    T-Mobile Plans To Limit Domestic Data Roaming On April 5

    If you tend to play on the magenta network, a leaked document out of T-Mobile may require your attention. According to TmoNews, the carrier will impose new rules for domestic data roaming on April 5. Instead of the unlimited data goodness you’ve likely grown accustomed to, the carrier will cut you off after you burn through an allotted amount of data. Here’s how it’ll work: Read More

  • Former RIM Co-CEO Will Invest $50 Million As Heins Takes The Reins

    Former RIM Co-CEO Will Invest $50 Million As Heins Takes The Reins

    Whether a “drastic change” is needed or there is already “a lot of change”, former RIM CEO Mike Lazaridis (the same one who flipped out on the BBC during an interview) still believes in the BlackBerry. Forget the fact that the company’s figures are half what they were at the beginning of 2011, and never mind the fact that the stock dropped 8 percent on the first… Read More

  • Motorola Droid Razr Maxx Review: 4G LTE With Solid Battery Life Just Got Real

    Motorola Droid Razr Maxx Review: 4G LTE With Solid Battery Life Just Got Real

    The Droid Razr Maxx by Motorola is a very special phone. You see, I had a bit of a thing for the Droid Razr when it first came out, but it wasn’t quite perfect. It felt a bit light, and I had trouble holding it in my hand since it was so big and so thin at the same time. Plus, battery life was a bust. It wasn’t awful, but it only lasted about nine hours, meaning most people would… Read More

  • Android Smartphone Round-Up: December/January Edition

    Android Smartphone Round-Up: December/January Edition

    We took a break from the Android round-up in December because, well, to be honest I was on vacation. But January gave us a few extra smartphones and the holidays are over, so we’re back. What we’ve got for you today leans into more expensive turf, and unfortunately, our favorite Android devices for the past two months are also exclusively at Verizon, so Big Red subscribers should… Read More

  • RIM’s New CEO Backtracks: “There Is A <em>Lot</em> Of Change”

    RIM’s New CEO Backtracks: “There Is A Lot Of Change”

    On Monday of this week, RIM’s new CEO made a statement that set off a bomb on the blogosphere, and I’m not sure he understood its repercussions at the time. “I don’t think any drastic change is needed.” If you’ve been paying attention to RIM and its numbers, you know that what the company desperately needs is change. Sales are declining, platform market share… Read More

    Fanhattan Adds A Personalized News Feed To The Mix, Lets You Read While You Watch

    We’ve been following the Fanhattan iPhone/iPad app from the very beginning, when it was exclusively available for the iPad and only had a handful of content partners. But the app has come along way in a short time — migrating to the iPhone and adding new content — and is today announcing an update that offers up way more functionality and content, though it may not be the… Read More

    It Only Makes Sense That Samsung Would Delay The Galaxy S III Launch

    Every once in a while something comes along that’s worth a wait, and I think the Samsung Galaxy S III will be one of those things. We’ve all been expecting Samsung’s next flagship to show its face at MWC in February, but according to the Verge, Samsung may have other plans. Anonymous sources who spoke with the Verge claim that the SGSIII will still be available… Read More

  • Nokia Announces 1.5 Billion S40 Phones Sold

    Nokia Announces 1.5 Billion S40 Phones Sold

    Does the term S40 mean anything to you? It’s a mobile operating system built by Nokia for its feature phones back in 1999, and first appeared on the 7110. Well, apparently a lady over in São Paulo, Brazil has today purchased the 1.5 billionth phone running the operating system in the form of the Nokia Asha 303. Nokia is calling it “one of the most significant milestones”… Read More

  • Apple Overtakes Exxon As Most Valuable Traded Company In The World… Again

    Apple Overtakes Exxon As Most Valuable Traded Company In The World… Again

    It happened once before, in August, but that was due to a stock market collapse that left both Exxon and Apple well below their usual share price. This time, however, it would seem that Apple’s Q1 earnings call yesterday has led to a fresh spike on the stock market and what do you know? Apple is once again the most valuable publicly traded company in the world, with a market cap of… Read More

