  • Behold the Clicker: the ultimate lazy man device

    Behold the Clicker: the ultimate lazy man device

    It's fairly easy to find exactly when most Americans started to get fat. All you have to do is go back to the 1950's. Some would say this is due to our fast food lifestyle, people spending too much time in front of the TV instead of running from animals, or even possibly a plot by Colonel Sanders. I think it's directly related to the invention of the remote control. Now, there's even less reason… Read More

  • Review: Aperture 3

    Review: Aperture 3

    If you’re a photographer and use a Mac, chances are you’re using Lightroom or Aperture. Probably Lightroom, since Aperture is less popular among pros — and the latest version seems to be an acknowledgment of that. The features added in version 3 are clearly intended to draw casual shooters using iPhoto to the paid image editing honey pot. Since so many of these amazing new… Read More

  • The HD JVC Everio GZ-HM550 lets smartphones control functions via Bluetooth

    The HD JVC Everio GZ-HM550 lets smartphones control functions via Bluetooth

    The JVC GZ-HM550 brings a new set of standards to the table. It isn't the 1920 x 1080 recording or 9 MP stills. Nor is it the 32GB internal flash memory with an SD/SDHC card slot playing backup or even the Konica Minolta HD lens. Nope, it's the novel Bluetooth function that might make a full size camcorder relevant again in a smartphone world. Read More

    Nintendo DSi XL: March 28, $190

    Nicholas here, from the past communicating to the future! (The site is all messed up, so I probably wrote these words several hours before you're reading them. It's like a Metal Gear Time Paradox or something.) Nintendo has said it will release the DSi XL on March 28 for $190. Read More

  • Water runs uphill in mysterious silicon etching

    Water runs uphill in mysterious silicon etching

    Bet you weren't expecting that headline tonight, were you? Well, it's about as literal as I could get. Some enterprising boffins at the University of Rochester used a high-powered laser to etch microscopic patterns in silicon such that water overcomes its own hydrophilia and goes in whatever direction they please. This is very much still a laboratory discovery, but a few years down the road, you… Read More

  • Metroid Other M: No Nunchuk, No Cry

    Metroid Other M: No Nunchuk, No Cry

    When Nintendo first unveiled Metroid Prime, fans were skeptical (if not downright apeshit). For a 2D adventure game based on exploration, how could it possibly work in first person? Long story short, Metroid Prime was pretty much universally loved upon release, and now that the Metroid Prime trilogy has gone on to become something of a classic series, all is forgiven. And when Nintendo announced… Read More
