That could change however, because these little (7-inch) tablets look to be selling for around $100 each. Read More

    New color printer cuts printing costs, costs $20,000

    Cheap color printing has long been the holy grail of grade-schoolers everywhere*. As you well know, Dad or Mom usually has a copier at work. This copier, at least in my day, was used to make multiple copies of hand-drawn comic books. These comic books are then sold at school for five or ten cents each.

    When does inexpensive mean cheap? ‘Sport In-Ear MP3 Player’

    A British shoppe is now hawking what it calls the “Sport In-Ear MP3 Player,” a do-as-you-like 1GB MP3 player you wear around your head. With styling straight out of 1997, the player does all sorts of unexpected things, like supporting, in addition to MP3, WMA and WAV. Its little battery charges over USB. No Mac support, it looks like, but who needs that! So it’s a little on the… Read More

    Merry Xmas: Sub-$100 Blu-ray drives for PCs in your stockings

This is an important step to getting universal Blu-ray adoption, something we all want. These are readers only; they’d be able to burn standard DVDs and CDs.

    These foldable cardboard $15 speakers are worth every dollar

    I fully doubt these speakers sound like anything other than ass, but they will only set you back a tenner if you look and they fold up to fit in your laptop bag — can you really say no to that? They’re made of recycled materials, which implies that they too are recyclable. These are the perfect speakers for taking to the beach or a picnic with that eco-conscious friend of yours. Read More

    Gen-X Console: NES + Genesis = Retro-awesome

    How come I don’t find things like this before Xmas? This is the Gen-X Dual station, likely the weirdest console I’ve ever met. It’s an NES and a Sega Genesis combined into one, but the thing is it doesn’t use ROMs; it uses the old cartridges you’ve got in that box in the back of your closet. Yes, this is real. Gen-X Dual station plays Sega Genesis and NES games… Read More

    Envision HD 720p 32-inch LCD-TV: Awful cheap or cheaply awful?

    Envision makes fairly good TVs for not much money. This 32-inch model is about $500 online right now and it has a built-in digital tuner and two HDMI in ports. You can also use it as a video monitor at 1366 x 768 pixels at 60Hz. Your best bet is to pick this up as a second TV in the house as it supports 1080i in but doesn’t display 1080i. One wag posted an online review noting that Envision… Read More
