CES - Big, Exciting, Overwhelming and Fun

It is virtually impossible to see all of the exhibits at CES unless you go there with a team of folks, each with a pre-defined role on what they will cover. This year I wanted to walk the floors, see as much as I could and try to absorb the incredible array of electronic devices that […]

ASUS launches its GPS-enabled UMPC ‘R2H’

ASUS has introduced its UMPC ‘R2H’. It has a 7 inch touch screen and comes with Windows XP Tablet PC Edition OS and Microsoft touch pack software.
Although it has GPS capability it only has a 1.3M camera which I find disappointing. It does support 802.11b/g WLAN and Bluetooth V.20+EDR .

Thoughts About the iPhone at Gear Diary

Judie over at Gear Diary has some personal issues with the iPhone.  She expressed a concern that they may or may not be relevant to anyone but her …  Judie, they are relevant, they are a HUGE concern, and if Apple does not address them the iPhone is doomed for failure.
So what were Judies […]


The "Dapter" by MoGo Mouse

So your laptop does not have Bluetooth?  This is a solution that will solve that problem and you won’t even know you have an adapter plugged in (almost).  This is an incredibly tiny adapter that seamlessly blends into the side of your laptop and looks as if there is nothing there.  You will slide […]


No Plans to Commercialize the XO Computer

Synaptics Onyx concept phone demo - Jack’s story

Just a reminder for folks that on Monday you will begin to see the AT&T logo replacing the Cingular logo.  For a period of time, there will be a transitional graphic that will include both the AT&T and Cingular logos.

Beauty is Just Skin Deep …

C/NET had an article entitled “ A heavy load for the iPhone to bear ” that I thought was pretty interesting in the ongoing discussion of the new iPhone.  The more and more I read, the more I am convinced that this is NOT going to be a hit in the business end … it […]

iPhone … potentially the iFlop

The articles are starting to surface, facts are beginnng to become clearer and my initial thoughts that “It looks “pretty” but I’m not particularly impressed” are being reinforced.
