I’m Almost Ready for My Close-Up (Sleepy Thoughts on Video You Didn’t Demand)
Philipp Goedicke Now Vista’s out. It’s great . Or trash .
New Shuffles hit the floor [3-5].
But YouTube beckons with some cash . Wake up, you’re on in four.  Show off new products from all sides,
Tell others what you see [8-13].
If you made it, beam with pride . Wake… Read More
Vista Point Ahead (Time to Pull Over and Seek Relief)
Philipp Goedicke Blake thinks predictions of Business Week meek,
So he gave us a glimpse of the havoc they wreak .
But, hey, how would conservative investors stay aloft, mister,
Without betting on Google  and MicroSoft’s Vista ?
Since Vista’s gaming gives causes to shout ,
Let’s get it right now, though… Read More
Home, Sweet Couch
Philipp Goedicke We’re back home, decompressing,
Unpacking a mental mess [1, 2, 3],
And spending some time guessing
Just who killed CES. 
(My guess: it wasn’t Jobs and his sleight-of-hand tricks [5, 6],
It’s those seven other “dudes” who get lucky with the “chicks” .) And, already, faux iPhones can be gotten on the street ,

Philipp Goedicke Here I am, staring down an odd week in review [1, 2],
And since the task is obvious, I’ll do what I must do.
You know I cannot help myself, though some you may groan,
I’ll drum up some excitement  for the Apple, inc. iPhone.
The other brand new super-phones  are lambs led to the slaughter,
Because we all have seen, this week, Steve Jobs … Read More
Heave-ho, boys, and off to CES (or MacWorld)!
Philipp Goedicke The writing on the wall  says that the date looms near
So save and backup files [2-5],
Then take care the welfare of your feline pee-er ,
And capture burglars’ smiles [7,8].
Make sure than you can capture all the sights  and sounds ,
Strap wheels to both your feet ,
Have GPS so you can find your way around… Read More
Presents, Past, and Future
Philipp Goedicke The Happy , Merry  time is passed
And how did we all fare?
Did we get items meant to last
Or fleeting as the air?
If that tattoo is not for you
Just laser off the ink. 
Trade PS3 for someone’s Wii. 
(Drive Sony folks to drink.)
And all you bloggers keeping track:
MS wants its laptops back.*  With presents gone, the… Read More
Game Systems, By Hook or By Crook
Philipp Goedicke Want games that unused gift cards  cannot buy?
Since lotteries don’t work , give this a try:
This week impressed us with an old-school heist .
So go to Flippid  for a spy device ,
A tiny camera , a cell-phone-scope ,
A Gerber knife  in case you lose all hope.
A solar charger  might do you a favor.
For longer… Read More
Editor’s note: We at CrunchGear think our readers deserve something a little more than just a bland rundown of last week’s announcements, rumors, product launches and reviews. So on Monday mornings we’ve enlisted the help of Philipp Goedicke to write our recaps to complement Bryce Durbin’s illustrations. Fans of National Public Radio’s weekly news quiz show… Read More
