So while one phone one one particular network is finally the real deal, we've still got plenty of concept designs out there, showing off what the future of cellphones might look like. This design, called the Trypoxy Phone from designers Miyazawa Tetsu and Ichimura Shigenori, combines the look of a pebble, an intuitive touchscreen, and a hand-hold that actually extends from the back of the device.
Before all else, lets travel into the future - behold Technology Predictions for 2011 by supreme master predictor mister Ben Bajarin. Stay futuristic with another prediction by Chris Davies: 2011: The Year of Pentaband? Then come back to the now and here where a man punches a 15 year old in the arm for not turning off his iPhone. Reflect back on the blue and the green with Philip Berne in a column by the name of What I Learned From a Year in 3D.

And what's this - Verizon to focus on Android, not iPhone at CES 2011? All this and MORE on The Daily Slash!
Google shook up the Android world with the Nexus One, throwing down the gauntlet to manufacturers to step up their hardware game and pushing the open-source platform to the bleeding edge of smartphone functionality. Now the search giant is back with its second self-branded device, the Nexus S, a Samsung-made handset with a few unique features of its own. Is this the best Android smartphone today, or just another Galaxy S sibling? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
So you've got a decision to make now that Nexus S has officially been announced, yes? You're sitting around with your Nexus One or Galaxy S device, (we use Samsung Vibrant in this comparison, then additional Galaxy S devices,) and you're wondering if it'll be a smart move to switch over to the Nexus S when it's time for you to get a new phone. Well! We've got just the compare and contrast for you! Take a peek here for a full rundown of what you're going to be up against when you take that step into the world of Android phone switching in these late 2010 and early 2011 months.

These tires, constructed out of 800 interwoven load bearing springs, were awarded a 2010 R&D Award for their fabulous new airlessness. This award is also known as the Oscars of innovation, so it's big freaking honor to say the least. This tire was created by NASA and Goodyear, so you know it was going to be a big deal out the door, and was made for use on the moon. Moon tires of the past were still just rubber, rubber that didn't exactly hold up in heat, cold, and solar radiation. These new tires basically don't even care about any of that ol' crap.
There's Moshka, Gucci, and Oakley (tied to Tron:Legacy) already, now the newest pair of 3D glasses announced by an international fashion brand is Calvin Klien.

In the world of earphones, there are some obvious tiers: the bundled earbuds that came with your PMP or cellphone and should probably be dumped straight away; their mainstream replacements; off-the-shelf in-ear monitors (IEMs); and then custom-molded IEMs. There's also a less publicized hierarchy, of the audio craftsmen behind the IEMs themselves. Ask an audiophile their opinion of Jerry Harvey, and you can probably expect an hour or two of hero-worship; having tested out the new JHAudio JH16 Pro custom IEMs, we now know why. Check out the full review after the cut.
