• Sprint updates drivers for Mac OS X

    I sure hope this works because I haven’t been able to use one of my Sprint dongles for months. Sprint has updated their drivers for Novatel EV-DO Rev. A devices (S720, U720, EX720 and U727) to play nice with Leopard and its WWAN framework. Sprint is even allowing your dongles to be used as GPS devices free of charge. High five, Sprint. Version 2.0 is a hefty 12MB and I hope it’s… Read More

  • Asus Eee PC gets bedazzled


    Not really bedazzled, but I was just listening to Dane Cook and he was talking about his sisters bedazzling his jean jackets when he was a kid. Umm. Ok. Awkward. Asus is looking to cash in on the popularity of the Eee with a handful of accessories for the new year. Whatever shade of vomit you decide on for your Eee, if you don’t have one, can be accompanied by a mouse with the same shade. Read More

  • Verizon Expects over 300 Million Messages Today and Tonight

  • XBL crapping out


    I haven’t been playing much in the last week or so, but I know there were some issues and everything seemed to have been resolved over the weeekend. I remember having difficulty signing in and gave up after a couple attempts. I thought it was just my network connection. But I guess not. Anyone still having problems with XBL? What should MS do to make this up to us? Is the Zune… Read More

  • LG.Philips announces multiple LCDs ahead of CES

    I’m not really looking forward to CES next week, but LG.Philips has me frothing with the announcement of multiple LCDs ranging from 32- to 84-inches with multi-touch interfaces, handwriting recognition and transreflective backlighting. Can you imagine what your TV viewing experience will be like with any of new sets? It’s going to be mind boggling. Oh wait, i forgot to tell you… Read More

  • BlackBerry 9000 revealed, major disappointment?

    It appears the rumored touchscreen BB is just a myth if you believe what first time poster Cooper over at BB Forums has to say. This photo was purportedly taken in Waterloo at the RIM campus. The 9xxx line won’t see a touchscreen for a long time and it seems as though it’s a myth internally, too according to Coops. I have a hard time swallowing this one. If anything, this looks like… Read More

  • New Blackberry 9000 in iPhone Black?

    A picture of what may or may not be the next-generation Blackberry 9000 popped up in an online forum. The device does not appear to have a touchscreen, but it does sport a black iPhone-like sheen. Again, this could be the real deal, a hoax, or some unrelated prototype. But one thing is for sure: iPhones and Blackberries are on a collision course. As iPhones gain more enterprise-class… Read More

  • Australia Joins China In Censoring The Internet

    The Australian Government has announced that they will be joining China as one of the few countries globally that broadly censor the internet. The Labor Party’s policy was announced prior to the Australian Election in November (release here) and was justified on the basis that the previous Government’s policy of providing free copies of NetNanny to all Australian households who… Read More

  • A Sign Of The Times

    Omnipresence was another big theme in 2007 with Twitter brining always on, always available communication to the masses. Whether this is merely the beginning of a broader trend, or something that will pass in 2008 is still to be seen. Certainly I’m not sure if I want to see lot of people live twittering births, like we saw from Robert Scoble this year, but perhaps overall we’re all… Read More

  • 8Apps Rounds Out The Deadpool for 2007


    Online application provider 8Apps has announced that it will be shutting in January. 8apps offered collaborative online tools not dissimilar to those offered by 37signals. According to a post by Download Squad reviewing the site back in July the site was on the market then, but it appears there were no takers. Probably not helping the service was its failure to ever open to the public; even… Read More

  • Girl gets a creepy counterculture note in box instead of iPod


    Some poor kid was expecting to receive a new iPod (Touch or Classic not specified) but instead received what appears to be a viral message from either a filthy commie or Adbusters. The note instructed her to reclaim her mind from the “media’s shackles” and read a book. It doesn’t say which book, but I’m guessing not something from Oprah’s Book Club. It… Read More

  • XBL accounts pwn3d, Microsoft does nothing


    An XBL user has reported that his account has been hacked for apparently the third time just recently. The hacker actually responded to a message from the hackee with the message above, pleading ignorance of the previous hacks, and from his complex grammar and use of elaborate codes (“eevr” and “neevr”) we may deduce that these people are highly educated, organized… Read More
