  • GeekBrief.TV #269

    We’re swinging into holiday gadget giving season by leaving our comfort zone and talking about cool tools for this year’s yule. The first one I saw on, of all things, a TV commercial. It’s called the Accu Mark Gecko Grip Level and it’s designed to help us hang art and shelving straight without a hassle. Then we move on to one that could work as a stocking stuffer. Read More

  • Day of the Ninja! Ninja Gaiden II will destroy you, the world, potentially your parents

    http://www.crunchgear.com/video/player.swf?movie=ninja.flv Video might be touchy. Let me know if you have problems. Tecmo just released first videos of the new Ninja Gaiden game for the 360. In it Ryu deals out justice with his fists of fury, kills enemies, and calls Amex when he finds out someone charged something from “Turkish mirrors online” to his credit card and he… Read More

  • 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’. It ‘evolves’. It’s also not very badass. This thing, in a very mass-appealing kind of way, is a puppy. Read More

  • The Writer's Strike: Week 5, the sadness sets in but fun is still in the offing

    Former Colbert Report — they’re technically former until Sumner Redstone’s distended syphilitic heart explodes, releasing billions in online revenue back into the economy at large — have new allies. Yes, friends, small animals emoting will no longer support mainstream media. Read More

    http://i4.photobucket.com/player.swf?file=http://vid4.photobucket.com/albums/y113/one028/MOV02852.flv My recent switch to a BlackBerry has me compulsively looking for mods and everything cool for my 8320 and this may or may not be newsworthy or even new to some of you, but it’s Sunday and some of you may be bored. I haven’t tried this yet, so I can’t vouch for it, but my… Read More

  • 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. They’re what they sound like: videos of people watching… Read More

    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

  • Cellfish sends videos to your phone, helps you slack off

    http://cellfish.com/static/swf/player8.swf?Id=241751 This looks like it’s easy to use. Plus, the video is both funny AND informative. It basically allows you to send videos to your phone via text message. Available videos are on Cellfish’s own web site but developers can play around with the API or use the "Add-to-Phone" widget to offer content from their own sites. You… Read More

  • Zune's new ad = WTF, mate?

    It’s not a secret that I like the Zune by Microsoft, a software company out of Redmond, WA. It could have been an also-ran, but the team at Bear Creek has done a good job of making a device that builds well on the success of others, something we call “innovation”. But I don’t understand this new ad. It’s cool, don’t get me wrong, but how do cartoon cobras… Read More

  • Video: Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin pitch Verizon Wireless with wry approach

    I always thought Mike Myers was the ultimate in product placement, but Tina Fey has thrown down the gauntlet. Myers made fun of advertisers wanting characters in film and TV to use their products in Wayne’s World famously, and the Austin Powers series is riddled with similar products. Above is a video clip from the latest episode of the wonderful 30 Rock, where Verizon Wireless is the… Read More

We start with a new update for Zoho Writer that makes it possible to now edit documents off-line. There’s a Zoho screencast explaining how it works here. I get a ton of email from EyeTV users.
