Japan's Tokyoflash, purveyor of such wacky wristwatch offerings as the Morse Code Watch and Infection--whose face is (obviously!) supposed to resemble a colony of bacteria--wants consumers to tell it which time-telling pieces they'd like to see next.
Will it be an upright ambient-light clock that displays the time through light animation? A spaceship clone with lights and anconnection? A throwing-star-ish model that displays hours, minutes, and seconds on its three arms?
Back when I still had the ATT Tilt, I thought it was uncool that I had to pay about $10 a month to watch TV on the phone via a high-speed Internet connection. This is one of the reasons I moved on to an iPhone 3G.
However, if you haven't given up on Windows Mobile smarthphones yet, hang on, because I have some good news.Spb Software, a Windows Mobile platform developer that makes online games and services for smartphones, announced Tuesday its new standalone application called Spb TV.
The application is essentially a mobile TV player with onscreen … Read more
TinyStopWatch is another addition to the already saturated desktop clock market, but there's nothing about this particular clock that stands out above the rest.
The program launches as soon as you extract it, and a tiny interface appears on your desktop that resembles a digital clock. On the interface are three buttons: Start, Stop, and Reset. The program's settings menu can be accessed from a Taskbar icon. When we first right-clicked on the icon, the menu appeared in Japanese, but we were able to change it to English. The settings are very basic, and include letting you set … Read more
If you're one of those people who depends on chance to make decisions but can't be bothered to carry a Magic 8-Ball around all the time, The New Decider watch from Mr Jones Watches might be the tool for you.
Aside from the regular time-telling hands, this timepiece also displays Yes or No alternately. So, when you are in a moment of indecision, just look down at your wrist and the choice is there for you. It's available online for about $149, and the best news is Mr Jones Watches ships worldwide.
In the U.S., tax season is well upon us. And with the recession in full tilt, you may be--smartly--biding your time to make a purchase. Fear not though, there are tools aplenty to help you keep an eye on the price of something, and swoop in to get it when it goes on sale or the manufacturer offers a rebate.
We've put together a list of 22 different tools that let you do this with relative ease. Most only work on Amazon.com, but a few will keep an eye on the entirety of the Web to let you know about sales, price drops, and increases.
Amazon Price Watch (aka NukePrice.com) Amazon Price Watch may sound like it's only Amazon.com prices, but it actually works with around 100 online retailers. You can have it watch the price of something by dropping its link into the service's Web form, or by installing a browser add-on that lets you start tracking from the retailer's site. Along with price-watching tools, it's also got a deals finder and a "filler items" tool that will help you find low-priced items to add to your Amazon order to get free shipping.Apnoti Apnoti watches Amazon for price drops. You can use it either by dropping in the Amazon product link and your e-mail address or installing a tool bar that adds the option to watch a price to Amazon.com. One of Apnoti's strengths is that it refreshes its price index "continuously" so you can be notified when a price drops usually within the hour. BeatThat! BeatThat is primarily a deals site that lets users add deals they've found in return for cash. However, each product on the site can be watched to see if it drops below whatever price threshold you set. Like PriceGrabber you must be a registered user of the site to make use of this feature. Buy it Later Buy it Later is a tool that's been designed specifically for Amazon.com. You install a small browser add-on, which will add a new button to Amazon product pages that lets you opt-in to buy it at a later date. Once you click this the tool will start tracking the price. It also gives you the heads up when an item comes back in stock, which can be useful if you're looking to buy something with a low supply. CamelCamelCamel While camel imagery does not bring price watching to mind, the site does a great job at it. You can search items on Amazon and a few other retailers. It's also got a great grid of products that have had the biggest price drops by day and week both in dollar amount and in percentage. One of the most important things the site does, however, is show you a price history from the past month both from Amazon and third-party retailers. This is a good way to see whether a price is trending up or down, although admittedly its charts can be thrown off by gray market listings.… Read more
We're not really sure what truths the "Truth About Roswell" watch conveys, but they appear to have something to do with the legendary discovery in that small New Mexico town of what some insisted were remnants of a UFO. Look closely, after all, and the watch face resembles a mini archaeology site with its cute little alien-ey skeletons and artifacts (gears? screws?) popping up from a cratered dirt-like surface.
Unlike many of the applications designed to monitor and limit kid's Internet activity, DM Net Time and Watch Administrator doesn't present a fancy interface. The tabbed layout is all business, but it gets the job done with a minimum of fuss.
As soon as DM Net Time and Watch Administrator launches, it scans for users on the network (or shared computer) and displays them in the first tab. Tick a check box to select the user(s) you want to restrict or monitor, and simply follow the tabs to apply the desired settings. Less experienced users will probably … Read more
It's so typical: just when we dropped eight grand on a Vertu, something even more exorbitantly ostentatious comes along.
Luxury watch brand Ulysse Nardin says it has partnered with a mysterious U.K.-registered firm, SCI Innovations, to create a mobile phone. Forget touch screens--the true cutting edge is 163-year-old watch technology.
The company tells us the phone will incorporate a watch-style kinetic system for charging the phone's battery. It's hard to believe that a little hand waving could generate enough juice to run a mobile phone, but the company says that it will only power a … Read more
Sure, you could buy a regular watch that displays the time in a regular way, but where's the fun in that? You're a nerd (you're reading Crave) and you want to be different. So you probably already know about Tokyoflash watches.
The latest is the $99.62 Hanko, and it's a design nerd's joy. The stainless steel watch is named after a form of Japanese stamp art it resembles and it's very simple object-wise, with nothing on the face save the black acrylic lenses. Behind these lenses is an array of LEDs that indicate … Read more
