Roxio debuts $100 Game Capture device

Posted in gaming accessories by Conner Flynn on March 15th, 2011

Want to record your latest Killstreak? Did you shoot some newb in the arse and your friends don’t believe you? Here’s a cheap and easy answer to your problems. Roxio’s new Game Capture device will be available later this month for just $99.99.

For that price, you can’t expect miracles though. I will only capture video at 480p, although you can still play at up to 1080p on your TV. PC gamers can also use Roxio’s new PC Game Capture software to record their games, and both versions come with a variety of editing tools so you can edit your clips.

Verizon breaks first day sales record with iPhone 4 pre-orders in just two hours

Posted in Verizon by Conner Flynn on February 4th, 2011

Well, that was quick. It took Verizon just two hours of having the iPhone 4 available for pre-order to break its all-time record for first day sales of a single device. That’s even more impressive when you consider the fact that it only opened up pre-orders to its own subscribers, and it started at the dead of night.

This means that between 3AM and 5AM yesterday morning, more people ordered the iPhone 4 than Verizon has been able to sell on any full product launch day. We don’t have actual numbers, but it is obviously a lot.

Activision sets new First Day Sales record selling 5.6 Million copies of Black Ops

Posted in News by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2010

According to initial estimates from Activision, it looks like they have a mega-hit on their hands with Call of Duty: Black Ops. Everyone knew it would do well, but sales of the new game are beyond expectations, having sold 5.6 million copies on its first day. That beats last year’s record set by the Modern Warfare 2 launch of 4.6 million copies sold.

It’s the second year in a row that the Call of Duty franchise has set day one launch records. A shame no one is reading this since you are all playing the game.

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on August 10th, 2010

Nintendo must be pretty happy with the news that the Wii video game console has now sold 30 million units in the US alone. That figure was achieved in just 45 months, making it the fastest-selling console in the history of the industry. Wow.

It also hit the milestone 15 months faster than the next best-selling console. Obviously this is due to the Wii’s innovative gaming experience, even if some consoles do end up collecting dust after a few months when the novelty wears off.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2010

The folks at Samsung are doing the Wave, both figuratively and literally. Samsung didn’t expect their Wave smartphone to be as good a seller as the iPhone or EVO 4G, so the company has reason to celebrate. Their first bada phone has passed the 1 million mark in terms of global sales.

Keep in mind that this figure was reached before it reached it’s 4 week birthday. It will be interesting to see some more numbers as time goes by, but for now Sammy is happy indeed.

Cardboard Record Package doubles as player

Posted in Turntables by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2010

This is pretty awesome design. Sound engineering company, GGRP offers a record inside of a corrugated cardboard sleeve. That by itself is unimpressive, but when it is unfolded, the cardboard sleeve can be converted into a record player.

So you play the record by using the cardboard sleeve it came in and a pencil to turn the record. Instructions are printed on the cardboard sleeve if you need them. Awesome idea. Great promotion tool too.

Car Cam Dually records your driving from multiple angles

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2009

Car Cam Dually records your driving from multiple anglesThere’s nothing new about car cameras that keep a visual record of where you drive, but they are becoming more common. The Car Cam Dually looks like some sort of periscope, but it does add some new features that make it more useful whether someone hits you or you hit them.

It has two cameras instead of one, so you can see what happened both inside and outside of the car. In other words you can have one view that shows the drunk running the red light, and another with your look of sheer horror as you crash into them. The Car Cam Dually will also measure the G forces of your impact and mark the exact location of the accident. The details are on an SD card, so you can pop it into any computer.

Now EVOLTA is back and he’s still all about breaking records and the hearts of fan-girls everywhere. This time he will be riding a mini tricycle in order to set a world record for distance traveled by a robot.

We’re rooting for the little guy, but we aren’t so sure he is gonna make it. I mean EVOLTA isn’t exactly fast is he? The bot does have some upgrades from his previous version however. He can ride a bike and follow an infrared path set up by his human handlers.

The company has added 600,000 net subscribers since January 1st alone. It’s likely only going to go up as customers choose their service over theater tickets or going out on the town to eat.
