• TomTom teams up with Fujitsu Ten for one expensive ass semi-embedded PND

    TomTom and Fujitsu Ten have announced the ECLIPSE AVN4430 in-dash nav system and it’s pretty darn expensive at $850. But, I’m not sure how much in-car GPS units go for from manufacturers so correct me if I’m wrong. The plus side is that you can remove the TomTom GPS unit whenever you please and use it elsewhere. It sports a 4.3-inch screen and controls all of your… Read More

  • MOG Has Created The Ultimate Streaming Music App; Too Bad It May Never Launch

    MOG demo’d the next version of their popular music service to me today, and I was impressed. It combines a best of breed interface with free on demand streaming and a Pandora-like music recommendation engine. The trouble is, it may never launch because only two of the four major music labels are supporting it so far. MOG has a history of doing cool new things around music. The service… Read More

  • Linksys announces Media Hub NAS with browser-based streaming

    Having a ton of cool crap on your network storage is useless if you can’t get to it, and that seems to be the main problem Linksys is aiming to tackle with their just announced Media Hub. Take your standard network storage box – now slap on an LCD screen (in the mid/high-end models) and a fancy browser-based content portal, and you’ve got the Linksys Media Hub. Look for it in… Read More

  • T-Mobile pulls the trigger on the BlackBerry 8900, finally

    Rumors have been floating for weeks now and we knew the 8900 would be coming sometime in early ’09 and tonight T-Mobile has made it official. However, the 8900 aka Curve II aka Javelin will not be hitting store shelves on the 11th or 18th according to the press release. T-Mobile is being coy and saying it’s coming sometime this month. It could happen on those dates, but… Read More

  • Hitachi reveals CES line up, filled with thin TVs, Blu-ray camcorders and such

    Isn’t this fun? At this rate we’ll have CES covered before the whole team is even on the ground. Hitachi has announced that they will be showing ultra thin prototype TVs this year at CES. Yay! More uber thin prototype TVs just like last year. Please excuse my sarcasm, I really can’t wait to get to CES and see the rest of the gang. Anyway, Hitachi will have a 50-inch 35mm… Read More

  • CES 2009: Brief hands-on with HP's Dv2

    This thing just popped up on the radar yesterday, and I really liked the look of it. I saw it at the HP booth at Unveiled, and thought I’d take a quick video. They do a really good job of keeping the lighting nice and dim in the ballroom, so it should be blurry and orangey. Couple extra pictures, too. Read More

  • Asus Eee Keyboard: what your home theater system has been missing

    OMG. This is without a doubt my favorite gadget I’ve seen or heard about all day. This beauty is a fully functional PC that features wireless HDMI, a full QWERTY keyboard, and a mini secondary touchscreen. No specs, pricing or availability info yet, but click on for more pics. Read More

  • Use Otalo To Search For Vacation Rentals

    Vacation rentals are big business. HomeAway, which owns a dozen or so vacation home listing sites, just raised $250 million in a venture round that values the company at more than $1 billion. But listings are spread across lots of sites – what the industry needed was a good central search engine for all those vacation home rentals. It’s also a pain to do lots of searches on… Read More

  • Buffalo releases new NAS with iPhone support

    Buffalo Technology has announced a new redesigned version of their LinkStation Pro NAS device. This new version adds iPhone compatibility to one that already featured easy backup software, security and USB ports for expansion. Read More

  • REDFLY goes Android.. sort of

    As a CPU-less, OS-less, storage-less extension of Windows Mobile handsets, the REDFLY is a topic of a fair share of debate; is it a useful godsend, or useless bunk? No one really seems to be on the fence about it – you either love the idea immediately, or just don’t see the ppoint. As Devin of CG put it in his (positive) review, “if you need convincing, it’s probably… Read More

  • Eco-Friendly Mac Bags from Targus

    Targus has released a line of eco-friendly bags for the 15″ MacBook Pro that they are calling Spruce EcoSmart. Read for all the details and a full press release. Read More

  • AOL Exec Kevin Conroy Out After Product Empire Dismantled

    AOL’s EVP of Products and Marketing Kevin Conroy is leaving to take a new position at Univision. This isn’t much of a surprise – we speculated on his future back in July when he announced (internally) the shuttering of four of his products (Xdrive, AOL Pictures, Bluestring and MyMobile). That still left him with AOL Mail, MYAOL, the AOL client, Userplane and Truveo, among others. Read More

  • Logitech grabs seven CES Innovation awards

    Logitech announced today that it has won seven 2009 CES Innovation awards for excellence in design and engineering, making this the second year in a row that Logitech has won seven CES Innovation awards. Click on if you care to read the press release. Read More

  • CES 2009 Prep: The Things We'll Carry

    CES can be a lot of fun, but it’s a whole friggin’ lot of work, too. Meetings, press announcements, booth tours, darting back and forth from hall to hall, show floor to hotel, and a whole lot of trekking around the show floor in search of diamonds in the rough. Media attendees probably walk more in the four days of CES than most people walk in a month – all while wearing… Read More

  • Oh, look at that, it's Sony's VAIO P

    Engadget believes this to be the VAIO P. No one can verify or deny this claim because AOL didn’t pay for us to be the ‘official blog of CES’ or whatever it is they are. So, we’re not privy to the hallowed grounds of the LVCC until the 8th. That double wide trailer would be nice, though. Read More

  • D-Link expands ‘Network Video Recorder’ offering

    D-Link announced two new products today, something they are calling a “networked video recorder,” or NVR, system. This is intended mainly for small business surveillance, however I’m sure there would be some crossover to the home market. Read More

  • Spyball: Capture the face of God

    Throw this to the heavens and trigger its eye. Send the robotic ball into the deepest caves and have it take photographs of his swart majesty. Expand your mind and let the ball roll in. The WowWee Spyball will let you watch anything anywhere over a Wi-Fi connection – basically has a web server built in. You can even control it remotely. Read More

  • IntelliScanner Mini: What the heck?

    I might be drinking too much tonight but isn’t this teeny scanner a bit too small? Oh, wait… it’s a barcode scanner. I see now. Anyway. The Intelliscanner Mini is basically the smallest barcode scanner in the whole wide world and could, potentially, be a choking hazard. It costs $179 online for the Media version (for scanning books) and $249 for the all-inclusive package. Read More

  • Pharos Traveler 137: What the Garmin GPS phone should have been

    I’m totes down with the Traveler 137, the latest GPS phone from Pharos. I’ve used their GPS devices for years now and this one looks like a worthy addition to the pack. Sadly, it’s a bit pricey: $599.95. It’s completely unlocked, though and runs on any GSM network. Read More
