You better watch the hell out come this Autumn, ’cause Verizon has a phone coming out that is going to show that iPhone who’s boss. According to Verizon’s Wireless CMO, the Voyager is not only the “best” phone, but it’s also going to “kill the iPhone”. Read More

  • T-Mobile Samsung Beat review, can you do better?

    What can be said about the Samsung Beat that I didn’t already cover? It’s a tiny music-centric phone (aren’t all phones music-centric these days unless it’s a smart phone?) and as far as those go these days it’s not bad. Heck, you even get a 1GB microSD card. I like that you can keep the music player in the background and still access the music functions while not… Read More

  • Sony's New Slim PSP Is Selling Like Hotcakes

    And by hotcakes, I mean the iPhone. The company announced today that it has sold over 500,000 Playstation Portable units in Japan during the two weeks since its debut. Funny thing is, Sony has sold more PSP Slims in the past two weeks than it ever did with the original version of the system. I suppose the emerging pattern of “thinner is better” really applies to technology and… Read More

  • Who Spams Digg the Most

    On the heels of the recently launched Techmeme Leaderboard, Patrick Altoft at BlogStorm has cobbled together an unofficial list of sites that have the most Digg juice. The ranking is based on Google’s site search (how many results come back for a search of “site:digg.com arstechnica.com,” for instance, a site which happens to be No. 4 on both lists).

  • Buying an iPod nano in Brazil costs nearly eleventeen zillion dollars

    The cheapest place to buy a 4GB iPod nano is Hong Kong ($148.12), while the most expensive place is Brazil ($369.61). Crazy stuff. Yup, Reuters went out of its way to compile a list of worldwide nano prices, using it as a sort of price index. Why? I don’t know. Something about tariffs, currency undervaluation, lolcatz. Here’s the top 10 most expensive 1. Brazil $369.61 2. Read More

  • Fon, BT create world's largest Wi-Fi network

    Did anyone else get a free FON router a few months back? I did and it’s a piece of turd. Mine was constantly cutting in and out and the router started warping from the heat. I think it’s a dumb idea to share my Wi-Fi, but I’ll probably sing a different tune the next time I’m traveling and need a hotspot to mooch off of. Today FON have teamed up with British Telecom to… Read More

  • Not the Zune 2: RAmos MiniQ

    Some of you thought our Zune 2coverage went overboard yesterday. Then again, I seem to remember hearing similar complaints regarding our recent iPod coverage as well. Can’t please ’em all, I suppose. But hey, here’s a DAP that has nothing to do with Apple or Microsoft, the RAmos MiniQ. I mean, if you can spot the DAP in some of these photos I’ll give you one dollar… Read More

  • Telecom Incest: The Fon-BT Deal Sounds Screwy

    On closer inspection, today’s deal between Fon and British Telecom sounds like it could be a costly one for Fon and its investors. GigaOm is suggesting that Fon may have agreed to pay $8 to $10 to BT for every one of its broadband customers who agrees to sign up and activate the Fon service. If that’s true, with three million broadband subs at BT, that represents a potential… Read More

  • The Inevitable March of Recorded Music Towards Free

    2007 is turning out to be a terrible year for the music industry. Or rather, a terrible year for the the music labels. The DRM walls are crumbling. Music CD sales continue to plummet rather alarmingly. Artists like Prince and Nine Inch Nails are flouting their labels and either giving music away or telling their fans to steal it. Another blow earlier this week: Radiohead, which is no… Read More

  • Hands-on with the AT&T Tilt

    We like HTC. We like what they do with the cellphone carriers in the USA. We like that they make high-end handsets that the vendors can label themselves, thereby adding some parity in the phone market. As most major HTC phones have versions for all four carriers, you don’t have to feel like you’re missing out because you’re stuck on Verizon or whatever. And we like that… Read More

  • Vertu Ti shipping, men with small weenies, dried-up crones rejoice


    I’m glad Nokia made the Vertu line. They deserve to have a little fun. But a $7,000 cellphone is just about the upper limit of what I can accept in the luxury market. Dear Oil-rich Sultans and Oligarchs: send me your old Nokia and I’ll dip it in golden paint and send it back to you for $3,500. You’ll get the same effect while spending half of what you’d normally spend on… Read More
