• Qualcomm likes Windows Mobile 7 for tiny laptops

    Qualcomm is betting that its Snapdragon chipset (see a hands-on we did at CTIA) will taste better with Windows Mobile 7, especially when it comes to tiny notebooks. The company is looking to make a move into the inexpensive laptop arena with the added twist of having the devices run Windows Mobile 7 instead of Linux or Windows XP/Vista. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset, which includes a… Read More

  • 4 more Sony Ericsson demo videos released

    Jeez – there has been a pretty much constant flow of Sony Ericsson demo videos over the past few days. First the Paris, then the BeiBei, and now demos for the W760, W980, G700, and G900 have hit YouTube. These new ones aren’t quite as exciting as the others, as they’ve already been formally announced — but it’s still nice to see them in action. Sony Ericsson… Read More

  • Sony could release "OpenBook" very soon

    Contract OEM “leaked” a Sony version of Via’s “open source” laptop running a 1.6GHz C7-M processor. It seems that IDG walked up to one of their laptops at WiMax Expo in Taipei and opened the system properties. A check of the laptop’s properties confirmed the laptop is based on a 1.6GHz C7-M processor from Via and listed Sony as the manufacturer. When the… Read More

  • OiNK: Six were arrested last week, shared 'advance' music

    More information has emerged on the OiNK-related arrests of last week. (Please don’t call it “oinkgate;” The “gate” suffix is banned here.) A total of six people were arrested in Cleveland (in the UK), all of them for sharing “pre-release” albums. All those ADVANCEs you downloaded? They range in age from 19 to 33. Oh, boy, this is getting… Read More

  • Rumor: HTC being acquired by Sony Ericsson [Update]

    The Swedes are a bit confusing, but there’s a rumor going ’round that Sony Ericsson is busy acquiring HTC. Basically, Elektrnikiasfa;sfk;ajs;fjkasfasf called SE who said they were busy merging. Some how Palm is in the mix as well. We’ll get to the bottom of this. Update: I just heard back from HTC and the high level execs said there was no truth to the… Read More

The re-release includes maps from all those map packs and little extras from Gears of War 2. June 24, $40 for the Xbox 360 version, $30 for the PC.

  • GPS all but confirmed for 3G iPhone

    Broadcom seems to have been awarded the contract to supply Apple’s 3G iPhone with GPS, says Om Malik. It’s sort of a given at this point and would probably be a dealbreaker for those looking to upgrade or jump onto the bandwagon if the 3G iPhone were sans GPS. If the only upgrade hardware-wise to the iPhone was 3G would you do it? Read More

  • Turn your iPod Touch into a mini iMac with the iClooly

    On June 7th, Rockridgesound will roll out a new aluminum-made stand for the iPod Touch on the Japanese market. The MSRP for the so-called iClooly is $48.

  • Casio watch can time you, charge itself as you plummet to the earth

    The Casio Oceanus OCWM800TBA-1A purports to be the first “atomic solar powered” chronograph which really isn’t saying much. Most atomic watches are world timers dedicated to keeping you on schedule. Adding an analog chronograph, as opposed to a digital one that just shows numbers on a screen, to something like this is akin to adding leather seats to a dump truck — it… Read More

  • Two Nokia Supernova phones leaked

    It seems like Nokia is pretty dedicated to their new female-focused Supernova line. The super shiny Nokia 7310 Supernova trickled out to parts of the Asian market over the weekend, and now details on two more Supernova handsets have leaked out. The model numbers rumored to be tied to these S40 handsets are bit dubious as one has already been used by Nokia in the past, but they’re… Read More

  • GreenNote Offers More Peer-to-Peer Loans To Tackle the College Funding Gap

    If you are having trouble paying for college, maybe you can hit up your social network for a loan. That’s the idea behind GreenNote, another peer-to-peer lending startup that is launching this week. (The site is still going through load testing, but should be up fully by Wednesday). Prosper, Zopa, and Lending Club (which is under regulatory scrutiny) already offer general P2P loans… Read More

  • More details about the Atom-based Asus Eee 901

    The impending Eee 901 has been spotted at the WiMax Expo in Taipei and is expected to be formally announced and launched tomorrow. We saw some early details a couple of weeks ago, but here’s some more information. IDG News is reporting that the Eee PC 901 will have a 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, and will ship with a 12GB SSD and Windows XP or with a 20GB SSD and Linux, depending… Read More

  • GPhone delayed till 2009

    *gasp* TheStreet has word from a source familiar with the situation that the GPhone won’t be released in time for the holiday shopping season after all. That’s really all the source had to say about the matter. Oh well. There are other Android handsets set to launch this year, which I’m assuming won’t be affected by this news/rumor and I’m looking forward to… Read More

  • Starbucks to give away free Wi-Fi tomorrow

    Starbucks will give away Wi-Fi starting tomorrow, June 3. Or: When you register your Starbucks Card and use it at least once a month, you’ll receive two consecutive hours a day of complimentary Wi-Fi, courtesy of AT&T. Not much to complain about here, really. Buy an elitist latte once in a while, and check the headlines. Like, say, that Mourinho is officially at Inter Milan. Read More

  • Kevin Rose, iPhone prognosteekater

    http://seesmic.com/Standalone.swf?video=0F7xc810bb Nigh on every year, come WWDC time, we all down at the farm get a visit from Kevin Rose. This elusive fella can usually be found rock climbing in Palo Alto but by garm if he ain’t also a perfect iPhone prognosticator. Sure the news and city folks come into town ever year to see if he foretells a $500 iPhone 3G in the next week or so, but… Read More

  • Rumors continue to swirl around Netflix, Microsoft partnership

    I suspect that the analysts over at Wedbush Morgan Securities are either smoking crack or that they’ve been living under a rock somewhere for the last six months. The IB had this to say about the Netflix, Microsoft deal. “As we have speculated in the past, we believe that one of Netflix’s partners is Microsoft. We arrive at this conclusion based upon Netflix management… Read More

    Wakoopa, the application monitoring service that we’ve described as a Last.fm for desktop apps, has raised $1 million in a funding round led by Big Bang Ventures and HENQ Invest. Wakoopa monitors the amount of time each application is open on a user’s desktop (or iPhone), and uses the aggregated data to create a social network.

  • iPhone heads to Spain: June 18

    The 3G iPhone will be available in Spain on Telefónica’s Movistar. No date has officially been announced, but Giz says June 18 is the most likely. Spain, who have already crashed out of Euro 2008, was one of the last Western countries without Apple’s cellphone. Countries without the iPhone now include Japan, Russia and China. June 9, everyone.

  • Skydeck Goes Social And Releases APIs (700 Invites)

    In a New York Times Op-Ed last December, Tim O’Reilly fantasized: Imagine, for a moment, that Verizon were to think like Google or Amazon. It could give you access to your entire call history, every phone call you have sent or received, not just your last 10 phone calls. It might build an address book for you based on everyone you had ever talked to, with top results for the numbers you… Read More
