The Daily Slash: December 1 2010

Oh my goodness! Crazy speeds and companies blowing up and phones being thrown around like candy! All the signs of a great day here at the R3 Media Network! First, SlashPhone breaks some news about Motorola being divided into two different divisions starting at the beginning of 2011. Then Google Reader sends an app to Android (making it even MORE impossible to get away from the news!) Angry Birds gets a Seasons expansion for Android devices (probably in the chute for Apple's App Store.) And finally, Vince has his hands on one of the incredibly small amount of LG VL600 Modems out in the world right now, and he wants to show you Verizon's LTE "4G" network speeds first hand, and Ben wants to tell you all about why Verizon's LTE and the other 4G networks are important. All this and... yes! More! Today on The Daily Slash!

The Daily Slash: November 24 2010

It's a massive day for posts, where even SlashPhone has a fresh blast of news on this pre-holiday day. Lots of sales, lots of products being introduced. And then there was Black Friday. So much Black Friday you're going to explode! Luckily, we've got a column for you by the fabulous Don Reisinger titled Black Friday Is Never Good For MY Tech Addiction. Of course, if you just can't get enough of the Black Friday goodness, we've got a littering of links to sales below plus one list-tastic post by the name of The SlashGear Black Friday Deal Guide of Complete Excellence, an ever-growing post where you'll not only find a batch of odd sales you almost certainly find listed anywhere else, but a split between offline and online so that you might choose to sit at home and chill or rough it out with the maniacs! Then we've got a lone review, one single review for the most amazing Samsung 256GB SSD 470 Series SSD. Stay tough, and be thankful for what you've got today (and tomorrow!) on The Daily Slash!

Opera 11 beta adds tab stacks & speed boost [Video]

Opera 11 beta adds tab stacks & speed boost [Video]

Opera has pushed out the first beta of Opera 11, the latest iteration of its browser and the first to support tab stacking. Billed as a less cluttered and more intuitive way to deal with tabs than the regular side-by-side layout, groups can be organized by site or by theme, and new stacks created by simply dropping one tab onto another (a little like how iOS folders work). Meanwhile Opera 11 also gets extension support, mouse gestures and more.

Opera Blasts Back with Version 11 Alpha

Opera Blasts Back with Version 11 Alpha

Remember the last time you opened Opera? I can't. Not because I don't think it's a good way to surf the web, but because there's not been any good news about it for at least a couple of days! These internets think in such a way, I'm not alone, and the folks responsible for creating Opera basically know this too. Thus, they're popping out a new baby: Opera 11. The alpha version of the browser is out today, and you're free to use it - and it will have Extensions!

The Daily Slash: July 8th 2010

Thursday night -- the night before the end of the work week. We can feel the excitement. Can you? Well, unless your work week is just getting started, or doesn't even start until this weekend. Then we feel your pain. But let's try to focus on the fun tonight, shall we? Welcome to tonight's edition of The Daily Slash. In the Best of R3 Media, we've got a new release date for the Vibrant, Apple may have used their kill switch, and Opera Mini's been updated. And then in the Dredge 'Net, a solar plane flies 26 hours, AQUA2 is another aquatic robot, and a foldable bike exists.

Over one million Opera Mini downloads already

Over one million Opera Mini downloads already

Apple approving Opera Mini for iPhone was perhaps the most surprising event of the week, and it comes as little surprise that owners of the smartphone have been downloading it in their droves.  After leaping to the number one download spot in the 22 featured Apple Stores on the company's site, Opera have just announced that the browser was downloaded more than one million times in its first day of availability in each market.
