Blu-Ray won, but is it better for the consumer?

So Toshiba conceded in the Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD battle and all of their mates quickly fell with them. Since then things haven’t gotten better for the consumer. Sure your new PS3 comes with a Blu-Ray player and that makes it a nice format, but HD-DVD had affordable prices for both its players and discs, Blu-Ray players are still astronomically priced almost making the PS3 the most economical option.

Nokia N810 running Android OS – could be better than OS2008 for the N810

Some enterprising fellows over at eLinux.org have found a way to get Google’s Android OS onto a Nokia N810 with its OMAP2 chips, which means this particular hack should also work with some Sharp Zaurus models. Anyways, the Android OS looks simply heavenly on the N810 and just goes to further prove that the OS isn’t limited by a cellular connection, it can work on a broad range of mobile devices.

Lady Attaché flash drive from PNY – even Paris would say “That’s Hot!”

This new flash drive from PNY doesn’t have any special technical features, it packs in your choice of two or four gigabytes of storage and is built in such a way that when closed the USB port is protected. What it does have is a bit of fashionable appeal attached to it due to its design, shape, and color allowing it to be an attractive storage option to all the ladies out there who prefer attractive gadgets.

Collusion ban ends – now we find out what’s going to happen with that 700MHz spectrum

Verizon got most of C-Block and have admitted they intent to use it for their 4th generation LTE network, which will replace their 3G EV-DO Rev. A network.

Olive Media OPUS No4 Home Music Server – an interior decorator’s dream

I can only imagine how many times someone has been designing the interior of a high end house, ran across the list of requirements, saw music server, and immediately started thinking of ways/places to hide it away in. Well, with this unit you won’t have to or want to hide it away as it’s actually quite attractive and is more functional when out in the open where you can use the touchscreen which appears to feature some sort of CoverFlow-like browsing system.

Sony HandyCam HDR-TG1 (or TG3 in Europe) – shiny, but does it work?

Things I like about this camera: the up to 1080i recording resolution, the shiny exterior, the fact that it comes with 4GB of storage. Things I don’t like about this camera: the 4GB of storage come on a Memory Stick PRO Duo card and the AVCHD recording codec.
