    LG KG810 Chocolate Flip Phone

    The LG KG800 Chocolate Phone was grandly launched to a collective “meh” from tech reviewers and bloggers everywhere. Sure it looked nice, but some bugs and other quirks kept it from being spectacular. Well, hopefully the KG810 flip-phone version will fix some of those problems.

    ASUS VX1 Lamborghini Notebook

    We’re not sure what kind of people buy Lamborghini-branded Notebooks. None of our friends have one and nobody we know is in the target market. But maybe that’s the point. Lambo owners are a selective crowd, and maybe it takes someone with lots of bucks to be able to plop down for a garishly-yellow $2,799 notebook. Marketing talk aside, this Intel Core Duo-based notebook has a… Read More

    GoBook XR-1: Ruggedized Ruggedness


    Itronix makes military grade hardware for heavy-duty missions and the GoBook XR-1 is no exception. This monster has up to three wireless systems including WWAN, built-in GPS, and “meets MIL STD 810F (military standard) ratings for drop/shock and vibration and the IP54 (ingress protection),” which I suspect means it’s hard to break unless the military does something with… Read More
