reservations are booked! Read More

  • South Park’s Good Times in HD


    While I’m never going to complain about South Park, the animated series does seem to be an odd choice for an HD download on the Xbox Live service. While typically hilarious, it isn’t exactly like the show is known for the most stunning graphics, but today fans will get to download a true classic of an episode, and possibly one of the best looking ones too. The fun-packed… Read More

  • Wii Want Our Wii


    Wii Line Circa Summer 2006. Now it’s worse. Love it or hate it, the Wii is the most popular console out right now and Nintendo has some ‘splaining to do. The Wii launched last year yet people still have to line up outside Best Buy for hours and sell their kidneys to get this bundle of fun. Kotaku threatens violence while Nintendo America’s Reggie Fils-Aime says: We work with… Read More

  • What's New in iTunes 7.1?


    iLounge has a great, in-depth examination of iTunes 7.1 and all of its improvements/changes. Most interesting is the full-screen cover-flow view that offers a bit of Front Row goodness without much overhead. Lock down the keyboard on that and you’ve got a great little jukebox application. They also added Apple TV support — shipping March 20, it seems, according to the Apple… Read More

  • Tuneview: See What's On Your iPod From Across The Room

    Tuneview is a great new way to control your iPod from just about anywhere in your home (sort of). If you’re like me, then your iPod goes with you everywhere.

The Tuneview has an LCD that enables you to remotely view the… Read More

  • Sprint EX720 EV-DO In The Wild

    Vince from Slashgear has his hands on the Sprint EX720 and I couldn’t be more jealous. The newest Rev. A broadband card makes my s620 comparable to a slug.

You have to activate the card on a… Read More

  • Home Theater Watch: Where a 1.5-inch Screen Means "Theater"

    The Home Theater Watch holds a whopping 2GB of memory, which you can fill with MP3s, WMAs and proprietary video files. That’s right, don’t go thinking you can just load up any ol’ Xvid on here. No, sir. Included software converts video files (granted, from the most popular formats like AVI, MPEG and WMV) into the format used by the watch. No word on if this magical software… Read More

  • Portable VoIP: $400 You'll Never See Again

    If I’m going to spend $400 on a VoiP phone, namely the Panasonic KX-WP1050, with WiFi connectivity but no 3G or anything else, it had better have some other useful features, like the ability to make me a really good fish taco or the capability to get me out of debt fast. This phone does neither. Perhaps if it came preloaded with Mandy Moore’s phone number, then I might think about it. Read More

  • AT&T Making Our Lives Better?

    AT&T is making the couch potato experience that much easier for subscribers by letting them control the TV with their cell phone. And I thought this was a useless idea. Beginning today, Homezone customers will have the option to control their DVRs through web-enabled mobile phones just like they would with their regular DVR remote. With the addition of this functionality, AT&T also… Read More
