“Windows Phone is beautiful,” so sayeth The Woz

Posted April 30, 2012 @ 12:00 pm CST by Alberto Lima

In an article in Business Insider, the patron saint of all things geek, Steve Wozniak heavily poured on the praise for the Nokia Lumia 900.

Nintendo reports nearly half-billion in losses

Posted April 30, 2012 @ 10:48 am CST by Alberto Lima

Looks like there’s trouble in the Mushroom Kingdom, Nintendo’s latest quarterly earnings report is not looking good. According to a report in Forbes, the Big N reported a net loss to the tune of $461.2M – worse still, selling the Nintendo 3DS at a loss isn’t helping matters either. Worse still is the projected plan […]

Posted April 27, 2012 @ 3:57 pm CST by Alberto Lima

It was a big day today in New York, the new home to the Space Shuttle Enterprise. There’s not much to say other than we at The Noisecast will miss the Shuttle; and yes, Chris, I am aware that this is only a test Shuttle and never actually went to space. On a blustery spring day, […]

Samsung Galaxy S II (T-Mo) will not get ICS update

Posted April 24, 2012 @ 11:54 am CST by Alberto Lima

Unless you’re a T-Mobile customer. T-Mobile […]

QuickDrive with Kevlar: Kia Optima Hybrid

Posted April 20, 2012 @ 12:00 pm CST by Chris Ness

As in my previous review, I decided to take a quick spin in a Kia Optima Hybrid just to see what it’s like. Now, I’m not a car person. I prefer SUVs and trucks, but I appreciate the savings at the pump that comes with a car, and that’s what led me to pick the […]
