    A Week With The Shine, A Beautifully Designed Smart Activity Tracker Made From Japanese Metal

    Fitbits. FuelBands. UPs. The market for smart, connected activity trackers continues to get ever-more crowded. And yet, there’s not an obvious winner yet. Misfit Wearables’ Shine is a new entrant in the space and they may have the most beautifully-designed piece of hardware yet. The company behind the Shine is itself a homage to Apple founder Steve Jobs’ famous… Read More

  • MisFit Wearables Talks About Crowdfunding on Indiegogo at CES

    Indiegogo Founder Slava Rubin Says Crowdfunding Takes Down The “Gatekeepers”

    Slava Rubin knows a thing or two about crowdfunding. Founded in 2008, his company, IndieGogo is a major funding powerhouse, bringing together such disparate projects like the Misfit Shine and The Oatmeal’s anti-troll lawyer fundraiser. Read More

  • AT&T pegs stars from "The Hills" for LG Shine commercial

    Celebrity endorsements have been the norm for ages, but AT&T has taken this too far. I guess I understand the demographic they’re going for for the LG Shine, but, come on, seriously, a blond dimwit from Laguna Beach and her dumb boyfriend from an MTV show? The dbag did find a fun way to use that mirrored finish, though. via GeekSugar Read More

    Hands on: Special edition Iron Man LG Shine


    We managed to get our hands on the special edition Iron Man version of the LG Shine and, boy oh boy, is it pretty. The back plate is 18k gooooooooold. I tried to walk away with it, but security tackled me. It happens. Read More

  • LG Shine Wood: When new paint jobs attack

    LG Shine Wood: When new paint jobs attack

    This is more about getting than word out than anything else. LG will add the LG Shine Wood (LB2500H) to the LG Telecom stable of cellphones. Its name comes from the wood grain pattern paint job. Other than that, it’s same old cellphone. In fact, the features are so standard, I won’t even bother to list them. So… how well is The Arsenal playing? Just give them the Premiership… Read More

  • Giz scores AT&T Shine spy shots

    Giz scores AT&T Shine spy shots

    Many of the newer cellphones we’ve been covering, like the Tilt, have built-in autofocus with their digicams. That’s a good thing, because maybe it means the days of hyper-blurry spyshots is done. Don’t get me wrong, we appreciate what you guys (the spys) do for us (the bloggers), but is it too much to ask you get a decent camera? Here we have the forthcoming American Shine by… Read More

  • LG Shine Goes Back To Black

    LG Shine Goes Back To Black

    Welcome to another edition of: A Phone We’ll Never See in The US. Our guest today is the LG Shine Titanium Black. The first incarnation of the Shine set the world on fire with its sleek and ‘shiny’ full metal jacket and now LG is hoping douchebags with too much money will spend some more on the hot new color. Of course, the 2-megapixel camera by Schneider Kreuznach… Read More

  • LG Wine Phone Has Nothing To Do With Wine, Is Entry Level

    LG Wine Phone Has Nothing To Do With Wine, Is Entry Level

    It’s either a phone made for drunks or for people who pretend they’re fancy, like our very own John here. It’s the LG Wine phone (or the LG-SV300) and, aside from the picture of a wine bottle and glass on the phone’s screen, I cannot figure out why it’s called the Wine. The Prada phone makes sense, as does the Shine, and the Chocolate I can understand to a point… Read More

  • New LG Shine Models Get T-DMB


    LG continues its South Korean dominance with the addition of two new Shine models that both support the T-DMB multimedia broadcasting standard. The clamshell Shine is the one I told you about earlier but there were no specs available at the time. A few key features have been added to both models from the previous Shine. Both will include fantabulous retractable antennas. The clamshell has… Read More

  • LG Shine Dipped In Gold And Folds

    Just announced in SK are LG’s two newest Shine models. Details are skimp, but I don’t anticipate anything new or exciting from either. The Shine we’ve come to know and love has been dipped in gold. The CDMA version will be launched in SK in the coming weeks. Details on the clamshell Shine are very scarce and it seems to be unchanged feature-wise. We haven’t even heard… Read More

  • LG Shine Hits England

    Oh, England, you jerk! Making us all jealous. Not only do you guys get castles and high tea, but you also get the LG Shine before we do. The Shine is the one phone on our radar that might compare to the iPhone as far as sexiness goes, and you’ve got it first. Well, Asia was first, but that’s normal. But you, UK? Not only that, but you’re getting it full retail, unlocked, so… Read More

  • Shiny Shiny Flashes the LG Shine

    Girls, fire up your jealousy motors, because Susi from Shiny Shiny in the UK has gotten her well-manicured hands on a phone that you’re going to want (and most vain men, to boot): the LG Shine. What’s special about the Shine? When the screen isn’t in use, it becomes a mirror, allowing you to make sure your hair is ok, confirm your lipstick isn’t smudged, and check for… Read More

  • LG Shine Live And In Your Face

    Here’s some video porn of the LG Shine… thought you might want to know since one of the mobiles from Korea I’ve told you about is comin’ here. Woot! Read More

  • LG Shining On

    LG Shining On

    We’ve been drooling over the LG Shine for a while now and it was nice to see it live and in the flesh. The Shine is part of LG’s Black Label series — whatever that means — and is clad in steel. It has a 2-megapixel camera and 1GB of built-in storage. Here we see the “Hangul” version with poet Yoon Dong-joo’s “Night of Counting Stars”… Read More

  • The Shining…It's Real

    LG plans to launch the Shine, GSM, stateside at CES so I guess one of Korea’s cool phones will be making it here after all. As usual, we’ll still get the short end of the stick as the EU will get it first. The Shine will be showcased in Vegas with an all stainless steel booth designed to show off just how shiny it is! The Shining [Chosun Ilbo] Read More
