    Inside any apartment building you can always find at least half a dozen Wifi networks, many of those open because the person who set it up doesn’t know any better.  If the interference bothers you or your equipment, or you just feel like blocking those pesky signals, a team of researchers from the University of Tokoyo has finally figured out a way to block the higher frequencies of WiFi with paint.  For several years now, blocking cellphone frequencies and signals with paint was possible, …

    Cheetah Ultra Sports has spent the last 4 years researching and developing the Whip F-117.  A futuristic, sharp edged snowboard.  Apparently, said snowboard is the “Lamborghini” of snowboards allowing riders to rider faster, feel lighter, in general snowboard better.  I’ll have to take their word for it as I have never been snowboarding, (would love too though).  The “Lambo Board” comes with a price tag to match the name too…$1899!  Now again, I’m not in to the whole snowboarding scen…

    Asus known more for the computers, unveiled the coolest keyboard i’ve ever seen.  The keyboard has been dubbed *no surprise* the Eee Keyboard.  Not only does it look cool, but it packs the goods inside as well.  Starting off, the 5-inch touchscreen display instantly grab your attention.  Who needs a number pad now!  The keyboard is incredibly thin and has a sort or Mac keyboard look to it.  On the back, you will find a whole army of ports to connect whatever it is you can think of to …

    With the ocean of formats available for what seems like an equally full ocean of different types of cards, you may think oh *expletive* at hearing of another storage format.  Fret not fellow readers for it is a backwards compatible format for SD cards dubbed SDXC SD (eXtended Capacity).  What is the benefit of these new fangled cards?  How about storage up to 2TB!  The cards rely on Microsofts exFat file format.  A few examples of what you can store on this thing are: 4,000 RAW images, …

  • Logitech Harmony 1100 touchscreen remote is awesome!
    by Mike
    Posted January 6th, 2009 at 12:03 pm
    If any of you have a home full of AV equipment you’ll know that pain it is to have to constantly switch between a million different remotes.  You’ll also hate it when you can find one of those million remotes.  Universal remotes are nothing new as they have been around for many years.  In recent years however, they have become increasingly complex, almost like miniature computers.  Logitechs Harmony 1100 touchscreen remote is the sequel to last years 1000.  The 1100 features a black ano…

  • Psyko 5.1 Surround Sound Headphones…Literally!
    by Mike
    Posted January 6th, 2009 at 7:21 am
    Because headphones with just two speakers are junk and outdated, Psyko Audio has decided to up the ante quite a bit with their Psyko 5.1 headphones.  These rather interestingly designed headphones don’t have just two speakers, but a whole slew of them, surrounding your head.  They’re not kidding when the say surround sound!  Apparently they have won some awards.  I wonder if most radical design was one of them?  Regardless, I can’t say I wouldn’t buy them if I liked how they sounded, …

    Posted January 5th, 2009 at 7:44 pm
    Mac Daily has been informed by one of their Apple sources, the next Mighty Mouse could come as a wireless only model and have an accelerometer under the hood.  Apple could be looking to kill two birds with one stone as this new Mighty Mouse could also possibly replace the Apple remote.  On top of scaling two devices into one, another design rumor details Apple getting rid of AA’s all together in favor of a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, much like several other mice and keyboard manufac…
