  • LG Cuts Plasma TV Production, Focuses On Smaller Sizes

    There’s something rotten in the state of LG. It seems the Korean manufacturer is having some trouble offloading its plasma TVs, with sales last February down some $35 million compared to the previous year.

  • Help Key: Taking the 802.11n Plunge

  • Blame it on the (lack of) Media

    It wasn’t the $600 price point or the lack of systems at launch that kept Sony’s PlayStation 3 from becoming a smash hit. Not according to Sony Computer Entertainment America anyway. The company is blaming poor sales of the PS3 on the media – or more accurately the lack of media.

  • Europe To Get The Shaft on 80GB PS3

    Sony announced that Korea will be getting the 80GB PS3 next month, but Europe will not be shown the same love.

  • LG Wine Phone Has Nothing To Do With Wine, Is Entry Level

    It’s either a phone made for drunks or for people who pretend they’re fancy, like our very own John here. It’s the LG Wine phone (or the LG-SV300) and, aside from the picture of a wine bottle and glass on the phone’s screen, I cannot figure out why it’s called the Wine. The Prada phone makes sense, as does the Shine, and the Chocolate I can understand to a point… Read More

    At a “recent press event”, a photographer managed to snap some pictures of the rumored watermelon-colored Zune. While a new colored Zune is about exciting as Bran Oats coming out in an exciting new off-brown color, what’s on the inside is the important thing to keep in mind. Unfortunately, this is just the same old Zune, in a boring, ugly new color. Microsoft apparently… Read More
