    Don’t ask us when or where or how we know this, but Samsung’s much-drooled-after F700 will be hitting Verizon (so, yes, a CDMA version, which is smaller we’ve been told), probably by year’s end.

  • Sleeptracker Pro tracks your sleep like a pro

    There’s a really bad, really old joke for kids about a dork who takes a ruler to bed to see how long he sleeps. (Geddit!?) We are living, though, in the whiz-bang World of Tomorrow, and instead of rulers, we have watches. The Sleeptracker watch tracks your sleep habits automagically and, when it decides you’re at the best point to wake up, well, it wakes you up. The Sleeptracker… Read More

  • Sidekick LX review

    I have a thing for the iPhone, if you couldn’t tell. But before I drank the Kool-Aid, I was a Sidekick man. What does it mean to be a Sidekick man? It means you give up a lot to get great email and instant messaging services and few, if any, third-party applications and very little freedom. Huh. Kind of like the iPhone, except without the messaging. So when I got the LX last week, I… Read More

  • Apple: 250,000 unlocked iPhones in the wild

    Just how many iPhone have been unlocked by pesky AT&T haters? Apple’s guessing a quarter of a million, which comes out to one out of every six of the 1.4 million that have been sold. If you ask me, that sounds low. I know not one, not two, but four unlockers, and they’re the majority of the iPhone owners I know. Granted, the group I run with tends to be a little geekier than… Read More

  • You so silly, Apple!

    Sony today released an update to its CyberShot line of cameras in the form of the T2.

What really makes the DSC-T2 worth the buck is definitely… Read More

  • Google buying Nielsen data

    Surely you’ve heard Nielsen at one time or another. The data mining company will start selling its information to Google very soon in a move that will help the search-giant target ads better. Some are arguing that Google is buying the data to tailor its upcoming YouTube ads better. That’s definitely a possibility. But Google is also aiming to target fans of television. Read More
