Oki develops iris scanner for your mobile phone

Oki develops iris scanner for your mobile phone

I've never really been too worried about someone stealing my phone, though I'm sure that the risk is always there. I generally keep my Helio tucked away in my pocket when I'm not talking on it, and I don't think anyone would really want to fish around in my pocket to nab my phone.

Kingston announces 4GB miniSDHC cards, eMusic microSD card/reader

Kingston is releasing all kinds of goodies these days. Last week we heard about their Collegiate microSD cards, earlier we saw their speedy CF Ultimate Cards, now they've dropped two more announcements in our laps.

The first announcement is that they will be releasing their 4GB miniSDHC cards in Class 2, 4 and 6 speed ratings. Who cares what the class rating is, as long as it's big right?

Logitech VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks – Now that’s a tiny receiver!

I do a bit of traveling for different shows and such, and that means taking my laptop everywhere. I hate using the trackpad for long periods of time, so I usually have a mouse with me. I'm always terrified that one of these days I'm going to break off that little dongle that plugs into my notebook. Logitech realized this as a problem and solved it with their VX Nano Cordless Laser Mouse for Notebooks.

DirecTV Sat-Go, Portable Satelitte TV

DirecTV Sat-Go is the only portable satellite TV system in the market. If you are like me where I go to tailgating for my college football games frequently, the DirecTV Sat-Go is a perfect gear for the occasion. However on design, it is not much of a looker and the price tag is quite high at $1499.
