    Mobile web browsing has become one of the most talked about areas of the mobile market with mobile browsers on cell phones constantly being made more of a prominent feature.  On the mobile front, cellular providers are also hyping up their transitions in the near future to faster, more efficient 4G networks.  Usually when we talk of 4G networks we then follow up with comments about devices that we dream about to take advantage of said networks and how they would look.  But what if you hav...
  • RapidShare now handing over users information to record labels [Uh-oh]
    by Mike

    If you live in Germany and use RapidShare for anything but legal goods, you now have a new reason to look over your physical and digital shoulders.  It is now known that the german based RapidShare has started handing over users' personal information to record labels in Germany due to the free reign in interpreting paragraph 101 of Germany's copyright law.  What kind of personal information?  Well, remember that day early leak of Metallica's "Death Magnetic" album that was uploaded on to ...
  • Samsung i7500 in the plastic flesh
    by Mike

    If you were on the fence about whether the i7500 was in fact real or merely the child of rampant speculation, several blurry and smudge ridden pictures have popped up on Mobile-Review showing us that yes, in fact, the i7500 is a real device and really does rock Android.  Physical keyboard users will be saddened in the lack of a physical keyboard, however in the move to touchscreens, the physical keyboard is becoming less a necessity as touchscreen technology improves.  Still, the lack of p...
  • EU bends over to copyright/record labels…extends musical copyrights another 20 years
    by Mike

    The world is truly truly turning into a world run by the greedy few.  The sickness: The EU pressured by copyright holders and music labels to increase the current 50 year limit on copyrights has bent over and extended it by another 20 years for a grand total of 70 years.  The whole reasoning behind it is complete BS.  Those under the rule of the EU should consider themselves lucky however as the labels wanted to nearly double the term to 95 years.  However *slightly* cooler heads prevail...
  • Internet “Brown-outs” coming in 2010?

    Run for the hills.  Save yourselves.  Hoard water, batteries, and goldfish crackers(?).  According to a report by Nemertes Research, a "respected American think-tank", the internet and all it's greatness will come to a screeching halt starting as early as next year, 2010.  Apparently the popularity of anything at your finger tips coupled with various ISP's greed and reluctance to spend more money than they currently are to upgrade their networks will result in shortages of bandwidth.  ...
  • XBerry Theme brings the box to your Berry

    Several weeks ago, Elecite, a very popular Blackberry theme website that designs some simply stunning Blackberry themes, released a pretty stunning PSB theme modeled after the Playstation 3's UI.  While it was all fine and dandy in the eye candy department, some people simply don't like the PS3 and choose the Xbox 360 as their gaming console of choice.  Elecite recognizes this and has finally released the opposing sides theme so that it may grace Blackberries everywhere.  Dubbed "XBerry",...
  • The Motherboard Mirror reveals how geeky your really are
    by Mike

    If there was ever a time when you realized you were truly a geek, a nerd, or all out hysterical nut, upon purchasing this item, your entrance into that realm may have just begun.  The Motherboard Mirror is as the name states, a mirror designed and modeled after a motherboard.  What sets this unique mirror apart from other mirrors with designs and etchings on them, is that the etchings in the motherboard mirror are made on the glass slab itself, not the mirror surface, meaning you can't act...
  • Heidi Klum: “LG’s Ambassador of Style”.
    by Mike
    Posted April 27th, 2009 at 7:14 am
    If one thing could ever help cell phone accessory sales, it would be marketing said accessories behind a super model.  Yes, it is true that in the U.S., one of the best ways to sell something is having an extremely attractive woman behind it.  Something about that method causes men to practically throw their wallets at whatever company is selling the product.  The product in question today is custom designed backplates for the LG Rumor 2 designed by none other than Heidi Klum herself.  T...
  • Be the cool geeky kid with the Lego Flash Drive
    by Mike
    Posted April 27th, 2009 at 7:04 am
    Continuing on with their gadget revolution, Lego is kiddie-cizing another popular and well known electronic, the flash drive.  While the scores of office/electronic products Lego is marketing to the electronic crowd is a great nostalgic idea to bring any adult back to their childhood of endless hours playing with Legos, I don't think charging $54.95 for a paltry 2GB is the best way of going at it.  Some will be more enamored with the Lego styling that the capacity limitation isn't even a t...
  • Start the high speed party early…get your USB 3.0 cables now!
    by Mike
    Posted April 27th, 2009 at 6:54 am
    So USB 3.0 controllers and hardware won't be available for at least another year, that isn't going to stop the forward thinking techno freak that could be you!  Such trivial problems such as no software or secondary hardware to support a different piece of hardware is going to set back the true electronic guru.  No sir.  For those individuals, USB fever has your back.  They are  selling 2 meter long USB 3.0 cables for $9.99.  We all know that USB 3.0 is much faster than USB 2.0, ten t...
  • Nvidia GT3xx cards to be the end all be all of seperate CPU/GPU’s
    by Mike
    Posted April 26th, 2009 at 5:05 pm
    Processors and graphics cards have long been two completely different monsters that have each had their own respective duties, never switching sides.  As with all electronics, stand alone parts are often integrated into one as technology progresses and becomes smaller.  For years, many computer nerds have dreamed of the day when the CPU and GPU can become one, sharing roles, and making your scream machine all the faster, while also being smaller and more efficient.  Nvidia's GT3xx series ...
  • Copying CD’s = Fair Use — Copying DVD’s = illegal?
    by Mike
    Posted April 26th, 2009 at 11:50 am
    The "war against piracy" quest for record/movie label companies to pad their pockets is by far the biggest sham in the world today.  Case and point: the ongoing battle of copyright holders and RealDVD over the legality of the RealDVD software.  The copyright holders claim that RealDVD violates copyright laws because it circumvents DVD encryption to allow customers to make "unlawful" copies of their legally purchased content.  Explain to me how copying a legally purchased movie of yo...
