Apple to Palm: Fuck You

Earlier in the year, Apple threw a hissy fit over the Palm Pre and its multi-touch abilities. Now Apple is going public again without naming any names. It states that third-party DMPs may sync with iTunes but that it’s totally unsupported and they could lose that feature in the future. This means that Apple will soon release an iTunes update ...

Atari 2600 iPod Dock

What is the deal with all these people ripping apart perfectly good video game consoles in favor of upgrading them with the latest technology? Sometimes retro is better! That being said, this is a nice looking iPod dock. It’s a broken iPod clock/radio shoved inside an Atari 2600 shell. My guess is that this mod took no more than an ...

A PC Disguised as a Super Nintendo

I’m the console disguised as another console disguised as a PC. Actually, this is just a badass case mod. Some dude shoved his entire Acer Aspire One A150 and a CD-ROM drive shoved into a SNES shell.

Review: JBL/Roxy Reference 250 Headphones

JBL has always been a purveyor of fine audio, which makes total sense considering its parent company is Harmon Kardon. A few years back, I reviewed some Reference 220 earbud headphones, which were affordable and sounded great on the iPod. This time around, JBL has teamed up with Quiksilver’s surfin’ sister company Roxy on a line of headphones that are ...

Wii60: Natal to be included on next-gen Xbox?

Project Natal could be headed to an Xbox near you! At least, that’s what sources are leading us to believe. If the speculation is correct, and as we all know, it ALWAYS is, than Microsoft will be releasing their motion-detecting Natal, not as a peripheral add-on, but as the major component of their next-gen console. So, what does this mean ...

iPhone 3.0 Tethering Hack

Oh man this is sweet. You see, this week, I got my hands on the GM copy of the iPhone 3.0 OS. I installed it, went “OK, cool”, went to revert and nearly bricked my iPhone. Somehow, two days later, it unbricked itself and went back to OS 3.0, which is what’s needed to rock this tethering hack. Here’s how ...
