• Facebook: Opening Up, But on Its Own Terms

    Last week we began talking with a independent programmer who ran into a bit of trouble with Facebook over a snippet of code he developed and published that allowed users to update their Facebook status without visiting the site. Christian Flickinger, who runs the blog Technologist for Hire, posted some PHP code here last April that took advantage of Facebook’s mobile service to perform… Read More

  • Justice Department Says ISPs Are Like The Post Office

    The U.S. Justice Department has taken a step toward you getting more charges from your ISP. In comments to the FCC today, the Department said imposing Net neutrality regulations could “could deter broadband Internet providers from upgrading and expanding their networks to reach more Americans.” Chief amongst their examples was that the one of the oldest data delivery systems, the U.S. Read More

  • HP's iPAQ 610 Video: Booring Sidney, Booring

    http://www.brightcove.com/playerswf HP’s Raj Bhavani shows off the iPAQ 610, which I’m posting here because I like the guys at notebooks.com and I am still stunned that HP thinks that any self-respecting road warrior would purchase a hunky iPAQ, even if it does come unlocked. I GUESS if your IT team passes these out you’d use them, but it has a 3-megapixel camera and no… Read More

  • Lulu Suing Hulu and We're Going Kuku!

    NBC and News Corp launched Hulu a few weeks ago and they’re already getting all kinds of static. First, their name translates to “cease and desist” in Swahili and how they get a C&D from Lulu, some other company that does some kind of digital stuff. Man! Can’t a rich media conglomerate get a break in this world? Read More

  • Amazon's Kindle and Google's Book Thing: More eBook Readers

    Please, companies, make a good, cheap eBook reader. I really don’t mind having it by my bedside if it cost maybe $100 and books cost about $25 or so, like books cost in “paper form” right now. However, by selling them for too much and then charging a premium for books AND assuming that we’re all trying to steal your eBooks and share them on the Interwebs, you’re… Read More

  • Vudu Video Serving Box Reviewed, Perhaps It Serves Up the Video?


    Vudu made quite a splash a little while ago when the announced a video device that hooks straight up to your TV and lets you buy video. While this device could be called a Media Center PC, a TiVo, or an Apple TV, it is in fact simply called the Vudu and is apparently easy to use and really glossy. Read More

  • Sony's Latest Alpha DSLR Officially Unveiled

The elusive widescreen touch iPod was finally released, the Fat Nano, as predicted, waddled in and the price drop on the iPhone that probably caused many of you to break something.

  • Toshiba Announces Two Hard Drives

    Today Toshiba announced it’s releasing two new 1.8-inch hard drives that are designed with portable media players in mind. There’s a 160GB flavor and an 80GB flavor. Normally, not exciting stuff.

  • Oh Noes! No More iPod Hi-Fi!

    I mean, yeah, you, I and half the world was expecting it to be gone soon, but still. The $349 niche sound system (which did sound good to Apple’s credit) is no longer available on Apple’s online store. Though not the most popular iPod-related product, it still was a bold move for Apple to release its own audio docking system. I’m sure if you scour your local Apple store, you… Read More

  • Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin Review


    When an iPod speaker costs $600, it had better be taken very seriously by its designers. Luckily, the new Zeppelin has high-end British speaker manufacturer Bowers & Wilkins (B&W) as its loving parent. It looks like it flew right off the cover of Led Zep I, except that it’s not in flames. This 2.1-channel iPod speaker/dock sings with all the power of an opera diva — and… Read More

    Mother of Pearl! Look what showed up on T-Mobile’s website last night. Seems the Blackberry Pearl’s new coloring is going to be quite the hit with the ‘Mo. You can now get the Pearl in black, white, red, gold, and blue. I just hope they don’t drag this phase out too long. Remember how long they milked the Sidekick II for?? T-Mobile’s “String of… Read More

  • The Futurist: Analyzing Apple's Announcements

    Another day, another Apple announcement. Fortunately, this was no “Lets take another look at Leopard” letdown. As far as product unveilings go, this one was absolutely a doozy. We saw them (almost) completely revamp the entire iPod line, add a new (but still familiar) face to the mix, and bring frowns to the faces of Sony and HP, who had the misfortune of announcing products on… Read More
