Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Accessories

EarLove Ear PlugOne thing many people neglect to take care of is their ears. I have seen so many people on the subway who listen to portable audio devices, and although I am a legitimate five or six feet away from them, I can hear everything that is coming out of their headphones. In the interest of creating something that would be both comfortable, and …

Ads On The iPod Via Firmware?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Misc. Tech

DescriptionMan, this would totally suck. Imagine Apple releasing a firmware update for current iPods (with new iPods coming with the firmware by default) that made the gadget display ads on its screen at various times. Or better yet, 15-20 second audio ads between songs. Even shuffle owners aren’t safe! Luckily, this is just a gag. Let’s hope Big Steve doesn’t get any ideas.

Looking At Napster To Go

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Portable Audio / Video

Napster LogoYou know, I have been playing around with Napster To Go for about a day or so, and I must say it is growing on me. The interface could use a little work, but the fact that I can pull up and listen to just about any song at any time is the real draw (and, the point actually) of Napster To Go. You …

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Video Games

Nintendo Revolution

Hard to tell, obviously, in this day and age. My guess is that it is a very clever mock up. I wouldn’t mind if it was though, just as long as it doesn’t end up being

purple

indigo. Does this remind anyone of the Sega Dreamcast? More images after the jump.

Go On A Rampage With Mario

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Internet, Video Games

Mario RampageI always thought simply jumping on an enemy’s head just couldn’t be enough to thwart their efforts - especially when my enemy is a walking dragon! Thanks to Mario Rampage, we can now rest easy knowing that Mario is able to take matters into his own hands the same way they do in the movies. My score? 3075 points, killing 91 enemies and collecting …

Is AllOfMP3 Going Down?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Internet, Music

DescriptionWell, we knew it was inevitable. It appears that one of my personal favorites sites on the internet, AllOfMP3.com, may finally be in a position to be shut down. While many figured what they were doing was okay by Russian standards, our friends in the Russian police force felt otherwise. Now they are under criminal copyright investigation due to their pay-per-megabyte music model. Say it …
