  • New Apple notebook spotted, we told you so

    The above photo may be the work of a PS junkie or it may just be the real thing. In any case, the rumor mill is abuzz surrounding Macworld. This time around it’s all coming back to the purported multi-touch trackpad we told you about during the summer. Sure our sources duped us by saying it’d be out in October, but it’s better late then never. There’s also some talk… Read More

  • Photos of Pentax K200D surface?

    PMA is about a month away so the rumor mill is slowly building steam. The K100D has been cleared from Pentax’s site and I can see why the K200D would replace it, but the Super hasn’t been around a year so I don’t see it disappearing. It’s safe to say that the K100D’s replacement is coming, but the photos of the K200D look pretty fake. They look sloppy. The grip… Read More

  • Android in February? Prepare grains of salt now

    Google has booked not one, but two (!!!!!) booths at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this February. That means that it’ll probably be showing off Android phones then, right? Maybe. Or maybe not. APC Magazine thinks that we’ll see some Android headsets on February 11th, but let’s all keep that in our back pockets until then. Read More

  • Apple rumored to launch UMPC AKA "The Sasquatch"


    SeekingAlpha has pieced together evidence of an upcoming Apple UMPC with that looks like an iPhone with not one by two home buttons on either side of the device. It is rumored to run on gumdrops and puppy whiskers and may cost $5 when it is finally launched at the Kingom of Arglebargle’s MacWorld Expo on the planet Flutterbutter. My strongest piece of evidence came from a trusted… Read More

  • iPhone in Japan: NTT DoCoMo?

    Rumors are a-flying that Steve met with NTT DoCoMo’s president, Masao Nakamura, about launching the iPhone in Japan. Although I was underwhelmed by Japan’s keitai offerings, I’m sure the iPhone will look like a charming anachronism to the average Tokyo-ite. He’s also talking to Softbank Corp., but I’d say it’s DoCoMo FTW in this one. Apple Meets With… Read More

  • Goldman Sachs "makes stuff up" about Apple's 2008 plans


    Yeah, just stuck an LCD on there somewhere. Naw, doesn’t matter where. Apple TV with an LCD screen? Small iPhone memory upgrade? Apparently the Goldman guys have been snorting a bit too much nose candy at their holiday parties and are spouting all sorts of nonsense about Apple’s 2008 plans. Their first prognostication? Among them is a second-generation iPhone currently in the… Read More

  • Yet another 3G phone surfaces for 3g-less T-Mobile

    Now this is just getting silly. Samsung has a new phone very similar to the Blast that just cleared the FCC. The dual-band GSM phone purportedly also features dual-band WCDMA, or, as we call it, 3G connectivity. By itself, that’s nothing, but in the leaked FCC cert pics, you’ll notice T-Mobile’s myFaves logo on the back. This would be the third 3G phone offered by T-Mobile in… Read More

  • Rumor: VOIP software working on iPod Touch?

    This story is still developing, but apparently someone has gotten the "Nintendo DS-based SIP app" running on the iPod Touch. Such software could use a microphone dock connector (pictured left) to send and receive voice calls. This is promising news but, again, it’s still early so we’ll wait to find out more. VoIP confirmed!!! [iPod Touch Mods] via TUAW Read More

  • Rumor: Eee PC to officially support Windows next year, with 3.8 Million unit sales target?

    Asus thinks it’s going to sell 3.8 Million Eee PCs next year. While that’s a grand notion, it might actually have some substance. According to an anonymous leak, Asus is in talks with Microsoft on adding official Windows support to the sub-sub-laptops, and Intel wants in on the action as well. But even with the “help” of Windows, is 3.8 Million a likely number? No. A… Read More

  • Rumor: iTunes movies up to $15

    Take this with a grain of salt, but Pali Research analyst Richard Greenfield (“Don’t you know who I am? I’m Richard Greenfield!”) is saying that Apple will raise the price of iTunes movies to $15 in order to convince the big movie players to let them distribute video. The only way this could happen is if Apple started offering HD movies at this higher price — think… Read More

  • Reviewer fired/quits over Kane & Lynch review

    It seems Jeff Gerstmann, formerly of Gamespot, had a falling out with management over a review of Kane & Lynch and either was fired or left of his own accord. The game’s maker, Eidos, was upset by his unfair assessment of this holiday blockbuster featuring Dean Kane and Willie Lynch, two gun-toting country western singers who are out to fight the mob in downtown Toronto. The game is… Read More

  • Rumor: T-Mobile launching 3G on December 6?

    Sometimes a rumor hits the Web and you get a little bit of “it’s about time” mixed with “what, already”? and you get confused and the drugs just don’t work anymore. Such a rumor is coming from the UK’s The Inquirer regarding T-Mobile’s sleepy 3G network in the USA. T-Mo won the spectrum for such a network one million Internet years ago, but… Read More

  • Sony misquoted about possible PlayStation phone

    Sony’s chief operating officer Jim Ryan told the Economic Times of India that a PlayStation phone was "definitely plausible" but later claimed that he was misquoted. A Sony UK spokesperson told ComputerAndVideoGames.com, ""We do have talks with other arms of the Sony family about various topics but I can confirm we are not currently working together on the creation of… Read More

  • Canon 5D Mark II immenent, prepare laser cannons


    Ho ho ho! All of you folks looking for the 5D Mark II might be pleasantly surprised to find out that Capture One added the camera to their website’s error reporting page, suggesting that someone had lunch with someone at Canon maybe like last week and that someone heard that other someone say “Yeah, don’t put the 5D Mark II on your site yet, dude. God. The waitress is… Read More

  • Nintendo Speaks: New, Slimmer Nintendo DS for Xmas?

    Nintendo sez: probably not. If you’re waiting for that redesigned, slimmer, non-GBA-emulating Nintendo DS, don’t expect it under your tree this Xmas. Nintendo has responded to analysts who’ve said this new DS is coming by basically saying, “not really, at least not right now.” While the rumored upgrade is the natural progression for the handheld, the analysts are… Read More

  • AppleTV getting calendar/contact sync (??)

    Some of the folks at AppleTVSource found some strings pertaining to calendar and contacts syncing for the Apple TV which sounds fairly far-fetched. Maybe you can add your calendar entries on the TV? The Apple TV will inform you when you’re late? Who knows. Rumor and innuendo, friends. Contacts and Calendar syncing coming to the Apple TV? [AppleTVSource] Read More

  • Rumor: Google to acquire Sprint, a bad case of dandruff, some flatware

    Hrmmm… so they’re saying that Google will buy Sprint. While this is as likely as the Pope buying up a chain of dry cleaners in Wisconsin, there might just be some truth to this wild, inaccurate rumor. Some guy who covers the space says: So do I think Google will make such an acquisition? Maybe. If the search leader is going to bid on wireless spectrum it may make more sense to just… Read More

  • CrunchRumor: Sony launching 16GB Memory Stick at CES?

    We hate rumors. No, wait, we love them. So do you, that’s why you’re here. We’ve got one that we’ve been hearing about that will bore most of you, but some of you will love. The word is that at CES in January, Sony is going to be dropping 16GB Memory Stick Pros, doubling the current top-end of 8GB. If true, then Memory Stick might not be a back-seat format anymore… Read More
