  • Wall Street Journal Reports Cingular Scores iPhone Tomorrow

    iChat Mobile rumor, though this is one we’ve heard before: the device will launch with Cingular. Now, we think Cingular has launched its wad with its new Treo 750, and that this is bullcrap. But it is the WSJ, and we’re not one to argue with anyone who features people as stipple drawings, so we’ll open another beer.

  • Apple Set to Launch New Airport Gear

    What good are all the 802.11n draft WiFi cards Apple has been hiding in its latest Macs if you don’t have a base station to go along with them?

That’s why we’re relatively certain that this week at MacWorld (if not tomorrow) we’ll be introduced… Read More

  • CES: Cobra Adds Red-Light Camera Detection to Line-Up

    First we had radar detectors, which cops hated. So the fuzz started using lasers to track our overzealous speed infractions.

So police started using these horrible cameras to take photos of our license plates as we sped through yellows, so they could dirty our mailboxes with citations. But finally… Read More

  • Plantronics Adds DSP to Bluetooth Headsets

    Bluetooth headsets suck. When wearing one, you look like a douche. I don’t care who you are, you will look like a douche. That does not mean that they are not getting better. There are times and places (private places) where using one is OK, and if you’re going to use one, having digital signal processing is better than not. See, it takes the noise coming in and out, and filters… Read More

  • CES, MacWorld Rumors and Such

    Rumors are fluttering about that tomorrow at the MacWord keynote Mr. Jobs wil announce some sort of partnership with Cingular.

We don’t know how or why. Read More
