  • Sony’s Rachel UI flaunts her goods for the video camera!
    by Mike
    Posted October 31st, 2009 at 9:17 pm
    Ya, this is one of those times where I just need to keep words to a minimum and let the video do it's thing. In case you can't see the movie, in short: these leaked conceptual demos of Sony's "Rachel" UI are stunning and give Android's pathetic stock media capabilities a kick in the digital groin. So much so I would even compare these as good or better than the iPhone. I love the iPhone's media capabilities and perhaps it could just be that I'm tired of seeing the same thing attempted on so...
  • The xpPhone UI detailed in pictures

    The xpPhone was almost a joke back when we first heard about it many ago. The thought of running not only a full blown desktop OS on a phone, but a 5+ year old desktop OS had many second guessing and discounting this phone long before any real pictures could be seen. Not to mention, such an odd and unique device rarely comes stateside. Well, take comfort in knowing that the "seeing" part can now be partially fullfilled. Now, don't forget. This seemingly vaporware-esqe device had some pretty...
  • Does HTC “needs to take care of WinMo”?

    Those hoping to see HTC do as Motorola and pass up WinMo 6.5 and instead climb into bed with Android while the world waits for WinMo 7 will be sorely disappointed. According to a recent interview conducted by, HTC's CEO Peter Chou stated that while the market and their customers in particular are eager for more Android handsets, the company [HTC] has to "take care of WinMo". It's kind of disheartening really. No one should take care of WinMo except Microsoft. If they can't get...
  • Is Android too inefficient?

    In the wake of Android 2.0's grand public unveiling, everyone is talking up how this is the Android we've been waiting for. With a truck load of new and exciting features, Android 2.0 is the most competent competitor to the iPhone and iPhone OS yet. So why does it need to get better? I'll lay it all out right from the start: Since the iPhone 2G and iPhone 3G are powered by a 400MHz processor, why is it that they run circles around not all, but most Android phones, phones with processors rough...
  • HTC saying “No thank you” to Android 1.6. Hello hotness to 2.0?
    by Mike
    Posted October 28th, 2009 at 1:31 pm
    HTC's current lack or recognition for Android 1.6 (Donut) has left many HTC users feeling hurt and unloved. Even though Cupcake/1.6 doesn't bring anything that earth shattering, Android people love their updates. Almost as much as CrackBerry users. So it is understandable that a lack of 1.6 love could cause some problems. Take comfort in knowing that it is for the greater good.... An email between a slightly disgruntled HTC Hero user and an HTC European CSR: Dear HTC customer, Thank...

    That Google Chrome OS just got finished gushing about? Ya it's fake. Sucks I know. Damn scammers. I've already and gone ahead and updated the original post. This is just so it gets to the top of people's feed lists. Again, it's a fake. Resist temptation and do not download. You've been warned. Daring Fireball {Image source}...
  • Google Chrome OS (beta) now available! [Update: FAKE!]
    by Mike
    Posted October 28th, 2009 at 10:25 am
    **Update Damn, seems like that was a short lived sucker punch, as a matter of fact, no such surprise existed. This isn't an official release. John Gruber was able to look past the instant wave of geekery that claimed me as a victim and noticed a couple glaring issues with the most apparent being a bunch of installed software on an OS supposed to be based on the cloud. Some clever scammer is responsible for the link now appropriately struck through below which leads to the fake download pag...
  • Microsofot Store PC’s free from crapware.
    by Mike
    Posted October 28th, 2009 at 9:24 am
    Purchasing your computer at any retail location or online is hardly the same PC once you actually get a working model back to your house. When booting up your new PC for the first time, you go through normal set up with accounts and such. But one thing that has been a pain for years is the pile of crapware that comes pre-installed on your PC. Anything and everything you can think of has at some point taken the role of crapware. Such junk is called crapware because the only thing it excels at...
  • Official BlackBerry Storm OS mutilates custom themes! [Update -- Fix!]
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 2:57 pm
    **Update: There's a fix folks. Find it here. Disappointment for sure. It looks as if a nasty bug in the official BlackBerry 5.0 software renders custom BlackBerry Storm themes ugly and not quite so functional. The image above is from Kyle over at BlackBerry Cool and foreshadows a tidal wave of disappointment for all new BlackBerry Storm users who pick up a model with 5.0 pre-installed as well as those who have already upgraded. In this particular issue, the phone in question is the ...

  • CyanogenMOD back with 4.2.1 stable release
    by Mike
    Posted October 27th, 2009 at 10:38 am
    Looking back but a mere month ago, hearing the word "CyanogenMOD" meant sadness and sorrow as it was at that time Google sent Mr "Mod a cease-and-desist order because of his Android tinkering. Thankfully a common ground was reached and Cyanogen could continue on pleasing many Android tinkers across the world. To mark the anniversary, a new stable release of CyanogenMOD, ver. 4.2.1 has been released. Different from other versions however, this one will lack all of the Google branded/Google Exp...
