Behind the curtain: It’s the end of the world… Edition

Posted December 22, 2012 @ 1:17 am CST by Alberto Lima

Yesterday was supposed to be the end of the world by Mayan prophecy, tectonic plate shift, pole shift, or (my personal favorite) Planet X/Nibiru smashing into the Earth! Well it’s pretty safe here in the future – December 22nd; but don’t think we didn’t about bringing you live updates of this cataclysmic event! This concludes […]

Samsung Series 3 Chromebook Review

Posted December 11, 2012 @ 8:00 am CST by Charles Bullins

First things first, unboxing and initial impressions. Packaging was very straightforward, giving you everything you’d expect; the Chromebook, a charging cable, and paperwork along with a Chrome logo sticker.

Porn in Russia’s iTunes Store

Posted December 5, 2012 @ 2:00 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Instagram blocks Twitter; is this “a better Instagram for everyone?”

Posted December 5, 2012 @ 11:21 am CST by Alberto Lima

Back when Instagram announced that its sale to Facebook was a done deal, they made a rather lofty promise that their acquisition meant “a better Instagram for everyone.” Today, many Twitter users have noticed that Instagram previews on their time lines appear either cropped or off-center; an annoyance sure, but why?

Apple Retail Store revenues best diamonds

Posted November 29, 2012 @ 6:00 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Diamonds are a funny thing; they’re fancy pieces of carbon that people are willing to spend a whole lot of money on. They’re considered precious stones that are invaluable; hence their usually inflated costs. Apple’s wares are a lot like said diamonds, except when talking about how much of each item you can actually sell. According […]

Have you seen the Nest smart thermostat? It’s a beautifully designed learning thermostat designed by former iPod chief, Tony Fadell. Did you hear about Scott Forstall being fired a week ago? The former iOS boss was unceremoniously canned after the poor reviews iOS Maps received. Most of us in the blogosphere have debated whether it was a […]

Droid Razr Maxx HD Review

Posted November 29, 2012 @ 8:52 am CST by Mason Farber

Motorola used to be known for its infamous “MotoBlur,” which was their own Android replacement UI which was strangely focused on social networking. Eventually they made the UI less intrusive, but there was still lag. Then came the fateful day on May 22, 2012 when Google announced their deal to acquire of Motorola Mobility, Motorola’s […]
