    If you just so happened to be one of those CDMA toters in the BlackBerry world, always looking over your shoulder at your GSM frenemies with jealousy and haste as you watch them time and time again get the coolest berries first and even exclusively, you sometimes find yourself questioning your odd yet steadfast alliance to this less used wireless technology CDMA. While the top of the line BlackBerries always leave us speechless and ecstatic, the bottom end needs just as much lovin' too. Not...

    Posted July 28th, 2009 at 12:42 pm
    While the title may not tip off your interest in the slightest, BlackBerry App World 1.1 looks to be bringing a couple of highly requested features for RIM's mobile app store. First off, downloaded apps will now be able to be stored to memory cards...woo hoo!!! Second, an actual App World website that would allow desktop users to browser apps, read reviews, and other app store goodness all from the comfort and more roomy foot print that a desktop monitor offers. Per RIM: lexible storage ...

    For those of you who have a thing for Creative born players, today is your day to relish the limelight and all its glory. The Creative Zii EGG that strolled on through the FCC a few months prior has finally broken cover and revealed its face to the world. As far as the innards go, with more extraordinary specs such as front and back facing cameras, 1080p video output support, X-Fi audio, OpenGL ES, 32GB built in (expandable with full SD card slot) and more run 'o the mill features such as yo...
  • AT&T now charging a “discount fee”?
    by Mike
    Posted July 28th, 2009 at 6:28 am
    Now please correct me if I'm wrong, but this next little bit was unbeknownst to me until 5 minutes ago. AT&T; is yet again proving that they want to be the most dick headed carrier in the country. What's their latest quest into the land of consumer f****ing? Discount Fees. Ya that's right, if you sign up for a get to pay a nice $36 fee for "activating" the discount service. I'm sorry, I didn't realize taking 30 seconds to go through a splash page or two on your little AT&T; t...
  • Overpriced convenience: Kingston 256GB flash drive
    by Mike
    Posted July 28th, 2009 at 5:56 am
    Now I'm a big supporter of convenience and ease of use, however, there comes a time when even the most simple minded have to sit back and really question just how much all of that convenience is worth. Enter the world of 256GB Kingston flash drives. The latest from the King is sure to make the less technically knowledgeable individual gape in pure and utter astonishment by the sheer size and amount this miniature device can hold. While the size is massive, drives of this magnitude usually s...

    Posted July 27th, 2009 at 12:37 pm
    Add this to the top of your "gotta check out when I get home" download lists: SkyFire. But wait, I thought that was a closed beta and not even slated for public release anytime soon? Well, you be right. However a helpful/deceitful beta tester has let loose one of the most coveted programs to date so that all BlackBerry users may take any early bite of what is claimed to be one of the best 3rd party browsers to grace the Canadian born device. The original link has already stopped working. F...
  • Mother of the year gifts son with 98″ LCD in his ceiling
    by Mike
    Posted July 27th, 2009 at 11:49 am
    While I can sit here and point my finger complaining of this stories' mother being way too generous/intelligently lacking with her young son in regards to his new 98" ceiling mounted and flush TV (yes it's really that big), I can't even begin to tell you how much I would want that in my room at any age. If you're sitting back denying that this is of any use and that the mother is stupid blah blah blah, do us all a favor, shut your mouth and just admit your jealous. Hell, I am! Moving on, th...
  • Operation for the younger generation now includes puking puppy
    by Mike
    Posted July 27th, 2009 at 6:41 am
    Sometimes old ideas just a need a little bit of freshening up to make them new again. Much like a fresh coat of paint can make a rust bucket on wheels look moderately newer, a new design to an old classic game can bring in new interest, new sales, and a generation of happy players. Enter the world of operation. Some people love it. Some people hate it. A game of patience and iron nerves, Operation requires a steady hand as the slightest waver in your approach will cause (the classic) to b...

    Even though Apple designs some pretty cool UI elements and environments, their taste isn't always your taste. Thankfully end users have many options in changing up their desktop and UI elements to suit their needs and keep themselves in the happy camper group for most of their lives. For those of you who like pretty pictures and are anxiously awaiting the up and coming OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard release, a Snow Leopard beta tester has graciously uploaded the entire set of new Snow Leopard wallpa...

    Posted July 27th, 2009 at 5:17 am
    Those of you die hard tech fans who know of new products weeks to months before manufacturer service reps have known about the BlackBerry 8520 for some time now. While feature hounds will no doubt be intrigued by the optical touchpad though left wanting more with the 8520's rather low end appearance and feature set, the device will surely cushion RIM's growing lower end market. Hey, not everyone can afford to splurge on $3-$500 BlackBerries now can they? Following this push for the low end,...

    You may have noticed my absence the last week. No worries. Gadgetsteria is still alive and well.
