    John McCain: since you have no idea what the internet is nor how to work it, sit down and take note. The image below is how cable/quasi-internet packages will look if you and your we're-in-the-pockets-of-big-business friends F' up net neutrality and the internet as a whole, tiered pricing and all -- you know, since tiered pricing is everyone's favorite and "benefits" the economy. Is this a worst case, end of the world scenario? End of the world - no. Worst case - Yes. If net neutrality f...
  • Netflix soon coming to a PS3 near you!

    Starting in November, US PS3 owners will be able to take advantage of all the streaming goodness Netflix has to offer. Sony's closest competitor, Microsoft with the Xbox 360, has had Netflix support for almost a year now. The Xbox 360 wasn't the only piece of hardware to support Netflix however as many other TV box services and hardware currently feature varying amounts of Netflix support. Because of that, this PS3 adoption is important for continual growth for Sony's gaming love child. The ...
  • Reminder: U2 live streaming their concert tonight on YouTube

    Music preference is a highly subjective topic. People have varying tastes music for a variety of reasons. U2 has stood the test of time in the music scene. While not everyone's favorite band, U2 has shown that they have what it takes to span the generations. To a digital nerd like me, I enjoy their music, though that's not why I'm writing this. Tonight at 8:30pm PST (11:30pm EST) U2 will stream their entire concert, live from the Rose Bowl. Streaming live performances are nothing new mind ...
  • T-Mobile confirms Project Dark pricing!
    by Mike
    Posted October 25th, 2009 at 9:59 am
    T-mobile's Project Dark has been quite the talk of the town these past few weeks especially after the prices leaked earlier last week. Those leaked prices were in fact legit as T-Mobile has gone ahead and acknowledged the Project Dark pricing and details on their website. The only thing that hasn't been announced or revealed yet *fingers still crossed* is that of a rapid 3G expansion or 'ol flip of the switch on their 21Mbps HSPA+ network that they've been caught bragging about once or twice....

    Feeling generous and have the deep pockets to support such an attitude? If so, a giant LEGO Mario may be in order for you. The LEGO Mario above stands 5' 9" and consists of over 40,000 LEGO pieces. Originally created by renowned LEGO sculptor Dirk VH for the Ronald McDonald House charity foundation, Mario the giant has since moved on to eBay in search of a new home. As of October 24th at 9:20 pm (EST), good 'ol Mario is sitting right at 2,500 Euros ($3,755 USD). Ya, being a nerd and/or co...

    Torrent search engines are a dime a dozen in todays modern world. So much so it is often hard to find new startups as a few larger players dominate the industry. You may be asking yourself what exactly can be done to build upon the current structure that torrent search engines are built upon? As far as actually finding the material you seek, you're going to get similar results just about anywhere you go. However, the journey to such content is another matter. Personally, I haven't spent tha...
  • John McCain pushes anti-net neutrality “Internet Freedom Act”. In other news: John McCain knows what a computer and the internet are.
    by Mike
    Posted October 23rd, 2009 at 8:14 am
    Net Neutrality supporters and opponents are quickly engaging in a fight that regardless of the outcome will have far reaching effects for many years to come. While consumers and tech based companies generally favor some form of net neutrality ruling, most governmnet reps corporate lobbiests are pushing just as hard opposing any type of net neutrality. With all the technical details becoming increasingly complex, I was quite surprised to see failed president John McCain making his voice heard o...
  • Comcast HighSpeed2Go [Update]
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 7:04 pm
    Comcast's "HighSpeed2Go" service we mentioned earlier certainly grabbed my attention with the amount of data your could get for an unheard of price. I spent around 20 minutes on the phone tonight with a Comcast rep, (higher up Comcast rep mind you) and didn't really come out with anymore than we already know. What kept confusing me was the fact that the rep could only see a $50 and $100 option on his screen. Granted, the service isn't actually available until next month (in my area anyway) so...
  • Access Else LiMo prototype phone shows off fan-like UI
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 1:58 pm
    In the age of glitz and glam from the likes of iPhones and Android devices, LiMo, Androids cousin gets left out of the lime light. LiMo, which is a string of Linux, has so far suffered from slower adoption than it's once equally small cousin Android. Perhaps the Access Emblaze Else shown above can get that ball rolling hmm? The fan-like interface pictured isn't quite my style as it's a bit dark and bland. But you can't please everyone. What's your take? Does it need more work or are you di...
  • Google Chrome 3.0 portable edition ready and waiting…

    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 12:08 pm
    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. ...
  • Comcast unveils “HighSpeed2Go” wireless service
    by Mike
    Posted October 22nd, 2009 at 8:42 am
    Ok, I've knocked Comcast in the past, but their new baby, "HighSpeed2Go" will certainly have me canceling my AT&T; home DSL -- like today. The gist of their new offering is 4G wireless services now available to residents of Bellingham, WA, Portland, OR, and Atlanta, GA with many more to come of course. But it doesn't stop there. 3G wireless services are also included which for now have a much wider footprint than 4G. Don't stop yet, it keeps going. HighSpeed2Go is tied into a normal, home ca...

    Spend any time surfing the mobile web? If you do so using a BlackBerry of any type, I'm sure you know the utter catastrophe that unfurls before your eyes each and every time you try to navigate to the web page of your choice. 3rd party solutions such as Opera mini and Bolt have until now given us worthwhile solutions that make browsing an outright joy. Still, in the age of the mobile internet, having your own slam dunk browser is key. Look no further than Mobile Safari on the iPhone and the ...
