  • Samsung i7110 phone surfaces

    Photos for Samsung’s new i-series phone surface along with some details. Rumored details, that is; Samsung has not confirmed. For a rumor though, that’s a pretty nice photo. All this time I thought it was required for them to be blurry. The business class, Symbian-powered i7110 will incorporate multimedia functions on its QVGA display. An expansion slot for a microSD card will… Read More

  • Review: Soundcast OutCast Wireless Speaker

    Everyone wants to have parties outside, music thumping under the sun. It just feels classy. Plus you get to show your neighbors how many friends you have. Thing is, most boom boxes turn to breathless junk as soon as they’re outside and, between wiring and weather proofing, rigging up a high-quality speaker solution outdoors is a bit past the average consumer. The $699 OutCast speaker… Read More

  • The new Sonos controller… under water!

    I think what they’re trying to say in this video is that the new Sonos CR100 remote is completely water proof which means you can can leave it by the pool next to that bottle of Jack Daniels without worrying that your “house guests” might drop it into the deep end. Note: you can probably stop watching this at about the 2 minute mark. Read More

  • Images of Nokia Tube keep on comin'

    I’m not really sure what to make of these images. They’re clearly showcasing the Tube‘s Web browser, but images clearly don’t do anything to get us excited about this device. How about some video, dailymobile.se? Read More

  • Netflix charges more for Blu-ray discs; loves streaming

    Confirmation came Monday from Netflix that the movie rental giant is charging more for Blu-ray discs in a test program. No hard and fast pricing is available yet as the company is determining a pricing model. One thing for sure though, is that Blu-ray discs cost more, and Netflix is looking to pass along the extra charge. While Netflix is charging more for some DVD’s, they are charging… Read More

  • The (Highly Controversial) YouNoodle Startup Valuation Predictor Is Coming

    In February a well backed startup called YouNoodle said that they were developing a product that would accurately predict the future success of startups based on an analysis of the business and the founding team. Much like a credit rating tells creditors how likely an entity is to pay off debt, YouNoodle aimed to tell investors how likely they would be to see a return on their investment… Read More

  • Welcome to Macintosh: Fanbois on film

    If you really want to watch a movie about Apple and you happen to be near or around where these guys are showing their film, today is your lucky day. Welcome to Macintosh is a documentary produced by Rob Baca and Josh Rizzo and is about Mac-heads and the objects they love. It’s an independent film so they’re doing most of the work themselves, including trucking the movie to places… Read More

  • Doof re-launches – but that name…

    Casual social games startup doof has re-laiunched and now offers over 100 games, more social networking features, more competitions and a members club. We wrote about London-based Doof, which is backed by the The Money Gaming Corporation Ltd, last November. However, I see one problem for this startup’s international expansion. Exhorting people to “Become a Doofstar!”… Read More

  • Olympus and Panasonic shrink their SLR lenses

    The march of the DSLR is in full swing, but one thing I know has prevented some of my friends from buying one is the size and weight — especially of the decent lenses. Panasonic and Olympus hear their cries, and with the unveiling of the “Micro Four Thirds System” standard, they expect to be able to lighten and shrink their lenses, hopefully without compromising them optically.

That doesn’t mean it won’t change – but… Read More

  • Epson announces something other than printers (and they're really cool)

    Oh, Epson, it’s been a long time since I’ve paid any attention to you since I no longer own a printer anymore. But you certainly surprised me today with the announcement of the P-6000 and P-7000 multimedia photo viewer. A four-inch VGA LCD with a four-color filter system gives you the best damn viewable image possible with over 16.7 million colors and runs the Adobe RGB color gamut… Read More

    Photos have appeared of Motorola’s latest entry-level handset the VE240, rumors are its slated for release from no contract carriers MetroPCS and Cricket. Based on the photos (thanks Phonearena), we’re guessing the VE240 is a low-end, music-centered, candybar style handset. No news on the release date yet. But we’re guessing this isn’t part of the company’s… Read More

  • Motorola "Alexander" revealed, runs WinMo, so long Moto

    Motorola’s last gasp to stay afloat might as well have been a twinkie or something. An image of the “Alexander” has been leaked to BGR and it’s not looking good. Sure, the slider looks decent, but it’s said to be running Windows Mobile 6.1 and that’s just not acceptable. Previous rumors on specs haven’t changed much with the camera in the… Read More
