Still down? Is the only question I can ask, or care to ask, all day I have had service disruptions, mitigated only by connecting to WIFI, so if most of RIM's services were working on WIFI why was nothing working when connected direct to Rogers?

So you post a bunch of pictures, some of them are questionable, you really don't care if your "friends" see them, but what if your boss, or aunt, or mom's best friend sees these pictures from Mexico? What will they say, oh how embarrassing... Well now you can change that, and you will be fully...

Sick of your friends carrying around a pretty iPad? Well look no further, Pierre Cardin has gone where no other designer dared. He designed a tablet PC that will turn heads... maybe... either way. It will look good, and it will be Android, that is enough to worry Steve Jobs.

I just got invited, and I have no clue what I am doing on there... I don't know if they can really pry people away from Facebook... maybe as an addition to Gmail? But really I think Google is a little late on this release, and it sure isn't an Android! Here...

Are you a Sony fan-boy? Do you crave the incompatible and proprietary? Well Sony is slated to release two new tablets, while maybe not proprietary they will be unique.

The S1 has a 9.4-inch (1280-by-800) display and front and rear cameras, while the S2 has two 5.5-inch displays that...

I know this isn't exactely my standard technical article, but it shows just how much power they can cram into such a small unit. Meet the PSP2 or what Sony is calling "Next-Generation Portable" I doubt the name will stick, its just too vague and not really applicable, as what would they call the...

I was browsing around and came upon an article about Google's new Chrome Netbook. I have been looking around for an image to load up on my Acer Netbook, as it would probably run a little smoother than Windows XP, besides, all i ever used that Netbook for was playing music, watching videos, and...

Mark Zuckerberg has been working on a modern messaging system that will give people the choice of where and when they want any of their emails, sms, Facebook messages, or from what it seems any messaging source. I gather this would be huge if he pulls it off, as the 500 million people who are...
