The same recently happened to Technabob reader Jasper Stevens, and he decided to do something about it instead of the traditional call Microsoft tech support; wait for cardboard coffin; wait for refurbished 360; pray it doesn’t RRoD again cycle.

Dualink iPod and iPhone Cable Should be Bundled With Macbooks

Dualink iPod and iPhone Cable Should be Bundled With Macbooks
Isn’t it funny how businesses seem to love and hate their customers at once? Take Apple. Their OS is extremely easy to use and is in my experience just a tad more dependable than Windows.

Monochron Pong Clock is a Lot Geekier Than It Looks Like

Monochron Pong Clock is a Lot Geekier Than It Looks Like
Sander Mulder made a Pong Clock way back in 2005, but Limor Fried of Adafruit Industries ups the ante with the Monochron, a Pong-themed clock for tinkerers. If you want to have one you better know how to solder, because the Monochron will be delivered to you unassembled, and by that I mean you’ll have to install all the resistors and capacitors yourself.

We’ve featured a number of unusual finds from Korea’s EarlyAdopter over the years, but this is the first time I’ve seen them come out with their own electronic hardware.

Growin’ Up Speakers Need to Make Like a Tree and Leaf
