  • T-Mobile getting the HTC Magic (Sapphire)
    by Mike
    Posted March 27th, 2009 at 5:24 am
    T-Mobile/Android users should feel a little better about themselves this morning as a picture of an HTC Magic (Sapphire) with a nice little T-Mobile logo centered right above the screen.  If you recall Google's little Gmail demo last month, they showcased an HTC Magic that happned to have a T-Mobile logo just like the one above, 7.2Mbps HSDPA, and a particularly obscure band in the 1700MHz spectrum meaning we can expect it for T-Mobile USA *fingers crossed*.  It isn't long folks before we ...
  • Facebook: “We need more money”

    When you consider going in debt, you know a car, a house, or private island are all worthwhile things to actually go in debt for as they can help you later on down the line.  Rarely if ever is it a good choice to go deeply in to debt for an electronic...such as a computer.  (I know, I'm preaching to the wrong crowd here).  For example, if you make $1k/month and are living on your own with all sorts of bills, buying a $15k Mac Pro is probably not at the top of your smarts list.  Well, tha...

    If you like to customize your Nokia N series phone but find flashy and overly "blingy" themes distasteful or distracting, you might want to take a look at the N-Gage theme by Dhanusaud at Daily Mobile.  It is a sleek system looking theme that blends right in with your Nokia handset ensuring you look different than everyone else without drawing too much attention to yourself.  As you can see, the theme comes with either red or blue styles.  Compatible devices include any S60v3 or S60v5 de...
  • Turn your iPhone into a true “all-in-one” device…Garage Door opener
    by Mike

    If you constantly forget your garage door opener or simply want to show off to your friends how you can now open doors with your precious, I highly suggest you stop by Rakesh Agrawal's blog.  He details how he made his iPhone even more useful in a surprising way.  Since the iPhone has already tackled music/video streaming, gaming, health programs, etc...the next logical step in everyone's mind (I'm sure) is garage door opener.  Never again will you feel that unsettling feeling in your s...

  • Zune functions coming to Windows Mobile 7?
    by Mike
    Posted March 26th, 2009 at 1:07 pm
    Microsoft's "not full steam ahead" project called the Zune will soon have many homes on multiple devices.  WM Power Userhas been tipped off regarding the next rendition of WinMo and the Zune.  Apparently some of the Zune's musical features are going to make their way into Windows Mobile 7.  How exciting.  Hey I can't knock it that bad since I had a first gen Zune.  The device itself was ugly as sin but it played music and had a decent enough interface.  Certainly with some "steam" and ...
  • iTunes “variable pricing” going live on April 7th
    by Mike
    Posted March 26th, 2009 at 9:51 am
    i Tunes has gone through some radical changes the last couple months.  The biggest and most important is the removal of DRM from soon to be all tracks and the quality getting a bump up to 256kbps from a lowly 128kbps.  In order to get the greedy labels to relinquish their grasp on DRM, Apple finally caved in to demands for tiered pricing.  What does that mean for you the consumer.  Only that the "popular" songs as deemed by some recording industry shmuck will now sell for $1.29 instead of...
  • Mobile TV service coming to Blackberry as early as next week?
    by Mike
    Posted March 26th, 2009 at 9:29 am
    Blackberries aren't exactly known for their eye candy nor consumer oriented features.  Since birth they have been corporate workhorses.  However, since the launch of the iPhone, many companies have been scrambling to add features such as multi-touch screens and *successful* app stores.  Argue with me if you want, the flood of touch screen phones and app stores after Apple's original speaks for itself.  *Stepping off my soap box* it appears RIM is trying to honor the claims of more ...
  • PhotoFast G-Monster PCIe SSD is blazing fast!
    by Mike
    Posted March 26th, 2009 at 6:44 am
    So SSD's don't have the longest lifespan...ok their lifespan is substancially shorter than a tranditional spinning hard drive.  But what they lack in life, they make up for in pure speed and durability (shock resistance).  If you have a PCIe slot just sitting unused and unloved on your computer, the PhotoFast G-Monster would love to call it home.  This beast will read/write data at the blazingly fast speeds of 750MB/s and 700MB/s  Said card will come in 256GB, 512G...
  • Grindr brings gay match making to the App Store
    by Mike
    Posted March 26th, 2009 at 6:24 am
    While I myself am not into the whole gay/bi-sexual scene, I'm sure many readers out there are.  With more social dating sites and social network sites making iPhone apps, mainly tuned for heterosexual relationships, the gay community may feel shunned or left out.  Grindr hopes to fix this.  Joel Simkhai, the man behind Grindr has released a location based application for iPhones that you can use to chat and maybe even eventually hook up with the lucky guy of your choice.  Finally the gay...
  • Fennec theme now available for Nokia S60v3 devices
    by Mike
    Posted March 25th, 2009 at 7:40 pm
    After two long and involving posts I'm taking a short break with some lighter reading.  Specifically to show you a Nokia theme that looks simply awesome: Fennec, designed and created by Ahmed at Daily Mobile.  Awesome because it just looks so polished and it were straight from Nokia themselves...though designed better.  If you have a compatible device (Symbian S60v3 Feature Pack 1 & 2...again the list for those who don't know: N79, N82, N85, N95, N96, E61, E63, E71, E75...
