11/02/2009, Many of you might have iPod speakers, they are convenient and sometimes, the sound might even be good, but it’s rarely “big”. Check out the Wall of Sound (WOS) by Brothers. It has 28 elements and looks ridiculously oversized next to that iPod nano. The thing is: the price is oversized too: $4495. [thx Per]
11/02/2009, Have some time on your hands and want to do something special with your iMac? Check out this hack where the 24″ iMac’s hard drive has been removed, replaced instead with a smaller and much faster SSD to complement the Drobo which is used for external storage. Installation was a snap, although some adjustments were required to fit the 2.5″ drive into space meant for a 3.5″ drive. The end […]
11/02/2009, Over the past couple of years, computing enthusiasts have installed the Apple OS X operating system on many Atom-powered netbooks, but it looks as though Apple is fed up with that kind of tinkering. Apparently, among the many changes in OS X 10.6.2, one of them stands out – it will no longer enable the operating system to function with various netbooks. No idea on whether this is intentional on […]
11/01/2009, Will robots rule the world in the near future? Perhaps, but maybe not. They’d make excellent gaming companions though as you check out this robot who is slamming note after note accurately on Rock Band for the iPhone. Can you say “cheat”?
10/29/2009, A US patent filing that was published today point towards research done by Apple that concerns a wireless headset with its own media playback support. This would mean the wireless headset functions as a companion for an iPhone or similar device, but is also full well capable of playing music from storage built right into the earphones themselves. Features include basic music controls and a display, where the inclusion of […]
10/29/2009, Word has it that Apple’s recently unveiled Magic Mouse has started to ship, which means that Apple has met the goal of shipping it at the end of this month. For customers who prefer to walk into retail stores and pick one up, you’re out of luck since there isn’t the sight of any of these Magic Mice just yet – perhaps they’re wearing a cloak of invisibility? To go […]
10/28/2009, Apple might ends its exclusive carrier agreement with AT&T in 2010, which would also mean the end of a speculated $450 carrier subsidy for the iPhone. Apparently, this scenario would likely happen when Apple works hand in hand with Verizon, where it might command a $300 carrier subsidy thereabouts although initial losses can be stemmed and made up for in volume with Verizon likely to move around 14 million iPhones […]
10/26/2009, Too bad this generosity on their part does not extend to other lines save for the MacBook Pro line, which we did mention that it will probably be refreshed pretty soon since it was skipped during the last round of updates. High end MacBook Pro configurations have dropped by up to $1,000 thereabouts according to vigilant price watchers, so those who don’t mind purchasing solid working notebooks without worrying about […]
10/26/2009, How many people still use their Mini DV tapes, assuming the gear they own still work? For those who have more Mini DV tapes that they can shake a stick at, why not use some of the spoilt ones’ casing to function as an impromptu iPhone stand? Cheap and tacky, but it does get the job done. Great recycling idea – now if only someone could add some color and […]
10/26/2009, The blackra1n jailbreak utility has been updated, where the RC2 update is capable of jailbreaking factory-fresh iPhone 3GS’ that already come with iPhone OS 3.1.2 by Apple without any worries, although this can only be done via a “tethered jailbreak” method. Among the more interesting things you can expect from the blackra1n RC2 release would be :- Fixed 3G issues Tethered jailbreak for factory-fresh iPhone 3GS’s and new out-of-the-box iPod […]
10/26/2009, Slowly but surely, the iPhone initial exclusive deals with select carriers around the world is fading away. Carriers have taken notice that an iPhone deal will boost their data usage (and their bottom-line), and for Apple, it’s a logical step to grab market share more rapidly than waiting (or hoping) that users will switch networks. Apple needs this to keep the pace at which iPhone has been growing.
10/26/2009, Bill Keller of the NY Times has dropped the bomb by mentioning the upcoming Apple Slate tablet computer. Here’s what he says in his speech to the digital group at the New York Times: Sixth, we need to figure out the right journalistic product to deliver to mobile platforms. I’m hoping we can get the newsroom more actively involved in delivering our best journalistic product.. … times reader, iPhone apps, […]
10/26/2009, Halloween’s just around the corner, and you might want to let the world know of your geek cred with the iPhone costume. LCD TVs on the front will display content from iPhones which are stashed away onthe top. You’ll need to be pretty beefed up if you want to wear this since it tips the scales at 85 pounds alongside a car battery that provides the necessary juice to power […]
10/25/2009, It seems that new MacBook Pro models could be unveiled in the near future if examination of the configuration files found within the latest build of OS X proved correct, where the 10C531 build of the 10.6.2 update mentioned in its configuration files the MacBook Pro 6.1 and the MacBook Pro 6.1b. After all, current MacBook Pro models come with a 5.(x) designation, spanning 5.1 through 5.5. What do you […]
