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 ...

Review: Moon

When a friend of mine working for Popular Mechanics invited me to a private screening of the movie Moon, I naturally hopped on the chance. It’s director Duncan Jones’ (David Bowie’s son, natch) first full-length film and it was made on a shoestring budget of $5 million. But enough about that. What did I actually think of the movie? Click ...

Watchmen: Boring Snoozefest

Just wanted to give you my two cents this morning on what I thought about the Watchmen movie. I read the book about six months ago and while I loved the graphic novel, the movie adaption is pure rubbish. So bad, in fact, that I turned the pirated version of the movie off walked out after 40 minutes in. It ...

Quick Review: Samsung Memoir From T-Mobile

Ah, yes. The Samsung Memoir from T-Mobile. It was to lead the charge of the next-generation of cellphones. After all, it has a touchscreen, 3G speeds, an 8-megapixel camera and a variety of other features built-in so it must be good, right? Maybe. The Samsung Memoir, on paper, appears to the hottest phone to hit the market since Apple’s baby ...

Quick Review: JBL On Time 400iHD iPod Dock

Several weeks ago, I received a JBL On Time 400 iHD iPod Dock (whew!) to review. In the past, I’ve really enjoyed JBL’s products. They make fair-priced, great-sounding iPod docks with rich bass and decent treble and mids. I unpacked the On Time, plugged it in and shoved my iPod Touch on top to start streaming music to the speakers. ...

Review: Noby Noby Boy

So last night, I stumbled home somewhat drunk and full of Mexican food. I plopped down on the couch and started smoking a cigarette. I decided to cure my temporary boredom, I’d spend the $5 on Noby Noby Boy for the PS3. I downloaded it and 20 minutes later, fired the game up. 30 minutes later all I could say ...

But John Biggs, the intrepid editor over at CrunchGear, decided to dust off his boots and do a video review of the Spyder II GX laser from Ultimate Lasers. Comparing it to my penis, he says it’s “really, really ...
