    Klipsch has been a big name in the speaker game for years, and I remember the old school ProMedias as being the definitive article when it came to 2.1, and later 5.1, desktop sound. When I first reported the X5s I wasn’t sure they could possibly be much better than the other in-ears I’ve owned and loved. Boy, was I wrong.

Verizon needs to get this BlackBerry out before the holidays as some suits will want to treat themselves to a new CrackBerry as a stocking stuffer. Plus… Read More

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