Stealth Acoustics announces SA8400 multi-channel amp for whole home audio

I like home theater gear, but I like it to be hidden out of the way. I have always been intrigued by speakers that are hidden inside walls and ceilings, but they tend to be hard to install and work with. Stealth Acoustics has a full line of gear for audio and home theater that can be hidden away.

Coby Electronics set to unveil 3D-Audio Sound Bar at CES

I like surround sound as much as the next home theater fan, but the shape of my living room makes it pretty much impossible to have speakers in the back of the room without having them installed in the ceiling. The ceiling isn’t a great option either since my house is two story. That leaves me with a 2.1 setup that isn't exactly what I want.

NewerTech unveils iPhone 3G/3GS window mount

The first time I used my iPhone 3GS as a navigation device in my car a few problems were quickly an issue. First, there is nowhere to place the iPhone in my car where it is easy to see.

New earbuds from Solid Alliance

New earbuds from Solid Alliance

Earbuds have become so boring these days. Sure everybody makes some kind of fruity colored or interestingly textured bud. But those just dont really do it for me.  I would much walk around wearing a pair of Solid Alliances new headphones. Which feature every thing from an apple with arrow through it to mushrooms straight out of a Mario Bros.  If you are feeling especially fun they even have some earbuds with little samurai swords.

When I say new I mean designs, they have done this once before. With the same awesome results. Like really, who wouldn't want to cruise around town with a  Frankenstein esque bolt sticking out of their ear?

Which is in the same range as a real hummingbird!

Cruden Hexatech – The ultimate race car simulator

Cruden Hexatech – The ultimate race car simulator

I like so many other children had dreams of becoming a race car driver. Of course I was forced to abandon my dreams of Mille Miglia and go to college.  About the closest I come to racing is being stuck in traffic and making race car noises with my mouth. All that can change for the low low price of $191,000. Wait what?
