Tab sharing feature lands on stable version of Microsoft Edge

Some browsers allow users to share tabs they have opened between devices easily. The big benefit of sharing tabs between devices is that you don't have to create an email or instant message using an application to send something you want to look at from your computer to your phone or vice versa.

T-Mobile breaks 1 million iPhone mark on EDGE

Amid AT&T's new unlocking of their off-contract iPhones in collaboration with Apple officially, T-Mobile has chosen this opportune moment to announce that they've already got 1 million iPhone customers on their network. They do this with the micro-SIM cards they've already got available for sale separate from smartphones for their network along with lower prices than AT&T is offering, albeit with slower speeds for the uploading and downloading of data.

LG GD510 “Pop”: style & solar charging, but short on specs

LG GD510 “Pop”: style & solar charging, but short on specs

Sometimes a gadget comes along that is so pretty that, when you realise it has a spec-sheet more barren than the Sahara, you can't help but tear at your chest and roar.  LG's GD510 "Pop" isn't quite so bad as all that, but it's a handsome 3-inch touchscreen phone - the most compact ever with such a screen-size, they say - with a brushed aluminum body that throws out most of the things we take for granted in today's handsets.  WiFi we can live without, but a handset lacking 3G?  For shame!

Garmin nuvi 1800-series PNDs leak; EDGE-packing 1690 confirmed for $500
