    Facebook’s Having Some Issues With Twitter Cross-Posting, But Nobody Cares. For Reasons.

    As The Next Web reported, users are finding that their Facebook status messages aren’t being cross-posted to Twitter even though they’ve set up their accounts to do so. I first noticed this the other night, but thought nothing of it, since I’m not really a fan of cross-posting. We reached out to both companies and Facebook let us know that this was indeed a bug and that… Read More

    Apple: No cash for iPhones at the Apple store

    There aren’t many iPhones left, as many note, but if you do find one and you want to purchase it, you’re going to need a credit card. It’s not for the activation or anything of that sort, but Apple requires you to use a marked form of payment for the transaction to help eliminate scalpers, a problem it’s had between itself and AT&T. According to Apple it does this… Read More

    This is hardly a ghetto blaster cellphone

    To me, “ghetto blaster” can mean either of two things: a so-so album by Armand van Helden and a stupidly large boombox popular in urban areas some 20 years ago. Looking at this cellphone—generically referred to as the Mini Boombox GSM Cell Phone—the phrase “ghetto blaster” does not come to mind. Yes, it plays MP3s, but so so watches nowadays. Yes, it has… Read More

    Bejeweled Is Now Free For Your iPhone

    I think it’s safe to say that iPhone owners are cutting edge individuals and in order to keep up that fa├žade you must know about everything iPhone. Keeping with that trend, don’t be the oddball not playing Bejeweled while waiting in line at Starbucks. Popcap Games has developed a free iPhone-only version that’s playable via Safari. Actually, anyone can play it for free… Read More

    Renchi Wii Airplane Controller Stand

    Did anyone seriously believe the Wii was going to be a hit? I certainly should have known and maybe I could have used my brainpower to start up a Wii business selling some crap accessory that everyone will want to buy rather than whatever it was I was doing last year. Renchi now has an airplane stand for your Wiimote and nunchuck for the Wii Sports game, Airplane. It’s not exactly… Read More

  • Verizon Pioneers MMS Uploading…NOT!!!

    Verizon Pioneers MMS Uploading…NOT!!!

    Verizon may be able to call themselves the most reliable voice and data network in the country, but they’re certainly not the first to allow users to upload videos to YouTube via MMS. The fact that they’re releasing a press release touting such a feat is pretty ridiculous and embarrassing. Verizon, pay close attention to what I’m about to say. Helio was the first provider in… Read More

    Diablo PC: Ugly and Powerful, but Mostly Ugly

    Not to be outdone by the garish showboating of Alienware, Smooth Creations (so smooth!) has debuted its Diablo PC line of gaming PCs. We’re not sure if there’s an actual name for the color of this thing, but ColorPicker’s closest match was “vomited banana and tequilla shooter”. The beast does have the goods under the hood, it’s a full-fledged gaming machine… Read More

    EMI's First DRM-free Release: The Good, The Bad & The Queen

    Yay! The first EMI album to be offered for download free of copy protection, or digital rights management (DRM), is now available. “The Good, The Bad & The Queen” can be downloaded in the “new format,” aka 320Kbps MP3s, directly from the band’s Website. Apple’s iTunes Music Store also has a “Live from SoHo EP” with five tracks recorded, um… Read More

    SnoopStick: A Big Brother for the Only Child

    If you’re one of those stern parents worthy of being called a fascist, then allow me to direct your attention to the SnoopStick. This USB device comes imbued with software that allows you to monitor remote systems. Simply plug the SnoopStick into a PC that needs spying and 60 seconds later its compromised and you can snoop on it from anywhere. The software is completely invisible, so… Read More

    Wii Weights For The Overweight Lummox

    Are you a Wii owner/fanboy? Need another pointless purchase to keep Wii Sports fun for another week? Look no further than Wii Weights. These normal weights that you can buy at Target for $5 come with a Wii logo and are probably “designed” to work with a bunch of Wii Sports titles. Luckily, they’re not for sale and probably never will be. Though I must admit with the weather… Read More
