About every 3 minutes a new iPod dock is born. At least this one is little creative.
The $99 FUNKit is a dock for your iPod that features a small robotic “DJ” that moves between two tiny turntables and makes goofy comments while playing your tunes.
The Retro-Encabulator implements the crudely conceived idea of generating inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors and automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Also it features modial interaction of magneto-reluctance and capacitive diractance.
I was doing some investigating on Microsoft’s Japanese Xbox site today, and stumbled across this cool feature called the “UserMap.”
Much like Digg Swarm, the Flash-based application produces a very slick real-time map of player activity on Xbox Live.

The folks over at N-Sider have gone through the trouble to build a handy Wii Cost Calculator to help you figure out what the real damage will be.
It must be the season of giving. First Apple and Creative dropped their prices on their media players, then Microsoft cut the price on their Zune, now Sony has announced that their Playstation 3 (the low-end model,) will drop its price too.
Both Reuters and Associated press have reported that the Playstation 3 20GB model will be reduced by 20% from its previously announced price in Japan.
Everyone’s getting into the digital camera accessory business, what with add-ons available for the Playstation 2, Xbox 360 and Nintendo DS, the PSP was starting to feel left out.

I guess good things come in threes from Microsoft. First, the Zune was revealed to be just $229.99, then the Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive announced for under $200, and now they’re offering to repair any Xbox 360 manufactured prior to 1/1/2006 for free by extending the warranty on those machines by an additional year (over and above the orirginal 90 days.)
