Beer Filled USB Drive Might Get Skunked

When American beer meets data storage, the match almost seems like it was meant to be. Well, it wasn’t. Have you ever had beer spill onto a USB 2.0 device? Apparently CNK Promotions hasn’t, because it was daring enough to claim the world’s first beer-filled USB drive. While it can’t open a beer for you, it can create a sticky ...

T-Mobile G1 Will Not Have Bandwidth Cap

The talk about Google and T-Mobile’s upcoming G1 phone isn’t dying down anytime soon. However, in a very stupid move, T-Mobile had capped the phone so that after using more than 1GB of data over 3G, your phone would switch to GPRS-based ‘net and email access – significantly slower than HSDPA 3G speeds.

Fitbit: Pedometer 2.0

A cheap, barely-functional pedometer isn’t going to do you a lot of good. Shit, McDonalds was handing them out a few years ago with some bullshit “fit meal” marketing gimmick, essentially killing all hope that pedometer can really help you lose weight. All that has changed with the invention of the $99 Fitbit. At that price, most consumers will be ...
