Nokia N900 Maemo 5 Shown Off In Very Vibrant Video

Nokia World is coming. Did you get the memo? Or, should we say, Maemo? If you didn't, you probably still already know about it, considering "we've covered" already. And starting tomorrow, the news will start to take on a far more official standpoint. Not that the Nokia N900 isn't official, because it certainly is, but sometimes getting the information from the horse's mouth is a lot better. And who can say no to press events? We certainly can't. But just in case all those still images of the upcoming Rover weren't doing it for you, here's a video of Maemo 5, the User Interface (UI).

It's a place where, once it happens, all we can hope to do at the next point is keep looking forward, and see what's next. In the case of the Rodem, designed by a Japanese firm for the elderly, that's exactly what happened. Except, as much as we want to look ahead and wonder, we can't seem to look away from this thing.

LG 15-inch OLED TV Planned for September Launch

On Sunday, LG announced that they are going ahead and releasing their previously planned 15-inch AMOLED television, and sooner than we could have hoped. If September wasn't big enough already, LG wants to wiggle in and make sure that you get to watch "your Zune HD" via a great looking, and brilliant display. But, are our wallets ready for another OLED tv? If LG can officially ship this thing, then we'd like to hope so.

Samsung Application Store Unveiled by Samsung Mobile

Samsung Application Store Unveiled by Samsung Mobile

TouchWiz wasn't the greatest. TouchWiz 2.0 was a huge leap in the right direction. But there was always going to be something holding back Samsung from taking any steps forward in the mobile marketplace, and it had nothing to do with proprietary software on their phones. They lacked what everyone else and their second-cousin has: a way to get first- and third-party developed applications onto their phones. Well, it looks like that's about to change.

An iPhone Arms-Race to Nowhere

An iPhone Arms-Race to Nowhere

In Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, there is a line from the Red Queen, in which she states, “It takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.” In evolution, this is a theory that is also known as an “arms race to nowhere”, in which two different species evolve in tandem, one after the other, in an infinite loop. The reason, is because as one system evolves, then the other must evolve with it, just to keep pace.

And so the system is unending and essential for the survival of a species.

It’s no different in the technology ecosystem. In fact, it’s a lot more evident there, as we can see the fruits of these evolutionary developments as clear as day. We watched as the iPhone became the iPhone 3G, and while it may not have been leaps and bounds ahead of its predecessor in a lot of ways, we witnessed the 3G become the 3GS. And in turn, we saw almost every other major phone manufacturer develop phones to counter the iPhone. You’ve heard of them: the mythical iPhone killer.
