• Lenovo Has Linux On The Brain, Will Release Laptops With The OS This Year

    Lenovo will release laptops that have Linux instead of Windows later this year. I know, I know, this means the end of Microsoft as we know it… hellfire, dark clouds… Reuters, can’t be bothered to explain why Lenovo is making the switch, but it does go into great detail, in true reverse pyramid style, explaining how Dell announced a few months ago that it too was making the… Read More

    Elvis may have permanently left the building, but he never left some people’s hearts. If you’re one of those people, $300 will get you a creepy animatronic Elvis that “comes to life — checking you out and talking you up.” The King also sings eight of his classics and, if the mood hits you, you can sing along using the glittering microphone/remote control that… Read More

  • Facebook Embarrassment For Rudy Giuliani

    Another social networking embarrassment for a presidential candidate: Rudy Giuliani’s 17-year-old daughter Caroline supports Barack Obama for president over her father. Until this morning she was a member of the One Million Strong For Obama Facebook group, and lists her political views as “liberal.” Caroline removed herself from the group after Slate emailed her about it, but… Read More

  • ATC2K: Oregon Scientific Action Video Camera

    The ATC2K from Oregon Scientific is a great, low cost, mountable video camera for the daredevil out there. The waterproof video camera has 32MB of internal memory with an SD card slot supporting up to 2GB. The ATC2K works with a wide variety of video editing software, so I wouldn’t sweat over that detail. It virtually mounts to anything you can think of with its included hardware and… Read More

  • Next-Gen iMac Photos Surface


    Ooooh! Oooooh! Oooooooooh! Those shifty dudes over at Gizmodo got some pictures of the new iMac e-mailed to them this morning. Of course, the photos are blurry and low-rez, so they’re most likely fake. If this is the new iMac though, it looks pretty sweet. You be the judge. Hit the jump for a picture of the back

  • Apple Releases iPhone Tool

    I’m sick of everything iPhone-related, but this was way too funny to pass up. I wasn’t aware that Apple had released an official iPhone tool until I came across this gem on eBay and later on Flickr. This tool is only issued to Apple Support, but now you can own your very own, so you won’t have to suffer from seperation anxiety while your precious is being serviced. The… Read More

  • Buffalo DriveStation, MiniStation Now 30-60 Percent Faster Than Pretenders

    By all accounts, faster is better than slower, and bigger is better than smaller… so long as we’re talking about hard drives. Buffalo’s MiniStation and DriveStation hard drives will now most certainly be faster, about 30-60 percent faster than other such drives. Buffalo sped up the hard drives’ speed by using Turbo USB, a proprietary feature at controller level. (All… Read More

  • Nokia Signs On To Use Microsoft DRM

    You know what, I’m glad you got an iPhone. Although it’s been over-hyped and talked about for months, at least it doesn’t use Microsoft’s shitty PlayReady DRM. Nokia made the stupid move of signing on with Microsoft to use the DRM on its phones using the S40 and S60 interfaces. Nokia phones tend to be pretty feature-rich, especially in the media department. Introduce… Read More

  • New, Tighter Wii Remote Control Straps Spotted: Clips That Actually Lock In Place

    I bet Nintendo didn’t anticipate so many people losing control of their Wii remote controls, destroying TVs and ruining marriages in the process. To remedy that, the company has been releasing improved remote control wrist straps since the system’s launch. Another such Wii strap revision has appeared over the weekend, this one featuring even tighter clips. These clips lock rather… Read More

  • Id Software Hops Aboard The Steam Train


    Sup guys? Digital Trends didn’t expect it and neither did I. Seems Id Software has teamed up with rival Valve to release Id titles through the Steam distribution service.

You can get Commander Keen… Read More

  • Six Things That Suck About Each Next-Gen Console

    It’s no surprise that I think the Wii sucks. It’s a terrible console, but that’s OK. PS3 and Xbox 360 both have plenty of flaws to make them suck just as much as any Nintendo console. Pixel Perfect Productions compiled a list of what makes these consoles suck so bad. Notable mentions for the 360 include the dreaded “red ring of death”, Microsoft’s points… Read More

  • Disney Mobile Scores Two New Samsung Handsets

    Apparently, you’re not a cool company anymore unless you have your own MVNO. This must mean that Disney is the coolest around town, especially with the two new Samsung handsets it just picked up for Disney Mobile. The DM-S105 and DM-S110 are both basic CDMA clamshells with a VGA camera, Bluetooth, SMS, yadda yadda yadda. You get the deal. The DM-S110 comes in either pink or silver, so… Read More

  • When LEGO Meets Guitar Hero

    You can build just about anything out of LEGOs if you’re crafty enough. A dinosaur, a spaceship, or a working PS2 controller that’s in the shape of a Gibson Explorer guitar. In this case, it’s the latter and this LEGO guitar for Guitar Hero actually looks better than the standard guitar controllers. Shred, anyone? It works for PS2 and no, you can’t get one. But you can… Read More
