The new audio capabilities that are included in Microsoft’s latest OS highlight MS’s push even further into your living room, and from what… Read More

  • Sony-Ericsson W880i: Halloween Edition

    We’ve heard so much about the Sony-Ericsson W880i over the past week that we’re starting to think it might jump out of the shadows and pounce at any moment. Either way, here’s another prototype version in black and orange. It’ll still have the same 2MP camera, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 2.0, HSDPA, and other great features that the original W880i we saw comes with. Hit the… Read More

  • Breastmilk: The Other White Milk

    I rarely get caught up in quixotic Internet causes, but this is too good to pass up. It includes three things close to my heart: breasts and the milk therein, big pork, and, for some additional gadget-tasticness, you could add in some robot breast pumps or something. Plus this poor lady is from Columbus, my home town, so rock and roll. ANYWAY, she is a lactivist. Fair enough. Our son was… Read More

  • Wii OS Video Hits The Net

    Of course when anything related to the Nintendo Wii comes out, it’s always good in the eyes of rabid fanboys. So this pseudo-fake “Wii OS” shouldn’t be overlooked at all. In a six-minute-long video, a gentleman who sounds about 13 years old goes on to show us his amazing GUI which resembles that of the Wii. He also shows off an included music player he added and how his… Read More

  • Digg Removes List of Top Users

    In a long blog post, Digg founder Kevin Rose explains why they’re removed their list of top users, who were ranked based on how many stories they’ve been able to promote to the home page. Since seven of the nine paragraphs of the post talk about the steps Digg has taken to fight spam and gaming of their system, it is reasonable to conclude that this is yet another step in that… Read More

Just when I was preparing to wrap up for the night I noticed that we were right on the cusp of a milestone. This… Read More

In addition to storing your iPod Nano is a small mesh pouch, the Hatphones cap has headphones integrated within. I’m a big fan of not having wires bounce around when I run or cycle, but I wonder how comfortable it’d be having my Nano stuck to my head. Unless Nike has figured out some really… Read More

    I’m a big fan of Canon cameras (I use an EOS-30D) and this appears to be the biggest thing they have coming: the EOS-1Ds Mark III. Featuring 22-megapixels of oh so unnecessary picturing takin’ beauty, The Mark III is set to oust the Mark II as the top rig at Canon camp.

    With the news breaking about Microsoft responding to an iPhone announcement with a possible Zune Cell Phone, we wondered what feature they’d most want to have. One of the most unique elements of the Zune is its ability to share music wirelessly and socially. “Hey, while I have you on the phone, do you want to hear that new Shins song?
