  • Verizon Mistakenly Leaks Video Of The Touchscreen-Sporting BlackBerry Bold 9930

    Verizon Mistakenly Leaks Video Of The Touchscreen-Sporting BlackBerry Bold 9930

    Mistakes happen. Sometimes they spur a round of seriously unwanted consequences, but every once in a while, a mistake pays off. Maybe not for the person who screwed up, which in this case would be someone in charge of Verizon’s website, but definitely for us. If you have yet to pick up what I’m putting down, this morning brought with it another leak — the BlackBerry Bold 9930. Read More

  • Canon’s X Mark I Mouse Lite Is A Jack Of All Trades

    Canon’s X Mark I Mouse Lite Is A Jack Of All Trades

    All-in-one. That’s my golden word. If you want to sell me something, make sure it can do ten completely random never-would-have-expected-it-to tasks, and I’m in. Three-in-one is only slightly less enticing, but still worth a good inspection. Canon. today introduced its X Mark I Mouse Lite — a three-in-one calculator, keypad and laser mouse designed by the Canon camera team. Read More

  • SamsungDive: Apple’s “Find My iPhone” Just Got A Rival

    SamsungDive: Apple’s “Find My iPhone” Just Got A Rival

    Back in the day, the worst part of losing a phone was re-inputting contact information and coughing up the dough for another handset. With today’s smartphones, losing your phone is like losing everything. Not only is your very expensive piece of hardware gone, but your banking and credit card info, contacts, passwords, and social networking accounts are all up for grabs out in the world. Read More

Now, small businesses that use QuickBooks Pro, QuickBooks Premier and QuickBooks Online will have access to their data from their Android phone.

  • Samsung May Trounce Nokia Once And For All… Is Apple Next?

    Samsung May Trounce Nokia Once And For All… Is Apple Next?

    We’ve been saying for a while now that Samsung is primed and ready to dethrone Nokia from its nearly 15 year reign as the top smartphone maker in the world, and it would seem the moment is upon us. We can’t say for sure, as Samsung hasn’t released official numbers, but research firm Strategy Analytics told Bloomberg that Samsung’s official sales numbers should fall… Read More

  • Leaked LG Roadmap Points To Five Android Smartphones And One Mango Fantasy

    Leaked LG Roadmap Points To Five Android Smartphones And One Mango Fantasy

    The only thing better than a leak is six leaks, which is exactly what we have for you today. Bundled nicely in the form of a 2011 LG Roadmap (discovered by PocketNow), five Android smartphones and one Mango-powered handset have found their way to the web. Along with the recently announced Optimus Pro and Optimus Net, LG has quite a bit more in store for the rest of the year. However, we… Read More

  • Big Surprise! The iPad Trumps Android Tablets At The Office

    Big Surprise! The iPad Trumps Android Tablets At The Office

    Huge news! The iPad is trumping Android tablets in the enterprise! Actually this is rather small news and could probably be assumed by just about anyone who knows what they’re talking about. Either way, the smarty arties at Good Technology kindly mapped out the stats sans assumption. Tablets made up 27 percent of Good Technology’s mobile device activations (the network includes 49… Read More

  • Who Could Have Guessed: 3D Hurts Your Eyes

    Who Could Have Guessed: 3D Hurts Your Eyes

    After experimenting on 24 adults, a research team at the University of California, Berkeley has determined that viewing content on a stereo 3D display hurts your eyes and your brain. The scientific term is “vergence-accomodation,” which means that the eye must constantly adjust to both the distance of the physical screen and that of the 3D content. This can supposedly cause… Read More

  • Carl Icahn In Talks With Motorola About Its Massive Patent Portfolio

    Carl Icahn In Talks With Motorola About Its Massive Patent Portfolio

    In the land of mobile, patents have never been more crucial. He with the most patents has the most power. Period. In the last few months alone we’ve seen Apple and Samsung duke it out, Apple and HTC take it to the mat, Google chat it up with InterDigital, and I won’t even start on Nortel. Billionaire investor Carl Icahn — notorious for pumping money into companies and… Read More

  • Activision CEO Spills The Beans: Guitar Hero Isn’t Dead, Just Resting

    Activision CEO Spills The Beans: Guitar Hero Isn’t Dead, Just Resting

    As a barely 23-year-old, my deepest connection to most classic Rock songs is through a PlayStation game. My favorite PlayStation game. You may have heard of it — it’s called Guitar Hero. So when Activision said that it was calling it quits on Guitar Hero, I found myself humming: “lay your weary head to rest, don’t you cry no more.” Ok, maybe I exaggerate. But it was… Read More

  • T-Mobile’s Motorola Defy Gets An AT&T-Bound Successor?

