• TruAudio BadBoy Speakers: A Misnomer, Actally Good

    TruAudio has some speakers, right, and the speakers are bad. Not bad in the widely accepted meaning of the word bad, but in the “oh look, I’m cool and use bad to mean good” sense. Anyhoo, the company’s “BadBoy” in-wall speakers, available in black or white, have a 1-inch tweeter (which is typical for the type) and four-layer voice coils. I guess… Read More

  • 3G iPhone To Be Announced Today?

    No, I’m not on crack, but apparently the Brits seem to be. According to T3, the BBC will witness the UK launch of the 3G iPhone. They’re even going as far as claiming the iPhone Dos will be announced in an hour or so. This is certainly surprising and I’ll surely be glued to my seat. Maybe the rumors are true. iPhone 2 today [T3] Read More

  • Terminator 2 Goggles From Russian Artists

    Because these dudes are Russian, I can’t make out too much of the exact specifics of this device, but from what I gather, the goggles throw a filter on what the camera sees and projects it to the user. You can see the world as the Terminator, Predator, and Neo once have. Very cool set of goggles. Watch the video for a better understanding; I tried to embed the clip, but it… Read More

  • Nintendo Suit Says 360 Users Drive Like 'This', Wii Users Drive Like 'That'

    I’m not even joking when I say that my Western European Politics (it’s a lot less fancy than it sounds, believe you me) professor yesterday said the “U.S. is from Mars and Europe is from Venus” as it relates to democracy in both places. Going with the same “you’re from X, I’m from Y” motif, Nintendo suit George Harrison said Consider three… Read More

  • Mobile Video not always Cellular Video

In-Stat’s report could portend another… Read More

  • The Junior Gym

    Working out at an early age is very important, especially with the rising obesity rate in this country. I’m not saying you should put Creatine in your kid’s kool-aid, but really I am. How else is he going to bench 25-pounds? I mean take for example John Biggs, our lovable EIC. Now as much as everyone loves a fun guy like John, this is what happens when you don’t use the… Read More

  • Das Audiophile: Burmester Classic Line CD Player 061

  • LG Upgrades Super Blu, Drops The Price


    BH100, Super Blu LG is playing coy when it comes to the format wars when they damn well know that ________ will win. Pick a side, LG.

  • The Beat Goes On: Pointy Bras Abound?

    It’s a safe bet that the press covering today’s Apple event and all the fanboys are expecting The Beatles catalogue to be released onto iTunes considering the fact that the invitation is dubbed “The Beat Goes On”.

  • Can Google Do What Amazon Couldn't? The Search For Steve Fossett In The Nevada Desert

    When computer scientist Jim Gray was lost at sea earlier this year, Amazon stepped in to help. They arranged for a satellite sweep of the area and stored the images on their S3 storage service. They then created a task on their Mechanical Turk service to allow volunteers to scan the images to look for the boat. Thousands of people joined the search, but he was never found. Now Steve Fossett, a… Read More

  • Worthwhile: Forty Playable PS3 Games At TGS

The 100,000 square-foot center will be the hub for all of Virgin Galactic’s operations involving space travel and flight and will cost about $31 million total to build.

  • Design This: Messiah PS3 Remote

    Having a DVD remote for your Playstation system is like having a rich stepfather. Sometimes it’s useful, but overall it’s a waste.

You can flip it open like a Samsung Blast to reveal a set of function buttons. The… Read More

  • Business 2.0 Is No More: Time, Inc. Killed It

    October’s issue of Business 2.0 will be the last. Please, one moment of silence for the influential publication. OK! It turns out that the mag’s publisher, Time, Inc., decided not to sell it to other publishers—Mansueto Ventures, which publishes Fast Company, included—but rather shut her down. Very nice of them. Time will reassign some of the higher up editors to Fortune… Read More
