There is no doubt that the Kinect for the XBox is one of the best game innovations for consoles in a long time. It's also become a popular little toy for hackers to play with to get it to work in different ways. But one of the shortcomings for the Kinect, is how much space you need in your room to use it. Walk through a Best Buy display and you'll see. The Nyko Zoom, helps out people with space constraints.
If you have someone who travels a lot and loves music on your holiday shopping list, or you just would love being able to get a big full sound from a small box that fits in your pocket, then look no further than a Jawbone Jambox. This little beauty sounds great, is portable and wireless to boot. 3 things that anyone who gets it, will love about it.
Here's a neat gift that any couch potato on your shopping list would love! I know I love my Harmony, because not only is it easy to setup and configure, but it truly is a universal remote. The Logitech Harmony 200 is a cool personal remote you program via your computer. No having to try 50 codes to find the right one.
Are you looking for a cool gift that doesn't break the bank? Then you want to look at a Roku LT streaming media player. It's not a full featured as it's big brother, but it still can stream Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Video plus a dozen or so more. But it does lack a few things, but nothing that I think of as a deal breaker.
Continuing tips for tech gifts for the holidays, we take a look at digital cameras. On Thursday, I'll do a digital SLR, but today I'll talk about a highly rated compact camera, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX9V. This is a 16 Megapixel camera that comes in about $350 retail, and has a lot of great features.
Well, it's Thanksgiving and the holiday season has begun. Many of us will brave the weather and crowds to go out looking for that gift for someone special, be it a family member, distant relative, co-worker or just a good friend. I'll share a few things I have discovered about some of the cool tech gift tips for this holiday.
When I heard about this, I immediately had a flash of the Monty Python sketch of the Spanish Inquisition. Just the way I found out made it kind of ironic and funny. I found out about this, on Facebook. Yes, the most heavily trafficked social networking website in the world. The irony of course that flash mobs are supposed to be a surprise and it was a posted public event. "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!"
You read the title right, and in CAPS no less. Amazon has tweaked their wish list for their website to now work for ANY shopping website you visit. So if I got to AmigaKit.com for some retro computing shopping, I can save an item to a wish list through Amazon and retrieve it later.
The L.A. Times has reported on a study done by Ghent University in Belgium, on the effects of video games on teens. They took a group of kids, divided them up by how much time they spent gaming and looked at how much their brain size grew by and where it grew in the brain.
Just like many other tech companies, Google gets it's share of rumors and speculation. The eye is on them again as a rumored music download service is set to be announced soon, with Universal Music on board for the launch. But Sony and Warner Brothers are said to not have signed on yet. But that's not stopping Google.
When Apple said "No" to Flash on the iPhone because of performance issues, people complained about Apple. Adobe shot back that Flash on mobile devices was coming and the world would be happy again. When it got here, it wasn't very good, and that's being polite. Even after Steve Jobs weighed in on the argument against Flash, people still complained. Now, Adobe has decided to kill Flash on mobile devices. Like I didn't see that coming.
With Borders now just a memory, and their spot in Crossgates Mall replaced with a Christmas store, there is only Barnes & Noble to stand up to powerhouse Amazon. And I have to say, that their job will not be an easy one. But B&N's new Android based Nook tablet, may help as a counter to Amazon's Kindle Fire.
