Blackberry Storm 2 First Images and Gizmodo thinks Storm 2 is a Piece of SH**!

Here’s some of the first images of the new Blackberry Storm 2.  This grabbed my attention because part of the reason why I didn’t buy a new Blackberry was because the new Blackberries really sucked. (no real improvements over previous versions other than new packaging)

Don’t get me wrong, I used to LOVE my Blackberry (8830), it was the most versatile piece of gadget I had as it fit in my pocket sn

Amazon Hack – Kindle 2 Hacked to Run Ubuntu Linux!

It looks like Jesse Vincent has hacked an Amazon Kindle 2 to run a custom version of Ubuntu Linux! Well, the Kindle 2 does run on ARM, there’s a lot of linux software out there that’s running on ARM including the Palm Pre but this is pretty amazing indeed.

I could not find any further details on how to accomplish this but I can say one thing, if you can make use of Kindle 2’s EDVO connection, you might just have hacked a “free” per-say, linux computer that uses very litt

Microsoft’s New Ads Imply Macs are Too Expensive!

video://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mRF9-5itZA4

Lol, Microsoft is implying that Apple Macs are too expensive on their new ads, as seen in this vid. It’s true though, I “still” have bought 1 Mac in my whole entire life, that was for one of the graphic designers I hired, not for me. Of course, I will always need the extra features that PC give me, (ironic huh saying this and coming from a person who doesn’t like Windows) there’s so much more you can do on a PC.

Of course, I will never be satisfied with Windows, the operating system, but yes, PCs will

Steve Jobs on Blue-ray Discs – “Bag of Hurt!”

In a recent Apple get-together conference (actually right now I think…), Steve Jobs says Blue-ray discs are “bag of hurt” and he’s unsure if this Blue-ray disc thing will keep going or not.

Although I don’t agree with Steve Jobs’ decision on going with AT&T for the iPhone, I have to agree Blue-ray discs are still in their early stages and things could drastically change in the next 1-2 years.

Just remember when the last couple time Sony failed to standardize their new technology inventions such as

AT&T New Service Agreement Sucks and I am glad I have Sprint!

AT&T trying to

Well, it’s not new news that a telecommunication company is trying to scam consumers out of their rights through changes in service agreements.  I remember my credit card company sending me a new service agreement about 3 months after I signed up, now that’s a big scam.

Of course, as consumers we can’t really “prove” they are a scam unless we sue them together.

As for me, I am glad I got of the AT&T (Cingular back then) market.  My cable and internet is Comcast and I use Sprint for my Blackb

Google Chrome EULA in question?

Google Chrome EULA in question?

Google Chrome EULA has been confusing some of the bloggers recently, check out what the fuss is about at Zedomax.Net.

In a recent post over at Gizmodo about the Google Chrome’s End User License Agreement (EULA), Google supposedly owns everything that you “do” on the Google Chrome.

Of course, we think that the EULA was just worded vaguely but probably didn’t mean to mean that Google is going to own everything you do on the Google Chrome browser.
