The Nintendo 64 might not have had the massive library of games like the PlayStation did, but it made up for it with quality over quantity. Do you ever really need anything more than GoldenEye and Ocarina of Time? No. And with this N64 emulator on your smartwatch, those games will always be in easy reach.
Do you remember the first computer game you played? What about the first program you downloaded? Unless you've just emerged Brendan-Fraser-in-Encino Man-style from the earth, wholly unaware of computers (in which case, I have several questions for you), your early digital distractions are probably years, if not…
Google and Apple can pitch them as productivity tools all they want, but the real reason anyone would strap a smartwatch to their wrist is as a more covert way to kill time and avoid boredom. So it's good to know that when your Twitter and Facebook feeds run dry, you can always boot up a Game Boy emulator on your…
Kind of like the modern equivalent of hiding a comic book inside the textbook you're supposed to be studying, someone has hacked and loaded a Sega Genesis emulator onto the Nook Simple Touch ebook reader. So instead of reading at the back of the classroom, you can spend your time chasing rings.
Popular Android emulator developer "yongzh" has had all of his apps yanked from Android Market without warning, he told users today, signaling that Google's recent bans (started last month at the behest of Sega) are all but over.

Console emulators are nothing new, even on mobiles, but this is the first time we can bring you news of a legitimate PlayStation one for Android devices. Called PSX4Droid 1.0, it looks a little something like this:
The Windows Phone 7 emulator has already yielded a few treasures—perhaps treasures isn't the right word?—so maybe you're hankering to take a look around yourself. If you're so inclined, Engadget has a nice walk-through of how to get the emulator up and running. If that seems like like too much work, there's a 10…
Game Boy Advance games, like Mario Kart Short Circuit, aren't quite running at full speed yet—about 60% of normal speed with sound or 90% without—but Game Boy and Game Boy Color games work just fine, and, as they say, emulators can't be choosers.
Last month, ZodTTD, the guy who basically pioneered game emulation on the iPhone, promised us an N64 emulator. Today, that's exactly what he's delivered, with a bonus: Wiimote support, via Bluetooth.
The iPhone gamepad case is back with an overhauled design that brings controls to the front, and adds dual analog nubs (the same as the Pandora gaming handheld). There's also an internal battery that charges the iPhone while playing.
Finally, an NES cartridge casemod I can get behind without weeping uncontrollably. This one houses a complete library of NES games, uses the original buttons, and hides inside the Super Mario/Duck Hunt combo cartridge. But wait, there's more:

Cool demonstration of the tech in action, but damn woman, get back on the road! Brief clip, with the fun beginning at 30 seconds and ending pretty much instantaneously. Update.
