  • Ben Heck inches closer to finishing 'Bill Paxton Pinball' machine

    When I interviewed modder extraordinaire Ben Heckendorn a couple of months ago, he mentioned that he’d been working on building a pinball machine from the ground up and that it’d be called “Bill Paxton Pinball” when all is said and done. While it’s not quite together yet, Heckendorn has made some serious progress on the actual cabinet itself, which now includes… Read More

  • Let The Google Billboard Spoof Videos Begin

    The massive Google billboard campaign underway now to promote Google Apps is the best spoof opportunity since the comic book announcing Google Chrome last year (here was our effort). And the first ones are starting to roll in. Here’s the spoof, followed by the official version. Can you do better? We want to see it. Spoof: Read More

  • Some Nikon D300s videos for your perusal

    The Nikon D300s, at $1800, represents a good option for serious prosumer photographers who don’t want or need a full-frame camera like the 5D mkII. Now that it shoots video, it’s an even more serious contender — but does it have the same rolling shutter/skew/jell-o-vision as the D90 and other DSLR video? Check out these two videos and see for yourself. Read More

  • CEA members don't like carting away garbage, try to beat NYC recycling laws

    The CEA represents the CE industry and runs CES. The CE industry likes to make and ship thing but it doesn’t like to recycle them. Therefore, in the proud tradition of astroturfing, it’s fighting back against New York City Local Laws 13 and 21 of 2008 which, in a nutshell, says that all CE manufacturers must pick up and recycle broken or obsolete equipment. Obviously CE… Read More

  • Another Startup Falls Prey To The iPhone/Google Voice Crossfire

    If you’ve been paying attention to the tech news at all over the last week, you’re already very familiar with the outrage that Apple has sparked over its rejection of Google Voice for the App Store, and its ban of all third-party applications that tap into the service.

  • DIY balancing scooter will make you the envy of geeks everywhere

    I admit it: I would love to have a Segway. Yes, I realize they’re not really all that practical for everyday life in Columbus, OH. Yes, I realize they make you look like a total nerd. I’m prepared to reconcile both of those facts against what I perceive as the unadulterated fun of riding such a contraption. Unfortunately, I don’t have the cash to buy a Segway. If I had… Read More

  • The Nikon S1000PJ projector camera leaks out along with three other Coolpix models

    We always knew that Nikon was a leaking ship, adrift in the digital camera sea, but this latest leak proves it. Why bother with embargos and NDAs when most of the info leaks out early anyway. First, it was the D5000, then the D300s and now all these Coolpix cameras that aren’t official yet. This is what we know so far though. Read More

  • Sparks fly as Spark Ventures disagrees with shareholder on future

    Spark Ventures PLC, formerly NewMediaSpark, is an early-stage venture capital investor, operating in Europe for the last 12 years. That makes it an old timer on this nascent scene. But today its third-largest shareholder urged fellow stakeholders to vote against a proposed management buyout. Venture Wire reports that Vine Street Capital, which has an 8% stake, believes the deal is undervalued… Read More

  • Motorola Clutch now in "Graphite" on Boost Mobile

    Lets face it: one look at the Motorola Clutch i465 is all it takes to know if it’s your thing or not. It’s not the prettiest handset on the block by anyone’s take, but it is the only one packing both iDEN (Push-to-talk) and a QWERTY keyboard. Its target audience was already fairly small; take everyone who wants a cell phone, then strip that down to those who want a… Read More

  • Netbook Fight! Gateway LT3103 versus Acer Aspire One 751h

    In the search for affordable 11.6-inch netbooks, you have a couple of enticing choices in the Acer Aspire One 751h and the Gateway LT3103.

  • More photos of the Praesto Fliegeruhr

    As you know I’m really in love with the Praesto Fliegeruhr. It’s a mechanical automatic watch with nice lume and great styling and it’s not much more expensive than a similar quartz Tissot. Sure it’s a Miyota movement but that’s better than some of the crap they put inside these things. I got some great new pictures and a production run for the new models coming up… Read More
