Dell Streak $550 price posted then pulled

Dell Streak $550 price posted then pulled

Looks like whoever's running Dell's servers needs to drink less coffee.  After first announcing that the 5-inch Dell Streak Android tablet would go on sale today - and then telling us that it was a mistake caused by some "site tests"  - the company then revealed pricing in a new blog post, only to yank that.  Unfortunately, once something is out on the internet it's tough to get it back in, and so we now have a pretty good idea that the Streak will cost $549.99 from Dell themselves, unlocked and contract-free, or $299.99 from AT&T with a new, two-year agreement.

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.
