• Gordon Freeman Comes To Life

    What you are gazing your teary eyes at right now is a real-life Gordon Freeman. Well, not really, just a Gordon Freeman costume and a dude that looks EXACTLY like him. The Half-Life fan is actually Kevin, posting his very own duct tape made Gordon Freeman costume, along with the handy crowbar and killer crab. If you’ve ever played any of the Half-Life games, it’s pretty scary to… Read More

  • Gamestop: Preorders Are Over

    This is going to be short and simple, I don’t want to revisit my morning of sitting outside of Gamestop and having the manager say, “Sorry, we’re out,” when I was next. Anyways, all 3,600 Gamestop stores are sold out of PS3 preorders and have been sold out since 2:00 PM today, central time. The max number of preorders each Gamestop had was 16, and only 2 of them… Read More

  • PSP Extra Analog Stick Mod

    I think there’s enough evidence out there to officially say that the PSP isn’t the best portable option for a gamer. We’ve got a few titles coming up including Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops, but we all know it isn’t going to save the Playstation Portable. However, the lack of good games weren’t the only obstacle for the PSP. The portable console also faced… Read More

  • Sprint Loophole Allows for Early Exits

    If you read the fine-print of your iron-clad Sprint wireless service contract, you’ll note a small clause that states that if Sprint makes a “material change” to your service, then you can exit the contract without paying any penalties. That’s fairly common boilerplate talk in these sorts of contracts, though now we’re guessing Sprint had wished it’d thought… Read More

  • Palm to Announce New Treo Thursday at Digital Life

    Palm today announced that it will be announcing (it keeps announcing when it’s going to make announcements, doesn’t it?) a new Treo at Digital Life in New York on Thursday. We’ll bet our bagel it’s the 680p for Cingular. Palm will also be offering a hands-on demonstration of the new Treo. Our intrepid reporters will be there to give you live coverage, so if… Read More

  • Samsung Intros SSD-Based Notebook

    Samsung goodness just keeps rolling along. In Korea, the manufacturer of all things slick has announced it’s going to put Solid State Drive notebooks into production, and already have the specs of one on its Korean website. For those not in the know, SSD (Solid State Disk) notebooks run the operating system out of NAND RAM, the same memory that your iPod Nano or digital camera uses. Read More

  • Zoho Virtual Office Launching Tomorrow; Racing Google to Market

    Online productivity company Zoho is finally bringing all its various services together into one offering with the release of the Zoho Virtual Office at tomorrow’s Office 2.0 conference. Virtual Office, or ZohoX, will integrate most of the 10+ Zoho services already available and add several more like Webmail and calendaring. The whole thing will be unveiled on Wednesday but there’s… Read More

  • It's a White (Chocolate) Xmas for Verizon

    Verizon is set to give us something to go with our Thanksgiving dinners: White Chocolate. There have been colored Chocolates before, but not from an American carrier (which makes sense, as VZN is the only one around these parts currently). The features should remain the same, and chances are it’ll have its speakerphone enabled out of the box, so you won’t have to take it in for a… Read More

  • Wireless Audio from Your USB Port to Your Stereo, on the Cheap

    Onkyo has submitted information about a sneaky new set top box and matching wireless USB device (not Wireless USB, the forthcoming new standard) that streams audio to your stereo via your PC’s USB port. It works in the 2.4GHz frequency (like your cordless phone) to deliver the music to your auxiliary in, but it’s not known what standard (if any) it uses to do this. Being that it… Read More

  • Revver: The Newest British Comedy

    User created video sharing site Revver has landed an intriguing partnership with a new UK TV station called FameTV. Revver users will be able to opt-in for TV broadcast and those selected will be shown on FameTV. Viewers will vote for their favorites by SMS and revenue sent to Revver will be split 50/50 with the video publishers. This is the kind of partnership we’ve seen fomenting… Read More

  • Target Gets Cranky with Apple's iTunes Movies

    Target is joining Wal-Mart in getting uppity with Apple about the Cupertino company’s pricing of movies it sells via the iTunes music store. Apple sells individual movies for roughly 8% lower than Wal-Mart and Target, which undercuts them in a market where brick and mortar stores dominate. Apple has been in talks with Wal-Mart on a way to partner the companies to ease the impact on… Read More

  • Lala Leverages Internet Radio for CD Swapping, Sales

    In a bizarre amalgamation of virtual and physical business, the dying independent terrestrial turned internet radio station WOXY is being revived by online CD swapping service Lala. Lala is tangible evidence that online music doesn’t have to kill the CD industry. At first I was skeptical, but after spending more time on the site I think this radio strategy is very smart. See also… Read More

  • Guitar Hero 2 Track List

    Guitar Hero 2, coming for Playstation 2 on November 7 and the Xbox 360 in Spring 2007, has finally released its amazing track list. This list is bigger, heavier and will seriously reach a wider range of gamers than before. I remember playing Guitar Hero for countless hours thinking, “When are we going to rock out to some serious Motley Crue?” My prayers have finally been answered. Read More

  • SHOCK! Case for Nintendo DS

    The SHOCK! case is essentially a complete overhaul of the Nintendo DS Lite housing. It comes in a variety of colors, including clear (although I guess clear isn’t technically a color, but yea you get the point), so, like Raj, you can color coordinate to your hear’s content. More importantly though, the SHOCK! case provides an update to the brittle hinge found on the DS Lite. There… Read More

  • Sony NW-S203F MP3 Playing Pedometer Reviewed

    The vial-like Sony NW-S203F is notable not only because it looks like a marital-aid, it also comes with a pedometer. That’s right, you can use its 1GB for listening to music as you run, but you can also use it for tracking how well you ran as well. If you’re a blogger like us, not very well. The controls work by twisting the knob right or left, and slid up or down into three positions. Read More

  • Overflow 2.0 is a clean, simple launcher

    Version 2.0 of the Mac launcher Overflow was released today and I really like it. Launchers are supposed to help balance the need to have files and applications easy to access on one hand and the need for your computer to stay organized on the other. I find Quicksilver, the most popular Mac launcher, more trouble than it’s worth for my needs. Overflow is less reliant on keystrokes for… Read More

  • Helios H4000 Upscaling HD DVD Player

    Not only is this Helios player thin, light, and cheap at only $169, it can upscale to 1080p using HDMI and component, or 1080i using projectors (VGA). If watching your Se7en DVDs in high definition wasn’t enough to get you going, how about being able to play back DivX, XviD, MPEG1, MPEG, MPEG4, SVCD, VCD and HDCDs all from any disc you throw in there? It’s also NTSC and PAL… Read More

  • LED Rat Throwie

    I think there are a few signs of the coming apocalypse — nukes in North Korea, Katie Couric, and now this. This is a rat throwie that sticks to any metal surface and has two glowing eyes. Best of all? It’s made from a real rat, and you can make one for yourself with only some rats, some magnets, and a sense that you are far superior to anything on this earth and that it puts the… Read More

  • GameStop and EBGames Launch PC Download Store

    , and, uh, that’s about all the good ones they have so far. The rest are either cheap bargain-bin games or games that are 3 or 4 years old. We’re glad to see game vendors take online distribution seriously, and would really like it if most games were available to purchase online. Besides saving time and money it takes to drive out to Best Buy, it would really be great to be able… Read More
