  • Don’t like the JooJoo? What about the JooJoo OS X edition?

    Regardless of what a few specific individuals (read: Fusion Garage exec's) say, the JooJoo by Fusion Garage is pretty much a bomb -- in stock form that is. What if you could order one with a different OS -- one with a bit more functionality, say OS X? Them you'd have something, right? Well, I'm not too sure what exactly would make the JooJoo hardware "lust worthy", but slappin' OS X on it and giving it another go couldn't help, that's for sure. The image above depicts such a tale of two ...
  • Now a reason for living: JooJoo hacked to run Windows 7

    The JooJoo has faired a bit better overseas than here in the states. It just hasn't seemed to catch on here. Then again, when facing a $400+ debit going towards your finances, which would you rather have -- honestly? In the U.S. it's unanimously been the iPad. But maybe a little hackery fun can change your views, hmm? In the JooJoo forums, some talented folks have managed to put together the necessary code to get Windows 7 up and running over the JooJoo's stock UI. Windows 7 isn't as finge...
  • No break for JooJoo, Adobe didn’t touch FusionGarage tablet with any sized stick…

    The JooJoo claims it's better than or at least equal to the Apple iPad because of it's support for Adobe Flash. Generally, this is a pretty big bragging point to make note of. However, in the JooJoo's case, the reliance on a lonely Atom processor and beta build of Flash (designed for desktop PC's mind you) means the overall experience is lacking. Adobe apparently isn't too thrilled in being so closely associated as a "JooJoo partner" and as such, has released an official statement on the matt...

    I won't deny one bit that 24 hours ago, my outlook on the JooJoo by Fusion Garage was this -- crap. From the meager hardware specs to god awful UI, it had failure written all over it. On top of it all, an untimely delay meant the whole plan of beating the iPad to market was lost. A delay is never a good thing. But Fusion Garage went back to the drawing board and at least made the best of what they had, turning this seemingly downtime filled delay into a workshop of sorts and bringing the UI ...
  • With launch delayed, does the JooJoo stand a chance against the iPad, other tablets?

    The JooJoo, CrunchPad, wonder tablet -- call it what you want. Since the much publicized falling out between TechCrunch's Mike Arrington and Fusion Garage's Chandra Rathakrishnan, the JooJoo's future has been rehashed many a time. On one hand, you have this small company putting out their own in-house creation against countless other tablets as well as the big gun Apple iPad. After seeing countless reviews full of videos and pictures, I have come away pretty unimpressed. For $500 -- the same...
  • JooJoo “creator” FusionGarage announces manufacturing partner, shipping to start soon. Adds that the iPad is a spawn of the JooJoo (yeah…right)

    Were you on team TechCrunch/Michael Arrington or team FusionGarage in the whole CrunchPad JooJoo drama? It doesn't really matter how you feel as the JooJoo is coming to market. Fresh of the press, FusionGarage went live today with word of a manufacturing deal with CSL. The good thing for FG is that all up front manufacturing costs are paid for by CSL in exchange for a "single digit percentage of sales". Well alrighty then. I'm just going to come out and say it -- after watching the demo m...
  • JooJoo pre-orders increasing, new funding coming in, launching this month?
    by Mike
    Posted February 1st, 2010 at 1:50 pm
    Color me slightly optimistic, but reports around the JooJoo today (remember, the CrunchPad that evaporated into vaporware only to re-emerge as crapware) have it not only on track, but enjoying increased pre-orders since the iPad announcement, a new round of funding, and a South African carrier deal in the mix -- quite the buffet of luck if you ask me. As far as the increased pre-order claim, Fusion Garage CEO Chandra Rathakrishnan didn't actually post any numbers for us to look at so his cl...

    Fusion Garage and TechCrunch have been going at it for the last several days in a cut throat manner, both accusing the other of lies, deceit, and all kinds of other hurtful things. We all know what Michael Arrington and the entire 'Crunch team think. Fusion Garage announced today that any IP property or copyright claimed by TechCrunch and Michael Arrington is "ludicrous" and simply not true. Fusion Garage CEO even goes as far as to say that Michael Arrington didn't do enough -- practically an...
