• Boring Edition: Microsoft lets loose two new mice


    I’m trying so hard not to fall asleep on my keyboard while writing this, but Microsoft has updated their mice line with the Wireless Laser Mouse 6000, pictured, and 7000 (looks the same, but comes in black). They’re both super boring, but somebody out there has a mouse fetish. I think it’s Devin. Both models have been designed with ergonomics in mind. The 7000 and 6000… Read More

  • InterOffice takes up where the AirMail left off

  • FBI wants to see your tramp stamp

    Are you ready to show the FBI that tattoo you got in Key West when after you broke up with Celia and decided to go on a tear and get a tattoo disparaging both Celia and her mom? I sure don’t!

  • Sony wants you to upgrade your own damn PS3 HDD


    In the last couple of weeks there have been rumors that Sony will announce a 120GB version of the PS3 and they’ve denied those rumors every time. I believe the HDD upgrade is imminent and in the pipe, but a recent interview with SCE Australia and NZ’s managing director Michael Ephraim has me scratching my head. He actually wants us to upgrade the HDD on the PS3 ourselves and to… Read More

  • Why fight? Studios releasing on HD DVD and Blu-Ray

    It was bound to happen: the major studios are releasing videos in both formats and just letting the market shake things out — mostly in the direction of hybrid players. Ultimately, I think the question will become moot but until then, folks like Warner Bros (I Am Legend) and Universal (Charlie Wilson’s War) will release in both formats. I think the biggest decider will be… Read More

  • Repairs begin on cut undersea cables

    John is pretty hopped up on this stuff, so I’ll continue the trend. The undersea cables that were cut last week will, hopefully, soon be back up and running.

FLAG Telecom, an Indian-owned cable network operator released this statement: “FLAG repair team is operating in… Read More

  • Apple Store is down: battle stations, everyone

    It is Tuesday and we’ve been hearing mumblings about an update to the MacBook Pro line. I’m not too sure what else it could, but I doubt it’s going to be anything mind blowing. I guess I’ll just throw it out there as I’m sure some of you might think it’s a 16GB iPhone. The 16GB Touch has been around long enough. Looks like all country stores are up, but ours. Read More

  • Fring Adds File-Swapping To Its Mobile VoIP App
