• Just how does Apple's VoiceOver work?

    Apple is really promoting VoiceOver, a new feature found in the just-announced iPod Shuffle. As you may already know, when VoiceOver is activated, the iPod “says” the name of the currently playing song or playlist. So, when I hit the song I want to hear—this week, that’d probably be “Hardcore Girls (Don Rimini Remix)” by The Count and Sinden—the… Read More

  • Klipsch announces two "recession-proof" in-ears, the Image S4 & S2

  • Tasteless joke lists child for sale on Xbox Live

    How dumb are people? Someone at the weekend put a phony ad on Xbox Live. Advertising what, exactly? Oh, you know, just someone’s child. Yup, a Florida woman’s child was listed as “for sale” by a couple of knuckleheads (presumably this is at least a two-man job: one guy to come up with the idea, and the other to convince him to carry it out). They even included the… Read More

  • Apple to take delivery of 10-inch touchscreens

    Oh, hi. More Apple rumors for you this fine morning. Reuters got word from a secret Wintek employee “who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to talk to the media” that Apple has purchased 10-inch touchscreens. No one else commented, including Wintek, and this story is so convoluted now that I need to go look at some LOLCats. Read More

  • OMG, Apple will burn in hell over latest iPod Shuffle
