    Do you take a liking to the little trinkets and gizmos that you can adorn your office desk with? Do you take pride in having a shelf or drawer full of useless yet intriguing gadget crap, being the talk of the office? In a completely unrelated area, do you have some sort of secret ice skating fetish that you haven't quite come clean about yet? Why not kill two birds with one stone? Simply put, the Desktop Zamboni Vacuum cleaner will keep you at the top of the office geeks and *subtly* voice...
  • CES Dark Chronicles: Hotel showcases and “suite parties” leading way to blackmail and extortion?
    by Mike

    While I would classify my time in Vegas for the 2010 CES show as a resounding enjoyment, many smaller vendors whom were unable to display product on the show floor or took to a hotel suite for an additional (less expensive outlet) may see it a different way. Instead of the looking over your shoulder at competitors products, vendors now have another problem to look after -- angry CEA employees enforcing bogus crackdowns. According to DailyTech, whom witnessed the scandalous events first hand as...
  • Geeky-Gadgets iPhone app finally approved. Long waits, multiple rejections, and stupid reasoning aplomb.

    Travel back in time inside your mind to November 25th when we touched on fellow tech blogger Geeky-Gadgets' less than stellar interaction with the App Store and the mindless idiots who run it. November 4th: App Submitted / November 25th app rejected If you remember, the original Geeky-Gadgets app that was submitted on November 4th was rejected because of the contest category and some BS rule in the iPhone SDK that prohibits including or linking to such things. "Fair enough" said Ronald, e...
  • Down to the minute stocking stuffer: The Robot Alarm
    by Mike
    Posted December 21st, 2009 at 12:48 pm
    Some people pride themselves in their ornate and sophisticated plans and schedules they lay their lives out in. Such ways to approach the daily grind aren't necessarily bad, they just don't allow for any flexibility in my opinion. Others however find a kind of rush by "flying by the seat of their pants" into any and all situations. Which one are you? It really doesn't matter. The Robot Alarm knows no right or wrong. Whatever type of person you are, organized or completely chaotic is nothin...
  • Making road construction faster, easier, and completed on time: The Road Printer
    by Mike
    Posted December 17th, 2009 at 9:00 am
    I can certainly appreciate the hard work that most road construction workers do. Rain or shine, hot or cold, those guys and gals are out there in elements that most of us simple hate, doing hard physical labor. But as technology advances, we're going to find more mundane and physical jobs taken out of the mix, replaced with robotic counterparts. Such is the scenario the "Road Printer" depicts. The nifty thing about this little space lander-esque device is that it packs everything inside ...
  • Crack open a cold one without the lingering tuna smell: The Tuna Alarm Clock
    by Mike

    Be daring. Be different. Wake up in a whole new way with the Alarm Clock Tuna Can! If you crave individualism and long for expressing yourself in ways that are new and untapped by the masses, using a not so common alarm clock could be the first of many ways to shake up your life and those in it. For the first few seconds, an alarm clock modeled after a can of tune (WTF?) seems pretty funny and cool. Then you come to the realization that the clock is hidden under the lid. Granted you ca...
  • Rad Blast: The Boombox of the 80’s miniaturized and stuffed with 2GB storage.

    Take any stereotypical image you have of some inner city residents walking down the street in the mid 80's wanting to share some of their favorite music with the rest of the world. In today's world, we have things such as mp3 players, smartphones capable of streaming all kinds of content, and wireless headphones to aid in our sonic sharing. Those residents of Chicago circa 1982 however have nothing but a box and some beats. The now iconic image of late 80's life in the big cities illustrate...
  • Microsoft just can’t get a break.
    by Mike
    Posted December 12th, 2009 at 6:26 am
    Look back in time through your typical magic ball and observe how Microsoft at one point had a commanding grasp of many aspects of the technology market. From smartphones to computers to software, Microsoft controlled it all. The last 5-6 years however have seen a massive influx of both hardware and software options from various start ups and seasoned veterans all looking to get in on a piece of the pie Microsoft ate by itself for so long. The days of the Microsoft rule are over. Don't under...
  • Augmented Reality finds new home in Japanese vending machines.
    by Mike
    Posted December 8th, 2009 at 9:34 am
    You know, with each and every "far out there" or geeky invention I see come forth from the great island way out east, I find myself second guessing my decision of staying here in the states. Of course, I don't have too many options at the moment, finishing school and all. But nothing can quite compare to the uniquely weird things that Japan's greatest minds put forth. Case in point: AR equipped vending machines. If you though AR was just for mobile devices and happened to stroll by one of cu...
  • 10 of the most mind numbingly pointless gadget combos created by human beings…
    by Mike
    Posted December 7th, 2009 at 6:53 am
    Want a completely useless gadget that could get you killed? Check out the TASER-Mp3 player combo. At first it may seem like a good idea. Masking a self defense and publicly undesirable object with something that every loves -- an mp3 player. I thought the whole point of a tazer was to protect your from surroundings that were inhabited by less than friendly individuals? Now how can you pay attention in those dark, remote portions of cities with some stupid Clay Aiken song blaring into your e...
  • Smoke ‘em if ya got ‘em: The E-Hookah
    by Mike
    Posted December 6th, 2009 at 11:24 am
    A couple of years ago, I received a hookah as a Christmas gift from a friend. I'm not a smoker mind you, but every once in a while I'll get in the mood to fire the 'ol hookah up. The reason for the "once in a while" routine? Well, smoking isn't that great for the lungs (shocker!) but more importantly, I can only stand so much of it before it makes me nauseous. Also, the fact that I can't take my wondrous hookah anywhere in public because of anti-smoking laws blanketing the country means it h...
  • Crunchpad to be unveiled Monday, December 7th. Fusion Garage CEO front and center.
    by Mike
    Posted December 4th, 2009 at 8:08 am
    In every story, fight, or dispute there are always two sides. In the disheartening story involving TechCrunch's Michael Arrington and Fusion Garage in regards to the increasingly distant Crunchpad release and ultimate demise, it appears we'll get to see this device after all. This coming Monday, December 7th, the CEO of Fusion Garage, Chandra Rathakrishnan, will demo the Crunchpad and share his side of the story. Now, after hearing Arrington's side of the story -- which leaves Fusion Garage l...
