    Ambitious Startups Could Signal The Coming Of A Second Space Age

    In late March, the American Geophysical Union announced that the Voyager I space probe became the first man-made object to leave our solar system. Just a few hours later though, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory shot down that claim noting that the tell-tale sign of hitting interstellar space (a “change in the direction of the magnetic field”) hasn’t been detected… Read More

  • Voyager 2 likely suffering from "flipped bit syndrome"

    The Voyager 2 transmission hiccup appears to have been identified. The problem? “A value in a single memory location was changed from a 0 to a 1,” said JPL’s Veronia McGregor. As I’ve said countless times to end users complaining about “computer problems”: computers are all ones and zeroes inside, and who can tell what will happen when a one unexpectedly… Read More

  • They don't make 'em like they used to: Voyager 2 repairs underway

    Our Gadgets of Days Gone By series is over, and it focused pretty much on consumer goods that made our lives more entertaining or more bearable. But there’s an awful lot of technology from decades past still in use today. Take for example the Voyager spacecraft from NASA. Launched more than 30 years ago, Voyager 2 completed its primary mission in 1989 but has continued to provide… Read More

  • Verizon's Voyager gets Visual Voicemail


    Its not just for the iPhone anymore, Verizon Wireless today announced the availability of Visual Voicemail for the Voyager by LG. For those who haven’t seen it, Visual Voice Mail provides a different way to access voicemail; a list of messages is displayed on the screen and users can choose the order in which they want to listen to messages. Users can also delete, reply and forward… Read More

  • LG Voyager coming to AT&T, Sprint


    Why carriers love recycling old models from other carriers is beyond me. Especially when said old models suck so hard like LG’s Voyager. The Vu is a much better device though; it’s not that great, either. However, the Voyager has done commercially well selling over 1.1 million units since November. And now they’re bringing it to AT&T and Sprint or so says an LG… Read More

  • LG Voyager owner's help needed

    I don’t have access to a Voyager at the moment and I’m not sure if this was apart of the firmware upgrade that went out last month. Can any Voyager owners comment? K. Thx. Read More

  • Verizon Updates LG Voyager Firmware

    The LG Voyager’s firmware has been upgraded. Know what doesn’t need to be upgraded? The girl’s pony from the Verizon commercials. I wonder how she’s doing with her new pony, besides being an ungrateful brat that wants a cell phone instead of a pony. She probably asked for both and then just started pouting when she only got a pony. So the pony bites and you’re… Read More

  • LG Voyager review

    As you may recall, I was a bit harsh on the Voyager a while back and I really hate when I have to take things I say back. The Voyager has come a long way since the VX9800 and improves over the enV thanks to the touchscreen. I could go on and bash the Verizon UI, but I’m tired, have no idea what time zone I’m in and it’s just not worth it. Is the Voyager a good phone? Yes. Is… Read More

  • Hands on with the LG Voyager

    The Voyager is the one on the right Well, it’s been a few weeks since I last saw the LG Voyager and I have to admit that it’s way better than I originally thought. Maybe it was the lighting and the lack of time I had with the device, but I sort of like it now. The touchscreen is pretty responsive and it’s way lighter than you’d think considering its size. Expect a… Read More

  • LG Voyager data sheet leaked

    Verizon is really gearing up for what it thinks is the CDMA version of the iPhone – the LG Voyager. Although the device really isn’t much of an iPhone, it’s still very feature-rich with its VCAST Live TV, EV-DO and a touchscreen. So if you’re seeking out the 411 on the Voyager, I present you with this data sheet. Yes, this one. I’d hardly call a 2-megapixel… Read More

  • Rumor: LG Voyager hits November…

    16th? We’ve heard mumblings that the Voyager is dropping on the 18th for about $250 with a possible preorder beginning on the 8th, but we heard from the horse’s mouth that it should drop on the 16th. We’re not sure on the price, but we’re confident on the date. We’ll see how it pans out, though. Read More

  • Beware: The Verizon Voyager will apparently kill the iPhone


    The Voyager is so awesome, your hand will tremble in fear Oh you heard right my friends. You better watch the hell out come this Autumn, ’cause Verizon has a phone coming out that is going to show that iPhone who’s boss. According to Verizon’s Wireless CMO, the Voyager is not only the “best” phone, but it’s also going to “kill the iPhone”. Read More

  • Dork Sells Star-Trek Themed Pad For Mucho Loot

    Face it. Loving Star Trek is about as dorky as a dork can get. But one Star Trek fan had the last laugh when he sold his one bedroom flat for more than five times the market value. Tony Alleyne sold his home that he transformed into the deck of the starship Voyager for a staggering $843,242 or £425,000. As you would imagine, transforming your bachelor pad into a flight deck is not an easy… Read More
