  • HTC Leo makes WinMo somewhat bearable.

    Posted September 16th, 2009 at 1:18 pm
    The HTC Leo, (pictured left) which for all intents and purposes a beast, is by far the phone I am most excited about in the near term, mostly because of that big, fat, 1GHz processor crammed underneath that 4.3" display. The Leo which we looked at just a day or two ago packs enough muscle to actually make Windows Mobile bearable. Now don't get me wrong, unless there is some wickedly nice skin on top of the shipping version of WinMo, I still couldn't call this my daily driver, though I would ...
  • BlackBerry OS 5.0 update

    Posted September 16th, 2009 at 7:07 am
    While I criticized RIM pretty hard, the addict in me still looks favorably on the old friend as I long for something new and exciting. 5.0 was supposed to be launched Aug/Sept according to several pieces of documentation that circulated over the summer. Obviously August is gone and September is quickly heading that way. So what now? We wait longer. According to RIM as they talked tireless at several BlackBerry symposium events, 5.0 for the enterprise and developer networks is already starti...
  • RIM missing the point: 3 upcoming devices for 2009. 16 more for 2010. Same tired OS. Is RIM going to become the next Palm?

    In what should be a joyous occasion for me is turning out to be bittersweet if not downright painful. Stumbling upon this post by BlackBerry cool highlights one very large problem -- RIM has completely lost site of where they should be going. First off, the three upcoming devices that are set to fall in the very near future, the Essex (basically a 9630 Tour with WiFi and a trackpad), 9100 (refreshed pearl type device), and 8530 (CDMA version of the 8520 already available) are nothing more th...
  • Nokia N900 coming to the masses early October.
    by Mike
    Posted September 15th, 2009 at 5:25 am
    As if I really needed to convince you that the N900 is a beast of device, a "release" date to distributors should perk you up and get you ready for action. If all goes according to plan, the N900 will hit distributors on September 27th with us mere mortals seeing the devices in our hands just as the calendar flips into October. When you think about it, it isn't that far away at all. This device has the potential to be pretty big for Nokia as it is their first Maemo powered device -- a new ...
  • BREW lives on!
    by Mike
    Posted September 11th, 2009 at 11:48 am
    When looking at mobile devices, stumbling over the word "BREW" is enough to make any gadget freak quickly skip ahead to the next device in hopes of salvation. What was a decent mobile platform several years ago has been completely banished from relevance (even from dumb phones) with the likes of the iPhone OS, Android, BlackBerry OS, and yes...even Windows Mobile. Even some manufacturer based OS's are becoming pretty snazzy. Yet BREW, this dinosaur in the 21st century continues to defy the ...
  • Microsoft “teaches” Best Buy employees a thing or two about Linux

    Lately I've been trying to tone down criticism on the OS front as I actually run 3 different OS's at home, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. I obviously have a favorite and some not so favorites. One OS in particular that is garnering more of my attention is that of Ubuntu 9.04. Right now I have it set up on a server at home giving me access to a few external hard drives. For me, using Ubuntu is a cinch, though for those less technically inclined who have grown up using Windows...
  • Android Market getting brighter facelift…emerging from the dark underground…
    by Mike
    Posted September 1st, 2009 at 12:54 pm
    Personally, I really like Android's darker UI and color scheme throughout. For a tired iPhone owner, it is a welcome change to the grey/silver/blue hues found throughout the iPhone OS. If you happen to feel slightly different and instead prefer a tad bit more european complexion to the Android Market, leaked photos showing upcoming changes to the Market highlight a shift in UI coloring. Before, the background was black and darker greys with orange highlights. In these latest leaked images,...
  • 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...

    Many Apple fans alike will be upgrading their systems to Apple's new operating system, OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard today. While it will be a joyous occasion for most, some may be disheartened to know that some of their software titles may cease to work after the 'ol switcheroo. Just which Titles don't work? Well, you could check out the support document on Apple's site, or you could just Look at the image below and see for yourself. Did your favorite application make the cut? Of course more ...
  • Motorola: “AT&T nixed our Android devices”.
    by Mike
    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 9:36 am
    Motorola was gearing up for a game changing holiday season fueled by new Android devices on all four major wireless carriers: AT&T;, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Sprint is rumored to be getting the HTC Hero any week now and T-Mobile already has two Android devices with a couple more on the way before years end. Verizon not to be left out is also set to have a pretty awesome Android handset that so far has gone by the name Shules. That leaves AT&T; the loner thus far as they don't currently se...
  • Snow Leopard’s new found virus sniffer further detailed

    Posted August 27th, 2009 at 8:05 am
    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...
