Somewhere Rupert Murdoch is fuming right now. Google has been fighting legal pressure and pressure from some publishers with its book-scanning program for a while now. That pressure hasn't stopped the search giant from looking at other tech that will let it put more print materials online.
Motorola has been struggling more than some phone makers with the poor economy. The fact that before Android Motorola hadn't had a popular device since the RAZR didn’t help things. When Android became popular Motorola pretty much abandoned WinMo and clung to Android the way a drowning man clings to a bit of driftwood.
We heard a while back that ATI had a HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 version coming out that had six DisplayPort outputs. The gamers out there were probably drooling over the thought of gaming across six LCDs. I admit the prospect is very appealing, but I worried about the bezels making the image weird.
I don’t keep a pocketknife or anything other than my wallet and my cell phone on me at any given time. My dad is the sort that thinks every guy on the planet should have a knife in their pocket and is always looking for an excuse to use his knife.

After Palm's dreary financial expectations caused their share price to plummet earlier this week, a leaked email from company CEO Jon Rubinstein has revealed some of the ways the company is looking to boost webOS device sales (together with throw a little blame around). In the email, Rubinstein admits that "this news is difficult to swallow" but claims to have met with Verizon Wireless who "acknowledged that their execution of our launch was below expectations and recommitted to working with us to improve sales." Those tactics will include greater training of Verizon reps by Palm's so-called "Brand Ambassadors", together with more advertising.
Earlier this week I mentioned that Samsung would be sending its new C7000, C8000, and C9000 3D TVs to Europe starting in March. Similar sets will be shipping in the US as well and today a new feature of some of the 2010 Samsung TVs have surfaced.
SilverStone's HDDBOOST seemed too good to be true: a way to combine an SSD with your existing hard-drive to ramp up performance by up to 70-percent without sacrificing capacity or having to reinstall your OS and software. Over the years we've grown suspicious of such claims, but according to HardwareCanucks the HDDBOOST really can deliver some of the speed increase it promises.
