Genius GHP-04NC noise cancellation headphones revealed

If you're like me, you're always on the lookout for a decent pair of headphones. I have several pairs of earbuds and they just don't do it for me. I mean, my ears are small and they just plain hurt! So, headphones that cover the whole ear are a real plus in my book, and the GHP-04NC headphones from Genius seem to have a lot going for them.

Sprint to get Kyocera Sanyo texting phone

Sprint to get Kyocera Sanyo texting phone

Even though AT&T just received a bunch of new phones that focus on texting as a primary feature, Sprint is not a company to be outdone and have just announced the Kyocera Sanyo SCP-2700.

This latest texting phone is mostly keyboard and somewhat cheap looking. But that's okay. This texting device hones in on one or two primary features, meaning extravagance isn't required. Other features include the Sprint Seven email program, Microsoft Exchange support, a 1.3-megapixel camera, speakerphone, Bluetooth, GPS and more.

The screen measures in at 2.2-inches with a 320 x 240 resolution. One cute feature is a dedicated button for inserting emoticons. But just because there are texting features aplenty on this phone, it's by no means smart. You can get the SCP-2700 on May 10 for $29.99.

Take the guts of a Sega Dreamcast, fashion an ejecting GD-Drive mechanism and stuff it all into a 15-inch monitor housing, and you may end up with this: the Dreamcast Tablet.  Maker WERD of the Benheck forums also stuffed some batteries in there too, meaning the console is now good for up to 3.5hrs of standalone runtime.
