Iâ€™ll bet your laptop looks boring. Sure, youâ€™ve got all the latest software and have upgraded the memory yourself, but when you smile over the top of your Widescreen, Webcam-equipped LCD at the girl across from you in the airport terminal, she still regards you like some kind of wacko. Get the girl using the same tricks the rich guys doâ€”with an Acer Ferrari 1000 Notebook PC.
Mobile Phone Heavyweight Nokia has launched a service that will cut the time it takes a GPS enabled phone to locate via satellite virtually in half. This opens the floodgates for GPS based services, an avenue of income the company hopes will pay off. While this new service is only available for the flagship N95 phones, one can only assume that it will eventually make its way into other high end Nokias.
What is a Smartphone?
The word “Smartphone” is a newly minted term thatâ€™s used to describe a Telephone-capable device that also provides information and data organization capabilities. They are similar in size, shape, and usage to [tag]Cellular Phones[/tag], but feature more extensive data organization software and web abilities. Smartphones are equipped with complete operating systems that determine what kinds of functions and applications are available for that device. They provide a convenient way to carry several hand-held digital devices in one body. They provide the data and contact organization of a [tag]PDA[/tag], connectivity of a cellular phone, along with advanced multimedia like access to [tag]email[/tag] and can in most cases support web browsing.
Thereâ€™s one thing keeping most of us from getting our hands on a Flat Panel Televisionâ€”we donâ€™t have a thousand dollars. If we did, weâ€™d probably have to spend it on anything from car repairs to the mortgage payment to giving that thousand dollars back to whoever loaned it to us in the first place. But thereâ€™s hope, my low-budget oriented friends: a company called Olevia that creates some impressively high quality LCD flat panels that offer exactly what you need, for less than what youâ€™d expect to pay.
The Europian Union and the USA may be close to a deal that combines their respective GPS satellite networks. If the information from these two separate satellite systems is combined the result could be a previously unparalleled network of images and geographic information.

I have been openly critical of Smartphone designs in the past. During the advent and development of these new mobile communications devices, I found much fault in the massive size, unwieldy keypads, and quasi-functional styluses used to navigate these convoluted technological wonders. Thatâ€™s why I wish to offer my apologies to the much-maligned Smartphone form factorâ€”thanks in no small part to the two Smartphones weâ€™ve recently had here in the TigerTV labs. Iâ€™m talking about the Palm Treo 680 and the Nokia E62 Unlocked GSM Smartphones.
Who Likes Home Theater? I know I do. Now, my home theater consists of a torn leather couch (courtesy of my dog) and an old CRT television (courtesy of my friend who upgraded) connected to a set of 5.1 surround sound speakers. Hey, I only work with electronics. They donâ€™t let me take them home. They shouldâ€”especially this Philips 42PF9731D 42-Inch HD LCD Television.
At the risk of over-using the term Blingâ€”you may want to take a look at this piece oâ€™ shine. Iâ€™m talking (as does anyone who sees it) about the Motorola K1 KRZR Gold Edition Unlocked GSM Cell Phone. While the Smartphone battle between Palm, Blackberries, and iPhones rages on without hope of resolution, Motorola has quietly introduced the successor to the RAZR flip phone (remember how cool this phone was when it was initially introduced?) and no so quietly, covered it with gold.
