iShoes version 2 already

So not too long ago I wrote an article about a pair of odd looking skates that were powered by an electric motor and allowed you to be propelled up to about 15mph, now there is already a new version. Same idea, different design.

Personally I like the new design better, but there is no way you are safely taking version two off the paved path because those huge wheels from the last model are gone. On top of that, all the goodies, as in the motor, batteries, all that stuff is now tucked away under a metal cover, so they look better.


Razer Mako 2.1 PC Speakers

This 2.1 PC speaker system is absolutely amazing. Would you believe this thing will crank out 300 watts?

Furthermore its THX certified, and have a Class HD amplifier to power everything. On top of that there are THX Slot Speaker technology integrated into the system with its downward firing mids and highs.


Logic3 JiveBox iPod sound system

Logic3 has launched the JiveBox, an apparently cubed iPod speaker system. If it is a perfect cube, then its 15cm cubed in size, not bad for all its packing.

Inside you will find a 90 watt RMS power source, a sub, 2 mids, 2 highs, an iPod dock, and a Digital Signal Processor. The sub is a 5.25-inch Hi-X woofer, the 2 mids are 3-inches a piece, and the pair of tweeters is 1-inch each.


Samsung i780 being released in Europe in January

Now is it just me or does this thing look remarkably like the BlackJack? I had to double check, and they are two different devices, but the impending BlackJack II and this device have more than some of their appearance’s in common.

This smartphone has 3G HSDPA, GPS, and Wi-Fi, that’s pretty good for a device like this. Oh yeah, you know that one area where the BlackJack models are lacking, the whole lack of a touchscreen thing? Not on this handset, it has a 2.6-inch touchscreen.


Apple OS X moves 2 million copies over the weekend

Since when did Apple’s OS start doing MS numbers? Apparently since the 26th when they released Leopard.

I reckon that’s what you get when you make a quality OS from the beginning and then just continue to improve upon it. 2 million copies is amazing, I can’t wait till Friday to see what their entire first week sales are.


WiiZapper gaming gun to get Europe release pre-Christmas

This Christmas, bring the joy of gunishment into your home.  That’s the message Nintendo will be (covertly) sending to European households, with the 7th December release of their Wii-Zapper gun frame for the Wii console.  Basically a white plastic holder into which the numchuck and Wiimote clip into, the peripheral will be bundled with Link’s Crossbow Training and utilise your existing controllers.



Unboxing: Palm Series 3 Wireless Bluetooth Headset

So today I got a gift on my front porch from FedEx, it was the new Palm Series 3 Bluetooth wireless headset. I like the way it looks, and so far the way it feels.

The headset is made to rest inside your ear, but comes with an ear loop for those like myself that are prone to the loss of things held solely in place by our ears. Other than the additional ear loop, there are a total of 3 ear pads that are each a different size so you can get the best fit for your ear.


Optimus Maximus plays with crowd in Moscow

Whenever we or anybody else reports on developments in Art Lebedev’s Optimus Maximus camp, someone invariably pops up shouting “render!”  Well, either the Optimus guys are getting a whole lot better with their Photoshop skills, or they really did show off a working prototype of the OLED-keyed ‘board yesterday in their Moscow store.



Super Mario Brothers Multi LED Mushroom Pumpkin

If you’re going to have a geek inspired jack-o-lantern then why stick to those pesky candles? Not only does it light up with LED lights it lights up in three separate colors.

The video tutorial shows you step by step how to cut out the Mario mushroom and then how to hook up the shiny lights. A small suggestion, don’t put it outside till it’s completely dark because this is one design that looks really ugly with the lights on. You can’t even tell the thing is a mushroom.


‘Living Dead Dolls’ Sadie Pencil Sharpener

If you use those old fashioned wooden pencils then you might still need to buy a pencil sharpener. Well an artist came up with these ‘Living Dead Dolls’ Sadie Pencil Sharpener that not only sharpen your pencils but will creep out your friends as well.


Spiro Angled Table Lamp from Graham and Green

Generally speaking a lamp is just a lamp usually there isn’t a whole lot to make it stand out from the rest. If you’re in the market for one and don’t want the boring or the cheesy over the top ones then this chic table lamp might be something to look into.

(more…) one-click JailBreak and Installer install

If you have been considering Jailbreaking your iPhone or iPod Touch since the release of firmware 1.1.1 things just got a lot easier. With AppSnapp, the program that is launched from, all you need is your handheld Apple device and a WiFi connection.

Your device has to have firmware 1.1.1 installed, and can be activated or not, if not, AppSnapp will also go ahead and activate your device for you, there are ways to access Safari and navigate to a given URL without activation, so you’ll have to follow one of those guides, but after that, everything else is taken care of. You go to the url, click “Install AppSnapp” at the bottom and then you wait 5-10 minutes, provided you are using a high speed wifi connection, and then you get a screen lock screen, slide the slider and your Apple device is jailbroken and has installed, and has been patched from the tiff exploit.
