  • Huawei Announces The Vision Smartphone With New “3D” User Interface

    Huawei Announces The Vision Smartphone With New “3D” User Interface

    Huawei has taken a note from the big boys like Samsung and HTC and decided to build a UI of its own. Unlike TouchWiz or Sense, Huawei’s UI has something different to bring to the table: 3D. Now don’t get too excited, or too peeved either (if you’re an anti-3D kinda fella), because this 3D isn’t all that legit. It’s more the appearance of 3D than it is true… Read More

    FCC Analysis Reveals ISP Speed Winners And Losers

    So let’s say you walk into a Best Buy looking for a new tablet. You walk up to the guy in the blue polo and tell him what you’re looking for. After taking you to the tablet section, he whips out a handkerchief and blindfolds you. “They’re all really good!” he promises. “The one on the left is $499, the one in the middle is $549, and the one on the right is… Read More

  • ESRB Game Ratings App Enters The Windows Marketplace

    ESRB Game Ratings App Enters The Windows Marketplace

    One look at Grand Theft Auto 4 and you’re probably not thinking, “Little Timmy or Susie would just love that game.” No one wants their kids desensitized to reasonless mass murder or the dreaded F-bomb, and understandably so. Let the kids be kids. Well it turns out if you own a Windows-powered phone, you now have access to the Entertainment Software Rating Board app, where… Read More

  • T-Mobile Rebounds With 7-Eleven After Radio Shack Split

    T-Mobile Rebounds With 7-Eleven After Radio Shack Split

    Breaking up is hard to do, but T-Mobile and Radio Shack seem to be handling the split rather well, all things considered. After Radio Shack alleged that T-Mo materially breached the terms of their agreement, the two have gone their separate ways. Or at least, they will on September 15. This is more of the awkward, still-living-together phase. In the mean time, Radio Shack has moved on to the… Read More

    LG’s New Premium 3D TV Set Works With Passive Glasses (That’s A Good Thing!)

The LW980S is a passive glasses set that taps LG’s Cinema 3D technology, equipped with a NANO Full LED backlit screen. For those who aren’t well versed in 3D jargon, passive glasses means that they don’t have to be charged, and are thus, less… Read More

  • HTC Vs. Apple, Round II: UK Edition

    HTC Vs. Apple, Round II: UK Edition

    Apple and HTC are at it again — but this time the fight has migrated over to the UK. On July 29 in London, HTC filed a lawsuit against Apple, reports Bloomberg. There hasn’t been any word confirming that this lawsuit is tied to the current patent tussle between the two phone makers, but it would be quite the surprise if it wasn’t. Read More

  • T-Mobile’s New Terms & Conditions Provide For Value Plan Migrations

    T-Mobile’s New Terms & Conditions Provide For Value Plan Migrations

    Anyone who’s ever taken a stab at reading through a Terms & Conditions agreement knows that they normally rival the Iliad in length. There are two reasons companies do this: first, the more words, the more coverage and protection that company gets within its T&C, and second, the less likely you are to actually read it and find out that you’ve agreed to sell your first… Read More

    Windows Phone Logo Refresh Fits A Square Peg In A Round Hole

    Well, what is this we have popping up all over the place? It’s pretty familiar with that Windows logo in the center, but shouldn’t it be bundled nicely in a circle? Nope. Not anymore. According to Japanese Windows Phone evangelist Takahashi, that little glowing Windows Phone circle is no more — the revolutionary and innovative shape called “square” will now… Read More

    No Galaxy Tab 10.1 For The Outback Until The Apple-Samsung War Cools Down

    G’day, mates. At least, it’s a good Monday for us. Australians, on the other hand, have just been excluded from all the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 fun as a result of the continuing patent battle between Samsung and Apple. During a break in the hearing, both parties reached an agreement whereby Samsung would stop advertising the Tab 10.1 in Australia and not sell the device until… Read More

    Buy A New Mac, Install iLife On Your Other Macs With This Simple Workaround

    Good news!

As luck, and Apple, would have it, once you have a licensed copy of iLife ‘11 (like the one that comes with your new Mac) attached to your Mac App Store… Read More

  • Video: This Guy Plays Air Drums That Actually Make Music

    Video: This Guy Plays Air Drums That Actually Make Music

    I find myself playing the air drums rather regularly when boppin’ along to some tunes, and the drum set on Rock Band is by far my favorite instrument, but neither of those hold a candle to what Maayan Migdal has up his sleeve. My air drums don’t make real music. My Rock Band drums do, but they also take up a hunk of space in my room. His make real music and are invisible. Read More

    Nintendo Boss Takes The Blame For 3DS Sales, Cuts His Paycheck In Half

    When companies go through a rough patch, it’s pretty rare to see the big man upstairs step up in an awesome way. Take RIM for example.

In fact, the company sold 12.1 million units in the second quarter totaling a 123.7 percent year-over-year growth rate. After Q2 taxes, that brings YOY growth to 102.9 percent.

    Samsung Goes Mum With Phone And Tablet Sales Stats

    Anybody notice something missing from Samsung’s Q2 results? Hint: it was the phone/tablet sales data. But why?

    Motorola CEO: Droid Bionic Will Launch In September

    After six… Wait, let’s make that seven months of uncertainty, we might finally have something solid to work with.

    Just As Spotify Settles Into The U.S. Lifestyle It Gets Sued For Patent Infringement

    We expected it would happen eventually because here in the U.S. it happens to everyone… but two weeks? Can’t we just give them a little time to settle in, rearrange their accents and lose a bit of sophistication before we jump on Spotify’s back? Within fourteen days of arriving stateside, PacketVideo has filed a patent infringement suit against Europe’s prized music… Read More
