  • IDC Halves PC Shipment Forecast For 2011, Expects Rebound In 2012

    IDC slashed its worldwide PC shipment growth forecast today to about half of its original prediction, as consumer demand for personal computers remains weak in mature markets.

  • ComScore: Android Keeps Growing, Apple iOS Slides By RIM's BlackBerry OS

    Recent figures from ComScore pretty much reflect what we already know: Google’s Android OS continues to grow, while RIM’s BlackBerry platform has fallen behind Apple’s iOS to the number three spot. Based on just how many Android handsets are currently in the market, it’s no surprise that Android takes the cake for this quarter. Read More

  • To Play Or To Eat? Swedish McDonalds Lets You Do Both

    Thirty or forty years ago, when I had yet to grace a womb, commercials were five minutes long, and went into great detail explaining to us the joys of cigarettes, red meat, and alcohol (or so I’m told). Apparently, people had to get off the couch to change the channel back then, so I’m assuming most of those five-minute commercials were watched all the way through. Things… Read More

  • HTC Sensation Suffers Through iPhone 4-Esque "Death Grip" Issues

    So remember that one time when you had to hold your iPhone 4 just right or else you lost the signal and dropped your call? Apparently a similar problem has befallen the HTC Sensation: if you hold the phone a certain way, aka “death grip,” the phone loses its signal, its Bluetooth connection, and its Wi-Fi connection, all in one foul swoop.

  • Adobe CEO: Android Will Beat iOS On Tablets

    Adobe’s big man upstairs Shantanu Narayen is betting on Google’s Honeycomb platform rather than Apple’s iOS in the current battle for tablet OS supremacy. Can anyone guess why? If you said “Flash support,” you’re right on the money. Apple CEO Steve Jobs has long been against the use of Flash on iDevices, openly calling the software insecure and crash-inducing. Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy S 4G (Refurb) Hits T-Mo's Prepaid Site With $350 Price Tag

    On a scale from one to ten, how excited do you think we were to see the Samsung Galaxy S 4G (Refurb) go live on T-Mobile’s prepaid site? If you guessed somewhere around a six or a seven, good job! If you guessed eleven, you don’t quite understand how scales work. Read More

  • Rosetta Stone iPad App Hits App Store

    Short version: Rosetta Stone launched its iPad app today, which is basically just a lighter version of its core “course” software. The app itself is nothing extraordinary, but the way it teaches languages is pretty awesome.
