Microsoft had a big announcement just a little bit ago. I'm not sure why companies have to announced things at midnight when most of the working world is in bed. Luckily, we don't sleep here at Slashgear. They are officially launching the Surface.

Helio Releases New MySpace for Ocean Users

Have you noticed that if you try to get on MySpace by using its URL to view the website outside of 'Myspace on Helio' you simply can't? I mean sure, one of Helio's biggest boasts is their access to Helio that - until recently - no one else had. Although I like this feature it just seemed so plain.

Malaysian theaters are equipping staff with night vision

Combating piracy is no small task. Movie theaters in Malaysia are doing their part to stop it at the source. Movie theaters.

The difficult part about doing this is that camcorders are getting smaller and cell phones are getting better cameras. Not to mention it's dark in a theater. While they can't stop people from bringing in their phones, they have solved the problem of seeing in the dark. Malaysian theaters have begun equipping their staff with night-vision goggles to catch the would-be pirates.

PQI announces ReadyBoost drive

Since I've been using Windows Vista, I've tried out the ReadyBoost feature, and found only minimal gains with various different flash drives. We've seen other drives specifically for ReadyBoost, but how does this one from PQI stack up?
