  • How soon is too soon to equate HD DVD to fallen Hitler's Reich? Not soon enough, apparently

    Luckily, this “Hitler railing against Flight Simulator/Quake/AMD” meme has been sufficiently subsumed that we can look past the obvious nastiness — Hitler — and enjoy the subtitles. via BB Read More

  • Uncle Walt loves the Air, tentatively

    http://services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/452319854 “All thin notebooks have compromises,” says Mr. Mossberg and we have to agree. Clearly the Air isn’t for all of us, but folks with a huge, nasty IT-department Dell will think of this as a breath of fresh “air.” Ha! Willie! Read More

  • Lady knocks down 1,500 hard drives, domino-style

    http://embed.break.com/NDMzNTMy Man, I thought I had too many spare hard drives scattered about the house but this lady takes the cake with 1,500. And what better use of 1,500 hard drives than building a gigantic domino course? Very nice, Hard Drive Lady. Very nice indeed.

  • A closer look at 1.1.3

    http://www.crunchgear.com/video/player.swf?movie=firmware.flv I know, I know: dead horse, beaten. But we always love the things we can’t have — yet. Read More

  • Macworld 2008: Multitouch on the Air, starring my fat fingers

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf So just how well does the multitouch on the new MacBook Air work? Very. Take a look at me, a novice, whipping my way through several images on Preview. Now imagine if this was all of your downloaded porn. Now you want one, don’t you. Read More

  • Hands-on with 1.1.3

    http://www.crunchgear.com/video/player.swf?movie=jamesone.flv Kind and patient reader Jameson walked us through 1.1.3 in iChat. After three different attempts using different hardware, we finally got a good take. I’m going to go take a nap now. Read More

  • Macworld 2008 Keynote: Watch it beginning to end, right here

    Peter and I wish you could be here, we really do. We’d planned on serving you live audio of the Keynote, but Apple’s spies (Apple has spies?) caught wind and told us to back it off. Fair enough, it’s their show, so we did. But just to make it up to you, CrunchGear’s users, they’ve given us first access to the video archive of the Keynote, for you to watch streaming… Read More

  • Dreamcast controller as a precursor to the Wii?

      This guy is thinking of suing Nintendo, alleging that he came up with an idea that the gaming giant copied with its so-popular-we-can-all-afford-long-pants Wii system. This video was apparently made about eight years ago. If it’s real, this guy might have a shot at some cash. Contrary to popular belief around the blogosphere, it’s my opinion that he’s wearing shorts… Read More

  • GeekBrief.TV #292

    At the risk of turning off my Windows and Linux friends, I’m over the moon excited about my first Macworld and Steve Jobs keynote. I asked Mr. Keynote attendee, David Pogue for advice. This is our conversation. Sorry Windows people…this next week is probably going to be annoying, unless you want to switch…and I know you do. Go ahead. Let’s get her done. Then we can all… Read More

  • This is how you're being tracked when using BitTorrent

    Watch and learn, people. Obviously there are other ways for this to happen, but this should give you a general overview of how it works. There are some counter measures, but nothing is fool proof. Tread lightly is what comes to mind when doing anything that’s deemed to be an act of piracy.

  • CinematicTitanic = MST3K++

    Joel Hodgson and the rest of the MST3K crew are back and it looks like they’re better than ever. They’ve started a new movie-make-funning-of troupe called CinematicTitanic and they’re selling DVDs — and will soon sell downloads — of their episodes for about $15. I just picked up the first DVD, the The Oozing Brain and I look forward to laughing until I wet… Read More

  • GeekBrief.TV #290

    Speculation about why Brief 289 ended so abruptly is worthy of a contest. I’m giving away something from my gadget closet to the most creative commenter on that episode. Sean Carruthers from The Lab with Leo Laporte and Lab Rats helped me out with some CES coverage. In Brief 290, he showed us a new iOmega Ego Drive, the Powermid, a Bluetooth headset for motor cycle helmets and the… Read More

  • Iona Cube: Dead simple Internet radio for under $50

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf Conventional Internet radio hardware devices are about to get a kick in the expensive, cumbersome pants if Cambridge Consultants has anything to say on the matter. I got a quick peek at the pretty-much-ready-to-go Iona Cube concept at CES and I was mightily impressed. If and when this doodad finds a distributor… Read More

  • GeekBrief.TV #289

    Our trip to CES lasted fewer than 24 hours. We were there to attend an electronics retailer awards ceremony produced by Monster Cable. During the ceremony, we saw Andru Edwards from GearLive.com and iPhone 1.1.3 fame. I got him to show it working in person. Unfortunately, the lighting was bad, the camera work is bad, and so our verification of what he has still leaves room for suspicion. I saw… Read More

  • Motorized under bed TV mount makes me hate my plain old crappy bed with nothing but crap under it

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf If you watch this video and think, “Hey, I could build one of those,” do it. I’m telling you, man. This thing is really expensive. I asked the guy how much and he said that depending on the options, it starts at around $16,000 to $18,000. I thought he was going to say $1,600 to $1,800 but boy… Read More

  • Ah, D-Box. I want one.

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf It’s a chair with hydraulic legs that moves around in harmony with whatever game you’re playing or whatever movie you’re watching. Well, maybe not whatever game or movie but there’s an impressive and growing list on the D-BOX site. It’s not cheap, but can you really put a price… Read More

  • SanDisk TakeTV in action, looks pretty nice

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf Word of SanDisk’s TakeTV device got out a few months ago and after just seeing it in action, I can tell you that the video quality is pretty nice. The TakeTV isn’t going to be for everyone, but for those of us looking for an easy, quick way to dump video from the computer and watch it on a… Read More

  • Just a reminder that R2D2 as a projector is awesome

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf This is not a new idea by any means. I just wanted to reassure everyone that it still evokes a chuckle and a knowing head nod to see R2D2 effortlessly tossing moving images up onto a white screen. It’s what he was meant to do. That is all. Read More
