  • “Silent Night” skin now compatible with iTunes 9!

    I'll admit, Apple does a pretty decent job designing a world class UI. Their latest work in Snow Leopard while not radically different from Leopard in any way, is still somehow able to wow me. Though, their taste may not be your taste. Even still, some simply like to change stuff up every once in a while. Especially those who work on their computers day in and day out, starring a the same background, the same theme, the same icons can just get old. Lately I've been into darker themes. Wa...
  • Dev-Team steps forward to save the day again…for OS X users.

    Those of you holding off for an official Dev-Team jailbreak solution to the recently released 3.1.2 firmware pushed out by Apple have something exciting to come home to. PwnageTool 3.1.4 for Mac OS X has officially been released bringing with it freedom for most. I say most because 3G iPod Touches aren't supported. It's also important to note that in order to keep your phone unlocked, you'll need to upgrade to 3.1.2 via custom built ISPW's via PwnageTool as fresh 3.1.2 devices have an updated...

    DNA artwork is nothing new. Since DNA has been readily accessible to mere mortals, people have used it as a source of income. Whatever you can possibly think of can now have your DNA slapped on it giving it ultra personal flair. If you happen to long for a digitized form, specifically a DNA iPhone wallpaper, a French based company, Helys, has just the thing for you. Their custom DNA iPhone wallpapers are quite the sight even giving you, the end user a few customization options such as color ...
  • MOTOBLUR ported to G1 [Video]

    Well sweet Jebus. Android how I love thee. If HTC's Sense UI has lost the luster of your eye or simply isn't your cup 'o tea, perhaps you'd care to try your luck with Motorola's new Android skin, "MOTOBLUR", on your trusty G1? I sure would! That is...if I had a G1. Moving on, the dirty deeds are detailed in the vid above in case you're feeling gutsy. After the whole Google/Cyanogen drama, I'm sure Google, and more importantly Moto won't be too thrilled with this harmless port. Hey, ...
  • Sense UI comes to BlackBerry
    by Mike
    Posted October 6th, 2009 at 8:44 am
    The coolest BlackBerry theme (as far as OS copies go) is here. The Sense UI theme by Elecite is awesome. While Storm user will get the truest representation of the Android OS, horizontal display Berries are also supported. Per Elecite: The massive homescreen allows for 5-6 customizable icons, profiles/manage connections buttons, a Today page with hidden today items for phone log, messages and calendar icons, a Media page with quick access buttons to music, media and pictures, and finally...
  • Google Chrome gets a slew of new “Artist Themes”
    by Mike
    Posted October 5th, 2009 at 12:56 pm
    If your artistic eye has been giving Google Chrome the looksie for some time now but are damned near the end of your rope, having to stare at that plain jane blue/greyish tint that current adorns the Google born browser? Google responded several months ago with a new themes section allowing users to skin their browser with several different colors and styles. Though, the initial themes that were released were "ok" at best as most of them suffered from god awful color combinations and layou...
  • The Geek-o-lantern…aka the “Crylon Jack-o-Lantern”
    by Mike
    Posted October 2nd, 2009 at 5:49 am
    Why not spread your digital love through a commonly viewed and loved object: The Jack-o-lantern. Except this year your Jack-o-lantern is going to be a completely different beast. If you've got $13 sitting around the house, some spare time, and an teensie bit of soldering know-how, you can recreate Evil Mad Scientist's "Cylon Jack-o-lantern. The $13 of course goes towards the Larson Scanner Kit in order to give it that sinister glow. Even better, the current model is much better at sipping en...
  • Make your own Google Street View camera system cheap!
    by Mike
    Posted September 30th, 2009 at 11:29 am
    If you've seen any one of the many pictures floating around the interwebs that shows Google's "chase vehicle" with the infamous Street View camera system mounted above and ever imagined owning your own, you were usually quickly shot down by your own mind as Google would never lend/sell you one. So, being the geek that Roy D. Ragsdale is decided to take matters into his own hands and build his very own Google Street view device. And knock the ball out of the park he did. For only $300, Roy c...
  • Simple Black&White theme by HedoneDesign
    by Mike
    Posted September 29th, 2009 at 9:56 am
    While themes chock full of eye candy are no doubt fun to look at and admire, some people just want a simple, high contrast, easy to navigate interface. HedoneDesign has just the solution: Simple Black&White.; The look is very straight forward with simple icons and meters so you don't have to second guess or strain to read what your Berry is trying to tell you. While I'm not usually a fan of such bare bones themes, this one is actually pretty stylish. The simple life returns for $6.99. Scre...
  • Halo Xbox 360 mod looks outta’ this world…
    by Mike
    Posted September 28th, 2009 at 6:12 am
    Since I'm on a mod kick this morning, why not move on from the mobile geek cave to something that is a little smaller a heck of a lot more affordable. Gaming console mods are nothing new. We have seen dozens pass through here at GS. Perhaps the most unique and well put together example of console modding to come through in some time the Halo Xbox 360 mod. The name is self explanatory. This 360 mod features a panoramic-like scene on the top of the 360 that is beautifully detailed. It does...
  • The Word Clock
    by Mike
    Posted September 28th, 2009 at 5:47 am
    Clocks have had the same general design and means of telling time for centuries. Sure they've progressed technologically from say a sun dial to a digital clock that displays numbers, but the overall concept is the same. Also true, attempts to radically change the way time is displayed such as some clocks which show the time in binary or with some other creative combination of fancy shapes and or characters are often hard to decipher. The Word Clock however is actually fairly easy to glean...

    Think you've seen or heard the loudest, most annoying alarm clock ever? I have some news for you. If you've never experienced the "KipKay Extra-Loud Alarm Clock", you haven't heard anything yet.

This alarm clock really is that loud and yes it will hurt your ears.... precisely why we have an example video so you too can experience ea...
