We’ve most certainly seen our fair share of odd alarm clocks at GadgetReview, but none quite like the Dreams Money-Saving Ban Clock.  Once the alarm goes off it won’t shut up until you jam a coin, of any currency, into it.  It holds about $25 worth of coinage, but how...

- - 0 Comments

According to some reports, Nintendo is working on their next gen console, the Wii HD. It’s rumored to have, you guessed it, HD capability and an upgraded processor.
