That’s like being on acid. Not that I know what that’s like, but I’d imagine that’s what life is like when you’re on it. Holy crap this movie… Read More

    At 11am we’ll be talking to Aaron Vronko, co-founder of RapidRepair.com, a device repair shop. We’ll talk about his Kindle disassembly, what goes into this slim e-reader, and how easy it is to lose screws and parts when taking apart and putting back together electronic devices. My guess?

  • Sony finally gets it right with the latest PS3 commercial

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?umid=140831 With a title like “Hand Drawn”, I immediately thought this to be another mind melting commercial from Sony for the PS3 console. I’m happy to report that I was completely wrong. Wow. This commercial actually makes sense. Not that the previous spots were incoherent in any way, but this one doesn’t require you to think… Read More

  • GeekBrief.TV #268


    A PR agency contacted me and offered to send some products from a gadget company they represent. All of the gadgets are fun USB toys, so I thought it would make a great stocking stuffer show. If you’re going to stuff a stocking with a USB gadget, I think you have to stick some kind of iPod in it. My recomendation this year is the Nano. On this brief, I also talk about Brando’s… Read More

  • Pleo Dinosaur Robot Marches Its Way into My Heart

    Pleo is a new $350 ‘life form’ dinosaur robot created by Ugobe. Unlike all the robot dinosaurs I know (e.g. the WowWee Roboraptor), the Pleo is not remote-controlled. It’s ‘self-aware’. It ‘evolves’. It’s also not very badass. This thing, in a very mass-appealing kind of way, is a puppy. Read More
