  • Quick Review: Kogeto Dot Panoramic iPhone 4/4S Add-On

    Quick Review: Kogeto Dot Panoramic iPhone 4/4S Add-On

    The Kogeto Dot isn’t necessarily new. We spotted it back at TechCrunch Disrupt New York and found it to be quite the fun little iPhone accessory, but back then it was merely a prototype. Today, we’ve gotten our hands on the real deal and I have to say, I’ve had a pretty good time playing around with this little guy. Along with the accessory itself, you’ll also need… Read More

  • Nokia’s Crazy Bendy Kinetic Concept Blew Your Mind? Watch This!

    Nokia’s Crazy Bendy Kinetic Concept Blew Your Mind? Watch This!

    Nokia is totally ready for the future. They’ve already debuted a totally insane flexible kinetic interface concept, and now they’ve even drawn up an implementation for it: HumanForm. No, the phone doesn’t look like a you-themed action figure, but rather has a tear drop shape (probably my biggest gripe about the concept). I’m not going to go into too much detail… Read More

  • Class-Action Lawsuit Forces Apple To Replace Frayed MagSafe Power Cords

    Class-Action Lawsuit Forces Apple To Replace Frayed MagSafe Power Cords

    Any Apple devotee has struggled through the charger situation. Those Mag-Safe T-shaped chargers fray pretty easily, at which point you have to twist and turn the cord to pull in a charge. It’s a huge pain, to say the least. But it appears those struggles are coming to a close, as Apple has lost a lawsuit which will now require the company to either replace MagSafe power cords or hand over… Read More

    The Courageous Tale Of The Nokia Lumia 800 (Video)

    Gather round, dear friends, for a tale of courage and heroism is about to unfold. Rising from a year’s worth of ashes, the Windows-powered Nokia Lumia 800 stands to rewrite Nokia’s potentially devastating fate, which is why Nokia dedicated eight whole minutes of video to its design process.

  • Meet BMW’s New All-Electric i3 SUV And Hybrid-Electric i8 Sports Car

    Meet BMW’s New All-Electric i3 SUV And Hybrid-Electric i8 Sports Car

    Because our resident automotive enthusiast Matt Burns up and decided to go camping this week, I was lucky enough to attend BMW’s sneak preview event in NYC today where I got a first look at two new eco-friendly vehicles: the BMW i3 and i8. Referred to as mega-city vehicles (or MCVs if you will), both are built with the urban driver in mind, capitalizing on green features and stability. Read More

    Apple: Siri Only Works On iPhone 4S, We Have No Plans To Support Older Devices

    Recently we’ve seen reports flying around claiming that Apple has plans to put Siri on older generation devices, and may even be testing out the personal assistant on the iPhone 4. The news seemed more than a bit unexpected, so we decided to wait for Apple’s confirmation. Lo and behold, Apple has responded just as we thought they would: Siri is an iPhone 4S exclusive, at least in… Read More

Shazam, potentially one of the most magical apps ever, has partnered with Delivery Agent to let you discover consumer products in TV shows and ultimately purchase them. First to jump on board with the service is… Read More

  • My Witness Catches Bad Guys In The Act

    My Witness Catches Bad Guys In The Act

    It’s not often that you’re attacked by a random stranger, but if/when it does happen preparedness is the key. Think back to your karate days, carry pepper spray, use the buddy system, and stay alert. And when all that fails, download the My Witness app on your phone. In the rare case that you actually have the opportunity to snap a picture of your attacker, you’ll be glad… Read More

    Samsung Galaxy Nexus Availability Leaks: Web-Only Launch On November 21

    The pending launch date of the next Google phone, Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus, has been a bit of a mystery up until now. “November” has always been a sure thing, but when exactly we’d be able to get up close and personal was as yet unknown.

  • Barnes & Noble Officially Unveils The 7-Inch Nook Tablet

    Barnes & Noble Officially Unveils The 7-Inch Nook Tablet

Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, I’m pleased to introduce you to the Nook Tablet. Read More

  • Motorola Droid RAZR Review: So Close, Yet So Far

    Motorola Droid RAZR Review: So Close, Yet So Far

    The Droid RAZR has been one highly anticipated phone, but can its performance keep up with the hype? Is it too big to be comfortable? Is there a catch that comes along with that 7.1mm waist line? Does 4G LTE paired with a dual-core processor really make a difference? Well, it’s basically the entire point of my existence to answer these questions for you. So off we go. Read More

    In this week’s news from the front lines, the European Commission has decided to initiate a preliminary investigation of Samsung’s litigation tactics with regards to its standards-essential patents.

    Feeling useless? The folks over at WhiteyBoard seem to have a solution: WhiteyPaint. As WhiteyPaint’s motto so clearly points out, “you’re useless without it.” While the verdict’s still out on that one, it does seem like a pretty nifty little product. It’s basically a quick-drying translucent paint that you can write on with whiteboard markers, and according… Read More

  • Samsung Focus Flash Review: High-End Feel At A Low Price

    Samsung Focus Flash Review: High-End Feel At A Low Price

    The Samsung Focus Flash has achieved something I didn’t think it would — it managed to tear me away from my new iPhone 4S. Granted, I’ve had the 4S a bit longer than the Focus Flash, but I don’t think it was the “shiny and new” factor pulling me in; it was Mango and I heart it. As for the phone itself, it performed surprisingly well for its specs. Where… Read More

    Hands-On With The Samsung Focus S For AT&T

  • Siri, Why Are You So Underwhelming?

    Siri, Why Are You So Underwhelming?

    When Apple first unveiled the iPhone 4S, there was one feature that left every jaw in the room on the floor. Her name is Siri. Scott Forstall demoed the personal assistant at Apple’s media event, and the entire presentation went off without a hitch. Then, as expected, Apple released their commercials, which were equally impressive. In short, everyone and their brother was amped for… Read More

    Take A Peek At China’s Version Of The Motorola Droid RAZR

    The Droid RAZR has certainly been the talk of the the town lately, with its 7.1mm waist line, 1.2GHz dual-core processor and uniquely beautiful design. According to the leaks, the RAZR should be gracing shelves by November 10 both here in the States and in the UK. But what about China? Read More
