The good people at Casio were clearly targeting gamers as they showed off their Green Slim Projector recently. They even went so far as to describe it as “The Ultimate Gaming Experience”. The Green Slim Projector boasts that it uses no mercury lamp, so the user doesn’t have to replace its light source any time soon. In place of the traditional projector lamp is the power of lasers, which last ten times longer than a Casio mercury lamp. It is also quite slim, at 1.7 inches thick. Projected images are so sweet, it almost appears you are looking at an HDTV on the wall instead of a projection.
If you are a gamer and like to use projectors, you will certainly appreciate all that Casio has to offer with this model. This one has 2X Optical Zoom, and is able to do PC Presentations by plugging in a thumb drive. It is available with XGA (1024 x 768) and WXGA (1280 x 800) native resolution, and it is capable of displaying HD inputs including 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. It is also equipped with an HDMI terminal in order to transmit digital audio and video with only one cable and connect directly to game systems with an HDMI output. The Green Slim line from Casio are available at B&H and Best Buy, for a price of about $799-$1,099.

In this day and age, many companies are spurning out the most technologically advanced products to woo new customers through the door. And today, anything that has an innovative technological twist to it is definitely sure to snag the attention of many holiday shoppers, or at least get them to stop and have a peek. And when it comes to the holidays, gift cards today are as much a staple as a Christmas tree it seems and just about everyone takes advantage of these handy gifts that are easy to shop for, and practical for both the giver and the recipient. But when it comes to gift cards, many people are a little hesitant to make the leap because they seem kind of like a cop-out, a cheap gift that doesn’t really show a lot of thought or effort. So Best Buy is getting over that hump by putting a technological twist to this season’s gift giving. Many people shop at Best Buy and so a Best Buy gift card will certainly be useful to just about any gift recipient.
Best Buy is helping all of us who bought HD-DVD Players from them before febuary 23rd,2008. Everyone who bought one will get a $50 gift card and get to keep your HD-DVD player to use your current movies etc. They will give one of the $50 gift cards to those of us who bought the HD-DVD attachment for the x-box 360 also!
The great thing is some of us won’t have to do anything to get the card… Best Buy will proactively mail cards to all customers that the company can identify as having purchased an HD-DVD player. Members of the Best Buy Reward Zone program, customers who purchased Performance Service Plans (PSPs) or who made their purchase on BestBuy.com should look for their gift cards in the mail by May 1.

From the site:
"Are you tired of being interrupted by the telephone while watching TV? now you can enjoy the convenience of caller ID on your television set! This call identifier allows you to avoid nuisance interruptions, while making you aware of important calls.
Simply connect this 4.5"L x 3.5"W x 1.25"D caller ID unit to your television and relax (will work with any Television that has yellow and white RCA jacks). If the phone rings while you are watching your favorite movie or show, the caller’s name and number is displayed in the upper left hand corner of your TV screen — you can make an immediate decision on how to handle the call.
It also keeps track of your calls while you’re away. The caller’s name, number, date, time, and the number of times they called — up to 14 callers plus 99 repeat calls — are stored in the caller’s log for future reference. Ideal for number retrieval!
And the "plus" version also includes caller ID for call waiting, a remote control, and a message waiting indicator that works with your voice messaging service. Now you have the power to run to the phone on your terms! Both systems:
- Handle calls instantly
- End unwanted interruptions
- Send the right person to the phone”

The year was 1996, I was complaining about wires on my walkman. 1999, I was complaining about the wires to my headphones on my computer. 2000, there are wireless headphone, but they are either cheap crap or expensive and you cant take them with you outside of your house. 2006 we have inexpensive and well-designed wireless headphone for you home AND for on the go.
There are quite a few portable wireless headphones on the market. Thus far Logitech has beat everyone to the punch on making them AFFORDABLE. Well at least in the States, the Japanese have had portable wireless audio technology for YEARS. For that matter Japan and some parts of Europe are just plain ahead of us by light-years. I digress!
These Logitech Headphones are SWEET; I am in love (for now, my love IS fleeting when it come to tech). Coming in at around the $200.00 or $140.00 price range, (yeah just wait a year or three, they’ll be in the BESTBUY discount bin!) they are worth the price if you value freedom of motion and freedom from wires.
Logitech’s Wireless Headphones for MP3 will work with any MP3 player or other device with a standard headphone jack, there are no track-control buttons only volume controls. Bluetooth powered these headphones have a range of approximately 32 feet and use rechargeable batteries which claim up to eight hours of play per charge. Included is a wireless adapter that snaps onto your music player. Want your own pare?
