Why You Need the Springpad iPhone App

I’m not the most organized man in the history of men but it’s not for lack of trying. It’s more for lack of will, determination, time, time management skills, cleanliness (both personally and around the house), money, proper genetic predisposition to organization, and more.

Mostly it’s because it seems like too much work, even though …

Whom The Gods Would Destroy: The God of War III Review

In Greek mythology, mortals usually ascend to godhood for acts of great valor or sacrifice, like Hercules enduring the torment of his 12 labors. Kratos, hero of Sony’s God of War franchise, snatched his divinity from Ares in the series’ first game. In the second game, Zeus kicked the angry warrior off Olympus for showing favor to his …

“BioShock 2″ Review: I Need A Nightlight To Sleep

Once again we’re transported back to Rapture, but 10 years after the events that transpired in the first “BioShock” story and we find ourselves trampling through the underwater city as a Big Daddy. I won’t give away any of the story or plot lines because without them, “BioShock 2” is more or less the same game we’ve all …

The Best Review of ‘Avatar’ I’ve Ever Seen

Sick of Avatar yet? Good, because you’re going to want to see this.

This two-part Avatar analysis is half rant, half film facade breakdown. More than a comical comparison of James Cameron’s block busting techniques, it breaks down the plots, sub plots and character development to explain why the entire world has been sucked under the …

Palm Pre Plus Review: Is Plus Enough?

Palm made a splash at CES in 2009 with the announcement of webOS and I’d say they’ve done a good job maintaining that momentum. A year later, they’ve added Verizon and AT&T to the roster and updated both the Pre and Pixi with – what some might call – minor updates. It’s been a week since the Pre Plus (Pixi Plus, too) went on …

High-Quality Skype Calls on the Cheap

Normally when I catch wind of a product that promises to be “enhanced for this” or “optimized for that” I chalk it up to marketing spin and assume it’ll be priced higher than it should be with the hopes of duping casual consumers into buying it. Such was the case with the Freetalk Everyman Headset for Skype, a product that promises …

Nexus One Review: The Hardware Isn’t The Problem, Android Is

It’s never an easy task to review a device that you’ve had for less than two or three or even four weeks. The rush of trying to be beat other outlets constantly hangs over your shoulder. Do you rush to get a review out and subject yourself to the criticism that comes with having left off the most critical or asinine factoid possible? …

ThinkGeek.com a320 Pocket Retro Game Emulator Review

Think back to your childhood. If you were a geek who was born in the late ’70s like I was, what are some of your most cherished memories? Riding your bike? Maybe a little. Thanksgiving in Fargo? Absolutely not. Nintendo Entertainment System, SEGA Master System, SEGA Genesis, and Super Nintendo? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.

For many …

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 …
