  • Samsung Galaxy S II U.S. Variants Pose For The Camera

    Samsung Galaxy S II U.S. Variants Pose For The Camera

    We’ve heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S II, which isn’t all that surprising seeing that it sold 3 million units in its first 55 on the market. As people from other parts of the globe got to experience the wonder that is the GSII, we here in the States played the waiting game. But it’s so close I can almost taste the Gingerbread. On August 29, Samsung will finally unveil… Read More

  • OnLive Adds Group Voice Chat, Parental Controls And Facebook Achievement Sharing

    OnLive Adds Group Voice Chat, Parental Controls And Facebook Achievement Sharing

    Cloud gaming service OnLive has been getting better and better. We had a blast checking out the OnLive booth at E3 this year, and you better believe the service’s usage will have gone up since GameStop inadvertently gave OnLive a ton of great publicity yesterday. But OnLive isn’t resting on its laurels, as new user-requested features are rolling out today. Read More

  • Mystery 10-Inch Sleeve At T-Mobile Suggests New Tablet On The Way

    Mystery 10-Inch Sleeve At T-Mobile Suggests New Tablet On The Way

    Well, what do we have here? Looks like T-Mobile has just snagged a new tablet accessory. We’re just not sure which tablet the accessory is supposed to go with. This 10-inch leather sleeve isn’t going to fit very well on either of T-Mobile’s current slate offerings: the 7-inch Dell Streak 7 or the 8.9-inch T-Mobile G-Slate. Read More

  • NYC.gov Goes Down When We Need It Most: Here Are Some Alternative Info Sources (Update)

    NYC.gov Goes Down When We Need It Most: Here Are Some Alternative Info Sources (Update)

    So Irene, the massive hurricane aimed straight for the East coast, is in quite a hurry to come visit us, with winds reaching 115 mph. And it’s looking like she’s bearing down on New York City. One little problem: nyc.gov is down, which makes it pretty difficult to check out whether or not you should run for cover or kick back and relax. Sites go down all the time, and normally… Read More

  • 24/7 3D Network 3net Brings Kid-Friendly Content To The Third Dimension

    24/7 3D Network 3net Brings Kid-Friendly Content To The Third Dimension

    If you own a 3D TV, you should already know about 3net. It’s a joint venture network from Sony, Discovery and IMAX that displays 3D content all day, every day, which is pretty awesome considering the amount of 3D content out there is severely lacking. It first launched with quite a variety of nature-style shows and documentaries, perfect for the 3D space, but today a more… Read More

  • Microsoft Patenting Multi-Screen, Multi-Touch Gestures

    Microsoft Patenting Multi-Screen, Multi-Touch Gestures

    Back in February of 2010, Microsoft applied for a number of patents related to touchscreen gestures on a tablet. Many of them concern a dual-screen device, conjuring images of the once highly-anticipated Courier slate. The others focus mainly on bezel gestures. Those patents have gone public now, though they have not in fact been granted yet. With IP wars raging across the globe… Read More

  • OfficeTime Expense Tracking Software Expands To iOS With iPhone, iPad Apps

    OfficeTime Expense Tracking Software Expands To iOS With iPhone, iPad Apps

    Time and expense tracking is tedious, even on a personal level. Dealing with it in an office environment is clearly much worse. But OfficeTime is looking to make that a bit easier, today announcing its expansion from just a PC/Mac desktop app to iOS. For something as annoying as expense tracking, OfficeTime took a smart approach for mobile. The theme here is “the fewer taps, the… Read More

  • Motorola Xoom LTE “Pilot” Program Underway

    Motorola Xoom LTE “Pilot” Program Underway

    Quite a while ago, Verizon promised that its Motorola Xoom tablet would get an update allowing the slate to run on the carrier’s 4G LTE network by the Spring. If you’re somehow surviving under a rock and don’t know what that means, it’s a big deal. The increase in speed adds incalculable value to the tablet since, ya’ know, time is money. The only thing is that… Read More

  • RIM Launches Inexplicable BBM Music App

    RIM Launches Inexplicable BBM Music App

    Though Slacker and Pandora have made the migration, the BlackBerry App World’s selection of music apps is pretty limited compared to competing platforms. In fact, the App World is found wanting in a couple different categories. But that doesn’t mean RIM isn’t open to improvement, albeit incremental improvement. That said, RIM today announced its BBM Music app. It’s… Read More

