    Things aren’t looking too good for Apple in Japan today after it was reported that first-gen nanos have been smoking and/or sparking causing minor burns.

  • FCC outs MOTOROKR S7-HD Jay-Z bluetooth headphones

    Good ‘ol FCC. You are peering at the MOTOROKR S7-HD Jay-Z headphones. Clearly, this ugly set is not after the same market as Sony’s new stylish digs, but at least these have bluetooth work’n for ’em. Plus, Moto managed to stuff a microphone in the headset somewhere. Too bad they couldn’t stuff some style in ’em too. No word on price or availability; the… Read More

  • Dell kind of bites the bullet on faulty GeForce M rigs

    Dell is offering a 12-month warranty extension for those of you suffering (or about to suffer) from faultily manufactured GeForce GPUs on your laptops. Their previous solution was to fool the BIOS into turning the fans up all the time, thus preventing overheating at the cost of noise and wear and tear — not really the best trade-off. So now they’re essentially saying… Read More

  • German teens unfairly busted for being awesome

    Not actually the actual chair the teens actually built in actuality. Two 17-year olds in Germany got busted on Saturday for tooling around town on their undeniably awesome office chair outfitted with a lawnmower engine and bike brakes.

  • Apple kills the MobileMe status blog, starts up MobileMe News

    We mentioned last week that the MobileMe blog had been awfully silent lately, which lead us to wonder if it had been nixed. Sure enough, ol’ David G. updated the blog one final time to let everyone know that, after just three posts, they’d be flipping the switch. They’re not killing communications all together, however – they’re just making the jump from bloggers… Read More

  • Songsterr: A Flash Guitar Tab Player That Might Rock, Someday

  • Review: Maestro Dobel Tequila

    We’re a gadget blog, true, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get a mean drink on when we’re cornered.
