  • Verizon Customers Could Get Blackberry 8830 on Memorial Day

    I’m tempted to drop T-Mobile as my service provider and switch to Sprint or Verizon because their respective networks blow T-Mo out of the water. EDGE can bite me; EVDO is where it’s at, folks.

  • The Futurist: The Impending Liberation Of Mobile Phone Designs

    Much of a phone’s form factor is a result of the need for the device to, above all else, work as a phone. That is, it must be held against your face. Of course, this is changing. The past few years have seen Bluetooth headsets spread from middle managers to nightclubs. In a few years, the idea of actually talking directly into your phone will be as archaic as a rotary dial. That’s… Read More

  • Gmail Ups Attachment Size Limit

    One of the reasons why e-mail still drives me nuts sometimes is the limit on file-attachment size. You’d think a service like Gmail would allow unlimited attachments right off the bat, right? Well Gmail doesn’t, though now it’s now offering a 20MB size limitation on all e-mails. This means you can start sending your friends those pesky 320kbps-encoded MP3s that peak… Read More

  • Next-Gen Format Copying May Become Legal

    Though Blu-Ray and HD-DVD are readily available in a store near you, the cost for either format isn’t cheap.
