ZipKord Retractable Earbuds
My wife always says that I’m obsessed with wrapping up my earbud phone cords when I’m done with them.  What can I say?  I like things tidy and neat, at least when it comes to gear, considering how expensive things can get.  Imagine my curiosity when I discovered that ZipKord offers a pair of in-ear buds that, get this, auto-retracts the cord for easy storage.  We here at Gear Live had to check it out.

Samsung SCH-A790 ReviewFinally, Verizon Wireless is adding a GSM phone to their product line. In fact, it is the first phone in the United States that can roam on both GSM and CDMA networks. Not bad. The reviewer notes that while it is nice to finally have GSM on Verizon, GSM roaming is going to cost you a pretty penny. It seems Verizon is slowly starting to offer the features that those on other carriers already have, starting with the Motorola V710 with Bluetooth. Now if only they would make these things as user friendly as the other carriers. And what the hell is up with the keypad?

Archos AV400 Video Recorder Review

There's something to be said for the promise of convergence. Having one single device that handles multiple tasks will save you carrying space at the very least. At its best, you can save serious dough when a unit is more than the some of its parts. Today, Gear Live takes a look at Archos' latest offering, the AV400, a DVR-like recorder that also allows you to view photos and play music.

Gear Live Playlist Music ReviewsApparently we are flying the Union Jack in this edition of Gear Live Playlist. Four of the five artists are UK acts, including a few rock bands and a couple of British rappers. Yes, I said British rappers, no longer an oxymoron. Both Dizzee Rascal and The Streets are considered rappers, but both artists bend the definition of that word to its limits. The Libertines and Muse both have released solid efforts, and finally, Johnny Cash's "At San Quentin" is a record that everyone needs to own. So, enjoy our trip that begins in the British Isles and ends in maximum security prison, here's Playlist.

Burnout3



This has been a pretty exciting week for me. First I was able to snag a hard-to-find Rio Carbon unit. Then I managed to pick up EA's latest racer, Burnout 3 for the Playstation 2 on its release date. After getting tired of waiting for the next Gran Turismo, I decided to give this racer a try. My library really needed a solid traditional racer, and boy does this thing deliver. We know that all of our readers love to play games as well, so click below to read Gear Live's first of what we hope will be many game reviews to come.

Rio Carbon 5GB Player

Leave it up to Rio to make a product so hot that you can't find it anywhere, except in the back closets of your local Best Buy. There weren't any on display, but you see, it always pays to ask. Even the limited edition, with a run of only 500, was sold out in a matter of a couple days! Gear Live finally has its hands on Apple iPod Mini's direct competitor, the Rio Carbon 5 GB digital audio player. This little number sports an extra gig of space than the Mini, offers 20 hours of life on a Lithium-Ion power supply, and is supposed to have one of the best desktop software systems available.
