  • Twitter Just Made Its Email Notifications Much More Useful

    Twitter has just rolled out a small, but somewhat meaningful update to the way it sends email notifications. This includes both direct message notifications and new follower notifications.

  • Quick Look: HyperMac, external MacBook battery

    Ah yes, HyperMac, how I’ve pined over you for two whole days and now I have you in my possession. The 60Wh and 150Wh are in our testing lab (re: my office/apt) and we’ll have a review shortly, but just wanted you to see what they looked like in person (images of the 60Wh only). The 60Wh is pretty small and relatively lightweight while the 150Wh is a bit of brick and heavy, but if… Read More

  • MeatCards: Print Your Business Cards On Beef Jerky With A Frickin' Laser Beam

    I’ve made no secret about my disdain for business cards.

  • T-Mobile G1 owners to get Android v1.5 Cupcake update next week (For real this time)

    After a somewhat steady stream of T-Mobile USA customers reported that the Android “Cupcake” update had hit their G1s last week, all went silent. Not everyone had gotten their updates, and it seemed as if the rollout had suddenly stopped.
