  • Dell (??) to show Android phone (??) at MWC (??)

    Dell (??) to show Android phone (??) at MWC (??)


    We got a tip in last night regarding the possible, rumored launch of a super-secret Dell product that runs Android. First off, Dell makes Axim’s and that’s about it. Second off, Google isn’t even at MWC but I think Android is on the floor but is definitely not at any Dell location I can espy. Rumor and innuendo, I suspect. My brother is senior level management at dell and… Read More

  • Apple might make a handheld game console AND/OR make a robotic monkey to fetch your colostomy bag

    Apple might make a handheld game console AND/OR make a robotic monkey to fetch your colostomy bag

    Apple just trademarked some sort of weird logo for a hand-held gaming rig which everyone is speculating is actually some sort of very exciting Apple-branded handheld game system that will work with iTunes and be the best thing in the world. What I really think is going on here is that Apple is trademarking a logo for when some crazy Chinese pirate company starts making “Apple”… Read More

  • Rumors that swirl: Apple event at the end of the month?

    [photopress:applelogo.jpg,full,center] We’ve got a handful of tippages today that Apple will be holding a press conference later this month to announce, well, something. We’re guessing MacBook Pro upgrades, or maybe something to do with Apple TV. It won’t be new MacBooks or iPods or iPhones, so calm yourselves. Read More

  • Crooks and Liars: No Duke Nukem Forever this year says 3D Realms president

    [photopress:nodnf.jpg,full,right] Forget whatever you heard about Duke Nukem Forever original story titlecoming out this year. 3D Realms president Scott Miller called the claim bogus and called the claim’s creators “lying bastards.” That’s refreshingly frank from a company president and fairly sloppy of the Dallas Morning News. The release date is still “when… Read More

  • Two Sony Ericsson handsets leaked

    Two Sony Ericsson handsets leaked

    Days ahead of MWC come more leaks and this time from the Sony Ericsson camp. Codenamed Alona and Bei Bei, the former looks to stir things up with a radical design. Ok, maybe not so radical, but it’s pretty cool looking for a clamshell from SE. The outer cover features touch sensitive controls music controls and display that give you all the normal vitals you’d find on any other device. Read More

  • Rumor: Slimmed down PS3 on track for autumn release

    [photopress:psthree.jpg,full,center] Maybe, just maybe, a slimmed down PS3 is in the works. A PSThree, if you will. There’s little in the way of “information” in this report, by speculation points to a slimmer PS3, possibly with a 160GB hard drive. An autumn release has been bandied about, so we’ll see. As you know, the PS3 is the best Blu-ray player . I’ll still… Read More

  • Apple to launch little UMPC? Ehh, maybe?

    Apple to launch little UMPC? Ehh, maybe?


    Ceci n’est pas une Apple UMPC David Sieger is positing that Apple may or may not be working on a ultramobile-like mini-PC running Intel’s Silverthorne processor, a low-power processor that has discrete Mac SDK support. He’s also dug up some information on a device with a 5.2-inch touchscreen and 3G and, presumably, it will have to be launched six or so months before actual… Read More

  • Claim: 'Drama' building around XM-Sirius merger tonight

    [photopress:xmsiren.gif,full,right] Something’s afoot regarding the XM-Sirius merger tonight. Drudge has a sly little note on the left-hand column that reads: “Approved or Denied? Drama Builds Around Sirius-XM Merger… Developing…” The proposed merger was announced nearly one year ago on February 17, 2007 and has developed into one of the most annoying stories… Read More

  • Rumor: New MacBook Pros on St. Patrick's Day?

    [photopress:mbp.jpg,full,left]My birthday is St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th. It’s a great day to have a birthday, as I’m not the only one hung over the next day, and nobody has an excuse not to come have fun. It’s also the day that we may see new Multitouch-enabled MacBook Pros, if our source is correct. He/She is saying that the lineup will get an across-the-board… Read More

  • Claim: Nvidia working on GPGPU for Apple

    [photopress:nvidiateslac870.png,full,center] News from the rumor mill (read that again… yes, it’s contradictory) is that Nvidia is developing a GPGPU for Apple. GPGPU stands for general-purpose computing on graphics processing units and, in English, is a GPU that’s able to carry out CPU instructions. A GPU that can crunch non-graphics numbers, in other words. Or you can read… Read More

