    Wired gets a hands-on with the iPhone 3G OS, not that impressive [Update]

    Danny over at Wired managed to wrangle himself a first gen iPhone with iP3G software installed, which is pretty exciting, but it’s actually pretty ho-hum. Maybe a few of these things weren’t known, but they’re not at all surprising. When using the camera it prompts the user to allow for geo tagging. Eh. Location based services can be turned on and off. You can now search for… Read More

    You can’t believe everything you read and rumors are just rumors. So what can we expect from Google tomorrow? Will it just be an OS or will there be an actual gPhone? Are you excited for the Google OS? Or are you too enamored with your stupid precious iFones to care? Read More

    New Palm OS delayed, again

    Come on, Palm! First you fold the Foleo, which broke Doug’s heart, and now you’re delaying your new OS until the end of next year! The new OS is purported to allow Palm to unveil a slew of new products including a device similar to the Foleo. This can’t be good. Not one bit. Palm admits new OS 18 months away [The Reg] Read More

  • Blackberry OS and WinMo 6 Go Toe-To-Toe

    Blackberry OS and WinMo 6 Go Toe-To-Toe

    The folks at LAPTOP Mag must be really bored because they’ve put forth some effort for a Friday. As the picture implies, the winner is very clear and WinMo still bites it hard no matter what version it is. Multimedia is the only area which I will concede that WinMo is better than the Blackberry OS, but that’s all based on carrier. So it’s a moot point IMO. WinMo 6 may have an… Read More

    Sun Buys SavaJe With Leftover Raffle Tickets

    Breaking news, folks. Sun Microsystems, creators of hit products like Java and the Java Runtime Engine and Java 2, have acquired all the assets and intellectual property of SavaJe, which is some startup that made a Java-based OS for cellphones. The company is now out of business, hence why Sun was actually able to afford a purchase since, last I checked, Sun isn’t exactly rolling in cash. No… Read More

    Sorry, We're Fresh Out Of XP

    Looks like PC manufacturers are getting screwed by Microsoft. According to Slashdot, by the end of this year, manufacturers won’t be able to grab a copy of Windows XP OEM. Dell will be selling XP on select models, but only until the end of the year because Microsoft won’t allow any further sales. This is a terrible move by Microsoft on so many levels. First off, consumers want choice. Read More
