  • Helio Ocean Drops May 21st

    This could be my next phone unless the Blackberry 8320 comes out first or I’ll just get both. Anyways, the BGR has insider info on the Helio Ocean, which I think could be the company’s saving grace. All fingers point to a May 21st launch date with the lucky few getting their hands on one up to a week earlier. Start drooling, folks, this don’t call it a phone will rock your… Read More

  • Mother's Day Gift Idea From Best Buy

    If you don’t want to put any time or effort into your Mom’s present or you missed a chance to win the Pink Zune we gave away then Best Buy has exactly what you’re looking for. As an in-store special you can get a gift wrapped pink or silver 4GB iPod Nano with chocolate for $214.99. This should be a last resort since I’m telling you well ahead of time that… Read More

  • Nintendo Hates Korea, US Could Be Next

    Nintendo officially hates Korea. The Japanese game maker made it official by threatening Korean websites who allow illegal downloading of copyrighted materials. Tougher legal action will be taken against the piracy of consoles and games because of the massive losses the company seems to be taking. Yeah, whatever. This should be a stern warning to all countries because we could be… Read More

  • HP Enters Gaming Notebook Market

    HP will soon be entering the gaming notebook market and things are looking up with the Pavilion HDX. The 20-inch laptop is more of a portable desktop and at 12 lbs you’ll thank HP for implementing a handle. What makes the Pavilion HDX even better is the Windows Media Center remote dock that sits unabashed to the left of the keyboard. Read More

  • Halo 3: Racist Edition

    This has to be the funniest thing I have ever read. I know the X button is the equipment button, but this is too funny. According to the Game Rag, the X button will ‘deploy racist or homophobic comments regarding teammates or opponents.’ Racism isn’t funny, but this is down right hilarious. Read More

  • Twitter Goes Mobile

    I’ve played with Twitter here and there, but it hasn’t had a huge or profound impact on my life so my account sits and waits. Twitter finally launching a mobile site might make me change my mind though. Not that the SMS/texting was affecting me in anyway since I have unlimited, but it was still a nuisance in my book. In any case, if you enjoy twittering and wish it could be any… Read More

  • Patent Monkey: Verizon Voice Activated Call Routing, Makes Mom Happy

    , Verizon revealed a means for using not only time for call routing it currently offers, but also a name recognition routing system. Knowing your Mom wants to be sure you are safe, this is just the technology to be sure she reaches you. Read More

  • BenQ Tells You How Fat You Are

    This is by far the strangest convergence device I’ve ever seen/read about. I’d consider myself a health freak, but BenQ seems to be some sort of psychopathic healthy monster. Do consumers really want to measure their body fat while waiting for the bus or after they’ve eaten a Big Mac (I know this won’t actually be applicable)? BenQ has done their homework on how to… Read More

  • Sneak Peek: Asus Bearlake Motherboards

    Intel’s newest chipset, code name Bearlake, is still a few weeks away from an actual launch, but we’ve got some specs that you might find handy in case you’re pondering a new desktop in the near future. The P35 chipset is built on one of the 65nm process nodes and will undoubtedly hit the ground running on Core 2 microprocessors that require a 1,333MHz front side bus. The… Read More

  • Microsoft DigiDesk Hands On

  • Game Over, Mario…RIP

    <div class="center" OMG, OMG, OMG!!! Poor Mario couldn’t control his mushroom addiction and he goes on a drug induced rampage through Brooklyn and…I can’t, it’s too painful. This is what happens when you’re on your last life and the drugs take over. Don’t do drugs, kids. Read More

  • Fujitsu Santa Rosa Laptops Coming Soon

    Some recently released documents on the FCC site have shed new light on the new Santa Rosa-based Fujitsu laptops, but it doesn’t have all the bells and whistles you’d expect. The E-series lifebook gets an upgrade ala E8410/8490 with a Core 2 Duo T7700 2.40 GHz chip and 15.4-inch WUXGA/WSXGA or WXGA display. The A6020 laptop gets an upgrade with the same specs and is now the A6030. Read More

  • Major Zune Announcement on Monday!

    Big news coming out of iLounge about a new Zune being announced on Monday. That’s not a typo, folks. I did say iLounge. Details about what might be coming out of Redmond are skimp, but rumors have been going around about a flash-based Zune for some time. Nothing to lose sleep over, but we’ll keep our ears to ground anyway. New Zune on Monday? [iLounge] Read More

  • Portable DirecTV Unit Available Now; Includes Power, TV

    I live in an apartment. It is a nice apartment with great views of most of Seattle, from the Downtown all the way up to the U-District and even the Freemont Bridge. Sadly, like many apartment dwellers, I’m limited to cable TV. My building has strict rules against DirecTV-style mini dishes. The manager says it’s about decor, we think it’s more to do with the heft discount… Read More

  • Fujitsu Siemens Pocket LOOX N100 Review

    Smaller, lighter, better, is the mantra for the new category of ultra portable multi-function GPS devices. While portable GPS systems aren’t new, manufacturers are expanding the category by cramming in new features. Fujitsu Siemens Pocket LOOX N100 certainly fits that bill, if only somewhat. The difficulty is providing a feature-set that appeals to a broad audience and a user interface… Read More

  • Windows Media 6 Upgrade Now Available for T-Mobile Dashers

    Just a quick note: If you use a T-Mobile Dash you should head over to the T-Mobile WM Upgrade page and download the free Windows Mobile 6 package. While it doesn’t fix all of WinMo’s issues (it’s still Windows), it goes a long way to make it more usable and intuitive. And it’s free. We like free. Make sure to do a sync and a complete back up of your Dash, because… Read More
