  • Rumor dissolved: Samsung i900 will not be running WinMo


    In case you don’t remember what Croix looks like. If our informant is to be believed and I’m most certain that he/she/it knows what he/she/it is talking about so you, reader, better believe what he/she/it told us. The i900 will NOT be running Windows Mobile, rather, it will have Samsung’s Croix UI (like the F700, Armani, F490), which makes me feel much better about things. Read More

  • iPhone SDK app key leaked?

    18 84 58 A6 D1 50 34 DF E3 86 F2 3B 61 D4 37 74 What does it all mean? In a Lost-esque move hackers have released the iPhone SDK key which means, potentially, you can “sign” your homebrew apps and have them show up on the iPhone as official applications. Doesn’t help us much right now, but who knows. Maybe it was Penny’s boat! Rumors: iPhone Application Key… Read More

  • Face recognition technology identifies John Travolta 100% of the time


    Or so they say. What they’re doing is using multiple pictures of the same terrorist/innocent civilian to create a sort of average face, which in this case looks like you mapped Travolta onto one of the guys in Quake. Wow, he really does look like a Quake guy there. They claim that this eliminates the confounding factors of beards, smiles, Groucho Marx glasses, and so on and creates an… Read More

  • "Missing" non-AT&T iPhones cost Apple $300+ million

    I’m a little skeptical regarding these numbers but some fancy-pants financial types are estimating a $300-$500 million loss in revenue due to unlocked, non-AT&T iPhone sales. This presumes there are about 1 million units out there unlocked and unaccounted for, something I find hard to believe. If Apple were to somehow stop the sale of unlocked iPhones (by forcing customers to… Read More

  • ATI's Radeon HD 3800 series hits; HD 3870 X2 slays NVIDIA 8800 Ultra


    Looks like Radeons are competitive again. For a whole year, ATI and their owner/partner AMD have lagged behind the industry leaders NVIDIA and Intel in GPU and CPU performance. Well, it looks like ATI has finally managed to come out on top (again), although it’s entirely possible that their competitors will drop something hot in the next few weeks as well. The 3800 series is their… Read More

  • Rumor: 120GB or 160GB PS3 on its way, 80GB on its way out

    It seems as though AT’s mole has the skinny on the recent mumblings of Sony discontinuing the 80GB model, which are, apparently, true and that a 120GB or 160GB would soon replace it. It’s also being said that prices will remain the same. A few more tidbits were revealed as well. The Spiderman 3 pack-in will disappear as well once the 80GB unit is gone. In order to maintain a… Read More

There’s been plenty of international consternation over the country’s continued whaling policies but Japan, from what I’ve read, hasn’t been particularly cooperative. That’s where the tech comes in.

  • Is Apple skimming dough off AppleTV rentals to cover the price drop?

    Everyone was happy to hear that the AppleTV was losing a bit of cost, as it was hard to justify getting one before with the features it offered. Now, however, it’s a much better deal (some disagree) and even my skeptical self is tempted. But whence this discount? The margins are as thin as the skin on my teeth. Computerworld speculates that since the discount did not extend to the UK… Read More
