  • Lenovo And YouTube Announce Space Lab: The Ultimate Science Fair

    Lenovo And YouTube Announce Space Lab: The Ultimate Science Fair

    When I was just a wee pupil, an excellent science fair project didn’t get you much. At best, you walked away with a blue ribbon and the satisfaction of knowing your paper mache volcano was better than your friends’. These days, a great science project can win you much more, like the opportunity to attend a rocket launch in Japan. Way cooler, yes? Thanks to a partnership between… Read More

  • RIM Introduces NFC-Powered BlackBerry Tag

    RIM Introduces NFC-Powered BlackBerry Tag

    It was all the way back in February when RIM first promised that “many, if not most” BlackBerry handsets in 2011 will feature NFC technology. It proved true with both the BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930, along with the BlackBerry Curve 9350/9360/9370, and we should see plenty more where that came from. That said, RIM co-CEO Jim Balsillie had one more trick up his sleeve at this… Read More

    iPhone 4S Tops 1 Million Pre-Orders In 24 Hours

    Well, what do you know? Despite all the “disappointment” over a basic refresh rather than a newly designed iPhone, Apple has still managed to break records. Apple today revealed that pre-orders for its iPhone 4S have topped one million in the span of 24 hours, putting to shame its earlier pre-order record of 600,000 iPhone 4 pre-orders in a day.

    RadioShack’s Trade-In Program May Just Get You A Free iPhone 4S

    RadioShack has a trade-in program for used gadgets that (circumstances permitting) may just save you quite a bit on an iPhone 4S. Even better, if you trade in a undamaged 32GB iPhone 4 (scratch free, no battery issues, etc.), you’ll get enough store credit back from RadioShack to purchase a 16GB iPhone 4S and still have money to burn. Well, not burn so much as spend on accessories or… Read More

    Sprint Opens Up Pre-Orders For The iPhone 4

    Sprint has long been Android territory, but today everything changes.

    AppleCare+ Covers Clumsiness, Too

    I drop my iPhone a lot. In fact, since I decided to hang on to my 3GS and hold out for what ended up being a pretty disappointing announcement yesterday, I’ve cared increasingly less each time that thing hits the floor. Once I get my hands on the iPhone 4S… Well, that’s another story. Still, accidents happen all the time and for the cash Apple’s asking, a little… Read More

    Leaked T-Mobile Roadmap Promises Six New Devices On November 2

    It looks like Christmas may come early for T-Mobile customers. Internal documents show four device launches this month and twice as many in November, including the Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Plus tablet. What’s odd is that pieces of this roadmap seem dead-on, while others don’t make a whole lot of sense. So we’ll proceed with caution and figure it out together, shall we? Read More

    FCC To Strengthen Location Accuracy Requirements For All Carriers Using E911 By 2019

    After years of having a GPS-equipped phone, the idea of not having GPS is a little crazy. Even with smartphone adoption rates dramatically increasing, there are still plenty of folks out there with maps and awesome memories. With all of this great mobile technology out there, it’s only fair that those in need of help during times of crisis should be able to count on emergency services… Read More

    Siri: My “Humble” Female Personal Secretary

    Today, Apple introduced us to the iPhone 4S. It’s hard not to feel let down after the iPhone 5 rumor mill was spinning at full force just yesterday (courtesy of the craziest rumor yet), but a couple 4S features were enough to perk up my spirit. One feature in particular, Siri, pretty much blew my mind. It is, far and away, the coolest voice control system I’ve ever heard of, and… Read More
