  • Rocketman jumps from plane with jet-pack wings

    There are only a few things more exciting than being a technology blogger, like jumping out of an airplane at 7,500 feet above the Swiss Alps strapped into rocket-powered jet wings. That’s what Yves Rossy of Switzerland just did. Read More

  • Screenshot of T-Mobile's Sidekick Gecko browser [Update]

    Sort of a disappointment, but at least we know it’s out there. Doesn’t look much different than what’s on the LX right now. More Gecko details here. Totally fake! Read More

  • Will iPhone 2 get Intel's Atom? Ja!

    My German is a bit rusty, but apparently this is someone’s interpretation of what the iPhone 2 will look like. It also claims that it will run Intel’s Atom processor, which is logical. What’s really neat is a claim that the iPhone will have a larger screen, with resolution up to full 480p. While not much in the home theater world, it’s pretty badass for a PMP. How much… Read More

  • Michael Arrington gets a full hands on with the Touchwall

  • Confirmed: Comcast Bought Plaxo, Deal Closed Today

    The rumors were accurate: Comcast will announce their acquisition of social contact list Plaxo today. Financial terms are not being disclosed, but the purchase price is between $150 and $170 million. Plaxo, which was founded in 2002, has raised just under $30 million in venture capital. Plaxo has been the subject of considerable acquisition rumors lately, with both Google and Facebook named… Read More

  • IBM's Cognos now available through your BlackBerry

    This service, at least to me, seems to be geared towards a small market of the population, but I’m sure those of you who do you use Cognos will be happy to know that you’ll be able to access the IBM software from your BlackBerry. For those not in the know, Cognos allows your minions to “view real-time analytics on the state of your business.” IBM has also released… Read More

  • $150 E Ink ebook reader to ship in June

    Astak is launching a $150 ebook reader that supports TXT, PDF, and HTML files. It should be available next month and will feature an 800×600 pixel screen with SD memory expansion and options like Wi-Fi and touchscreen input in more expensive models. This basically looks like a rebadged OEM product, so I’m not going to recommend it over a Kindle — heck, the company specializes… Read More

  • Robot overlords taking to classical music

    In the graphic novella Robota by Orson Scott Card and Doug Chiang, the robots are invented by man, then take over science, and, when they develop a love of art, decide to end humanity, Skynet style. Fortunately, our creations have yet to have anything to do with art, meaning for the time being we’re safe. Wait, I just got a link here that Asimo, Honda’s prototype bi-pedal future… Read More

  • Microsoft's Kim: Xbox still has four years of life, and it's not all about Blu-ray

    Stopping short of saying Blu-ray is coming to the Xbox 360 (hurry up, guys), Microsoft Games Studio’s head Shane Kim said that the Xbox 360 is expected to have a seven-year lifespan. That gives us about 4 years left on the console before we see a new Xbox. Kim was talking about the “long tail” expected of the 360, and it was noted that the PS3 has an expected 10 year tail.

  • BlackBerry Bold to ship with iTunes syncing software

  • CrunchDeals: AT&T offers up refurbished iPhones, tells employees to limit one per customer

    The headline is understandably a bit misleading, but I’ll clarify here. A new batch of refurbished 8GB and 16GB iPhones has arrived at AT&T’s online store for $249 and $349, respectively. On another note, the BGR received an internal AT&T memo stating that customers are only allowed one iPhone. May 14, 2008

  • Samsung readies the first 240Hz LCDs

    Samsung’s readying a display that will show video at 240Hz, twice as fast as the best displays we saw at CES this year. It’s called “Blue Phase” technology, and if it goes mainstream, your next HDTV will look just amazing. The Hertz rating is like the refresh rate of CRTs, but isn’t quite the same. An LCD has an active, progressive image. The hertz is a measure of… Read More

  • AT&T plans to quintuple 3G speeds in 2009

    Apparently, AT&T has some advancements planned for its networks that will raise the top speed of their 3G network to 20 megabits/second. Right now it’s at about 3.6Mbit, so that’s quite a jump. They’re being coy about the actual changes, which makes me suspicious. They’re already doubling the speed with a software update, they say, and the big jump to 20Mbit… Read More

  • Canon's yet to be released DSLR leaked in latest firmware?

    Seems like firmware updates are leaking quite a bit of info camera companies are trying to keep tight lids on lately. It’s still unconfirmed but Nikon could have a 24.4-megapixel DSLR on the way if the strings found in the D3 firmware update are to be believed. And it appears that the same thing has happened with the latest round of updates from Canon. This, too, is based on conjecture… Read More

  • Mozilla CEO John Lilly Reveals More Details On Stealth Data Project

    Mozilla CEO John Lilly revealed more details of their stealth Data project today, which we first reported here. In a blog post, he says “data is one of the most important pieces to faciliate understanding (and innovation), and is also one of the most under-explored areas of the modern web.” He also says that Mozilla has two early projects that touch on the idea – Spectator… Read More

Of course your blender is going to obliterate a copy of GTA IV. Get over it and think of something new. Read More

  • Rumor of Duh: Next-gen Xbox will let you keep your gamertag, achievements, etc.

    Sometimes we come across rumors that are kind of no-brainers, things you know are pretty damned likely, such as this one from Joystiq claiming that the next version of the Xbox, due a few years out, will allow you to keep your XBL gamer tag, achievements, and other personalized content when you upgrade. Microsoft would be foolish not to do this, as the stuff is all XML based and it would be… Read More
