  • PSP Go breaks out: says good-bye to UMD, Hello to your credit card

    Even though Sony loves to play the deny game, and have been doing so concerning any rumors that had to do with any PSP replacement, have finally got nowhere to hide.  Mere days before E3 is set to kick-off with Sony officially announcing the PSP-Go, pictures of Sony's next iteration of the PSP have been leaked giving everyone the ability to take a nice long stare at the Go.  Besides looking remarkably different than the PSP-3000 by way of a new slider/controller design, the Go features: ...
  • China Mobile not greedy /sarcasm - claiming 50%+ stake on app store sales

    Users on China Mobile's network have been for some time now waiting for an *official* release of Apple's uber phone heard 'round the world.  While the phone has been available for quite a while now unlocked and "illegally", according to Apple's stance on unlocking and jailbreaking, having a legit offering will no doubt entice the more reluctant buyers to purchase a "legal" option.  However, the big success and draw with the iPhone now centers around the tight integration with the App Store...
  • Blackberry BIS 2.7 feature list revealed….*Yawn*
    by Mike
    Posted May 31st, 2009 at 12:14 pm
    Blackberry BIS users hoping that 2.7 would pack a bunch by way of new features will be sorely and grossly disappointed as it seems this next update will be nothing but worthlessness.  While I am glad to be back in the Blackberry world now, it's a good thing I know what RIM is capable of and some of the great things that are planned further ahead in the future.  Because, if I was a first time user who was looking at the updated feature list for BIS 2.7, I'd jump ship to anywhere.  Enough w...
  • HandyWeather for Blackberry [Review]
    by Mike
    Posted May 31st, 2009 at 9:56 am
    Coming off of yesterday's review of BerryWeather, HandyWeather is following closely vying for your dollar and dedicated spot on your berry. As far as weather information is concerned, HandyWeather does a good job of laying out the information on the screen in a decent manner that is easy to read. Though, while the app isn't ugly by any means, I much prefer BerryWeather's visual appearance. HandyWeather is quick and simple to set up. However, settings hounds who love to control everything...
  • 3-app limit gone from Win 7 starter - Aero/custom themes/wallpapers still blocked
    by Mike
    Posted May 30th, 2009 at 9:50 am
    Netbook users who were worried of the upcoming 3-app limit on their netbooks that were more than capable of running more than 3 apps can rest assured that Windows 7 starter, the netbook edition, will in fact let multitaskers do what they do best.  However, the more creative and artistically minded will still have a huge problem in that the Windows Aero look will not be available in starter.  Meaning custom wallpapers, colors, themes, etc. will not be featured in 7 starter.  Again, the exp...
  • BerryWeather for Blackberry [Review]
    by Mike
    Posted May 30th, 2009 at 8:59 am
    Blackberry users who enjoy a "deeper-than-average" weather forecast on their addictive devices will find that BerryWeather, while not perfect, brings a lot to the table. Is it enough to part with $10 of your hard earned money? If you can live without a dedicated radar and a few inconsistencies between the in-app temperature/condition current forecast and the homescreen icon's display of temp/forecast, you're already winning half the battle. The second half deals more with how deep your lo...
  • Get social on your Berry with Pinwall
    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 5:01 pm
    **Update: All free licenses have been distributed. Social butterflies and Blackberry addicts can now get it on digital speaking with a new Blackberry centric social networking site/app that goes by the name of Pinwall.  It comes off to me as sort of a souped up Blackberry messenger/facebook online mash-up.  So far I've been messing around with it for an hour or so and I like what I see.  Though, it isn't yet quite perfect. (more...)...
  • Easy iPod Media Sharer makes swapping iTunes lists easier - hair pulling no longer needed
    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 1:38 pm
    iPods are notorious for keeping their media locked down which in turn often frustrates customers as they have to jump through all sorts of 3rd party hoops just to get a simple song from one iPod to another. Thankfully a much easier solution is available to you thanks to the Easy iPod Media Sharer. Able to whisk songs along at up to a claimed 600KB/s means song transfers happen in mere seconds, not minutes. Sadly, DRM authorization and lock downs still persist meaning only DRM free songs wil...
  • Alphabet soup maker venturing into world of cellphones - ITG xpPhone
    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 1:11 pm
    With XP quickly gaining in age as it's desktop successor, Windows 7 is now drawing ever closer meaning more adventurous uses of XP can be sought out. Mobile ventures perhaps? One of the perks of being an older tried and true operating system is that most of the quirks have been worked out and the OS optimized to its fullest. Moving forward with XP, what is the next stage now that Windows 7 will start to take over? Smartphones of course. Brought to you by the makers of alphabet soup (not ...
  • Europeans hate wires - love the open air.
    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 12:48 pm
    While we all can surely appreciate being truly mobile and freeing ourselves of the corded shackles keeping our devices enslaved to the wall, it appears that Europeans are the most appreciative. Berg Insight released a report stating that 11.6% of all data connections were high-speed mobile broadband based. That is, 11.6% of all internet traffic in Europe originated from devices not connected by a hard wire (not just mobile phones, but devices such as computers with USB mobile broadband dongl...
  • When 2, 4, or 6 USB ports just won’t do: 49-port USB hub
    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 12:31 pm
    While most computer users will never need more than 4 USB ports at a time, there some out there, peripheral fanatics that will have any and every USB device under the sun. Besides desktop missile launchers, coffee warmers, and wireless devices, before you know it you're already bouncing off the limits of your motherboard and attached USB hug(s). If you wanted to lets say 49 of those, you would be limited to around 28 or so devices (assuming the standard 4-port design on laptops coupled with ...

    by Mike
    Posted May 29th, 2009 at 11:45 am
    Usually, clothing with a gadget twist is pretty clever and brings forth a casual chuckle from deep within. This next particular combination does that and then some... The "iPanty" features a humerous "Slide to Unlock" image going you know where on you know what. At only $12 each, this non-electric gadget is sure to keep the slidee and slider busy and entertained for hours of slide to unlock fun. So how many are you going to buy? Take a second to step inside and see the Slide-to-Unlock und...
