Posted in Accessories by Nino Marchetti on July 14th, 2008

Designed for Dell

Dell, thinking perhaps people have enough interest in its computers to want to accessorize them, teamed up last week with a number of accessories manufacturers to debut its Designed for Dell line up. Seven manufacturers are currently designing Dell products in this new category.

Dell specifically has enlisted the help of Belkin, Built, Creative Labs, Iomega, Logitech, Swiss Gear and Targus. Products being developed include backpacks, messenger cases, computer sleeves, cargo bags, portfolios, headphones, speakers, portable hard drives and mice.

Microsoft wants you to visit “Albany,” aka, HELL

Posted in Software by Nino Marchetti on April 19th, 2008

Albany The Egg building

A rather strange landmark of the Albany, New York skyline is The Egg, a local performing arts venue. This oddly designed building could well be an omen for Microsoft’s freshly announced “Albany” subscription service – a big, fat laid egg.

Albany, as discussed by Microsoft product manager Bryson Gordon, will be an all you can eat service for consumers which gives them all the Microsoft goodness they can handle under one desktop. You can, for x amount of dollars, gain access to Office Home and Student 2007, Windows Live OneCare and Windows Live Mail, Messenger and Photo Gallery. This is on top of security updates and the like.

TouchMan emotion cell phone concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on April 11th, 2008

TouchMan emotion cell phone concept
The TouchMan cellphone concept is interesting because it can actually become a piece of furniture that allows you to communicate in a more personal way with others. That’s because the device allows for the visual sharing of emotions. Think of it as a combination screensaver, instant messenger and…aquarium.

That’s right, you can watch your contacts like fishes in an aquarium on the touchscreen. They would change color and activity according to their current moods and availability. Very bizarre indeed, but it has a lot of potential. The docking station will charge the main station and the cellphone at the same time, and when the cellphone is disconnected, the main device goes into a sleep mode.

PSP firmware 3.90 now available with Skype

Posted in News,PSP by Darrin Olson on January 30th, 2008

Sony PSP 3.90 firmware update with SkypeWe’ve been checking daily for that next firmware update we told you about earlier this month that is to include Skype VoIP calling, and looks like it hit today. Version 3.90 is available for download from the Network Update menu on the PSP and will bring support for more PlayStation Network titles to the PSP along with the ability to make and receive free Skype calls on your Playstation Portable. The announcement comes today from Sony Europe but the update appears to be available for download here in the U.S. as well.

Unfortunately this feature is available only on the newer, slim PSP 2000 models and will require you to get a PSP headset and PSP remote control or Go! Cam to operate the Skype features. The 3.90 firmware with Skype lets you make free internet calls through the PSP Wi-Fi connection much like you would from a computer and will even let you setup a new Skype account on the PSP. If you have some Skype credit you can also make SkypeOut calls to landlines for a fee.

SPOT satellite tracker saves your behind from bears

Posted in GPS,Outdoors by Nino Marchetti on November 1st, 2007

SPOTLet’s face the facts – you’re lost deep in the woods after going out on a hike to get photos of the elusive Bigfoot. You can’t find your way out and that big bear staring at you and salivating isn’t helping matters. As you rapidly climb a tree, you remember you can summon help with SPOT, the self-described world’s first satellite messenger. This aid to the lost hiker is priced at around $170 plus service fees.

The SPOT takes the form of a portable device which is designed to be waterproof as well as to withstand the outdoors in general. It’s reportedly relatively easy to use by pressing one of several buttons to, for example, transmit a user’s exact location and message to a 9-1-1 emergency call center in times of need. You can also send standard messages to family or others to request help or just let others track you via a Web service which uses GPS coordinates and Google Maps technology.

Posted in HTC,Mobile Phones,T-Mobile by Darrin Olson on October 29th, 2007

T-Mobile Shadow slider-style mobile phoneToday T-Mobile has announced the launch of the new Shadow mobile phone from HTC. This is the first of a number of Shadow-branded phones that T-Mobile has planned for the future as devices that are “designed for people who have lives beyond work.”, according to Robert Dotson, president and CEO of T-Mobile USA. The device runs on an enhanced version of Windows Mobile 6 which hides a lot of the usually interface from Windows Mobile and replaces it with custom menus and navigation. According to T-Mobile the enhanced interface makes the Shadow more intuitive and easier to use.

Aside from this slider looking just plain good, it also features a spin navigation wheel, 2.6″ display (not a touchscreen), microSD memory expansion slot, a full QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, 2.0 megapixel camera with video capture, media player for music and video, Wi-Fi and EDGE high speed data. The Shadow also has an enhanced version of T-Mobiles myFaves where users can call, email, text, send a picture, send a video or send a voice note easily from the myFaves screen. It even has some instant messaging clients built in, including Windows Live Messenger, AOL IM, Yahoo Messenger and ICQ.

Availabot gives you a physical IM status

Posted in Concepts,Humor,USB by Reuben Drake on October 26th, 2007

Availabot shows when your IM friend is available online.This funny little USB peripheral called the Availabot is designed to work in conjunction with the instant messenger on your computer. It stands on a little marshmallow looking stand that connects via USB to your computer and gives you a physical representation of the availability of your friends on your IM application, laying flaccid when the contact is gone, and quickly standing upright when the contact is available.

The idea is pretty interesting (and funny) and the Availabots are completely customizable in the profile they store and in how they look. You can use as many of them at a time as you would like to dedicate a USB port for. The puppets currently work with iChat on Mac OS X 10.4 but the company has plans to extend them to other IM programs on the Mac and eventually Windows.

HP iPAQ 610 Business NavigatorHP unleashed another new mobile phone along side the iPAQ 914, named the iPAQ 610 Business Navigator. Unlike its 900 series sibling the 610 features a numeric keypad instead of the full QWERTY keyboard, but has many of the same features along with a little larger display.

An integrated scroll wheel in the keypad of the iPAQ 610 is a slick feature that makes navigating the menus a little easier, and seeing the content won’t be bad either on a decent-sized 2.8-inch touchscreen. It’s a global 3G and Quad-band mobile phone that also includes Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) and an integrated GPS and Bluetooth 2.0.
