Computers are all over movies these days, from the ones behind the scenes that create gosh-wow special effects to the ones on screen that are the constant targets of ridiculously good-looking hackers. What's rare is finding movies where computers and...

The top 15 vaporware products of all time

The tech industry has had more than its fair share of products that infamously failed to take off. Some fit the classic definition of vaporware, and were all hype and no substance. A few were simply too far ahead of their time. And others were merely...

Beatles Music Inching Ever Closer to iTunes

It's been almost two years since we first reported that the Beatles were digitally remastering their music catalogue in anticipation of making it available on iTunes and other digital music services.

Sony, iPod make beautiful music together

Sony <a href="http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/home-entertainment/sony-introduces-a-pair-o-docks-for-ipod-279697.php">unveiled</a> a pair of iPod devices Thursday: the ICF-C1iP and the ZS-S2iP, a clock radio and boom box, respectively.

Can't get enough of poker? The Memorex USB flash drive should tide you over between games. The drive's protective cover is styled to look like a small stack of red poker chips, and the drive itself comes preloaded with a Texas Hold 'Em game. Unlike s...

iPod shuffle plays in the big leagues

iPod Shuffle owners no longer have to feel like second-class citizens of the iPod nation. Though the Shuffle's tiny size has led to some interesting accessories (my favorite is the headgear) there hasn't been a convenient way to enjoy all the iPod do...

Your iPod Is good to the last drop

iPod owners might have felt left out when I <a href="http://blogs.pcworld.com/digitalworld/archives/2007/04/this_player_sin_1.html">wrote about</a> the Noritz Juke Tower, which lets you listen to MP3s in the shower, provided they're on a thumb drive....

The new Internet menace: Wilfing
