Ouch. Even the headline is painful. It appears that, in spite of a recently positive review in June, at least one editor at CNET UK has decided that it’s high time the iPhone’s shortcomings are shown to the world. In a slightly tongue-in-cheek list, Flora Graham spares no barbs detailing the biggest problems with the […]
Remember when we posted the clip featuring old hardware reproducing Radiohead’s Nude song? Well, in response to this video, James Cochrane decided to do the same with Funkytown, using a similar method.
After the ZX81 and BBC Micro, the last non-PC computer in my house growing up was Amstrad’s PCW8256. That’s somewhat appropriate given my recent review of Micro Men, which ended with ZX81 maker Clive Sinclair and BBC Micro maker Chris Currie bemoaning the way the market had been taken over by Amstrad’s Alan Sugar. The […]
Ok, sending a couple of Lenovo laptops into the sky via a trebuchet may not be anywhere as cool as doing so with flaming bowling balls, but this is still a pretty interesting experiment. At Gadgetoff 2009, a team of tinkerers used their trebuchet to launch two ThinkPad laptops, with the benediction of Lenovo of […]
One of the main reasons I enjoyed the recent Micro Men drama so much was that it featured all three computers (other than PCs) which I have owned in my life. And by owned I mean “had access to in my home as a child”. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be looking back […]
Remote controlled bugs buzz off, followed by a picture that looked straight out of a cyberpunk novel, a beetle with a remarkable bit of tech strapped to its head.

Ok folks, for those who’ve been with us for a while, you surely remember that Intel Rock Star ad featuring Ajay Bhatt, the co-creator of the USB technology, we posted a while ago, right? Well, apparently, the dude featured in the ad was not Ajay, but an actor looking somewhat like him. So when Conan […]
I’ve yet to jump on the Kindle bandwagon, mostly because I can’t afford it. But I’m not one of those naysayers, really. Granted, if I ever do get my hands on an e-reader I’m not going to pack up my books and give them away; I actually collect old books, and would never think to […]
Well folks, as promised, here are the pictures that were sent to us after we asked you to send in a view from inside your geek den. Congratulation to Matthew A. Cruley, who won the prize for the coolest (and tidiest!) setup, and to Chance Gearhart, who won the messiest one (although this could be […]
I bought my first iMac ten years ago, just after graduating from high school. He was Strawberry and his name was Bob. Sadly he met his demise when he was dropped by the USPS on the way to my college dorm and was never the same again. I did manage to collect insurance, however, and […]
The folks at Microsoft Research just released a short video demonstrating 5 novel multi-touch mice combining the standard capabilities of a regular computer mouse, but with some multi-touch features thrown in.