  • EscapeCapsule Lets You Use Your iPhone 4 In Water, Sand, Mud, Snow, And Other Gross Stuff

    EscapeCapsule Lets You Use Your iPhone 4 In Water, Sand, Mud, Snow, And Other Gross Stuff

    There really should be no argument when I say that a case for your iPhone 4 is nothing short of necessary. Unless you’ve got cash to burn, the iPhone is just too damn expensive to leave unprotected. The only problem is that most of them make your phone pretty clunky, which sucks since Apple works hard to make the iPhone as slim as possible. Unfortunately, the only trade-off for all the… Read More

  • Samsung: We’re Not Buying HP’s PC Business

    Samsung: We’re Not Buying HP’s PC Business

    Since HP made the announcement it would be spinning off its PC business, there have been questions over who would scoop it up. A number of different OEMs fit the bill and have the cash to take on HP’s PSG, but one in particular seemed to be looking for an outsourcing partner before HP ever made its announcement. Digitimes reported that Samsung had been in talks with Quanta, Compal… Read More

  • Point, Apple: Court Issues EU-Wide Preliminary Injunction On Galaxy Smartphones (Update)

    Point, Apple: Court Issues EU-Wide Preliminary Injunction On Galaxy Smartphones (Update)

    A pretty sizable chunk of Europe was dealt a rather massive blow this morning in the form of a preliminary injunction on some Galaxy smartphones. Of course, this was at the behest of Apple. The tablets — the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and Galaxy Tab 7 — made it out of the court room alive, which is a pretty big deal for Samsung who just a few weeks ago had to deal with an EU-wide… Read More

  • China Never Received An Application For Approval Of Googorola Deal

    China Never Received An Application For Approval Of Googorola Deal

    The era of Googorola is nearly upon us, and the implications of such a deal are still greatly unknown to most of us. We could see some pretty amazing (and odd) gizmos and gadgets spawn from this little get together, and we can definitely expect a stronger Android platform than ever before. Other Android OEMs have remained relatively at bay thus far, but that could change in an instant when… Read More

  • Logitech Introduces Surprisingly Useful New iPad Accessories

    Logitech Introduces Surprisingly Useful New iPad Accessories

    I’ve never really been a fan of all the special add-ons and accessories sold alongside electronics. In my opinion, a nice solid case is as far as phone/tablet accessories should go. But at a meeting with Logitech recently, a couple of iPad accessories definitely caught my eye. Both are very different in nature — one’s for gaming while the other is more of a utility device… Read More

  • CNN In Talks To Buy Zite iPad App?

    CNN In Talks To Buy Zite iPad App?

    Flipboard-esque magazine-style aggregation apps are all the rage right now. Obviously Flipboard has the space nailed, and Pulse is a nice alternative as well. But one aggregation app seems to have caught the attention of a big name news publication — Zite. The same company that once had a mailbox full of cease-and-desist notices from beastly publications like the Washington Post and AP… Read More

  • Microsoft Asks For An Import Ban On Motorola Smartphones

    Microsoft Asks For An Import Ban On Motorola Smartphones

    Exhausted from a couple weeks in the European litigation ring, Apple has tagged in Microsoft to pick up the fight against Android. And it would seem that the divide-and-conquer strategy is panning out quite nicely for the duo we never thought would be. Microsoft today filed a suit accusing Google’s betrothed, Motorola Mobility, of infringing on seven of Microsoft’s patents that… Read More

  • Canon Unveils New Line Of PowerShot Digital Cameras

    Canon Unveils New Line Of PowerShot Digital Cameras

    Nothing goes better with back-to-school clothes than a nice little point-and-shoot. Thus, Canon’s timing couldn’t be any better. Today the new PowerShot digital cameras are making their debut, and from the looks of it, Canon has its bases covered. We have three new models: the PowerShot SX150 IS, PowerShot Elph 510 HS, and the PowerShot Elph 310 HS. Most impressive by a mile is… Read More

    Nokia’s Symbian Belle Teaser Gives Us Exact Arrival Date, Fails To Tease

    Teasers are tricky. Companies have to find a way to get you excited about something without telling you what that something is, which can be difficult. It’s especially difficult to keep the secret product under wraps when the teaser file is named after the product. That said, Nokia’s Symbian Belle teaser is now more of an announcement than anything else, and we now know the… Read More
