Ubuntu on your smartphone?

What do you use on your smartphone: iOS, Android, Windows? Well if Ubuntu has its way, it'll become another major player in the smartphone market as well. It's a pretty long video, but well worth a watch (the best phone interface info is between 6:20 and 13:45). What do you reckon? I think I want [...]

This post brought to you by Arcsoft. All opinions are 100% mine. Sure, you can email your friends photos or post them on Facebook, but a couple of photos can't really convey everything you want to share about your day or event.  So you could create a photo album and have them printed up, but [...]

LG 300W Sound Bar System review

LG01

I do enjoy my 47" LCD TV, but the sound quality never seemed to equal that of the picture.  I realize that it's difficult to get any fidelity out of a couple of puny speakers, however, the alternative of getting a surround sound system was more than I wanted or needed, not to mention having [...]

Sphero Robot Ball review

sphero_box_sm

My initial thought when Julie asked the Gadgeteer Team, who would like to review the Sphero was 'cute but I'll pass'. But upon further consideration, it occurred to me that I have an 11 yr old, tech-savvy son, spaz of a dog and insane cat at home just waiting for something like this to enter [...]

gramaphone

The Gramophone combines sculpture with sound to create a unique speaker system for the iPhone or iPad that will definitely turn heads (and ears). Designed to resemble a Victorian era phonograph, the base of the Gramophone is constructed of solid walnut and the horn is made of iron and brass. The interesting thing about this [...]

If Tim Cook would ask me what changes I would make to the iPhone, it wouldn't take me long to blurt out my top 5 list. Better battery life, widgets, dedicated call answer/end button, dedicated camera shutter button and a notification LED. I don't think Tim cares what I think or want, but I'll soon [...]

Do you charge your iPhone with a boring old cable? What the heck is the matter with you? Are you a gadgeteer or what? I bet these docks from Iron Giant Designs will make you drool. They offer a limited number of docks that are made from a solid hunk of metal or clear material [...]

taskone

When I first saw the TaskOne iPhone case, I was sure it was a joke. It looked exactly like something we'd see as a news posting on April Fools Day. It also reminded me of the the Swiss Army Handspring Visor module we wrote / joked about back in 1999. But guess what? The TaskOne [...]

ubooly

Teddy Ruxpin (animatronic toy from the 80's) always creeped me out with his freaky moving eyes and mouth. I never had one but I wonder how many kids were traumatized by that battery operated story telling bear? Fast forward 27 years and we now have Ubooly (say it like oo-boo-lee), an orange marsupial that can [...]

There's no denying the fact that people love playing games on the iPhone and iPod Touch. Using the capacitive touch screen to play puzzle and word games on these devices is fun and easy. But playing action games using an on screen touch controller is less fun and less easy. At least for me... I find that [...]

We've all been waiting for this day to come and now that Tim Cook has walked off the stage, it's over. We now have to deal with being bombarded by every tech site's rehashing of what was announced today, and I'm left feeling a bit like the end of a holiday dinner. You know how [...]
