OnLive Now Charging Only for Gameplay (No Monthly Fees)

The streaming game service is no longer charging $15 in monthly fees, so if you've been put off by yet another monthly direct debit, now's the time to sign up for a free trial.

Olive + Thiel's $7,900 Audio Server is the Sheeeeeeeeit

Olive and Thiel may sound like a TV pilot about a crimefighting duo starring Joey Tribbiani, but it's not. The former do swank AV stuff like this , while the latter do expensive speakers and whatnots. Behold their bastard child. » 1/06/10 6:15am 1/06/10 6:15am

Olive Musica Wireless Music Center

I have an old Compaq iPaq Jukebox from, say, 2000, what still runs like a champ. It's basically the same as this Musica dealie, which is to say it has a CD/DVD ripper, can stream audio—the Jukebox's audio streaming was pretty primitive,though—and it stores music onto a hard disk. The Musica, unlike the beastly… » 9/14/05 1:57pm 9/14/05 1:57pm
