NCAA March Madness Live app comes to iOS, Android by tourney tip-off
Following in last year’s steps, the NCAA and Turner Sports have taken the wraps off their March Madness 2012 goodies for handsets, slates and PCs. Though, unlike its 2011 variants, you’ll now have to part ways with a one-time $3.99 charge in order to catch your favorite college team in action. Paying such a fee will give you an all-access ticket to watch every game during the tournament, which gets rolling this Tuesday, March 13th. Moreover, you’ll also be able to customize channels to your viewing pleasure, test your knowledge in live trivia and check out how the bracket’s shaping up. The action-packed March Madness Live app is available now to folks on iOS, with the Android version coming to “selected” devices by the time the tourney is underway.

Zune Originals shut down, humans revert to being average and uncreative

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Hard to believe that Microsoft’s been offering consumers the ability to customize their Zune purchases for the better part of four years now, but as they say, all unbelievable things must one day face reality. Er, something to that effect. Without so much as a heads-up, the designers in Redmond have apparently decided to shutter the Zune Originals storefront. As of this weekend, no new orders for highly personalized Zunes are being taken, with interested Earthlings encouraged to throw creativity to the wind and opt for a mass produced alternative within Best Buy or Walmart. So, you’re looking at two tidbits of import: if you placed your Originals order at 5PM PT on July 1st, you likely have quite the coveted device headed your way, and if you ever needed evidence that Microsoft was making WP7 its next Zune, well… you’re welcome.

Mozilla launches Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo [video]

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

On Tuesday, Mozilla released the latest version of Firefox 4 for Android and Maemo smartphones. Firefox 4 now includes support for Firefox Sync, which allows you to sync open tabs, history, bookmarks, passwords, and other data, between your computer and your smartphone. The new Firefox allows for tabbed browsing, add-on installation, and features a new, streamlined look. Mozilla says it will also automatically hide the browser controls when they aren’t in use, which should allow users to view more of the website you’re parked on. There’s also options to save PDFs, share pages, and customize the default search engine. Mozilla says that Firefox 4 is up to 3x faster than the stock Android browser. Firefox 4 for Android is available in the Market now, and the Maemo version can be downloaded here.

Creative rolls out X-Fi 2 SDK, developers now free to craft games and apps

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

We’re going way out on a limb here and guessing that Creative’s X-Fi 2 doesn’t exactly have an insane amount of the PMP market share, but for those obsessed with its boyish good looks and world-beating user interface, we’ve got some thrilling news to share. The company has just made public its ADK (Application Development Kit), a Lua-based system where devs are able to “code their own interesting applications and customize the ZEN X-Fi 2.” You’re also able to “create and debug games and applications right from one’s Windows PC,” so any Mac loyalists in the house will have to fire up Boot Camp (or similar) in order to dive in. Hit the source to get your download on, and be sure to drop us a line when your riveting new title is ready for public consumption.

[Thanks, Gavin]

Lenovo’s G560 and G460 laptops now available to order

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

Good news, laptop hunters! No, not those laptop hunters…. Anywho, two of Lenovo’s CES-announced machines are now ready for you to customize and order, with the 14-inch G460 packing a 2.13GHz Core i3-330M processor, integrated Intel graphics, Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit), 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 1,366 x 768 resolution panel, 320GB hard drive, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, dual-layer DVD writer and a 6-cell battery. The 15.6-inch G560 adds a marginally larger LCD and, well, that’s it. Thankfully, both units get going at the same $799 price point, so choosing between the two really boils down to how awful your vision is. Got that, gramps?

Control and Customize iLuv’s App Station Alarm Clock Dock With an App [Docks]

Monday, January 4th, 2010

iLuv, iPhone and iPod accessory maker extraordinaire, has a clever alarm clock dock which uses your Apple gadget and a customizable app as its interface. I doubt it’ll get me out of bed any faster, but it certainly looks great.

The App Station‘s corresponding (and free) iLuv app drives the clock, allowing you to adjust settings and appearances. The entire thing also rotates so that you can have your screen set to your preferred orientation. We’ll see this $130 dock at CES, but you’ll be able to purchase it in February 2010. [iLuv]

Design Your Own Laptop, Phone or Kindle GelaSkin [Skins]

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

GelaSkins makes stylish, reusable skins for iPhones/iPods, Blackberries laptops and Kindles. But now, instead of choosing from their designs, you can upload your own art to customize your gear.

(Disregard the indescribable ugliness of the lead shot and reach out with your imaginations.)

While GelaSkins can’t come out and make this point, their new design process is probably the best way to get your favorite niche, licensed art wrapped around your gadgets. (It’s easier for me to just rip and upload what I want than GelaSkins cutting more deals with companies like Dark Horse.)

The most enticing piece, however, is that the customization process doesn’t seem to run a price premium over standard GelaSkins. Phone skins still hover around $15 with laptop skins running $30. [GelaSkins]
