Ematic Announces Virtual-Assistant Technology ‘EDAN’

Earlier today we received word from Max Borges Agency that one of their clients – Ematic – would be introducing a virtual assistant technology into their tablets. A few hours later we received the press release giving us the low down on what to expect from the leader in value tablets. “Ask a question and she’ll answer it,’ boasts Ematic. Starting this April, every tablet shipped from Ematic will come stock with EDAN (Ematic Digital Assistant and…

RIM Takes A Page From Sony’s Handbook, To Begin Removing Features In The Name Of Security.

RIM Takes A Page From Sony’s Handbook, To Begin Removing Features In The Name Of Security.

RIM appears to be taking a page out of Sony’s update/upgrade handbook — moving forward, updates to the BlackBerry PlayBook ecosystem will remove the app sideloading feature currently allowed by RIM. The move, according to Developer Relations VP Alec Saunders, is in reaction to concerned developers who cite the Android Market’s (Google Play) “rampant piracy problem” and lack of revenue because of said problem. By Sanders’ account, roughly…

4G PlayBook Images Leak.

Well well well, a 4G PlayBook. While the screenshots don’t 100% confirm which 4G is used (“real” LTE 4G or faux HSPA+ 4G), it’s nice to see a SIM card equipped BlackBerry working its way closer to public release.

WiFi And Now 4G LTE Issues? Is Your New iPad Acting A Bit Flaky?

Over the last week/week and a half we’ve seen various reports of new iPad owners complaining that WiFi reception was less than stellar. It’s bad enough that Apple has instructed their retail stores to simply replace them when a customer comes in with an affected model. And now new reports are cropping up saying the 4G LTE on cellular models is also causing grief. A thread in the Apple Support Forums details an issue with the new iPad where the device fails to…

iOS 5.1 Untethered Jailbreak (A4 And A5) Shown Off On Video?

Regretting hitting that “Download & Update” button for iOS 5.1? Yeah. You’re not alone. Me too. While the regained stability is nice, I desperately miss some of those handy tweaks like TwitkaFly and BiteSMS. Currently, A4 (and previous) devices can jailbreak iOS 5.1 — tethered only. A5 devices (iPad 2 and iPhone 4S) are stuck with no working jailbreak, tethered or untethered. But that will change very soon. iOS hackers @bassamkassem1 and…

World’s First Mass Produced Bendable E-Ink Display Built By LG, Coming In April.

Fans of sci-fi and futuristic movies do doubt have a soft spot in the hearts for the high-tech display technology seen in their favorite sci-fi movies and shows. Wouldn’t it be great to have some of those same awesome gadgets in real life? This April, LG is pushing us one step closer to “the future” with their new plastic-based e-ink display. The display eschews the traditional glass substrate of displays of this nature and instead uses glass, making it…
