  • WiFi/RF-Blocking Paint To Hit Stores

    We’ve covered tech paint before, but this is an interesting idea. If it does indeed work, this special stuff helps keep your WiFi inside your home. It essentially acts as tinfoil, blocking the radio waves that WiFi travels on, meaning that if you use this on your exterior walls, snooping neighbors won’t have access to your base station. Sadly, it’s not smart; it… Read More

  • Sony-Ericsson Launches First 3G Phone for US-and-A

  • BlueAnt Supertooth Light Bluetooth Speakerphone


    Though BlueAnt is calling this a speakerphone, it’s just a full-duplex, high-performance speaker. Well, not just a full-duplex, high-performance speaker of course, but the Supertooth Light is for hands-free use of your Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices (up to five can be simultaneously paired with the unit). The $99 Supertooth Light features Clear Voice Capture and Digital Signal… Read More

  • Microsoft Thinks It's Cool, Crashes PS3 Euro Launch

    Sony launched its super awesome PS3 in Europe on Friday and Microsoft was there to kick sand in Sony’s face. How professional. The software giant pulled a bunch of childish stunts (not that it’s the first time) to distract Sony’s fans from enjoying themselves. In London, Microsoft handed out a bunch of chairs to folks waiting in line with a Web site address; the Web site… Read More

  • UPS Launches Delivery Intercept Service

    As far as my experiences with UPS go, they have to be one of the worst shipping companies ever. But with this new “Delivery Intercept” service, I may be willing to give them another shot. The service allows you to take control over an already-shipped package by allowing you, the recipient of the package, to either return the parcel to the sender, deliver to another address, reroute… Read More

  • Crumpler Geek Travel Contest Concludes

    Sorry I didn’t announce this on Friday as I had promised. A vicious case of Strep throat has floored me for the past few days. Anyway, I know it’s late, but I’m sure you all would still like to know who was the final winner for our Crumpler Geek Travel Contest. Remember, each of our winners will receive one of three Crumpler bags of their choosing worth up to $120. So who won… Read More

  • Nike+ Workout System Coming To All Nike Running Shoes By Year's End

    Nike plans to expand its Nike+ iPod nano workout system to all of its running shoes by the end of the year. The AP just interviewed one of the company’s execs where he wouldn’t commit to a specific date or anything, since that’d be convenient and useful. Right now, the system only works with a handful of Nike’s running shoes, including the Air Equalon+. (Any pair of… Read More

  • iRiver T50: 1GB of Cookie-Cutting

    iRiver keeps fighting the useless fight against the iPod, this time trying to convince us that its 1GB T50 is as cool as the shuffle. How you could think otherwise is beyond me, what with its little knob navigation thing and tiny 1.01-inch screen. Like everything else iRiver, it does support nerd-friendly audio formats like OGG (and MP3 and WMA, natch). Other useful gems include FM radio… Read More

  • Build Your Own Car (If You're Living In Japan)

    Now we know why cars in Japan are cheaper; people build cars as a hobby! Or at least that’s what Mitsuoka Motor is betting on. The auto company has released the K-4 micro car kit. This is a real, working mini-car that is about eight-feet long and comes in an old-school sports car design. You assemble everything on your own (to an extent) and after about 40 hours of work, you’ll… Read More

  • Clocky: The Unboxing

    Though I did an extremely brief “video overview” of Clocky on Friday, I thought I’d share with you a few unboxing pictures since Clocky has fantastic-looking packaging. It should also be noted that Clocky only costs $50, not $60. Oh! And I used Clocky as an alarm clock this morning. The result? Me getting out of bed and having to crawl under my desk to shut off the… Read More

  • Dragon's Lair Coming To Blu-Ray

    When the word “Laserdisc” comes to mind, I think of three things: Dragon’s Lair, Space Ace, and failed technology. Luckily, nostalgic fans of the animated Dragon’s Lair will be excited to know that it will be coming back in the form of a Blu-ray disc. Come April 9th, you’ll be able to leap over pits, fight dragons, and walk through dark corridors in HD with… Read More

  • Gamestop's Shoddy Customer Service

    Alex over at Joystiq tells an interesting story about a Sunday-drive to Gamestop where he tried to purchase God of War II. When Alex entered the store and asked for a copy of GoW2, the employee behind the counter asked if a reservation had been made. When he replied “No”, the employee at the Gamestop walked over to the display wall, grabbed a case, opened it, and stuck a copy of… Read More

  • CG/CTIA Smack Down: 6 Hours Left

    on their site. The site offers a limited number of products at a deep discount. The Smack Auction reduces the price over time, but only until supplies run out. If you don’t buy before they’re out, you’re stuck. The key is to time it and buy just before you hit that magic, hidden number. The fine folks at Jellyfish are planning to offer phones and laptops at a considerable… Read More

  • Apple TV OS Leaked Over The Weekend

    You give a dog a bone and he’ll come back with a copy of the Apple TV OS you know. Basically, over the weekend, someone discovered that Apple TV is running a stripped-down, modded version of OS X. Big surprise, right? Now we’re not sure how, but someone created a disk image of the Apple TV OS and threw it up for download. Of course by now, the link is down and this guy is about to… Read More

  • Frickin' Motorola LAZR Beams!

    All I want are some frickin’ lasers! Is that too much to ask? Motorola’s newest handset is making the rounds under the LAZR moniker with limited details. What we do know is that it runs a Linux OS, has 512MB on-board memory and Motiquette. If the RIZR wasn’t enough to hold your RAZR appetite at bay then maybe the LAZR will do the trick. Who knows if the LAZR is even the… Read More
