iPad Magazine PROJECT to Launch Tomorrow with TRON Legacy Cover Story

iPad Magazine PROJECT to Launch Tomorrow with TRON Legacy Cover Story

Last we reported, Richard Branson would be releasing his iPad magazine by the name of "Project" as soon as this week. Turns out that's pretty much the truth, as word now is that the first issue is due tomorrow (November 30, 2010) or the next day (December 1, 2010 is what the cover appears to read) with a cover featuring none other than Jeff Bridges and a cover story on TRON: Legacy. Take a peek at the teaser video of what appears to be the front of the magazine below, and freak out because it's no static cover, if you know what I mean.

BlackBerry Empathy Concept Device Can Determine Your Mood [Video]

Sometimes, the mood you're in can determine how you use your phone. Who you talk to, text, or even whether or not you browse the Web while you are out and about. And sometimes it can be frustrating that your phone doesn't feel you. Well, thanks to a pair of designers, that could change some day. This fresh new design for a smartphone, called the BlackBerry Empathy, is designed to not only read your mood, but also react to it.

TRON: Legacy Light Cycle USB Drives Light Up When Connected

TRON: Legacy Light Cycle USB Drives Light Up When Connected

If anyone thought that the marketing push for the upcoming movie TRON: Legacy was going to die down, it doesn't look like that's going to happen any time soon. Which makes sense, considering the movie is just about to launch on theater screens around the world. And, while perhaps having the "look" of a TRON-themed gadget may be enough, we fully expect a TRON-themed device to light up in some fashion or another. And thankfully these USB drives do just that.

HTC HD7 for T-Mobile Suffering from Death Grip Syndrome [Video]

HTC HD7 for T-Mobile Suffering from Death Grip Syndrome [Video]

While the "Death Grip" may not be the biggest bit of news floating around the Internet anymore, it's obviously still a real problem for companies out there. No one wants to be able to hold their phone in a certain way, and suddenly lose signal. But, it looks like the HTC HD7, which recently launched for T-Mobile USA (and we spent a week with, after reviewing it) is indeed suffering from the same situation as the iPhone 4, when it launched.

Owning a star isn't all that new. People have been registering stars for people for a long time now.

Nintendo Sells 1.5 Million Consoles Over Black Friday Week

Nintendo Sells 1.5 Million Consoles Over Black Friday Week

While Black Friday is over and done with, and we're knee-deep in the savings that come with Cyber Monday, it looks like Nintendo made a killing off the Black Friday week. They sold plenty of consoles, which include members of the DS family, as well as the Wii home console. They sold enough, in fact, that the company feels like a formal press release is the right thing to do. Some may call this bragging, but then again, when you've sold as many consoles as Nintendo did, there might be a little room to do that.

We Need To Talk

We Need To Talk

When I think of the communication breakdown that we're experiencing in our culture, my first instinct is to blame AOL. Yes, AOL, which for many of us was the first way we experienced the Internet. Or, more specifically, I blame Elwood Edwards, whose voice you would hear every time you logged onto AOL and discovered that "You've Got Mail." Was there any sweeter sound? It was so optimistic. A lilting tone with an upward lift at the end. A single spondaic stress with an iamb at the end. It was like the dinging sound of a slot machine when you win. Vegas casinos have long known that people will associate that ringing with winning in a Pavlovian sense, and will keep inserting money not just until they win, but until they hear the reassuring "ding." The same was true for AOL. We would log on multiple times, waiting as the page slowly filled in over our dial-up connections, until the end when Mr. Edwards would make his proud proclamation. Or not, at which point we'd feel dejected. Like we had failed, somehow.
