We'll review Canon's A590 Digital Camera and the MX850 all-in-one printer. Will we love 'em or hate 'em? You'll have to watch to find out.
Toshiba is coming back for round 2 and they hope to take Blu-Ray on once again.
This time, they are looking to undercut Sony's Blu-Ray format, by offering a player that will apparently reach the quality of Blu-Ray and HD-DVD discs.
One report also claims that this new player will be able to upscale regular DVDs to higher qualities than we've seen, but doesn't explain how this is possible. It would have to be pretty revolutionary technology to create true high-def video from a standard DVD.
The new format would supposedly play in standard DVD players, but look all nice and pretty in the new player. They hope to offer these new players for much less than Blu-Ray players, which they claim is the reason Blu-Ray hasn't been universally adopted.
Gizmodo managed to get the scoop on Dell's new mini laptop and it's looking pretty tiny. Dell is apparently setting this product up primarily for release in developing countries, much like the Asus Eee-PC.
There are no details yet on specs, cost, or operating system, but the Windows key on the keyboard leads us to believe it will run some version of Windows.
Google held an event to discuss open source development for their platforms with coders, but the real star of the show was Android, their mobile OS.
Android, which is expected to make big waves when it is finally released, will have to put up a fight against Apple's iPhone. The iPhone will most likely be in its second generation when Android hits shelves.
Some of the key features on display were a slick Google Maps application with Street View support, custom touch gestures, and a Webkit-enabled web browser.
Google better raise the profile of Android in the coming weeks as all signs point to a 3G iPhone announcement very soon.

Take a long look at the above series of photos. Go ahead. We'll wait. They essay a monkey controlling a robot arm with his thoughts. Let that sink in for a second: Scientists (presumably mad) are using technology to create monkeys that telepathically bond with robots. Hey, monkeys: We're really sorry about all the vivisection.
The monkeys' brains adopt the mechanical appendage as their own, refining its movement as it interacts with real objects in real time. So monkey hungry: Use robot arm to get food! Monkey angry, smash labratory! Burn City!
The technology will eventually be used to help people with spinal injuries navigate the world, provided of course, our telepathic robotic monkey overlords allow it.
Having brought you this news, we believe TheFeed's mission has been completed. All Hail Koko, our many-armed supreme ro-monkey commander!
Herald Triubune: Monkeys control a robot arm with thoughts
Future, the publisher of the official Xbox 360, PS, and Nintendo magazines has reported enjoying a recent double digit increase in circulation for those titles while slipping 1% in overall circulation.
There has been a recent shakedown and restructure at Future, who publishes many other titles including TheFeed favorite, Simply Knitting. They've contracted their business by shutting down 50 magazines and selling off international holdings.
Looking to scratch like a professional DJ? You could rely on personal skill and hard work. On the other hand, you could just go out and get the Hercules DJ Console RMX. It’s a hell of a lot easier than putting in hard work to become really good at something.
Did you like Uncharted: Drake's Fortune? Do you collect or have a strange obsession with Airsoft guns? For the first time ever, these two worlds will clash in an epic battle of collectability.
Check out this Airsoft Beretta M92F that looks like Drake's gun from Uncharted.
It even comes with a metal briefcase. It does not come with perfect hair. Oh, Drake. You're so dreamy.
We hope you know, this is the place to get your gadget fix. For a long time now you’ve been going other places desperately trying to stay on top of the latest technology. You need not waste your time any longer. It’s all right here, thrice weekly from now until the end of time.
Maybe our placement of Australia on the epic fail yesterday as a thing that turned out better than we expected was a bit hasty. In upside-down world, the Wii Fit has surpassed GTA IV in sales, giving the Rockstar superstar title one single week as the champ. Occupying the 2 and 3 slot are GTA IV on both consoles.
The rest of the top ten is below the jizzy.
Sega is building and releasing an arcade shooter of the original Rambo series that utilizes a light gun and features a 62-inch HD screen for the monitor. Real slick, eh? The in-game weapon changes depending on what is needed for the level, including some crossbow action.
The swerve is that the game is not about the new Rambo movie, but instead follows John Rambo through scenes and situations from the classic trilogy. The game is set to drop in Japanese arcades sometime this year and hopefully it will make its way to one of the 7 remaining arcades stateside.

Nintendo of America's Dervin Camden: “The fact is that we have put far more product on store shelves worldwide than our competitors. The difference is that in a very short time we have far outpaced their total sales. The Wii console has effectively expanded the video game market by re-defining what it means to be a gamer. Millions of people who never before picked up a controller or who had sworn off gaming years ago are trying the Wii and becoming fans. There is no benefit to Nintendo in not having enough product on the shelves to allow everyone who wants one to be able to buy one, which begs the question, ‘Why don’t you just make more?’ Please understand that the Wii console is a complex electronic device featuring one-of-a-kind components from different suppliers around the world. Many things factor into our being able to effectively increase assembly and shipment of a product without compromising quality control. We are doing all we can to get as much product as possible into stores.”