  • Palm's Treo 800w starting to come together

    [photopress:treo800wleak.jpg,full,left]Way back two weeks ago, during the Bill Gates keynote at CES, we noted a mysterious Treo-like device was in part of his presentation. There was no attention called to the device, it was just there, and most people in the audience didn’t really notice it. But we did, we’re bloggers, it’s what we do. I couldn’t get anyone from MS… Read More

  • HTC Touch coming to Verizon: People who liked the Sprint Touch had better switch carriers, shave their bodies, prepare for His coming

    HTC Touch coming to Verizon: People who liked the Sprint Touch had better switch carriers, shave their bodies, prepare for His coming

    Actually, I’m just joking. The Verizon Touch is a little slimmer than the Sprint version and it’s all white, but it’s really not the second coming of the great corn god Centeotl. It is, in fact, slim PDA with featuring a fairly cool UI trick bolted onto the a rat turd baked into a loaf of German black bread and then eaten inadvertently by a five year old boy who then throws up… Read More

  • Macworld 2008 Keynote: What of the other rumors?

    Macworld 2008 Keynote: What of the other rumors?

    What an exciting Keynote. The MacBook Air is drool-worthy, (though I think the price is high,) and we finally have real HD content for the AppleTV, in the form of the legendary movie rentals. And Time Capsule’s a cool product that will save Mac users, as well as Mac support, many headaches. The iPhone update’s a good start, and makes me almost want an iPhone, but I’m not… Read More

  • Case manufacturers and potential new MacBooks: Canaries in coalmines?

    Case manufacturers and potential new MacBooks: Canaries in coalmines?

    Every few Keynotes we get emails from case manufacturers encouraging us to keep an eye open for new case designs. For example, one designer told us today that they would be ready to ship on Friday “if Steve Jobs announces a new laptop.” While we know this is more conjecture and making-up-stuff-ure, looks like the first folks to be hit by a hardware refresh — case… Read More

  • El Rumor: SlingMedia working on iPhone/iPod Touch version of Sling software

    [photopress:SlingPlayer_BlackBerry_Pearl8120_Favorites.jpg,full,right] A blog I’ve never heard of, Electric pig, claims that an “extremely senior source” (they’ve fans of All the Presidents Men) at SlingMedia has promised an iPhone and iPod Touch version of the SlingBox software. If true, that would mean you’d be able to watch your at-home TV channels… Read More

    WinMo 7: Shake it!


    So Windows Mobile 7 leaked all over CES like a nice, fresh Brie and boy are we hap-hap-happy. Finally, Windows Mobile looks barely like something that someone somewhere would actually potentially purchase or use. David at Mobility Today has a nice write up complete with photos. Check out this little picture of a shaky shaky phone playing music. Please let this be the release that makes me go… Read More

    Coming soon to iPhone: Copy and Paste


    The iPhone will soon join us in the 20th century by offering cut and paste. Sources at MacScoop are saying that the new firmware will offer copy and paste functionality as well as faux-GPS, the ability to send mass SMSs, and a multi-page home screen. Next iPhone software update to allow copy-paste [MacScoop] Read More

    Dubious Rumor Alert: Apple is not starting a record label with Jay-Z

    We like BGR as much as the next blog, but we’re calling horse hockey on the Boy’s rumor that Jay-Z is starting a new label for Apple. While we’re sure there’s a nugget of truth to this, Jobs would be shooting himself in the foot if he started an Apple-branded label. Let’s break down why this is kinda goofy. Read More

    Rumor: Red's Redcode coming to Final Cut Studio as native at Macworld

    Part of Macworld next month will be a thing called the Final Cut Pro group, just for you video guys. And we’ve been tracking rumors that there will be a special surprise on the 16th. We’ve done some digging, and we’re fairly sure that this surprise has something to do with the Red One camera and Final Cut’s integration with Redcode. In reality it’ll be an update… Read More

    CLAIM: Metal Gear Solid 4 will come out for the Xbox 360 says Konami rep

    Metal Gear Solid 4 will come out for the Xbox 360 12-14 months after its PS3 debut (which is currently scheduled for Q2 of this year). That’s a bold claim from the team at XboxFamily, but they’re swearing by their sources on this one. We’ll see. A Konami representative allegedly told the site that the game has been in production for the 360 since early 2007. For its part… Read More
