There’s a whole lot more available to you on your BB, but chances are you just don’t know where to go to find apps, right?

  • Wristwatch Remote Starts Aston Martin

    Remote start for a horseless carriage is old news these days, but when said remote start is strapped to your wrist then I start to pay attention.

  • Fujitsu's PalmSecure Mouse Identifies You By The Veins In Your Palm

    Another edition of man meeting machine. Fujitsu’s PalmSecure mouse reads the veins inside your palms, identifying you in the process.

  • Do Brains Like Mobile Phones?

    A recently published study exploring the effects of frequent mobile phone use on the brain claims long-term exposure slows brain functions.

  • UK Wants To Ban Energy-Thirsty Plasma TVs

    I remember when the United Kingdom used to run this stupid planet, now it’s all about banning anything that might offend anyone or, in this case, draws “too much” electricity. Yeah, OK. Apparently, if we want to trust the UK Sun, government leaders in the UK will propose a ban on electronic devices that suck up too much electricity, draining the lifestream from the planet or… Read More

  • Back To School 2007: The Best Cheap Laptops


    There is no more archetypal a small living space than a college dorm. Sure, us New Yorkers have to deal with closet-sized apartments, but next to the squalor of a freshman quad, crashing in the Lowest East Side is living in luxury. Such cramped conditions call for thin and light gadgets. When I was in college, I made the mistake of lugging a mini-tower to my dorm. Big mistake. A laptop not… Read More

  • Wes Anderson To Direct New AT&T Ads

    Photo Source: RushmoreAcademy.com If you’re in the entertainment industry, it goes without saying that having a loyal fan base is important. Take Wes Anderson, for instance. He’s the brains behind such wonderful films as Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums, The Life Aquatic, and Bottle Rocket. In fact, Rushmore is my favorite movie of all time. As my friend Mike says, “There are… Read More

  • Gaming Consoles Linked To Terrorist Attacks


    This is getting a tad bit out of control. Penitentiaries in the UK have banned Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo DS because officials believe the crooks in the slammer are smart enough to send out messages to other convicts and set up a terror attack. Just don’t let them get online. Doesn’t that solve that whole problem? Criminals shouldn’t have any privileges, but banning… Read More

  • Americans Wary of Mobile Banking

  • Atree UM10 Electronic Dictionary: Fantasic Looking From A To Z

    I swear, every piece of technology that comes out of Korea puts American efforts to shame. They’re playing chess, we’re playing checkers. Take this electronic dictionary from Atree, the UM10. First off, it looks like one of those slick-but-imaginary Yanko gadgets I so often write about. Except this is real, as real as Kanye’s new album is terrible. Way real. More than a… Read More

  • And Sony Said, Let There Be PSP Firmware 3.70

  • Logitech AudioHub: Speakers, USB Ports And Free Candy
