  • Intel + Adobe + Your Living Room = “Seamless Viewing Experience”!
    by Mike
    Posted January 5th, 2009 at 11:07 am
    I love this time of year.  Christmas is great and all but the real stuff happens in January.  CES and Macworld (well at least CES will still be here next year) are two big consumer electronics shows that always have me hitting the refresh button on my browser every 10 seconds just waiting for the next "break through" product to be announced.  Two companies who are getting a leg up on the competition and already starting to announce the big plans for the year are Adobe and Intel.  These ...

    [caption id="attachment_834" align="aligncenter" width="448" caption="*Image by Matt Brady > Gizmodo > and finally The Nokia Blog*"][/caption] File this under wishful thinking and rumor x2.  An interesting thought from the Nokia blog written by Mark Guim brings up a very perplexing question: "What if Apple announced an iPhone at Macworld, complete with 5+ MP camera, slide out keyboard and a release of early-mid 2009?  Would it be the death of the Nokia N97?  Mark thinks so.  I don't t...
  • Zune Phone: Hardware or Software?

    No this isn't news about an impending release date for a zune phone.  Heck, its not even a "rumor", but merely a brain storming idea.  Love it or hate it, Windows Mobile has been a very versatile mobile OS that as been installed on many devices from different manufactures.  Just because it has been widely used, does not mean it is necessarily the best, just that they were in the right place at the right time and of course the company can take some credit as well.  You look at Windows M...

    Macworld '09 will be a Macworld full of change.  It is now widely known that Steve Jobs is not giving the keynote.  Apple announced that this will be their last Macworld appearance.  And try to just pick a couple of what seems like a million rumors for new product announcements. If you have been living in a cave and are unaware of the rumors floating around, here is a small, quick recap: (more...)...
  • Android coming to a netbook near you…in 2010?
    by Mike

    Are you an Android user?  Do you love the versatility Android offers or the look of the next gen operating system?  Would you use that same OS if it crept onto bigger devices?  The last question will be easier to determine come 2010.  Venture Beat, through one of their sibling sites, Mobile-Facts, was able to compile Android to run on an Asus EeeePC 1000H netbook in just around 4 hours!

  • Garmin Nuvi Phone shows its face…kinda.
    by Mike
    Posted December 31st, 2008 at 6:29 pm
    For some time now, Garmin has remained pretty quiet on their iPhone competitor the Nuvi Phone.  Obviously being a GPS manufacturer, the phone is going to be heavily based around GPS.  Other features besides GPS will be your standard smart phone features such as email, web browsing, multimedia, etc.  Electronista has acquired pretty decent set of screenshots of the UI.  Electronista makes note of certain iPhonesque features in the UI.  While I see certain placements of icons being simi...
  • Apple iTablet/iPod HD/*insert dreamy device here*?
    by Mike
    Posted December 31st, 2008 at 9:48 am
    Right up there with the unknown things in life such as the real killer of JFK or if the moon landing is real or not, is when if ever will Apple release the much rumored iTablet? Apple lately has not been able to stay out of the lime light on the rumor front. First, iPhone nano rumors started cropping up. Then "El Jobso's" health was called into question for what seems like the 100th time, and now the iTablet is back in front of the rumor line. What is the iTablet? Basically its a device...
  • Because a laptop with dual-core is sooo 2008…
    by Mike
    Posted December 30th, 2008 at 9:19 pm
    So, you thought having a dual-core was cutting edge...Not anymore. Dual-core is old news and last year in the mobile world. The new hotness is quad-core processors. The time has come for them to finally trickle into the laptop arena. Acer was so excited, they couldn't wait to release a laptop featuring Intel's latest and greatest. The Aspire 8930G-7665 can claim to be the first laptop to market to use Intel's new Q9000 mobile quad core processor. While being first to market with the new c...
  • iPhone nano coming in ‘09?
    by Mike
    Posted December 30th, 2008 at 12:25 am
      *IMAGE IS NOT ACTUAL IPHONE NANO!!!* Rumors of an iPhone nano started cropping up a couple of months ago, only to die down a few weeks later.  However in the last couple weeks the rumor mills have flared up again driving the iPhone nano madness to the brink of almost credibility.  Now, even more "credible" sources such as Vaja, an established Apple accessory maker, are linking to information about upcoming products, more importantly iPhone nano sized products.  While I like to st...
  • Samsung Pixon becomes: Samsung T929 for T-Mobile
    by Mike
    Posted December 16th, 2008 at 3:05 pm
    The Samsung Pixon which I just talked about yesterday as being released for AT&T enjoyed a short lived exclusivity.  According to Boygenius, the FCC just passed through the T929.  "How do we all know its for T-Mobile" you ask.  The minor change in HSDPA radios from AT&T's standards to an AWS 1700Mhz hammers the nail in the coffin.  T-Mobile is the only carrier using that band in the US so its pretty easy to determine.  No other information is available yet, but as soon as I know...

    by Mike
    Posted September 20th, 2008 at 8:31 pm
    Uh oh....if you have been electorcuted yet by your "Ultra Compact" USB power adapter, STOP using it!!.  Seems these little things have been discovered to have a nasty little defect.  The power prongs can snap off in the wall outlet potentially giving your heart a not to welcome jumpstart.  Most of the defective adapters came with the iPhone 3G. Follow the link to apples recall page to see if you're affected.
  • Is the “Peek” really worth it?
    by Mike
    Posted September 10th, 2008 at 9:40 pm
    [caption id="attachment_64" align="aligncenter" width="199" caption="Peter Svensson, AP Technology Writer"][/caption]   The "Peek" is a self proclaimed "back to basics" email device.  It lacks features such as a calendar, address book, browser, and basically...everything.  All it does is email, like good 'ol blackberries used to do.  The makers of the Peek shun the "feature bloat" that many smartphones have today.  They take the approach of "less is more" the extreme less side. ...