    T-Mobile’s Motorola Defy Gets An AT&T-Bound Successor?

    I’ve never really been a fan of anything “rugged” — all that heft and rubber tends to push me in another direction. However, the Motorola Defy for T-Mobile did spark my interest with its bright, sharp screen, nice size and shape, and the ability to swim. This was a strong seller for T-Mobile priced at just $100 on-contract (and $50 elsewhere). But according to TIMN… Read More

  • Android App Player For BlackBerry PlayBook Leaked Out In Beta Form

    Android App Player For BlackBerry PlayBook Leaked Out In Beta Form

    What is RIM’s greatest obstacle? Honestly, it’s a tough question to answer seeing that the Waterloo-based company hasn’t had the best few months — but if I had to pick just one issue, it’d be lack of apps. Not having enough apps on a given platform is akin to sitting down to a perfectly set dinner table and getting no food. Luckily, that Android App player that… Read More

  • T-Mobile Employee Perk: Gingerbread G2Xs That Don’t Have Narcolepsy

    T-Mobile Employee Perk: Gingerbread G2Xs That Don’t Have Narcolepsy

    Remember that one time that you bought the T-Mobile G2x and it randomly restarted? And you were like, “Whoa, that’s weird,” and then it did it again! And again. And again. For three months. Yeah, we’re done with that. Read More

  • After Nortel Loss, Google Looks To InterDigital To Strengthen Patent Portfolio

    After Nortel Loss, Google Looks To InterDigital To Strengthen Patent Portfolio

    Google is in some trouble. Eric Schmidt swears he hasn’t a care in the world, but the truth of the matter is Apple has Android in its crosshairs, and that won’t change until Google’s patent portfolio broadens. As of now, the search giant currently holds less than 1,000 wireless-related patents, and after the devastating loss of Nortel’s 6,000-strong patent… Read More

  • Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Gets A Rather Early Price Cut From Verizon

    Sony Ericsson Xperia Play Gets A Rather Early Price Cut From Verizon

    Back in February when the Xperia Play was finally unveiled, there were quite a few people excited to see a gaming-centric phone headed to the States. And why not? Gaming continues to be one of the top activities on smartphones, and were it not for all that annoying glass-swiping, it would probably be the top activity, right? Well, maybe not, since the D-pad-equipped Xperia Play has been… Read More

  • Twentieth Century Fox Hooks Up Android With Digital Copies Of Its Blu-ray Titles

    Twentieth Century Fox Hooks Up Android With Digital Copies Of Its Blu-ray Titles

    Android fans have long been left out when it comes to watching movies on-the-go. Yes, I know, Netflix hooked up a few Android devices back in May, and then Hulu entered the mix in late June. Even still, only a couple handsets were compatible with the apps while iOS devices not only got to stream from Netflix for the past year or so, but also have the option to download digital copies of… Read More

  • T-Mobile Revamps Unlimited Smartphone Plans

    T-Mobile Revamps Unlimited Smartphone Plans

    T-Mobile today announced that its unlimited smartphone plans are due for yet another makeover, which should offer cheaper options for post-paid smartphone customers. Unfortunately, the release was missing a few key details like pricing, but we do know that they will be called Value plans and provide both single-line and multi-line options. We also know that the new plans will take effect July 24. Read More

  • Finally! Samsung Mobile Boss Promises Galaxy S II U.S. Launch In August

    Finally! Samsung Mobile Boss Promises Galaxy S II U.S. Launch In August

    It seems those leaked shots of the Sprint-branded Samsung Galaxy S II were the real deal. Samsung’s mobile boss Shin Jong-Kyun told Korean reporters that “we expect to release the Galaxy S II in the U.S. market sometime in August.” The iPhone competitor originally launched in Korea back in April, and then shortly thereafter in the UK. For almost three long months… Read More

  • D-Link And OpenDNS To Bring Parental Controls To Your Router

    D-Link And OpenDNS To Bring Parental Controls To Your Router

    Today’s kids have grown up in a world where the internet has always been around, Google has always been there to help, and having a smartphone is the norm. It only follows that they’d be super comfortable with the web, using it just as proficiently, if not more so, than their parents. That’s all well and good, but there’s this one pretty huge problem: the internet… Read More
