The TV you want, but can’t afford

(via Engadget)


Well, the 65-inch and 80+ inch plasma TVs we’ve seen announced recently just weren’t big enough for some people. Panasonic has announced that it will have its new 103 inch Plasma TV (that’s 8.5 feet diagonal) available for purchase before the end of the year. No pricing, but I’m sure it can’t be much more than a modest car…

Nexus Wicked laser review

(via TechEBlog)

I’ve written about Wicked lasers before.  These are some very high powered lasers that you can get to have around the house.  By high powered, I mean something able to cut through a garbage bag or electrical tape.  So if you’re trying to decide whether a $1000 blue laser is worth your money, read the review at OhGizmo.
