U-Move Wii Controller Will Keep You Moving, Won't Take No For an Answer

The U-Move nunchuck controller is like a drill sergeant for the Wii. This little peripheral uses a pedometer to keep track of every step you take, and will let you know exactly how many calories you burn while playing any Wii or Wii-Fit game. Thing is, you'll have to keep moving at all times, in order to "energize" your on-screen character. The minute you stop bouncing around, your thumb...

Science Proves That the Remote Is Stuck Under the Cushion

We're not exactly sure why, but there's something really satisfying about science proving conventional wisdom right. A recent survey conducted by Logitech has confirmed what we've all long known: that, if you've lost your TV remote, it's probably between the couch cushions. In fact, there's a 49-percent chance it's there. Tied for the second most likely hiding place are the bathroom and a dresser...

Memjet Bringing Its Mind-Bogglingly Fast Printers to Market

Thirty pages per minute is fast for an ink jet printer. Very fast in fact. So, how do you react to an inkjet printer that pumps out between 60 and 70 pages per minute? We think the proper response is stunned silence. Memjet's new inkjet printer tech is able to spray a page with ink in a single pass, rather than having to travel across the page several times to produce an image. At CES, the company...

Iomega Partners With Boxee, Enters Streaming Media Market

It's been pretty obvious since day one that Boxee envisioned its software running on a variety of devices, and that the D-Link Boxee Box was just the beginning. Now Iomega (of Zip Drive fame) wants in on the burgeoning streaming media box market and, instead of flocking to Google TV, it picked the upstarts at Boxee to power its new line of Iomega TV devices. Though the outward design is...

Samsung Debuts World's Lightest Active 3-D Glasses, Still Look Dorky

Companies are working hard to change the perception of active-shutter 3-D specs as bulky and unsightly, so it comes as no surprise that Samsung enlisted design firm Silhouette to create the world's lightest 3-D frames. The glasses, which weigh 28 grams (about 0.06 pounds), house all of the electronics in compartments at the back, charge wirelessly and turn on and off automatically by detecting...

Gift Guide: All-in-One iHome iB970B Charging Station for Under $100

We're willing to bet that you have at least one special electrical outlet that plays host to an overtaxed and exhausted power strip -- you know, the one swarmed by chargers for your cell phone, iPod, PSP or Nintendo DS, and perhaps an iPad or e-reader for good measure. (That's not even counting your roommate or significant other's contributions.) For overwhelmed sockets, we'd recommend the...

Case-maker Case Scenario and the color pros at Pantone have crafted a multi-colored range of iPhone 4 and iPad covers. Whether you're looking for the understated grays of 418C or the neon intensity of 354 C, these vibrant cases, based on the standard Pantone colors, should please any designer or printer.

Verizon's High-Speed 4G LTE Network Goes Live on December 5th

At a press conference today, Verizon officially unveiled plans for its new 4G LTE (long term evolution) network. On December 5th, the new, speedier network will go live in 38 metropolitan areas, including New York, Chicago, Seattle and, perhaps in time for CES, Las Vegas. The first two devices to take advantage of the new data network will be a pair of 4G USB modems: the LG VL600 and the Pantech...

Brazilian Cult Bans USB for Being Satanic

Paz do Senhor Amado, a Brazilian evangelical Christian cult, has asked its members to abandon USB devices because the symbol for the port resembles a trident -- which, of course, Satan wields to torture souls in Hell. The cult's leader, Welder Saldanha, says that anyone using a USB is, in fact, a Satanist. Saldanha suggests using Bluetooth instead, but we're too lazy to pair everything. So ALL...

Hook Yourself Up With the Best Wireless Keyboard and Mouse Under $100

A reader writes: I've taken to plugging my laptop into my HDTV when watching Hulu, streaming Netflix, or when I'm tired of squinting at my tiny screen. Unfortunately, I've discovered my arms are not long enough to reach the keyboard and touchpad when I'm laying on the couch. I need a wireless keyboard and mouse that will let me not only take charge of the Netflix queue, but also bang out an...

TSA Bans Large Printer Cartridges From Passenger Flights

If you were planning on traveling with a suitcase full of printer cartridges, we've got some bad news. The TSA has decided to ban printer and toner cartridges that weigh more than 16 ounces from both carry-on and checked luggage on all flights bound for U.S. destinations. But it shouldn't surprise you to learn of the new prohibition, considering the bomb scare two weeks ago. Explosive devices...

What's the Best Affordable, Non-Dorky Bluetooth Headset?

So my city is cracking down big time on driving while talking, but my kids call me to pick them up from school. I need to use my phone on-the-go. I'm going to breakdown and ask for some help with a solid, non-flashy Bluetooth headpiece. I don't want to be that lady muttering to herself, but safety first. Also, I am a complete ditz when it comes to recharging my devices, so I need something with...

Logitech K750 Keyboard Charges on Solar Power, Calculators Not Impressed

Solar power continues to gain traction as a viable energy source. Although the expensive technology still seems out of reach for most consumers, Logitech is installing the increasingly popular panels on a mainstream product. The company's new Wireless Solar Keyboard K750 sports a thin, one-third-inch profile, a series of ambient light solar panels (which can reportedly charge even indoors) and...

Quirky's USB Hub-Organizer Cranes Its Graceful Neck for Clumsy Lummoxes

If you're clumsy like us, you've probably bumped a USB drive loose from the computer at least once in your life. With luck, the files stored on it weren't damaged when this happened. But, rather than just hoping for good fortune, you'd be better off checking out the new USB hub from the consistently awesome designer, Quirky. Dubbed 'Contort,' the four-port hub and cord organizer sports a flexible...

New Print-n-Sniff Ink Jet Will Likely Just Jam-n-Stink

Scratch and Sniff stickers exploded in popularity during the glorious early '80s, but the trendy olfactory simulators rapidly faded into obscurity. For some reason, Japanese scientists apparently hope to revolutionize the forgotten, fragrant industry by incorporating scent production with modern technology. Keio University researchers reportedly worked in conjunction with Canon to hack -- and...
