    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

  • 5,000 BlackBerry PlayBooks Stolen From A Truck Stop

    5,000 BlackBerry PlayBooks Stolen From A Truck Stop

    Wow! They must be breaking mirrors, opening umbrellas and walking under ladders over at RIM because this is starting to get unbelievable. A big rig, carrying around $1.7 million worth of BlackBerry PlayBooks, was stolen in Indiana. The PlayBook has been a rough product for the Waterloo-based company. While RIM did quite a bit right with the little tab, lack of native email and calendar… Read More

  • Brick-And-Mortar Retailers Want You To Boycott Amazon

    Brick-And-Mortar Retailers Want You To Boycott Amazon

    Amazon recently built a price-check app that has left many brick-and-mortar retailers frustrated. The idea isn’t revolutionary at all — many companies use price-checking as a way to beat the competition at the point of purchase — but with Amazon being an online presence, the idea becomes much more cut-throat. That said, retailers are asking customers to boycott Amazon as the… Read More

  • Google Doles Out Googlicious Galaxy Nexii To Employees

    Google Doles Out Googlicious Galaxy Nexii To Employees

    ‘Tis the season of giving, and who better to get in the holiday spirit than employers (hint, hint!)? Google is certainly in a generous mood, as they’ve begun hooking up employees with a special edition Galaxy Nexus. Software engineer Edu Pereda of Google’s Zurich offices posted a gallery of the phone in all its Googlified glory. Read More

  • NYPD Busts 141 Merchants For Selling Stolen Apple Goods

    NYPD Busts 141 Merchants For Selling Stolen Apple Goods

    New York City is possibly the most dangerous place to take your new iPhone or iPad. Grand larcenies have increased this year in the Big Apple, which NYPD spokesman Paul Browne attributes to criminal’s obsession with stealing handheld devices. But after a sting operation that went down between Tuesday and yesterday, things might be a bit safer in the city that never sleeps. Read More

  • 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

    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)

    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

    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

    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
