  • If the N89 is the iPhone 4.0, how “revolutionary” will it be?

    The latest news on the iPhone 4.0 front is pretty sparse. Software wise we don't know a whole lot. Similarly, the hardware side of things is equally cloudy. Over the last month, we've heard rumblings of iPhone 4.0 being spied online via various analytics tracking software. With Apple's latest iPhone 3.1.3 update, we can now see at least say we know something about the new iPhone hardware. It's code name is "N89". How do we know? Well, we don't. But judging by past internal naming struc...
  • Bluetooth 3.0 packin’ Samsung S8500 get’s club member nod.

    With WiFi transforming more and more into the one stop shop for wireless transmissions/communications, Bluetooth it seemed was all but washed up. I mean, there isn't any reason to support two wireless standards when only one is needed. But those behind Bluetooth press on. The formal Bluetooth 3.0 spec was announced way back in April of 2009 -- so very long ago. It wasn't 2010 that we are finally seeing the first Bluetooth 3.0 phone get a nod from the Bluetooth Spec...

    Think that old, decrepit dying hard drive you tossed in some box never to look at again is still useless? Think again. With as cheap and plentiful as hard drives are becoming these days, trashing an old drive simply because it's too small is all too common. But those precious bits you've tossed aside have so much more potential. One possible idea is to slap it in an enclosure or hard drive dock to make an external hard drive out of it. But who needs another USB 2.0 external hard drive? (I...

    Getting the most of HD content on your computer means having a HD monitor -- hard concept to grasp, I know. However, with all of those extra pixels often comes a fairly high pricetag. Not to mention, powering all of those pixels, especially those demanding top performance from their computer hardware know that the whole shebang can be quite costly. For now, going multi-monitor means spending excess sums of cash on grossly overpriced cables just to connect a monitor(s) to your computer. Thei...
  • Google warming up: searching for help/developers for Android SDcard app storage

    Well stomp on frogs and shove a crow bar up my nose. SD app storage, a feature that has been requested across many platforms to alleviate space issues when meager amounts of device memory are concerned have been around for several years. WindowsMobile, a widely panned and criticized as "old" mobile OS has had this feature for years. So why does a modern OS such as Android miss out? Since Android has been levied against Apple and Microsoft as a legitimate contender, being limited to at most 2...

    Live life in the fast line do yuh? Feeling bogged down by the seemingly slow 7,200RPM the higher end/faster 2.5" drives spin at? Western Digital would like to show you something. Their new WD S25 is a 10k, 2.5" spinning mobile speedster that will bring even greater agility to those who are always on the go. Blow past previous benchmarks with a sustained read/write times of 128MB/s and a 16MB buffer. Further bolstering this speed demon attitude is the 3.0 GBPS and 6.0 GBPS connectivity optio...
  • Intel USB 3.0 chipsets not coming until 2011 :(

    Hope you like slow and steady, because we've got another year full of it. Mass adoption of USB 3.0 won't happen until 2011. If you're looking for somewhere or someone to point fingers and aim projectiles, look no further than "tech and strategy groups" whom are apparently unable to properly communicate goals and deadlines to Intel's product development teams. The two groups aren't quite "on the same playing field" if you know what I mean. It isn't all bad though. While mass adoption won't b...

    Sadly, not every computer you sit down at will be owned or maintained by someone as technologically savvy as you. I'm sure one of your worst nightmares is sitting down at some computer other than your own in need of a quick internet session only to find IE 6 starring back at you as the only browser choice. A quick Google Chrome download will work, but what if you don 't have install rights on the computer? No worries. Whip out your flash drive locked and loaded with Chrome 3.0 portable. ...
  • MMS activated on your iPhone yet? Force it…

    I've been seeing posts all weekend of people from across the country claiming that MMS has started working on their AT&T; iPhone's. I myself have restored several times hoping it would happen. But it didn't. No worries. Since I upgraded to 3.1, I lost all of my jailbroken goods. There is a saving grace however if you just can't wait (like me) for MMS to start working on your iPhone. It's quite simple actually. Apple iPhone School has an easy to follow and quick tutorial allowing anyone t...
