• How Not to Get Ripped Off on Craigslist, eBay

    On the weekends, I have a hobby of fixing broken iPods. Usually they just need a little reset love or some hard disk repairs and they’re good as new. One place I find these busted iPods is Craigslist. Over the weekend, I noticed a post for a cheap, used iPod Nano at $54. That’s a fairly low price for even a first-gen Nano, so I figured it must be broken or missing parts. I thought… Read More

  • Cerwin-Vega CVHD: My My, What Big Speakers You Have

    What’s big, loud and looks like it belongs in the back of a 1987 Camaro IROC-Z? The new Cerwin-Vega CVHD home entertainment system, which according to the company, takes “its performance and visual cues from experience gleaned by the company’s involvement in professional audio.” The idea behind the set is that pro studios don’t use different size/shapes of… Read More

  • Coffee-Modding Wakes Up

    We’re all about modding your stuff here at the CG, from computer cases to cell phone unlock codes and everything in between.

  • Another Social Networking Video Site

    VodPod comes out of “private alpha” into beta mode today. It’s a social networking video sharing site and right about now you’re thinking, ‘Why do we need another YouTube?” Well, if YouTube becomes increasingly commercial, as it appears it will be, then user-generated video will need a new home. VodPod is heavily designed around social networking. Have a… Read More

  • Britney Owns Yahoo Searches…Again

    Why are you people searching for Britney Spears!? She is hardly the eye candy she once was so I just don’t understand how she has topped Yahoo’s most popular search terms for the fifth time in six years but is appears that the flashing, divorcing baby mama has. Tonight at 9 p.m. PST, Yahoo will release their most popular search terms of 2006. In the top five are Britney, WWE… Read More

  • Cingular Preps Nokia N75 for Take-off

    to launching on Cingular. As a member of Nokia’s N-series, the N75 is not to be called a phone. No, it’s a multimedia computer. Whatevs, Nokes. It does mark a decent entry to Cingular’s high-end line-up, boasting Symbian Series 60, UMTS 3G connectivity, a 2-megapixel cam, microSD, and stereo Bluetooth. It has external MP3 playback control buttons, so Cingular will brand it as… Read More

  • Antec Nine Hundred: My My, What Big Fans You Have


    Those crappy little 90mm fans cooling your desktop just aren’t cutting it? Antec’s Nine Hundred “ultimate gamer case” sports three, 120mm fans with mounts for more, and a 200mm top-mounted fan. If you’ve never seen a 200mm fan in a case, it’s impressively large. To the point where you might feel the owner is over-compensating for other shortcomings. Read More

  • Final Sound 300i Speakers


    So these speakers got announced last month, but we’re just hearing about them. From Final Sound comes the 300i series speakers. What sets these speakers apart are their surprising dimensions. Measure 4-feet tall and just 1-inch thick, the speakers take up hardly any space at all. They’re not available yet, but the speakers are being highlighted at CES this January. We’ll be… Read More

  • Reflections on MediaTech

    At the risk of repeating anything Sam may have already said about MediaTech last week, here’s my take on it. With the perspective of a few days under my belt, I can see that the MediaTech 2.006: Where Media And Technology Collide event last Thursday was a pretty damn good event. Rarely do venture capitalists, entrepreneurs and media companies get together in one space and talk the same… Read More

  • Comedy Central Shows Appear On IFilm


    If you were disappointed about Comedy Central demanding YouTube pull all clips of “The Daily Show” and “Colbert Report” from its site, rejoice. Viacom-owned iFilm.com (a recent acquisition) is now posting three-minute clips of the shows, totaling up to most if not all of the entire show that aired. And it’s posting them the day after the episodes originally air. Read More

  • The week when London partied … Paris next.

    Last week was a great week for catching up with a few people. Wednesday I caught up with Euan Semple, until then I had resisted Twitter but sadly I have been drawn into this backchannel web craze. Thursday was Media Tech 2006. Congratulations to Richard Youngman from Library House for his hard work in getting the event together. One of the highlights for me was the VC panel session with… Read More

  • Belkin Finally Dumps Cable-Free USB Hub On The Market


    Though I won’t believe it until it’s sitting in front of me on my desk (I’ve seen prototypes of it for a long time now), Belkin has announced that its wireless USB hub will be available for purchase by mid-December in the US. The $199 four-port hub uses Ultra-Wideband (UWB) via a Wisair chipset to wirelessly send data from your computer to your peripherals at up to USB… Read More

  • Wii Multiplayer In Q2 2007


    Nintendo of America’s top guy Reggie Fils-Aime stated in an interview that online Wii gaming won’t be available until Q2 2007. He implied that the first of the multiplayer enabled games will start to drop in March and that there should be something of an onslaught following that. I’m not really sure how I feel about this. Six months after launch seems like a particularly… Read More

  • TiVoToGo Gets Cracked, DRM Stripped. TV Actually Set Free?


    I’m not sure what TiVo’s excuse is for not providing non-Windows users, including myself, access to TiVoToGo features. Probably the same one I get from every other company that doesn’t provide Mac/Linux support: There just aren’t enough users. But it’s that kind of attitude that drives people to do things like break DRM. PVRWire has a report of a project… Read More

  • Razr V3xx Passes FCC Gauntlet


    Well if you’re the one person out there who hasn’t yet begun to find the Motorola’s Razr a lackluster device, then you’re in luck. The V3xx has been approved by the FCC for Cingular. It is a quad-band GSM/EDGE phone with 850/1900 WCDMA. The V3xx also includes a 1.3-megapixel camera, MicroSD, stereo Bluetooth and support for streaming audio and video. Nothing to see… Read More

  • Klever Kutter: An End to Wrap Rage?

    If you’ve ever found yourself with bloody fingers clenching scissors and a package that refuses to open, then take a look at the Klever Kutter. It uses non-exposed razor blades and slice unwilling packages any way you want. They’re 1.99 each, but if you buy 500+ you can get them for $1.59 a piece. Whatta deal!

  • Keyspan's Color iPod Remote, TuneView, Ships


    This is the first time I’ve seen an iPod dock combined with a remote with a color screen that gives you full access over your iPod’s library. Which is cool, especially if you’ve connected this little wonder to your TV/home-entertainment system. And it’s now shipping so you can pick one up for the holidays. Keyspan’s TuneView dock and remote communicate via a… Read More
