YouTube Play 2010 : 23,000 Creative Music / Video Works, 25 Finalists

Sony 320GB PlayStation 3 Heading to Retail Without Move Bundle

The 320GB version of the PlayStation 3 isn't all that new. It's been included in the Move bundle since the launch of the motion-based peripheral and camera. But, Sony apparently believes that while the Move bundle is the best way to go, they want to at least give the option for a Move-less console for anyone out there who doesn't want to get off their couch.

Verizon and AT&T Begin iPad Sales Across US

Verizon is telling you now to UNLEASH the iPad while AT&T merely notes that it is Now Available at select stores.

Acer Aspire One D255 Review

Acer Aspire One D255 Review

What difference a dual-core? As we've seen from the ASUS Eee PC 1215N, just because an ultraportable might be called a netbook, it doesn't mean it's necessarily short on power. Still, the Acer Aspire One D255 doesn't get NVIDIA's Optimus GPU to bolster its appeal, nor a desktop Atom CPU co-opted into mobile duty. Instead it offers the dualcore 1.5GHz Atom N550 and a mere 1GB of RAM. Are we expecting too much from this budget machine? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

O2 Galaxy Tab priced at ridiculous £600

Perhaps we're naive, but we're not sure UK carrier O2 actually want to sell any of Samsung's Galaxy Tab.  Official pricing has been announced, ahead of the Froyo slate's release on November 1, and it turns out that not only is O2 not subsidizing the Tab, they're actually asking for more than most other retailers.
