MacWorld Coverage: Wednesday

We got there late, but we got there. Will Leitch, a special friend of Gizmodo, sends us a twisted missive from the heart of Mac Country. Will is not a techie. He's a journalistic pit-bull, a sports fan, and is coming to MacWorld with fresh eyes. He sees what we won't see. He'll bring back the blood, the glory, and…

Infill T3: Big Time Car PC

It's big and it's brawny and it wants to live in your car. No, it's not your mother—it's the INFILLL T3, a double-tall car in-dash car PC with a 1.6GHz CPU, a 40GB hard drive, GPS, and a lot more (although maybe not Wi-Fi, which seems miraculously shortsighted). Price and availability is still up in the air, but it…

Schtickers LapSchticks

What makes the LapSchticks Schtickers more appropriate for laptop decoration than other stickers? Not much—except the $20 stickers can be easily applied and removed, allowing you to swap out and customize your laptop as the spirit moves you. The designs aren't amazing, but they aren't terribly gaudy, either. This…

Friction Free Lube

Those dirty Japanese have discovered an almost friction-free lube. Before you get all worked up about the future possibilities in the realm of hentai tentacle porn, it's actually designed for fans and other machinery. The lubricant is made of an array of fullerene molecules between thin films of granitegraphite [

iPod Mini Everywhere

This interesting piece of patent marginalia shows a potential iPod Mini stuck inside a potential PowerBook. This is actually probably just Apple's way of covering its arse when someone comes out with a similar notion of an MP3 player built into a laptop, something about prior art or whatever, but the premise is…

SilverStone LC18

Case designs have been leaning towards the "pimp-my-mobo" side of things recently and this is no exception. THe SilverStone LC18 has an external LCD monitor on the case and looks like the bastard spawn of a MacMini and ThermalTake death-beast. Featured at this year's C3, the LC18 is an interesting mix of elegance…

Adventures in the Sysadmin Trade

John here. Got back from the NOC last night—the NOC is in DC and I'm in New York, so it was kind of like visiting the reclusive Uncle rather than a fun road trip—and I rebuilt MOST of the system. Now I need to get my MySQL DBs back out of an image of the disk that failed. I ran mke2fs -S on it, ran fsck, but now I…

Motion LE1600TC Tablet

Finally. Motion has rethought its previous trade dress—let's make it look as chintzy as possible and easily breakable—and gotten with the program. Although case color doesn't mean things are going to be better at old Motion, we do hope they've learned a bit over the umpteen years they've held onto the same gimpy…
