The Tesla Model S has been out for some time, but I’ve never had the pleasure of seeing on in person. At CES I was fortunate enough to get to sit in the Model S and get a demo of the touch screen. I also had a chance to...Read More
This past weekend was filled with speculation of new iMac’s and an event coming up. March 24th looked to be our date and now we have what seems to be a confirmation of new products coming out tomorrow on the 3rd. See below what product updates will ensue:Read More
A photo of the supposed back cover of the upcoming iPhone has been found. This cover shows an almost rubber or satin look and based on what we and other have found, it looks to be authentic. There is no confirmation, but we do believe a new iPhone is coming this mid-year as the past two models have. See the other photo after the jump…Read More
The latest update to the iPhone firmware hints at a new model in the works. Within the code Apple has always used different numbers to represent the iPhone models. For example, "iPhone 1,1" is the original iPhone while the 3G iPhone is labeled "iPhone 1,2". The new label is now "iPhone 2,1", and confirms a change is coming soon. If Apple is using the same schedule it has used for the past couple of iPhone releases, then we could count on a June or July release.
Mac Rumors also notes that:
"Meanwhile, at least one developer has noticed actual "iPhone2,1" models in use based on PinchMedia ad serving reports. (Other numbers blurred out)."
We already know that Walmart is going to be selling the iPhone in their stores this month. The one thing we did not know is they may be selling a 4GB version of the iPhone 3G for $99. The first iPhone came in 4GB and 8GB. Apple later did away with these models for 8GB and 16GB models. A 4GB model may not appeal to those who already have an iPhone, but it may appeal greatly with those who do not yet have the iPhone. It has been said by analysts in the past that iPhone could feasibly be sold for $99, so this is definitely likely.
Microsoft has cut the price of the Zune today, making the 4GB version come in under $100 at just $99. They have also lowered the rest of teh models as well. The 8GB model will drop by $10 to $139, and the 16GB model will sell for $179, down from $199. The Zune is turning out to be a great buy for those who do not prefer an iPod.

Apple also updated their MacBook Air line to include new NVIDIA GPU’s, some more storage and speed.

$1,799 13.3" LED-backlit display, Nvidia GeForce 9400M GPU, 1.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 6 MB L2 Cache, 2 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 Memory, 120 GB SATA hard drive.Read More
If you venture over to nVidia’s site, they have a promotional page that shows this photo and says they are "optimizing the notebook". This certainly is a MacBook, but does not look exactly like the current models. We o know the new MacBooks will have nVidia chipsets in them, but we doubt that Apple would allow them to show this off unless of course Apple doesn’t know.
Since the recent price cut (see story) sales for the Xbox 360 have gone up 100%. "Retailers reported a 100 percent increase in sales for all models compared with the previous weekend, Redmond, Washington- based Microsoft said in an e-mailed statement." Great news for the Xbox fanboys, not so great for the rest…
The new Slingbox Pro HD and Slingbox Slingcatcher are now up for pre-sale. The cost is $299 for each and there is no mention of the ship date as of this time. If you are not familiar, Slingboxes allow you to watch your cable or satellite service remotely over the internet. Definitely worth check these out along with their other models if this is up your alley.
