The Samsung shakeable “TicToc” mp3 player knows what you want by how hard you shake.

The Samsung shakeable “TicToc” mp3 player knows what you want by how hard you shake.

I was at CES 2010, yet I didn’t even notice this little gem in Samsung’s booth miniature city. In the midst of pencil thin TV’s, smartphones, and 3D everything, a little mp3 player that does nothing more than play some songs seems pretty unimportant. And for the most part, it is. But there is something cool to be had to whomever purchases this little player. The built in accelerometer can change the music by shaking. “Big whoop” you say? …

The USB Econo-hub special: A glow in the dark, plastic eagle.

The USB Econo-hub special: A glow in the dark, plastic eagle.

What would you say if I gave you a USB hub that was made out of cheap plastic, a crystal eagle, and featured gimmicky blue LED’s? You’d probably laugh and hopefully take the joke in good stride. There is of course the ever persistent danger that you’d take that econo-hub and chuck it right back at my face. Seeing as how it costs next to nothing, the loss after it fell to the ground and shattered would be relatively painless. The fake crystal shards in…

The Woody of 2010 — a simple DIY flash drive.

The Woody of 2010 — a simple DIY flash drive.

Mentioning the word “Woody” to your elders — especially the “older” elders — will garner colorful stories and vivid accounts of years past when cars had actual wood on the outside of the body. Crazy stuff. Nowadays, the only thing slapped on the outside of most cars is some form of metal or carbon fiber. Different times, different toys. Seeing as how a ton of wood is now being freed up since it isn’t going to automobile designs,…

The media mogul and open-source dream toy — Pandora — “is a go”.

Despise all things proprietary? Have a penchant for the more obscure gadgets that only true diehards know of? Make room then, for another gadget at your table. The “Pandora” is a music/video/game/emulating gadget that has been a long time in the making. Obstacle after obstacle appeared and seemingly rendered it vaporware, with months going by nary a peep. According to Open-Pandora’s homepage, our wait appears to be over. Of course, even though…

Barnes & Noble Nook to hitting retail shelves this week.

Fancy a good book? I used to be a big reader. I don’t know what happened really. I just drifted away from the written word. If I had to put my finger on any one reason I stopped reading, I’d have to say patience. Whether or not my gadget/electronic/fast paced fascination has anything to do with me not enjoying a slower paced activity (such as reading) anymore, I may never know. For those of you who still consider yourself bookworms, this week is an exciting…

The ever versatile LEGO: The Smartphone Gaming Holder

The ever versatile LEGO: The Smartphone Gaming Holder

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying: “When there’s a will, there’s a way”. Well my friends, if you happen to love mobile gaming but have problems holding those not so ergonomic devices such as iPhones, GameBoys and what not, making your own handheld gaming holder of sorts seems only natural. Of course, being built out of flimsy thin LEGOs means you can’t exactly get too into the game with that death grip of yours or your precious…
