…New gadgets are just a hack away?

Depression

Has the damaged economy managed to crush your new gadget budget?

Instead of sitting around and complaining, why not make your old things new again with a few “creative” hacks?

To help you along the path to recycled gadget goodness, Gizmodo has put together a guide to Zero-Cost Gadget Upgrades, including turning your Xbox, PC or Apple TV into a genuine media center, hacking your iPod with Rockbox, converting your PC into a Mac, flashing your crappy router’s firmware with DD-WRT to turn it into a top-of-the-line piece of hardware, downloading new maps for your old GPS, jailbreaking your iPhone for Wi-Fi Internet tethering, and modding your Wii to create a free emulation machine.

Who said the next great depression had to be so depressing?

…It’s Things Thursday: PAPPA*PHONE?

PAPPA*PHONE

Hulger’s PAPPA*PHONE brings a touch of class to the VoIP telephone.

Cut from a single solid piece of American walnut (so that the grain of the wood flows from the handset to the base), each PAPPA*PHONE is handmade by Furni, and also incorporates a piece of solid hand-polished brass into the design, as well as laser etched details.

Since it works with all VoIP services (Skype, iChat, GoogleTalk, Vonage, Yahoo, etc.) and is plug-and-play compatible with both the Mac and PC, it’s as easy to use as it is beautiful.

Maybe this VoIP thing has a chance after all…

…Antec’s Skeleton is from the future?

Antec Skeleton

Antec’s Skeleton is a fantastically futuristic looking PC case that claims to be the world’s first open air case.

    With a unique design that allows for unprecedented airflow, a front 92mm fan, and a top three-speed 250mm fan with multicolor LED customization, the Skeleton goes utterly unmatched in stylish cooling. Factor in the layered component trays for top-notch convenience, as well as the rackmount quality side rails, and you have a case truly without equal.

Though it definitely won’t blend in under your desk, this frag factory isn’t designed to, and if you’re the type of person that builds and customizes your machine so that you can get props and respect at the local LAN parties, then this might be just what you were looking for to dominate the competition.

…Mac and PC think outside the box?

In addition to Apple’s product roll-out, they also took the wraps off a new ‘out of the box’ banner ad featuring Mac and PC:

I’m actually a huge fan of advertising like this, and I hope that more companies follow Apple’s lead and start to expand their thinking into new and unique areas so that users will actually want to watch their ads, rather than them just forcing ads down our throats at every stray click.
