    Well, look at the beauty. Come 2009 PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will be flailing around the living room and knocking stuff over like those Wii owners.

  • Never lose your car, or harvested deer, again thanks to the Bushnell BackTrack

    The Bushnell BackTrack serves a simple, but important function. It allows users to mark a spot, digitally and not with bodily fluids of course, and then guides that person back to the original location. Sure, it’s a dumbed down flavor of GPS, but with an unintimidating feel ’bout it. The display is backlit and the whole device is weather resistant so you don’t have to… Read More

  • Video: Wii hacked to run copied games, no modchip necessary

    In a move that’ll surely cause a bit of controversy in the Nintendo Wii homebrew scene, a gent by the name of Waninkoko has released the above video of the Wii booting a copied-and-cracked ISO off of a burned DVD, no modchip necessary.

  • CrunchDeals: 80 Duracell AA batteries for $30

    If there are two truths I’ve learned throughout my storied 29.5 years, it’s that 1) Everybody needs batteries and 2) Not everybody loves Everybody Loves Raymond.

    Just in case you are in need of some circuit board pr0n this morning, the Peek has been disassembled for the whole world to see. It’s nice to see interior alumium plating behind the keyboard, but besides that, there isn’t anything groundbreaking. Comforting to know that your $99 investment can withstand some hot and heavy emailing though. Flickr via Make Read More

  • White HTC Touch Diamond on the way

    Just not feelin’ the black of the original HTC Touch Diamond, or even the flush, deep red back of Sprint’s release? How about white? I’m not sure why they kept the face of the device black. While it might look better in person, it looks unfinished in the product shots. We’ll know how it looks in person by sometime in October, when these guys are expected to make their… Read More

  • Oscar night to be ruined by digital TV switchover

  • Today in History: Steve Jobs returns to Apple

    It was 1997 and Apple was in dire straits. The company, under the leadership of Gil Amelio was looking like an also-ran.

Windows PCs were king. Windows 95 became the… Read More
