Garmin Nuvifone is the phone of my dreams

I could go on about how similar to the iPhone this phone is, but I won’t, I’ll simply summarize it by saying that I have an iPod Touch, and I love it, but I think this Garmin Nuvifone would more than fill the smartphone void in my digital life. It has a proprietary Garmin OS, HSDPA, Quad-band GSM, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, and a 3.5” touchscreen (not sure if its multi-touch, but that definitely is the same size screen as the iPhone).

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.

Apple TV Take 2

I don’t recall what the old interface looked like, but the new interface looks amazing and makes heavy use of the CoverFlow technology, in a very good way. The ability to use it without a PC is also a great feature, and it’s more power efficient that way.

MacBook Air – first impression

Alright, so, I don’t have any experience actually using a Mac, so I didn’t even bother using the software, I’ll stick to talking about the hardware. Lets start with the weight, 3 pounds sounds like a lot for something that is so thin, but I’ve had analog notebooks (as in paper) that were only marginally thinner but still weighed more.
