Ask the Gear Chick Gear Live



With all the email we get at Gear Live regarding technology, opinions on what people should buy, and the like, we figured it was time to start a mailbag column. We thought long and hard about how to go forward with the new column, and it soon became obvious. We needed a Gear Chick. Is there anything better than a woman who loves tech? Didn't think so. They are a rare breed, and it took a while for us to find that one woman who fit the bill - but we did it.

Meet Lauren, the new Gear Chick. She will be answering your emails on all things related to gear in Ask the Gear Chick each week. You can reach her at gearchick@gearlive.com. Here is her first column:

Welcome to Ask the Gear Chick. It isn't too often that you see a chick on Gear live but with my new column, that might just change things around here! Here's the basic idea:

You write me an email and ask some questions. I will pick a few to answer each week and you'll get an honest answer or opinion from a real tech girl.

The One Ring to Rule Them All...

Man, how cool is this! Yesterday I received a catalogue from the Noble Collection company, which showcased some really beautiful sculptures and replicas for your desk or home. If I had room in my current place, I would totally jump for some Lord of the Rings gear, like the replica shown here. I also liked the Constellation Draco Compass and the Da Vinci Flying Machine. Very classy conversation pieces, indeed. Check out their entire online catalogue, or even better, order a print copy so that you can see them close-up in nice setting. You'll be impressed.

Nintendo DS

While the ability to share one cartridge for two systems is nothing new...being able to do so wirelessly is. Even more interesting though, are Nintendo's ideas to offer downloadable demos from wireless kiosks at various game stores. The most eye-catching idea of all however, would be plans to wirelessly download a new Pokemon by having your Nintendo DS at the movie theatre when a given scene plays out on the franchise's film. I knew there had to be an easier way to get that blasted Mewtwo!

  "Yeah, you wish."

Nuby Resident Evil 4 Controller Chainsaw



In what has got to be classified as truly weird, and probably downright non-functional, Nuby Tech is developing a new controller for the Nintendo Gamecube which is inspired by the upcoming Resident Evil 4. While special game-based controllers are nothing out of the ordinary, usually it is just a different color scheme with controller remaining pretty much the same. Not so here, as my standard Gamecube controller looks nothing like a chainsaw. While it may be nice for collector's, I don't see much gameplay ability here. Look for the controller in stores in January.

Gmail Drive Web Storage GoogleWe all know how great Google GMail is. People have been clamoring for invitations to Google's email service for months, and those that have it flaunt it. Well, since pretty much no one is going to fill up their Google mailboxes with actual email anytime soon, why not use the space for something more useful? GMail Drive is just the thing, as it turns the filesystem used on your GMail account into a virtual hard drive. It will show up as a drive within Windows, and you can drag-and-drop files directly to your Google webspace! The downside? You can not upload files larger than 10 MB, which is the GMail attachment size limit. More info on the product:

GMail Drive is a Shell Namespace Extension that creates a virtual filesystem around your Google GMail account, allowing you to use GMail as a storage medium.

GMail Drive creates a virtual filesystem on top of your Google GMail account and enables you to save and retrieve files stored on your GMail account directly from inside Windows Explorer. GMail Drive literally adds a new drive to your computer under the My Computer folder, where you can create new folders, copy and drag'n'drop files to.

Oh, and speaking of Gmail, the Gear Live Gmail Giveaway is still in full effect. Click around, you may just nab yourself an invite.
Mac OS X XBOX InstallWith all the various XBOX hacks available, you would think that most would be satisfied with having huge hard drives in their consoles to fill with games. Of course, it's not the right thing to do, but it is the truth. Well, never underestimate the power of the geek. You can now run a completely full (and completely slow) version of Mac OS X on your XBOX. It does take some work, and it is through using the PearPC emulator through an XBOX Linux install - but it's still very cool. If you want to try and install OS X on your XBOX, you can find all the instructions here.
