  • Another iPod Touch case with a hole in it UPDATE

    Another iPod Touch case with a hole in it UPDATE


    So it looks like this whole “iPod Touch with Camera” thing is coming to fruition. While the first case we saw was a little wonky, this makes more sense. Take a look at the back of your iPod touch – there’s a Wi-Fi antenna on the left side so the only place they could stuff a camera would be in the center, next to the antenna. I’m not sure what else is up in… Read More

    Alert the media! LucasArts’ official Twitter feed has been tweeting non-stop about… something! It looks like the company is poised to announce a new game based on an old game/franchise tomorrow, July 6. Read More

  • iPod Touch 3G case? Nah

    iPod Touch 3G case? Nah

    Reader “Jenny” sent us a link to a silicone case from Asiajunk manufacturer UXSight. It purports to show an iPod Touch 3G – third generation, not third generation wireless – with two holes -one for a camera and one for the antenna. Or maybe the little one is for a little pencil that comes out and draws the subject on a piece of paper? Remember: Apple never releases… Read More

    Rumor: Nokia places orders with Taiwan's big netbook and smartbook manufacturers

    Even though Nokia and Intel were both relatively tight-lipped yesterday about the actual hardware products that’ll spring forth from their new joint-venture, rumors are already circulating that Nokia has placed orders with Quanta and Compal, Taiwan’s number one and two netbook/smartbook manufacturers, respectively.

    Rumor Quashed: No new Xbox 360 in 2010

    The rumor that Microsoft would be shipping a bumped-up Xbox 360 console with Natal integrated in 2010 has turned out to be false according to director of product management, Aaron Greenberg. Read More

  • Palm Pixie is real, but may never materialize

    Lots of excitement today over a second Palm WebOS device now that the Pre has launched. The only problem is that none of this is news. We broke the story about the device, code named Pixie, on April 29. A day later we had the Pixie name and additional details. As far as I can tell there are no additional details coming out now. So I’ll supply additional information that we’ve… Read More

  • Fun rumor says $100 price cut for PS3 coming this August (in time for Madden)

    Fun rumor says $100 price cut for PS3 coming this August (in time for Madden)

    Still fretting over the price of the PS3? Well, if one analyst proves accurate, then Sony will cut the price of the PS3 by $100 in mid-August. And if “mid-August” sounds vaguely familiar to you, that’s because it is! That’s when EA releases Madden, a game that, somehow, still sells a boatload every year. (Note: I have never bought a Madden game. Imagine that!) Read More

  • Hybrid storage controversy: Did Microsoft just ban the sale of the MSI Wind U115?

    Hybrid storage controversy: Did Microsoft just ban the sale of the MSI Wind U115?

    Oh man, not two minutes after a positive Microsoft story (which was, in fairness, preceded by a negative one) there’s this. Word on the street is that Microsoft is seeking to prevent the sale of the MSI Wind U115. Why’s that? Apparently Microsoft has no time for a netbook—“a race to the bottom,” claims CrunchGear’s John Biggs—running Windows XP Home… Read More

  • Did Best Buy just leak the Windows 7 price? (Probably not, no.)

    Did Best Buy just leak the Windows 7 price? (Probably not, no.)

    So there’s this leaked Best Buy memo that shows the store that I’ll never visit again selling Windows 7 Home Premium Upgrades for $49.99 and Windows 7 Professional Upgrades for $99.99. Does that mean that Microsoft will sell said Windows 7 upgrades for said prices across the boards? Eh, not really. I seem to recall Best Buy selling Vista upgrades for one price, then, when Vista… Read More

  • Is $100 cheap enough to get you to buy an iPhone?

    Is $100 cheap enough to get you to buy an iPhone?

    The red hot rumor going around this hour—there will be a new rumor before lunchtime, such is our attention span—is that Apple will launch a $99 iPhone at WWDC next week. One of those highly paid analyst types said such a move, that is, a $100 price cut for the lowest end model, would increase demand by 100 percent. It’s not clear how dumbed down this cheap-o iPhone would be… Read More
