Last I checked, my keychain had about eight of those annoying-to-carry but good-to-have discount store cards. You know the ones: they each have a barcode for a frequent customer discount? If I add one more to the keychain, my keys won’t fit into the ignition switch, […] Read more »

Engadget shows us the Option GlobeSurfer iCON today, a unique modem that holds nice little surprise in the hinge: a USB connector. While I can’t say I’d really want a clamshell-looking device sticking out of my UMPC or notebook, I do crave the mobile connectivity that […] Read more »

There’s small mobile tech and then there’s small mobile tech. Sagem’s H4 Bluetooth headset might be in its own category at just 35 x 18 x 12.5mm. Heck, it looks like it’s just double the size of the earbud. The H4 weighs a light eight grams, […] Read more »

Earlier this week, Chris Pirillo announced his breakup with Windows Vista. It was particularly shocking to me since we have a 90-day wait period on all divorces here in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania (we’re NOT a state, darn it!). Chris skipped divorce court and all attempts […] Read more »

If you have time today, swing by The Student Tablet PC and wish that Tablet gal, Tracy Hooten, a happy birthday! Tracy turns 21 day, which in my book is the last good "milestone" birthday. Sorry Tracy; the rest of the milestones are all downhill! Now […] Read more »
