Nope! That's the answer given to Apple by the International Trade Commission, shutting down its hopes for an emergency ban against HTC products. It's actually one of only a few "No!" responses heard on the legal front lately, as Judge Koh managed to give Apple the ability to halt sales of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Galaxy Nexus pending the outcome of the whole shebang. Now, the U.S. ITC has ruled that HTC can continue to import smartphones while the agency "investigates whether the phones violate an order that the Taiwanese company stop infringing an Apple." The claim is that HTC is still in violation... Read more...
While netbooks are certainly garnering the majority of the notebook spotlight these days, thin-and-light machines such as Acer's Timeline series and MSI's X-Slim family are making a move for the forefront. Just this week, Lenovo also introduced its first significant foray into the segment, and we have to say, it should provide some solid competition in the burgeoning market. The 14" U450p is a perfect in-between for folks not happy with a cramped ultraportable and not able (or willing, as the case may be) to lug around a full-size 15" notebook. Boasting an expected Intel CULV (Consumer Ultra Low... Read more...
Sharp claims that its new AQUOS DX series of LCD TVs are the world's first LCD TVs with built-in Blu-ray recorders. The new DX series TVs will be available in Japan starting in November and will come in sizes ranging from 26 inches to 52 inches.

With a 50GB BD, up to about 21 hours and 40 minutes of compressed high-definition video can be recorded to disc. On the other end of the spectrum, about 2 hours and 10 minutes of the highest-quality video can be recorded on... Read more...
Pre-sale demand for the T-Mobile Android G1 is so high that according to T-Mobile, they have sold out all their units. While we don't know exactly what the number of units is, which makes it hard to just just how impressive this may or may not be, according to T-Mobile, this happened after they tripled their original factory order. Sorry to say, this means if you hope to be one of the ones who gets his T-Mobile G1 on the first day --- and you haven't ordered yet --- you're out of luck. However, you can still get into "round 2" of the pre-orders, according to their site. T-Mobile customers can get... Read more...
You may recall the case of Sebastien Boucher?  He was stopped in 2006 while crossing the U.S. - Canadian border and charged with transporting child pornography on his laptop across the border.  Unfortunately for the prosecutors, the data on the laptop is encrypted, and he now refuses to enter the necessary password to allow access to the files.  Additionally, a judge ruled late last year that he could not be compelled to reveal the password.Based on this ruling, and the recent policies enacted by the Department of Homeland Security, might we see more interest in disk encryption?...

Since moving to the "top of the world," everything Apple does is watched - and watched carefully.  With iPhone launches done (though iPhone shortages still of interest), some have turned their eyes toward the more mundane portion of Apple's business: the computer portion of it.  And some circuit board orders are being pointed as a possible clue of new MacBooks.The Commercial Times reported (in Chinese, but translated by Digitimes) that Apple has increased its orders of printed-circuit boards for notebooks by 20 percent, compared to last quarter.Macs are selling pretty well lately, but...

Pure Digital came out of nowhere last year with one of the hottest consumer electronics devices on the market. Their compact Flip Camcorder cost just $149,  had four buttons and a hatch for a couple of alkaline batteries, took pretty good quality video, and plugged right into your USB port to download the video bits of your life. Simple, easy, fun, and inexpensive quickly added up to almost a million units sold, and an instant 20 percent market share. They even let you upload your video direct to YouTube with the software interface included. Pure Digital isn't resting on its success, though;... Read more...
Internet years go by fast. Way back in ancient web history --2001-- Borders books thought it was a good idea to ally themselves with a fast-growing web portal called Amazon.com. Perhaps you've heard of it. I'm sure it seemed like an interesting sideline revenue stream to Borders enormous brick-and-mortar book sales at the time. Borders has now finally woken up to the fact that Amazon is basically putting Borders' regular stores out of business, and they're trying to recapture sales revenue currently lost to the Internet by launching their own e-commerce site, borders.com. “The decision to partner...

Via Technologies, and their subsidiary, Centaur, think their next generation 64-bit processor, the Isaiah, will outperform Intel's soon to be released Silverthorne chip. Glenn Henry of Centaur hedges his bet a little, as hard info about Silverthorne's capabilities is hard to come by. And he says Isaiah won't be able to match a Core 2 Duo. But in the niche of low power consumption/high performance/inexpensive processors, Isaiah's "out-of-order" processor architecture might make Via a winner.An in-order processor is similar to a factory with a single assembly line. The chip can only work on one operation... Read more...
It's finally happened: the first official order for the OLPC has been placed.  The country which ordered them was Uruguay. The South American country has bought 100,000 of the machines for schoolchildren aged six to 12. A further 300,000 may be purchased to provide a machine for every child in the country by 2009. The order will be a boost for the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) organisation behind the project which has admitted difficulties getting concrete orders.An additional boost to the program may happen on November 12th, when the "Give 1, Get 1" program starts, allowing end users to buy...

A former BitTorrent server administrator has been given a harsh sentence - at least for a diehard Linux user.  Because the monitoring software required by his plea agreement won't run on Linux (surprise!), he is been ordered to switch to Windows, or go without a computer. Scott McCausland, who used to be an administrator of the EliteTorrents BitTorrent server before it was shut down by the FBI, pleaded guilty in 2006 to two copyright-related charges over the uploading of Star Wars: Episode III to the internet. As a result, he was sentenced to five months in jail and five months' home confinement.... Read more...
Dominos Pizza has been experimenting with different forms of digitally ordering pizza in recent years.  It all started with opening a web-site to take online orders (something Papa John’s Pizza made quite popular), then moved on to the infamous /pizza command in EverQuest 2, and now has moved on to the wonderful world of SMS.The big question is just who is going to be the target audience for such a method.  It'd seem that anyone with an SMS-capable phone could just make a call, unless the phones at their local Dominos are too busy. “Yes, if you get a passion for pepperoni when the pubs throw...
