• 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

    Download We had an amazing night Sunday night on Ustream. Geoff Smith twittered that he was on and working in his studio. I twittered that people should stop by, and we wound up having an amazing ones and zeros party. If you don’t want to miss the next one, subscribe to my Twitter or Pownce feeds. I’m not much of a beer drinker, but if I was, I’d probably be all over… Read More

  • HTC Touch Cruise groped on film

    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

  • New Mac/PC Ad: Don't give up on Vista

    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.

  • Look at the pretty lights

    I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of light art. It’s just about the neatest thing out there in terms of non-traditional mediums of artwork. It also helps that they’re reenacting some Star Wars. So sit back, relax and enjoy the show. Read More

  • 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
