    OnePlus Uses A Sexist Contest To Sell Its New Phone

    In this week’s episode of totally batshit crazy things some brands do to get attention, OnePlus (the maker of a new smartphone called The One) is kindly offering a bump on the waiting list for women who are willing to enter the equivalent of an online beauty contest. Because I literally can’t bring myself to describe a contest that is so demeaning towards women and generally… Read More

    OnePlus One Review: Smartphone Value Redefined By A Newcomer

    OnePlus is a rare beast: A startup building smartphones. Their first device is the Android-based OnePlus One, which, despite its unnecessarily repetitive name, is impressive hardware in a market where legacy device makers rule the roost and charge top dollar for smartphones packing the same kind of internals as the One. The OnePlus One is actually a remarkable deal at $299 for an unlocked… Read More

    The OnePlus One Offers Top-Tier Android Phone Specs At $299

    Not all smartphones are created equal, but the new OnePlus One (not to be confused with that other One, the HTC One) is roughly equivalent on paper with some of the most expensive smartphones in the world, albeit with a price that puts it much more within reach than most of those. The OnePlus One starts at $299 for a white 16GB version, and will also offer a 64GB variant in black for $349 when… Read More

  • HTC One Mini Hands-On

    HTC Finally Outs The Slightly Smaller One Mini, We Go Hands-On

    At long last, HTC finally confirmed what we all already knew to be true — the HTC One mini is a real mid-range smartphone, and it’s going to start hitting store shelves across the globe shortly. Given HTC’s track record with this sort of thing so far, it’s no shock to see that images of the device leaked one last time before HTC made its official announcement. The… Read More

    With The HTC One Launch, HTC Tries Apple Tactics To Challenge Samsung’s Android Dominance

    HTC unveiled its newest flagship phone, the HTC One at a special press event in NYC and London today, and the drastically different design marks a departure from a strategy of trying to beat other Android OEMs (read: Samsung) at their own game. Instead, HTC looks to be taking cues from Apple to better compete, in more ways than one. Read More

    HTC One Lineup Revealed: The One X, One S, And One V

    The rumors were true, everyone. After months of anticipation and speculation, the device once known as the HTC Edge (or Endeavor) has been officially revealed here at MWC as the HTC One X. The One X (called a “multimedia livewire” in the press release) has an 8-megapixel camera, 4.7-inc LCD display, and 1080p video recorder. The new One X runs Android with the HTC Sense 4 UI overlay.

    Rumor Roundup: What To Expect From HTC At Mobile World Congress

    With the end of February nearly in sight, the tech community is all abuzz with talk about Mobile World Congress, the huge mobile conference set to take place in beautiful Barcelona in just over a week.

    SV Angel, True Ventures And Others Put $1 Million Into Interest-Based Connections App One

    19-year-old entrepreneur Cory Levy is trying to solve a problem. He believes that we miss millions of opportunities to meet like-minded people because we don’t have any knowledge of the people around us. There could be people within feet of you at a coffee shop, office building or bar who share friends, interests and professional connections, but we may never realize this in the… Read More

  • 'ONE' iPhone App Allows You To Call Your Senators To Instigate Change

    If you’re like me you’re probably too preoccupied to get political on a daily basis, even though you are passionate about social activism and causes like education reform. But what if an app made it easier for you to get informed and take political action on the issues you care about? Would you get involved then? Launching in the app store today is ONE, an iPhone app that attempts… Read More

  • Devon Tread 1 Watch Hands-On

    Here it is, hands-on coverage with a close to final production ready prototype of the highly anticipated Devon Tread 1 watch. While it tells the time and is a luxury item, the Devon Tread 1 shares very little with the rest of the high-end watch world. Despite the fact that it has plenty of moving parts, this isn’t a mechanical watch in the traditional sense. It uses a… Read More

  • Possible Acer mini-laptop sighting?

    According to UMPCPortal, these may be photos of the Acer Aspire One, a tiny laptop similar to the Eee, except that the first two E’s are replaced with the letters “O” and “N” to change things up a bit. The UI looks non-Windows-y, despite early reports indicating that Acer’s entrant would run XP. The UI shown above could be media center type software, though. Read More

  • CrunchDeals: Refurb TomTom ONE for $99 at Buy.com

    I’ll be honest with you. If I hadn’t gotten rid of my car late last year, I’d be tempted to pick one of these up myself. There are plenty of cheap GPS units out there but to be able to grab a TomTom unit for under $100 seems to be a pretty sweet deal. The unit is refurbished, yes, but you’ll get the same warranty as if it were new (one year, I believe) and you can extend… Read More

  • XPS ONE from Dell now available for purchase

    Move over Gateway One. Here comes another all-in-one computer with the same name, except this computer is made by a different company named Dell. The XPS ONE starts at $1499 and features a 20-inch widescreen, Intel Core Duo 2 processor (E4500 or E6550 depending on the configuration), wireless mouse and keyboard, TV tuner and remote, 2GB of memory, Vista Home Premium, Adobe Elements Studio… Read More

  • Mossberg reviews Gateway One, says it's no iMac

    Since Gateway announced the One, everyone and their cousin has known it’s a blatant copy of Apple’s iMac. Even Uncle Walt over at the Wall Street Journal knows damn well what Gateway and Dell are trying to do with their all-in-one computer systems. Unfortunately for Gateway, while imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, the One doesn’t even come close to the iMac. In… Read More

  • Gateway One Has Arrived

    Oops. Guess I let this one slip out a bit early yesterday, but here it is again. I present to you the Gateway iMac…errr…I mean the Gateway One. A lustrous and chic all in one PC if you can’t tell by the images. The One is encased in metal at just 3.6-inches deep with a 19-inch widescreen TFT active-matrix LCD with 1440×900 resolution. Its plethora of features isn’t… Read More

  • Gateway One Looks A Lot Like…

    Everyone is taking design cues from Apple and it’s rather apparent when you look at other high-end products. Am I right? Of course I am. If you think I’m wrong then you tell me the Gateway One doesn’t resemble an iMac. The One is encased in metal at just 3.6-inches deep with a 19-inch widescreen LCD. Its plethora of features isn’t ground breaking, but it’s nice… Read More
