  • Street By 50 Headphones Review: Loud Enough For Everyone (Literally)

    Street By 50 Headphones Review: Loud Enough For Everyone (Literally)

    The Street by 50 headphones get the job done when it comes to sound quality and volume, but there are a few quirks that didn’t sit well with me. When all is said and done, a decision to buy these headphones all comes down to how serious you are about music and how often you use a pair of cans. Read More

  • Toshiba Thrive 7″ Review: Cute, But Clunky

    Toshiba Thrive 7″ Review: Cute, But Clunky

    While the 7-inch Toshiba Thrive is much more comfortable in the hand than its 10-inch counterpart, many of the best features in big brother never migrated over to the 7-incher. That said, this still may be the slate for you if gaming and web-surfing take precedence over e-reading. Otherwise, I’d point you to the Amazon Kindle Fire. Read More

  • T-Mobile’s White Samsung Galaxy S II Is Going For $99 This Weekend Only

    T-Mobile’s White Samsung Galaxy S II Is Going For $99 This Weekend Only

    The Samsung Galaxy S II is a very special phone. Even though it’s been on the market for quite some time now, it’s still one of the more beastly competitors on Android-flavored shelves. Of course, it’s always had the price tag to prove it, going for between $230 and $250 just about everywhere. But T-Mobile has a pretty sweet deal going on a white Samsung Galaxy S II for… Read More

  • Samsung Releases Extended Battery Bundle (With Cover) For Your New Galaxy Nexus

    Samsung Releases Extended Battery Bundle (With Cover) For Your New Galaxy Nexus

    The Galaxy Nexus is a beautiful phone, no doubt about it. That gorgeous 4.65-inch Super AMOLED Plus display paired with LTE support and a fresh build of ICS thrown in there for good measure is about as good as it gets. But the same things that make this phone great — its massive screen and LTE radio — are also the things that will leave you screaming at it at 4p.m. on a Thursday… Read More

  • Galaxy Nexus Gets Launch-Day OTA Update To Squash A Few Bugs

    Galaxy Nexus Gets Launch-Day OTA Update To Squash A Few Bugs

    The Galaxy Nexus has been on sale here in the U.S. for mere hours, and it’s already getting its first refresh. But reports are bound to come in over the next week or so, but it looks as though Google had a few things that still needed fixing upon release. In Android 4.0.2 build ICL53F, you’ll see improvements to your 3G/4G connection, your Wifi connection (including automatic… Read More

  • Sony Tablet S Review: Slick, But Somewhat Slow

    Sony Tablet S Review: Slick, But Somewhat Slow

    The Sony Tablet S is actually a pretty hot 9.4-inch slate, and doesn’t look like every other Android tablet out there (thank goodness). On the performance side, however, I found myself frustrated on more than one occasion. The design is everything I’ve been wanting from Android tabs, but unfortunately I just couldn’t ignore the underwhelming responsiveness of the slate. Read More

  • Grand Theft Auto III Lands In The App Store, Android Market

    Grand Theft Auto III Lands In The App Store, Android Market

    If stealing cars, running people over, and being an all-around gangster is your idea of fun, I come bearing good tidings of great joy this holiday season. Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary Edition has made its way to your phone courtesy of Rockstar Games. Launched back in 2001, Grand Theft Auto III has been one of the most popular games of the last decade. Read More

  • Guess Where This Crab Lives! (Hint: Inside An Xbox 360)

    Guess Where This Crab Lives! (Hint: Inside An Xbox 360)

    We’ve all been there. After years of faithful service and happy memories, the trusty old (insert gadget here) is tuckered out and needs replacing. Some of us recycle our old gadgetry (and bravo/a to you), while others might try to sell it on the cheap, eBay-style. But here‘s something I bet you never considered doing with your old… say, Xbox 360. Read More

  • What Will Happen If Verizon Fails To Launch The Galaxy Nexus Tomorrow?

    What Will Happen If Verizon Fails To Launch The Galaxy Nexus Tomorrow?

