Palm Pre Plus Review: Is Plus Enough?

Palm made a splash at CES in 2009 with the announcement of webOS and I’d say they’ve done a good job maintaining that momentum. A year later, they’ve added Verizon and AT&T to the roster and updated both the Pre and Pixi with – what some might call – minor updates. It’s been a week since the Pre Plus (Pixi Plus, too) went on …

A Simple Way to Scan Your Photos

Scanning things isn’t exactly rocket science but if you’ve ever owned a scanner, I bet you’ve had friends and family members drop off stacks of old photos for you to “just scan real quick!”

And if you really got down to the heart of the matter, you might find that the reason regular people don’t scan their own photos is either pure …

Gallery: Hits and Misses from Apple So Far

We’ve compiled a list of “hits and misses” from Apple so far. We’ll have to wait and see which category Apple’s tablet (or whatever it’s called) falls into. For now, take a look at what we’ve deemed a success — and what we haven’t.

Cyber Clean Goop De-Cruddifies Your Keyboard

Look down at your keyboard right now. Like, really closely.

If it’s more than six months old, you’ll probably notice a bunch of crumbs and gunk in between the keys. There are a few tried and true methods for cleaning your keyboard, like putting it in the dishwasher or using a little Q-tip to scrub between each individual key.

High-Quality Skype Calls on the Cheap

Normally when I catch wind of a product that promises to be “enhanced for this” or “optimized for that” I chalk it up to marketing spin and assume it’ll be priced higher than it should be with the hopes of duping casual consumers into buying it. Such was the case with the Freetalk Everyman Headset for Skype, a product that promises …

18 Android Apps To Get You Started

The Android Market pales in comparison to Apple’s App Store based on number of apps, but that doesn’t mean the quality of apps available to Android users aren’t up to snuff. We’ve listed 12 18 apps that cover a wide range of interests and genres but is not indicative of the Android Market as a whole. Think of this as a starting …

Nexus One Review: The Hardware Isn’t The Problem, Android Is

It’s never an easy task to review a device that you’ve had for less than two or three or even four weeks. The rush of trying to be beat other outlets constantly hangs over your shoulder. Do you rush to get a review out and subject yourself to the criticism that comes with having left off the most critical or asinine factoid possible? …

Virtual Console Classics vs. WiiWare Remixes

One of the best aspects of the Nintendo Wii is the ability to download old-school NES games for $5 a pop. But a trend’s been emerging lately; some classic old franchises are making their way into the WiiWare downloads section, a section that’s normally reserved for games from independent developers and shorter titles from well-known game …

The 10 Greatest Games for the Apple II

All the old people in the house say yeah!

The Apple II is the most underrated gaming platform of the 1980′s. People — me included — talk a lot about the greatness of the Atari 2600, but I owe just as much of my gaming DNA to our Apple IIe, with its 64KB RAM — that comes standard, folks — and its revolutionary four-way cursor …
