Posted in LCD by Conner Flynn on April 16th, 2009

Fuss Oval LCD TV is...ovalWhat’s all the Fuss about? The Fuss LC-4212B LCD TV is making a huge fuss with its unique shape, which is oval. And that sure beats the typcal sharp edged rectangles we usually see. It was on display at the Hong Kong Electronics Fair from Ultmost Technology.

Is it a huge phone? An LCD pill? A consumer suppository? The new Un-handheld PSP? What do you make of this oddball? Do you like it more or less than the typical form factor? No word on whether this will ever make it into any homes, or what the price may be.

PlayStation Network accounts reach milestone

Posted in Sony by Shane McGlaun on February 25th, 2009

Sony PlayStation NetworkThe Sony PS3 is one of the most popular game consoles on the market. One of the best things about the console for me is that I can use it as a Blu-ray player in addition to a gaming system. I also believe that it is one of the best Blu-ray players around thanks to the continual updates Sony adds to the Blu-ray player via downloads.

Another nice thing about the PS3 is the PlayStation Network and Sony says that the network has reached a significant milestone. After being available for two years and three months the network has exceeded 20 million registered accounts worldwide.

Review: In Your Face iPhone Holder

Posted in iPhone Accessories by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2009

Review: In Your Face iPhone HolderA while back we told you about the iFlyz iPhone holder, designed to hold your iPhone during long flights. It’s a great idea for sure, but you have to question the whole suction cup idea. You don’t want to trust your expensive gadget to a suction cup.

That’s where the In Your Face iPhone holder comes in. It does pretty much the same thing, for the same price, just in a much safer way as there is no suction cup involved. Instead it uses a much stronger spring-loaded iPhone clamp. I’m happy to report that it does it’s job well and has multiple uses while you keep your hands free.

Sony’s 4th quarter profits down 95 percentIt isn’t any secret that things are tough all over. Every company out there is hurting, but Sony’s 4th quarter numbers are really bad. We’re talking a 95% drop in profits.

They managed to pull in only 10.4 billion yen during the 4th quarter, having done 200.2 billion yen the previous year. The numbers tell you that the holiday season was a complete bust for Sony. TVs, PS3s and PSPs just weren’t on people’s lists. The fault lies with you and I, who did not buy/want Sony products.
