As Wired reports, the Myka is userfriendly because it takes the nerd out of the BitTorrent process.Â The Myka is intelligent enough to provide content (legal or otherwise) from a Peer2Peer network without all the advanced skills often required to pull off a BitTorrent download.Â The Linux based box is a simple connection to the TV via HDMI, composite (ouch), S-Video or SPDIF and connects to the internet via eithernet or WiFi.Â The Myka comes with a variety of internal hard drive configurations (80, 160 or 500GB) and includes an external USB port for additional storage or future connectivity / peripheral options.
“Thereâ€™s no way the content providers will allow this pirate box on the market, right? Wrong.

The iPhone Telescope clicks into a crystal case which then snaps onto the iPhone itself. The idea would be keeping the clear case attached to the phone and whenever you’re ready to take some pics, you whip out the lens and attached it. I personally, would pack a decent point-n-shoot camera if I’m lugging around a zoom lens anyway – but hey, that’s just me.
After dropping a couple hundred on your iPhone, if you are slightly curious than another $18.99 is a no-brainer to see what the iPhone Telescope lens can do. iPhone Telescope product page from USB Fever. Continue Reading
