  • So, how about those Apple Mac Mini updates?

    Giz makes a good point about the Mac Mini update: the 1GB and 200GB upgrade on the “base” $599 Mac Mini costs a mean $200, a bit of overkill for what amounts to a meager boost in storage and memory. Heck, 4GB of Kingston Mac Mini memory costs $44. It might not work on these newer models, but who cares? Memory and hard drive space are cheap. Read More

  • Rumor: Mac Mini getting a makeover next week

    Time to throw away your old Mac Minis, friends, because new ones are coming next week. TUAW has on good authority (read “some guy told them”) that the new minis will have SATA optical drives that can be replaced with hard drives and that they will look more like the MacBooks with sexier styling and black and aluminum accents.

  • Quick look at the 2.2 iPhone firmware


    I took some shots of 2.2 in action. The walking directions would have been great for the past two weeks – I’ve had so much trouble using car-based GPS in walking/biking cities. Streetview is also great for cities like New York but it’s very limited right now – there was no information for Paris, for example. The podcast download is also really nice to have. An… Read More

  • Apple TV 2.3 firmware now available

    Remember your Apple TV? That thing next to the TiVo? It’s ready for its upgrade. The improvements are very minor but it now supports third-party remote control learning and AirTunes streaming to other audio outputs including Airport Express speakers as well as other Apple TVs. You should be able to download the new firmware in Settings. Read More

  • Google sends out Android update RC30 – blocks ‘jailbreak’

    While a significant chunk of G1 owners still await the RC29 update that started rolling out a few days ago, Google has already queued up another one. While people generally welcome updates with open arms, this ones got a few folks upset. Last week, an eagle-eyed tinkerer realized that you could gain root access to the G1 by using telnetd, essentially “jailbreaking” it. Now… Read More

  • Google Maps for Mobile gets Street View, walking directions

    The Google Maps for Mobile team pushed a new version of their application today, with two hugely awesome features packed inside. They’ve added support for Street View, which allows you to get a pedestrian’s-eye view of any street Google has cruised down with their panoramic-shootin’ super car. It’s a feature that has been around for quite some time on the desktop… Read More

  • Rock Band update hitting Xbox 360 today, PS3 soon

    Looks like an update for Rock Band will be available for Xbox 360 owners today. The PS3 update “will follow and we’ll let you know when we have an idea when it will drop,” according to Harmonix. The patch fixes some scoring wonkinesss and, perhaps more importantly, will allow you to export your Rock Band songs to Rock Band 2. It was unclear which songs would NOT be able to… Read More

  • iPhone 2.0.1 firmware now out

    No massive changes reported but it appears that the 249.2MB 2.0.1 firmware is live and ready to install. The release coincides with an iTunes update and some are reporting some improvements in speed and performance. I’m updating now and will keep you apprised. The update is pretty meh. It improves backup speed and I believe it gives worms to ex-girlfriends. UPDATE – It appears to… Read More

  • Apple readying Mac OS X 10.5.5 update for developers

    You hear that rumbling noise, folks? That’s the OS X 10.5.5 train, and it’s a comin’. That’s right – and it’s packed with features. What kind of features, you ask? Hell if we know. To be honest, it’s quite possibly just a bunch of bug fixes and security updates. AppleInsider predicts that it’ll include support for the rumored new Mac… Read More

  • Is this the PSP-3000?

    This appears to be the PSP-3000, an updated PSP with built-in mic and a thinner metal ring. While I don’t mind the PSP, I think these constant updates make Sony look a little desperate. While the DS and the DS Lite were quite different and the 1st generation hardware was clearly sub par, they pretty much nailed it on the PSP… not that that helped them sell games. Read More

  • Sony to release fixed PS3 firmware this week

    Last week’s PS3 firmware update left some angry gamers in its wake as reports of jacked up consoles made their way around the internet shortly after Sony made version 2.40 of its PS3 software available for download last Wednesday. The company quickly pulled the problematic update and has now said that version 2.41 will be available “midweek,” according to CVG. While most… Read More
