The New iPad Can Run As A LTE Hotspot for 25 Hours

Qualcomm put together this snazzy video for your enjoyment. I thought it was pretty neat. I did chuckle a little at the stupidity of a beetle flying out of a canon. While I am not really sure what this has to do with the Snapdragon processor or Qualcomm I am pretty sure it’s worth a […]

This, to me, seems dumb. You guys know I’m no chef, but I can’t imagine how this would be a good idea. The Electrolux concept laptop, that includes an induction-powered hotplate, and a removable cutting board, could be aimed at travelers and campers, though how successfully is unclear.

So I woke up this morning excited to see that the new GingerBread base for the Thunderbolt was leaked last night (Version 2.07.605.0). Sense or not, I’m always down for flashing the “latest and greatest”. So I was highly disappointed when I flashed it only to have all my root permissions denied. Far be it from me to […]
