    The second day of Peek-mas

    We're giving away five Peek Protos this week, one a day, and we want you to ask us nicely for one so we can give you one.

  • The Just Because We Love You TwitterPeek Giveaway #Crunch

    If you're a Twitter freak and think that a dedicated Twitter device is just the thing for you, read on. This week we saw the launch of the TwitterPeek, a cute little device built by Peek that will do just about anything you want it to do, as long as all you want it to do is access Twitter. It won't surf the web. It won't make phone calls. It won't support third party apps. But it most certainly… Read More

  • What, exactly, is the Twitter Peek?

    What, exactly, is the Twitter Peek?

    I just got my hands on the the Twitter Peek (AKA the Tweek) and I’m trying to figure out who, specifically, this is for. First, let’s consider this my review: this device is not very good if you’re a Twitter “power user” like myself or anyone else with maybe 100+ followers and a few hundred folks you follow. To be clear, this isn’t quite Peek’s fault as… Read More

    The Peek has been around for a year already and surprise, surprise, it's still around. In fact, you can now snag one without a monthly subscription charge for $299 exclusively from Amazon. Now, I'm not saying you should spend $299 on a device that just does email now that smartphone's monthly subscription costs are dropping, but someone out there might want a dedicated device for email, Twitter… Read More

    Peek has Linux aspirations, wants help

    You know the little e-mail-only device called Peek? Well, the company is hoping to get Linux running on the device and is looking for a someone to do it for them. If someone actually accomplishes the goal, Peek will offer that developer/hacker a mini-consulting gig, which we can only assume is a paying gig. But a Peek with Linux on it, you say... Read More

    Peek Rumors: Google Maps, cheap e-mail

    Peek made a spectacular splash last year winning loads of accolades for doing one simple task - e-mail. Being the technophiles that we are, the entire tech community bitched and moaned about what else the Peek should have in the feature set. Yes, we simply cannot leave things the way they are. So, Peek seems to have heard our whining and it appears a new device or OS upgrade is on the way. It’s… Read More

    So the other day a new device from Peek called the Pronto was leaked out and Peek wasn’t afraid to disavow any knowledge of it. In fact, they told us what’s been improved on the Pronto!

  • A peek inside the Peek

    Such a clever headline, I know. Having had a Peek for several months, I’ve come to the realization that keeping things simple isn’t always the best option. Sure, for those folks who don’t want a BlackBerry the Peek is a useful device, but I have to wonder who actually uses these things. I think RIM should rerelease the first BlackBerry but with an updated façade. If memory serves me… Read More
