500 millionth, actually... but one of the press kits had an embarrassing typo in it. Also, everybody who makes slates is dropping Windows (except HP), we now have lasers shooting down airplanes, and a flashlight for the iPhone is actually a secret tethering app.Subscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more

Forget about the future where we all walk around in silver unitards. How about a future where we dump a bunch of groceries on the counter and the counter tells us what we can make? That's the future kitchen user experience of Oasis, according to Intel Labs, which showed it off at the ninth annual Intel Research Day.
Oasis uses projected displays on everyday household surfaces, like kitchen countertops, to create interactive "islands." The technology lets you interact with an ordinary kitchen counter in a way that feels completely natural and intuitive. It's done by retrofitting … Read more
On today's show, apparently someone left the God particle in a bar or something, it's always sunny in Chile, and how to be "that guy" by bringing your 27-inch monitor to a coffee shop. Oh, and Isaiah Mustafa, otherwise known as the Old Spice guy, is now making custom videos for Twitter people. Without his shirt, of course. Thank goodness.Subscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more
Germany says nein! to Facebook spamming non-Facebook users. Also, Amazon gets a patent on the Barnes & Noble Nook dual-screen concept, and Netflix begins closing the window on when new movies are available for streaming.

Maybe an empty stomach doth place a halo around this waffle maker. But boy, does this look scrumptious. Even better dripping with golden maple syrup. But back to the machine. What makes this interesting is that creator Triangular Concept has taken a novel approach to waffle making.
Rather than opt for the familiar squares and circles, this one turns out 9-inch-long waffle lollies in less than two minutes each. Not only does this mean less cutlery to wash up (hurray), it makes for convenient party food on a stick.
About the only unappetizing fare here is the pricey 715 euros ($… Read more
I think we can all agree on one thing: flying cars may be cool, but it's going to be a slaughter in the skies--at least at first. Also, the Verizon iPhone is here again! Yay! We'll believe it when we see it, just like we'll believe that Google Me is real and a real competitor to Facebook when we see it and when Google manages to understand actual humans and what they want in a social network.

I've always been a sucker for all-in-one PCs. There's something uniquely appealing about a desktop that consists of a big screen, a keyboard, and nothing in between. (I know, I'm weird.)
While supplies last, TigerDirect has a refurbished Gateway ZX4800-02 all-in-one desktop for $529.97. Shipping will run you about $15 more.
Though fine for, say, a home office, this strikes me as a nearly perfect kitchen PC. It sports a 20-inch LCD--not too big, not too small--and it's a touch screen, meaning you can navigate Windows (in this case Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) multi-touch-style, … Read more
Refrigerators aren't the most exciting of appliances. They sit there silently (mostly, that is), taking up a lot of room and generally not doing much. However, like practically everything else in life, it is what is inside that counts. Depending on eating habits, refrigerator's interiors can vary wildly, from a frozen wasteland of precooked frozen foods, to a lush garden of fresh fruits and vegetables. While each and every refrigerator may house a different collection of consumables, as the anchor of the kitchen it's designed to always be there when you need it. Perhaps even more so … Read more
