Android gamers have made emulators such as N64oid, Ataroid, Gearoid, Nesoid, Snesoid, Gensoid, and Gameboid popular on the Android Market.

Wow. Big numbers out of the AMD camp, and we have to think that Intel is taking them seriously. Reportedly, AMD has sold through five million Fusion chips.

You may know RealD from those 3D flicks you've seen in the cinema, and Samsung...well,... Read more...
NAS adapters, or dongles that allow people to create their own Network and Cloud Storage networks, aren't totally new. But throwing USB 3.0 into the mix? That is!

Gaming desktops, by and large, are large. Ahem, or should we say, "towering?" Either way, the bulk of hardcore gaming desktops on the market today ship in massive cases, with plenty of room for extra PCIe cards, hard drives, and pretty much anything else you'd want to toss in there. But small form factor systems have a place in all of this... Read more...
Media players are popping out every week or so it seems, so we shouldn't be surprised to see Habey USA popping out another.

It's no iPhone killer. In fact, it's not even a smartphone. But these days, in a world seemingly saturated with slate-styled handsets that require a $30/month+ data plan to keep active, it's somewhat refreshing to see a simple alternative that gets back to the basics. For those in need of a phone that does little more than make/receive calls... Read more...
Your average coach airline seat won't have a power outlet, but you can bet the pilots have access to a couple of them. At least, we sure hope they do over at Alaska Airlines, because the company just green-lit a new program that will allow their aircraft to use iPad flight manuals instead of bulky, wasteful paper ones. They're claiming to... Read more...

Symbian's dead. Long live Symbian? It seems to be the case these days, as Nokia's long-lived operating system may not be completely paralyzed just yet.

Samsung still isn't coming clean with a release date for the new and improved Galaxy Tab 10.1, but we have a pretty good indication that it'll be shipping sooner rather than later. Why?
