January 5, 2010 Leave a comment

With CES right around the corner (January 7-10) and with all the press events going on right now, I thought I would give a daily round-up of all that went down.

Today, January 5th, has been a fairly quiet one, but we have already seen some interesting products/concepts!  Here is a rundown on what we have seen thus far:

-Lenovo IdeaPad U1 Hybrid Hands-On

-3D TV is going to be HUGE at CES- ESPN has already set a date for when they will be airing a 3D World Cup.

-Skype HD: Skype directly through your LG or Panasonic TV

-ASUS has a slew of new netbooks, laptops, and desktops- Unveiled at their press event

-Spring Design Alex dual-screen, Android based e-reader

That was about it for today’s CES news- I’m sure that there were a few things that I may have missed, but I will do my best to catch any and all that comes out of CES this week

On a different, but somewhat similar note;

Android 2.0 Launched; SDK Support; One More Step Complete In Google’s Plan For World Domination

October 27, 2009 Leave a comment

Android 2.0 has been launched officially and with some VERY NICE new features.  Heres the release video:

The highlights from the video/release include:

Searchable SMS, Exchange support, more in-depth camera controls, a better keyboard with full multitouch, a revamped browser with a better UI and HTML5 support….New contact setup, Bluetooth with full 2.1 and new profiles and better support for multiple screen sizes, like WVGA (800×480) & FWVGA (854×480)

Being a Verizon customer, I have been excited to hear rumors of the Android 2.0 window of exclusivity that Verizon might have, but I will say that they are doing some exciting things with Android and I know I’m looking forward to seeing it.

Oh, and yes, Google does have plans to take over the world…just you wait.

Google Voice Manages Your Voicemail, Life

October 27, 2009 Leave a comment

The hotly debated and coveted Google Voice service got a new push today-

I present to you the Voicemail feature of Google Voice:

The good thing about this feature is that you use the number that your carrier gave you and you will be able to use features such as:

basics-_-using-a-google-number-vs.-a-non-google-number---google-voice-help

I like the fact that you can review your Voicemail on your computer or via txt message- I know everyone has been in the situation where your in the same room as your current boss and the hiring manager from another job is calling you, but you can’t take that call because your current boss is right THERE.   What was I talking about?

Oh yes, I like this feature of Google Voice, but the only thing I am worried about is giving Google access to allllllll of my data.  I mean, I like Google, and I just hope I can trust them with my important voicemails…and my life.

Verizon “Droid”, More Than Just A Phone…And More Than Meets The Eye

October 25, 2009 Leave a comment

It seems that the Verizon “Droid” that we have all been hearing about isn’t just a single phone, but a series of Android based devices coming in the next few months.

The newest arrival in the “Droid” series is the Droid Eris, which is being made by HTC.  Here is a picture of it:

The device was shown of by both Verizon and Google at an event earlier this month.  When it was revealed, all of the attendees SWORE that it was the HTC Hero, but Verizon and Google SWEAR that it isn’t and it is a brand new phone.

The devices will have a .2-inch HVGA screen, Wi-Fi, 5-MPx camera, and GPS.  It will run the Google’s Android OS and users will have access to the over 10,000 apps currently available on the Android Market.

It looks pretty nice…and by pretty nice, I mean completely like the HTC Hero- Only time will tell if this Droid marketing ploy will work for Verizon, but branching out into the Android market is sure to help
