• Review: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the iPhone

    I’ve had a good two weeks or so with the iPhone version of the next chapter in the Star Wars saga and not much has changed from the demo version we saw at E3. You remember that don’t you? What we didn’t know about back then was the number of levels and the amount of skills that can be acquired throughout the game. You may want to stop reading in case you don’t want… Read More

  • DIY: Turn your car's tow hook into a camera mount

    (I’ll go ahead and make the warning before anybody gets too excited: according to a warning by the author of the guide, this modification may disable your air bags, as the car will think it’s being towed.) Ever wanted to take see how incredibly awesome and totally-not-boring the view is from the front of your car? For little more than a few bucks in hardware, a basic camera mount… Read More

  • BlackBerry Storm dummy models showing up in Verizon stores

    CrackBerry Forum user BBerry. got a little playtime with a Storm dummy tonight at VZW store and here’s what he had to say about it: I was at the verizon store and me and my dad were talking about upcoming phones and we were talking about the touch diamond & when the verizon guy shows us this thunder dummy he had laying around so i got to mess with it and boy is it heavyy, but the… Read More

  • Facebook for iPhone clicks over to version 2.0

    After Facebook rolled out v1.1 of their iPhone application, they promised that a bigger, badder v2.0 was in the works for September. They cut it pretty close, but they’ve kept their word. Just a few hours ago, the second major release of the Facebook application hit the App Store, bearing a whole new user interface and a slew of fresh features. With this latest release, they’ve… Read More

  • Acer TravelMate series notebooks now equipped with fastest, largest HDD

    Hahahahahahaha, I just noticed the Pixelmator watermark. Oh well. Today, Acer and Seagate announced that the TravelMate series of notebooks will now be equipped with 2.5-inch Seagate Momentus 5400.6 hard drives up to 500GB with a transfer rate of 87MB/s. The drives are ultra quiet because of SoftSonic fluid-dynamic bearing motors and they’re capable of withstanding 1,000 Gs of… Read More

  • Are camera phones poised to replace point and shoots?

    How long will it be before we’re no longer forced to lug around both a camera phone and a full-fledged standalone camera, “just in case” something truly photo-worthy goes down? According to LG, not too long. At a round table event in London last week, the company’s head of marketing stated that he sees no reason why camera phones couldn’t replace point and… Read More

  • Big Daddy costume with spinning drill hits eBay just in time for Halloween

    Okay, I’ll admit it. If I didn’t expect this to rocket out of my price range regardless of whether or not I posted about it, I’d probably be a jerk and keep it to myself so that I could stomp around my neighborhood as a Big Daddy come Halloween. We’ve seen a Big Daddy costume or two since Bioshock stormed the shelves last December, but I’m pretty sure this is… Read More

  • DIY: Convert your RPTV into a gigantic & tacky home theater

    So let’s say that you have a RPTV that’s a little on the small size and you want a bigger picture. This chap outlines everything he did to extend the size of screen to a 100-inches. Word of warning though, this hack involves ripping apart your TV and constructing a frame to house the new screen. Also, you have to wonder how acruate the colors will be when there is a large gap… Read More

  • Brando harnesses the power of the sun, charges your crap

    I can honestly say that I’d buy one of these things, but don’t the Solio solar chargers do the same thing? Oh, yeah, they do. Nevermind. Read More

  • Whole Travel Launches Rating System To Keep Eco-Friendly Hotels Honest

    The “green” incarnation of travel, called ecotourism, mandates that travelers minimize cultural, economic, and environmental impacts as much as possible to promote sustainability. But while there are thousands of hotels worldwide that promote themselves as “green”, many of them are only partially fulfilling these requirements – they might not be wasting energy… Read More

  • Today On MobileCrunch

    Not reading MobileCrunch yet? Why the heck not? While a MobileCrunch post or two might make the jump over to CrunchGear each day, there’s a ton of good stuff each day that you’ll only see on that side of the fence. Here’s some stuff you may have missed on MobileCrunch today: Sony Ericsson’s eco-friendly GreenHeart handset photographed LG KC780 promo shots make their… Read More

    eBay launched a new browser extension tool today that lets you highlight different products in Firefox or Internet Explorer and compare the pricing of those products on eBay.

    Can anyone in the audience translate? One more odd finding after the jump. Read More

  • NIN Edition of Tap Tap Revenge Brings Licensed Content To Apple's App Store

    In what may well stand as a defining moment in the maturation of Apple’s App Store, Tapulous has announced that it has partnered with the band Nine Inch Nails to release a premium version of its popular game Tap Tap Revenge some time in October. The application will include a NIN-centric theme, as well as over a dozen of the band’s songs from its last two albums. The partnership… Read More

    Haruo Suekichi made this. It is a watch. I am so totally over steampunk. Read More

  • Want Adobe CS4? Live in the UK? Better fly to the states

    This is fun. The off-the-shelf price in the US for Adobe CS4 is $2500. The price in the UK is £2300. What’s wrong with this picture? Either the dollar jumped in price a lot over the last couple days while I wasn’t looking (unlikely) or Adobe needs to stop outsourcing its accounting to toddlers. The difference between those prices is so great that the Inquirer points out that… Read More

  • Sweet camera case looks like a bowling ball bag

    I can tell you right now, if Seattle hears of this, it’s the only bag anyone will ever have. What with DSLRs on the uptick and irony being what it is here, I have a feeling that the Cha Cha Lounge and Linda’s will soon be packed with apparent bowlers, trying to find an inconspicuous way to look conspicuous. Or vice versa, I don’t know. I’m surprised I haven’t… Read More

  • GoodNiteLite: For the love of God, let me sleep… oh

    This odd nightlight is actually quite interesting. You set the “wake-up” time on this thing and plug it in in your kid’s room. You then explain to Junior that when the sleepy moon is shining it’s time to sleep. Then, when it’s time to wake, happy sunshine face lights up and you say it’s time to get up and bother you. This is a great tool for young kids who… Read More

  • September Madness

    Any college basketball fans who’ve been watching the bank failures and consolidations recently will understand and appreciate this September Madness chart. This was reportedly created by a general partner at Sansome Partners named Mark Slavonia. I wonder if the U.S. Congress will make it to the Final Four. Click for larger view. Read More
