  • Skimmers Are Now Grabbing Your Credit Card Data At The Door

    Skimmers Are Now Grabbing Your Credit Card Data At The Door

    Just when you thought you were safe, the card skimmers are at it again. This time they’re placing their card readers inside the door locks that require you to dip your card before you can enter an ATM vestibule. According to Brian Krebs, the scammers hide the readers inside the comparatively unnoticed locks and then add a small hidden camera around the ATM. They grab your card data via… Read More

  • Casio Updates G-Shock Bluetooth Line With Added Functionality

    Casio Updates G-Shock Bluetooth Line With Added Functionality

    Don’t call it a smart watch. The Casio GB line appeared in 2011 with little fanfare – it was up against devices like the Pebble in the public imagination and so an underpowered smartwatch was of little interest. However, Casio has updated their Bluetooth line with the GB-6900B And GB-X6900B, improved versions of their iconic G-Shock watches that allow you to control your phone… Read More

    With summer coming and surf season in full swing, I thought I’d take a closer look at the Casio EMA100-1AV Edifice watch with tide graph and moon-phase data. Casio is best known for their G-Shock line of beefy (and some would say ugly) plastic sports watches so this steel-cased model is a departure for the brand. Casio announced the watch in April and it is on sale now for $250. Read More

As far as smart watches go, the Casio is a little barebones: it syncs with iPhone to provide alerts for inbound emails and phone calls, and also helps you find misplaced devices by… Read More

  • Japan's Newest Cute Camera: Doraemon's Bell×CASIO EXILIM EX-Z800

    Another month, another special edition camera from Casio: this time it’s blue cartoon cat Doraemon (super-popular in Japan and many countries in Asia) that gets the Exilim treatment. Technically, the so-called Doraemon’s Bell×CASIO EXILIM EX-Z800 [JP] is nothing special, but it’s – as you can easily see – designed to be a hit with kids. Read More

  • Casio "Diver-Inspired" Baby-G Watch Is A Jam For The Ladies

    Casio is perfectly content to rest on their laurels. Their G-Shock line is inexplicably popular, the ladies love them some Baby-G, and every year a new cohort of customers graduates into some of their nicer models. That’s why I’m pleased to see this cleverly designed and relatively cheap Baby-G. It costs $160 and will be available this June in time for “water sports”… Read More

  • Casio Edifice EQWM1100DC-1A2 Watch Review

    While this watch dial in action looks like a miniature aerial view of an amusement park, something is actually going on – this isn’t all for show.

To be honest I never thought such a thing could… Read More
