    DailyFill, a gossip site in the same vein as TMZ and Perez Hilton, is off to an impressive start.

  • Misleading ‘Vista Capable’ label could cost Microsoft $8.5 billion

    Here’s a tip: next time your company creates a snazzy marketing slogan make sure it isn’t misleading. Microsoft may be liable to the tune of $8.5 billion as a result of so many people buying “Vista Capable” PCs in the run up to Vista’s release in January, 2007. The problem is that, to the average person, “Vista Capable” means, “Hey, I can run… Read More

  • T-Mobile stores in 3G-less regions to stock the G1 starting tomorrow

    Since the G1’s launch way back in October, the only folks who could walk into a T-Mobile retail store and walk out with Android in their pocket were those who lived in an area covered by T-Mo’s (still fairly limited) 3G network.

  • iPhone App Review: RepairPal

    RepairPal, which hit the App Store yesterday, is the iPhone front-end for repairpal.com, a site aimed at helping its users determine reasonable prices for car repairs and providing them with locations of reputable repair shops in their areas. I recently had new tires put on my 2001 Accord and paid $75 for an alignment, so I thought I’d use RepairPal to see if those double-talking weasels… Read More
