  • EgoKast, The Belt Clip MP3 Player


    We may not know much about fashion, but we know that wearing a 320×240 LCD as your belt buckle doesn’t quite fit the standard definition of “fashionable”. For those who disagree, the Egokast fits directly onto your belt and supports MPEG-4/AVI/JPEG/BMP/MP3/WMA files and has comes with a 512MB SD memory card for storage. It lasts four to five hours, which is just long… Read More

  • Samsung YP-K5 MP3 Player With Integrated Speakers

    It could be just iPod fatigue, but this YP-K5 from Samsung looks much better, classier, and dare we say it, sexier than the iPod Nano. The player has a pixel-type icon display and supports MP3/WMA/ASF, plus even the open source nerd supported OGG. It’s available in 1GB, 2GB and 4GB sizes. Even with that extra bulk from the integrated speaker, which we probably wouldn’t need most of… Read More

  • TomTom Finds Palm

    Palm announced today the Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition. The system is powered by the new TomTom NAVIGATOR 6 software that features voice navigation and turn-by-turn directions. Meanwhile, a new SiRFstarIII Bluetooth enabled GPS receiver handles all that meddlesome satellite communication. It is compatible with Treo 650, 700w and 700p devices. I’ve always wondered why GPS… Read More

  • Eyespot partners with Blip.tv, Veoh to provide online video editing

    Three online video startups announced a partnership this morning that will allow users to edit their videos on Eyespot and publish with a single click to Blip.tv and Veoh. This sounds like a smart move for all involved as editing and remixing ups the ante on features for video sharing. Partnering with another startup already providing the service may make more sense that building it into… Read More

  • Sirius Stiletto 100 Comes Unshod

    Sirius has produced its first fully-portable satellite radio receiver, and it is a gem. The Sirius Stiletto 100 hosts a bigger screen and an easy-to-use click wheel, putting the device in league with the more premium players. The pocket sized the player allows users to store up to 100 hours of music (MP3/WMAs), stream audio via WiFi connectivity and, you know, listen to Sirius content.. Read More

  • Moto W220 Gets FCC Nod

    Motorola’s latest clamshell the W220 has gotten FCC approval. The phone is intended as a base level device, so its features are somewhat lacking. Nevertheless, it will sport an FM receiver and a wap 2.0 browser. Perhaps I’m just falling for a gimmick, but I find something aesthetically pleasing about its modest exterior. I wonder if its retro-esque design will, like the RAZR, help… Read More

  • Wiki.com partners with MindTouch, says $3m domain is a deal

    Entrepreneur John Gotts has agreed to pay almost $3 million to purchase the domain wiki.com. With skeptics saying that he’ll back out of the deal through a contract clause or that the purchase is a huge sign of a bubble, Gotts announced today that he has teamed with San Diego based wiki provider MindTouch to make a serious wiki play with the domain name at the center of their strategy.

The machine also carries up to 2GB of DDR2 533 memory and a 250GB 7200RPM SATA hard drive. On… Read More

The first one is the Clamp-On Surge Protector (above image) which mounts on the back or side of your desk.

  • Razer Pro|Type iPod/Zune Dockable Keyboards

Not just supporting the Apple iPod, this Pro|Type has Media Center keys, programmable keys, 32KB of onboard memory, two USB ports, and a line-out for audio peripherals. It even has gold-plated USB connectors, something Monster Cables have used for years to justify their jacked-up prices. The keyboard… Read More

  • Gear4 SonicBoom PSP Speakers


    If iPods can get tens of speaker sets, why can’t the PSP? Gear4 agrees, and gives us the SonicBoom. The name is a bit of wishful thinking, but it will improve sound quality beyond the dinky little things built into your PlayStation Portable. The device has a 1/8-inch stereo jack for plugging into your PSP, but if you want to stick any old MP3 player in there, the SonicBoom… Read More

    Google’s Blogger.com, one of the trailblazers of the whole medium, is about to undergo a substantial upgrade that will improve its usability and help it catch up to the state of the art. You can preview the beta version at beta.blogger.com, but in my experience the beta system isn’t stable enough to use yet. You can check it out now though. Blogger users will be notified when… Read More

  • Blackberry 8100: Le Pearl

    If you’re wondering what the next BlackBerry available on T-Mobile will look like, then wonder no more. It’s called the BlackBerry Pearl (8100), and it looks mighty thin in comparison to other BlackBerry and QWERTY phones. Powerful enough to qualify as a BlackBerry, but designed for people who don’t wear clown-sized pants. New BlackBerry Pearl Shots! [Blackberry Cool] Read More

  • Logitech QuickCall USB Speakerphone

    In case just using your computer’s speakers and a webcam as a speakerphone wasn’t “high tech” enough for you, Logitech has their new QuickCall USB Speakerphone to allow you to make calls on any VoIP network. There’s a dual-microphone system on the speakerphone that somehow works to cancel out noise and give you better sounding audio. Problem is, your mother in Ohio… Read More
