by 12 comments

Two all-time favorites from the glory days of id Software have now made their way to the Palm Pre (of all devices), continuing our retro 3D shooter theme.

Quake for the Palm Pre

Say hello to Doom and Quake. Although it’s been a while since these games were new, I suspect you’ll have fun playing them nonetheless. Especially, when they’re only at arm’s length wherever you go.

by 17 comments

Right before the start of the new year, let’s jump back a decade for some retro gaming. Duke Nukem Forever may have turned out to be vaporware but that doesn’t negate the fond memories from playing Duke Nukem 3D.

You can find various ports of the game for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X but better still, you can now get it on your Nokia N900

The Lenovo Multimedia Remote with Keyboard is making me lose my sleep

by 11 comments

OK, I admit, I’m not sure if I’ll be able to find a proper application for this wireless keyboard/trackball combo but I just love it and I want it. Its killer looks and fair price turn it into a must-have no matter if you’re a high tech junkie or just like to be surrounded by nice looking things.

What’s stopping me of buying it (and the cause for my sleep disorders) is that it’s not something I’d use every day and so my practical side is putting a really good fight with my “I-want-it-now” side. But allow me to indulge myself with a quick walkthrough of the features of that mouse/keyboard crossbreed.

Shortest day of the year brings shorter YouTube links

by 389 comments

Even if you haven’t heard, you should have felt it: yesterday was this year’s shortest day. It was also the day YouTube links got shorter. So, don’t be scared next time when you see a link starting with “” – it will get you a YouTube video. At first you might not realize how useful that change indeed is. But think twice: as of yesterday you’re able to share any YouTube videos using much less characters. And that’s quite an advantage to you twitters.

Christmas Lights: Origins, an electrifying Christmas story

by 467 comments

Everyone likes Christmas lights, but have you ever wondered how they were invented? Well, someone at Gizmodo sure did. They have an extensive post detailing how the world went from the first electric light bulb to the first Christmas lights setup.

In the olden days, people used candles but that was before Thomas Edison came along. As one of the pioneers of electricity and light bulbs (plus a bit of talent for showmanship) he was the perfect guy to kickstart the whole Christmas light decoration thing.

Buy a Google phone or else… Google will totally blackmail you into buying it

by 9 comments

I’ll probably remember 2009 as the year of my total surrender to Web 2.0. I’ve practically moved all my personal stuff up there in the Google cloud of web applications. I’ve got my calendars, my contacts, some of my documents, family photos, family videos, and my primary email account all sitting nicely in Google’s control. They all sync and play nicely with my smartphone, I have access to them wherever I go and best of all, it’s all free.

I’m already way beyond the “just trying how things will work out” phase and I have committed fully to this relationship.

And then you stumble into one of those funny videos. And it just makes you think – what if…

Iron Man 2 gets its first official poster, coming on 7 May 2010

by 13 comments

I’m sure the huge success of the first Iron Man movie surprised even its creators, so they immediately started making its sequel. And I’m sure Robert Downey Jr will rock the white screen once again.

A few months after the announcement of the sequel, it was confirmed that Tony Stark (the Iron Man character) will also have a part in the upcoming The Avengers, scheduled for 2012. Well, there is a lot of time until we see any of these movies, but here’s the first official Iron Man 2 poster. The release date of 7 May 2010 seems so distant.

While you are waiting for the official high quality trailer (which should be released this month), you can enjoy the leaked 5 minutes teaser from the Comic Con last summer.
