  • Facebook Has LinkedIn In Their Crosshairs

    Facebook may be used for professional networking (particularly in Silicon Valley), but it sure isn’t set up to be. People’s profiles are all about their dating status, pictures, videos and other very personal information.

    Ok, every conversation I have with my leaks at the Zune team at Microsoft in the last month have gone like this: Matt: Dude, tell me something about the Zunephone. Leak: What Zunephone?

  • Water-powered phones by 2010?

    New development on the liquid-powered battery front. Samsung’s apparently "developed a micro-fuel cell and hydrogen generator that runs on H20."

After all is said and done, you’ve got about three watts of power. That’s enough… Read More
