Just kidding. But people in the cell phone world do call Samsung's UpStage music phone the "Mullet Phone," because it has a cell phone in the front, and an MP3 player in the back. Business in the front, party in the back, as they say. And Samsung expects the highly touted Apple iPhone to help sales of their UpStage, not hurt them. Apple's first attempt at an iPod-phone hybrid, the much-derided Motorola Rokr, never took off, and may have turned off potential buyers to the idea of a music phone. That may change with the launch of the impending iPod. If Apple continues its successful iPod marketing strategy, expect a saturation-bombing marketing... Read more...

Home users and Small Business owners can often benefit from technologies that are normally out of reach for some general consumers. Home users may benefit from having a file server for sharing media, transferring large files between PCs, or even remote access while away. Small Office users can utilize the same features as well, while also benefiting from automated backup capabilities, centralized printer management, or even hosting a domain. The problem is, many of these things often require a level of understanding or experience that many home or SOHO users may lack or simply may not have the time to learn.  For larger businesses, network administrators...

SEATTLE, Dec 1 (Reuters) - The U.S. Department of Justice has issued subpoenas to Nvidia Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. as part of a probe into potential antitrust violations involving graphics chips, helping to send shares in the companies lower. Nvidia, the largest independent maker of graphics chips for computers and other devices, said on Friday that no specific allegations had been made against the company and that it plans to cooperate with the investigation. AMD, the No. 2 maker of computer processors, said late on Thursday that it had been subpoenaed. AMD entered the graphics business in October after acquiring Canadian firm ATI Technologies for $5.4 billion. Read more here...... Read more...
The Register is claiming that Panasonic is preparing to launch one of the industry's first Blu-Ray players in June. The strange aspect of this launch however, is the fact that the player will not be able to play Blu-Ray movies out of the box as there is no bundled software to support this functionality. So essentially, everyone purchasing this player is really buying a very expensive Blu-Ray player that doesn't play movies. Apparently, those wanting to see Blu-Ray movies will have to wait to get their hands on a Playstation 3 to do so. Panasonic certainly isn't bundling any such code, curiously, even though it plans to include PowerDVD... Read more...

When most home and workstation users think of NAS (Network Attached Storage), they think of big, bulky rackmount servers packed to the brim with terabytes of hard drive space (and terabyte-style price tags to match). NAS became a buzzword in the late 90's, during the dot-com explosion, where the product was targeted at companies who were just integrating web functionality into their businesses, and needed data storage where multiple people could access single file sets. Typical NAS servers ranged in the multi-thousand dollar price range when they were first introduced, and most companies found that building cheap PC's with commodity components and inexpensive hard drives was a much more viable...

Sunbeamtech Theta TP-101 Fan Controller @ Bigbruin.com: "Sunbeamtech has offered the typical fan controller (rheobus) in a variety of styles in the past, but the software based Theta TP-101 is much different.

The Compex DynaStack DSR2216 16-Port Switch It's Time for a "Switch" By Jeff Bouton 5/12/2002 In recent years, we've seen a major shift in the way companies are marketing their networking products.  With the increased popularity of DSL and Broadband, the demand for more bandwidth has made technologies that were originally designed for the commercial market, available to the average single end user or small office.  In years past, the only way the average user could network their computer was using a serial cable.  Today, the enthusiast can put together their own 100Mb high-speed network for under $150, giving them the ability to transfer hundred of megabytes of data in...
