There are about 200 games on the site such as Magic Academy, Happy Pill, and Mind Me Bloody Beer. Established about 3 weeks ago, the website is already gaining a decent following. High School and upper grades are also encouraged to sign up at no charge and upload videos to be voted on by peers.

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Household, Misc. Tech, USB,

Santa Slide ShowIt never fails. The day after school starts, companies inundate us with Christmas presents and ideas. So our first contribution to commercialism has to be this Santa Slide Show. The 1.5-inch color LCD lets you show off at least 50 images on your Christmas

Holiday Tree or on its included stand. Photos can be easily downloaded with its software and USB cable. The ornament requires 2 AAA batteries (not included) and is available for $34.95 at firstStreet. Purchase two and get a $10.00 discount.

It is capable of recording a 12 second video at 640 x 280 pixel resolution or can capture up to 3 pictures per flight for a total storage of 15 images.

Wolverine EPS Targets Pros

Wolverine EPS

Wolverine’s EPS 250 GB Multimedia Storage Player is a 7-in-one card reader for moving JPEG, Bitmap, Tiff, Text, and RAW images to memory cards. It supports CF, SD & SDHC, MMC, MS, MS-Pro, and XD cards. Add the optional adapter and it will also read MS-Duo, MS-Duo Pro, miniSD, and RS-MMC cards. If you are in it for the music, the EPS has a built in FM tuner, built-in mic and supports MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV, AAC, and CDA. With an optional Cradle System it will record MPEG-1, MPEG-4, WMV9, and Xvid video from your TV/VCR/VTR or camcorder.

Designed for professionals, the battery-operated device is perfect for traveling and comes with earphone, USB and A/V cables, charger, and carrying case. We like the versatility of this do-it-all gadget although the EPS sans options will still set you back $649.99.

Microsoft Increases Hotmail Storage

HotmailMicrosoft has decided to more than double its Hotmail service capacity and will now store up to 5 GB of e-mail messages and images. They are undoubtedly hoping that this move will take them from the number 2 spot and unseat their rival Yahoo. The company also says that its performance will speed up, it will combine duplicate contacts in its address book, there will be a new “report phishing button,” and an option to log in straight to your inbox from the home page.

“We know this is going to be a big hit with a lot of you out there in blog land,” said Ellie Powers-Boyle, a program manager for Windows Live Hotmail.

It certainly is a big hit with those of us who like our Hotmail and have stuck with it despite the mini-storage for all these years.

Digital Cam Sweeps the Scenery

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Cameras, Design, Misc. Tech,

Panoramic Digital Cam

We love the effect of 360º panoramic photos, but unless you are a professional that can afford the large and sometimes overpriced equipment, you just have to be content seeing the work of others’ efforts. Designer Hye-Jeong Yang has come up with the Sony Panoramic Digital Concept Camera that you set on a flat surface at the angle you want and, as it rotates, it takes in the whole view in a single image or video. You can then save it on a memory card. Still at the prototype stage, we suspect it will not be long before it comes to a retailer near you.

Unboxing The Motorola KRZR

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Cell Phones, Features,

Motorola KRZR

Interestingly enough, we unboxed the Motorola KRZR phone without a box. Weird, we know, however the phone arrived from Motorola in a FedEx shipping back. Loose. Accessories were sealed, and the KRZR phone itself was in a neat little pouch - but there was no box to be seen. We figured we wouldn’t let that stop us from sharing the KRZR image love, so click on to head over to our MotoKRZR unboxing gallery.
