    T-Mobile 3G rollout dates revealed

    With the Android-powered HTC Dream launching on their network sometime in the next few months, T-Mobile’s feelin’ the heat to get their 3G network as prepped as possible. Just a few weeks ago, a poster taped to someone’s wall told us that 3G would hit October 1st. While we had looked forward to hosting a big nationwide T-Mobile 3G countdown on September 30th, CellPhone Signal is… Read More

  • Dash Express finally shipping

    Dash Express finally shipping

    I’ve been following the Dash Express — the “flocking” GPS device that tells other Dash devices in its vicinity about traffic problems and can connect to WiFi to look up addresses — for over a year now and every time I’ve met with them they’ve been pushing back the ship date. Well, now you can pre-order the Dash Express for $599 and will ship in February. Read More

  • Fox News Camera Crew Gets Out Of Line

    I don’t want to put too much personal commentary into this one so I’ll leave it to you guys to sound off in the comments. Reader Owen sent us this video of a mascot from Hungrr.com handing out pins and collecting donations for a charity on the day of the iPhone launch in NYC. However, good things suddenly turn bad as some asshole from Fox News berates the poor guy for being in his… Read More

  • iPhone Launch at Apple Store in SoHo

    iPhone Launch at Apple Store in SoHo

    It’s here! Heaven’s gates—the Apple Store in SoHo—opened at 6 p.m. EDT, whereupon a half dozen people at a clip were allowed entry. Peter and I were there and we got to see Spike Lee and heard people say, “Is that Spike Lee?” As the doors opened, hecklers shouted, “You did it! You’re American heroes!” And Peter almost got into a fight with a… Read More

  • Steve Jobs to Address Apple Employees Today on iPhone Launch

    Steve Jobs to Address Apple Employees Today on iPhone Launch

    Steve Jobs will give the whole Apple team a pep talk later today in preparation for the iPhone’s launch. Apple employees will gather at “Town Hall,” which reeks of Big Brotherness, where they will hear Jobs give his last speech before the big launch. Since the iPhone’s launch, right or wrong, is probably the biggest launch in electronics in quite some time, I imagine Jobs… Read More

  • AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch

    AT&T Hires 2,000 Extra Employees For iPhone Launch

    Never again do I want to hear people complaining that they couldn’t find a summer job. Seems AT&T is so confident that people will show up for the iPhone in droves, it has taken the liberty of hiring an extra 2,000 employees to prepare for the madness. To make sense of how big the iPhone launch is going to be, here are some hot statistics: 1,800 AT&T retail stores exist and will all… Read More

  • AT&T To Close Stores For iPhone

    AT&T To Close Stores For iPhone

    Though the title is a bit deceiving, it’s also very true. AT&T will be closing down every single one of its retail stores in preparation for the launch of Apple’s iPhone. To stay on track with the target 6pm launch, most stores are said to be closing around 4pm so that employees can get ready, prepare for the rush, and set up adverts in every inch of the store. The close also comes… Read More

    iPhone Launch Details Emerge

    Well, well, well. We now know why Apple and AT&T are launching the iPhone at 6 p.m, but frankly, it pisses me off. All AT&T stores will shut their doors at 4:30PM to take shipment of iPhones. Apple is really keeping the wraps on these bad boys until the very last second. This is going to cause so much chaos. Wouldn’t you agree? A few other tidbits about launch day tell us that stores… Read More

  • See? I Told You The PS3 Is The Best Console Ever!

    See? I Told You The PS3 Is The Best Console Ever!

    Oh wait. What’s that noise? Is that the sound of Nintendo Wii owners whining and pouting? My goodness! Keep it down! Just because 100 lucky people who lined up to get a PS3 got a free 45-inch Sony Bravia LCD TV doesn’t mean you should be poor sports. I mean, doesn’t the Wii come with like a wrist-strap or something cool like that? But all fun and games aside, 100 people really… Read More
