  • Alpine's Monster iPod Car Deck Hits the Road

    I have an iPod-compatible Alpine deck in my Kia, and I couldn’t live without it.

Not only can the deck connect to your iPod via its dock port, but it can control it as well. Information… Read More

  • Plasma Light: Way Cool Tesla Device for a Lamp

    If we had one of these as a kid, we would have had an easier time staying in school and off the hard drugs. It’s the Plasma Light Bulb, a scaled-down version of that freaky sci-fi plasma globe that your rich, smarter friend’s dad had in his den. You know, the room you guys weren’t allowed into with the liquor and porn. And plasma globes. We’re guessing these things… Read More

  • Yahoo Launches Digg-Like Suggestion Site

    Yahoo is taking some criticism for launching a site that includes a Digg-like voting feature earlier today. The main criticism is coming from Digg users, who can sometimes stop fighting long enough to band together into a very angry mob. But a few bloggers are adding their own fuel as well. I don’t have any problem with what Yahoo did. First, Yahoo credited Digg in a blog post announcing… Read More

  • Dude, 3GSM is Cashed

    I’m wrapping up coverage here at the show and thought it might be nice to look back at everything I’ve seen. The show is about GSM — a strange focus, obviously — but there is enough coolness here to fill a few phone shops.

  • T-Mobile Scoring Push Mail, 3G

    “Push” e-mail has a high demand It seems T-Mobile’s International CEO Hamid Akhavan is claiming that T-Mobile will offer push email to consumers, as well as 3G services in 2007.

  • German Cryptophones: Securephones, not Smartphones

    or Wizard smartphones, utilize AES 256 and Twofish encryption to make sure that your voice calls are secure as possible. These phones aren’t smartphones, though.
