  • Microsoft making the whole ad deal a little more personal
    by Mike
    Posted October 31st, 2008 at 5:46 pm
    Not to be outdone by its (currently more successful) rival Apple, Microsoft is reportedly changing up their "I'm a PC" ads.  They are going to take the "battle" right to Apple in the physical sense.  This "battle" involves a few Microsoft guys setting up booths outside of Apple stores to record clips for their newest (and still terrible) "I'm a PC" ads.  You have to give them credit for being determined, but its merely a drop in the bucket.  Does Microsoft, and while I'm at it, all other com...
  • Survey says…”Verizon = FAIL”

    I am as you know it, a gadget freak.  I love electronics, technology, etc.   Cell phones are my latest addiction.  With that said, when I first found out about the Blackberry Storm, I (HATE Verizon) instantly considered switching to Verizon for the Storm.  After the first couple of days have hype, I began to logically think about why I had never used Verizon in the past...(Overpriced, lack luster phones, NEUTERED phones...etc.)  I thought to myself is the Storm really worth it.  I have si...
  • Pystar…”Lawsuit? What Lawsuit?”
    by Mike

    Being sued by a multi-million dollar company that could potentially put you out of business means that you should continue selling the products that got you in hot water in the first place.  Scratch that, take it one step further and release updated models of said product.  Pystar is apparently putting the lawsuit they're currently in with Apple in the backs of their minds as they have now announced updated desktops with OS X, the "Big Bag of Hurt" formerly known as Blue-Ray, and Nvidia 9800 g...
  • “Crackmem” for advanced Blackberry users
    by Mike
    Posted October 29th, 2008 at 1:47 pm
    Before switching over to my iPhone i was a HUGE crackberry fanatic...(and still am).  I knew and still know, just about every backdoor and customizing tip for Blackberries.  Editing things like removing certain programs like voice dialing or installing different carriers' themes just to name a couple.  Doing those involved cutting, copying, pasting, and deleting several or more files, was often a mini journey.  Finally someone has made the process easier for beginners and MUCH faster for...
  • Windows 7 Screenshots.
    by Mike

    Thanks to Ars Technica on posting some awesome photos of the Windows 7 alpha that is floating around.  Some points of interest are the task bar and start bar are vastly different.  No more text descriptions (thank god).  Icons replace the aging text method.  The oh so old side bar /sarcasm is being retired at the ripe old age of 2.  Instead of gadgets finding a home on the sidebar, they will now reside on the desktop.  You can view through windows to sneek a peek at your desktop for quick ...
  • The dirty side of the Android App Store
    by Mike
    Posted October 28th, 2008 at 1:12 am
    Until next year, all Android apps must be free through the Android App Store. I'm all for making money on your work, however sneaking through backdoors is just dumb. Word circulating on the Internet is that Android developers are merely posting links on the android store that links the buyer to the developers own page where the customer is required to pay. If I were in charge of the Android store I would remove the links ASAP. It's a simple rule. People are greedy, deceiving animals. +1 for...
  • Bold kinda sorta available
    by Mike

    If you've got about $700 burning a whole in your pocket and you don't mind going on a mini odyssey, RIM's delay ridden Bold is starting to peek it's head into the light of day. If you're lucky you can snag one from Best Buy sans contract. I don't see the point if you plan on getting it with a 2 year plan as you only have to wait another week or so. Oh well. Crackberry lovers will soon have their fix. Source: Boygenius...
  • Palm’s new OS breaking into 2006!
    by Mike
    Posted October 24th, 2008 at 11:00 am
    It's no surprise that Palm has been going through a hard time the last couple years.  A dwindling user base, lack of any new exciting phones, and a rather lackluster effort on their part has made the once King of the mobile world, a distant thought in only a few minds.  Boygenius has scored with some screenshots of what the new Palm OS is heading towards design wise.  Looking at them, its definitely a BIG improvement over their current ancient OS that was old and outdated 2-3 years ago.  Alo...
  • AT&T’s Network = Crap
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2008 at 7:55 pm
    Just as we thought...the REAL reason behind no iPhone tethering plan is that their are so many iPhone users already straining AT&T;'s network that they are a bit skeptical and afraid about what could happen to the network if they allow iPhone tethering now. It puzzles me how they rip of customers and still don't have enough money to upgrade their network. Really, instead of imposing caps on usage and higher rates, fix the issue...THE NETWORK! There is light at the end of the tunnel...or at le...
  • E3…Back from the dead!
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2008 at 2:19 pm
    E3...once known as the Pinnacle event in the gaming world, full of games, booth babes, and geeky gamers as far as the eye could see. Then last year, faced with rising costs and a few disgruntled attendees the show was scaled way back. Instead of tens of thousands visitors, booth babes galore, and a chance for average Joe to play the up and coming titles of the year, the show was moved to a much smaller venue (only a few thousand visitors), no booth babes, and it was invite only. Over the last...
  • Blackberry Bold finally launching on AT&T Nov. 4th!
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2008 at 3:01 pm
    The genius still known as boy has let loose some information from one of his own informants that the Blackberry Bold has finally made its way through Technical Acceptance at AT&T. Usually after passing TA you get to wait another couple of weeks to see the actual device, and that custom fast tracking for making up on the plethora of delays that Bold has dragged with it. Finally, Crackberry addicts can get their AT&T Bold...Horrah! source: Boygenius...
  • Sprint joins the masses…Prorated ETF’s
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2008 at 2:06 pm
    Sprint has received some pretty bad press over the last couple years.  Their policies were edging toward downright anti-consumer, the phone selection sucked, and the plans weren't any better.  Well, with the $99 unlimited plan, and some newer smartphones that have cropped up on their network, times are a changing for Sprint.  They have also just made public their decision to prorate their ETF's.  The longer you are into your contract and cancel, the less you'll pay, definitely a win for the ...
