• Rumor: 3G, 16GB iPhone Set To Launch In November

    It looks like I won’t be eating my hat anytime soon if this purported ad from T-Mobile Germany is legit. Typically an ad like this wouldn’t be worth the time to report because we know the iPhone will be launched in Europe by the end of the year, but take a gander and you’ll notice two things of interest. Again, if this ad is legit then the Europeans will be getting an iPhone… Read More

  • Zune 2 Is Coming?

    It’s time to throw some Microsoft rumors around now that Apple has released the new iPod. According to the above photo sent to Zunearama by a GameCrazy employee, M$ could possibly be prepping the Zune 2 for launch. The accessories found on this price sheet have “V2″ marked on them and now the speculation can begin over whether or not this means the Zune 2 is coming. I, for… Read More

  • Bose SoundDock Portable Review

    It’s just about universally agreed that the original Bose SoundDock was and still is one of the best iPod speakers on the market. My big gripe with it was always that it just isn’t truly portable because you have to plug it in. But no longer. The SoundDock Portable is surprisingly similar to the AC-only version in both sound and power; it’s the loudest and best-sounding thing… Read More

  • Motorola To Spread Self Thin, Promises New Products Next Month


    Over at the Times, they’re reporting that, in a rare admission of defeat, Motorola is acknowledging a deep slump stemming from their oft-reported inability to follow-up on the ridiculous success of a certain ubiquitous handset. Their response: “introducing a series of innovative new cellphones rather than a ‘one-hit wonder’ like the RAZR.” Read More

  • HotSwap Launches – Video Classifieds

  • Blue Raven Maestro 1070 Review


    Apple’s ill-received iPod Hi-Fi has been discontinued just in time for the folks at Blue Raven to copy it. The Maestro 1070 iPod speaker/dock is less expensive than the Hi-Fi was, and it’s not as well crafted, but it still sounds pretty good for a $199 iPod speaker. And at least they had the good taste to give you the option of a glossy black finish instead of the played out… Read More

  • Internet People

  • Skype Phishing Scam

    Like most people, I thought I’d seen everything in terms of phishing scams. Paypal and bank phishing emails are a regular occurrence in most people’s inboxes. Then I received this: Why in the world would a scammer want my Skype details? I have about $12 AUD in credit, which I suppose could be used to make calls, but it hardly seems worth the effort. Notably, Gmail did not pick… Read More

  • Newly Found Mineral In Russia Absorbs Radiation Like I Absorb Old 'The King Of Queens' Episodes (Really Well)

    Is this a gadget? No. Will people who like gadgets find it interesting? I hope so. I did. Scientists in Middle-of-Nyet, Russia have discovered a mineral that’s capable of absorbing radioactivity present in liquid nuclear waste. It’s called 27-4 for lack of an official name. Read More

  • Shot Of Wii Wheel For Sale In The Wild

However, I just got back from Europe, where I happened to spot that very product for sale in an electronics store within the Amsterdam airport for 20 Euros, or about $26. Check it out. And if your first thought is “Oh… Read More

  • Video: Proof That iPhoneSIMFree Unlocks The iPhone

    See the upper left hand corner of this photo, folks? It says T-Mobile. Cool, no? I like T-Mobile more than I like AT&T. That’s just me, though. Gizmodo has video of iPhoneSIMFree’s software at work. It looks real easy, too. Like a baby could do it if you pushed the aforementioned baby’s little hand down on a couple of buttons every now and again. The whole process takes… Read More

  • PlayStation 3 Backwards Compatibility Web Page

    Admittedly, I’m a Wii man. I’m in my late twenties so I no longer have the dexterity required to operate a controller with dozens of buttons like you whippersnappers do. The few times I’ve seen the PS3 in action, though, I’ve been prone to experiencing a little drool buildup in the area of the bottom of my mouth between where my tongue ends and my teeth begin. It looks… Read More
