Verizon FiOS internet speed boost: up to 20Mbps uploads

If you've considered Verizon's FiOS internet service but dismissed it for being too slow for your tastes, the news that they're speeding up the fiber-optic system will come as a pleasant surprise.  The company is boosting downlink/uplink speeds of its entry-level package from 10/2 Mbps to 15/5 Mbps, while the mid-tier 20/5 Mbps climbs to 25/15 Mbps.  New York City and Long Island will see even greater increases.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 20 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 20 2009

We kicked off the week with a review of Sony's OLED Walkman X, coming away mighty impressed by its iPod-besting audio quality.  Equally impressive was Flip Video's Ultra HD pocket camcorder; if only we could say the same for SlingPlayer Mobile for the iPhone.  While on paper this media-shifting app should be a 100-percent winner, AT&T's decision to bar streaming over their 3G network has left us and many would-be users upset.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 46 2008

It's been a mobile device bonanza this week, with the AT&T Fuze landing at SlashGear and promptly getting hauled over to the Sprint HTC Touch Pro for a damned good comparing.  Meanwhile HTC have set tongues wagging by fettling a version of the Touch HD for a Russian WiMAX carrier: they assure us that the HTC MAX 4G won't be showing up anywhere else, but forgive us if we're natural sceptics.  Meanwhile Verizon finally confirmed that the BlackBerry Storm 9530 would hit stores on November 24th, priced from $199.99, AT&T released the QuickFire, and Nokia confirmed the open-secret that is the E63 smartphone.

Flip minoHD hands-on review

Pure Digital launched their latest point and shoot camcorder today, the high-definition Flip MinoHD.  Keeping the same, sleek styling of the Mino camcorder launched back in June, the MinoHD adds 720p recording (1280 x 720) and, at 4GB, double the memory of its standard-definition counterpart.  But has the Flip gone high-maintenance along with high-definition?

Flip MinoHD 720p high-definition plug & play camcorder

Flip have announced their latest camcorder, the MinoHD, capable of recording 720p high-definition widescreen footage to its 4GB of internal memory.  Designed with the same, ease-of-use principles as the rest of the Flip range, the MinoHD has a 1.5-inch glare-free display, minimal controls (which are touch sensitive) and built-in FlipShare editing and uploading software that installs automatically via the pop-out USB 2.0 port.  In a first for the company, you can specify custom casing designs either from a range of existing options or by uploading your own image.
