What do you get the fisherman who has everything?  A fish finder watch of course!  This is the coolest product I have seen in a long while.  Imagine the possibilities!  Am I serious?  No….  I think this one is pushing the lame factor pretty high.  Convergence for the sake of convergence strikes again.  Best part, according to the specs is that the unit...

For that metrosexual friend who has everything, Ariete introduces the Steakhouse Grill. Its electric, its chrome, its a conversation piece, and its targeted at people who never grilled in their life (Somebody call Sharper Image).

Nintendo is on fire! After hitting record sales for 2007, do they rest on their laurels? Nope, Nintendo announces that they will be shipping the Wii Fit, a new exercise game.

I am a firm believer in “You bought it, you own it”. When I buy a song online, I believe I have the right to play it – yeah call me crazy. I have the right to play it on any damn thing I own. Say hello to DoubleTwist (no its not another RAW beverage from Pepsi). DoubleTwist is a free application for sharing, enjoying and syncing personal media....

 At first glance I was a bit excited…. after all CNN and the Montel Williams show are talking about this new gadget, the S-XGen from Seamless Wi-Fi. If you close your eyes (very important you do this) and just think about the specs, it sounds pretty good (don’t open your eyes!). The S-XGen has a keyboard, Intel processor, 20GB drive, TFT touchscreen,...

Pepsi is doing the “jumbo shrimp” thing here with their latest soda “healthy Pepsi”. The soda is being billed as “all natural” and is made with ingredients like, apple extract, coffee leaf, cane sugar, and sparkling water. Best part about the new soda – the ads (read on for more pics)! Worst part about the new soda –...

A Virginia Tech student has invented a floor lamp that runs on gravity. The unit is bit over four feet high and will put out the same amount of light as a 40 watt light bulb for over four hours at a time. The lamp, if run eight hours a day, 365 days a year, will last over 200 years. “To “turn on” the lamp, the user moves weights from the bottom...
