Sony bucks inexpensive soundbar trend with $1,299 HT-ST7

Sonyresized_large

Manufacturers like Vizio, LG, and Sonos are aiming for the average consumer with their respective home theater soundbars, and for good reason: the market is taking off. Sales of space-saving soundbars are rapidly outpacing traditional “home theater in a box” solutions. And now Sony is offering up its latest take on what a soundbar should be, but the company is taking a decidedly different, pricier path. Under the belief that consumers appreciate and will pay for top-notch audio quality — even in a soundbar form factor — Sony is today introducing the HT-ST7, a $ 1,299 unit that it says has been designed with equal focus on music playback and movie immersion.

Designed for optimal music and movie performance

For the former, Sony has…

Star Bucks: Canada Gets A New Space-Themed $5 Bill

canadian-space-currency.jpg

In financial news, Canada has just unveiled a new $ 5 bill that has an astronaut and what appears to be a space-based death ray on the front. The whole thing looks pretty fake to me. If I was working retail and somebody handed me that I would probably bang my head on the register and ask myself what the f*** am I doing back in retail, I swore to myself ten years was enough. Please just be a dream, please just be a dream, please just be a dream.

The new polymer $ 5 bill shows the Canadarm2 and Dextre manipulator robots, along with an ambiguous astronaut meant to symbolize all Canadians who have contributed to its space program.

Of course, as we geek-out over how cool this new bill is, a Canadian focus group complained that it’s cartoonish and out-of-step with modern Canada. Most did not recognize Dextre.

Wait — Canada conducts focus groups to see how the public will respond to how new money looks? That’s crazy. Then they ignore all the feedback? That’s more like it. Sorry folks, the new bills are all going to be penis shaped and have a sort of furry texture like a peach, but hey — if you don’t want to buy milk and bread with them, that’s up to you.

Thanks to lilco, who allegedly ordered one of those custom designed credit cards and got a butt printed on it. Let me see that! Wow, that’s uh, that’s definitely a dude’s — WAIT IS THIS MY ASS?

Uber losing its edge in taxi app wars as competitor Hailo reportedly raises big bucks

hailo cab

San Francisco startup Uber has had two advantages in the great battle of the taxi apps: money and notoriety. That may be about to change. Rival startup Hailo has raised $ 30 million from high profile investors, reports All Things D, which would bring its total funding up to $ 50 million, narrowly surpassing Uber’s reported $ 49.5 million.

The new money sets the stage for a high stakes showdown. Riders in Boston and Chicago, where both Uber and Hailo already operate, are likely to see huge discounts and heavy marketing (ice cream, anyone?). But the battle will be fiercest in New York City, where regulators just cleared the way for e-hailing apps to start booking rides in mid-February. Several apps are likely to hit the market at that time,…

AT&T Bucks The Chromatic Trend With An Exclusive Red Galaxy S III Coming This Summer

gals3red

Nearly every U.S. wireless carrier that will stock Samsung’s much-anticipated Galaxy S III laid out their intentions this morning, but some were more forthcoming than others. While Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular offered up expected launch windows and prices, AT&T spent the day keeping to themselves.

Well, until now that is. The news AT&T released is very similar to everyone else’s — pre-orders will begin on June 6, the 16GB model will cost $ 199 — except for one major difference. AT&T will be getting an exclusive red version of the Galaxy S III later this summer.

Sadly, no images of the red Galaxy S III have trickled out yet, so you’ll have to make do with this quick mock-up.

It’s admittedly sort of a minor thing to get worked up over, but when most of your morning was spent reading and writing about the same blue and white phones, a little splash of color helps lift the spirits. Meanwhile, the rest of the Galaxy S III’s guts will be the same as those seen in the other carrier variants — think the 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, and that handsome 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display.

Strangely enough, their release makes no mention of a 32GB model. Instead it makes reference to a peculiar promotion in which users can buy a 16GB microSD on the cheap, which makes me wonder if AT&T had to strike some strange deal in order to make their exclusive color a reality.

DXG 3D camera costs 70 bucks, or just three easy payments of $23.99


Oh, so your infant’s first words were “3D camera,” were they? Now you can reward your little princess with her first cam without needing to switch to store-brand baby food — after turning off the Home Shopping Network, of course. The DXG-018 3D camera will run you just under $ 70, but it’ll be worth every penny when your little early adopter grows up to be a gadget fiend with 15 maxed-out credit cards and $ 80,000 in debt. In the meantime, they’ll be teething on a 1.44-inch LCD, dual lenses, an SD card (sold separately), and a pair of AA batteries. The kit also includes three 3D viewers, which apparently display 4-by-6-inch prints in three dimensions. DXG says the cam was created with kids in mind, shipping in pink, lavender, orange, green, and yellow, but it may also make a decent gift for adults, assuming they’ve never used a camera or viewed 3D content before.

Vulkano Flow now available, does 480p placeshifting for under a hundred bucks

Monsoon has announced the “general availability” of a new placeshifting box, the Vulkano Flow. As we learned during CES, this box has a $ 99 price tag and trims last year’s Vulkano to just the placeshifting essentials. It’s most similar to the Slingbox Solo in that it will accept HD inputs but can only stream video at a max 720×480 resolution, which could be passable watching on a PC with a small screen or one of the mobile apps (iOS, Blackberry, Android, $ 12.99/ea.) There are a few hands-ons and reviews out already, with ZatzNotFunny noting a few tweaks were still necessary to get things running while The Gadgeteer has a bevy of screenshots for you to check out the UI. Monsoon’s other new box, the Blast, is still launching in “the near future,” which builds on the Flow’s specs (detailed after the break) with DVR recording capability and HDMI output for $ 199.

Kodak and Apple win early victories at International Trade Commission, big bucks hang in the balance

Looks like the US International Trade Commission’s had a busy week in tech, as Bloomberg reports the organization has ruled on two long-standing patent wars involving Apple, Nokia, RIM and Kodak. While neither is out of the woods quite yet, two companies have reason to be pleased: Apple and Kodak. ITC Judge E. James Gildea ruled that five Nokia patents don’t apply to Apple products, making a ban on iDevice importation unlikely in the United States, and the commission has also agreed to reconsider Kodak’s case against Apple and RIM (regarding camera image previews) with its full six members present. Since nobody likes having their products seized at customs, even such preliminary verdicts can lead to large cash sums being paid out, and Kodak thinks it’s found a whopper here — Bloomberg reports that Kodak received a total of $ 964 million in licensing fees from Samsung and LG, and the company thinks it can suck $ 1 billion out of its latest pair of defendants. We’ll let you know how it goes down.

LG Fathom launching soon, shows up in Best Buy for $100 bucks a pop

Oh, LG Fathom; like the HTC HD2, you’re one of Windows Mobile 6.5’s last hurrahs — a final spirited cry as the hawks circle over head. Packing a 1Ghz processor, a full touchscreen and slide-out QWERTY keyboard, it’s a solid piece of hardware prematurely plagued to obsolescence by a dying operating system. Ah well.

On the upside, you’ll be able to get this thing for (relatively) cheap. One of our sources just sent over a shot of an LG Fathom shelf tag freshly printed from Best Buy’s inventory system, price and all.
