Just after CES I began to wonder what was up with Fusion Garage and the JooJoo tablet. I was under the impression that I would have had a review unit during the holidays. That obviously didn’t happen and so I did what anyone would do – bug PR. I didn’t actually ask about review units; I thought the JooJoo had become vaporware given …
Google can deny it all they want, but they are getting into the hardware business. It started with the Nexus One earlier this year and will continue with the Google Chrome OS netbook(s) that are slated to launch in Q4. And now we have the Google Chrome OS tablet.
Google’s Senior Software Engineer Glen Murphy posted a handful of …
On Friday, Logitech pushed out the Touch Mouse app that turns your iPhone and/or iPod Touch into – you guessed it – a mouse that works over the network. (I wonder what this will be like on the iPad.) The app is free (iTunes link) and you’re going to have to download the Touch Mouse Server software (link to Logitech), but it’s …
Whether we’re talking about its features (or lack there of) or giggling over its name, the iPad continues to be the talk of the town from Silicon Valley to bumpkin BFE to Silicon Alley.

This is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.
Nintendo President Satoru Iwata had this to say about the Apple iPad, “It was a bigger iPod Touch” and that it delivered “no surprises.” Umm. Correct me if I’m wrong, Iwata-san, but isn’t that exactly what the DSi XL is? I initially pooh-poohed the iPad, but it …

Yes, the iPad is a ginormous iPod Touch with a tweaked UI, but it’s still pretty cool. It’s surprisingly lightweight and the screen is just as responsive as the one on the iPhone and iPod Touch. What’s more impressive than the large 9.7-inch touch-screen is the speed with which Web pages get rendered and how well it’s able to scale …

It’s an exciting day for Apple fans across the globe as we all wait with bated breath for Steve Jobs to take center stage at the Yerba Buena Center in San Francisco for the tablet reveal. It’s a shame that Terry McGraw spoiled all the fun on CNBC last night. Oh well. I’m still excited to see what all the fuss is about and I plan on …
FULL LIST: Start the timeline here.
The week leading up to any Apple announcement is filled with speculation and alleged “insider info” that comes from “various sources” that seemingly come out of the woodwork. But how are we to know what’s fact or fiction? Are stories of the “Apple Gestapo” and controlled leaks true? …
And so begins our on the ground coverage of Apple’s upcoming “Latest Creation” event in San Francisco. I just stopped by the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and they’re just now starting to set up the exterior. Poked around a little bit but everything is locked up pretty tight. Didn’t see anything on the inside worth taking photos of …
In a rather long-winded story published by the WSJ tonight this week, a handful of new facts have been revealed about Apple’s purported iSlate/iTablet/iPad. You know, the one that’s supposed to be announced next Wednesday in San Francisco. I’ll save you the trouble of reading the whole thing because we’ve mostly covered it all on …
