• Yahoo! Go for WinMo


    Yahoo! Go for Mobile is now available — in gamma version — for Windows Mobile devices. This version includes everything the Symbian folks are already crowing about including email, oneSearch (Yahoo’s mobile search product), photo sharing, and RSS/news ticker-type feeds. Check Yahoo’s mobile site for more information on compatibility but if it runs WinMo, it probably… Read More

  • Sprint EX720: My New BFF


    My intention was to review the Sprint EX720 EV-DO Rev A ExpressCard as a comparison with the Merlin XU870 HSDPA ExpressCard. Both cards are manufactured by Novatel, so the playing field is leveled. Couple that with the fact that I’m traveling all over the States for the next several weeks, and I think we’ll have the purest comparison possible. I still intend to do that, but… Read More

  • Sharpcast Expands Sync Platform With Photos v1.0

    If you work or play from multiple computing devices – laptops, desktops and/or mobile phones, Sharpcast can be a killer productivity tool and an excellent way of keeping all kinds of files syncronized. In a very basic sense, it’s like IMAP for all your files. Sharpcast came out of beta and released a 1.0 version of their photo synchronization application today. Sharpcast Photos… Read More

  • Apple iLaunch (humor)

    In a jab at Apple CEO Steve Jobs’ ability to capture the world’s attention every time he announces a new product, the Onion reports the introduction of the new Apple iLaunch in an article titled “Apple Unveils New Product-Unveiling Product.” The iLaunch is a product that will “revolutionize the process of unveiling new products throughout the world.” This is… Read More

  • Google Desktop 5 Released: Search Improved

    The beta release of Google Desktop 5 was just announced on the main Google blog as well as the Desktop blog. A complete overview of the new and existing Desktop features is here. The most important change is that users now have the ability to preview files in search results directly in the application or browser, which is a time saver. They’ve also upgraded security and redesigned the… Read More

  • The Much Needed Beer Calculator

    If you want to know exactly how many kegs of beer, pounds of ice and number of cups you need to get everyone at your party hammered, give Kegulator a whirl. Tell it how many guests you are having, use their Ajax slider to set how drunk everyone will get, and the site will spit out the supplies necessary to achieve your goal. If you’re Canadian, use Beer Hunter afterwards to figure out… Read More

  • Google Answers to Rise From Dead?

    Yahoo Answers is the undisputed leader in the Q&A space, vanquishing Google Answers to the DeadPool late in 2006. But now, a number of researchers who previously worked on Google Answers have started their own new service: Uclue. The team has also posted on the TechCrunch Forums looking for people to help out with the project. Like Google Answers, people asking questions are charged. The… Read More

  • Treo 680: Now Featuring More Boring

    or Motorola, we also get news that the popular Treo 680 is now available sans camera. Why would anybody want a Treo without a camera? Because it’s safer in some corporate environments, that’s why. In many corporate settings, like, say, the RIAA, the ability to surreptitiously snap and send photos is a nightmare that keeps security-minded types up at night. But with the modern… Read More

  • GDC 2007 Day 2: Planted in the Press Room


    The second day of GDC is underway and there are panels galore. None of which are particularly relevant to the CG shtick. I’ve planted myself in the press room and am attempting to update the site as the server smokes and flames and sputters toward oblivion after getting two front page diggs. My highlights yesterday were small, but interesting. There is little in the way of gadget… Read More

  • iSoundSpa iPod Dock: Wake Up to Sounds of the Ocean

    iSoundSpa represents the next evolution of iPod docks, that is, the unholy combination of an iPod dock and an alarm clock. Yes, it will charge your iPod while it’s plugged in. Yes, it has a built-in radio. No, it won’t dismantle the Taliban. It does, however, have six “soothing” nature songs that you can wake yourself up to, including “ocean” and… Read More

  • Anti-Terrorism Weapon Doesn't Kill, Makes You Puke

    Who cares about CeBit, GDC, PMA and CTIA when this year’s Navy Opportunity Forum for small businesses has weapons that shoot invisible wall-penetrating beams that make people dizzy and puke? My flight and hotel reservations are booked! Read More

  • South Park’s Good Times in HD


    While I’m never going to complain about South Park, the animated series does seem to be an odd choice for an HD download on the Xbox Live service. While typically hilarious, it isn’t exactly like the show is known for the most stunning graphics, but today fans will get to download a true classic of an episode, and possibly one of the best looking ones too. The fun-packed… Read More

  • Wii Want Our Wii


    Wii Line Circa Summer 2006. Now it’s worse. Love it or hate it, the Wii is the most popular console out right now and Nintendo has some ‘splaining to do. The Wii launched last year yet people still have to line up outside Best Buy for hours and sell their kidneys to get this bundle of fun. Kotaku threatens violence while Nintendo America’s Reggie Fils-Aime says: We work with… Read More

  • What's New in iTunes 7.1?


    iLounge has a great, in-depth examination of iTunes 7.1 and all of its improvements/changes. Most interesting is the full-screen cover-flow view that offers a bit of Front Row goodness without much overhead. Lock down the keyboard on that and you’ve got a great little jukebox application. They also added Apple TV support — shipping March 20, it seems, according to the Apple… Read More

  • Tuneview: See What's On Your iPod From Across The Room

    Tuneview is a great new way to control your iPod from just about anywhere in your home (sort of). If you’re like me, then your iPod goes with you everywhere. I feel weird boppin’ around the house with my headphones in, but I hate when Britney’s album comes on and my roommates are home, it’s embarrassing. The Tuneview has an LCD that enables you to remotely view the… Read More

  • Sprint EX720 EV-DO In The Wild

    Vince from Slashgear has his hands on the Sprint EX720 and I couldn’t be more jealous. The newest Rev. A broadband card makes my s620 comparable to a slug. Apple has already released the software drivers to support this card so it’s a sure hit with Apple owners. The only downside to Sprint mobile broadband cards is the lack of Mac support. You have to activate the card on a… Read More
