  • Fifteen Dollar MP3 Player

    This $15 MP3 player is great for kids who aren’t quite old enough to trust with a $300 iPod. The player has 10 hours of playback from its AAA battery, supports SD/MMC cards and has simple play/forward/back/volume controls on the side. There’s not much else to speak of in terms of features, but for $15, nobody’s expecting groundbreaking technology. Product Page [USB Geeks via… Read More

  • Scala Rider Bluetooth Helmet Headset For Motorcyclists

    Normal Bluetooth headsets don’t really work on motorcycles—a few friends of mine have tried. This Scala Rider headset was made especially for riders, with its boom mic and thinner body so it doesn’t get in the way of the helmet. The headset clamps into the helmet itself, the speaker goes into your ear, and the boom mic goes in front of your face. What did tech digest think… Read More

  • Sony Finally Shipping 50GB Dual Layer Blu-Ray Recordables

    It’s been a bumpy ride on the Blu-ray road, but Sony’s finally managed to get their dual layer writable Blu-ray discs to market. Each disc is around $48, which at a dollars-to-gigabyte ratio, loses to DVD recordables right now. That should change within a few years, but the meantime, DVD is still the champion for thrifty burners. Those thinking of using these Blu-ray discs for… Read More

  • myKeyO Wireless, Backlit Keyboard Organizer

    The myKeyO Keyboard Organizer gets a Web 2.0 update with a palm-rest, backlight and wireless connectivity. It still retails all those little middle-school-desk-like storage compartments underneath for holding your pencils, keys and scissors; but unlike the old one, doesn’t look like it’s from 1995. The good news is that it’s only 1/10 of an inch thicker than a regular… Read More

  • Google Circles Wagons, Will Not Launch Nationwide Wi-Fi

    It appears that Google’s plans for world domination are currently on hold as they’ve neglected to bid for any of the open Wi-Fi contracts nationwide. They will offer free Wi-Fi in Mountain View – so their cyborg monkey army can get messages from the mothership – and may launch in San Francisco in partnership with Earthlink, but they’re not planning unwiring any… Read More

  • Naneu Pro Military-Ops Sierra Review

    While “carrying an SLR and laptop” aren’t usually considered military ops, at least according to the marine I know (Hi Chris!), the Naneu Pro Sierra bag is quite an original. Designed to hold both a camera and a laptop, the bag is compact and well-proportioned, allowing a 12-inch Powerbook and my Rebel XT to cohabitate like college virgins discovering the first taste… Read More

  • Carbon Fiber Hats

    Carbon fiber is the new, ummmmm…. chrome? These hats look like they’ve go great with Crash Override’s outfit while he hacks the Gibson and smooches an elfin Acid Burn [Link NSFW]. The hats are made by Ginity and are purported to mix Formula 1 materials with downtown street stylee, but I’ll believe it when I see it on someone’s head. Until then, feast your eyes on… Read More

  • Nike+iPod Caseling

    Just got the Nike+iPod setup so I can time my runs to the toilet and back and I discovered that you essentially HAVE to have the Nike shoes to go with the kit and I haven’t worn Nike to run in years and probably won’t spring for a pair. What’s a poor boy to do? He can buy this tiny case from Marware. It just kind of hangs out on your shoe and costs about $10. I suspect… Read More
