Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

I just wanted to wish a happy new year to all of our readers, staffers, and all the people we work(ed) with on a daily basis throughout the past year and in the year to come! As far as I know it the next big thing on the SlashGear calendar is CES, we’ll be there covering it live too, and then Mac World and there are a ton of other events I am forgetting but those are the most immediate.

Narae Inter ball point pen does more than write

Narae Inter ball point pen does more than write

Sure it’s a ball point pen with replaceable ink and all, but the upper half has both a laser pointer and 4GB of flash storage built into it. Probably the nicest part is that it doesn’t look like some cheap knockoff pen, it actually looks like a nice pen.

HDMI adapter for older Xbox 360s brings joy to all

This simple Xbox 360 themed adapter will grant your older or newer HDMI-neglected Xbox 360 the same HD privilege that those with higher end or newer systems already enjoy. Actually, you not only get the HDMI port addition but you get the digital audio output as well.

So P2i has taken the technology the British defense department has been using to repel chemicals and gases from their soldiers uniforms and applied it to cell-phones to repel water from the high tech gadgets. Generally you had to add some size and girth to a mobile device to offer up waterproofing, whether it be from a special water-tight case or due to the seals being built into the actual phone itself.

LG Rumor debug menu allows entire device to be wiped

LG Rumor debug menu allows entire device to be wiped

I am sure there have been a few times you wished you could just wipe everything and start over, and on a PC where you have the OS software handy, the only other thing you need is time, but doing the same on a phone could mean an expensive paperweight. Well, apparently there is code in the LG Rumors sold by Sprint that allows a person access to the debug menu.

CES 2008: E-Lead Noahpad UMPC

CES 2008: E-Lead Noahpad UMPC

So, E-Lead will apparently be showing off a new UMPC that looks (not-so-) surprisingly like the Eee PC that everyone has fallen in love with. The main differences are the lack of flash memory, a different distro of Linux, and some sort of weird input interface.
