  • Re-Rumor: SanDisk to be bought out by either Samsung or Toshiba

    Sandisk may be the target of yet another buy out attempt. Rumors are starting to go around again that both Samsung and Toshiba are looking to make an attempt. Analysts are skeptical, but no one knows anything for sure as none of the companies involved wanted to comment. Read More

  • iPod Shuffle headphones galore

    Well, one of our biggest issues with the Shuffle 2k9 is, of course, that you’re locked into using proprietary headphones. If you insist on getting one of these silly things, do yourself a favor and at least spring for a better pair of earbuds; of course, at that point you’ll be spending close to $100, and you may as well buy a Nano or baby Zune. But I digress. Soon lots of… Read More

  • "Premium" apps store coming to iPhone

    Rumor has it that a “Premium” version of the App Store will appear next week featuring more expensive and presumably better apps. This will allow more valuable apps to escape the 99 cent/free ghetto. Read More

  • CG is representing at SXSW


    Salutations, readers. John Biggs and I are here in Austin, Texas for the big SXSW Interactive extravaganza. It’s essentially an opportunity for Internet-minded folks to mingle, show off their wares, etc. It’s rainy and cold. But enough complaining! If any of you guys are at the show and would like to have a completely unorganized meetup—we’ll drink beverages in… Read More

  • New way to go "around the world" – the jet engine bed

    California-based Motoart repurposes aircraft parts into furniture and their latest creation is the 747 Jet Liner Bed. Created from the engine nacelle from a 747, their new bed features a round mattress and box springs. Just the thing for the…well, I have no idea who would want this. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Donut maker for $29.99

      For the cost of just thirty glazed sticks from Dunkin’ Donuts, I could start my own donut shop called Dunkin’ Doug’s Nuts! The BlinQ Donut Maker costs just $29.99 from Overstock.com and can make not four, not five, but SIX donuts in under three minutes. Yum. The machine bakes donuts instead of frying them, so if you eat all six you’ll be extra healthy. Read More

  • Video: Tiger Woods 10 gameplay demo

    Hot damn, Tiger Woods 10 for the Wii is looking better and better all the time. Jason Shenkman, EA Sports’ Senior Producer for Tiger Woods 10, gives us a gameplay overview and talks about some of the new features for the MotionPlus-enabled game. Read More

  • Tiger Tracker maps 3D meshes onto live tigers to identify them


    How cool is this? Wildlife researchers often set up hidden cameras, activated by motion, to catch animals like tigers cruising around the jungle. This software by the Wildlife Conservation Society looks at captured footage of tigers (or other animals with other programs) and analyzes it to produce a mesh which is unique to every individual tiger. It can then sort or analyze the footage… Read More

  • Whoa, Twitter Mania

    Maybe it is all the TV news mentions, but Twitter is seeing the growth in U.S visitors to its site accelerating. In February, 4 million people in the U.S. visited the site, up from 2.6 million the month before, according to the latest data from comScore. That represents a 55 percent month-over-month growth rate, compared to 33 percent growth in each of the two months prior. (ComScore has yet… Read More

  • Sony France CEO captured by workers, released upon capitulation

    Sony employees locked Sony France execs Serge Foucher and Roland Bentz in a meeting room for a night because they were upset about getting fired and not getting the same relocation package as other workers. After the CEO agreed to continue negotiations, the workers set him free. And it’s not the first time this has happened (or worked). Read More

  • Pentax X70 Megazoom now up for pre-order

    Pentax’s recent PMA announcement, the X70 megazoom ‘hybrid’, is now up for pre-order on the Pentax site. $400 gets you a 12-megapixel shooter with a 24x zoom lens. There’s no word one exact ship date, but it will ship later this month. Read More

  • Is YouTube Bringing Back The Upload Status Bar?

    Some things are so basic, there is just no excuse not to have them. For video-sharing sites, you’d think that a video upload status bar would be a standard feature—a progress bar that shows how much time you have left before your video is uploaded and ready for viewing. Yet YouTube just tells you to “Please Be Patient” while showing you an uploading icon that… Read More

  • Mockup: Nikon Coolpix concept

    Nikon’s Coolpix camera line has never really been that ‘cool’. Despite attempts from Ashton Kutcher to convince you otherwise, point and shoot cameras are rarely shaped in any innovative or creative ways. They usually look like a bar of soap with a lens sticking out of it. That being said, it’s always interesting when someone out of the mainstream comes up with a concept… Read More

  • Review: Logitech Harmony 1100

    Candybar remotes are just so boring and complicated with all of their buttons and whatnot, but large touchscreen remotes are pricey. Enter the Logitech Harmony 1100; a quasi-hybrid of the two options. Unfortunately, the melding of both doesn’t create a best of both worlds, but more like a jack of all trades and master of none. Logitech intro’d the 1100 predecessor a few years ago… Read More

  • Dyson presents smaller vacuums built for the Japanese market

    Dyson today took the wraps off compact versions of some of its vacuum cleaners that are specifically tailored to fit the smaller Japanese homes [JP]. Chairman James Dyson said in Tokyo although the vacuums are Japan-only at this point, they may be eventually made available in other markets as well. Read More

  • The Rules Apply To Everyone

    The Elliot Spitzer phenomenon is part of being human. For whatever reason, people who obtain power can convince themselves that the very rules they create and enforce don’t apply to them. Elliot Spitzer and his prostitutes. Al Gore flying carbon-spewing private jets. Countless others. Whether the transgressions are large or small, something clicks inside the brain of some people or… Read More

  • Review: Apple iPod Shuffle 2K9 with VoiceOver [Update]

    The latest iPod Shuffle to come out of Cupertino has a big hill to climb and, so far, things aren’t looking great. Any which way you look at it, this is a dud, but a magnificent one all the same. For starters, the price to storage ratio is skewed in the wrong direction. One quick look at Amazon and you’ll find a handful of 4GB MP3 players for much cheaper with screens, controls… Read More

  • HTC Maple to be revealed next month?

    HTC’s most BlackBerry-like device yet, the Maple (see previous coverage here) may poke its head out of wherever cell phones normally keep their heads at the CTIA conference in a couple weeks, according to DigiTimes. Read More
