  • Perrelet Turbine XL Watch Review

    If it is fun and you play with, then it is a toy right? call the novel spinning turbine style disc in this watch what you like - but this is a man's toy of the highest caliber. Does being akin to a toy degrade the feeling of luxury and high-end prestige that Perrelet is going for? No. At least I don't think so. Wealthy guys who stand around with nice watches talking about cars and boats are often… Read More

  • Review: Monster Turbine in-ear speakers

    Review: Monster Turbine in-ear speakers

    Now that I’ve had a couple days with the Turbines, I think it’s time for a full review.

I can write blog posts and… uh, I can count real high (mom says), but even looking at the ingredients list for this particular tech recipe nearly gives me a panic attack. Still, it’s… Read More

    Virtual Worlds Are So Hot Right Now: $345 Million Invested So Far This Year

    I feel like today is Virtual World Day. We started off the morning covering the public beta launch of Vivaty, then Second Life and IBM announced that they bridged two virtual worlds, and Google launched its own version of virtual worlds with Lively. If it seems like everybody is starting their own virtual world, it is because they are. A report put out today by Virtual Worlds Management tracks… Read More
