• BlackBerry Storm video found, apparently taped using a Fisher Price PXL 2000

    This video, from CrackBerry went out to all Verizon employees in an effort to excite them in time for the BB Storm launch which may or may not happen very, very soon. I’m withholding judgment until I see this thing in real life. Generally, when it comes to BB I’m impressed when I use them for a while but am underwhelmed in the run-up. Read More

  • LiveBar Adds A Little Strip Of Community To Any Site

    LiveWorld is a publicly traded company that’s been around since 1996 and is best known for its white labeled social networks. These are online communities that LiveWorld helps clients build up around their existing brands, and they often take a good deal more time and effort to set up than communities created on top of self-service platforms like Ning or KickApps. However, LiveWorld… Read More

  • Ikonoskop A-cam dll: tiny, uncompressed 1080p for pros

    The options for shooting hi-def video are getting more and more diverse, and this thing is a good example of that. What exactly is this shape? Well, although the design might not win any awards (well, maybe — it’s quite small), the footage should look brilliant. It records 1080p up to 60fps and 12-bit color, but it outputs as an enormous series of DNG files — essentially… Read More

  • Rumor: Bungie, Rare announcing projects next week in Europe

    According to an “industry insider” who spoke to Gamer.tm, Bungie is set to make an announcement at a Microsoft event next week in Europe, but no other details were revealed. It’s plausible considering the fact that Microsoft put the kibosh on Bungie’s new project announcement at E3 because it needed its own event. Is it a new Halo title or something related to… Read More

  • Nintendo employees generate more profit per capita than Goldman Sachs

    According to some research done by the Financial Times, employees at Nintendo have generated an average of $1.6 million each during this last year of business. For comparison, the high-powered stockbrokers at Goldman Sachs each brought back a paltry $1.24 million each, and unlike Nintendo employees, ended up actually keeping almost half of it. Of course, this is a somewhat skewed measure due… Read More

  • Hammacher Schlemmer selling WowWee Rovio under the totally uncool name of Anywhere Home Sentry

    Just think of what you could do with the Hammacher Schlemmer Anywhere Home Sentry, or as we know it by and are going to refer to it as, the WowWee Rovio. You have full control over the $299, three-wheeled bot via an internet-connected browser and can even interact with those in sight of the Rovio thanks to a 640 x 480 video cam and a microphone / speaker setup. The three-wheel alignment… Read More

  • Amazon's IMDB Finally Adds Video Content. I'll Give It Three Stars

  • Razer Megalodon gaming headset: the Piranha's big brother

    You guys may have seen my Piranha review; I consider it a good deal as it has nice sound, a decent mic, and is pretty lightweight although it squishes your head somewhat. Well, the Piranha’s bigger, badder brother the Megalodon (after this joker) is going to be hitting the scene soon and it looks awesome. If they squeezed such great sound out of the Piranha’s limited frame, I… Read More

  • What’s on your list of all-time best Nintendo levels?

    Great piece over on OMG Nintendo about the top ten all-time best Nintendo levels. The staples are there like 8-4 from Super Mario Brothers, the Dark World (above video) from Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and Rainbow Road from Mario Kart. Oh, and let’s not forget Giant Land in SMB 3 – that was unreal at the time. What would you add? I’d probably add the final level… Read More

  • TC50(DemoPit): SmartTouch Brings A GUI To SMS

    iPhones and Blackberries with all-you-can-eat data plans may be commonplace in Silicon Valley, but for the vast majority of mobile phone users in the United States, data plans are still an unneeded luxury.

  • Dreamcast: It (was) thinking

    The Guardian has a pretty cool interview up with Peter Moore, president of EA Sports. Back in the day, he was head of Sega of America. In fact, he was the guy who killed the Dreamcast. As awesome as the Dreamcast was, maybe it’s a good thing it died; it served its purpose. It helped usher in the next-gen era of console gaming by supporting broadband capabilities. It could even be argued… Read More
