Toshiba Announces 256GB SSD for your Netbook

September 27th, 2008

Netbooks are neat little computers and are making internet tablets obsolete.

Well, Toshiba has answered the call for the latter and will be making 256GB solid state drives. …

SanDisk 16GB available on the market without SanDisk knowing

September 26th, 2008

It looks like the much anticipated 16GB microSD card is now available from SanDisk, but they haven’t started advertising it at all.

Verizon Wireless consolidates social networking sites with SocialLife

September 26th, 2008

It looks like Apple has decided to sell the iPhone 3G to folks in Hong Kong without having it locked down to any particular carrier.

MySpace to offer millions of songs “free”

September 25th, 2008

Taking a step in the right direction, sorta, MySpace is going to be offering loads of free music starting September 25.

Ex-Google Manager Criticizes Android

September 24th, 2008

Bitter and somewhat justified, Ulf Washbusch (we bet he never heard the end of it in high school) has decided to criticize Google Android and the phone on which it will be making its debut. You see, Ulf is now the ex-Google Mobile Product Manager who now works in MySpace’s mobile product operations. We think …

September 24th, 2008

These days, it seems having your own music store or app store is all the rage. Sony Ericsson wants in on the party and is going to release its own music store in just a few weeks. The only problem is SE’s new Play Now Plus (the music store, duh) is only going to be …
