    Review: Sony ICD-UX70 voice recorder (1GB)

    I tip my hat to the excitement that is Monday morning with a hard-hitting review of a digital voice recorder. It’s the Sony ICD-UX70 with built-in USB connection and one-gigabyte of storage space. Hold on to your hat, it’s about to get crazy up in here. Read More

    Review: Kingston DataTraveler HyperX USB flash drive


    Flash drives have become so ubiquitous that people don’t really question them any more. I know I didn’t until I got this Kingston DT. I have a handful of thumbdrives of various sizes and qualities, and I just sort of accepted that there wasn’t much variation between them aside from build quality and capacity. I never asked myself what would happen if you put high-end… Read More

  • Review: Keychain Breathalyzer + Flashlight

      Behold the Chinavasion.com Breathalyzer Keychain Car Gadget with built-in flashlight and stopwatch. It costs a meager $4.43 — far less than other breathalyzer gadgets — and it seems to work although it tops out at a 0.05 blood alcohol content (BAC) reading, so you’ll never really be quite sure if you’re over the 0.08 limit in most states.

Companies like Tokyoflash and Nooka have filled that techno-void with watches that are both high-tech and cool looking. Now… Read More

  • Review: Guitar Hero carabiner

    Review: Guitar Hero carabiner

    Nicholas and I attended the Toy Fair here in NYC and this was one of the three of four items we found cool. The carabiner was rather large and was hardly audible, but I guess for the price, you can’t expect too much. The fanboys will probably jump all over it, but I think I’ll pass. Read More

  • Review: Sony Mylo 2

    [photopress:IMGP3353.JPG,full,pp_image] Many of you may have read about the Mylo 2 a few weeks ago when someone else broke embargo, but we chose to take the high road and follow the rules. The purported images of the Mylo 2 were legitimate, but you could have figured it out for yourselves. It’s much larger than the first gen Mylo and while it’s features are above and beyond that of… Read More
