Best of the Decade: Science Fiction and Fantasy Novels

So this was way less pleasant than I expected. I mean, we all know top 10 lists are exercises in bogus click-whoring, so standard caveats apply, blah blah blah. But still: painful. (And this is probably the tenth top-10 list I’ve written this month. Some of these books I’ve already summarized three or four times in the past two weeks. …

Testing Out the WikiReader

The $99 WikiReader is a divisive device. Smartphone owners will scoff in disbelief at the sheer audacity of a non-connected portable with a black and white screen that displays text-only Wikipedia entries. “What’s to be done with this WikiReader?!!” they’ll cry out, iPhones brandished and ready to download an infinite number of advanced …

Exclusive Interview with Eerie Von

We’re stepping out of our usual realm of nerdery today to bring a special announcement and interview with Eerie Von of Danzig fame. See, Eerie Von was not only the bassist for Danzig, but he was also the photographer for The Misfits. Maybe you already knew that, but some of you probably didn’t. Just covering our bases.

I’ve …

The Top 10 Gadgets of 2009

Lev and I picked our top 10 gadgets of the year for Time a couple weeks back and then we picked our top 10 gadgets of the year for Techland shortly thereafter. It turns out that both lists are identical. Weird, right? Or maybe you’ve already read about this

I was told that I had to make a video for this list and, well, I had no …

The Top 10 Games of 2009

Peter and I chose our top 10 games of the year. For Time. Then we chose them for Techland. Amazingly they turned out to be the exact same list both times. Here it is.

Or anyway here’s the first 40% of it. The whole list is over at Time.com, for some reason. I don’t want to talk about it.

One good thing about this year’s list: it …

Twitter App Showdown: Echofon Pro vs Tweetie 2

Twitter is a necessary evil. And so is the iPhone. (But that has nothing to do with this review at all.)

It’s an unholy amalgamation. But so much information is readily available on Twitter that it’s become an undeniable necessity amongst Internet junkies. Like everything else in Apple’s App Store there’s an absurd amount of …

Wii Fit Plus Review

With the holiday season now officially in full swing, most American waistbands will be taking the bullet train to Fat City with stops at Flab Creek, Pudge Crossing, and Chub Junction. And while many of us won’t experience any shortage of delicious holiday treats, we’ll almost certainly all be short on time.

For about the price of a …

Tony Hawk RIDE Review: Back To The Drawing Board?

I’ve never been able to play a Tony Hawk game. Not well, anyway.

When the popular skateboarding franchise based on the legendary skater started in 1999 withTony Hawk’s Pro Skater, the title was universally praised. Pushing the right buttons at the right time would allow players to pull off chains of sick tricks never before seen in a …

FLO TV Personal TV: Being a Couch Potato Has Never Been Easier

There’s never been a compelling reason to have a portable TV on your person. Do we really need another way to rot our brains? FLO TV certainly thinks so. The Qualcomm-developed technology began appearing on a handful of mobile phones last year and offers live streaming and previously aired content from a variety of networks. The FLO TV …
