It’s Simple To Make Video Mashups With Sympler

Attention Ladies and Gentlemen: I think we really need one more way to mash up digital content. Don’t you agree? I mean, I don’t think there are enough options out there. Yay, we’re in luck because Sympler launched an update to their video mashup app this week (version 2.0). It’s actually pretty cool though, so don’t […]

Younity DRM Streaming Sounds Great In Theory But…

  It just doesn’t work. Well, at least it just didn’t work for me. I’ll be the first to admit that user error is possible, likely even, but I did follow all the instructions. What does Younity do? Much like the SlingBox of yore or even more recent products like Plex, Younity’s software installs a […]

The Eco-amp 2.0

This is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen… today. While saying “The eco-amp is manufactured in the USA to contribute to the local economy and to have a minimal carbon footprint” is definitely one way to spin the local contribution, I think I would stick to focusing on it the ease of use of this little […]

OwnPhones 3D Printed Custom-Fit Wireless Earbuds

Bluetooth 4.0   This looks like a pretty nifty concept. OwnPhones Mobile Ear Scan creates a 3D model of your ear, you choose your customizations, and they print the buds just for you. I’m in on the pre-release 50% off mailing list and will fill my ears with this tech as soon as possible.  I’ll […]

Rolling Konus Speaker Chassis Concept

  Despite a somewhat uncomfortable-to-say-in-public name like Rolling Konus (don’t you just feel dirty uttering it), the concept behind this speaker chassis featured over at Yanko Design, is pretty neat. Minimalist and utilizing an almost wheelchair-like concept for maneuvering the speaker to the correct direction, this speaker setup would look great in any post-modern home or apartment.

Amazon PrimeMusic: Ad-free Access To One Million Songs (With Prime Subscription)

In a fairly bold move, Amazon announced that they are making over one million songs available — in streaming format — to Amazon Prime subscribers, free of charge (well, except for your $99 annual membership fee). In terms of adding a value proposition to a digital subscription service though, it just doesn’t get much better […]
