Best Mobile PS3 Mod (sort of) Ever

We tell ya — Ben Heck’s apprentices are the best. One techknott has just finished up his latest creation, a WVI (wireless visual interface) for Sony’s PlayStation 3 console. The purpose? To transmit signals to and from the PS3 by way of this handy handheld. A 1.2GHz wireless transmitter is used to get the controller commands to the PS3, and the same is used in reverse to get the video signals from the console to the homegrown device. The device itself utilizes a 5-inch LCD, 4,500mAh Li-ion battery (complete with a LED capacity meter), an AV input, headphone jack, USB port and a button for every last DualShock command. Hop on past the break for a video, and head to the source if you’re interested in making an offer for it. Yeah, we said it — dude’s going to be selling this!

Unibody MacBook dips to $728 educational pricing

While it’s unfortunately not a permanent price drop, or even a sale that’s available to everyone, that is the price that at least some students and educators can now snag the entry-level MacBook for. It’s not clear how long that price will last though, as the regular educational pricing for the laptop is now apparently $899.
