BlackBerry Releases PlayBook 2.0 Update, Reignites a Friendship

BlackBerry Releases PlayBook 2.0 Update, Reignites a Friendship

I turned on our (okay, my wife’s) BlackBerry PlayBook the other day and, much to my surprise, the 2.0 update was available! Alright, so I wasn’t really surprised. I had read all about it from the various blogs, but I definitely was more than pleased with this download. The update unified the device and showed that BlackBerry has a err… playbook for the PlayBook. For something that never gained the popularity of the iPad or Galaxy Tab, the PlayBook is still quite the competitor. An ideal screen size for most hands and a predominantly “landscape” orientation combine to make this a portable powerhouse great for entertainment. Plus it’s still supported, unlike the HP TouchPad.

CleverPin Removes Your iPhone’s Passcode Based On Your Location [Jailbreak]

Privacy is a huge concern for almost every iPhone user. We’ve seen controversies in the past dealing with users’ location data being recorded and even contact data being accessed without permission. So for most iPhone users it’s a no-brainer to set up a 4 digit passcode to keep thieves from gaining access to your phone.

But what if you’re in a trusted area like your home or office? Should you still be required to enter your passcode even though theft is unlikely? Of course, that’s up to you, but if you’re sick of entering your passcode in the confines of your home, a jailbreak tweak called CleverPin attempts to remedy that inconvenience. Continue reading →

Lenovo ThinkVision Monitor Is a Second Screen For Your Laptop [Ad]

Those of us with dual monitors know how much easier it is to work with more screen real estate. In fact, it’s hard to go back to using only one monitor once you start using two or more. So what about a dual monitor for your laptop? Surely you’re not going to carry around a separate monitor for your laptop, right? Lenovo aims to change that idea, but with more convenience than your standard LCD monitor. Continue reading →

Saving voicemails is important. For various reasons, from legal issues to saving a loved one’s voice, people sometimes need to save voicemails. And they should be able to, right? Well, almost every U.S. cell phone provider deletes voicemails after a certain period of time – from 14 to 30 days.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus vs Motorola Droid Razr Maxx

Samsung Galaxy Nexus vs Motorola Droid Razr Maxx

If you’re looking for the true Google experience, obviously you can’t look past a Nexus device. While Google allows any manufacturer eligibility to produce each Nexus, the ultimate goal is pure Google and pure power. While I’ve never had anything against any prior Nexus device, Samsung has done the Galaxy Nexus oh so right. Obviously, the ability to uninstall or disable almost every application is a huge plus. The Galaxy Nexus offers this whereas the Razr Maxx comes with quite a bit of bloatware that you cannot uninstall (without the aid of root). Continue reading →

Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth Review

Xbox 360 Wireless Headset with Bluetooth Review

If you are like me, you are on Xbox Live pretty consistently, and while the standard headset offered by Microsoft does the job, it still doesn’t sound or work that well. You are still tied down, to the controller at least,  by a wire. Initially, Microsoft and Xbox offered a wireless alternative, and I used mine faithfully for over 3 years. Now Microsoft offers a new alternative to their popular wireless headset. The design is new (and finally comes in black), and it now offers Bluetooth as a connectivity option letting you use it for more than just your Xbox 360. Continue reading →

While the construction of this case was slightly different than my first from Seidio, the protection wasn’t compromised at all. This case has definitely saved my phone more than once.

You may have heard your photo-buff friends talking about new changes that came last week to the popular iOS-only app called Instagram. The company recently hit 15 million users back in December (we imagine they’re close to 16 million now), and is reportedly expanding to the Android platform soon.
