Here's something we didn't expect: Microsoft is developing a projector-based infotainment system that you manipulate with your feet. Really. We found Microsoft's Project Ripple at the Augmented World Expo, but it seemed better suited to the local mall. The company admits it's similar, but told me...

In my daily work for TUAW I see a lot of iPhone cases. For the most part, it's hard to distinguish one from the other, so when Musubo offered to send me a set of their new iPhone 4/4S cases I took a quick look at them first. It's a good thing I did, because what I found was a set of fun and sty...

We'll hand it to 'em -- we've yet to see a RippleNote emerge from South Korea that we didn't think was at least marginally good looking, and the Ripple Tablet T8100 most certainly keeps the streak alive. Boasting a 12.1-inch 1,280 x 800 resolution touch panel, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, 120GB SATA hard drive...

Earlier this month, we caught wind of a unique new laptop from Korea's own Pixel Lab, and while it's easy to see how the lid design could be a love / hate affair, we've great news for those leaning towards the latter. Apparently, the firm is rolling out another in the RippleNote lineup, this time w...

An ifoAppleStore tipster has taken a few pictures (one seen at the right) of the 'rippling' that is happening on two of the panels of the glass staircase in the Grove (that's the Apple store in LA). This isn't structural damage, meaning that the staircase is still as safe as ever, it just doesn't lo...
