    Back in 1984, cellphones were at their most primitive stages. They weren't cool looking, didn't have fancy shmancy processors like Snapdragon, and most of all, wouldn't even fit in a small to medium sized bag. In the current year of 2009, cellphones/smartphones are now taking over more aspects of our lives as they become miniature computers. Sometimes though it's fun to recapture those "glory days" back when technology was ugly and unsightly. The current high fashion gadget as most would...

    BlackBerry users, especially those with an eye for customization and design have probably went through at least a couple of themes on the cherished Canadian born phones. One of the best premium theme designing sites located at have continually pushed the envelope of the BlackBerry theme world. Back when animations were just beginning to pick up steam and still helluva hard to incorporate into themes, Elecite was at the forefront weeding their way through. It's hard work no doubt. ...

    Want to see a real modern genius in action? Guitar Hero may be on the back side of the popularity mountain, but one thing is for sure -- Ric Turner, former Disney Imagineer, is a genius. The reason for his ingeniousness is for his creation, "Christmas Light Hero". Obviously based off of Guitar Hero, Ric recorded a perfect run of Eric Johnson's "Cliffs of Dover" for the base video material. The 21,268 lights and LEDs display the recorded video on the garage door while the audio is actual gam...

    With the release of BlackBerries packing faster processors means faster navigation, better performance in applications, and for those with an eye towards design -- cleaner, more premium themes. In the case of HedoneDesign's new SnowTime BlackBerry theme, those who are absolutely infatuated with winter, snow, and everything that Christmas memories bring will find this new theme quite a treat. The main idea here is simple and elegant. You'll notice the homescreen only features a couple of user ...

    When trying to navigate the vast landscape of the internet, search engines are no doubt one of the easiest and most useful tools. Here in the states, there are two main players -- Google and Microsoft's "Bing". Google holds a majority market share though Bing is holding their own, slowly inching up month by month. Bing isn't Microsoft's first attempt at search but is by far their most successful. Perhaps it's the improved searching algorithms. Or maybe, just maybe it's all of those pretty w...
  • The Pharoh’s computer of choice: NecroMac [Custom Power Mac G3 mod]

    You know, I love seeing technology modded. Things like custom Xbox's, tricked out PC cases, and mashups of the weirdest gadgets really get me going. Seeing as how I'm almost positive that you're a nerd too, one who also likes custom gadget stuff, allow to share with you NecroMac. The heavily modified Power Mac G3 you see above has hieroglyphs inscribed all over it's plastic canvas giving it that old Egyptian flare that is really impressive. Achieving this blend of old and new was accomplishe...

    If you're looking at the image above wondering if it's plausible....or even fully working, I can honestly say yes, yes it is. The photo above shows the end result of an old Sega Genesis tear down by Wired's Charlie Sorrel. According to Charlie, their was plenty of room to jam some small speakers inside and make this Japanese Genesis belt out tunes in line with some of the greater iPod docks. But in the end he choose to keep things nice and simple. Hey, I'm simply amazed in wonderment at the ...

    Yeeeeooop. It's a slow news day. How about some light hearted reading. A picture is worth a thousand words, so I'll just let it do the talking. Feeling crafty? Gizmodo...
  • Street legal bumper car navigating the urban jungle…

    Posted November 13th, 2009 at 4:02 pm
    Some kids spend the long stretches of summer and winter breaks playing video games and sleeping in late. The more entrepreneurial meanwhile take a seemingly innocent bumper car and transform it into a 100% street legal driving machine... Ready to feel the wind in your hair? Getting in touch with the open elements and looking geeky at the same time has never been cooler. The car you see above is an actual bumper car that has been modified to meet all road going laws. Yes, all laws. This i...
  • Windows 7 “Branded” themes coming soon.
    by Mike
    Posted November 13th, 2009 at 10:43 am
    Themes, themes, and more themes are the answer to one of life's biggest problems -- bland UI styling. Themes give you a small part in customizing your computing experiences so that it's a more personal digital space. Happy joy, happy joy. Windows 7 comes with some pretty basic themeing options. They're not anything mind blowing, but better than nothing. Simple color changes of the windows borders, custom wallpapers, and custom transparency pretty much explain everything there is to be s...
  • Motherboard Lisa the ultimate geek art!

    Posted November 12th, 2009 at 6:30 am
    Have an idea for the zaniest gadget/tech inspired custom work of art of all time? I hope you have some creative chops because the designer and creator of the Motherboard Mona Lisa is a genius. Who created such a wondrous work of art? It hasn't been pin pointed on any one person, though you can gaze upon this site worth beholding at ASUS in Peitou, Taiwan. (Up for a little road trip?) Ya, geek art just got taken to a whole 'nother level. Come inside for a few closeups of this beat... ...

    LEGO's just not your thing? Well then, the LEGO Macbook Logo holder we mentioned yesterday isn't exactly "up your alley" now is it? Not everyone likes LEGO's. It's ok. But those looking to add a little custom visual candy to their Macbook's and Macbook Pro's still have hope. Kickin' it old school on new age tech is always a cool blending of old and new. In the case of the Pac-Man decal above, the Apple logo on the back of the 'book yet again is cleverly aligned with the decal making these ...
