Apple Suing Samsung? Really?

20 Apr 2011  2 Comments

Apple are suing Samsung for infringing on patent for the original iPhone design. Apple are claiming that Samsung’s Galaxy line is a straight copy from their work and the Galaxy S is just too similar the the iPhone/iPhone 3G/3GS.

The funny thing is that Steve Jobs in an interview done way back in 1994 (back when apple were the underdog) said that “We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas”.

Also, LG also complained when the original iPhone was introduced that Apple is is trying to copy the LG Prada. A device that was first announced on December 12, 2006.

4 Apr 2011  No Comments

The new HTC Flyer looks like it will be bringing back the pen/stylus input back to the tablet the is scheduled for released later this month. The HTC Flyer has a single-core 1.5Ghz processor and  comes with android 2.3 but HTC promised a Honeycomb update “later this year”

I love the 7” size, but not sure what will the future hold for a tablet not following the rest of the bunch by having the dual-core Tegra 2 chip and Google’s new strict Android guidelines.

Android 3.0 Preview

7 Jan 2011  No Comments

Google really meant it when they said that they are developing a tablet centric version of android. Honeycomb looks like its going to be great. I’ve always complained about the waste of space and lack of live info on the iPad’s screen. And it looks like the 3.0 version of android is going to fix that.

The first Honeycomb device should be out as early as March.

My Blackberry Curve 8900 is in Endless “App Error 523″ Restart Cycle

31 Oct 2010  4 Comments

I woke up Thursday morning to find my Curve displaying the image above.It was reading “App Error 523″ and the next line has a clickable “Restart” button. I thought it was no biggy and I’ll just restart the device. but after a lengthy restart I get the same screen again. I didn’t install any new program and before going to bed I was checking my messages and it was working fine.
This sucks because this is my main phone and communication device. Nothing beats a good physical keyboard. Have to check with an expert for a solution.
