  • Palm OS apps on Nokia tablet in action: Video

    That whole thing where you can run Palm OS apps on Nokia internet tablets, like the N770, 800, and the new 810? It’s not fake, and it seems pretty kickass. Above you see a photo of the VM in action, and I’ve given you a video after the jump. At first glance, it appears to be an academic hack, however when you consider the thousands of touchscreen-friendly apps available freely for… Read More

  • The Matrix is eight years old and so are the moves

    Killer Bean Forever – Official Trailer – video powered by Metacafe Don’t get me wrong, I liked the Matrix movies and the fight scenes were top notch, but everyone has copied that style and it’s getting really, really old, like, eight years old. But it’s not every day you see a… Read More

  • Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario

    "It’s me…Mario!" That’s Charles Martinet talking. Upon first glance, I noticed that this clip is damn near 10 minutes long and thought that it might drag on and on but it’s actually got some pretty interesting factoids and tidbits about how game development and video game voice-overs work. WiiWii interviews Charles Martinet, voice of Mario, Nintendo [YouTube]… Read More

  • The writer's strike in plain English

    Viacom sues YouTube for 1 billion, writers get 75 cents a word. Viacom estimates downloadable content is worth $500 million and writers get bad coffee. There’s the bottom line. Hopefully this strike destroys the media conglomerates and a new, communal writing system takes root and flourishes in the wasteland of dead media, but it won’t. We’ll just have to wait longer for Lost… Read More

  • Man, zero gravity looks really fun I bet you’d get sick of this after a certain amount of time. The question is, how long would it take? I think it’d be awesome for 48-72 hours. Just like Las Vegas. Space Playground [] via MetaFilter Read More

  • Microsoft, I totally get your Xbox 360 ads The Parking Lot. I totally get this. Sony, you should probably take some notes because Microsoft clearly knows how to produce commercials that the general public can understand. Yeah, the balloon dropping of components is weird, but at least I know what’s going on. This is a clear indication that the Xbox 360 still owns the streets. Read More

  • New Zune firmware scrolls more than twice as fast

  • Verizon is bad at correctly quoting data rates

    Wow. Watch this. Sure, kilobits and kilobytes and fractions of pennies can be confusing but this is amazing. You’d think they’d have this information available. This guy asked 56 Verizon operators the same two questions; "What is the data overage rate for the basic 10MB data plan for $29.99?" and "What is the data roaming rate in Canada on the Core Choice 450… Read More

  • Assassin's Creed video review has a good video review of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited about this game. GT’s basic view is that the game is gorgeous and innovative, albeit a bit repetitive and with a less-than-stellar enemy AI. "Assassin’s Creed breaks new ground but fails… Read More

    The HTC Touch Cruise, which looks strikingly similar to the Android demo is now official. In Europe. As expected the TouchFLO UI is present in case you didn’t pick that up from the name. It runs WinMo 6, which is bearable with TouchFLO, has a built-in GPS, HSDPA, stereo Bluetooth and 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi. You’re not even reading this anyway since there’s a video. HTC Touch… Read More

  • Spaloo installation video: The good, the bad, and me on the toilet

    Note: the failure of this install was not Spaloo’s fault — our contractor messed up installing the toilet itself along with the electricity and his failures did not allow me to wash my bum correctly. You cannot believe how much I wanted to install this. I think what I’ll do is install it in the new bathroom we’re putting in here in my attic. I was really crying at… Read More

    Oh, those silly guys who are Macs and PCs on the TV. They’re always quibbling, but you know they really love each other. I bet John Hodgman and Justin Long go out drinking after the shoots and sometimes, just sometimes, they look across the table at each other and there’s something there, something dark and forbidden — they feel Boot Camp.
