  • Verizon Fashion Show: A circle of Hell or a good time with free mojitos?

    You’re a young model, trying to make it in the city. Maybe Kansas wasn’t the place for you. Maybe your peers didn’t understand you. You liked fashion and acting and you were pretty hot and skinny and you thought “Hey, screw the 1st Baptist Church Christmas pageant. My friend Drew lives in New York, someplace called Williams Burg and he said I could stay with him and maybe… Read More

  • GBTV #0256 | GeekBrief.TV

    I love gadget news, but gadget reviews…not so much. With the news, I get to talk about what’s exciting to me in the world of tech and consumer electronics. With reviews, I get a product shipped to the G.I.A. HQ where we unbox it with the sad knowledge that we’ll be re-boxing it and sending it back. I tend to only review stuff I like enough to buy, but on this Brief I make… Read More

  • YouTube unwraps multiple file uploader, 1GB size limit

    Ah, that’s nice. YouTube users will now be able to download and install software that allows them the ability to upload multiple files at once — Windows-based YouTube users, that is (Mac version coming soon) — but more importantly in my eyes is the new video file size limitation. It’s gone from 100MB to 1GB. The length of your videos is still capped at 10 minutes but… Read More

  • Bullet DVR for serious racers

    The Bullet DVR system is a portable video recorder designed for racing. It records all of your racing action from a first-person point of view and can be played back on a Windows PC. TrackTimer, a provided app, will allow you to log your lap times, jetting, gearing, suspension and fuel consumption. If you’re a struggling serious racer, this could be a great tool to study your driving… Read More

  • DIY: Robot takes 360 degree photos

    I’m not much of a DIYer, but sometimes things come up that just make me want to break out the toolbox and start doing some damage. This is such a time, folks. I’m obsessed with photography lately, so this would be a fun project for me. At least, I think it would be. Who doesn’t want to take 360-degree shots? You can totally make the other photogs look like amateurs when you… Read More

  • LG Voyager goes gangsta

    I’m pretty sure Verizon paid someone to make this video. Heh. I guess it does a decent job of showcasing all the Voyager’s features, though, I’m sick and tired of the ‘iPhone killer’ BS. Can you people please stop comparing the iFones to every new phone that comes out? It’s pretty much the most annoying thing anyone can say and it just makes you look ignorant. Read More

  • Zune ad team, I don't get it

    http://images.soapbox.msn.com/flash/soapbox1_1.swf
    Video: Zune TV Spot Between the new Zune ads and Sony’s PS3 gibberish, I’m beginning to lose faith that I’ll ever see a good advert ever, again. This new ad is very arsty fartsy, but I don’t understand what’s going on in it. He’s watching a video of animated ice cream, which makes him daydream about climbing… Read More

  • The future that was supposed to be today is just plain creepy

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf A friend sent this to me and I’m not exactly sure what to think of it. Part of me enjoys watching old videos like this and seeing what’s come to fruition and what ideas are still being thrown around some 50 years later. Then the other part of me is just creeped out at how subservient the women in… Read More

  • Sony, I don't understand your commercials

  • E3, way back when

    http://p.castfire.com/Xu7m0/video/3425/bbtv_2007-11-02-213900.flv The video is a little choppy and the host is manic (and his story is quite sad) to say the least, but it’s fun to see what E3 used to be — a malevolent pleasure dome of scantily clad women and video games — and what happens when you subvert the status quo by dry humping Miss Pac Man. SFW unless you work for… Read More

  • GeekBrief.TV #253

    Today we learned the Gphone is an alliance committed to building a new open platform that just might result in the phones of our dreams. Bug Labs is releasing a build-your-own gadget system called BUG. It starts with the BUGbase, a small, fully programmable Linux computer that can be expanded with a set of hardware add-ons and an open-source development platform. I founded the Geek… Read More

  • What's the benefit of a DLP HDTV?

    I’m sure you’ve seen the DLP commercials floating around and you may have wondered what the fuss was about, right? It’s quite simple, really. DLP technology is wicked fast thanks to all the crazy mirrors that are involved. It has an eight-microsecond response time and a refresh rate up to 300hz and tends to be 1,000 times faster than most other HDTVs. Still not sure… Read More

  • GeekBrief.TV #252

    We shot Brief #252 at Abilene Christian University  where we were two of the judges at their annual student film festival.  It’s an amazing school that loves technology and wants to understand how to embrace it more.  On this Brief I try to explain the premise behind Joss Whedon’s new series on FOX.  Joss is a genius and the new show is… Read More

  • Tesla coil Super Mario Brothers theme: Don't tase me, Wario

    How does this even work? I’m really confused. Essentially, these are two Tesla coils sending out signals based on MIDI input. But how do you control the frequency of the shock to make the music? There are no speakers involved. Engineers? A little help? via Make Read More
