AT&T and RIM Event Scheduled for August 3rd, New Device and OS6 Showcased?

AT&T and RIM Event Scheduled for August 3rd, New Device and OS6 Showcased?

Sure enough, here's the invite. Research In Motion and AT&T are apparently teaming up to bring some big news to the industry, and they've chosen their date, along with the early morning hours of that date, to break the news. Unfortunately, unlike past invites to other events, this one doesn't give us any clues as to what may be getting announced come August 3rd. But, we've got our guesses.

SanDisk Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drive Weighs as Much as a Penny

SanDisk Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drive Weighs as Much as a Penny

Smaller is better -- that must be the slogan that SanDisk is banking on with the creation of the Cruzer Blade, which takes small to a whole new level, especially when it comes to USB flash drives. This newly announced piece of tech is about the size of a paperclip, and it actually only weighs about the same as a penny. Yes, that's ridiculous, but there's still plenty of space on the inside to actually be worth your while.

Sony Move $349 Bundle Rumored, Offers Smaller Hard Drive

Sony Move $349 Bundle Rumored, Offers Smaller Hard Drive

It wouldn't be a normal day if we didn't have some kind of rumor about an already announced product. Thankfully, we've got this new rumor about Sony's Move, the motion-based controller/wand that's due out in just a few months. It's not groundbreaking or anything, but it may be just enough to get people who thought the original $399 bundle was too pricey to jump on board the Sony-backed motion controller movement.

REEM-H1 Robot Will Roll Around in Hotels and Museums, Maybe

REEM-H1 Robot Will Roll Around in Hotels and Museums, Maybe

Pal Robotics have created the REEM-H1 prototype, a robot that's designed to function within the service industry. Specifically, they believe it will be a great addition to the staff present at hotels, museums, and office buildings. And considering those wheels hanging out beneath the robot, making it so that it can roll around and not have to worry about that whole pesky walking thing, we might be in agreement with them.

Intel Photonics Link Brings 50Gbps Data Transfers to Reality

Intel Photonics Link Brings 50Gbps Data Transfers to Reality

Yes, that says 50Gbps. But, that's not all the good news. Today, Intel unveiled their brand new module that will revolutionize, if not completely blow our minds in regard to how we transfer data, and how quickly it can be done. Sadly, and as much as we wish we could see it become one, the Photonics Link isn't quite yet a product that we can go out and install in our computers. In fact, there's no word on when this will actually see the light of day. But, it is a perfect method to show us what's coming down the pipe.

Amazon Kindle Sold Out: No Estimated Date of Availability

Amazon Kindle Sold Out: No Estimated Date of Availability

To our recollection, this actually hasn't happened in quite some time. To be exact, in 2008, when it was the original Kindle. And, even then, Amazon managed to make sure they told customers when the Kindle would be coming back around, or shipping to their doorsteps. Not this time. All Amazon says right now is that the Kindle is temporarily out of stock, and that purchasers will get an email when the eReader gets an estimated delivery date.

If you've got an apartment that has more than one bedroom, or it's anything bigger than a studio, then you probably won't need this (unless it just interests you that much).

Designed for the smaller apartments out there, it's specifically created to bring together all of your most-used appliances.

Basically, you're preordering a car, but with as many other things you preorder at any given time in the year, what's a car?

NVIDIA has outed its latest Fermi-based cards, the NVIDIA Quadro Plex 7000 array, and Quadro 6000, Quadro 5000 and Quadro 4000 GPUs, targeting graphics professionals that might weep in excitement over the fact that they're apparently up to five times faster for 3D applications and up to eight times faster for computational simulation.  While most models are intended for desktop workstations, there's also the Quadro 5000M chipset for mobile workstations.

Nokia N8 preorders cancelled by Amazon Germany

Nokia N8 preorders cancelled by Amazon Germany

Amazon Germany has apparently begun cancelling Nokia N8 preorders, according to FinestFones, informing customers by email that while the retailer had attempted to source the smartphone in a timely manner, they had been unable to do so with the Symbian^3 smartphone.  Interestingly, they also say that while they try to ensure their database is up to date, manufacturers sometimes change their release plans; it's unclear whether Nokia has been delayed in its release intentions for the N8, which many had expected sometime in August.
