New MacBook Air gets a teardown

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2010

The folks over at iFixit have torn apart the new 11.6-inch MacBook Air. It’s just what they do. If you are squeamish about your tech being taken apart, then don’t look at the pics. Still, it’s good that they do this, so that you and I don’t have to.

If you don’t have experienced hands, don’t try it. You will void your warranty if you decide to strip down your new MacBook Air. Anyway, if you are itching to discover what they found, just have a click on the link below.

Twitter unveils new website

Posted in twitter by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2010

Twitter fans will love this one. Twitter is trending twitter tonight. Here’s a glimpse at the updated Twitter user interface. It draws heavily from the iPad version of Twitter, giving you a two-column design and making navigation easier. That’s not all. Photo hosting sites like Flickr, TwitPic, Yfrog, and video hosts like Ustream and YouTube will now be able to have their content embedded in a format that’s friendly to both computers and tablets.

An infinite scroll feature will load older updates on the fly instead of having to manually click for them. The updated page is going live tonight as part of a limited preview, so not everyone will see it. Everyone should be able to access the updated site over the next few weeks though.

New Amazon Kindle sold out until September

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Well, that didn’t take long. Amazon only announced the third generation Kindle last week, and started selling it, now it seems that this new lower priced Kindle has been extremely popular as it is now sold out until September. Both the WiFi and 3G models of the new Amazon Kindle are ‘temporarily sold out’ and new orders may not ship until the 4th of September 2010.

Obviously the big draw is the new price. The WiFi only model retails for $139 and a 3G model retails for $189 and the new Kindle is thinner and lighter than the previous model.

New Amazon Kindle Cases are ready

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on August 1st, 2010

Along with new Kindles, come new accessories. Some cases are already showing up for the new Kindle. Both are made of genuine leather and available in a folder-style design with an elastic strap to keep the Kindle safe.

These are lined with soft grey microfiber and since the new Kindle is thinner and lighter, the case is also a little slimmer and easier to carry around. One of these new cases even has a swivel out light allowing you to read in the dark.

Amazon runs out of Kindles ahead of new model

Posted in kindle by Conner Flynn on July 28th, 2010

Today Amazon set some tongues wagging by running out of stock of the six-inch Kindle. In the first shortage since 2009, the reader is listed as unavailable but more interestingly doesn’t have an estimated in-stock date. Shoppers are simply told that they will be e-mailed when Amazon learns more.

It could just be due to the price drop to $189. The Kindle device did see sales spike after the cut. The timing is curious though, since the next-generation Kindle is rumored to be shipping in August. Hopefully the next Kindle will have more in common with the iPad.

New Xbox 360 warns you of impending doom

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2010

The original generation Xbox 360 was plagued with the dreaded Red Ring of Death when it overheated. Now it seems that the newly released version comes with the warning message shown above. Hey, at least the tell you that they made a console with crappy ventilation.

The message should at least stop them from getting flooded with units being sent back for replacements. You modders and DIY enthusiasts may want to drill some extra ventilation holes in that new Xbox.

New Xbox 360 is official at $299, ships today

Posted in Xbox 360 by Conner Flynn on June 14th, 2010

Meet the new Xbox 360. It will launch today for $299. The old Elite will be $249 and the Arcade will drop to $149. The new console looks like a stealth Xbox in glossy black with touch-sensitive buttons. According to Microsoft it’s “whisper quiet,” with one large fan instead of two.

It has integrated 802.11n WiFi, five USB ports, and 250GB of storage on a removable hard drive, though it’s not the same drive as the old console, and older Memory Units won’t work, either. To upgrade you can use a USB-to-Xbox hard drive connector cable to migrate to the new box. What do you think?

Is Apple field testing the next generation iPhone?

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on November 29th, 2009

iphone3g-sbIs Apple field testing the next generation iPhone? Could be. iPhone developer Pandav noticed some usage records of an unreleased iPhone in the iBART app’s analytics. The iPhone that’s listed in the usage logs is iPhone 3.1, which I don’t have to tell you, does not match any current iPhone.

The iPhone 3GS is listed as iPhone 2,1. While it wouldn’t be surprising to see that Apple is busy working on a new iPhone, (There are rumors that Verizon will be getting an iPhone somewhere in2010) is this the one?

New Dragon Backpack

New Dragon BackpackNo the image above does not show a black dragon attacking that man. Nor is it dry-humping his back while he walks on unaware. The man wears the beast willingly. For it is the New Dragon Backpack. The perfect accessory to hold all of your D & D books and dice, WoW stuff etc.

Yes, it’s a backpack that looks like a dragon is humping you, while nuzzling your neck lovingly. For some reason you can even open its mouth to place your cellphone inside.

Posted in Nintendo DSi by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2009

New larger 4-Inch Nintendo DSi coming this year?It’s only been a year since the original DSi launched, and here we are talking about a new one. According to Nikkei there’s a new DSi coming very soon with a 4-inch screen, that would have the same price as the current one.

The larger model DSi will only be seen in Japan later this year and it’s aimed at an older demographic who wants a slightly bigger screen. You know the folks with big buttons on their phones and hearing aids.

New iPhones to go from 4GB to 32GB?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2009

iphone3g-sbAs we approach WWDC ’09, more leaks are leaking. According to Engadget, a “trusted source” says that you will soon have a choice of 4, 8, 16, and 32GB iPhones. The source claims that the iPhones have been approved by the PCS Type Review Certification Board, which certifies models for use with some carriers.

It lends some credence to the rumor that Apple will be releasing two new models. Will this pave the way for a sub-$100 model? As usual, we will know very soon whether or not this rumor is true. It’s looking likely.

New PSP due before Christmas, two thumbsticks

Posted in PSP by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2009

PSP Concept is a slick & sexy sliderWe’ve heard all of the rumors that a new PSP will be arriving with a sliding touchscreen, but now Pocket Gamer says they’ve confirmed it with a developer working on the system. It will be here before Christmas.

The source repeats earlier rumors about the design: Like the touchscreen that will slide open to reveal a D-pad and….two analog thumbsticks. And as we told you before, the UMD will be gone in favor of digital downloads. According to Pocket Gamer it’s more like an iPhone than the last PSP you’ve come to know and love.

Is this what the next iPhone will look like?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2009

Is this what the next iPhone will look like?In all likelihood, yes. A new iPhone is expected to hit this summer, but the big question is, just how much are they going to change the design? Will it be dramatic or subtle? This concept is most likely what we will see. A subtle change in look, while slimming it down to a sexier body. It already has you drooling doesn’t it?

After all, Apple isn’t about to make any radical changes on a device that obviously “ain’t broke”. They’ll change it just enough so that loyal fans will upgrade to replace their current models. It’s what Apple does best. Probably won’t up the specs a whole lot.

New Acer Aspire One is coming

Posted in Acer by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2009

New Acer Aspire One is comingAcer has no plans to rest with the success of its Aspire One netbook. They’re already working hard on a new model that improves on its predecessor. The new model will feature a slimmer chassis and come with an SD memory card slot like the one that first appeared on the 8.9″ model.

There can be only one reason for the slimmer chassis: an SSD instead of a hard drive. The presence of the Windows key on the keyboard suggests the new Aspire One will run XP, though a Linux version is likely.
