  • Motorola Calgary bringing Android to Verizon.

    Moto fans who have weathered out the multi-year storm of disappointment after disappointment with each and every "new" phone falling short will now have something to lust after and hopefully eventually brag about.  The Motorola Calgary will obviously be toting Android within.  Moving forward, another sweet piece is the slide-out qwerty keyboard tucked away beneath that will surely please those who like more tangible keys to go along with their cupcake induced on screen keyboard.  From the...
  • USB flash drive + OLED display = way cool
    by Mike

    USB flash drives haven't really changed that much in recent time.  Sure the move from single to multi level memory brought on some big jumps in capacity, but the overall appearance has more or less stayed the same.  Welcome to the next era of flash storage with the OLED Flash Drive.  As the name hints, this flash drive packs an OLED display.  You may question the usefulness (or gimickeyness) of such a feature.  However, the makers, Ennova Direct Corporation (DBA ION Technologies), are m...

    While Twitter has been consuming every type of media outlet the last short while, MySpace has been relatively unnoticed.  Sure it was the social networking giant that started it all.  However, with Facebook and Twitter quickly adding users and growing, MySpace seemed if it had lost its momentum and innovation.  Really, the users that may not be using the desktop version all too often anymore are simply changing the way they access MySpace.  MySpace vice president, John Faith announced at...
  • Stand out from the static crowd with the LED light badge
    by Mike

    Name badges are what some would think, a "maxed out technology".  Meaning, its a freaking piece of paper/plastic and you can't really go much further with it.  However, that isn't the case.  When you tire of such antiquated technology, the LED badge should be your next logical choice.  This badge has *surprise* an LED that allows for scrolling messages that are user customizable.  What other features does this name badge from 2020 offer? LED badge will store (6) 256 character mess...
  • Windows 7 to be a little more choosey with auto-run/flash drives
    by Mike
    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 7:13 pm
    **The box bordered in red will no longer be an option on most flash drives after Window 7's latest security update** Microsoft announced today a move to make it harder for viruses such as Conficker to piggy back on Windows' auto-run feature when a flash drive is inserted.  Instead of the flash drive having access to auto-run features as soon as the drive is inserted, users will have to manually launch programs contained on the storage device.  However, Microsoft cautioned that DVD's and C...
  • New Firefox 3.5 beta 4 so close: 93/100 on Acid 3 test
    by Mike
    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 6:22 pm
    The browser wars are heating up with the release of Firefox 3.5 beta 4.  Speed wise, 3.5 feels at least a tad faster.  Whether it really is or not should probably be left to some spiffy benchmarking software.  But to my untrained eye, the speed improvements are pleasantly noticeable.  Sadly, the ultimate goal ahead of speed, Acid 3 compliance, doesn't quite earn a perfect score in 3.5 as  it comes ever so close, though ultimately falls short: 93/100.  While it is light years ahead of Mic...
  • Twitter to fade into oblivion because Oprah hasn’t updated her profile in 4 days?
    by Mike
    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 6:02 pm
    Twitter has no doubt gained some pretty hefty media attention since the Ashton Kutcher vs. CNN race.  (No need to link...the stories are everywhere, spend five seconds on'll find it).  Twitter has gone so mainstream that there was even a segment on Oprah where she tweeted her first tweets to the world.  Since that momentous day 11 long days ago, Oprah has tweeted a mere twenty times.  Is Oprahs possible boredom a potential issue Twitter should worry about?  In a nutshell: h...

  • Microsoft finally jumping head first into smartphone market with phone of their own?
    by Mike
    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 2:13 pm
    The iPhone has enjoyed complete dominance in the younger crowd because of its tight integration with a music download service (iTunes), a very successful App Store, and a UI and device functionality that many manufacturers still have some time before they catch up on. Since the dawn of the iPhone, Microsoft has been included in many rumors telling of an impending Microsoft/Zune phone. Time and time again, Microsoft has countered that they are a software business and leave the hardware desgin...

  • Apparently the English language has a copyright [Stupid]
    by Mike
    Posted April 28th, 2009 at 9:21 am
    Please Susan...those little kittens are so damn cute... The digital age has brought many new freedoms to the people of the world. Such freedoms as streaming audio/video, the ability to back up your CD's and DVD's for personal use, as well as the quick exchange of information from one corner of the planet to another just to name a few. However, copyright holders everywhere are running scared of this new found freedom fearing that it will somehow ruin their precious work. Music labels and ...
