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.
We got our first look at the latest Blu ray players from Samsung earlier this year at CES. They were stylish and sleek and offered a nice alternative to some of the bulkier players out there. However, no pricing was announced at the time, but now we got our hands on official pricing from the horse's mouth.
I'm a sucker for cute little office gadgets. They're often cheap and supremely cheesy, but I just can't help myself. Take this Turtle USB 2.0 Hub, for instance. Sure, it's a pretty standard USB hub on one hand, but on the other, it's a cute little turtle. I mean, come on. Who can resist that?
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.
Most car computers concentrate on adding internet access, big sound systems and complex GPS, but Jon Oxer went a few stages further. His 2004 Mazda RX-8 is connected to the internet 24/7, can be remotely controlled via an iPod touch or iPhone, and unlocked via an RFID tag implanted in his arm.

As promised, Samsung have announced pricing and availability details for their new LCD HDTV ranges.

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.
