Online Music Alarm Clock Wakes You Up With Your Very Favorite Music

If you’ve ever wondered whether you could spice up your early morning wake up calls and make them more interesting, you’ve probably considered one of the crazy alternative alarm clocks you see around nowadays. Things like alarm clocks that run away from you, that go off with a bang, or –  my personal vindictive favorite –  ones that make you do a complex puzzle to switch off the sound.

Exclusive: Hands On With The World’s First Fully Plastic E-Book Reader, The Plastic Logic PL100

We managed to grab a couple of hours face-time with Sriram Peruvemba, chief marketing officer of E Ink Holdings, the other day and ran through a couple of the new products percolating out on sale using the ubiquitous E Ink display technology. The last time we met he showed us some prototype stuff which was very interesting, and this occasion was just as exciting, since we got an exclusive first look at the brand new, hot off the shelf Plastic…

iPhone 4S vs Samsung Galaxy S2 – which is better?

Fresh from the glory of their BBC scoop yesterday, the good folk at T3 have just posted a comparison piece looking at the iPhone 4S vs the Samsung Galaxy S2 superphone. They rather politically avoid giving a verdict on which is best, but we all know the truth, don’t we Android Fanboiz? Check out the video here.  After the antennagate issues with the iPhone 4, Apple has rung the build changes for the iPhone 4S. While it’s the same form factor…

Don’t have a camera? Youtube makes it easier for you to make and post videos

Making a video and putting it onto Youtube doesn’t require a lot of effort these days. A lot of video editing software now has the functionality to directly export your work directly to the video sharing site. However, if you don’t have access to a video camera, it can be rather hard to make something Youtube-worthy. That’s why the company has teamed up with Xtranormal, Stupeflix and GoAnimate to make video creation a little easier. While you could have used…

Oceanographer’s Video Camera – deep dive digital deluxe

This Oceanographer’s Video Camera is apparently the bee’s knees, or shark’s sideburns or something. The working bits are encased in super tough ABS and aluminium and it’s rated to keep shooting down to 300 feet of briny ocean. You can grab six hours of footage per session, as well as still shots, all in super high definition, and we’re figuring those lights will have you mistaken for a denizen of the deep in no time at all. Priced at an oxygen depriving…

Facebook is now streaming movies

If you have the desire to stream a movie to your computer, you have plenty of options. Netflix and Hulu come to mind, along with half a dozen others. Of course there is a new kid on the block hoping to deliver video to your computer. Strangely enough, that kid is Facebook. I’m really not sure why on earth Facebook needs to stream movies. After all, the videos and music on people’s pages is what drove me away from Mypace….
