It’s official: the guys at Sony Insider are flippin’ Nostradamuses. Nostradamusi. Nostradami. They are any of those three, because the latest incarnation of Sony’s Walkman has been unveiled at CES, and the gadget’s specs are almost exactly the same as the ones that Sony Insider leaked about a month ago.

Do you remember the urine filtering machine that Kevin Costner used in Waterworld? Do you remember Waterworld? What was I talking about again? Oh yes, batteries. Aqua Power System has developed batteries that can be recharged using fluids such as beer, apple juice, cola, saliva and urine.
With a name like Planet Pachinko, you might expect this game, which is set for release next week in the U.S. on WiiWare, the Nintendo Wii’s marketplace for original games, to actually be a pachinko game.
Proving once again why they call themselves America’s Finest News Source, The Onion have exclusive footage of the next illogical step in the evolution of the keyboard. Of course the best way to get exclusive news is to fabricate it.
The latest and greatest iPod/iPhone compatible speaker system from iHome is here, and it sure looks iGood.
The iHome iP1 features a striking industrial design with two oversize cylindrical woofer chambers, poking through a sleek smoked acrylic faceplate which also houses a pair of high frequency drivers.
People have been using Linden Labs’ virtual world Second Life as a meeting space for a while, so I’m not surprised to hear that people are doing the same in PlayStation Home, Sony’s own avatar-driven online social community.
You could easily buy your own binary clock or watch, but is that really in the spirit of such a timepiece? One could easily argue that a purchased binary watch just isn’t quite geeky enough. If you want to show your real geek cred, you’ve got to bust out some tools and make your own.
