• Zune Phone Confirmed! Launch Scenario! 4G WiMax Action! Rumors Off the WTF-o-Meter

    . On Monday, Microsoft filed a mystery application with the FCC for an enigmatic wireless device that could be used to talk over the Internet. Sounds like a VoiP device, right? Not really. The device is described as being used for “consumer broadband access and networking,” which doesn’t sound like vanilla VoIP to me. Microsoft goes on to say that the device would use OFDM as… Read More

  • iWoofer Is Out Of This World


    I can’t quite put my finger on it, but the iWoofer looks like a cross between a gremlin and some Japanese anime. Aside from its unique looks, it packs a combination of a downward-firing subwoofer, tiny titanium drivers and an FM radio, making it a sure-fire hit in the saturated iPod-accessory world. With an elevated setting you can watch your videos and see the pretty blue lights… Read More

  • Hi-Rez Skype Hack

    Though Skype is getting cooler and is still an incredibly useful app, the video quality during conference calls is complete ass. A dude named Jason did some tinkering with Skype and found a way to up the video resolution to a super-sweet 640×480. It requires the latest version of Skype and digging into the config.xml file. Inside the file, you just edit a few parameters, save it and next… Read More

  • Verizon Is Going To Jail

    Shame on you Verizon. First you run out on your wife, then get into a bitter battle over alimony. Now the telecom giant is going to jail for failure to appear in court. Some guy named “Poodleman” was hosed by Verizon when they double-billed him, messed up his credit and didn’t do anything to fix it. Verizon was sued, Poodleman won and he was supposed to be paid. Well Verizon… Read More

  • EMI In Talks To Sell DRM-free MP3s

The story comes from the Wall Street Journal, but got picked up by the Associated Press this… Read More

  • Wii Weights For The Overweight Lummox

    Are you a Wii owner/fanboy? Need another pointless purchase to keep Wii Sports fun for another week? Look no further than Wii Weights. These normal weights that you can buy at Target for $5 come with a Wii logo and are probably “designed” to work with a bunch of Wii Sports titles. Luckily, they’re not for sale and probably never will be. Though I must admit with the weather… Read More

  • The AudioFile: Is the RIAA Smoking Apples?

    The music industry should be in a state of panic right now, but not because of piracy. The confusion surrounding digital music and the future of DRM was compounded this week by Steve Jobs’s open letter to the recording industry. And if the responses from the Norwegian Consumer Council and the RIAA were graded like reading comprehension questions on the SAT, neither group would make it… Read More

  • The Apple Home: Is Apple Changing The Face Of Home Entertainment???


    The first week of Feb. is drawing to a close and the iPhone is still buzzing around the blogosphere like wild fire.

I’m forced to stop and think about what sort of impact this small, silver, square and every other product from Apple will have on my life and in our homes. Look… Read More

  • Powerset Hype To Boiling Point

    Silicon Valley based search engine startup Powerset has mostly been closed lipped about their product.

In addition, a $3 a day or $15 a month subscription allows the phones to display up-to-the-minute… Read More

  • Newsflash: Megapixels Don't Mean Megapictures


    Mr. Pogue, over at the Times, has a great must-read on something photoheads have long known—when it comes to megapixels, bigger doesn’t matter (too much.) The way I see it, people love simplicity, especially when shopping. If there’s any easy-to-read stat that registers as “more is good,” it makes it a lot easier for companies to push their products, and to… Read More
