Retro television iPad dock

Posted in iPad accessories by Conner Flynn on August 29th, 2010

While this dock puts your iPad into a case that is far too oversized, we still dig the design. This retro iPad dock was created by Jonas Damon of Frog design. We like it.

But if you are going to create an iPad dock in such a huge form factor, you better at least add some old fashioned channel dials that can control the iPad. Might as well add some rabbit ears too while they’re at it.

Personal Television and Theater Amplifier

Posted in Speakers by Conner Flynn on May 31st, 2010

Getting older sucks. Or so I’ve heard. You don’t have the energy you used to, you can’t stay up as late and sooner or later your hearing is bound to go too. So there’s no shame in amplifying the volume when you need to. Problem is, it makes things loud for those around you.

The Personal Television and Theater Amplifier from Hammacher can help. It amplifies sound from a television, radio, or theater by up to 50 decibels. The device also has a directional microphone that amplifies high and low frequency sounds to produce rich, easy-to-hear tones.

The People of Lava are coming. They are probably crawling out of volcanoes right now and setting the world on fire. Wait, it’s not 2012 yet. Who the hell are the people of lava? The Swedes of course. Who else would offer a set like the one above, called Scandanavia. And the company name gets your attention right?

Scandinavia is their first Android 1.5 42-inch full-HD backlit LED set. It goes into beta testing this summer and on sale in September, followed by 47-inch and 55-inch sets soon after. It will come with apps like Facebook, YouTube, Google Maps, and Twitter, along with a web browser and email client, while other apps will be available from the People of Lava App Store.

Well, apparently this one is finally available. You can get the NanoTV 3G for about $29.50. We still think it would have been cool to slip your iPod into the VHS slot, but that’s just us.

RIM planning to launch full-length TV service

Posted in BlackBerry by Conner Flynn on March 26th, 2009

RIM planning to launch full-length TV serviceRIM is keeping quiet for the moment, but the timing makes us believe this rumor. BlackBerry App World is launching on April 1st so it would be perfect timing for RIM to introduce a television service for BlackBerry devices. Makes sense right?

According to NewTeeVee, “multiple sources” tell them that RIM is planning to announce a “full-episode television service” for BlackBerry users. Supposedly, it will download content via WiFi, so carriers shouldn’t be an issue and using Wi-Fi will avoid clogging 3G networks.

The TV is 56 inches diagonal and features Ambilight technology around the borders for a more immersive experience. It’s a bit strange at first, but movies will look really awesome on it.

NapTV: The lazy way to watch TV
This device has slacker written all over it. I used to think that laying around watching TV was as lazy as it could get. I was wrong. This may be taking laziness and TV to a whole other level. Too lazy to even hold your head up on your shoulders and watch TV? This gadget has you covered if you can step away from your bong long enough to read this.

With NapTV you don’t even have to sit upright just to look in the TV’s direction. You can lay under the damn thing. All that’s required of your sorry ass is to keep your eyes open. It was designed by Sung-kyu Nam, and it even serves as a chair if your apartment is completely devoid of furniture. When you tire of sitting on your butt, just slide under this thing again and tune out the world.

Wal-Mart offering $10 DTV converter box (with coupon)

Posted in Television by Nino Marchetti on February 11th, 2008

wal-mart-dtv.jpgWal-Mart has brought its huge retail muscle into the DTV conversion game set to happen in Feb. 2009 by unveiling at its 3,400 stores a converter. The price you ask? After the $40 digital converter box coupon you can get from the government, the cost is a mere $9.87.

That is right – just under $10 (converter box prices at $49.87 without). That is a slap in the price face of Best Buy, which is selling its boxes for around $20 with the coupon. Wal-Mart is pimping a box done up by Magnavox for its offering, whereas Best Buy is going with its private label brand.
