TUAW review and giveaway: XtremeMac InCharge Duo for iPad (TUAW.com)

Pricing the tablet: How high can they go? (TUAW.com)

Jan 21st 2010 2:54PM It should be pointed out that while you can search by model number and find the 32GB 3GS for $699, when you click it, it sends you to the regular order page and walks you through the AT&T stuff. You still can't actually purchase it contract-free, even though its listed as such.

Dec 10th 2009 1:32PM Looks like this could be a lot of fun. I've been running a Hacintosh of my own (Compaq Presario C714NR laptop) for 2 years now. If I'm up (I have a newborn son, so I likely will be), I'll have to pop in. :)

Blackra1n jailbreak now available for iPhone OS 3.1.2, iPod touch 3G (Engadget)

Oct 12th 2009 3:41AM Aaaand, I'm having to restore. That was short lived. It's not a huge deal to not be jailbroken (as I've spent the last few weeks in this state), but restoring all my media will take all night. Luckily, I'm about to head to bed. lol Oh well, I'll stick it out and wait for Dev Team's jailbreak.

Oct 12th 2009 1:59AM Wow, that fast and easy on my 3rd Gen 64GB iPod touch. I'm VERY impressed! Now to put all the fun stuff on there!

Dell Inspiron 11z reviewed with high hopes, disappointing realities (Engadget)

Aug 31st 2009 9:59PM Alright, I'll be the voice of experience, if not reason, here. I got my 11z last Wednesday, and I love it. Granted, I never even booted it with Vista, but it runs quite smooth with Windows 7 RTM. Due to the single core, you do see some lag in program startup when running other "intense" programs, but I find the performance to be very acceptable. No, you won't play Crysis on it, but it will run Photoshop and Lightroom quite well.

As for the trackpad, this is the first trackpad I've ever actually liked. My wife has a MacBook, and the multitouch gestures are quite comparable. The pad itself is nice and responsive, though lacking buttons. For people that tap to click, it's fine. For those used to using physical buttons, you have to get used to it. The bottom corners do click down, but I just tap with no issues.

My only issues stem from the video drivers; color profiles don't seem to stick properly, and I can't set it to retain the aspect ratio of the source when playing older games. The option is in the menu, but won't remember it was chosen, if that makes sense. I'm sure a driver refresh at some point will fix it.

All in all, I love my 11z. I'll be upgrading to a 4GB stick of RAM when the price comes down, but other than that, it's wonderful for me.
