Have a look at this new ad spotted by PalmAddicts, if this is true and not a photoshop masterpiece then it looks as if Palm will finally be making a combat by introducing a new Centro!? Many feel hopeful about this, I personally haven’t been attracted to touching any Palms for quite sometime and it would be nice if this Centro 2 would have sliding keyboard hidden somewhere too! Does anyone else know anything about this?
After we featured the cracked screen iPhone a few days ago, here we have another gem from eBay. This is a first gen Apple iPhone 16 GB gilded in 24K gold by Sayn Design using nano technologies making it scratch proof. This has been done in Germany and comes with certificates confirming and reassuring you that its made of the highest quality possible. It is brand new and comes with what you would expect in the box, its already been unlocked and is currently in firmware 1.1.4. The price for it is not for bid but only through buy it now and is a massive $2,000 USD which is equivalent to £1,042.05! This I suppose if you’re a millionaire you probably wouldn’t mind having one of these, this would match nicely with the gold plated Porsche Convertible we previously featured!
One man from the UK by the name of jube808 is a fan of the PSP but he feels there should have been alot more functionality to the PSP when it first came out. He has therefore set goals to recreate and modify a PSP himself to the way that he thinks it should have been when it first came out. His PSP mod will include improving battery life, a better control pad and most importantly touch screen!
So called the ‘PSP Touch’, he has now been able to achieve this and two videos have been found showing this in action. However, he is yet to achieve his other aims, hopefully we will hear more news about his project…
Check out the two videos recently found on YouTube… Continue reading »

I suppose these latest in geeky fashion don’t necessary have to be for girls, you can wear them as well if you’re a man if you’re used to wearing earrings! Though these will cost you as much as $19 USD a pair, BlackBerry fans will love to get their hands on a pair of these. Just one thing though (my advice), if you’re wearing these, try not to put your BlackBerry phone next to your ear at the same time, that would not look so fashsionable, just extremely geeky…
This is the world’s first of its kind, everything in this flash drive as pictured is not what you would find from the one you have in your pocket right now. This corn flash drive is actually made from polylactide plastic that is based from corn, hence I suppose the design! With very limited details availabe at the moment, all we know is that the Hong Kong based company, Hoshino has been able to produce this entire drive even with its component biodegradable. There is one catch though, because of its specially made material, it’s biodegradable function is limited, which means you don’t just chuck it out into the bin, it needs to be sent to a recycling centre, but who knows maybe even the plastic bottles recycling centre can deal with it? I’m sure we’ll hear more about this eco-friendly piece of gadget very soon.
Lego is probably one of the things that we find most enjoyable to talk about here on this blog, unfortunately its not easy to build every from Lego. Luke Andersen, a computer science major student from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, decided that he wanted to have something special for a PC, something with a wow geeky factor. So he made up his mind and first created the plans for his PC via a simple CAD program. Then he bought 1,238 Lego pieces (for a total of $140) to assemble his masterpiece as pictured, his design includes a removable panel which is pretty clever because he’ll always be backed up just in case he needed an upgrade. Another clever thing about using Lego to build his PC tower is that he can probably design places where he could easily take chunks of Lego out in the situation that the PC overheated.
And if he didn’t like the design, he could always smash it and rebuild a different design, that’s $140 well spent! Continue reading »
