DJ Releases Sweet CMYK Records

DJ Releases Sweet CMYK Records
When I was a kid, all the music I listened too came on vinyl. I had the Dukes of Hazzard album on vinyl, and the coolest thing about it was that the record had a picture of the Dukes printed on it.

Thermaltake’s Max 5G Dual Fan Hard Drive Keeps Your Drives Cool

Thermaltake’s Max 5G Dual Fan Hard Drive Keeps Your Drives Cool
It always baffles me when people opt for those lightweight, portable, and small hard drive enclosures. Don’t get me wrong, they are easily portable, but there’s one thing that you should know: fast hard drives can generate a lot of heat, and if you external hard drive will be on for hours, then it’s best to get one with fans.

Kyosho J-Kart R/C Car Drives, then Flies
I’ve seen plenty of remote-controlled cars and helicopters over the years, but I can honestly say this is the first one that I’ve seen that starts out driving on the ground, then instantly takes to the air.

Super Mario Galaxy: One-Man Band Edition

Super Mario Galaxy: One-Man Band Edition
Who says you need an full orchestra to play the soundtrack from a modern video game? Musician Diwa de Leon just needs his a violin, a hegalong, a djembe, a tambourine, guitar, his voice and Adobe Premiere Pro to pull off a fully-realized score – all by himself.

iPad 2 Specs, Speculation and Release Date Rumors
CES and MacWorld are just around the corner, so it’s time for all the rampant speculation to start heating up about what exciting new gadgets are coming out in 2011. Among the rumors, many signs are pointing to the release of a refreshed version of Apple’s iPad (aka the iPad 2), and here’s what I’ve been able to surmise.

Jabba the Snowman

Jabba the Snowman
Okay, this is either the most awesome pile of snow ever, or a great Photoshop job. Either way, with 6 inches of snow in front of my house, I plan on heading out into my driveway later today to attempt to recreate this Jabba the Hutt snowman.

Nokia N8 Shoots Cover Photo for PiX Magazine
I have often complained that my iPhone has a camera that is crap. The images are always dark, blurry, and just don’t look good. The iPhone 4 is a bit better than my 3GS was, but I still can’t get decent shots.

Steadicam Smoothee iPhone Rig Steadies Shaky Smartphones

Steadicam Smoothee iPhone Rig Steadies Shaky Smartphones
If you’ve ever tried to shoot video with your iPhone, you know that while the video quality can be pretty decent, it’s almost impossible to get a truly steady shot when in motion. Sure there are apps which can improve the digital image stabilization, but there’s nothing nearly as good as a real Steadicam.

You’ll Never Guess What Transformers 3 Megatron Turns Into
Michael Bay and company continue to slaughter redefine the classic robot franchise. Movie website JoBlo was able to score a few pics of the action figure version of Megatron in Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon, and…and… he looks kinda bad ass.

Cardboard Polaroid Camera Concept: 2 Pics, 1 Shot
I’m no hardware expert, but for the longest time I’ve been wondering why instant cameras are not commonplace nowadays despite Polaroid’s pioneering technology decades ago. Sure, even our phones can store tons of pics, but nothing beats sharing an actual photo.

ZAGGmate iPad Case Adds a Keyboard

ZAGGmate iPad Case Adds a Keyboard
I am a big fan of my iPad, and a lot of the time I find the on-screen keyboard irritating. It seems laggy to me, perhaps I just type too fast, I don’t know. If I am typing a lot on the thing, I really want to use a keyboard to speed up data entry and ZAGG has a cool new case that surfaced a few weeks back.

Rumor: Logitech Suspends Production of Revue Google TV Box

Rumor: Logitech Suspends Production of Revue Google TV Box
[UPDATE 12/27/2010: Logitech has gone on the record to deny these claims, so it looks like this rumor was unsubstantiated.] When Google TV first hit the market, I wanted it pretty bad. I want to be able to get lots of online content like Hulu and other video sites on my TV in the living room, but I don’t want a PC in there.
