  • Google and AT&T get in hissy fit over user privacy

  • Averatec to sell rebranded MSI Wind in September

    Remember Averatec? I sure do. I’ve owned two Averatec computers. One when the company used to be Sotec and another when it used to be Averatec.

  • Nokia requiring their suppliers to be AMOLED-ready?

    Citing oh-so-ambiguous industry sources, Digitimes is reporting that Nokia may be requiring its display suppliers to be capable of pushing out AMOLED panels.

  • XBOX 360's 'Braid' developer banking on game sales

    The utter nostalgic simplicity of Braid is making the indie developer swim in a lot of coin.

Who knows how much he’s getting after Microsoft’s pimp tax but it’s got to be enough to cover his rent.  So what are you waiting for, 55,000 fellow XBOX 360… Read More

  • GotApps Brings Alerts To Apple's App Store

    One of the biggest problems with Apple’s still-fledgling App Store is that there’s no efficient way to sift through new applications. While users can view a list of the most recently uploaded apps, the list can be overwhelming and unorganized.

  • Sony's Eyetoy swordfighting game to battle Wii's MotionPlus to the death

    Although the swordfighting game in Wii Sports Resort is cartoonish and non-decapitatory, it’s still probably the most serious swordfighting game in the business.

  • New Panasonic VIERA plasma said to have 42 year half-life

    So if a Panasonic VIERA plasma’s screen has a half-life of 42-years, that states that the screen will loss all it’s brightness in 84-years. Or 2093. Or when George Bush VI takes office. Or when we might finally have flying cars. Or when…you get the idea. CEPro presents an interesting question on this claim, “Will you die before your TV?” Hmmm. So even if the… Read More

  • The Samsung Eco E200 – it's (kinda) made of corn!

    Fine – it’s made of bioplastic, which is derived from corn. Same thing, right? Plus, it’s better than the other title I was considering: “The Samsung Eco E200 – it’s corny!” While the definition of bioplastic varies widely depending on who you’re talking to, the important part is that it’s a material made (at least partially) of some sort… Read More

  • Intel re-brands Centrino Atom to just Atom

    Intel is re-branding their Centrino Atom line, shortening the name to simply Atom.
