The Mesiro Merium media PC offers interchangeable covers

I love my PC case, but occasionally I do get bored with it. There are days I'd love nothing more than to swap cases as often as I please. I'd need a closet full of them to suit my moods though, not to mention it's not really all that practical to do. Well the Mesiro Merium media PC offers a solution to keep your PC changing its look as often as you like.

Just swap out the interchangeable cover with another and you have a new look for the day, different covers are sold separately of course. The PC itself features a 1.66 GHz Core 2 Duo T5500 processor, 250 GB internal HDD, dual-layer DVD burner, GMA950 graphics accelerator, Wi-Fi, 5-in-1 multicard reader and bundled MCE remote.

The Altec Lansing MUZX earphones

The Altec Lansing MUZX earphones

I have from time to time gotten annoyed over technology geared towards women and girls turning out to be pretty, but excessively lacking in the specs department. These earbuds from Altec Lansing is a refreshing change from that issue.

For all those drawn to all that sparkles and shines these cute little earbuds feature enough Swarvoski Crystals to keep anyone satisfied. It also features a snug fit for those more petite girly ears as well as a bit of passive noise reduction.

The Big Buck Hunter Safari gaming arcade machine

The Big Buck Hunter Safari gaming arcade machine

If you have a bit of a thing for hunting games a full arcade machine might be a nice addition to add to your home. Personally I prefer shooting zombies to animals, but I always enjoy the arcade machine guns more than playing with the guns on my Wii.

Eventually I fully intend upon owning an arcade machine, yes its giant and bulky and typically plays only one game. However, there is just something about owning one that seems so much better than a typical game console. The Big Buck Hunter Safari gaming arcade from Raw Thrills offers 15 different courses all offering differing landscapes. If you're slightly annoyed that certain real animals have become endangered and therefore you can't hunt them you might be overjoyed to find even the endangered species on the pallet to be shot.

HTC Shift CDMA EV-DO UMPC review

HTC Shift CDMA EV-DO UMPC review

HTC have made a name for themselves with capable, business-friendly smartphones, and when back in March 2007 they first suggested they were turning their hand to the UMPC market there was no shortage of interest. Boasting full Windows Vista support, as well as a cut-down quick-start SnapVue interface for basic tasks, QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen and multiple wireless options, the HTC Shift was hailed by some as likely to be the first decent UMPC. The subsequent journey from announcement to actual launch - a point first estimated for Q3 2007 - has been punctuated by delays, wavering interest and more than a little criticism of how competitive its specs are in light of the latest competition; HTC sent over the new CDMA version of the Shift, complete with Sprint EV-DO support, for SlashGear to see whether time has been kind to the UMPC.

iPhone – PWNED by the iPhone Dev Team, PWNAGE 4 Life!

iPhone – PWNED by the iPhone Dev Team, PWNAGE 4 Life!

The iPhone Dev Team is unveiling today a new tool. They are calling it PWNAGE. Essentially it is to be the iPhone hack to end all iPhone hacks, or something totally opposite of that. This single hack is supposed to make the iPhone so easy to hack, and all subsequent firmware updates so easy to crack, that the iPhone Dev Team will finally be able to get back to doing what they enjoy instead of constantly having to hack the latest firmware.

Why Haven’t We Heard About Linux’s Growing Market Share?

Why Haven’t We Heard About Linux’s Growing Market Share?

Desktops starting with Dell have begun being sold with Linux pre-installed, almost all of the new UMPC Eee-like notebooks that are selling in extremely large numbers these days are coming with Linux pre-installed, Everex is pushing Linux desktops through Wal-Mart, and lots of new computers are getting SLED certified or some other form of Linux certification. Add to that the increased popularity of all things Linux, the increasing ease of use of Linux as a desktop operating system and it has me wondering why there hasn’t been a spike in Linux’s market share?

Linux couldn’t even beat out Windows 98 until sometime between August 20th and August 30th of last year according to W3Counter. According to that same site, since the 10th of May last year until the 29th of February this year Linux has only seen a .76% increase in its market share, which still only brings it up to a market share of 2.01%.
