Motorola Backflip spotted in the wilds of China (Engadget)

Feb 1st 2010 1:00AM ...which would kick the snot out of my Droid keyboard.. I had to cut up tiny strip magnets and insert one into the device next to the MicroSD card to fool it into thinking it was in a car dock just so I could use the onscreen keyboard in landscape with quicksearch.

Feb 1st 2010 12:57AM Well, they almost did that right. When the keyboard is behind the screen, you should be able to touch type on it with your fingers opposing eachother. Looks like they're big enough for it, so the main problem is that space bar and only 4 rows (instead of 5).

Just imagine.

Then the space bar is to the left of the touch screen and the send button is on it..

Jan 31st 2010 8:24PM I can name a full desktop OS that you CAN install on ARM :D

Jan 31st 2010 8:23PM 10.3 can't even run the latest skype until you install updates to 10.3.9 AND the media framework from 10.4.. Transmission? Safari 4? OpenOffice Aqua?

I didn't find 10.3 very useful at all.

Confirmed: iPhone OS 3.2 has support for video calling, file downloads, and SMS (update: handwriting keyboard?) (Engadget)

Jan 29th 2010 10:43PM I don't understand how a mobile OS can not have file downloads.. I mean if you click on a .zip file link in a web page, what did it do before?

Adobe on Flash and the iPad: 'Apple is continuing to impose restrictions on their devices' (Engadget)

Jan 28th 2010 4:33PM I can't wait until the Google On2 sale is complete and YouTube moves to VP8 . Chrome is already the best or second best browser on earth.

I'm proud that Apple has what it takes to stand up against the pile of garbage that is flash while I'll be enjoying hundreds of Flash games on my Droid.

Jan 26th 2010 2:23PM Costs over twice what NetTalk does though...

Jan 26th 2010 2:18PM PLUS it has an ARM cpu instead of requiring another x86 or x86_64 CPU to be running 24/7, cutting the minimum operational power consumption by probably 95%....

Jan 26th 2010 2:06PM WHOA, netTALK doesn't require a computer!! It plugs right into the ethernet port on your router!!!

MagicJack _still_ requires a Windows machine or Intel Mac-- but I don't allow Windows in my household and my Mac is a G4...

I should try this netTALK thing, can they use your old phone number?
