Rumor – Google to announce phone plans in two weeks

Rumors about a potential Google Phone have been floating around the net for as long as I can remember. Or at least for several months now. The rumor mill has placed Google in talks with a number of different carriers and manufacturers over the course of the year, all without any solid confirmations from Google. However, if the Wall Street Journal’s hunch is correct, Google will put an end to all the speculation in just two more weeks.


Rumor – 40GB PS3 will have 65nm Cell chip

By now we’ve all heard about a new 40GB model of the PS3 that will be available very soon. However, the big question is what exactly will be under the hood of the new console. We already know that it won’t be playing nice with your old PS2 and (gasp) PSX games. Rumors are now pegging the 40GB PS3 as having something else different under the hood.


Torpedo Projector – You get what you pay for

If you’re looking for a cheap projector (yes cheap, not just inexpensive) then the Torpedo Entertainment Projector is exactly what you’ve been looking for.


Logitech and Skype roll out new webcams

I’ve never been a fan of videoconferencing. Then again, I’m not really big on talking on the phone either. I’m perfectly content with using an instant messenger for most forms of communication. That’s not to say that I can’t appreciate the uses for the technology. Skype and Logitech have teamed up to make the best-looking picture possible when utilizing new Logitech webcams.


SiliconDrive USB Blade – Size matters not

If you’re looking for a new solid state drive, you’re not going to find a lot of them that are much smaller than this one from SiliconSystems.

The SiliconDrive USB Blade is roughly the size of a postage stamp and is boasted to be “environmentally-rugged.” I’m really not sure how something of this size can be considered rugged, but I’ll take their word for it.


Samsung Super-WriteMaster SHS203 – The fastest burner in the world

I’ve been a bit disappointed in the lack of drives that utilize the SATA ports. Sure, there are plenty of hard disks, but what about optical drives? Sure, you could argue that most wouldn’t take advantage of the increased bandwidth of SATA, and you’d probably be right. However, if you’re looking for a DVD burner that can blow away the competition and you’re looking to free yourself from ATA forever, check out what Samsung has to offer.


Eye-Fi – Now on sale for $100

In case you haven’t been keeping up on the latest news, or have a terrible short-term memory we told you that the Eye-Fi was recently approved by the FCC. This of course meant it would be launching soon. We just didn’t expect it quite this soon.


Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween everyone! It kind of sucks that it falls on a Wednesday this year, which means that most of the fun parties and such have already happened. That’s alright though, because Halloween is still one of my favorite holidays.

I’d have to say that it’s just a notch above April Fool’s Day. See, on the first of April you get to pull pranks and get away with it by uttering those two little words. April fools. However, on Halloween you have free reign to scare the bejesus out of anyone you choose.


The Bog Monster to scare the piss out of your friends

Although it might be a little late for most to run out to the stores and snag a few more Halloween decorations before Wednesday, you could however snag them on discount the day after. For yet another cheap laugh get yourself one of these Bog Monsters.

The Bog Monster suction cups under the seat and inside the lid. Just don’t put one of these in the toilet during a drunken party, otherwise, you might notice the next day that your little monster smells a bit like urine.


Butt Crack Buddy Picture Frame

Every person with a desk needs that one desk accessory that causes people to do a double take. Mine happens to be a skeleton bobble head wearing a top hat and a suit. This picture frame not only holds your pictures, it holds the frame between the little man’s cheeks.


The Amazing Chrome Calculator Belt Buckle

If you’re looking for that extra special accessory to really finish off an outfit, then this one would be, well “special”. I don’t care how old you are now, this belt buckle will still get you beat up.


SlashGear Review: O2’s minimalist Cocoon cellphone

Cocoon, if you remember, was a film about a bunch of cantankerous elderly people who discovered the alien key to prolonging their life; with that horrible thought in mind, I grudgingly agreed to review O2 UK’s Cocoon cellphone, fearing that at any moment a trio of elderly men might leap out and deliver a touching message about not marginalising the old.  Thankfully, O2 have been a little more up-to-date with their latest own-brand handset, and while it’s nowhere near perfect have still managed to inject it with a bit more life than some rivals.
