  • CES 2008 could see launch of yet another pesky format war

    Regular readers will know how much we loathe the Blu-Ray/HD-DVD wars and wish that they, like the War on Terror or the War on Drugs or the War on Baby Seals, would end soon, as there can be no clear victor. That’s why we give a sideways glance at the new format war brewing that could see CES 2008 as the first battlefield — the format for wireless HD content. Not wireless as in… Read More

  • AT&T's list of most downloaded ringtones in 2007 makes me sad

    Society reaches a new low as the list of the top ten downloaded ringtones of 2007 on the AT&T network reads like a who’s who of smelly, no-talent ass-music. The only thing worse than this list is the fact that people paid $2.49 each to download these. This would be the iTunes playlist in the first ring of hell for me. 1. Shop Boyz – "Party Like a Rockstar"
    2. Read More

  • $30 price drop for Xbox 360 Wireless Steering Wheel, now $99

    Microsoft, in the true spirit of Christmas, has slashed the price of its wireless steering wheel for the Xbox 360 by $30, bringing it to $99. The wheel works with “all of the most popular racing games” for the 360 and, according to IGN, is the wheel to get if you’re “serious about racing.” One does wonder why Microsoft released PGR 4 when it did, pitting it up… Read More

  • More exciting info about the 700MHz spectrum auction

    Well look at that. Chevron throws its hat into the ring for the January 24th 700MHz spectrum auction. Analysts believe this to be because "oil companies and utilities are big wireless users" but you and I both know that Chevron would use the spectrum to unveil its super secret over-the-air alternative energy source that’s been hidden from the public since the Roswell incident… Read More

  • Verizon Updates LG Voyager Firmware

    The LG Voyager’s firmware has been upgraded. Know what doesn’t need to be upgraded? The girl’s pony from the Verizon commercials. I wonder how she’s doing with her new pony, besides being an ungrateful brat that wants a cell phone instead of a pony. She probably asked for both and then just started pouting when she only got a pony. So the pony bites and you’re… Read More

  • Xbox 360 wireless radiations jam your Bluetooth

    This is interesting. It’s almost like an old-fashioned whodunit – but this time it’s the console doing the killing. Some staff at Morrisville State College were noticing a lot of interference in certain places resulting in trouble syncing their Bluetooth headsets. A little investigation that they were being jammed by a mysterious signal covering whole areas of the frequency band. Read More

  • Canadian man gets $85,000 phone bill

    Awwwwwwww dude. That sucks, man. Poor Piotr Staniaszek (not pictured left). He hooked his $10-per-month unlimited mobile browser phone up to his computer and used it for his Internet service and got a big fat bill for $85,000 in the mail. The worst part? Bell Mobility just let him keep racking up the charges. "The thing is, they’ve cut my phone off for being like $100 over. Read More

  • Van Halen, Dave Matthews Band now in ringtone form

    Here’s a tip for bands that don’t make new music any more. If you’re offered to sell your songs as ringtones, do it. It’s one of the last places that most people are still actively (and even happily) overpaying for music. Dave Matthews Band has been crapping out live albums left and right but hasn’t released a new album in over two years and they’re… Read More

  • Wireless USB video coming soon?

    We’re not sure immediately this would be for, but we like it all the same. DisplayLink and Alereon have finished development on their wireless USB monitor system for PCs. Through software and a special adapter, you send your computer’s video through the ether via a USB dongle, which is then reflected on your monitor with a similar VGA/DVI dongle. At somewhere between $150 and… Read More

  • Nokia wants its US market share back

    Remember back when everyone basically had the same cell phone? Those old, brickey Nokias? Well Nokia misses that feeling and wants to claw its way back into the US market again. Its market share here in the states is about 10%, down from 28% five years ago according to the New York Times. Much of the reasoning behind Nokia’s fall from grace has to do with "its refusal to adapt… Read More

  • I want convenience and accountability for Christmas

    I don’t want to play the “peace on Earth, goodwill towards men” card but I would like the following five things, which I think would benefit other people besides just me. 1. Mandatory Online Cancellation Policies If a company lets you sign up for service and manage your account online without talking to anybody, it should be mandatory that they let you cancel the service… Read More

  • Microsoft keyboards' secret radio codes deciphered

    Some fellas over at Dreamlab took it upon themselves to apply a packet sniffer to one of Microsoft’s RF-based wireless keyboards, the Wireless Optical Desktop 1000 and 2000. They found that unlike bluetooth devices, which have pretty strong encryption, the only thing they ran into with the RF keyboard was “a simple XOR mechanism with a single byte of random data” – and… Read More

  • European OQO to get 3.5G HSDPA modem

    The OQO E2 will soon be offered with a nimble 3.5G data connection, according to a report over at UMPC Portal. Official info isn’t available quite yet and what’s been posted already turned out to be under embargo but was mistakenly live-blogged. So there you have it. The E2 is similar to the 02 that’s available here in the states except that it drives on the left side of… Read More

  • So long Motorola CEO Ed Zander, we hardly knew ye

    The time has come to say goodbye to Ed Zander, a dear friend of the CrunchGear family. And by "dear friend" I mean a guy we mentioned six times, were you to search for "Zander" on our site. We’ve had a great ride, huh? Thanks for the memories, Ed. We’ll never forget the RAZR, RAZR2, ROZR, RUZR, RIZR, and all the other great phones whose models names contained… Read More

    The New York Times is reporting that Sprint has said thanks but no thanks to an offer from Providence Equity Partners and South Korea’s SK Telecom which would, in effect, replace Sprint’s management team and infuse $5 billion into the company.
