  • Man alive, 15 Xbox mods that are marginally impressive!

    Oh, lists. Nothing is quite as boring as the “Top 10 Who Cares of Current Year.” (Speaking of which, we’re wrapping up our own end-of-the-year lists right now. Look for them next week!) Speaking of lists, Unreality Magazine, which seems to be where lists go to die (“Most Soul Sucking Video Games,” “Best Movie Gunfights,” “Memorable Movie… Read More

  • How to ease your girlfriend into liking beer (plus bonus grammar challenge!)

    I’d say 90 percent of the staff here is one weekend bender away from a one-way trip to the Betty Ford Center. But beer doesn’t merely ruin lives, no sir. It can, apparently, ruin relationships, too! That is, unless you follow the advice of The Frisky, a new women’s site that was just brought to my attention. They’ve put together a list of 10 so-called “gateway… Read More

  • Peek E-mail Device tops TIME’s Gadget of the Year poll

    The results are in for TIME Magazine’s Gadget of the Year poll and the Peek E-mail Device has been rated highest by TIME readers, taking the top spot. It beat out the iPod Touch, the Eye-Fi SD Card, the Flip Mino, and the T-Mobile G1. I reviewed the Peek in September and found it to work well but wondered if it’d be able to gain any traction in a world full of affordable smartphones. Read More

  • SmartShopper digital list maker gets $50 price drop

    Back in July of 2007, some of you may recall that your good buddy Doug wrote a post about the $150 SmartShopper device titled SmartShopper Needs $147 Price Drop to be Competitive, wherein I compared the utility of a device that voice-records your shopping list to that of a $3 pad of paper from OfficeMax. My general position was that $150 was too much to pay for something that keeps a list… Read More

  • Miyamoto, other tech folk make Vanity Fair's New Establishment list


    Photo from Wired Vanity Fair, the fanciest trashy magazine there is, has publishedwhat is calls “The New Establishment,” a list of 100 of the top movers and shakers across all industries. It’s essentially a “who’s hot now” list, but since it’s Vanity Fair, all the Manhattan media types will be fawning over the ranking. Drudge has the full list in… Read More

  • CrunchArcade: Highly unreadable list of the best PSP games you've never heard of

    You know the short story (and novel) Flowers for Algernon? You know, the one where the guy WROTE IN ALL CAPS instead of using quotation marks like a learned man? This list of the “best PSP games you’ve never heard of” totally reminds me of it. The games, for the record, are Chili Con Carnage, Work Time Fun and Crush. Take this description for Chili Con Carnage: This game… Read More

  • The laser turns 48 years young today


    Let freedom ring The laser turns 48 today! (Just as important, if not more so: It’s also Megan Fox’s birthday. She turns 22.) Crazy! To celebrate this, Wired has put together a list of some of its best laser-related stories, everything from laser-etched iPhones to 100 kW Naval weapons. No, it’s nothing to get too excited over, but perhaps you have nothing better to do on… Read More

  • Blast Knuckles self-defense accessory delivers 1.9 million volts (!?)


    Raiden? Cracked.com went out of business in 2010 for being too funny for its own good. But one time, in 2008, it came up with a list of safety-themed gadgets that no self-respecting someone would be caught dead without. You wouldn’t be dead because you had these gadgets to defend yourself, obviously. I’ll mention only one here, these Blast Knuckles, because the name alone actually… Read More

  • CES Leavings: The things they carried


    I was planning on posting this last week but Hickey didn’t send back his list so I decided to add my own. Essentially, I thought it would be cool to see what the CG crew was carrying during CES, offering a glimpse into the one-man-band that is a professional blogger these days. Take a look at our list and give us some recommendations for better/lighter/cooler gear to carry in the future. Read More
