    Often in life we come across certain gadets that are truly a representation of innovation and inginuity. In todays go go go world, instead of recycling or fixing something, people would rather just throw it out and buy something new. Unfortunately, dear mother earth can only carry so much baggage. In regards to tech waste, the less plastics and other electronic materials we can bury in the ground the better. Aiming to fight the good fight, the Recycled Keyboard Key Flash Drives are the res...
  • Airplane USB Hub/USB Fan the perfect gift for the aviation lover

    While I have seen quite a few versions of the lowly USB Hub, this particular one is rather unique. Instead of being just your average, run-of-the-mill 4-Port USB hub, the makers of the Airplane hub decided to throw in an actual spinning propeller on the front of the hub to keep all of you overheating gadgets and geeks nice and cool. If you're worried about having to constantly deal with a spinning propeller freezing you to death and sapping non-stop energy, don't. Their is a convenient...
  • White iPhone 3GS likes to tan in the heat?

    Following the more uplifting success story below, this next story will sink the heart of at least a few...Gibralter...sit down. It seems all that new found power the iPhone 3GS is packin' under the hood can at times get a wee bit hot. While in most circumstances, the iPhone has no problem whatsoever keeping itself cool below the collar, reports are surfacing of white iPhone 3GS's getting a very unflattering tan. The picture depicts just how ugly this new look is -- brownish ridges on the ed...

To these little digital wonders, water is like the finger of God. All powerful with an outcome that is never good. Watching the movie above, it would seem that the guy who drops his iPhone into the pool is the unluckiest guy in th...
  • 12v Spotlight bring a mighty light in tiny package

    We've all had times where we were trying to grab that last gummy bear underneath the seat but just can't quite see where your paw is grabbing. Sure, you could use one of those little keychain lights. But those require batteries that you have to change all of the time. You can also use a bigger flashlight that could be seen from space. Though, those also take large batteries that over time are costly to replace. Why should you even have to replace batteries? Take your old flashlight and t...
  • Keep your membrane entertained throughout the day: Maze Pen

    We've all had days where time just seems to draaaaaaaaag along, each second seems like an hour. When you've already finished playing eye spy with yourself, counting the dots on the ceiling, (we've all done it), and walking laps around the office, why not get something that will keep you entertained and happy for at least another 30 seconds? The Maze Pen will do just that. While your long term sanity is still screwed, with copious amounts of boredom to soon follow, at least for the few minut...
  • Pirate Bay gets denied…looks ahead to appeal
    by Mike
    Posted June 25th, 2009 at 11:01 am
    While this shouldn't have been a surprise, somehow I am still left wondering "why"? You may remember all of the drama circulating around the Pirate Bay trial, verdict, and revealing of Judge Tomas Norström's membership to the Swedish Copyright Association as well as the motion for a retrial by the Pirate Bay and accompanying camp. I'm sad to say that today, a Swedish court has ruled that simply supporting a particular group/laws does not make you biased. In simpler terms: retrial denied. ...
  • Samsung Omnia: the new *hacked* home of Android
    by Mike
    Posted June 25th, 2009 at 10:49 am
    When consumers are faced with limited choices, taking matters into their own hands is often their response. In regards to Android, while the line up for the second half of the year looks promising, that doesn't do anyone much good right now who have a few handsets to choose from with hardware that is ok at best. Enter hackersville. The Samsung Omnia is pretty sweet phone albeit one big problem -- it runs Windows Mobile. Thankfully there world isn't going though a shortage of determined, sk...
  • “We Are The Fallen” looking to switch up the whole music writing/distribution process
    by Mike
    Posted June 25th, 2009 at 9:34 am
    While wars currently rage between labels, copyright holders, RIAA-like companies, and consumers alike, a small movement may be on the verge of starting. A new band, "We Are The Fallen" has risen from the ashes that was Evanescence. While many will confuse the old and the new, Ben Moody, the co-founder of Evanescence sees the two bands as walking the path of life on this earth peacefully rather than resorting to typical celebrity drama/bashing. So what exactly is the big deal with this new b...
  • Windows 7 pricing officially outted.
    by Mike
    Posted June 25th, 2009 at 8:33 am
    I'll start by saying that if you were hoping for Microsoft to loosely follow Apple in terms of pricing on OS upgrades on their up and coming OS releases, I'm sorry to say that considering Microsoft's revealed pricing "loosely based" to Apple's would be a stretch to say the least. For XP and Vista users who are upgrading, the pricing is as follows: Upgrade Pricing: Windows Home Premium Upgrade: $119 Windows Home Professional Upgrade: $199 Windows Home Ultimate Upgrade: $219.99 So the ...
  • iPhone 3GS’s PowerVR SGX graphics chip more powerful than first believed?
    by Mike
    Posted June 25th, 2009 at 7:30 am
    Anyone with any bit of gadget knowledge can take a look at the various tear downs of the iPhone 3GS and see that it is truly a modern marvel of engineering. The latest iPhone brings a much upgraded graphics chip that goes by the way of the "PowerVR SGX". Now, we know that this chip is many times faster than the old chips found in the previous iPhones and iPod Touches. However, a bigger mystery pertained to what model the chip actually was as there are many different models of SGX. SGX5...
  • Procrastinators and haters of fluff rejoice: iPhone/iPod Touch getting Cliff Notes app(s)
    by Mike
    Posted June 25th, 2009 at 6:26 am
    While procrastination is often frowned upon as teachers would prefer students spend vast amounts of time reading through ungodly amounts of useless information, the fine folks at CliffNotes realize that this is stupid. Why read through 100 pages when the main message, what you really need, is a mere page and a half long? Thankfully CliffNotes is going digital. Forget having to thumb through pages of CliffNotes, marking pages and highlighting sentences. Instead, flick through them with a s...