    It seems as though Verizon and Google have really screwed the pooch when it comes to the Galaxy Nexus launch. As of this very moment, we’re on our eighth rumored release date: tomorrow, December 15. The first was all the way back on November 3. In fact, these delays and the vague availability information provided by Verizon has led some to create a site entirely dedicated to whether or… Read More

  • YouHaveDownloaded.com Knows What You (And Google, And Sony, And…) Have Downloaded

    YouHaveDownloaded.com Knows What You (And Google, And Sony, And…) Have Downloaded

    With all this Protect IP/SOPA madness in the works, it’s worth taking a good hard look inward. What have you downloaded? And how much? And worse, what has your little brother downloaded? One site aims to answer this question for you: YouHaveDownloaded.com. Read More

  • Security Flaw In Windows Phone 7.5 Kills The Messaging Hub (Video)

    Security Flaw In Windows Phone 7.5 Kills The Messaging Hub (Video)

    While most of the Windows Phone 7.5 operating system is playing catch up to Android and iOS, the Messaging Hub truly shines as a stand-out feature. It allows you to thread Facebook messages, IMs and texts all into one unified conversation — exactly what a messaging app should be. The only problem is that there seems to be a security flaw that disables the Messaging Hub entirely, all… Read More

  • AT&T, T-Mobile Ask To Postpone Court Proceedings To “Evaluate Options” (Update)

    AT&T, T-Mobile Ask To Postpone Court Proceedings To “Evaluate Options” (Update)

    And the curve balls keep coming. On Friday the Department of Justice announced its intentions to postpone its antitrust suit with AT&T and T-Mobile, as the deal they were investigating had been summarily yanked off of the table just a couple weeks earlier. Now AT&T has responded, asking for its own winter recess to “evaluate all options.” Read More

  • Lenovo’s 2005S LePad Goes Live In China For Just $415

    Lenovo’s 2005S LePad Goes Live In China For Just $415

    Size matters, folks. Especially in the minds of our beloved electronics makers. Even with the 3.7-inch LePhone and the 7-inch A1 tablet on the market, Lenovo still made plans to fill the 5-inch space. Today those plans have taken shape with a pricing announcement for the 5-inch LePad S2005 Android mini-tab (or giant phone). Read More

  • RadioShack Combines Promos To Offer The iPhone 4S (AT&T) On The Cheap

    RadioShack Combines Promos To Offer The iPhone 4S (AT&T) On The Cheap

    So you missed out on getting the new iPhone 4S when it came out. Worse, all your friends got the new Apple flagship and make fun of your 3GS at every possible opportunity. Plus, all the holiday shopping you’ve been doing has made it nearly impossible to afford the 4S without giving up every shred of financial responsibility. If that description fits you, even a little bit, then rise… Read More

  • Rogers Extends LTE Reach In Canada

    Rogers Extends LTE Reach In Canada

    Folks in the Great White North have reason to be excited today, especially if they’re a customer of the Rogers network. Canada’s largest wireless carrier has today announced the expansion of its new LTE network in the Greater Toronto area and surrounding Vancouver. Read More

  • Is December 15 Verizon’s New Galaxy Nexus Launch Date?

    Is December 15 Verizon’s New Galaxy Nexus Launch Date?

    The Galaxy Nexus, while something we’ve been super excited about, is turning out to be a real pain. Why? Because we can’t seem to figure out when the bleep this thing is supposed to launch. We heard it was supposed to be around today, and then we heard it wasn’t, and then we heard so many different dates it started to get stupid. Now, however, Droid-Life is claiming to… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy S II Ad Both Targets And Mocks Apple Fanbois

    Samsung Galaxy S II Ad Both Targets And Mocks Apple Fanbois

    Sure, I’ve been terrified by the HTC Rhyme commercial, absolutely baffled by a 30-second Motorola Droid Bionic ad featuring two seconds of the Droid Bionic, and I’ve been amused by Sprint’s Evo 3D spots. But no phone commercial has ever made me laugh out loud quite like this latest one from Samsung. Read More

  • T-Mobile To YouMail: We Told You About This A Month Ago

    T-Mobile To YouMail: We Told You About This A Month Ago

    Yesterday something strange happened. YouMail, a visual voicemail app with millions of downloads, was pulled from the Android Market. Confused, YouMail reached out to Google about what the dealio was, only to hear that T-Mobile had requested that the app be pulled. T-Mobile complained to Google of “adverse network disruption,” which was blamed squarely on YouMail. According to… Read More

  • Apple Loses Big Against Motorola In Germany (Update)

    Apple Loses Big Against Motorola In Germany (Update)

    Apple has lost a preliminary injunction filed by Motorola Mobility over a wireless-related patent. That’s not something we’re hearing a lot of these days, but it seems to be the case over in Germany, where a judge in the Mannheim Regional Court has ruled that the iPhone and iPad (3G versions) infringe European Patent 1010336, covering a “method for performing countdown… Read More

    2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Nook Tablet And Kindle Fire Accessories That Are Must-Have

    These new e-reader-tablet hybrids are shaping up to be the hottest gifts of this year. Amazon’s Kindle Fire is flying off both virtual and real-world shelves and Barnes & Noble has offered up a worthy opponent in the form of its Nook Tablet. But even at their relatively low prices, these e-readers might still be a bit pricey. That’s why we’ve laid out some of the… Read More
