iPhone vs. TyTN II Kaiser, which came out on top?

Roughly 20 days ago, I took delivery of a shiny new HTC TyTN II Kaiser (recently re-badged and offered stateside as the at&t Tilt). Similar to the feature packed Nokia N95, HTC’s TyTN II Kaiser pulled out all the stops offering everything you could possibly want in a mobile handset that still managed to fit […]

$200 iPhone price-cut?! I expected that next year

UPDATE 09/06: Steve Jobs posts an open letter confirming that early iPhone adopters will receive a $100 voucher to be used at the Apple Store.

The 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook, no 12.1" MacBook Pro

Anyone who has followed my hardware track record, articles, and Tweets will surely know that when last Tuesday came and went without an update announcement along the lines of ‘The 12" PowerBook grown up, meet the 12.1" MacBook Pro’, I was sorely disappointed. In fact, not too long ago, I even went so far as […]

Talk of iPhone rebates & subsidies, mine is already here

A little over a month ago I shared my surprise and discovery of a little snippet of text on a Cingular receipt that read "iPhone for Derek Punsalan, 2 YR Agreement SAVINGS $150". Looking through some of the comments on that post, as well as the ensuing Digg, a number of individuals believed that it […]

Apple TV needs "streaming" parental controls

Although I have thoroughly enjoyed the Apple TV over the past few days, I raise an eyebrow when I think about Apple’s reasoning for dismissing the idea of Parental Controls for streaming video content. Due to the number of iTunes enabled computers on my home network, and the paltry hardrive included with the Apple TV, […]
