    Reader Response: Festivus Week Concludes

    It’s over! Seven days of tenacious commenting; seven days of you readers scrambling for a chance to win a Nikon D40 camera kit. We’ve already given away a bunch of SanDisk Cruzer flash drives as part of our Reader Response Festivus Week, but I imagine today is the day you’ve all been waiting for. So who gets the D40?

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 4


    The sky is falling! Or at least is seems like it. There is some apocalyptic raining goin’ on down here in NOLA. Katrina Deux perhaps. Flooding everywhere. I saw kids paddling canoes down the street through several feet of water. Yea. It was messy. I spent most of the day cowering from rain and thunder—a solid excuse to make some headway in the new Pynchon novel Against the… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 3


    Ah Wednesday, Reader Response Festivus Week moves on bringing us one day closer to Friday; one day closer to that Nikon D40. It also means that today is the first day we’re giving away a SanDisk Cruzer Titanium. I’ve been using a Titanium flash drive for a bunch of months now and I heart it. U3 enabled drives kick major ass. Especially if you use a lot of public terminals. You… Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 2


    Greetings all. Now that today is winding down, I’d like to take a quick moment to announce the second Sandisk Cruzer Winner. Lots of good comments today and I enjoyed reading many of them. So anyway, your winner is: Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week – Day 1


    To think we started CrunchGear just a little over five months ago. Its growth has been quick, and looking across the posts there is a comment on almost every entry. It kind of makes me sentimental when I think of how fast our little site is growing up. Pretty soon it’ll start growing hair in inconvenient places and thinking about other blogs in new ways. I’m preparing myself for… Read More

  • BluOynx Mobile Content Server


    Agere Systems has announced the BluOynx Mobile Content Server, a device that aims to un-tether users from PCs and stationary storage devices. The BluOynx server is a small portable server that is controlled via cell phone. It is about the size of a credit card and supports USB, Bluetooth and WiFi. The server will come in capacities ranging from 1GB – 40GB. Read More

    Reader Response: Festivus Week


    As I mentioned previously, Reader Response for the coming week is going to be big. Rather than awarding one grand prize on Friday, we’ll be awarding prizes every day next week. And boy are they good prizes. Since Festivus is next week, we’ve decided to pull out all the stops and give away some of our best prizes ever. So good in fact, that you’re going to have to take the… Read More

    Reader Response Week Three


    Consider this the conclusion of week three of reader response. We’ve had some incredibly insightful comments and, as always, I’m proud of each and every one of you&mdashyou’re all winners to me! I’m going to do this as one big announcement with both the winner of the Nike+iPod adapter and then the final M2 Convert winners. And so, without further adieu: Read More

    Presto! For the Elderly


    As we reported recently, Presto is a service that aims to bring e-mail to those incapable of operating a computer. It uses a special printer designed by HP that hooks up to your phone line to print e-mails. The thought is that those without the slightest inkling of technical knowledge will still be able to receive e-mails from their friends and family. In some capacity, the idea makes sense. Read More

    M2 Convert Winners: Day 07


    Another day, another round of M2 Convert winners. I’ve scoured the edges of Tuesday’s posts and dredged up 10 new winners for you all. With only 30 copies left, we’re entering the final hump of the giveaway. But here are the winners for day seven: Read More

    M2 Convert Winners: Day 05


    I know, I know, I’m a slacker. These should have been announced yesterday. Sorry. Please forgive me, etc. OK, now that that’s out of the way, I have the fifth installment of M2 Convert winners. Here are the winners from Friday: Read More

    Reader Response Week Two



    We have a winner for the Samsung Blackjack, so all comments from here on out will count for next Friday’s as of yet unannounced prize. Before I announce the winner, however, I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for contributing so thoroughly. We truly can’t do the site without you and your participation helps us know that we’re on the right track with what kind of… Read More

    Reader Response Update


    There is almost exactly two hours until we give away the Samsung Blackjack. You all have been commenting furiously and for that I commend you. But that doesn’t mean you should slack off now. There is time yet. You could win. Decisions have not been made! So comment like the wind and win your very own Samsung Blackjack. You have until 5PM EST. Oh and if you enjoy CrunchGear, please be… Read More

    M2 Convert Winners: Day 04


    How exciting, I get to actually announce the Thursday winners punctually, not way into the afternoon. I’d like to thank M2 Convert for graciously donating copies of its popular file conversion tool. It makes converting files to iPod (there are also versions for Zune, PSP, Zen and Smartphones). Anyway, winners! Ten more for ya. They should be coming faster now. Here they are: Read More

    M2 Convert: Day 03


    The saga continues! We’ve had a bumpy two days, but appear to be settling into our new home now. A more stable server means a more loving environment for our little heathens Matt, Raj and Vince, since I won’t have to yell at them all day in fits of of misplaced drunken rage at our previous old-and-busted server. So that at least is cause for celebration (for them). Alrighty… Read More

    WildCharge Makes Tesla Proud


    Chargers are one of the banes of being a tech dork. It’s a necessary evil, but they’re a pain in the ass to keep track of. That goes doubly if you travel a lot. I really can’t even begin to express how many chargers I’ve left in anonymous hotel rooms, never to be seen again. And what woe there is when you discover your charger missing miles away from home as your… Read More

    Battle Test: G-Tech Messenger Bag


    When I was first contacted about the The Professional messenger bag from G-Tech, I was mainly intrigued by its iPod functionality. Not only does it have ElekTex fiber controls on the shoulder strap, it has a an integrated speaker for blasting your music publicly. Sure the idea is like something from the ’80s, but like I said, I found its convergence intriguing. After some coordination… Read More

    M2 Convert Winners: Day 02


    Argh. Sorry for the delay in announcing these, everyone. We’ve been having some technical difficulties and I wanted to give people the night to respond on yesterday’s pieces. I’ve got 11 winners for you here. Jon, who won on the day 01, graciously gave up his copy because he didn’t have an iPod or a PSP. Anyway, make the jump to learn if you’ve won: Read More

    Sorry for that hiccup everyone, it looks like we’re back up and rolling now. Guess we’re experiencing some growing pains. Anywho, don’t forget about our Reader Response contests. In addition to our grand prize this week, a brand new Samsung Blackjack, we’re also giving away 10 copies of M2 Convert per day for the next nine days. Participation is easy, all you have to do… Read More
