    Twitter Now Lets You Know When You’ve Typed Something Clickable Or Went Over The Character Limit

    Here’s a nifty little addition to Twitter’s website. When you start composing your tweet, the text will change colors when you’ve added something clickable, like a username or URL. The text changes to blue, and this is to let you know that you’ve done something “different.” It’s nice onboarding for new users, or when you’re quickly typing out… Read More

    Yes, Virginia, there is a red Xbox 360 on the way

    Rumor smashed! Wait, no, the other one… confirmed. Sorry! Anyhow, Microsoft has inadvertently (?) revealed the existence of the red Xbox 360 that we mentioned the other day. It’s an Elite, and it will be exclusive to EB Games. Well, that’s what’s going to happen in New Zealand; what happens in god old USA, who knows. Read More

    Sony Japan today announced the “Carnival Colors” collection of PSP-3000s [JP], which will go on sale in Nippon starting March.

  • CloudBook to be upgraded in short order: SSD, touchscreens, colors!

    [photopress:girlycloudbook.jpg,full,center] I knew it. I told you people, and nobody wanted to listen. I said that the next great tech battleground would be in tiny, ultra-portable PCs and everyone laughed. Well chuckle no more, hombres, because the upgrades coming to the Everex CloudBooks could just start things off with a bang. The director of marketing for Everex says that the next rendition… Read More

    [photopress:dsbluereal.jpg,full,center] That Cobalt Blue Nintendo DS? Yeah, she’s real. To be released on Feb. 10, the portable system “grabs your attention” with its fancy new paint job. Nintendo says that, with the wide variety of different color DSs now available, there’s one color “to complement any outfit.” It’s still $130 and still a fun… Read More

    Verizon's Venus: Now in pink

    Remember when Peter said a couple weeks ago that the Venus from Verizon wasn’t just a shiny accessory for women? Apparently it’s supposed to be, as Verizon today has released a pink version of the same phone. Same specs, same prices, just in pink. Available now from the website below, or on January 11th in retail stores. Pink Venus [Not the porn star] Read More

    Colorful Asus Eee models due early next year

    The tiny Asus Eee will be available in multiple colors early next year, according to Jenn over at pocketables.net (who is very nice, by the way). It’s thought that these color options will be available on the base-level $299 “2G Surf” model which has no webcam and half the RAM and storage of its now-available $399 big brother (available in black or white). I’ll go out… Read More

    Portable Western Digital hard drives now come in four super fantastic colors

    Do you care what color your portable hard drive is? Surely some of you do, since Western Digital now has its WD Passport Portable in four mind-blowing colors: vibrant green, glossy black, glossy white and metallic red. (I’d go with green, though we all know that it’s not easy being white…) Paint job aside, the USB-powered drives are as you’d expect from Western… Read More

    Rumor: iPod Nano Gets Redesign, New Colors

    Well, it’s been 11 months since we’ve seen a new nano and there’s a bit of news, albeit from the rumor mill, about the new nano that is set to drop some time before the end of the year, possibly at the Apple Expo in Paris. The above chop photoshop job from 9 to 5 Mac is obviously not the real thing, but the new redesign will entail a screen that takes up half of its facade. Read More

  • Toshiba Gigabeat U103: 24 Colors, Oh My

    Toshiba Gigabeat U103: 24 Colors, Oh My

    I can’t imagine needing 24 different colors for a simple DAP, but apparently Toshiba thinks otherwise. Its Gigabeat U103, which comes out today in some place called Japan, is more or less the same as last year’s model: 1GB, tiny 1.1-inch OLED display, FM radio/transmitter, etc. Standard DAP, but in 24 bold and exciting colors like red and… blue! Well, at least it’s… Read More

  • WWDC Banners Reveal Secrets

    Some crafty photographer over at Roughly Drafted managed to get some key shots inside the WWDC conference before it’s even started. Inside, there are some banners that say “Welcome to WWDC07 Expand your universe.” and “Mac OS X Leopard Rocket fuel for your apps.” Clearly this means that OS X Leopard will be the star of this year’s WWDC. In addition to… Read More

    Really Hot New DS Lite Colors: Metallic Rose and Glossy Silver

    Nintendo of Japan will release Metallic Rose and Glossy Silver DS Lites on June 23. That makes seven colors that you can find the DS Lite in over there. I was a dope and bought the white one when it first launched here, but I had my eye on this one before it went out of stock. Read More

  • Watermelon Zune Spotted

    Watermelon Zune Spotted

    At a “recent press event”, a photographer managed to snap some pictures of the rumored watermelon-colored Zune. While a new colored Zune is about exciting as Bran Oats coming out in an exciting new off-brown color, what’s on the inside is the important thing to keep in mind. Unfortunately, this is just the same old Zune, in a boring, ugly new color. Microsoft apparently… Read More

  • Spice Up That iPod With New Font Colors

    Spice Up That iPod With New Font Colors


    Owners of video iPods are blessed and there is no doubt about that. They get video while the rest of us mope around the streets just listening to music. Today is no different because those owners that I despise so much now have the ability to change the font color of the title bar, main menu and secondary font color. Oh great! Even Nano owners can do this. I give up. Maybe I’ll buy a Zune. Read More

  • Blackberry 8120 To Replace The Pearl

    Check out the Technicolor rainbow above. What you see could very well be the successor to the popular Blackberry Pearl. BGR received a reliable tip that the 8120 is to replace the Pearl this summer as an updated version. New features include color choices of black, red, titanium, and gold, a 2-megapixel camera (very nice), GPS, and WiFi. Yeah, WiFi. That means you can use IM+ to make free… Read More

    Colored Dumbbells Said to Make Exercising More Design Friendly

    Thinking that exercise equipment is often too spartan, Alex Undall has drawn up some concept art for future gear that looks like what Luke would use to work out his new electric hand. Here he’s come up with dumbbells made of crystal and in a variety of different colors. These dumbbells, which are nowhere near being released, let alone linked with a manufacturer, are supposed to… Read More

    Creative Zen Stone, Now in Six Rocking Colors for Rocking Out to Rock & Roll

    The Creative Zen Stone, which looks a hell of a lot like the iPod shuffle, will soon be available in these six colors. Yes, this is truly earth-shattering news, because you’ll be able to “rock in [color].” Go ahead, rock in blue, rock in red, or, if you’re certifiably insane, rock in black. How you’ll be able to “rock” with only 1GB of storage… Read More

    Samsung K3 Digital Audio Player Dipped in Red and Green Paint

    Samsung knows that the perfect way to give a consumer electronics product more life or buzz is to dip it into a giant can of paint. Behold, the reborn Yepp K3 digital audio player, now in [Christmas] red and green. Like always with these fruitily-colored devices, the specs haven’t changed at all. Not that they’re bad or anything, with storage capacities of 1, 2 and 4GB and a… Read More
