• Nintendo Mii's=Big Business

    Who says the Wii isn’t the most popular gaming console right now? The Wii was once again the most sold and sought after console in February and now, apparently, Mii’s are big business. Maybe I’m a far superior graphic artist than David Merrill, but I created my Mii in just a few minutes and it looks fantastic. David Merrill is possibly incompetent and/or has no thumbs because… Read More

  • Mio C320, C520 and C520T Widescreen GPS Units

    Mio makes, like, a lot of GPS devices of various shapes and sizes and just showed off three hot little numbers at CeBIT. There’s the C320, C520 and C520T, all of which have a 4.3-inch widescreen, touchscreen display and the latest Tele Atlas maps. Awesome. Mio’s also quite proud of its new split screen interface, which supposedly helps show more information on the screen than… Read More

  • No Vista Key? No Problem! Run Vista Up To A Year Without Activation

    Last month, while John was upstairs at his place baking a lovely fruitcake, I stole a copy of Windows Vista Ultimate from his basement. When I went to install it on my friend’s computer, everything was working great. Then after awhile, WGA kicked in and sort of tried to break Vista. Then it dawned on me that Johnnypants had already used the serial number that came with the box. Turns… Read More

  • Geometry Wars Was Supposed To Be FREE

    Microsoft screwed you over, lads. Bizarre (the creators of GW) recently told IGN it originally wanted to release Geometry Wars over XBL Arcade for free, but Microsoft wouldn’t allow them. Says Bizzare: Geometry Wars was really intended as a gift to hardcore gamers and we initially wanted to give the game away for free. When it became evident that we couldn’t do this, we said… Read More

  • LG To Host National Texting Championship

  • The AudioFile: Sonic Weapons, Justice League-Style


    Traveling through the Scottish countryside with fellow writer Todd Seavey, who has written a couple of storylines for Justice League comic books, I began to doze off. Todd had just told me one of his storylines, so I began daydreaming about the various members of the League in terms of how these heroes might make use of bleeding-edge sonic weaponry. After all, even superheroes can benefit… Read More

  • Laptop Horror Stories Entry #4: Rock and Crunch

    contest. It was a lovely afternoon as I was using my laptop while sitting in my recliner, when the phone rang. Cursing my forgetfulness, since I hadn’t grabbed my cordless phone off the charger earlier, I set my laptop down on the floor, closing it as I placed it there, and rushed to the phone. After my call was done, I came back and sat down – in my rocker-recliner – and… Read More

  • Kingmax Releases "World's Smallest" USB Drive, Largest Ego

    Every couple months or so, some company comes along and goes “Yo. We’ve got the smallest USB flash drive EVER!” Everyone yawns, we all nod our heads, and life goes on. But with Kingmax’s latest endeavor, the Super Stick, you kinda have to pay attention when the dimensions are, ah, 24 x 12.4 x 2.2mm. Yeah, that’s also known as really friggin’ small. This… Read More

  • WSJ Discovers Twitter, Buttocks in Dark Sans Flashlight

    Good morning, Farnsworth. Up bright and early, I see. I say, old chap, have you seen this latest computer system? It’s called Twittle, I believe. A, here it is in the Journal. Yes. Twitter. How much do we have available in the Mad Money fund? 45 million? Let’s put a pinch of that into this company. It seems the kids just love it. What does it do? Well, the children go to the… Read More

  • Transmit TV Signals Through Electrical Wires

    A mighty German company has figured out a way to transmit television signals through the same wires that handle electricity. Devolvo demoed its creation a CeBIT, though for now the technology can only transmit one TV signal at a time. The technology is still in its infancy (even though companies have had ways to share a network connection via the very same wires for a while now) and uses IP… Read More

  • A PC That Rolls Off the Tip of Your Desk

    This green orb contains a computer with a VIA EPIA Mini-ITX motherboard, 40GB hard drive and 200W power supply. Called the Ball PC System, the sphere opens up when the user needs access to the DVD drive. It comes in two colors: silver and green. The computer looks quite stylish, and I’m a bit amused that it’s suspended in a plastic base, mainly because it could potentially roll… Read More

  • Samsung UbiSync USB Monitor

    The Samsung USB monitor we told you about some time ago is at CeBIT and it’s way better than we thought. It was reported that only three to five peripherals would work from one USB port, but it’s been confirmed that six is actually the number. A Samsung rep stated that a setup with 2GB of RAM and a dual-core processor running at 2GHz could easily support six monitors. There was no… Read More

  • Cingular Unlocks Blackjack for Free

    Searching around on the Web, I’ve found a lot of sites that will charge you between $25 and $35 to unlock your Samsung i607 Blackjack. However, I came across a post describing how to get your phone unlocked for free via Cingular. I decided to try it, since I’m legitimately headed to Europe this summer and need to unlock my phone. I couldn’t find much on the Web about it, so… Read More

  • Streakr Search Makes Social Networks Bare All

    Vivek, over at Startup Squad, recently discovered a new social network and social networking meta search engine, Streakr. The main URL still says the site is coming soon. The new engine lets you search the profiles on the major networks (MySpace, Hi5, Bebo, and Facebook) as well at it’s own social network. It appears to be a hook to draw people into their main service, like Wink did… Read More

Then suddenly life decides to play bitch for a day. You wake up one morning, do your daily routine and then BAM! They are gone. No signs, no warnings. I can’t help but feel completely responsible for what happened. Life… Read More
