    iPhone 4S Beats Out Lumia 800 In Benchmark Testing (Video)

    Have you been wondering which mobile browser is the fastest of late? It would be an understandable thing to pontificate, seeing that Android takes the cake when it comes to LTE support, iOS has the class-leading dual-core A5 chip on its side, and Windows Phone’s IE mobile browser is basically a beast. It’s a worthwhile question, to say the least. Luckily MyNokiablog noticed a… Read More

    Let The Race Begin: Google Launches Elections Hub

    A new year is always exciting. A Clean slate. But once every four years, something very important comes into play: a presidential election. This year, all of your election information won’t be any more readily available than it is right here, on the interwebs, and Google is set to be your go-to place to keep up with them. Today via the Official Google Blog, the search giant has… Read More

  • Samsung’s DV300F Dual-View Camera Brings WiFi Into The Mix

    Samsung’s DV300F Dual-View Camera Brings WiFi Into The Mix

    Many of you may remember that I was straight-up infatuated with Samsung’s MV800 point-and-shoot. And why wouldn’t I be? It’s absolutely the best point-and-shoot if your favorite subject to shoot happens to be yourself. While Samsung’s latest camera isn’t quite as narcissistic, the new DV300F announced today still has a pretty awesome trick up its sleeve. Read More

  • Sony Slashes Tablet S Price By $100

    Sony Slashes Tablet S Price By $100

    Apple’s iPad still dominates the tablet market, and it would seem that competing tab makers are realizing how tough it is to go head-to-head with Apple’s tablet. The latest proof: Sony has just slashed $100 off of the price of its Tablet S. In other words, the 32GB Tablet S just went from $600 to $500, while the 16GB model has dropped from $500 to $400.

    comScore: Apple Grows Mobile Marketshare From 9.8% To 11.2%, But Samsung’s Still Top OEM

    comScore has just released its latest numbers regarding the mobile landscape here in the U.S., finding that Samsung is still the top OEM with a 25.6 percent marketshare, up just .3 percentage points from the three month period ending in August. Meanwhile, Apple’s price drop on the iPhone 4 along with the introduction of the iPhone 4S has taken its share of the market from 9.8 percent… Read More

  • LTE-Capable Windows Phones Should Ship In The First Half Of 2012

    LTE-Capable Windows Phones Should Ship In The First Half Of 2012

    There are a lot of naysayers out there when it comes to the Windows Phone platform, but as Robin pointed out a couple of days ago many haven’t really given the OS a fighting chance. Some of it has to do with the fact that people often equate cost with quality, and most Windows phones are (at the moment) rather inexpensive. But Redmond apparently has plans to get some higher-end devices… Read More

  • Is Verizon Joking? Paying Online/By Phone Will Soon Cost You An Extra $2

    Is Verizon Joking? Paying Online/By Phone Will Soon Cost You An Extra $2

    Yesterday Droid-Life obtained a leaked internal document from Verizon that had a surprisingly annoying little tidbit within: “Beginning 1/15/12, there is a $2 ‘convenience fee’ for making a credit or debit card bill payment online or via call-in channels.” Sometimes leaks are faked or forged, and I hoped against hope that this particular leak was a load of malarkey.

  • Samsung Ships 1 Million Galaxy Note Phablets

    Samsung Ships 1 Million Galaxy Note Phablets

    When we first heard about Samsung’s 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, we didn’t really know what to do with it. Is it a phone? Is it a tablet? Oh, look! A stylus! It was weird. But apparently people like weird, as Samsung is now reporting that it’s shipped over 1 million Galaxy Note phablets globally. The device launched back in September, and devices shipped is normally a higher… Read More

  • Rumor: Apple Will Debut Two iPads Next Month, Retina Displays In Tow (Update)

    Rumor: Apple Will Debut Two iPads Next Month, Retina Displays In Tow (Update)

    The Apple rumor mill never takes a break, even during the holidays. In the past months we’ve heard two very specific allegations concerning the iPad — both out of Digitimes — focused on a smaller sized Apple tab at 8.75 inches and a release date of early 2012. As Devin explained so well, the notion of a smaller iPad out of Cupertino is a bit hard to believe. It would mean… Read More

