Nice try PCgadgets, but I know a plain old storage locker when I see one. I'm sure that branding it for the Xbox 360 is the difference between a $40 price tag and $15 price tag.
As much as I admire people who believe enough in their artistic output to foist it on others for money, I knew Etsy had a dark side. Well, someone with the no-nonsense pseudonym Helen Killer just showed it to me:
Garmin makes the best portable navigators out there. Millions of people, including me, are fans. But following notoriously lengthy delays, the first Nuvifone should have been euthanized, not put on AT&T shelves next to the iPhone—for $100 more.
In the years that Post-its have existed alongside laptops, there hasn't been a single alternative to pasting the sticky papers around screen bezels. Right? Not quite, but no one told that to this contestant on ABC's Shark Tank.
Recently, I defeated my arch nemesis, the $250 briefcase-bound Casetation 2. It took a $99 PS2 (super power: price cuts), duffel bag, and connecting to any TV, because they're everywhere. $151 left over. Flawless Victory.
A cheeseburger-shaped mini-vacuum for your dirty desktop? Sure, why the hell not?
The Xact XG2500 Headset Cordless Telephone is still atrociously ugly, but that won't stop it from inevitably appearing in JCPenny's Christmas catalog in my parents' mailbox later this year. And now it's on sale!
iPod accessory maker Maxell is going to release music player earbuds that look like many kids' favorite candy-coated chocolate candy. What could possibly go wrong?!
With the press of a button, your life will surely change for the negative.
This iPod dock by iLuv is not really an iPod dock, but a full fledged stereo with subwoofer. And four CD players. Is that right? I mean, I make fun of gadgets with just ONE CD player and this has four CD players. FOUR. [Gadgetreview]
The Z-Nano mouse is claiming smallest optical mouse in the world: it's about the size of the finger you will use to daintily stab at its buttons. See it in diminutive action.
Last week, Stephen Gerding of the Kung-Fu Rodeo blog found this 99-cent iPod lookalike radio in his corner store. There are two buttons on the "click" "wheel." One for scan, another for reset, and you've got to marvel at the technology they must have used for the full-color screen. Unboxed pic below.
Sorry, but I just can't believe anyone's going to buy this. Not only does it just look ridiculous, with its faux stone carving topped with a leafy pineapple, and its two submerged halogen lights. (Why not four lights, or a whole ring of them? I mean, if you're going cheesy, go all the way.) On the good side, it does…
Click to viewWhen we first saw the Nokia Symbian Touch UI over the familiar S60/Symbian OS, we were stoked. Then we found out it was not a working proto but a rendering, and we wondered how far along they really were in their touchscreen UI. Turns out, not as far as we would like.
A new ad in Australia highlights the dangers of crossing the road with your MP3 player rumbling your inner ear canal at full volume. And of course, it shows the iPod in a new twist of Apple's original silhouettes campaign, now using the headphones cable as a way to draw the place in which a body lies dead. Ah, nothing…
The Gadget: Euricase Multimedia Ring Box, adds a 2-inch LCD and 60 minutes of video to otherwise meaningless jewelry boxes.
Taser wants its products to be common gadgets along the same lines as cell phones and MP3 players; you know, the stuff you always carry with you. That's why it's released a belt holster for its tasers that can be loaded up with 1GB of MP3s.
The What: DXG has always gone for the low cost bragging rights and they've reached the height of their budget crusade with this $150 HD camera that records to 1280 x 720 at its highest res. We've seen tapeless camcorders do this before, but that price is pretty insane. It records in H.264 quicktime files, and the…
