• Samsung X460 is looking pretty good so far

    I’ve come to the sad realization that I find business laptops more appealing than consumer laptops now. But this is the life I’ve been dealt, and life is like a hot air balloon — you can move up and down, but not side to side or back in time. So it’s with great interest that I leer at the Samsung X460, a 14.1-inch notebook that just barely pops above the four-pound mark… Read More

  • Video: Rock Band developers aren't very good at playing Rock Band

    This is a silly, nigh inaudible video of some Harmonix developers playing Rock Band. They mostly stink, I think—I’m not a Rock Band or Guitar Hero connoisseur—but as Kotaku points out, it’s hard to fault Harmonix completely. First of all, this video was taken at the Nottingham GameCity3 event, whatever that was—it’s fair to assume that they all had a few… Read More

  • MS: China not important due to piracy

    Steve Ballmer said that Microsoft doesn’t find China “important” due to its government’s lack of support in fighting software piracy.

  • Hitachi also announces a 500GB 2.5-inch hard drive

    What happens when two companies announce almost the exact same product on the same day, each company making claims that it’s got the “first” of certain features? Nothing much, I guess. It’s sort of amusing if you’re into poking holes in techno-jargon. Today Fujitsu announced a 500GB notebook drive, as did Hitachi. Hitachi promises 1.4W read/write power… Read More

  • iPhone Exploit May Undermine App Store Security, Lets Devs Update And Run Arbitrary Code

    We have stumbled across a flaw in iPhone security that allows third party developers to update and execute arbitrary code from their applications at will, totally circumventing Apple’s App Store approval process. Normally, applications (and all of their updates) have to go through a lengthy review process before they’re posted to the App Store, as Apple combs through them to… Read More

  • Nokia E63 review units show up before it’s even announced

    In a move that’s a bit removed from the standard procedure we’ve come to know from Nokia (and every other mobile company, for that matter), the Nokia E63 has made its first authorized debut by way of review units shipped out from Nokia’s WOM World blogger relations group. That’s right: the device hasn’t even been announced yet, and a few lucky bloggers out there… Read More

  • Live! with Regis and Kelly going HD on January 5th, 2009

    Just what every housewife has been asking for, Regis and Kelly is going high definition on January 5th, 2009.

  • The Cotsakos Touch: Me-Three Social Network Moli Implodes

    Christos Cotsakos has the opposite of the Midas touch. Everything he touches seems only to implode. This happened to E-Trade back in 2000-2002 when he was the CEO. Cotsakos was famously replaced after enriching himself with a $78 million pay package during a year the stock tanked 53 percent. He had to give back some of that money, but kept enough to live lavishly in Florida and pour millions… Read More
