• A new HTC Android phone surfaces on the rumornets


    We know that there are going to be dozens of Android handsets out there within a year, so why shouldn’t they start popping up all over the place? Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that many of these phones will be as exciting as the Hero or Rachel, as this rumored HTC handset shows.

  • Video: If Man Walked on the Moon Today

    Slate.com did a wonderful job creating this video that clearly demonstrates how the TV media would cover the Moon landing if it happened today. You know the routen. First they would cut to a panel of “experts” and then cut to live cams. And of course, there would be reaction from Twitter. The only thing left out is Glenn Beck crying. Read More

  • Probably Not The Palm Pre Chart Roger McNamee Wants To See

  • RSS is the new BetaMax, says Apple sales numbers

    The data from the Apple earnings call illustrates the difficult time RSS will have staving off micromessaging. Most telling was the turf the iPhone took out of iPod sales.

As realtime accelerates, streaming text… Read More

  • Sonic Solutions looking to bring 3D movies to your home, no glasses required

    How badly do you want to watch 3D movies at home? Scale of 1 to 10, let’s say. I’m a 1—I patently have zero interest in 3D movies.

I ask because there’s a company out there, Sonic Solutions, that appears to be ramping up for a major rollout of at-home 3D movies. Read More

  • First Rule Of Apple Earnings Calls: You Do Not Talk About The $99 iPhone

    When Apple announced that it would start selling the iPhone 3G for $99 at this year’s WWDC conference, the room buzzed about the possibility.

  • Foxconn employee interrogated over lost iPhone prototype, suicide ensues [Update]

    So the story goes that a 25-year-old man at Foxconn – where iPhones are born – was to send 16 iPhone prototypes to Apple, but one was lost somewhere.
