  • Solar powered iPhone 3G case is awesome, ugly

    I dislike cases for phones as much as I loathe Bluetooth headsets, but the battery life on the iP3G stinks and I’m willing to break one of my rules. I won’t actually use the case and clip it onto my belt because I’m against that too, but I will keep it in my gear bag or pocket. There isn’t a whole lot to this case other than it having a 1500 mAh battery that’s… Read More

  • Video: Worst promo video ever

    [ Here’s the thing about making videos for your products, CE folk, make sure people are aware of whatever it is that you’re selling.

You’re eyes are being pulled in by the cleavage on the woman who seriously needs a new… Read More

  • iPhone case makers "leak" some iPhone 3G specs

    It seems that some iPhone accessory makers have been working off of reference designs, shown here, that describe some sort of new iPhone. While no one is sure if this is the 3G model, the level of detail is fairly compelling — excelt for the image of the bottom with no speaker holes. Remember that case makers thrive on be able to launch product as soon as the device is available, which… Read More

  • Transformers All Spark-style USB hub

    If you loved the (most recent) Transformers Movie, now’s your chance to show it. Buy a huge cube designed to look like the artifact from the movie. It’s got four USB slots and when you plug in a device, the cube will say some Transformers-related line like “We must protect the All Spark!” or “Bah weep granah weep ninnibon!” — well, maybe not that… Read More

  • Sweet arcade stick for the Wii – time to get your Samurai Shodown on!

    Having trouble with that →↓↘SHORYUKEN? We all have these problems now and again, usually because of the fact that almost every arcade game gets played with a joystick, then gets ported to your SNES or whatever and you have to use a weak little D-pad. Nobody every won a Street Fighter competition with a D-pad, and it’s so much easier to play stuff like Metal Slug in the arcade with… Read More

  • Is your PC Card slot occupied? Didn't think so

    The Stash Card is a novel idea, but I wouldn’t keep anything valuable in it like the manufacturer suggests. The rest of the suggestions work out quite nicely. It’s only $8. Why not? Product Page [via jkontherun] Read More

  • Sing-a-Song Microphone: make your kid do the work so you can retire early

    Kid toys aren’t really our beat unless it’s something spectacular like Glow Worms or My Little Pony, but the whole American Idol and even Rock Band craze isn’t going away anytime soon, so you might as well groom that little bundle of joy for a career in rock ‘n roll. The Sing-a-Song microphone gets a mention because you can connect your iPod or any MP3 player to it and… Read More

  • Review: Richard Solo Smart Backup Battery for iPod

    My kingdom for a dead-ass simple way to squeeze a little more juice out of my iPod Touch while I’m gallivanting across the globe living the life of a high-profile technology blogger. I need all the battery life I can get while I’m flying in fancy airplanes to conventions in such exotic locales as Las Vegas, Las Vegas and, of course, Las Vegas. So does the Richard Solo (made by… Read More

  • Belkin's RockStar allows 5 hipsters to listen to LCD Soundsystem simultaneously

    Y-jacks are so 20th century; you need a brightly colored, star-shaped megahub so all your fellow tweens can hear what you’re listening to and bob their heads in unison. It’s actually a cool little device, I’d love to have it for watching videos with friends at a coffee shop, or for editing video in a bar (yes, I do that). It’s also got the added bonus of having… Read More

  • What I'm getting Matt Hickey for Xmas

    I think I’ve just found the perfect gift for Matt. I want to vomit every time I see one of his photos with that yellow tinge and I’m sure his colorblindness doesn’t help the situation any, but I think this will seal the deal. The Lumiquest Soft Screen is a cheapish diffuser for DSLRs with a pop-up flash. I need to get one for myself, too. It’s only £9.99, but you may… Read More

  • The most asinine iFone accessory known to man

    Oddly enough, I’m almost 100 percent positive that Biggs uses this when he’s at home by himself. Seriously, though, who comes up with this nonsense? Condoms for your thumb and index finger so you don’t smudge your precious iFones. This is more or less a clear indication that the world is teetering on the verge of collapsing around us. The Phone Fingers are textured (and… Read More

  • BodyGuardz For Your iPhone

    I’m not sure how many of you are overzealous about your gadgets like me, but if I were to actually own an iPhone, chances are I’d invest in some protective wear for my precious. Just to show you how dorky I am about my gear I’ll tell you what’s on the screen of my Sidekick 3. Packing tape. It fits perfectly onto the screen and I only have to trim the corners. I’m… Read More

  • Targus Radius Line

    MacBook sales have been skyrocketing since they launched, so it’s no wonder the accessory market for the little Apple is so vast and chock-full of crap that you could be blowing your cash on something that will inevitably disappoint you.

  • External Display For Your PS3, Why?

    File this under WTF because I have no idea why anyone would want this. It’s not like the PS3 is the most compact gaming console on the market or anything. The only time I would think of using this 7-inch TFT LCD is when some douchebag is watching the TV and won’t move his fat ass. This is the only acceptable time to use such a thing, right? The display mounts to the top of the… Read More
