  • Rumor: Verizon orders 400,000 Palm handsets

    Someone’s gotta help Palm out. After the somewhat lukewarm response to the Pixi and the Pre, it’s rather surprising that Verizon would decide to place a big order. Word is though, that’s exactly what they did. Read More

  • Samsung outs the IceTouch and MyFit PMPs

    We’re sure to see a ton of small portable media players this week at CES and these from Samsung are just two of them. The Samsung MyFit is aimed at fitness junkies, while trendy kids will probably opt for the IceTouch. They both are candybar-type devices and playback media, but that’s where the similities end.

  • The Datacolor Spyder3HDMI calibrates your HDTV through HDMI

    Datacolor has been in the HDTV and computer monitor calibrating scene for some time now. Its latest model, the Spyder3HDMI, is just the latest calibration tool in a long line.

Hopefully it works as well as… Read More

  • The Skiff Reader is 11.5-inches of pure ebook hotness

    CES is bound to be full of slate computers and e-book readers. But the Skiff Reader might stick out from the rest thanks to its huge 11.5-inch display and very thin bezel. That’s nearly two inches bigger than the Kindle DX, but yet the whole device is only .25-inches thick. Nice, eh? Oh, and it uses Sprint’s 3G network. Read More

It’s also a good way to make small talk.

  • Eight boring HP computers leak out before CES

    Whoops, it looks like most, if not all, of HP’s CES computer lineup has leaked a few days early. So far detailed spec sheets are missing for the four notebooks and four deskstops, but none of them really seem to be all that exciting. The most noteworthy one out of the bunch is the Mini 210 HD  netbook that comes sporting a Pine Trail CPU and Broadcom’s Crystal HD video playback… Read More
