• Palm's Response To Foleo Delay: Still Shipping On Time

    Somewhat calming news after my tantrum the other day; Palm says that the Foleo will still launch “this summer” and that it hasn’t missed the original shipping date yet. So if Palm is to be taken at its word, rumors of the Foleo shipping on August 22nd were false, as were rumors of it being delayed. Read More

    The last time Nintedo was in NYC. Did you know that that Nintendo is opening up a huge, badass office at 445 Park Ave. in New York on October 1? Neither did we, but we just got a hot tip that says it’s so. What is it Nintendo could be up to in NYC? The image above gives us a place to start our brains.

  • BGR: BB P2 on Thxgvng?

    We loooooove Black Friday. It’s our favorite day of the year. It’s that day after Thanksgiving in the USA when the holiday shopping stuff really ramps up. It’s the day of the amazing door-buster specials and long lines and mall corndogs and tired, cranky sales clerks and cheap HDTVs and Jagermeister. It’s also the day, from what BGR hears, that Crackberry addicts can… Read More

  • GPS vs. Cellular GPS: Head-To-Head at Laptop

    GPS units are cool toys. Don’t get me wrong, they’re serious devices for some people. I wish to god my cab drivers used them. But for the most part, they’re not essential: we’ve survived thousands of years without them, so it’s time to admit that they’re a convenience. Read More

  • Extra $3G Lying Around? You Could Have an Unlocked iPhone!

    We’re trying hard not to make this AppleGear today, but there’s a lot going on, so screw it, we’re giving it to you. We know a 17 year old kid made up a software unlock for the iPhone, with the help of others, that allows it to work with any GSM carrier. He’s using his with T-Mobile, at least until Apple sues him into oblivion so he can’t afford the bill. But… Read More

  • No Linux For You: Pirate Must Get Comfy With Windows

    Five months in prison for downloading Star Wars Episode III — that seems a little harsh, doesn’t it?

  • Vonage Sued By SunRocket For Use Of Customer List

    After SunRocket abruptly closed up shop a little over a month ago, there was a mad-dash by other VOIP providers to scoop up some 200,000 stranded customers. Not too surprisingly, Vonage was one of those providers. According to Sherwood Partners, the company in charge of selling off SunRocket’s assets, Vonage got a hold of and has been using one of SunRocket’s customer… Read More

  • Microsoft Cans Linux FUD Site, Launches Windows Server Site

    Way back in the day, when Linux wasn’t much of a desktop threat, Microsoft launched a site called “Get the Facts” that featured a 2002 study comparing the cost of ownership of Linux versus Windows. The new site, which is a bit less combative, compares Windows Server to Linux and Unix and offers a few case studies — nothing as nasty as hiring analysts to shill for the… Read More

    Note: Fish is not real Kiplinger, the personal finance magazine, just dropped a red-hot review of the Apple “iPhone,” a new phone from an up-and-coming hardware company. It might be Asia-only, but they pulled a Fat Joe on this thing, saying it’s the best phone money can buy. Read More

  • Creative Travelsound i50: When You Shuffle Isn't Big Enough

    The TravelSound iS0 is an odd Shuffle speaker dock that basically makes the Shuffle into a something as big as an iPod. Why? I don’t know but does seem to offer us a nice tall glass of WTF. It’s Asia-only right now — about $69 — and probably won’t hit our shores for a long, long time, if ever. Creative Travelsound i50 speaker for the iPod Shuffle [Newlaunches] Read More

  • Sony Comments on Low PS3 Sales, Laughs a Little, Cries a Little


    Matt Richtel wrote a quick piece on Sony’s crowing — then cowering — this week as the NPD sales numbers placed the PS3 far below 360 and Wii. Dave Karraker, the Sony spokesman who predicted the PS3 would overtake the 360, told me that: (1) He was only wrong by a bit, and (2) NPD doesn’t provide an exact count but estimates some portions of the market and (3) No, he… Read More