  • LG Nitro HD Surpasses 1 Million Units Sold

    LG Nitro HD Surpasses 1 Million Units Sold

    comScore recently ranked LG second in the world in terms of mobile OEM market share, and it would seem the good news keeps on coming for the smiley-face company. The Nitro HD, or Optimus LTE if you’re from outside of the States, has reportedly hit 1 million units sold. It was first available in South Korea last year in October, and LG sold 600,000 units on its home turf. After… Read More

    Sprint Plans To Kill The BlackBerry PlayBook… Again

    For the second time over the course of a year, it would seem as though Sprint’s ready to kill the BlackBerry PlayBook. A new version of the PlayBook OS is set to debut in February, but according to an EOL (End of Life) report out of SprintFeed, Sprint isn’t prepared for the wait. Not even for a week. Of course, the WiFi-only PlayBook will still be available at various office… Read More

  • Samsung Employee Leaks New Info On Future Galaxy Tabs

    Samsung Employee Leaks New Info On Future Galaxy Tabs

    I just love it when leaks come straight from the horse’s mouth. A leaky horse mouth, if you will. Electronista is reporting that a Samsung product marketing manager by the name of Ryan Bidan has let slip a few details on the next Galaxy Tab or, potentially, the next iteration of the Galaxy Note. According to the report, Mr. Bidan hinted at the inclusion of an S pen (the same stylus… Read More

  • I Didn’t Think Samsung Could Top Its Anti-Apple Ads… Until I Saw These

    I Didn’t Think Samsung Could Top Its Anti-Apple Ads… Until I Saw These

    Next weekend is like the Super Bowl of commercials. Well, actually, next weekend is the Pro Bowl, which is also much like a Super Bowl… for companies… with regards to their commercials. Maybe I should try a different analogy. Either way, next weekend and the weekend after are big for most companies and Samsung is getting started early with its latest “Apple fanbois are… Read More

    Verizon Posts A Net Loss Of $2.02B In Q4 2011

    Ever since the AT&T/T-Mobile saga came to a grinding halt, you’d think that Verizon would be enjoying its reign in peace. But it would seem that the company has posted a net loss of $2.02 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011. At the same time a year earlier, Verizon was seeing a profit of $2.64 billion. Read More

  • 5 Things RIM’s New CEO Absolutely Must Not Do

    5 Things RIM’s New CEO Absolutely Must Not Do

    Whenever a company appoints new leadership here in the tech world, the blogosphere seems to unanimously post about what the new top dog needs to do to make his or her company better. I promise, you’ll see dozens of headlines today talking about what Thorsten Heins must do in order to save BlackBerry. In many cases, I agree with what’s being said. RIM’s in trouble, and without… Read More

    LG’s Quad-Core 2012 Flagship Leaks: The Poorly Code-Named X3

    Other than the LG Spectrum, LG didn’t have much to show off by way of phones at this year’s CES show. But that doesn’t mean that something special isn’t in the works. In fact, Pocketnow reports that LG’s 2012 flagship will run a Tegra 3 quad-core chipset and go by the name X3, at least for now. The phone likely won’t show up on store shelves until spring… Read More

    New RIM CEO: “I Don’t Think There Is A Drastic Change Needed”

    RIM’s new CEO Thorsten Heins has only been at the reigns for an evening, but he did a very “BlackBerry” job of presenting himself to the media this morning on his introductory media call. It felt a lot like the media calls of yore, with Balsillie and Lazaridis at the helm. Especially when Heins referred to Apple as “the other fruit company,” noting the two… Read More

  • Eytan Oren and Ok Go's Andy Ross Build InBloom

    OK Go And Eytan And The Embassy Rockers Talk About Their New App: inBloom

    Today two musicians sat down with me to have a chat: Andy Ross of OK Go, and Eytan Oren of Eytan and the Embassy. But we weren’t there to talk music. The dynamic duo actually built an iPhone app called InBloom — a Yelp-style application that offers up sustainable businesses and eco-friendly/dietary food retailers based on location — and sat down with me to tell us how it came… Read More

    What Happened To Kodak’s Moment?

    A Kodak Moment: a rare, one-time moment that is captured by a picture, or should have been captured by a picture Click. We all had them: times you reached for a camera to stop life for a second, to grab a memory. For decades, Kodak was the rock solid standard in photography and as the 131-year old company files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, “Kodak moments” may be all that’s left… Read More
