Demos at trade shows can be, and sometimes are, nothing more than smoke and mirrors. You see enough of them and often times you take everything you see with a mountain of salt. Not the kosher kind, either. So, it's totally refreshing when you see a real live demo that's not only convincing, but real. Shocking, isn't it? The Taser folks actually tased a..... [ read more ]

I'm bias. I not only like the folks at Other World Computing, but I've bought stuff from them before and love it. The stuff I got, I still use on a regular basis. Besides offering Mac accessories, storage and generally everything you'd need to upgrade your Mac/PC (but specifically for Mac), OWC offers super nice and easy to interact with..... [ read more ]

We finally got a few iPads and promptly gave them away. Our team, purely for karma, "donated" them to our Beijing based web-team. The line to get one in Beijing is long. There's an industry of "iPad" buyers who charge you a cool USD $1,000 to wait in line and get one for you. Some prices are reported as high as $,1500 USD. You can get on in certain stores for around $700-$800. For the..... [ read more ]

Don't let the picture mislead you, there are no rumors signaling new iMac hardware tomorrow. The swing-armed iMac, just happens to be my favorite iMac design right next to the jelly-bean colored original iMacs of old. Today, we're expecting a flood of Mac news, so we're saving some space for it. iPod's aside, the rumor mill is churning over Apple TV upgrades tomorrow. The much publicized..... [ read more ]

New iPods are scheduled to be announced by Apple today and we decided to pool together for one big gigantic rumor round-up. As usual, some of these Apple related rumors are far flung, friggin' crazy larks of wishful geeky imagination. Others are much more realistic. Still, it's tons of fun gathering the obscure to the well publicized rumors. Before we jump in, let's make one thing clear. ..... [ read more ]

Surprise! New iPod Touches are just around the weekend. News breaking that Apple's scheduled to release these next week. I was excited as my iPod Touch is way overdue for an upgrade, but everyone else around here let out a simultaneous "meh" at the news. Apple's fallen into a bit of predictable pattern as far as iPod/iPod Touches are concerned. They always come in September and iPod..... [ read more ]

My contract with ATT is up at the end of October. I could've renewed a long while ago, but I haven't been too happy with my iPhone service lately. 3G coverage has been spotty at best and I hate those pesky dropped calls I keep getting. Nothing gets me going more when my friends on Verizon can make calls standing in the same spot, when I have no bars. Maybe a few other things, but not a..... [ read more ]

iPhone rumors broke loose yesterday like a competitive eater at Vegas buffet. Craziness doesn't even begin to describe the unbridled fury and pace with the rumors spread. The short of it? Apple's ordering up CDMA chips from Qualcomm for Verizon's own iPhone and production is ramping right now. Adding to the fire is even a scheduled release date: January 2011, which is a mere few months..... [ read more ]
