    Why wait for the Nexus One Android OTA update when you can have it now?

    Patience is a virtue, but as tech fanatics who lap up the latest in hardware and software, we’ve not enirely familiar with that concept. So when we heard that it could take up to a few days for the Nexus One Android OTA update, it was a little disheartening. We want it now! And thanks to some clever folks over at Android Forums, we can get it right this moment. It just takes some simple… Read More

    Google Nexus One gets OTA update, multi-touch goodness

    When Google announced the Nexus One at an event early last month, one journalist asked, “Why doesn’t this have multi-touch? When is it going to get multi-touch?” Andy Rubin, VP of Engineering at Google, said, “It’s something we’re looking into.

    Palm WebOS update released, still no iTunes support

    The latest version of the WebOS was released today, with some minor improvements to the bluetooth, email, and the calendar. They still haven't worked out that pesky iTunes problem though. As far as updates go, this one isn't terribly exciting. Palm added support to phone downloads from the Amazon music store (you used to have to use WiFi), backed up your bookmarks to your profile (so you won't… Read More

    Android SDK v.9 released, along with '08 Developer Roadmap

    We’ve got good news, and we’ve got bad news. The good news: After a five month stretch without a publicly available update to the Android SDK, Google has finally pushed a new release. They’ve also released a Developer Roadmap for the rest of ’08 which, amongst other things, re-re-re-confirms that device(s?) are on the way for Q4 ’08. The bad news: Android 1.0 will not… Read More

  • FCC spills the beans on the new Sony PSP-3001

    FCC spills the beans on the new Sony PSP-3001

    If someone was anticipating an amazingly updated PSP, the PSP-3001 isn’t it. The supposed updates of GPS, 802.11n, Bluetooth, and a mic were nowhere to be found in the PSP-3001 FCC report. So after all the hype, it certainly seems the new PSP-3001 is just a simple hardware refresh. Perhaps meant to keep hackers on their toes and challenge them to crack the new hardware. At least we… Read More

  • Leopard 10.5.3 update works just fine, cures babies of cancer, feeds the homeless, protects you while you sleep

    Leopard 10.5.3 update works just fine, cures babies of cancer, feeds the homeless, protects you while you sleep

    I’m fortunate. My upgrade to 10.5.3 from 10.5.2 took about 15 minutes and went off without a hitch. Sadly, some people aren’t as lucky. No notable differences jump off the screen, though the fix to Spaces is quite nice. Before, if I had two windows from the same app — Say, Firefox — in two different spaces, a click on the Dock icon would take me back to the first one, no… Read More

    This is a very long and interesting list of possible updates that may or may not show up with the spring update for the Xbox 360. Most of them are pretty meh, but a few are quite intriguing. One particular option lends support to the rumor that Microsoft is working on a Wii-like controller, but who really knows what “Calibration options for motion sensor devices” means. Isn’t the… Read More
