  • Ypsilon Office Chair

    The boys at Gadgetizer wrote in about a scoop on a new product that could start turning up in swank offices everywhere. The Ypsilon Office Chair—I assume it’s pronounced “Epsilon,” but I feel compelled to say “Yip-silon”—offers 10 adjustable settings including height, depth and pressure for the seat, backrest and headrest. In addition to its… Read More

  • Neoware Thin Client Laptops: What Hard drive?

    Hard drives are for suckers. Ok, maybe not, but they are easily compromised should your laptop be stolen or lost. While for most of us it’s not a big deal for some thief to find our “ScarJo_Naked_mov.avi” files, it’s something large corporations live and die by. The loss of laptops containing sensitive data is in the news from time to time, and, as usual, you… Read More

  • Lumines Live Coming To Xbox Arcade Tomorrow

    Finally, Lumines Live is going to be available for Xbox 360 users to download and play tomorrow. Being a big fan of the PSP and Mobile version of Lumines, I can’t wait to play it on Xbox 360. The new features include new music, new video content, 12 different skins, online multiplayer and leaderboards. If you’re lusting to play Lumines because you’ve never played it before… Read More

  • Nielsen To Bring Market Ratings to Video Games

    You’ve heard of Nielsen Families, but now it’s your chance to become a Nielsen Nerd. The media marketing research group, who uses set-top boxes to see what Americans are and aren’t watching, is launching a new service that will compile similar metrics on video game usage. In theory, this data could be used to determine pricing on advertising within video games. As these… Read More

  • Samsung's Ultra-Thin TV

    With Samsung, thin is in. Its phones continue to get thinner, but yet they deny any problem. Typical. Now it’s taking its anorexic philosophy to the world of television with its new AMOLED series flat panels. By using a hybrid of OLED and active matrix LCD technologies, the new screens eliminate the need for a backlight, meaning the largest (and heaviest) part of the screen is gone. Read More

  • Gears of War Banned In Germany

    The highly anticipated Xbox 360 game Gears of War has officially been banned in Germany. The USK (Germany’s ESRB), has decided that the game is too violent for the German market. Epic and Microsoft both stated that changing the game to be any less violent would cause it too lose many of its essential gameplay elements. I have to agree with Microsoft on this one, Gears of War is a… Read More

    Ultra Products out of Fletcher, Ohio has unveiled a new line of computer peripherals that are made to be stacked atop each other, like some sort of hi-tech Legos.

Each of these indicators can be adjusted to respond to a slew of variables. The Device is made of handcrafted cherry wood and connects to a PC via a 3′ USB cable. No word yet on pricing or availability. Process… Read More

  • Sony's New 4k Projector Comes Up Short


    We’re all about 4k, the promised Utopian resolution of the near ultra-hi-def future. At display sizes around 292-inches at 96DPI, you really won’t need anything much larger (yeah, right). Sony, lovers of this next-gen technology, has just dropped a new projector for the 4k crowd, using its new SXRD (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display, or Voodoo to us), giving it a resolution of 4,096… Read More

  • Spike the Vote: Another Cancer Aimed at Digg

    A link on the front page of Digg means tens of thousands of visitors to your site, so it’s no surprise that people are setting up systems to game it. The newest attempt is called Spike the Vote. It’s easy to wag your finger at them and say “shame on you,” but Digg is going to have to deal with threats like this if the content on its front page is going to mean… Read More

  • LG Adds Leather to New TV Phones

    <img src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/TV. You read that correctly. We like the LG checker keypad thing it's been doing, and the fact that the phone comes wrapped in your choice of leather coverings, complete with pockets and other wallety things. The phone itself is pretty nice too, using a DMB tuner to pick up that fancy digital TV they have all over Korea. Read More

  • Panasonic Plays Russian Nesting Dolls with microSD Cards

    We’ve got a cellphone, a GPS unit, and a Palm, all of which use different sized SD cards. The phone uses microSD, the GPS unit, which has a big screen for photo playback, uses miniSD, and the Palm uses standard SD. Even though they’re all SD, you can’t share them without buying fancy adapters. Panasonic has solved our problem by packaging its new microSD cards with both a… Read More

  • Lots More Of Mii To Go Around

    Remember when I said that the Mii avatar creation on the Wii would provide endless hours of fun? I wasn’t too far off. New information about Mii (from George Harrison, NOA’s Senior VP of Marketing and Corporate Communication) says we’re going to be creating more than one Mii and we’re going to like it. First off, the gathering place of the Miis is officially called… Read More

  • PlayStation 3 Preorders Up On Ebay…Again

    For all those eager-beaver gamers and parents who want to please their kids, the PlayStation 3 preorders are up on Ebay again. At least this time, they’re legitimate. I’m actually kind of surprised to see PS3 preorders selling for a max of $1,500; I thought they’d go way higher than that. Though, it’s probably just because Christmas is still more than two months away. Read More

  • Google Launches Website Optimizer

    Google will soon begin offering AdWords advertisers a new tool to experiment with a variety of different landing page layouts in order determine which one gains the most conversions from site visitors.

  • My Personal Weight Issues, Meet My Personal Computer

    I never said that I was exceptionally thin, but some people (Blake) have been criticizing my weight, as of late (Gavin is a fat bastard – Blake). Fortunately, Tanita has developed the PC InnerScan scale. Upon first glance, this is just a high-end scale with a digital readout for weight and body fat. What you don’t see in the picture is the USB memory drive that you can hook-up to… Read More

  • Monster Shows Zune Some Accessory Love


    Thanks to high-end cable and accessory manufacturer Monster, future Zune owners will be able to do at least six things with their new media player—granted they are six fairly unimpressive activities. There’s a 10-foot A/V cable to connect to your TV. A headphone splitter with individual volume controls so you and another somebody can listen to a Zune—simultaneously! Read More

  • Sony's Bluetooth A2DP MicroHiFi

    Sony’s CMT-U1BT is the first player from Sony (that we’ve seen) to feature A2DP Bluetooth 2.0 specifications, which means you can stream audio to the device from across the room. You can either use an A2DP-enabled phone or a PC with an A2DP-enabled dongle – either way, you don’t need to be directly plugged into the receiver. If you’re lacking an A2DP device, you… Read More
