• Review: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 (Wii) with MotionPlus

    Short Version: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 with the Wii MotionPlus accessory is the closest you can get to a true golf simulation for $60. The already-great series gets a nice boost this year with true one-to-one motion sensing, addictive online play, and a bevy of other new features that easily justify the purchase. Read More

  • Dai Nippon's organic solar cells pave way for cheaper solar energy

    I think everyone agrees that using solar energy is generally a good thing to do, but there are usually two problems: cost and effective conversion rates (sun light to solar energy). Now Tokyo-based Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) has developed an organic thin-film solar cell that does away with the need for using (expensive) silicon for the production of these cells. And it’s relatively… Read More

  • Laptop sleeve features built-in mouse pad

    File this one under “Ideas, Good” and wonder why is hasn’t been done before. Actually it may very-well have been done before but just in case it hasn’t, here’s a padded laptop sleeve that, when opened, provides a nice big mousepad. Read More

  • Android Users Are Stickier Than iPhone Users

    No, no – that headline wasn’t intended as commentary on the hygiene of Android users (though if a good chunk of the Android devotees I know are any indication, it very well could be. Zing!) Earlier this morning, mobile analytics group Flurry gave us an exclusive sneak peek at their Smart Phone Industry Pulse report for June. Flurry’s June report harvests data from 1,100… Read More

  • Twitterholics in Serbia will like their new URL shortener

    Ikr.me (ikrme mean “iHog”) is the first Serbian URL shortener. Ok, so it’s the only Serbian URL shortener, but hey… The guy behind the project is Predrag Stojadinovic, known from his previous work on MojID.rs, the first serbian OpenID provider. There is an emerging wave of Twitter and Friendfeed users in Serbia, and they are likely to make hay with this new… Read More

  • Bay drops a gaggle of Transformers 2 "Fun Facts" and he's not quitting the franchise

    So that’s Ravage in case you were wondering. I thought it was Voltron at first. Anyway, the Bay posted a list of “Fun Facts” about the upcoming Transformers sequel on his blog the other day and I felt the need to share with the rest of you nerds. It’s actually a pretty interesting list. For example, Transformers 1 took up 20TB of space and Revenge of the Fallen takes… Read More

  • CrunchDeals: HP LX195 for $375 with a free 1TB external HDD

    The only beef I have with the HP LX195 is the price for the amount of storage. Newegg must have heard my cries as the retailer is now throwing in an Western Digital My Book Essential 1TB USB external hard drive. That means, you can get 1.67 TB of storage in a Windows Home Server for only $375. Now that’s a deal, but you better hurry as it ends on 6/25/09. Don’t forget that we… Read More

  • In Its Rush To Offer A Persian Version, Did Facebook Violate Its Terms Of Service?

    Yesterday evening, Facebook hurriedly launched a Persian (Farsi) version of the site for users in Iran. Following the past week’s events surrounding the Iranian elections and subsequent protests, Facebook felt that there was an immediate need to provide a Farsi version of the social network as an act of solidarity with the citizens of that country. But this recent move may be in violation… Read More

  • Austria – There are startups in them there mountains!

    With only 8 million people, Austria is not exactly a large country in Europe and until recently the country’s Web/Tech Scene has been correspondingly small. However, it’s getting there. A number of startups have turned up in recent Seedcamps in Berlin and Ljubjana, Slovenia and in fact three Austrian start ups were chosen as finalists in the former city. Years ago this would have… Read More

  • Finally, a way to simultaneously mount all your favorite gadgets in the car

    Perhaps your daily commute is so boring that you need three gadgets to keep you entertained on your way to work. Funny, though, that not even the manufacturer of this triple gadget mount could find a third gadget to include in the photo. I might suggest a digital camera in the third slot so you can take photos of yourself while you’re weaving in and out of traffic. Read More

  • The iPhone 3G S has landed

    Yes, the major media figure on the Internet has an iPhone 3G S. On initial examination, I’d safely say that this if you’re planning on getting an iPhone with a new contract, go ahead. The price is right and the features are great. Everything on this phone is snappier – Maps especially – and the auto-focus and video uploads passed the wife test who said that this is… Read More

  • This week StudiVZ won a battle against Facebook – will they lose the war?

    If you’re living in Germany, you may have heard of Plagiarius, a jokey, negative awards event. The awards are “given to those companies that the jury has found guilty of making ‘the most flagrant’ design imitations.” Looking through this year’s winners, you’ll find a trolley, a door handle, a watering can, amongst others. Of course, but for these… Read More

  • iFixit tears down the 3G S

    Here are some comments from iFixIt’s tear down of the 3G S. Theirs also included a girl. * Thankfully, opening the iPhone 3G S is as simple as the 3G. After
    removing two Phillips screws, the two halves of the phone are separated
    easily using a suction cup. * The iPhone is differentiated externally only by a new model number,
    A1303. The lettering on the back is now shiny, like the… Read More

  • Want A Super Cheap iPhone 3G S? Bing It.

    In honor of the iPhone 3G S launch today, I thought I’d point out a humorous little deal circulating around the web. Apparently, you can use Microsoft’s Cashback program that it runs through its search engine (and now through Bing), to get a healthy 35% discount off of the device. Depending on your eligibility for AT&T’s subsidy (more on that here), that means you can get… Read More

  • Viliv X70 preorder deals announced by Dynamism

    Do you want the Viliv X70 UMPC? You should, it rocks. Dynamism is gearing up for the launch of the mobile PC by announcing a special kit for the first 777 preorders. The presale will start on July 6th at 1pm EST so be sure to mark your gCal. The X70’s little brother, the S5, went very fast and this model will probably go quicker. Read More

  • YouTube Search Gets The Wonder Wheel

    YouTube search now has its own Wonder Wheel. The Wonder Wheel is a visual navigation tool which Google first rolled out on its main search page a month ago when it added some new search options to filter results in different ways. If you do a search on YouTube, which on its own would be the second largest search engine in the world, you will see a new option under the search box on the… Read More

  • Activision to drop Sony PS3, PSP support?

    In an interview with The Times Online, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick made it very clear that if Sony does not lower the price of the PS3 then the games publisher will cease support for the console. Read More

  • So what do you think of your iPhone 3G S?

    Photo Credit: Jae Won Joh The sun cracked over the horizon, and off we went. Like any good Apple fan boys bloggers, we camped out (in multiple places around the country, even) to pick up our iPhone 3G S. We’ll have our final, non-rushed review up sometime in the next few days – in the mean while, it’s time for you to voice up. We’ve got our opinions, forged from the… Read More

  • Microsoft Tells Its Rude IE8 Campaign To "Get Lost"

    For the past few days, we’ve been digging in pretty deep against Microsoft for its odd way it’s trying to push IE8 online. And we were hardly the only ones. Apparently, Microsoft was listening. Today, it has changed the worst of those campaigns, the “Ten Grand Is Buried Here” one, to remove the restriction that required you use IE8 to have a chance to win the money. Read More
