We actually wondered what Microsoft would say if they got wind of Google's plans to phase out Windows machines in favor of Linux and OS X alternatives, and it looks like our wish has been granted. Microsoft recently published a response the rumor (which has still not been confirmed by Google), and the whole thing... Read more...
Things just continue to get more and more interesting in the Google/Apple drama scenarios. Needless to say, both Google and Apple have been at each other's throats a little bit lately, but in the end, Google, Apple and Microsoft are all competing against one another, so it's not surprising to see a bit of bumping and...

And just like that, the shakeup at Palm continues. A few days before HP eventually came public with their intentions to acquire the struggling cell phone maker, Michael Abbott, SVP of software and services, decided to bolt for the door. Now, another huge pillar at Palm has decided that the new HP-Palm is no place for him. Matias Duarte is... Read more...
The Web browser battle is seriously heating up. Apple is retooling Safari, Firefox is headed for big things in the next major point release, IE9 is expected to make Internet Explorer desirable again, and Google is finally removing the Beta label from the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome. That's right, there's a new Chrome stable release to... Read more...
Did Google miss a critical opportunity? Some might say they did. Google has obviously capitalized on quite a number of market openings, paving the way for true smartphone competition with Android, putting Yahoo! and MSN on their toes with Google search, and putting Yahoo! Mail as well as Hotmail on guard with Gmail. And that's just the beginning.... Read more...
We're not surprised that someone managed to root HTC's EVO 4G smartphone, we're just taken aback by how quickly it was done. After all, you can't even walk into a Sprint store and pick up an EVO 4G just yet. But hey, that's the sort of risk your run when you hand out pre-release phones to developers ahead of launch, which is what Google did... Read more...
Google managed to score quite a few big partners with their Google TV launch, with Intel and Sony being two key partners in moving the technology forward into the mainstream. But for those who don't want to purchase any entirely new television this fall with a CE4100 processor and the Google TV app onboard, they'll need a set-top box to connect... Read more...
Sony and Android, just like two peas in a pod? Sony Ericsson has been known to install Android on select phones, but that's really the extent of the relationship up until now. But after Google's Google TV announcement last week, it seems as Sony and Google are now signed up to be buddy-buddy in a lot of respects. What... Read more...
Justin Long said it was over, and well...it's over. The long-running "Get A Mac" ad campaign is coming to end, which is the second large "angry" ad campaign in the tech world to get put away in the past few months. AT&T recently ditched their "anti-Verizon" ads in favor of a new Rethink Possible series, and now... Read more...
Yesterday, Google's biggest reveal at Google I/O was Google TV. It's still sort of a fuzzy product, and it's hard to aptly describe in just a few words. It's definitely aiming to be the "next big thing" in television, and the only way it will ever have a huge impact is to join up with known names in the industry in order to get into more homes....

Google has their hands in a lot of buckets these days. Chrome, Chrome OS, Android, Search, Buzz, Wave, and the list goes on and on. Not everything Google touches turns to gold, and one of those things may be Wave. This launched with loads of fanfare, and some said that it would revolutionize internal corporate communication as we knew it.... Read more...
It was basically a foregone conclusion that Android 2.2 would be launching this week at Google's I/O conference in California, but up until now, we only knew about select bits and pieces of the mobile OS. Today, Google revealed everything there is to know about v2.2 (code name "Froyo"), which is easily the most significant Android update to... Read more...
Cloud-based services have come a long way recently, with tons of companies looking to faraway storage portals in order to host applications, files, media, you name it. Google's entire office suite is hosted in the cloud (you save a Gdoc, it saves "somewhere" that can be accessed only via the Internet), and Microsoft's new KIN feature-phones... Read more...
Google's own I/O conference in California is wrapping up today, but not before the company goes out with a serious bang. To our knowledge, Google is about the only technology company out there today that is big enough to throw their own party and get people to come, aside from Apple of course. One of the major...

It was already made rather clear that the next version of Android (v2.2, or "Froyo" in code name speak) would support Adobe Flash Web sites, which has been the talk of the smartphone world over the past few months. Apple's iPhone family has never supported Flash sites, but this debate was rekindled and elevated once... Read more...
Talk about the comeback of the year. General Motors was on the doorstep of death just last year, and thanks to some debatable funding tossed their way, they're now seemingly back in stride. One thing that has really hampered GM's growth over the years is their inability to really innovate on the technical side. They were consistently falling... Read more...
Acer plans to show off the first netbook that operates on Google's Chrome OS at a trade show in early June. According to various news reports, Acer will show the device at the Computex Taipei show on June 1-5. Acer hasn't confirmed these reports, but has said the company will be one of the first hardware manufacturers to offer a Chrome OS-based... Read more...
All good things must eventually end, and all not-so-good things must end even sooner. Google has never shied away from trying new things; innovation runs in the company's blood, and they obviously tried something very new with the launch of the Nexus One. It was the company's first smartphone, and even though it was... Read more...
Never heard of Litl? That's because they're a rather small (or little, if we should be so hilarious) start-up company, trying their best to compete with the big boys at Google and the like. Last year, the company introduced their version of a convertible netbook, called the Webbook. It runs a special, proprietary... Read more...
According to Google chief executive Eric Schmidt, at least 65,000 Android-powered smartphones are shipping every day. While speaking at Google's annual shareholder meeting, Schmidt said the Android OS is being used on 34 mobile devices in 49 countries. "It looks like Android is going to be either the number one or number two player" in the... Read more...
Oh boy, this won't go over well. Just as the weekend was getting set to kick into high gear, Google dropped one more bombshell for the news crowd to hop on. The company, which has seen lots of criticism lately over botched privacy efforts (most recently involving Google Buzz's auto-add friend feature), is about to be... Read more...
We were a little surprised to initially hear this news, but should we be? Look at the mobile realm. Apple introduced the iPhone, and the iPhone OS crushed every other mobile OS on the market. A while later, Google introduced Android, and now Android is closing in on Apple's growth rate according to some statistics. Google and Apple have been... Read more...
