  • RGM Pennsylvania Tourbillon MM 2 Watch: American-Made At Its Finest

    I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first laid eyes on the movement for this RGM Pennsylvania Tourbillon watch (which I discussed here). Sure the final version isn’t much different than the preview I saw a while ago, but seeing it all put together with case, text, hands, and finishing is really satisfying. I feel a nice level of price seeing this timepiece, knowing it is all American. Read More

  • Apparently Sprint and Verizon have refuted the BlackBerry Tour high return rate claim

    The story goes like this: A TownHall Investment Research director was quoted by Barron’s as saying that Sprint is seeing almost a 50% return rate on the BlackBerry Tour primarily because of trackball issues.

  • Have you returned your BlackBerry Tour like you just don't care?

    The BlackBerry Tour is apparently being returned in droves. It seems that the trackball is easily mucked up, which requires constant cleaning and sometimes just outright fails. RIM’s recommendation is to clean the trackball with compressed air. Serious. Barron’s quotes a TownHall Investment Research director as saying that Sprint’s return rate on the Tour has “been… Read More

  • Sprint now offering a cameraless Blackberry Tour

    File this one under: What took so long? Sprint is finally offereing the Blackberry Tour without a camera. Why you ask? Well, some jobs do not allow cameras in the workplaces and so employees need such a phone. The cameraless option carries the same price of $199 with a 2-year agreement. It’s just strange that it took Sprint so long to offer this model as Verizon’s had both… Read More

  • The BlackBerry Tour gets torn apart, reassembled

    I don’t get the fascination with gadget tear downs. I mean, who cares? It’s not like any of us understand what the hell is on the circuit boards. I say as long as the product works, lets leave it intact. But apparently like Internet loves herself some gadget tear downs so here is the BlackBerry Tour dissected while a terrible soundtrack is played in the background. Read More

  • The iPhone Tour: I Give Up

    Please don’t hate us, Mike. See, reader Mike emailed me asking us to stop talking about the iPhone. But we can’t. We really can’t. It’s taken over the entire news cycle. Everyone is afraid of the iPhone and they won’t launch anything to compete for it. Imagine releasing, I don’t know, a fairly cool sci-fi movie the same week Star Wars 7: Attack of George… Read More
