  • iPhone 2.0 in all its boring firmware glory

    Here we see some first video of the unlocked, super-hacked 2.0 firmware with Exchange support, a new calculator (!!), and complete carrier agnosticism. This is actually a completely new, essentially branched version of the developer firmware and is barely even an Apple product anymore. Amazing work by the iPhonedevteam, am I right? via Giz Read More

  • Zune 2.0 For The Holidays

    Zune 2.0 For The Holidays

    The geeks over at Whiz Byte have the scoop on the G2 Zune and when we might see it. According to a MS rep, we can expect to see it just in time for the holiday rush. It’s a bit strange that MS wants to move the Zune towards ‘parity with iPod’, but then again, MS has been playing second fiddle to Apple for quite some time. What a waste of time. Hot Scoops, Whiz Byte, Hot… Read More

    HP Working On HDTVs With Direct Movie Buying

    With more and more people buying HDTVs, demand for HD content is increasing ten-fold each month. While HP may not care about printers so much anymore, it’s definitely working hard in the television sector. A new concept called HDTV 2.0 is on its way and the technology isn’t far off to support it. Essentially, the goal is for future HDTV sets to have an Ethernet or WiFi Internet link… Read More

    The Ogo Lives On!

    If you were to ask me what a 7-11 and a failed communication device have in common, I’d say the Ogo from back in the day. Though it never quite caught on here, the Ogo lives on in the palms of our brothers across the Atlantic. IXI Mobile has launched the Ogo 2.0, which is pretty much the old one with a better display and re-done interface. It also has stereo speakers for…some… Read More

  • Samsung Vista LCD


    While I’m not a fan of Windows, let’s give it up to Samsung for introducing their two new widescreen monitors with Windows Vista certification. Yes that’s right I said Windows Vista certification. These beauties come in 20 and 22 inch models (CX206BW and CX226BW) with a sassy black high-gloss piano finish to rev up there new Syncmaster LCD series. Details are skimp but we… Read More

  • All Aboard The Wii Train

    All Aboard The Wii Train

    The above Nintendo Wii peripheral is a new controller that goes with Taito’s train simulation game. We haven’t heard too much about this game, so we can’t say if the controller will have any kind of motion sensing capabilities, though, I hope it does. The controller carries the same clean look of the Nintendo DS-Lite (which is cool), and you can’t help but like the… Read More

  • Twenty-Inch Laptop Hits the Streets of Manhatten

    <img class="left" src="http://tctechcrunch2011.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/laptop hybrid. At 18.5 pounds, it's not really intended for the roadwarrior. But what if it were? The good people at Laptop Magazine took their demo model for a stroll about town, and made record of the reactions from the common man. They ranged from incredulous to disgusted, but the machine made… Read More
