    Someone Please Tell John Biggs He Has The Wrong Press Credentials

    We totally laughed at John’s expense at Digital Life today. Last night there was a press event called ShowStoppers, totally unrelated to Digital Life. Similar stuff, sure, but completely different show. Someone noticed that all of our Digital Life badges were different: I have “Crunch Gear,” Vince has “CrunchGear,” Peter has “CrunchGear.com,” Blake has… Read More

    Digital Life 2007: The Man (Kid, Really) Behind The 'Cruce Wayne' Moniker

    Cruce Wayne rules Like Vince said, he and I picked a random kid at the end of the Digital Life entrance line today, hooked him up with a press badge and took him around the show floor. A journalist for the day, if you will. Free T-shirts and other goodies and review units were but some of the items he took home. But who is he? Who is Cruce Wayne (and why does that name make us laugh so very much)? Read More

    Digital Life 2007: Parrot 3.5-inch Photo Frame Debuted

    Parrot really loves Bluetooth. In fact, I’m pretty sure if a Parrot was a doughnut, Bluetooth would be a cup of coffee. What? OK, anyways, Parrot unveiled its new 3.5-inch Bluetooth photo frame today. It comes in several different colors with a stitched leather trim surrounding the tiny display. Although tiny, it displays pictures beautifully and can hold up to 100 of them on its internal… Read More

    Digital Life Cruceified: Lord of the Rings Online

    As Cruce Wayne and I went around the showroom, I asked what kind of tech he was into. Video games seemed to be Cruce’s forte, so we made our way over to Lord of the Rings Online and got a little demo going. The game is the only MMORPG for the LotR trilogy and works closely with the Tolkien estate to ensure the content in the game is of excellent quality. Read More

    Digital Life 2007: The Mascots

    I have no idea why Popeye and Olive Oyle were at Digital Life, but Pac-Man was repping Namco and looked really happy to be walking around in a hot mascot suit all day. After the jump, Popeye and a dirty elementary school classic. Be warned though, Popeye’s chin looks like a pair of balls, so it may be a little NSFW if your boss is a testicle connoisseur. Read More

    Erector SpyKee: Erector

    Nikko and Erector just launched the Spykee Spy Robot, a Johnny-5-esque little fellow that recharges itself and includes a webcam and MP3 player all in a clever little package. It costs about $299 and lets you watch your family remotely, ensuring that your domicile will be safe from robo-phobic burglers. It reacts to motion so when someone pops in for a visit the SpyKee can email their picture to… Read More

    MagicJack: Apply Directly to the USB Port

    Arthur C. Clarke once wrote that the future will be characterized by free, high-quality communication around the world. He was originally talking about satellite telephony, but it seems his predictions have come to pass, albeit using a few more wires. MagicJack is a phone company that charges about $20 a year for unlimited local and long distance calling. You can’t call Japan, but you can… Read More