It’s a new RSS reader that just launched on Christmas and it’s… Read More

  • Kindle Accessory Maker Files Suit Against Amazon

    Kindle Accessory Maker Files Suit Against Amazon

    M-Edge, a small Maryland-based company responsible for many popular Kindle cases, last week filed suit against Amazon. According to the Wall Street Journal, M-Edge claims that Amazon has repeatedly tried to change the terms of a contract put into place all the way back in 2009, and has bullied the accessory maker each time it fights back. In the original contract, Amazon was to receive a… Read More

    The iPhone 4S Is Finally Cleared For Launch In Mainland China

    Here in the States we’ve been chatting it up with Siri on the iPhone 4S for months, but the folks over in mainland China — the biggest mobile market in the world, mind you — have yet to hear that 42 is the meaning of life. The 4S launched in Hong Kong just last month, and since then we’ve heard that it would show up on the mainland in December. People’s Daily is… Read More

  • ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas (Revisited)

    ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas (Revisited)

    ‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
    Not an ultrabook was whirring, not a touchpad nor mouse.
    The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
    With hopes they were stuffed with Thunderbolt MacBook Airs. The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
    While visions of Galaxy Tabs danced in their heads.
    And ma in her ‘kerchief, and I with my apps,
    Had… Read More

  • Speaking Of Christmas Miracles… This Guy Can Fly (Almost)

    Speaking Of Christmas Miracles… This Guy Can Fly (Almost)

    If you could have one superpower, what would it be? Mind control would be my answer (I hope to be an evil genius when I grow up). But it seems the most popular answer to that question is the ability to fly. Jarnos Smeets, a mechanical engineer from the Netherlands, is working really hard to make that a reality. How, you ask? Well, he’s building real-life wings (just like the wings on… Read More

  • LogMeIn Remote Control iOS App Goes Freemium

    LogMeIn Remote Control iOS App Goes Freemium

    Users of LogMeIn’s Ignition are in for a pleasant surprise this holiday season. The once paid — and quite expensive — app is now migrating to a freemium model. That said, users who paid for Ignition won’t have to cough up the dough for a LogMeIn Pro subscription, but they will get the added premium features including HD remote control (and HD streaming) from their… Read More

  • Stream TV Networks Introduces Ultra-D: Glasses-Free 3D Conversion Tech

    Stream TV Networks Introduces Ultra-D: Glasses-Free 3D Conversion Tech

    The biggest hindrance to consumer adoption of 3D technology thus far has been a lack of content, and price, of course. While I can’t vouch for their price tags quite yet, it would seem that Stream TV Networks has come up with some new 3D technology that could make that whole limited content thing much less of an issue.

    Textaholics Rejoice! Swype Beta Taps Dragon Dictation

    Textaholics, this one’s for you. Swype — the Android-flavored keyboard that lets you type (or swype, rather) faster than you ever thought possible — has a present for you this holiday season. With Siri on the iPhone 4S, voice control apps are sprouting up faster than you can ask Siri about the meaning of life. Voice is where we’re headed and there’s nothing… Read More

  • Steve Jobs Memorial Statue Unveiled In Budapest

    Steve Jobs Memorial Statue Unveiled In Budapest

    While memorials of all kinds and sizes have been presented since his death, the world’s first statue of the late Steve Jobs has today been unveiled in Budapest, Hungary. It’s made completely of bronze and stands nearby the entrance of architectural software maker Graphisoft’s headquarters. Jobs seems to be presenting a new product on stage, or possibly waving as he was known… Read More

  • Apple Takes One Small Step Against HTC, One Giant Leap Against Android

    Apple Takes One Small Step Against HTC, One Giant Leap Against Android

    Apple has been duking it out with Android manufacturers for the past couple years, and very few are safe. Samsung has already suffered some big losses with the banning of its Galaxy Tab in Germany and Australia. HTC, however, has remained mostly safe from Apple’s wrath. In July the Taiwanese manufacturer had a close call, as Administrative Law Judge Carl Charneski ruled that HTC was… Read More
