Nike and Apple team up for Nike+

May 27, 2006 at 04:15 PM

Incredibly cool new set of products from Nike and Apple coming soon. Insert a sensor into a pair of specially designed Nike+ tennis shoes, attach a receiver to your iPod nano, and then the two measure your activity. The iPod nano's screen gives you important information such as time, distance, pace, and calories burnder, and you'll hear workout-based voice feedback through your headphones as you exercise. You'll be able to purchase special Sport iMixes... Continue reading

PC Magazine Peerflix review

April 26, 2006 at 10:09 PM

PC Magazine has a review of Peerflix up and gives the service a 3.5 out of 5. If you don't like what you bought, you can always trade it away for something better. The downside? The selection is spotty; it's a bit of the chicken-and-egg problem. The more people use it, the better it will get, but right now, Peerflix is missing a lot of popular movies. By "missing" I mean that although they're in... Continue reading

Google Calendar is badass

April 15, 2006 at 05:12 PM

Google Calendar was released to the world this week and it reminds me a lot of an online version of Apple's iCal. That's certainly a good thing. Looks great (especially for Google) thanks to Douglas Bowman, is easy to use, powerful sharing features, and Gmail integration. With the way Google does things, I imagine an API will be available soon (if it isn't already) and there will be some cool Firefox extensions for it... Continue reading

Oklahomans suck at the Internet

March 25, 2006 at 11:23 PM

Tuttle, Oklahoma (home of the illustrious Jason White) threatened to call in the FBI because its web site was "hacked" by Linux maker Cent OS. Unfortunately no one had been hacked, the city had just misconfigured their web server and it was still pointing at the default Apache placeholder page (example). The city's city manager, Jerry Taylor, then proceeds to start a ridiculous email exchange where he ignores all the advice and just continues... Continue reading

YouTube sucks (because the DMCA sucks)

March 17, 2006 at 09:36 PM

They've been removing all sorts of random stuff because of the DMCA lately. Why remove a trailer for Snakes on a Plane? Did New Line Cinema not want free publicity and thousands of people finding about their movie? Someone should tell Hollywood this kind of crap is the reason no one is watching your movies in theaters, not because of piracy. No wonder people want you to just shut the hell up. They just...

Touchscreen video iPod

February 14, 2006 at 09:34 PM

Just some fans idea of what the video iPod would look like, but I definitely like what he's thinking. Ditch the click wheel and use the entire front for the screen, using a touch screen LCD that recreates the click wheel virtually. When playing music it looks very similar to the existing iPod and while playing fullscreen video hides it unless you need it. Very cool but they'd have to create some sort of... Continue reading

Hands-On with PlayStation 3

February 13, 2006 at 10:28 PM

Xbox fanboys sure took this Playstation 3 hands-on from Kikizo Games as some sort of victory. The only major negative quote is that they say the Playstation 3 is a machine barely superior to Xbox 360 after playing games from one developer that are so still half a ear from being finished. Really difficult to make any real conclusions based on that. This is essentially like someone playing Amped 3 when it was 50%... Continue reading

iPod nano flaw

January 30, 2006 at 10:50 PM

I just tried using my new iPod nano at the gym today and displayed this issue. It gets stuck on the rating screen and even when you try to navigate to the other screens the stars stay on there. Really annoying. Looks like it may be a new error with the latest update, hopefully it's remedied by another update soon because it definitely hampers the use of the player.... Continue reading

Undelete shows from your TiVO

January 26, 2006 at 08:04 AM

I never thought about it, but it makes sense. When you delete a show off of your TiVo it doesn't actually immediately remove it from the hard drive, it just removes it from your list of shows and will record over that space when necessary. Because of this, TiVo will soon add the ability to retrieve recently deleted shows. Want to get a show back you deleted yesterday? Scroll down to the Recently Deleted... Continue reading

Get a free PlayStation 3!

December 04, 2005 at 10:00 PM

From the wonderful people who brought us FreeIpods.com, FreeFlatScreens.com, and Free360Xbox.com (Update: I got my free Xbox 360 in July 2006!!) have now set up PS3s.freepay.com before the PlayStation 3 even has a release date. Simply click on my referral link and register at the site, complete an offer yourself, and then have a few friends sign up, and you're good to go. It's all pretty simple. Have no fear, the FreePay Network (formery... Continue reading

Massive comment spam attack coming?

November 20, 2005 at 07:01 PM

This site gets a ton of comment spam on a daily basis, but fortunately Movable Type Version 3.2's built in security features completely block about 95% of it and allow me to moderate the rest. Lately, I've gotten several messages a day that seem tobe harmless and pointless: I've managed to save up roughly $88847 in my bank account, but I'm not sure if I should buy a house or not. Do you think the... Continue reading

Firefox 1.5 for Mac sucks

November 19, 2005 at 05:17 PM

Pretty much every beta and all three release candidates of Firefox 1.5 have crashed constantly on my PowerBook. I'd like to be able to use the same browser while on either a PC or a Mac, but this is unacceptable. What's really bad is that one of this release's main additions is better support for Mac OS X. The several crashes per hour (and often even more frequently) have most likely driven me to Safari.... Continue reading
