Evil Dead Themed iOS Games While We Wait for the Movie Remake

Fans of the Evil Dead franchise may have heard of a remake of the 1981 cult classic. It’s the one franchise that made Bruce Campbell famous playing the chainsaw armed Ash and Sam Raimi as director (unfortunately he went on to direct other things like the flop that was Spider Man). So it has come […]

Apple Launches Social Network, Destroys Cable TV

There were some jaws that had to be picked up off the floor this morning when Apple held its latest media event. Emceed as ever by Steve Jobs, the event was primarily about Apple updating its entire line of iPods, but it was a handful of other announcements that stole the show. Here’s a quick […]

CopyTrans: Music from iPod to Computer in a Flash

Does this scenario seem familiar?  Your beloved music collection is in your iPod and your computer.  For some reason, your iTunes library is incomplete, corrupted, or empty.  Or maybe you reformatted your hard drive and lost all the data.  Whatever the reason, you want – you need – to transfer your iPod files to your […]

Dubbed the “pink.invader,” this skin is available in several different sticky flavors, for your lappy, iPod, iPhone, BlackBerry, or Trapper-Keeper notebook. Alright, we made that last one up, […]

Parrot intros AR.Drone remote control plane for iPhone

Sometimes you just take a look at something and think “Wow! I want one of those”. Parrot’s latest bit of kit, the AR.Drone, is just one such object. The AR.Drone is a quadricopter (central cockpit and four propellers) that’s fully controllable via an iPhone or iPod Touch. Operating over Wi-Fi, it features two cameras. One […]

Walkman Or iPod?

I bet your answer is the iPod, without any second thoughts at all. That is not what I meant by the question, though. Of course, no one would want to trade in his iPod for a Walkman from the 80s! But what if you had an iPod case that looked just like a Walkman? What’s […]

The 10 Best Apple Products of the Noughties

All in all I think it’s fair to say that the 2000s was a good decade for Apple. The Steve Jobs-led Cupertino-based company pushed out a number of products, and while not all were raging commercial successes, they all exuded that certain “Appleness” that fanboys love and competitors try not to admit to but are […]

iPod with Everything: Electrolux's vacuum cleaner concept with iPod dock

Is “iPodification” a word? Clearly not, as there’s a big red line under it in my text editor, but I think it has to be one for next year’s update of the Oxford English Dictionary, because it seems that you can stick an iPod on just about everything these days. Take an everyday object and […]

Burn MORE Calories With Gadgets

Working out is FUN. It may not seem so in the beginning, but after a while, it kind of grows on you and you find yourself yearning for the release that it gives you. I have to admit, though, that I cannot run on the treadmill or ride the stationary bike without my trusty mp3 […]

When Travel And Geek Collide

Statistics show that travel peaks during holiday periods – and we are at the season where one holiday comes after the next. Those who have traveled at least once during a holiday period would know that while the trip may be fun overall, the actual transit time may give you the biggest headache you’ve ever […]

ShuffleRemote: iPod Shuffle and Apple Remote combined

When you’re worried about losing two small Apple products — namely the 2nd generation iPod Shuffle and the Apple Remote — then this hack is for you. The two devices have a similar shape, so were disassembled and then the iPod’s circuit board was connected up to the Apple Remote’s buttons.

Optimus Prime iPod dock

BigBadToyStore comes with the awesome Optimus Prime iPod Docking bay. The trailer has 2 speakers and is fully ‘licensed’ by Apple. This edition of Music Label Convoy is limited to 100 pieces, and is a collaboration between TakaraTomy and Exile, a Japanese pop band.

Getting Nostalgic Over The Walkman

Andy just posted something about the Walkman’s 30th anniversary and guess what that got me doing? I had to dig up some old boxes in an effort to find my old Walkman! Yes, I still have it! After spending a good part of an hour trying to locate it, I was more than ready to […]

Melodydrop: Self-righting water droplet speaker concept

Here’s a really interesting concept design for a dock and speaker for the original iPod Shuffle. Designed by Rhea Jeong and inspired by water droplets and musical notation, it has a tumbler toy built in to the base meaning that it will always self right itself.

Wooden iPod Mini

Awesome mod of an iPod Mini. I must say this is probably the nicest iPod Mini mod I’ve seen so far, almost as beautiful as Joel Scilly’s wooden turntables. My finished wood ipod mini. This has been such a fun project for me. It’s handmade (with special thanks to my 8yr old dremel) from Australian […]

Best Hotels For The Tech Lover

Traveling is perhaps my number 1 past time. I have to have at least two trips in a year to maintain my sanity. Otherwise, work would just burn me out. I am not a particularly fussy person but if there is one thing that would convince me about staying in a hotel or resort, it […]

The New iPod Shuffle

Apple seems to be making raves around the tech video blog these days because they have just released their new version of the iPod Shuffle with a refreshing new design and one unexpected feature. Loaded with Natalie del Conti has scooped-out Cali Lewis of Geekbrief.tv with this release (though I’m sure they’ve got a quite […]

Now the iPod shuffle talks back, but why?

Apple is surely running out of things to put on its iPod, given that its latest “innovative feature” is that the new iPod shuffle will talk to you. In fact, it’s the first music player that’ll talk to you. There’s a reason for that, Steve. No-one else would be silly enough to put that feature […]

The Phonofone

I whistled the sexy tune when I first saw this, and you would too I know! :) The Phonofone II special black design is by Tristan Zimmerman for Charles & Marie. The price (?) a hefty US$600. Yeah, I know, it’s more expensive than your already pricey MP3 player. The Phonofone is a retro-designed speaker […]
