Wi-Fi connectivity while you are flying used to be nothing but a pipe dream, but this dream has turned into reality for quite some time already. Delta Airlines is one of those companies who has made available their own Wi-Fi service whenever you take to the skies, and decided that something this essential to the modern businessperson should not be withheld, which is why the airline decided to expand their in-flight Wi-Fi service to include a number of additional regional aircraft.
This program will also include the Bombardier CRJ700 jets that are operated by Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Southeast Airlines. Delta is proud to maintain that they are the first carrier who delivers Wi-Fi services across its entire mainline and two-class regional fleet, which equals to over 800 chunks of flying Wi-Fi hotspots in the sky.
Delta hopes that this Wi-Fi rollout will be completed before the middle of next year shows up on our calendars. Bear in mind that these aren’t free though, where it will cost you $5 for shorter single flights, while 24-hour passes can be purchased for $13 and monthly passes for $35.
Wireless is the way to go these days, which is why you have Bluetooth headsets and keyboards that run on the 2.4GHz radio frequency when communicating with your computer. Well, wireless audio also comes in handy if you hate getting all your cables tangled up, and the PROFICIENT ZERO Wireless Music System might just fit the bill nicely, where it is capable of transmitting high-quality stereo sound up to 90 feet, helping reduce labor charges for speaker wire and cable runs through walls in the process.
If you are a geek at heart and grew up with video games from the 8-bit era, then surely the NES is something you cherish during your younger days. Granted, the super pixelated graphics are extremely outdated, but somehow, firing up an old classic or two once in a while still brings a smile to your face. Just like your first love whom you cannot forget, the NES with its special rectangle controller holds a special place in your heart.
Why not ‘celebrate’ its memory with the NES Controller USB Flash Drive? Yes sir, this unique peripheral will allow you to stash away your data in an extremely geeky manner, where a repurposed classic NES controller has found a new calling in its life. Talk about creative use of recycling an old piece of plastic!
You will be able to choose from a 4GB, 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities, where they will retail for $29.99, $39.99, $49.99 and $79.99, respectively. Any takers? Something tells me other enterprising folks might just take a Master System controller apart, or those from other consoles. What do you think?
The Business Software Alliance (BSA) has recently published a report saying that almost half the world’s PC users acquire software illegally and think that it’s okay to do so. It recently published on its blog: 47% of personal computers acquire software through illegal means most of the time, with folks in developing countries contributing to most of the piracy. The BSA conducted its research by surveying approximately 15,000 PC users in 32 countries ? which meant about 400-500 in-person or online interviews per country.
Sonic the Hedgehog has recently celebrated its 20th birthday, and in honor of the occasion, Sega has decided to release a special edition version of Sonic Generations ? the upcoming Sonic game that has Sonic going back in time to meet his younger, classic self, and running through stages inspired by all the previous Sonic games. The special collector’s edition will come with more than just the game though.

You may have heard about all the legal drama surrounding Apple and Android phone manufacturers like HTC or Samsung. With its rapid success, HTC has become a prime target for Apple, and it looked like Apple was having the upper hand, but HTC has “acquired” patents from Google and has started to use them to (counter) sue Apple, again.
The root of the problem is that the smartphone market is so hot that any edge over the competition matters. What was previously considered to be the “nuclear” option (patent lawsuit) has now become the secondary ammunition, the first type being the product themselves. To “defend” Android, Google has acquired Motorola for its large patent portfolio.
Good news for Sony Tablet S fans living in Germany ? it looks like you won’t have to pre-order the device to get your hands on it. Sony seems to have skipped the pre-order stage for the tablet over there and has gone straight to selling the device. Folks in the country can now purchase the 32GB Tablet S from the official Sony store for ?578.99 ($599) while we’ll have to wait until September 16th to get it stateside. However, those of you who want the smaller 16GB version or the 3G version ? you’ll need to wait a bit longer.
The Tablet S is Sony’s first attempt at creating an Android tablet, and from our initial impressions it seems like a pretty sweet device, though we’ll have to wait to get our hands on it for a full review before we can come to a conclusion. Check out the official Sony store for Germany.
We’ve covered a fair share of weird gadgets here on Ubergizmo, and here’s one of the more interesting ones we’ve seen recently ? a clock looks just like a slice of toasted bread. Hailing all the way from Japan, this interesting wall decoration makes for a great conversation starter in addition to being a functional time keeper. On the face of the clock we have numbers that look like they were created with jam, while the clock hands work and look like regular clock hands.
The toast clock comes in two sizes ? with two designs for the regular sized toast and one design for the “mega-sized” version. Suitable as a wall clock or a table clock, the toast clocks are available for purchase online now, though you’ll probably need to get someone in Japan to send it over to you. This is one toast you don’t want to spread butter on, despite how authentic looking it is. Find out more.
If you’re into dropping your iPad or tossing it around the room, you’re in luck because there’s a case just for that.
