You know, we were as surprised as anyone to see a totally out-of-context quote of ours used on a Monster Cable site (without permission, mind you) to sell the company's \"Beats by Dre\" headphones (you can see the screen cap after the break). It's ironic, really, given that we currently have a blackl

Wondering why Engadget still has a permanent ban on covering Monster Cable products, even after the company tried to make amends for its frivolous lawsuit and strong-arm settlement offer against Monster Mini Golf? Well, it's because the company hasn't actually changed its ways -- not only did we ju

Man, this is just sad. Over a year after the internet was set ablaze with rage after seeing Monster's HDMI cable scam, we've just been notified that the tactic is still being used in at least one Fry's Electronics store. For those unaware, the rig works as such: two TVs are set beside each other al

They'll cost just shy of four gazillion dollars per meter, but the world's thinnest \"smart\" active HDMI cables are still pretty enticing; unfortunately for us, RedMere chose Monster to deliver said cables to retail, but we're crossing our fingers that it partners with other brands that are less soi

Behold the power of bad press: Monster Cable last week decided to drop its ridiculous trademark lawsuit against Monster Mini Golf. According to founder Noel Lee, Monster Cable will drop any opposition to the \"Monster Mini Golf\" trademark, won't require any licensing fees, and it'll also step up and

Monster Cable -- the firm famous for grossly overcharging for its wares and suing nearly every company on Earth with \"monster\" in its title -- is going wireless. Yep, rather than gouging customers for Unicorn-like wiring, it'll now be promising to transmit signals through the purest air -- the kind

It's not like we haven't seen Monster Cables used in \"A-B\" demos before, but the latest in-store comparison is downright laughable. The image shown above was reportedly captured at a Fry's Electronics in Indiana, and as you can see, some clever bloke / dame figured they'd attempt to pull the wool o

Monster Cable's got a pretty shady history for a variety of reasons, but high up on the list is the company's notoriously aggressive legal team, which routinely threatens companies with litigation if they don't pay license fees or otherwise settle over trivial matters. Well, in an ironic turnabout,

Perennial whipping boy in the A/V market, Monster Cable, has launched its compact StreamLine (SL) 100 speakers. Seriously, we've never found Monster Cable products to be bad, it's just the marketing hype and pricing that gets under our skins. Anyways, if you absolutely have to have your cabling and

Monster first started talking this one up way back in August of last year, but the company just now seems to have gotten its act together, with it finally starting to ship its iPod Wireless Audio Bridge out the door. Now dubbed the iSoniCast, the device relies on \"proprietary 2.5GHz technology\" to

Here's a rather odd partnership: legendary rapper and producer Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Geffen A&M Records, have teamed up with cable, line conditioner, and accessory powerhouse Monster to market a pair of high-end, high-priced headphones. The so-called \"Beats by Dr. Dre

We'll be straight with you -- we aren't inclined to believe that this is even remotely close to factual, but considering the lengths big box retailers will go to in order to make sure you leave with a totally overpriced cable or two in your bag, we suppose it's not outside the realm of possibility.

You can't run around launching fancy new music players these days without a secondary offensive of cases and car chargers following close behind, and Microsoft's new Zunes have a veritable cavalry behind them. In addition to the official accessories we've already heard about from J Allard and crew,

To no one's surprise, Monster was out in force at this year's CEDIA, and it was probably packin' enough cabling to wire up the whole show by itself. 'Course, it also brought along its home control devices, wall mounts, power conditioners and the obligatory shag wagon, but notably, the Einstein Home
