Peek at Apple’s new ‘Snow Leopard’, not much on the surface

In Apple on June 21, 2008 at 9:55 pm

Engadget reports that there have been leaks of Snow Leopard’s new Safari 4.0. It shows the ability to create web clips, so you can download any website functionality right on to your drive. This will be great for Google Docs and Blist. It seems as if Snow Leopard’s upgrades from Leopard will be in the engine and not the paint, though. Nothing seems to have changed much, and it seems like just one big upgrade for Leopard, hence the lack of creativity in the name, with just four letters and a space added. Apple fanboys, such as myself, drool over this picture of “Safari 4.0” and Microsoft fannies, ahem, well, you’re in the wrong place.

Nintendo launched it’s Wii Fit, and they’re proud of it. There is a celebration and trial in Central Park, NYC, NY today, thrown by Nintendo, reports Engadget. It has been long overdue and long waited, but the Wii Fit is finally here for all to see and enjoy. Let’s just hope it will bring many smiles and joy to young kids around the world (Yes, even you China).

3G iPhone leaked due to a carrying case render?

In Cell Phones, Technology on May 19, 2008 at 10:28 am

Well, I’m sitting at school, checking Engadget, and come across this, a potential leak of the 3G iPhone. I believe that it is true, there is just too much evidence of the new iPhone, first Apple takes it off their website, then Apple stores and AT&T report dwindling stock of the iPhone, then the picture, and now this. The case is significantly different from the current iPhone, it is rounder and some of the jacks are out of place, I believe that this is the one that will prove the 3G iPhone, it’s about time!

RIM announces Blackberry Bold release date, prices leaked

In Cell Phones on May 16, 2008 at 11:46 am

UPDATE ON SEP 8: There is a pretty strong rumor going around at Engadget and The Boy Genius Report that the Bold will be coming out on October 2 for AT&T, no word on any other carriers. Don’t get your hopes up just yet, remember the summer release date? Yeah, it got thrown in the garbage can, but it is an ounce of light on a still lingering hope that the Bold will at least come out this year. Story from Engadget, link to the Boy Genius Report is in the post.

UPDATE ON AUG 23: It’s also official that Rogers, the major Canadian carrier, will be offering the Blackberry Bold for CA $399 as well as a voice plus data plan for CA $49 a month. Story from Engadget.

UPDATE ON AUG 14: It’s official, the Blackberry Bold release date has been delayed. It’s already August and no Bold. Research in Motion (RIM) has stated that due to bad battery life, software issues, and overheating, the Bold has been delayed. There is no word from anyone when the new dates are going to be. Report from Engadget & The Boy Genius Report.

NOTICE: All updates for the Blackberry Bold will be posted through AddictedBlogging.com as of July 5, 2008.

UPDATE ON JUN 12: Engadget has reported that the Blackberry Bold now has it’s own promotional page on AT&T, the AT&T page is here and the Engadget page is here.

ORIGINAL ON MAY 16: As you can tell I am very fond of Engadget. That is why I found this article. RIM has announced the release dates for their new, hot, Blackberry Bold as well as a leak for the prices. Keep in mind that prices are just estimates (Thanks Forrest). Here they are:

AT&T – July ($300)

Verizon Wireless – September ($300)

Sprint – September ($300)

T-Mobile – September ($350)

I know that we’re all waiting on the exact release dates and pricing, but for now you can just drool over some more Blackberry Bold pictures at the gallery below.

Microsoft announcing “TouchWall”, just another piece of hardware for Google Maps

In Technology on May 15, 2008 at 9:14 pm

Microsoft has announced Touch Wall, Engadget reports, a touchable electronic device mounted on a wall. It will be a great piece of hardware for web applications like Google Maps. It looks like it’s going to be used for the public and not private. It looks pretty neat, but is it worth the money? I say no, it’s a big piece of flash that costs too much for too little. Microsoft isn’t making the right choices so far. Vista is a failure, they’re trying to copy Apple with their ‘simplicity’ with the new Office Suite, the Zune, and this new TouchWall that they just announced, and quite frankly, it’s not doing too well. Well that’s my take on it, for now goodbye.
