PS3 Blu-Ray Profile 1.1: does it live up to expectations?

We try to keep our readers with up-to-date with the latest technology and news, but occasionally a few things get delayed, like the PS3’s Blu-Ray Profile 1.1 update that’s been out for a few weeks. I didn’t get the first Sony’s Profile 1.1 movie, Resident Evil: Extinction until last week. My lame excuses are: 1) I hate the movie, slouching zombies are getting old and pretty boring, and 2) I’ve never really felt I need Profile 1.1. But I do have a job to do, so here’s the SlashGear hands-on report on the Profile 1.1 update.

SlashGear Review: T-Mobile SideKick LX

Alright, so I got the Sidekick LX the other day, and I have been playing with it for a while. The people at T-Mobile were great and sent me the device to toy around with, sadly the service where I live is shoddy at best, but the city where I go to school has great service, so I got to really test it out up there.

First off, let me state that I have never even seen a Sidekick before this one, so, this won’t be a review comparing this Sidekick to other previous Sidekicks, this will be a review about this Sidekick model, with comparisons to other devices I have used where applicable. Let me start by saying that this may not be the best phone if have ever had my hands on, but it is the best everything-else device I have had my hands on.
