My dad made the rather exciting purchase of a jet ski some months ago, and during the summer it was an absolute hoot to go out on the water and race around doing over 100kph (62mph) under the warm sun. I wanted to get some video to show just how quick the jet ski was, [...]
Ah yes, our friends at Apple are up to it AGAIN! (Hmmm this just might become Gear Diary’s longest running, or at least most numerous, series if they keep this up). This time my buddy PatrickJ over on Just Another iPhone Blog reveals the latest app to be rejected from the App Store. Fart app? [...]
Gear Diary has reviewed a few different options for viewing your web cameras remotely. If you want to view your web or IP security cameras via your mobile phone, then Shape Services’ Mobiscope may be just the application you are looking to use. Unlike some options that require a monthly subscription fee, like Total Control, [...]

Budget Gadgets.com is a web site devoted to electronics, gadgets and other fun gizmos all sold at very affordable prices. The company recent sent me a few items to review. The first being their Coca Cola style telephone. Not only does the phone look incredibly realistic but it actually works as a real phone.
Klipsch has given its 2-year old iGroove SXT iPod dock a much needed refresh. Now boasting Apple’s ‘Works with iPod’ certification, the iGroove accommodates all current iPod and iPhone models, and charges a docked device using a 1000mA rapid recharge circuit (theoretically twice as fast as charging through USB). Other enhancements include retuned bass ports [...]
A new article by Robert Capps at Wired called “The Good Enough Revolution” puts forth an interesting hypothesis: the fundamental definition of Quality has changed from delivering excellence in all areas to delivering something that is ‘good enough’ but very easy to use and accessible. Here are some examples: – The Flip Video camera – [...]
I have to admit that I have never been one to dabble to deep in the stock market. Most of my money is in IRAs or index based funds. Plus, I rarely want to have the values too close, because looking at how much money I am constantly losing can get a bit depressing these [...]
The latest bit of recession-reminder news comes to us today from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics: no state added manufacturing jobs in the past twelve months, and 49 of 50 lost jobs. According to the report only Alaska stayed flat, with Ohio, California and Michigan all shedding more than 100,000 jobs in the past [...]
When I heard FrozenByte – the guys who made the games Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds: Survivor – was making a new game I was thrilled and knew I’d want to play it. When I heard it was a fantasy side-scrolling platform action game that required using three players in harmony to solve challenges, I was curious [...]
This is one of those rumors we can’t help but hope is true. AppleInsider is reporting that Gene Munster, senior research analyst with Piper Jaffray, is predicting Apple will add a second US carrier for the iPhone next summer. It is not a new rumor, but with the FCC stepping in on the Google Voice [...]
I’m as great a lover of time saving gadgets as the next person. However this three-in-one lasagna pan seems a tad over the top. I don’t question the ingenuity of it – however the price is off by at least a decimal place. The Skymall catalog lists this pan at an eye-popping $79 (plus shipping). [...]
As much as I may complain about Apple and AT&T these days I still love my iPhone 3GS. In fact it is BECAUSE the iPhone is as remarkable as it is that I get frustrated with Apple and AT&T standing in the way of the device reaching toward its potential. The iPhone is the one [...]
Let’s just get this out of the way quickly. Word Ace is my new favorite game, and is the best game currently available for the Palm Pre. OK…I know saying that any game is better than other games on the Palm Pre may not be much of a compliment…but this really is a fantastic game.
