Another Year, Another iPod

ipod.jpgAccording to sfgate.com, Steve Jobs is calling the Apples new ipod the seventh wonder of the world. Really its just an iphone without calling capabilities, but still thats not half bad. The ipod Nano lets users watch videos, but I wouldnt suggest that unless you carry a magnifying glass or dont mind going blind within 2 to 3 years. You can pick up a 4-gigabyte Nano for $149, and although Im not sure whats so wrong with the old Nano that Id need a new one, I can assure you soon cities will be a flood with them, carried by people with too much money and too little sense, or geeks who should have spent their money on some new, stain-free khakis.  read more »


Cruising The Net

Craigslist has afforded me many things: my apartment, my roommates, my job, and even most of my furniture. Ive known that I could use it to find a lost love, old friend, or new platonic social pal. But who knew I could have forgone all those pleasant encounters for some hard core action? Well, New Yorks Nassau County Police, for one, which have made over 70 arrests in the past year, often posting decoy ads or answering others, according to the New York Times.

Pimp My Gadget: The King Midas Touch

goldenshuffle.jpgThis pimped-out product doesn't make much sense to me. If one can afford a solid gold piece of ipod fabulosity, then one certainly wouldn't own the cheapest type of ipod. geeksugar.com agrees,but in their review of Xexoo's 18 carat gold ipod shuffle they smartly point out that some people just aren't deterred by what may seem ridiculous. Remember pet rocks? Oh, and if shelling out $10,000 bucks for this little item is still not enough to satisfy you, soon there will be an updated version with diamonds.  read more »


Color Me Crappy

gadget-crayola-player.gifIt was Taco Tuesday at our IT Guys house, and everyone showed up, even the HR lady with her 9-year-old son in tow. He was exciting and engaged as a piece of furniture as he was glued to his hand held video game thing. In my day we had nothing to entertain us but each other. We spent long nights around the fireplace, sharing stories and drinking hot cocoa that grandma made. Thats a lie, I had Atari, but still, kids these days have no sense of social decorum. Crayola disagrees, and is unleashing a set of products,including an MP3 player,that will inevitably zombify the toddler set. Check out craves' opinion.  read more »
