• MSI Wind delayed two weeks: Equipped with three-cell battery on the 27th, six-cell coming in July

    The MSI Wind has been delayed by a couple weeks. It was supposed to be available yesterday, and now MSI’s site pegs the shipping date at June 27th.

  • Adobe Breakthrough! Flash Working on the iPhone . . . In The Labs, On An Emulator, Oh Well

    From CrunchGear’s Nicholas Deleon: Adobe already has a version of Flash for the iPhone running on emulation software, and would, fingers crossed, be able to bring that over to the phone itself if Apple allowed it.
