Hawk Troubles and Finding Cheap Deals

Well, back in September I went to the Digital Life show in NYC and saw a lot of cool things. One thing that I vowed to keep tracks on was the Novint Falcon, which promised more accessories as time went by and interoperability with different types of games, such as first person shooters. I wasn't sure if they would make good on that promise, since I often go to these shows and hear about "our upcoming plans for this product" and then they fall off the face of the planet, never to be heard from again. Well, not this time.
Also while I was at the show, I was literally buzzed by a remote controlled dragonfly. Well, now that this toy is avaailable to the real world (and yes -- I got one for Christmas and it rocks) it's having a little trouble with hawks.

OK, so now people are thinking that maybe the Foleo wasn't such a dumb idea... geez, who had this story first? Oh right-- it was me, just a couple of days ago.

Now that the Academy Awards are over, you'll either be ramping up your DVD watching to see some of those award-winning movies, or you're bored because you've already seen them. If you're one of the latter, you can watch old CBS shows online for free, or organize your music collection. Apparently I'm good at giving people suggestions on how to spend their free time.

I know I've talked about this before, but the information just keeps rolling in, and I'm sure it will until next February. Here's all your questions answered about the upcoming switch to digital TV.

From the FYI department, there's a new blog over at CNET, and it's worth checking everyday. It's called The Cheapskate, and I've already found great deals there, repeatedly. I check it every morning along with Woot.
