  • 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...

    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...
  • CyanogenMod: “Yep…It’s over”

    Android has been looking more and more tempting as of late over my iPhone as AT&T; and Apple continue to restrict more and more content (read: users' rights) and make the iPhone less and less relevant. To anyone with an Android device, getting even more potential out of said unit involved using CyanogenMods and rooting into your phone. Once the dirty task of rooting was done, even more amazing things could be had with Android. But scary and disappointing things are starting to happen with An...
  • Intel a Hackintosh supporter?

    My my. It's only against the law if you're under the law. Sound familiar? Ever experience double standards in play? Apparently Intel is a supporter of not only double standards, but hacking as well. Check out the image above and focus on the left. While Intel was busy showing off "Light Peak", their 10Gbps optical interconnect technology geared towards mobile devices, one particularly interesting thing they didn't highlight was the cute little Hackintosh running it all. Read over your o...
  • R2-D2 becomes gaming god. 8 consoles stuffed within. Projector and onboard sound system added bonus.

    Love classic games do ya? Have a thing for old beeping robots and wars that take place near the stars? Super. If you fit the bill, you may want to contact the Brian De Vitis, the creator of the R2-D2 Gaming Haven, and get the blueprints/instructions on how to build your own. Owning a life-sized R2-D2 replica cooler is geeky enough. Adding a gaming console to his innards takes the geek factor a step further. However, squeezing in 7 more consoles, an onboard sound system, and a projector to ...
  • The Tweeting Kegerator: Two loves combined and the greatest innovation ever!
    by Mike
    Posted September 22nd, 2009 at 10:09 am
    Beer beer beer. How I love beer. Another love which I'm also become increasingly addicted to is Twitter. What better way to show of your geeky chops than to combine the two. That's exactly what SparkFun Electronics did. They took the company Kegerator, which was becoming increasingly difficult to monitor and keep full, and tapped (pun intended) into the real time tracking benefits of Twitter. The SparkFun Twitter account tells you such things as pull count, beer temp, and beer level givi...
  • MP3 Grenade: Explosive sound in a tiny package
    by Mike
    Posted September 22nd, 2009 at 7:06 am
    Out of all the mods I can think of that involve taking a gadget and stuffing it inside the carcass of something else, the MP3 Grenade is by far my new favorite. The MP3 player grenade is as one would expect, a tiny MP3 player (in this case a 2GB Sansa Clip) stuffed inside the hollowed out case of an older military grenade. While this is certainly a feat of gadget modding, I highly suggest you leave this beaut at home when flying home for Christmas. Something tells me TSA won't be so fond......

  • Steampunk Nixie Clock brings old school tech into the future for a hefty $
    by Mike
    Posted September 15th, 2009 at 5:42 am
    While I have generally not been to interested in the various Steampunk products that have been circulating around the inter webs the last several months, one in particular caught my eye just because of it's sheer beauty. The Steampunk + Nixie Clock is all about what geeks stand for. Antique and ancient designs come together in perfect unison giving 10 lucky (and deep pocketed) individuals a chance to own a true piece of geeky gadgetry. Constructed from vacuum tubes, this clock features an a...
