  • GeekBrief.TV #268


    A PR agency contacted me and offered to send some products from a gadget company they represent. All of the gadgets are fun USB toys, so I thought it would make a great stocking stuffer show. If you’re going to stuff a stocking with a USB gadget, I think you have to stick some kind of iPod in it. My recomendation this year is the Nano. On this brief, I also talk about Brando’s… Read More

  • Pleo Dinosaur Robot Marches Its Way into My Heart

    Pleo is a new $350 ‘life form’ dinosaur robot created by Ugobe. Unlike all the robot dinosaurs I know (e.g. the WowWee Roboraptor), the Pleo is not remote-controlled. It’s ‘self-aware’.

  • 2 Girls 1 Cup meta videos are some of the funniest things around

    Without a doubt, the most famous video on the Internet this month is the legendary 2 girls 1 cup, something I strongly urge you not to google. What’s amazing, though, isn’t just that it exists or that it’s making the rounds it is, but rather the creation of a whole bevy of “reaction videos” on YouTube.

    This is a pretty neat mod from ShakerRacer that uses the N95’s accelerometer via Bluetooth. Are our recent N95 winners willing to rig an RC with Bluetooth and test this out for us? Read More

  • Entire South Park collection online for free next year

    Realizing that putting past episodes of TV shows online may actually increase television viewership, MTV Networks has decided to "make every clip from every episode" of South Park available online. I’m not exactly sure why they didn’t just say "every episode" but I hope that’s what they mean. Anyway, it’s thought that other programs from MTV… Read More
