    Even if your Christmas tree is a bit sparse and your holiday meal is a microwave dinner delight, you can rest assured that you won't lose any sleep over any of Apple's pricing this fine Black Friday. If a leaked poster is to be believed, Black Friday 2009 will be quite a winner for Apple with a rather rare showcasing of generosity by the Cupertino giant. The supposed discounts as they appear: Up to 15% off of all accessories, hardware, and software Up to 25% off of all Macs (Hello 27" Core i...

    Will the loopholes and political red tape consumers have to jump through to do something as simple as copying a music video, concert, or online radio playlist for later use is rather infuriating. I mean, all I want to do is listen to some music maybe even watch a movie. Say you want to download a YouTube video. Well, depending on the owner of the video, that may not be possible. But if you simply want to copy it to enjoy on your media player, computer, or other digital device, why shouldn't ...

    I'm a tinkerer by heart. I love to fine tune my gadgets and software until they break -- then I do it all over again. Nature of the beast I guess. Mac OS X has usually been a rather simple more simplistic OS in that without help from 3rd parties, it is generally pretty involved to make any system tweaks. It doesn't matter if you actually don't know how or don't have time, I'm sure if a solution existed to drastically reduce your time spent tweaking you'd be all for it. What about something ...

    Keeping your PC running, up to date, and performing optimally can at times be a challenging task. One that many seem to forget and shove to the back of their minds and bottom of their priority lists as the more mundane tasks of day to day life get in the way. It used to be that keeping your computer running smoothly took several programs and many hours slaving away making sure you dotted all your "i's" and crossed all of your "t's" -- figuratively speaking of course. Since those non-too frien...
  • HTC gives Hero/Android kernel away. Developers cry a tear of happiness.

    It seems HTC is looking to make good on Android's open roots. While certain manufacturers try everything in their power (and epic fail it everytime) to stop the public from tweaking the code as they see fit, HTC is taking a more friendly "let's be friends" approach. Such a partnership will make happy developers whom will intern make happy users. It's a nice fluffy bunny hugging circle. So far, the few manufacturers who have really tweaked Android such as HTC with Sense, Motorola with BLUR, a...
  • Microsoft “building” themselves into irrelevance?

    Many know my feelings about Windows Mobile. There's no need to rehash them. However, my overall feelings on Microsoft in the bigger picture are in fact much more positive. Along their desktop OS line, Windows 7 which is just a few days away from public release, is easily their best OS yet and what Vista should have been. But after you talk about the classic computer/os environment, what does Microsoft have to keep us there? What breakthrough, exciting, and even cool technologies do they hav...

One thing is for sure however, BB Desktop manager for Mac is much more polished and streamlined than the Windows counterpart. Head on over to
  • Android Developers get graced with Android 1.6

    While I generally stay away from any type of hardware coding, there are many things it has going for it. For one, programmers in general rake in some dough. Second, they often get cool stuff to play with for testing/debugging purposes before the general public. Case in point: Android developers can now download Android 1.6. Sweet action for sure. Any developers care to give any info, images, inside goods. You'll remain anonymous of course. Developers: download Android 1.6 IntoMobile ...

  • Latest iTunes 8.2 update breaks all things holy and right with the world [jailbreak = fail]

    If you like to live life illegally and by the seat of your pants, upgrading to iTunes 8.2 could bring your law breaking fun to a quick halt.  The USB protocols under the latest iTunes update have received a little TLC rendering all current methods of jailbreaking worthless and futile.  What is a renegade to do?  Don't upgrade...yet!  The Dev Team is promising that updates will come, however they won't release anything until iPhone OS 3.0 is final as why spin your wheels only to have your...
  • 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...

    Office junkies are no doubt looking forward to the next update, Microsoft Office 2010.  While it isn't bringing any new major updates to the table (that we know of yet), pictures always make people happy.  Above is a screenshot of the Office showing off a unique voicemail feature.  At first glance, the new interface actually looks pretty darn good looking.  Office 2010 looks as if it will be quite a worthwhile upgrade as far as design is goes.  Do you like the new look?  Or are you sti...
