Electric Screwdriver holds screws, screws you out of $4000

Posted in Tools by Conner Flynn on December 14th, 2008

Electric Screwdriver holds screws, screws you out of $4000Here’s an interesting electric screwdriver. It will relieve you of the burden of actually having to hold your screws in your hand. Your laziness will cost you $4000. The Black & Decker LI4000 3.6-Volt Lithium-Ion SmartDriver with Exclusive Magnetic Screw Holder has an extended arm with a magnetic tip that holds your screws in place while you screw them in.

Okay, it’s not just laziness, but I know that’s what you were thinking too. It can be a real pain when you drop screws while trying to line up the screwdriver. Especially on a ladder. Now you can screw with just one hand. It has some other features as well, none of which justify the price. An LED light, 6 position clutch, a lithium ion battery that holds it’s charge for 18 months.

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on November 30th, 2008

Nokia N85 shows up on Amazon: $556 unlockedThe Nokia N85 just dropped with a crazy price. At $556 this is one expensive phone, but Amazon is claiming that’s already been steeply discounted from an out of this world $1,200 “list price.” The phone is available to “buy” right now at Amazon.com, but there’s a 3 to 5 week ship time quoted, so we’re not sure yet if this is the first place where you’ll actually get the hotly-anticipated handset in the States, but if you like, you can give them your money right now. They don’t mind.

Amazon Kindle sold out: Three month delay

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on November 28th, 2008

Amazon Kindle sold out: Three month delayAmazon is having some trouble. Maybe they didn’t count on Oprah selling so many units. Maybe they just are really bad at stock management. Whatever the case, shipping on the Kindle ebook reader is currently listed as 11 to 13 weeks time, completely overshooting Christmas and making deliveries at some point in Q1 2009. This will be the second year in a row that the retailer could not meet demand. Last year, with the device being new, Amazon could at least use the excuse that they were ramping up production.

It was back in October that Oprah Winfrey endorsed the Kindle. Amazon is also rumored to be preparing the Kindle’s replacement, which was once expected to be on the market this holiday season, but now it is expected to be delayed until Q1 2009.

Amazon intros “Frustration-Free” packaging

Posted in Amazon by Conner Flynn on November 3rd, 2008

Amazon intros “Frustration-Free” packagingThis is news to our ears,fingers and teeth. Amazon is questioning the necessity of those rage inducing hard plastic containers that can presumably stand up to bombs and the jaws of life. They’re actually doing something about it. Starting today, consumers who are tired of fighting with this evil packaging can opt for products in Amazon’s “Frustration-Free Packaging,” which offers streamlined packaging that often includes recyclable cardboard.

19 products are currently available in friendly containers from companies like Fisher-Price, Mattel, Microsoft and Transcend. They have hopes of offering their “entire catalog of products in Frustration-Free Packaging” within a few years. Hopefully others in the gadget world will join in on this.

Amazon’s Kindle 2 surfaces

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on October 5th, 2008

Amazon’s Kindle 2 surfacesBoy Genius has some pics of what is in all likelihood the Kindle 2. You’ll notice that this follow-up to the original reader is more rounded, more iPod-esqe, but still in boring white with the same screen. The LCD status bar is nowhere to be seen and a joystick replaces the clickwheel, and so you can avoid accidental page turns, it sports smaller buttons. The SD slot is gone too, since there’s 1.5 gigs on-board, along with grills on back that may mean stereo speakers.

Basically, it’s a lot less ugly. Current Kindle owners can probably skip the upgrade unless the ugliness of the original is really bugging you. No word on the availability yet. Hit the link for more pictures.

Posted in music,Services by Reuben Drake on January 27th, 2008

Amazon announces plans to roll out globally with Amazon MP3 music serviceAmazon today announced plans for an international rollout of the Amazon MP3 music download service to take place sometime yet this year. This announcement is probably the biggest threat to Apple’s mammoth iTunes to date as it likely to cause the reining media download leader to make some changes in coming months to keep up with the competition.

Once Sony BMG came onboard Amazon became the only online retailer to offer downloadable MP3′s from all of the four most major music labels that are all also DRM-free. Amazon MP3 now boasts over 3.3 million songs available with no restrictions on what player or computer the songs can run on, and no restrictions of how many places users can copy it to.
