• The Logitech Speaker Lapdesk N550 Includes Speakers For Your Listening Pleasure

    The latest Logitech lapdesk is somewhat novel. Sure, it’s still a lapdesk with the primary purpose of protecting your naughty bits from toasted skin syndrome, but it does a little extra with a speakers. Up top are two USB-powered stereo speakers. Now, these things probably aren’t known for their audio fidelity, but they should be better than your notebook’s stock speakers. Read More

  • CrunchGear BFF: SwissBike TX

    From CrunchGear BFF Snow:
    Picked this up off of (caution: autoplaying video) and thought people might think it’s cool. “The SwissBike TX is a full-size bike (26″ wheel) that folds to fit in the back of a Mini Cooper.

  • Review: Iceman PC

    From BFF: A few months ago I won (via CrunchGear) a nice piece of hardware that now replaces the veteran hdd divx player I bought from Hong Kong about the same time last year. The enclosure was much more reliable than the other “made in china” (sic) stuff I bought back then, but somehow its remote died this summer and it’s not that fun to pause/play/stop using the… Read More

  • The BFF Files: LittleRed gets no remote

    A tale of woe from BFF: My office received a box from AT&T today. We hadn’t ordered anything from them so we were a bit confused by it (we host our production website at an AT&T data center). The outside of the box had this on it If you can’t read it says “Time to take control of evolving data storage needs” and has a picture of a race car on it. We opened… Read More

  • BFF call for help: Cool Blackberry apps?

    Ryan writes: I’ve posted a lot of comments regarding my fanboydom towards the blackberry. Other than the large amount of MAPI calls made to an exchange server I see nothing wrong with a blackberry on a BES for any business user, technical or non technical. That being said I’m once again carrying a crackberry after two years with a Q, I’m very excited about it and am totes… Read More

  • BFF review:

    This morning I got my Newsletter and despite the fact that the page anchors don’t work in Gmail, I read (skimmed) the first paragraph and decided to try the service they were promoting, Jott. The link in the email took me to a Palm page with a longer article that I didn’t actually read and no quick and easy way to get to what ever Jott was going to make me do to use it… Read More

  • BFF Skorch on what he (she?) hates about Linux

    Over on BFF, Skorch has posted a fairly well thought out rant on a few things he really hates about Linux. What’s great is that it’s not just “Linux sux! lolz!” flamebait, but actual good reasons that Linux isn’t all that and a bag of soggy Oreos. I personally feel that Linux is like Volkswagens: They’re OK for some people, but not for me. Take it away, Skorch. Read More

  • BFF Jaxim's Zune requests good enough for CrunchGear

    Over on BFF, user Jaxim has posted a really terrific piece for our Blind Review contest on what the Zune could use to make it even better. Not that it’s a dis on the Zune; Jaxim starts by saying that he’d still take one over an iPod Classic, but he makes several good points that the guys at Bear Creek might want to think about. It’s a great read, and not just a good entry in… Read More

  • BFF Post: Women gamers wanted – perhaps a bit too much…

    Great post by JAS on women in gaming. As in any industry, when it get’s big it only wants to get bigger. How do you do this? Easy. Find what demographics are not the biggest fans and make something to convert them into fans. The question is, when your weakest demographic becomes the majority target will the majority suffer? Women. Women have consistently been targeted as the… Read More

  • Western Union is not decadent or depraved

    In an effort to bring some of our BFF content to the main site, we present a quick paen to Western Union by Marswoo. This got me excited when I first read it from Google Adsense’s Blog. As a web publisher based in the Philippines, waiting for my Adsense checks every month was not only agonizing but also fearful. Agonizing because it usually took the second week of the month for the check… Read More

  • Introducing CrunchGear BFF

    We here at CrunchGear were thinking. We do that infrequently, preferring to allow our reptilian forebrains to react quickly and forcefully to stimuli. But we ended up thinking and we wanted to offer a forum or message board but didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing. After snapping at a passing fly, we decided to create BFF, a blog-like entity that lets you, the reader, post… Read More
