  • Mod your old NES into a DVD player

    Yes! This is awesome. Of course, anything related to modding an NES is awesome. Personally, I don’t watch DVDs that much — or if I did, the player’s guts wouldn’t fit into a Nintendo. Still, this is a cool mod and if you have a non-working NES sitting around (that you don’t feel like fixing), it won’t run you more than $40 or $50. Now if I were modding an… Read More

  • Some guy: Go naked to the Beijing Olympics

    David Rice, an expert in the process of creating hysterical hype that is attractive to second-tier Washington, DC newspapers run by the Moonies, states that the Chinese will steal your crap and leave you for dead unless you buy a new, disposable camera, cellphone, and laptop.

  • Samsung i7110 phone surfaces

    Photos for Samsung’s new i-series phone surface along with some details. Rumored details, that is; Samsung has not confirmed. For a rumor though, that’s a pretty nice photo. All this time I thought it was required for them to be blurry. The business class, Symbian-powered i7110 will incorporate multimedia functions on its QVGA display. An expansion slot for a microSD card will… Read More

The $699 OutCast speaker… Read More

  • The new Sonos controller… under water!

    I think what they’re trying to say in this video is that the new Sonos CR100 remote is completely water proof which means you can can leave it by the pool next to that bottle of Jack Daniels without worrying that your “house guests” might drop it into the deep end. Note: you can probably stop watching this at about the 2 minute mark. Read More

  • Images of Nokia Tube keep on comin'

    I’m not really sure what to make of these images. They’re clearly showcasing the Tube‘s Web browser, but images clearly don’t do anything to get us excited about this device. How about some video, dailymobile.se? Read More
