  • iPhone? Who Cares?

    We’ll admit the iPhone wasn’t much of a surprise and apparently numerous companies were prepared to steal Apple’s thunder with their own product announcements. One upcoming handset that might make many reconsider joining the iPhone crowd is the new Motorola Z6 music phone, which has been optimized to operate with MTV’s Urge music store. The quad-band GSM EDGE slider runs… Read More

  • Do Older People Really Need Separate Internet Sites?

    Building specialized websites and services for the older crowd has been popular lately. First we had Eons, the social network for people over 50. Founder Jeff Taylor is too young, at 45, to use his own site. Perhaps being out of touch with his target demographic has been what’s led Eons to mediocrity (Alexa, Compete) since launch. Next we had Presto, a combination printer (made by HP)… Read More

  • Bloops: Cisco Sues Apple

    Some interesting news out of Cisco today: Cisco today announced that it has filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California against Apple, Inc., seeking to prevent Apple from infringing upon and deliberately copying and using Cisco’s registered iPhone trademark. Will it effect the Cupertino giant? Absolutely not. But it makes for a nice downtick… Read More

  • Headplay


    Last night I had a chance to checkout a new technology that has been getting a lot of hype around here. Headplay is a display headset that gives a more immersive visual experience. My experience with it was relatively positive given the short time I had the product. I had a bit of trouble adjusting it adequately to my field of vision, but I have a problem with one of my eyes that probably… Read More

  • Lensbabies: Lenses Like Babies

    Every once in a while we get lucky enough to see an actually cool product. This is the Lensbaby, an odd lens that allows you to create selective focus images, meaning you can “sharpen up” on spot on a scene leave the rest in sporty blur. This would have been great for taking action shots on the floor, but we didn’t get a chance to try it on our gear.

  • Sennheiser PXC 450 Noise-Canceling Headphones


    I have a bit of a love affair with Sennheiser. Back in my gaming days I used a pair of HD-570s. They completely changed my game. As far as I know, Sennheisers are still the dominate headphones used amongst gamers. Sennheiser is showing off a new pair of noise-canceling headphones at CES that could be useful to gamers and commuters alike. In my demo of the product, I was impressed by how… Read More

  • Pogue, Blam Play with iPhone, Pee a Little

    What “feels amazing in your hand,” is “not too slick or too rough, or that shows grease and fingerprints too much,” has an incredible web browsing experience, and is “dark and contrasty.” No, it’s not a smoked-glass dildo and a session on MILFhunter.com. It’s the iPhone. David Pogue AND Gizmodo’s Brian Lam both got to fondle the… Read More

  • Apple iPhone FAQ

  • It's Official – eBay is Buying StubHub For $310 million

    Update: Press release is here. It is surprisingly brief, reinforcing the rumor that eBay hastily accelerated the announcement due to the rumors. It looks like the rumors forced eBay’s hand and they are announcing the deal earlier than expected – they are acquiring San Francisco-based StubHub for $285 million plus the cash on StubHub’s books, which is about $25 million. The… Read More
