Here’s a nostalgic look back at the items we’ve recently reviewed here at CrunchGear…

Review: WickedLasers Photonic Disruptor

“We’re a WickedLasers family. We enjoy shooting them at napkins to make them burn and zapping friends legs while they’re sitting at our picnic table.”

Review: TuneUp for iTunes

“If you’re like me, your entire music collection has been downloaded/ripped willy-nilly between hits of nitrous oxide and sips of Colt .45.”

Review: EA’s Need for Speed Undercover for the iPhone, iPod Touch

“For whatever reason, I can’t stop playing the iPhone version of EA’s Need for Speed Undercover, which is why it’s taken me this long to review it. I can’t say that I’ve ever been a big fan of the console series, but EA nailed it on the head with the handheld port.”

Review: QuikPod Pro camera extension arm

“The QuikPod is an easy-to-use extension arm that is designed to let you take your own photo in front of sites you’re seeing.”

Review: Motorola Stature i9

“The good news (at least for Nextel subscribers) is that they are starting to move away from this brick phone style design, and more towards a sleeker, sexier look.”

Review: Verizon MiFi 2200 – We love everything but the bill

“We’ve loved the MiFi mobile router since we first laid eyes on it back at CES. After a few days of playing with the Verizon MiFi 2200, we still love it just as much – but with one hangup: the nasty monthly bill.”

Review: Radius Atomic Bass Earphones

“Call me a snob for liking my $150+ Ultimate Ears, Shure and Etymotic earphones, but they sound fantastic and fit perfectly. Oh, uh, excuse me while I remove the egg off my face.”

Video Review: Movaic iZel Smartphone Stand

“It does everything we’d expect of a cell phone stand, and it does it well.”

Video Review: Funky Monkey Fruit Chips

“Mmmmm… tasty fruit chips! It’s a slow day and I got some fruit chips in the mail.”

Review: HP Pavilion dv2 ultrathin notebook

“Almost as small as a netbook, and almost as powerful as a regular laptop, they said it would be the best of both worlds. Of course, the risk was that it would have the worst of both worlds instead. That turns out not to be the case, and the dv2 is a smart little machine — but it’s still far from perfect.”

Review: Flip UltraHD camcorder

“Joining the ranks of the Flip family, the UltraHD is one of the easiest-to-use digital camcorders on the market. This version features 8GB of storage, high-definition video capture, the ability to use an included rechargeable battery pack or off-the-shelf AA batteries, and HDMI output.”

Review: Innergie mCube90 Universal Adapter

“A thoughtful universal power adapter that can charge your laptop and a USB-powered device simultaneously, the Innergie mCube90 features a tiny secondary DC adapter that detaches from the main adapter for use in cars and airplanes.”

Review: Nokia XPressMusic 5800

“I’m sorry that I doubted Nokia. The 5800 is one of the nicest little touchscreen phones I’ve used in a long while and, aside from a few quirks, it’s one of the better implementations of touchscreen on the Symbian platform I’ve seen in a while.”

Review: Ipevo Kaleido R7 digital frame

“I’d rather listen to nails on a chalkboard all day than review a digital picture frame. What’s the big deal with these things?”

Review: Kodak Zx1

“Tell yer ma and tell yer pa if they need a little, handheld video camera for taking high quality shots of the cousins messing around in the yard, then the miniature Kodak Zx1 is for them.”

Two Minute Review: Ford GT40 Series Car Mouse

“The Ford GT40 Series Car Mouse from is a $50 wireless mouse stuffed in a replica Ford GT.”

The Clickfree Traveler: The backup device that’s the size of a credit card

“This is probably the easiest review I’ve ever had to write.”

Video Review: SuperSmoker Blue

“The SuperSmoker is an atomizer that sends the taste and nicotine of a four cigarettes into your gullet without flame, smoke, or even any of the nasty chemicals usually found in cigs.”

Review: HP Firebird 803

“The Firebird is a sort of companion piece to the Blackbird: quieter, more compact, less powerful but still potent, and significantly less expensive.”

Video: Wherein Maestro Dobel Diamond Tequila is reviewed

“The Booze Fairy brought me some tequila the other day—tech, tequila, same difference right?”

Review: Maximo iM-590 headphones

“A great set of high-quality headphones at a reasonable price, Maximo’s $60 iM-590 “iMetal Isolation Earphones” strike a nice balance between features and affordability.”

Review: PPC locking HDMI cable

“An HDMI cable that snaps into place and cannot be pulled out without pressing the little lock. It works.”

Review: Moxi HD DVR

“Think of the Moxi HD as a hot, new Hollywood actress. She might have the look and desire to be the next big thing, but she just doesn’t have the goods to hang with the real starlets.”


“Having your song professionally mastered is a good thing and does it even better.”

Review: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX37

“It’s got a wide-angle Leica lens, image stabilization, 720p HD video recording, and a 4x zoom. That’s a pretty compelling list of features for such a small camera.”

Quick Review: Tiger Woods PGA Tour for iPhone

“For ten bucks, Tiger Woods PGA Tour on the iPhone/iPod touch is absolutely, hands-down, the best deal going when it comes to portable golf games.”

Review: Kodak Z980

“My initial conclusion? I’m going to say this just to get it over with: I miss my DSLR.”
