This is done because there is demand for the device that allows manufacturers and retailers to offer them at full price, perhaps a bit above intended longer-term price to help recoup R&D efforts. As I said, we all knowRead more
Take a moment and let that picture sink in…it’s amazing, right?

The soon to be released BlackBerry Curve 8520 gets a review over at Phonearena. It looks like this BlackBerry is destined to be an entry level model for T-Mobile (my guess is that it’ll be a freebie within a short time of launch). The screen resolution takes a puzzling step back to 320×240 (both the recent 8900 and Bold haveRead more

Carly Z: There are some moments that make you think the people around you are psychic. I remember sitting in my friend’s dorm room in college studying for a final, when she suddenly stopped, took a looooooooooooong drag on her cigarette, and looked at me with my bright dyed hair and worn out Descendents sweatshirt and said, “Brandeis will suuuuuuuuuuuuuuckRead more

I have been a bit disappointed in Apple’s new Push Notification service for iPhone 3.0. First off, a week after 3.0′s release the number of apps using it is super limited. Add to that the fact that the few that are out are buggy as can be and it makes you wonder how good this system will really be.
I have GOT to stop checking my RSS feeds each morning. Every time I think I have the right collection of tech something else comes along. I mean, I have a new MacBook running at 2.53GHz, with 4GB RAM and a blazing fast SSD drive.
One would think that would be top of the heap for at least a few
I am a self-admitted “Evernote evangelist”. I love the service/software/system and live by it. I use it for all aspects of my life, I have my work colleagues using it, we use it here on Gear Diary and I tell everyone I can about it.
No, I don’t work for Evernote. I’m not an investor in Evernote. I’m not even
Just as the right side dish can make or break the meal, the right accessory can take a good device and make it even better. Something as simple as a case or an external battery can be the difference between a nice device and a truly great one; between a device that is usable and one that is a pleasure.Read more

The new MacBook Pros will handle a whopping 8GB of RAM. That’s nothing short of amazing. Only problem is, the upgrade to 8GB will cost you $1100 if you get it from Apple. Ouch!

One of the most amazing iPhone apps I have used is Air Mouse. Air Mouse allows you to use your iPhone or iPod touch’s touchscreen as a multi-touch trackpad. Better still, it employs the devices’ accellerometer to turn the iPhone/touch into an Air Mouse. How does it work? Very well, actually.
Air Mouse is currently
