  • Meet The Guy Who Ruined Transformers

    Autobot Mirage And I’m not talking about Michael Bay.

  • Kite + Nokia N95 = WTF

    I’m usually not one to judge others, but there are certain instances where I question one’s sanity. This is one of those times. Crazy Norwegian Eirik and his brother-in-law decided to duct tape a Nokia N95 to a kite while vacationing in Denmark to see what sort of video footage they could get. A very cool experiment and the video speaks for itself, but you won’t catch me… Read More

  • SunRocket Cans 25% of Workforce or 30 People, Whichever's More Sensational

    The aggressive rollout of VoIP services from local cable companies over the past few years has likely caused some growing pains for companies like SunRocket and Vonage. The router-like VoIP devices can be a tad tricky to set up (especially for neophytes) and only being able to use one handset is far less convenient than being able to pick up a phone anywhere in your house. Your cable company… Read More

  • Fox News Camera Crew Gets Out Of Line

    I don’t want to put too much personal commentary into this one so I’ll leave it to you guys to sound off in the comments. Reader Owen sent us this video of a mascot from Hungrr.com handing out pins and collecting donations for a charity on the day of the iPhone launch in NYC.

  • Great Outdoors: Fishing Gear

    Since I’m from New Orleans, that pretty much makes me the only Cruncher who has ever been on a boat. Yea it’s a stereotype, but in this case it’s true — I’m from NOLA and I grew-up fishing. There is good reason for it though, fishing is one of the most relaxing activities on the planet. It’s peaceful and detached and it offers a lot of time to avoid… Read More

    Oh geez, oh geez. It’s no secret that I love girls and that I love tattoos, so when you put the two together, I’m in heaven.

It really bums me out, but those of you with tattooed-girl fetishes and… Read More

  • iPhone.com Finally Acquired By Apple

    June 29th came and I thought to myself, “Surely Apple purchased iphone.com from whoever owned the domain.” To my surprise, I found that iphone.com was just a very shoddy “Web 1.0″ page with links to unlocked phones of all sorts – a sort of primitive business front of some sorts. I figured Apple would just settle for not owning iphone.com but boy was I… Read More

  • Never, Ever Do This To Your PS3

    Found today on the Blu-ray forums, some dude’s friend had his PS3 fizzle out on him. Know why? Because the genius threw duct tape over the vents on the back of the unit.

  • Universal Will Still Supply Apple With Music

    The other day, people started getting freaky because Universal Music Group stated it was not renewing its iTunes contract with Apple.

After realizing the public flipped out about the statement… Read More

  • My Weekend With iPhone: It Kicks Ass, With Room To Kick More Later

    There is an irony to the fact that there are companies who make their living turning out crappy phones model after model, and then someone like Apple comes in and shows them how it’s done. The iPhone just might live up to the hype, but it’s not perfect. Yet. I’ve been using the iPhone for the better part of a day. It arrived here at CrunchGear HQ at 9:41 AM. I’m the kind… Read More

  • Contra 4 Poster Appears In Magazine

    I’m pretty sure there are more people reading Cat Anus Weekly than Nintendo Power, though I could be wrong on that one. However, this month’s Power revealed an awesome, gigantic Contra 4 poster complete with Bill and Lance ready to kick some mutant ass. However, Konami’s penchant for buff dudes from 1980s films is seriously getting out of control. Look at the dude on the… Read More
