Weekly Tech Wrap-up

March already? Blimey this year’s going quick. Speaking of quick, this week had not one, not two, but three eco-sports cars featuring in the news. First up we had Tesla announcing a partnership to make a special edition TAG Heuer Roadster, making yet another entry into the ‘cars you wish you had the money for’ list.

The TAG Tesla Roadster, even more want.

Weekly Tech Wrap-up

Another week, another tech story and there’s plenty of them to choose from this week so let’s get cracking OK?

First up for your gadget gorging pleasure is the world’s first 4G netbook which the folks over at CNET UK got their mitts on. The Samsung N150 packs your usual netbook fair, nothing really to shake a stick at apart from the LTE modem (that’s LongTermEvolution for those keeping track). Boasting potential speeds of 100Mbps down/50Mbps up, real world tests showed Sammy managing roughly 28Mbps, which to be fair is faster than my home broadband. A lot to get excited about then.

Flash? In my Cellphone? Tell Me More (aka sucks to be iPhone)

Get Adobe Flash PlayerSanta must have some dirt on the iPhone this year.  Come end of year/early next year all smartphones, with the exception of the iPhone, will be running a mobile version of the Flash 10 player.  To quote the source:

Adobe describes Apple as “closed device” and continues to offer a fig leaf, but given Apple’s general stance on opening up new development platforms on their device, it seems a tad unlikely.

Well, I guess that says it all. Maybe there can be an unholy Silverlight/iPhone hybrid in the future… /shudders

My BlackBerry Storm finally came!!

Posted by: |

Finally… after ordering the Storm a day after it has been released, I received my phone!!!  It’s about time i got myself an upgrade from my crappy Moto Q.  That thing was a turd.  Since I have Verizon though, the G1 was out of the question, and that REALLY cool Nokia phone the Sam posted up isn’t out yet, and my DREAM phone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 is not released in the states yet…  But hopefully, once I get back home from work… I’ll be able to play around with it, and maybe do a short initial review on how I feel about it.  I admit, once I ordered it, I felt a lil rushed, and felt that I may not be happy with the decision and may have to return it.  Partly also because when I played with the demo… the OS on the phone was REDICULOUSLY laggy.  But after doing more research on crackberry.com, I started to feel more content with the purchase.  Especially with the upgrade that pretty much gets rid of the laggyness in the OS.  I now leave with you with my box opening ceremony pictures =P
