Microsoft Courier Details Leaked, iPad Looks on in Envy (Switched)

Mar 7th 2010 12:00PM It's obviously old - Windows XP, Old website screenshots being used.. I just wish Microsoft would push this out. They spent SO much on R&D and then somehow it gets stuck! I'd pay double, hey, triple for this over an iPad.

Hama cases foreshadow 5G iPod nano, 3G iPod touch at IFA: hands-on (Engadget)

Sep 4th 2009 5:43AM Looks fake to me.. the font appears heavier and slightly smaller where it references the 3rd gen just looks a mess to me. somebody has just taken an "old" one, and cut the shape...

Aug 25th 2009 4:49AM "what is this? 10 ft?" AGHHH - I join those who say his voice is so annoying!

Pirate Bay acquired by Global Gaming Factory, going legit like Napster (Engadget)

Jun 30th 2009 5:33AM This has to be a joke...unless of course they've sold it for a nice sum, and set up something else with the cash. Let's face it - users are going to desert tpb now..

Apple unleashes iPhone 3G S on well-prepared US public (with video!) (Engadget)

Jun 19th 2009 9:57AM I should stress that i don't mean to offend anyone about their weight - I'm not the thinnest person myself! I just found the % of fat looking people quite noticeable on the video!!

When we watch American films, over here in the UK, most people are super sometimes too) thin!

Apple unleashes iPhone 3G S on well-prepared US public (with video!) (Engadget)

Jun 19th 2009 8:44AM 1. I am shocked at how many FAT people there are. And by fat, they really are clinically obses! Is this representative of citizens in teh USA or just Apple store emplyees and iPhone buyers?! (doenst help having them wearing clingy t-shirts!)

2. I think it's quite sad how people applaud. I'd be mortified - cringe of the horror. Is an iPhone purchase REALLY worth applause?! How materialistic!! I'm an iphone buyer, but I far prefer the discreet home delivery or small shop where there's non of this nonsense!

iPhone 3G S global launch sees smaller lines, quieter reception (update) (Engadget)

Jun 19th 2009 3:49AM Apple cant be happy with o2 (unless they've done a "pre-sold" agreement in the millions) . All this talk about paying off the costs of the subsidy is nonsense - we've been paying a premium contact price for the past 12 months compared with other phones, so the talk about it being "unfair" is rubbish. o2 need to get their act together.

When looking at the matrix for the 3G S prices, they looked back at the queues last year, and thought they could make a quick "buck" (or £ to be precise) out of the apparent demand. Well, i genuinely hope the demand is a LOT lower, and o2 in turn wakes up and improves the situation. Even AT&T has made an effort...

Hulu plans to go international (Download Squad)

Mar 24th 2009 12:17PM Good luck getting the BBC on board...

I think they have their own ambitions to be honest!

Pre emerges on Palm's UK website... in a CDMA skin (Engadget)

Feb 20th 2009 1:51PM As somebody in the UK with iPhone 3G, i can tell you that I will be getting this phone! Yes, I'll be raped with the existing 18month contract, but unless Apple and o2 come up with something decent, I'm switching..

Phone problems aside, o2 3G coverage is next to none existent where I live (lake district) and orange and Vodafone have far far better coverage.

Studio XPS 13 materializes on Dell website (Engadget)

Dec 20th 2008 2:56PM I have the current xps m1330 and loved it. except the keyboard that is.. Couldn't they just change the keyboard instead of removing the 1394 port (which, by the way, i should admit, i've never used!) and making it heavier?!!

The new Macbook looks suitably more tempting now. Like John Titor , I bought the xps m1330 over the previous gen macbook as it was about 150 dollars cheaper, and better spec. now that differential seems to have been reversed..
