  • Motorola Sholes in the flesh
    by Mike

    While I could go on and on with senseless ramblings and other useless banter, just taking a minute to stop and really take in what is above you right now is more important. We'll leave on a good note by saying that the upcoming Android love on Verizon has a very nice home on the Sholes. *Picks up drool cup* BGR...

    Want to make a call or send a text but can't because your normal AT&T; phone keeps dropping calls? *Soon* you'll be able to look no further than the Genus. A love child created between new found partners TeraStar and AT&T; are aimed at bringing expanded coverage to remote areas via satellite. The handset will allow users to "seamlessly" switch between satellite and cellular networks without hiccup. While the Genus is being marketed towards more government and utility companies, AT&T; and TeraSt...
  • Make your own Google Street View camera system cheap!

    If you've seen any one of the many pictures floating around the interwebs that shows Google's "chase vehicle" with the infamous Street View camera system mounted above and ever imagined owning your own, you were usually quickly shot down by your own mind as Google would never lend/sell you one. So, being the geek that Roy D. Ragsdale is decided to take matters into his own hands and build his very own Google Street view device. And knock the ball out of the park he did. For only $300, Roy c...
  • The pinnacle of novelty mouse pads: The Hamburger Hut USB Mouse Pad
    by Mike

    If you're going to give a novelty gift, you might as well go over the top. Go geeky. Even though more sophisticated and advanced mice are making mouse pads obsolete, that doesn't mean people will leave the classic piece of computer tech behind. Either because they have some sic fetish with mouse pads, or they are technologically incompetent and stand by the belief that a mouse pad is needed with any mouse is beside the point, the Hamburger Hut USB Mouse Pad is the mouse pad to get. Featuring...
  • Sprint does one for the little guy. Drops Touch Pro2 down to $199 [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted September 30th, 2009 at 8:06 am
    Even though I'm not very well versed (read: not at all) in the Windows Mobile world, the Touch Pro2 is a striking handset with good looking hardware and some pretty decent specs to boot. The sky high price tag a couple retailers such as Sprint and T-Mobile were charging was a huge sticking point however. Sure the TP2 is a good phone, but is it $349 good? Many and I would venture to say most would claim "No". Noticing the math error, Sprint has gone ahead and restored some sense of civility t...
  • iPhone users love their phone, HATE the network. *Shocker*
    by Mike

    I've complained about AT&T;'s performance enough for several people. And apparently my feelings of ill will and malice aren't alone as a recent study conducted by CFI Group which polled over 1,000 AT&T; iPhone users on their device and network. The first test point centered around the users perception of owning their ideal phone. No surprise here. The iPhone scored a 92% rate here -- top of the class. Trailing further behind, Android and Pre users rang in at 77%, BlackBerry (73%), Treo (70%...
  • And so it begins again…Windows “officially supported” logo program
    by Mike
    Posted September 30th, 2009 at 6:30 am
    While the "Vista Capable" logo and moniker were nothing short of a joke and outright crime towards humanity, the announcement today featuring details of a revised and lengthened testing program for Win7 testing mean the resulting hardware should actually be...well...capable of running said software. To date, 6,000+ hardware hopefuls have made the cut meaning just about any desktop or laptop you choose will be good to go when the time comes to make the 7 switch. With one of the Win7 labels even...

  • Verizon CTO claims: “Metered Broadband is the way of the future”
    by Mike
    Posted September 29th, 2009 at 12:51 pm
    According to Verizon's CTO, "Metered Broadband is the way of the future". Apparently someone forget to tell him how the future is supposed to work. Look at the title and give yourself a minute to think. Who does this benefit? Obviously the company doing the metering and billing. While on one side, metering is a legitimate answer to raise more revenue for businesses as heavier users pay more, the thought of metering usage and having tiers still doesn't sit well with me. It makes sense...
  • Nearly perfect CNN iPhone app falls short…
    by Mike
    Posted September 29th, 2009 at 11:37 am
    As is common these days, exclusive deals, greed, and some form of "content protection" is ruining yet another service. This time it is the CNN iPhone app. While I won't argue that to date, it is the best stand alone news app available in the Apple App Store, the fact that we still can't get a live stream of a reputable news station is a pain in the ass. The hurdle? It isn't Apple. Heck, it isn't even AT&T; in this example. It is cable providers. They make money off of selling certain chann...
  • Measuring Tape Watch attempts to put size on time itself…
    by Mike
    Posted September 29th, 2009 at 11:21 am
    While we have covered several different types of watches and clocks, with a few of those being rather simple to read, are a far cry from this latest freak show. The Measuring Tape Watch will force your eyes to do a full gymnastic routine just to get the current time. Hey, I'm not complaining as I'm up for a challenge at any time and this watch is cool as all get out. In case you were wondering, the big vertical line that is most prominent displays minutes with hours and seconds trailing und...
