I spend much of my waking day on the computer, not a big surprise since I write for a tech blog. Something that has concerned me for some time is the fact that since I spend so much time typing and mousing away, I am at high risk of getting Carpal tunnel syndrome. However, there is a new gadget that promises to help those of us that spend a lot of time on our PC.
I'm sure that plenty of you have at least one Transformer stashed away in your house somewhere. Personally, I have an old 1990's Optimus Prime around here somewhere. Wouldn't it be cool to have one that turned into a PlayStation controller?
I highly doubt that any of you can honestly say that you've never seen any of the Back To the Future movies. I was born only a year before they came out, and I've seen them more times than I can count. Obviously, the first thing that everyone thinks of when someone mentions them is the DeLorean that was used as the time machine.
Unfortunately, not long after the movie became a blockbuster hit, the company went belly-up, and production of the car was halted. John DeLorean always wanted to be able to put the car back in production, but his effort was not realized during his lifetime, as he passed away in 2005. His dream however, will be brought to life.
I enjoy hacking and modding things for my own evil plans, however, someone has done something more extreme than I would probably care to try. Build a PS2 Guitar Hero controller from scratch.

If you're looking at building a SFF PC, or perhaps some type of crazy mod, then you might not have the space for a conventional 3.5-inch hard drive. Transcend has launched a new drive that will certainly be small enough for you.
Aside from its picture taking capabilities, it makes good use of the touchscreen in other ways as well. Obviously it can be used as a photo viewer, but the added functions of MP3 player and PMP are nice too.
Delphi announces its new GPS device today. The NAV300 is preloaded with maps of the continental U.S., Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. Like many modern GPS, NAV 300 features Text-to-speech technology that announces street names and directions.
Alex Gruzen from Dell has posted an update the XPS M1330 shipping delay. The XPS M1330 has finally begun shipping to customers, however it is still in a very limited quantity at this moment.
My younger brother is an airplane junkie, he loves to collect miniature airplane models, flight simulation games, and planes specs books. If you are like him, and you have a Wii game console, you might want to get the Wii Airplane Controller Stand.
