  • Is “PC World” a new Macworld competitor?
    by Mike
    Posted August 28th, 2009 at 7:50 am
    Now I know PC World is not turning anytime soon. They started as a PC oriented magazine many years ago and to this day still are for the most part. Though a website with "PC" in the title and one that has had such a high focus on PC's and Windows related content declaring OS X 10.6 as the "brainiest, brawniest, and most beautiful consumer-oriented OS available anywhere" brings a chuckle to my lips. Even though Windows 7 isn't publicly available in final form yet, anyone that's a geek, espec...

    Snow Leopard's official release is almost here. While bigger tech sites and other important figures got to take Leopard for an early test drive, more normal and lesser people like mwah are anxiously waiting for tomorrow. One feature of Snow Leopard that has so far gone under the radar is that of virus protection. Several people have found pop ups warning them of potential virus in email attacments or web downloads. How exactly does it work and is it really that effective? According to...
  • OS 5.0 leaked for Bold, Tour, and 8900

    While Bold users may still be recouping from the excitement the latest AT&T; update brought them, the more daredevilish users may be over and done with that already as they've likely had that firmware version for weeks now. While AT&T; is still messing around with oh so old 4.6 Bold firmware, the real action is in the 5.0 scene. Some brave developer or insider with special access to pre-release BlackBerry OS builds was kind enough to open the door and let loose versions of the 5.0 software for...
  • Moto making mad dash for the top spot with new OS dubbed “Blur”?

    After languishing in self pity and endless device after device of mediocrity, it seems Motorola has finally got some pep back in their step. BG's infamous inner sanctum of ninjas have revealed some pretty juicy secrets. First off, Android will be doing as HTC did with Android and giving it quite a face lift in order to make it more unique and easier to navigate. Further still, this "skin" will be heavily connected to the internet with various parts of the OS able to be independently upgrade...
  • Apple pointing iPhone OS instability finger at jailbreaking
    by Mike
    Posted July 31st, 2009 at 8:30 am
    Apple's stance on jailbreaking is nothing new. They hate it. They want it written into law as illegal (stupid). Many people who have a love for the devices potential are often left wanting more when Apple goes on and does truly stupid banning GV apps. Because of the constant tug and pull of power that seems to go on between AT&T;, Apple, and the iPhone end user, many users take matters into their own hands by jailbreaking their devices. It truly is one of the best things you...
  • Microsoft’s plan to sell me WinMo phones…Change Windows Mobile to Windows Phone

    Remember when you were a kid, the only kid with a funny last name (who am I kidding...the over weight kid that no one ever picked for their team) and everyone made fun of you. Then you were fortunate enough to move to a new town with a new school and new kids. You lied about your name (and your weight) and started to live out a somewhat normal life. You even become pretty popular since your new friends don't know of your troubled past. This generalized story mold fits many things and insta...
  • Final pre-release build of Windows 7 (Build 7600) leaked?
    by Mike
    Posted July 13th, 2009 at 6:13 am
    All of you geeks who scrutinize firmware/OS version numbers as if you were some CSI detective on the world's most high profile will have something new to lust after. Leaked images of a Windows 7 7600 build (string number: 7600.16384.090710-1945) have started circulating the digital landscape. As you can see from the string number, the build wasn't pushed out that long ago -- it's merely a few days old. The real kicker is that the letters RTM are tagging along for the ride. Such a bond usua...

    Google has grown into quite the "all arounder" in the tech world the last few years.

Holy hell. Did I just say Google is making thei...

    In many computer users' lives, the time will come when your computer isn't acting quite as happy and peppy as it once did. The computer golden years aren't as fond as the human variant not only in the demands required of aging technology, but also in the fact that "old" comes about relatively quickly in the tech world. With Apple's latest addition of an SD card reader on the MacBook Pro line, new possibilities are now available such as actually reading SD cards without having to use some stu...
  • Samsung Omnia: the new *hacked* home of Android

    When consumers are faced with limited choices, taking matters into their own hands is often their response. In regards to Android, while the line up for the second half of the year looks promising, that doesn't do anyone much good right now who have a few handsets to choose from with hardware that is ok at best. Enter hackersville. The Samsung Omnia is pretty sweet phone albeit one big problem -- it runs Windows Mobile. Thankfully there world isn't going though a shortage of determined, sk...
