TRON: Evolution Collector’s Edition Announced, Has Toy Light Cycle Inside

With the release of the TRON sequel just about on us (it's going to be the perfect Christmas gift, after all), there's no reason you should be surprised to see that the video game version's Collector's Edition has just broken cover. As many "collector's" items go, there's always a few goodies inside to make your purchase, which is usually a bit more expensive than the "normal" edition, worthwhile. That's certainly the case with this one.

Wolfhound Used to Sniff Out Contraband Cell Phones, Isn’t a Real Dog

Wolfhound Used to Sniff Out Contraband Cell Phones, Isn’t a Real Dog

You may have missed it, but back in July, the House of Representatives here in the United States put a ban on prisoners having access to mobile phones. The same rules apply in prison systems all over the world; for example, a gadget called the Wolfhound was just used to find 10 contraband cell phones being utilized inside a prison in Bangkok, Thailand. And, as you can imagine, it's not a real dog.

Thanko HDDV-506 Camcorder Features Swivel Lens

Thanko HDDV-506 Camcorder Features Swivel Lens

Fortunately for cameras and camcorders out there, the price tag doesn't necessarily mean you're getting terrible features, if you're not finding yourself paying a month's paycheck in one sitting. For example, while it may not be the most attractive, or have plenty of features that may shove it to the top of the hill, but it's not terrible, either. Plus, it's got a swiveling lens -- how cool is that, right?

Movie Review: Avatar Special Edition

Movie Review: Avatar Special Edition

It's obvious why "Avatar" was released again, and perhaps a little selfish on the part of the money makers. Near the end of its run, "Avatar" was pushed off a majority of its 3D screens by up-and-comers that couldn't do long term damage, but perhaps shortened the length of the blockbuster's victory lap. The movie could have made more money, so now it has been released again, this time with less than 15 minutes of additional, bonus footage. It's already out on DVD, and you can even get a free copy by buying a new Samsung phone, so is it really worth seeing again on the big screen? Does the movie hold up, now that the hype has worn down? In a word? Hell yeah.

HP Mini 5103 Equipped with Intel Dual-Core Atom N550 Processor Soon

HP Mini 5103 Equipped with Intel Dual-Core Atom N550 Processor Soon

When Intel announces that one of their chips will be appearing in a plethora of netbooks, we can understand why those netbook manufacturers might be slow to update their sites. Especially when the new chip is dropping into netbooks that, for all intents and purposes, are new themselves. For example, it was only the beginning of August that we told you about HP's Mini 5103, which --at the time-- featured Intel's single-core N455 or N475 processors. Well, it looks like that's about to change.

Third Edition of Oxford English Dictionary Likely to be Released in Digital Format, Not Print

Third Edition of Oxford English Dictionary Likely to be Released in Digital Format, Not Print

When it comes to the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), when it's said that there's a lot of hard work that goes into creating it, that's an understatement. Work on the third edition went underway nearly as soon as the second edition was published, with a team of 80 lexicographers behind the wheel, way back in 1989. And, as of right now, it's only 28% complete. With that in mind, the Oxford University Press is giving some serious thought into not publishing the dictionary in a printed format.

Microsoft Xbox LIVE Gold Subscription Price Getting an Increase Starting in November

As of right now, Microsoft charges three separate tiers for access to their globally-available Xbox LIVE service. You can choose from a one month (month-by-month, essentially) plan, to three months at a time, or a year-long price that effectively decreases the overall cost, when compared to those more "monthly" prices. For a year, right now, it will cost you $49.99. But all of that is about to change, as Microsoft has just made official that their Xbox LIVE pricing is about to get a price hike.

Indian BlackBerry “solution” just smoke & mirrors claims RIM source

Indian BlackBerry “solution” just smoke & mirrors claims RIM source

The ongoing Indian BlackBerry saga has taken another strange turn today, with various reports - apparently fuelled by the Indian government - that the Canadian company has provided the department of telecommunications with a "monitoring solution" that will address its concerns regarding messaging encryption.  However, according to The Times of India, the whole "solution" is one big case of smoke and mirrors: their source at RIM says that all the company has done is point the Indian government in the direction of servers physically within the country, and suggested that they talk to them direct.
