Earlier today, Samsung managed to do what is completely unheard of in the mobile phone industry, keep a secret and wow a crowd at a trade show.

Fiat powers up, announces 2013 Fiat 500 Turbo

Posted August 28, 2012 @ 4:55 pm CST by Alberto Lima

Let’s be honest, the US auto market is typically the bigger the better but every now and again there comes a compact car that at least makes us consider what it would be like trading a V6 to something a bit smaller. The recently announced Fiat 500 Turbo may very well be one of those […]

Big news coming out of Seoul this morning; our friends over at Android Police have reported that Samsung has announced their new 5.8-inch Galaxy Player. It’s a behemoth of PMP that looks like Galaxy S III and seems to require cargo pants for storage. Not much is known about the Galaxy Player 5.8 (we really got to […]

Get your Instagram pics licensed under Creative Commons

Posted August 24, 2012 @ 11:42 am CST by Alberto Lima

The social value of Instagram far exceeds it’s $1B asking price that they got from Facebook some months back. It managed to beat Flickr in the game it created – an easily shareable service for your images. Unlike Flickr however, there simply is no way to search, catalog, or easily license any of the estimated […]

Roundup: The Rebranding

Posted August 23, 2012 @ 11:45 am CST by Chris Ness

I’ve got mosquito bites all over and I’m not really enjoying it. Keep that in mind while I grump my way through the news.  After 25 years, Microsoft gets a new Logo. Sure, it’s not “Metro” but it looks like it. ಠ_ಠ 25 years after birth, Microsoft has decided that it needs a new logo. According […]

Roundup: IT Fun

Posted August 21, 2012 @ 12:45 pm CST by Chris Ness

I enjoy doing helpdesk stuff most of the time. Not all of the time, though.  Amazon unveils Glacier, super cheap data archive service. This isn’t your average cloud service, but rather a service focused on rarely-accessed data. It comes as cheap as a penny per Gigabyte per month. The idea is to bundle your files […]

Roundup: Garbage Man

Posted August 20, 2012 @ 3:21 pm CST by Chris Ness

Hey, it’s a roundup! Big deal, move along.  Samsung/Apple Jurors to fill out pre-made forms to clarify judgement. This is a novel idea, but still very strange. Samsung and Apple are supposed to agree on a single form (agree? Yeah, ok, that’s worked well so far) to give to jurors at the end of the […]
