We never really knew anyone intrigued by Pogo's iPhone stylus, but the company's newest writin' stick puts that capacitive touch-compatible tech to a way more interesting use -- turning touchpads into large digitizer tablets. That'd be particularly useful for new MacBook owners who're rocking those...

We had this inkling that it was only a matter of time before a PoGo-infused camera came to market, and at long last, we finally know (well, sort of) how long we're talking. Sometime in 2009, the aforesaid company will be pushing out a digital camera that includes an on board printer based around the...

Hold up! Polaroid may not be dead just yet! A trusty reader was nice enough to give us some hands-on time with his new Polaroid Pogo Zink-based printer. The diminutive device is clearly meant to give us that old-school insta-print social feeling with its 2 x 3-inch photos, but results were less tha...

We'll be straight with you: it's pretty hard to imagine what all will go down at ICA London just weeks from now. Apparently a host of bebopping robots will be on hand to pogo up and down to the melodic sounds of the Punk Voice Choir. Additionally, each night of Neurotic will see a pair of punk band...

It's gone by a couple names since we first heard about it two CESs ago (Zink, Digital Instant Mobile Photo Printer, etc.) but the first Zink-based product is finally on its way to buyers as the Polaroid PoGo Instant Mobile Printer. It'll run you $150 for the unit (and $10 per pack of 30 sheets), an...

Electronic Arts has sewn up the rights to deliver games based on numerous Hasbro properties, though before you get too excited in hopes that you'll soon be revisiting your past and playing games based on G.I. Joe, we should note that of this "initial slate" of brands singled out by the companies no...

We kinda thought that the iPhone's interface was designed to be used and mastered without so much as a fleeting moment of longing for a pointing implement -- once you get past the keyboard's growing pains, anyway -- but we suppose the automatic mental association between touchscreens and styli can...

Revealed earlier this month, a title update to Xbox Live Arcade's rhythmic detonator Boom Boom Rocket is now available, bringing with it some bug fixes, added peripheral support and, most importantly, bigger and better 'splosions. In addition to supporting dance mats and fake guitars, we've found t...

We imagine mega publisher EA's recently announced reorganization strategy was as much in service of strengthening its brands as it was in keeping the peace between roving employees. "Excuse me, what do you think you're doing?" "I'm modeling a car for Need For Speed: Pro Street, what does it look...

OK, we get it, a lot of people don't like Rosie O'Donnell, we understand. Curiously her charity is hooking up with Pogo.com, which is owned by the lambasted Electronic Arts, another target of the ire police. Anyway, the two of them are getting together to launch "Pogo Cares Benefiting Rosie's For Al...
