• LG Voyager owner's help needed

    I don’t have access to a Voyager at the moment and I’m not sure if this was apart of the firmware upgrade that went out last month. Can any Voyager owners comment? K. Thx. 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

  • What to expect from Google Earth

    http://www.collegehumor.com/moogaloop/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=1799272&fullscreen=1 Don’t think this won’t/can’t happen. Google is like a batshit crazy ex-girlfriend. It will find a way and you’ll wake up one morning with IT standing over you all wide-eyed and frothing at the mouth. 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

  • Redux Discovers Friends So You Don't Have To

    You’re probably familiar with the “recommended items” lists on sites like Amazon or Barnes and Noble. They help discover things you’ll probably like based on what you buy and what you view. Redux founder Darian Shirazi wants to apply the same power of discovery to growing communities of people online. The site is launching into beta today. This site is part social… Read More

  • Hi-tech planes used to combat unlawful whaling

    [photopress:whalingrobot.jpg,full,center] What is it with Japan and whaling? 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. Australia has deployed an AirBus A319 that’s loaded with specialized imaging and… Read More

  • 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

  • The Hype Machine Releases 2007 Music Blog Zeitgeist

    The Hype Machine is a great music blog aggregator that we’ve somehow failed to write about until now. The site continuously collects material, including reviews and songs, from the best music blogs on the net. Comparisons can be drawn to Techmeme, which curates a selection of the best tech news articles from the multitude published each day. The Hype Machine does the same for music… Read More

  • Qtrax Really Blows Its Launch

    This is being covered to death elsewhere, so I won’t spend too much time on it. But if a startup is going to spend nearly $1 million announcing a new digital music service claiming more than 25 million free legal song downloads, it might want to coordinate its announcement with the music labels it is supposedly partnering with. In what may be the dumbest business move of the year so… Read More

  • HD DVD is dead, says Gartner

    Toshi might think that spending $3 million on a Super Bowl ad will help boost profits and possibly salvage what’s left to prolong the war, but that’s exactly what Gartner means when they refer to recent actions by Toshiba as “useless resistance.” It’s things like this and the recent price cuts that are prolonging the inevitable. The death of HD DVD. Gartner… Read More

  • Sony A300 and A350 pics leaked


    Some enterprising site-digger has gotten the above pictures of the Sony Alphas. The A300, you’ll notice, has a swivel LCD and 10.2 megapixels. The A350 has 14.2 megapixels and, I’m going to guess, the swivel screen as well. Looks like there’s a button for Live-View as well. Cheers to the site-troller who found these. The front view shots look nearly identical however, I… Read More

  • Asus Eee lookalike: Priced $50 more, big hand added

    Here’s an idea. Take a 2GB Asus Eee PC, change almost nothing, and add $50 to the price tag. That’s what Cybertron’s done with its “new” line of Mini-PC computers. For $349, you’ll get a 900Mhz Celeron M processor, 512MB or RAM, 7-inch 800×400 screen, 2GB flash drive, and everything else the Eee PC has. The operating system even looks the same, if not… Read More

    [photopress:pirate_bay_logo.jpg,full,right]The captains of the Pirate Bay BitTorrent site will be formally charged with conspiracy to break copyright law.
