    All of those days speedin' by Peach and Bowser in your cute little Mario Kart without so much as a single ticket were moments of luck. Don't let yourself end up like the t-shirt above -- out of shells, no star power, and now in debt.... Purchase the "80 mph Mario Shirt" from Anti-Clothes TheAwesomer...
  • “Touiteur” the best looking Twitter app for Android!

    One of the few faults I have with the Android platform is the lack of killer apps and polished apps. But one app by Levelup Studios called "Touiteur" looks like it will finally bring awesome functionality and eye candy. Ok, I'll admit that this app does take some iPhone-esque styling cues. Even still, I'm definitely buying this app as soon as it becomes available. So after watching the vid, can we all agree that it's easily the most functional and best looking Twitter app for Android? I'd e...
  • Brazilians finally get *official* access to Playstation2

    Here in the states we have the top pickins of some of the finest examples of gaming technology in the world. With the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 as prime examples of console gaming and of course any tricked out gaming rig taking the PC gaming spot. But there are places that aren't quite as lucky. Take for instance Brazil which just three days ago (November 18th, 2009) received official means to sell the Playstation 2. Yes, that's a 2 and not a 3. If you don't remember, the Playstation 2 was...
  • YouTube getting all pissy — yanking API rights from 3rd party hardware/services.

    Just when you thought YouTube was becoming this all knowing all loving *now HD* online video giant, they go and pull some stupid crap like revoking the rights of countless 3rd party hardware and service partners by making their API's off limits. Specifically, the new YouTube ToS prohibit anyone from using YouTube API's if they are "created for use on television set top boxes, television game consoles, or video screens packaged and marketed as television sets". Wow, asshole move there isn't it?...
  • T-Mobile USA looking for a new bunkmate?

    Coming last place can get old after awhile. Perhaps that's what's fueling T-Mobile's motivations to actively search for a new U.S. partner if reports from Reuters are to be believed. Currently ranked 4th out of the "Big 4" US cellular providers (Verizon Wireless, AT&T;, Sprint, & T-Mobile), T-Mobile has for some time now been trying to recoup lost ground and push itself ahead of it's rivals. Part of pushing ahead is expanding the carriers rather weak coverage nationally speaking. Such adventu...
  • Philips and the “LED Pro” TV

    Being a tech guru isn't for the faint of heart. Many will call us lazy, good for nothing, society sapping individuals because all we care about is personal gratification. To some extent, they're true. But we lovers of the gadget are so much deeper than that. I mean, we're not dumb by any stretch. A perfect example is captured in all of the cryptic phrases and labels manufacturers conjur up. Things such as 1080p, WUXGA, HDMI, etc. mean absolutely nothing to the normal human. But as technol...
  • Motorola Motus specs revealed!

    Posted November 20th, 2009 at 10:58 am
    The Motorola Motus, leaked in all of it's glory. We talked earlier about Motorola falling into a "Razr Rut" in regards to getting stuck on one design and beating it long past it's expiration date. With that said, the first interesting feature of the Motus is that it's not a "traditional slider" but instead features a unique flip open action. Excited? The rest of the specs...

  • Android gaming hitting a setback? Developers investing less in platform?
    by Mike
    Posted November 20th, 2009 at 10:26 am
    As much as I love Android, I will admit that it's far from perfect. There are some lag issues on even top notch hardware like the Droid and the bread and butter of the mobile world, the app scene, just isn't as matured as it is on the iPhone. At a an investor conference, Gameloft finance director Alexandre de Rochefort stated that Gameloft has significantly scaled back their Android development (as have other devs) due to one main issue -- money, highlighting the fact that the iPhone platform ...
  • Does the Motorola Motus show Moto returning to their “Razr Rut”? 2-4 years of Cliq/Droid/Motus-like copies ahead?
    by Mike
    Posted November 20th, 2009 at 8:18 am
    It's been two weeks now since the Droid was released. A week ago I gave my impressions after several days with the device. While the Droid had a form factor similar to the Cliq -- a more teenage/younger generation target audience -- the overall improvements in internals and external hardware as well as more advanced software pegged the Droid higher up on the food chain. So two big phones for Motorola after years of epic failure after epic failure. And now, a third device from Motorola has ...
  • BlackBerry Pearl 9100 set loose. [Update: Video added]
    by Mike
    Posted November 20th, 2009 at 7:34 am
    While many CrackBerry addicts live and die by the full qwerty keyboard that resides on their trusted loyal companion, some people just can't deal with all of that width. The heft of a full qwerty BlackBerry (even though small compared to many others) turns some people off. To solve that problem, RIM brought us the 8100 BlackBerry Pearl several years ago. Following up the 8100 was the 8220 which took a slightly different flip phone form factor and retained the suretype goodness. And today we ...
  • HDAiR wireless USB to HDMI/VGA converter gets audio support

    Going wireless is a liberating experience that sets apart those who merely like technology with those who can't live with out it. Die hard technology fans. Wireless, especially high performing wireless, is what we care about most. Besides, nothing says old and outdated like a junky cable poking out from your beloved gadgets. Building upon the success of their first gen HDAiR, Atlona Technologies took their customers' ideas and requests to heart by adding one of the most highly sought after f...

    Saving a buck or two is always a good thing especially with jobs not looking so hot and dollar bills going much less farther than they used to. We all hope to score a nice Black Friday deal each and every year but tracking all of the prices, stores, and items is a small chore to say the least. DealVista has got your back as they've compiled on massive spreadsheet highlighting the items, prices, and locations of all the best Black Friday deals.
