Bill Gates is filthy stinking rich. But, did you know that he likes to use his vast fortune to influence media coverage and public opinion?
The mobile industry will soon undergo a massive consolidation of the smartphone/tablet space. We simply have too many vendors and Intel's focused entry later this year should force the ARM vendors to merge, some to fail, and only the strongest will survive.
It appears likely that the Republican controlled House and the Democrat controlled Senate will battle over the Federal Communications Commission’s Net Neutrality order. It sounds entertaining, but we shouldn’t expect that it will benefit us.
Android is undoubtedly one of the coolest mobile operating systems coded in recent years. But it isn't iOS, and the Xoom, for all its tricked-out and superior specs, isn't an iPad. Simply put, the Android-powered Xoom lacks the comforts of Apple's "walled garden" ecosystem.
So I’m sitting minding my business today when the following note is hand delivered to my wife with a cup of chocolates: Dear Rob, I heard that Sandy B broke your heart and wanted to let you know that I’m here for you. Oh, and I have a cousin from Llana Texas I’d like to introduce you to soon - I think you two will really hit it off!
A lot of us here are suddenly asking if Microsoft can save Nokia. Back in 2005 Palm was clearly in trouble, their smartphone sales weren’t going anyplace and their plan to break the company into two parts - one software and the other hardware - had failed badly.
A few days ago I analyzed the bar for what we now know as the HP TouchPad, which was one of the three products HP announced today.
In a few days HP will launch its tablet competitor against the iPad. The Motorola Xoom, which was expected to be the first real iPad contender, isn’t having a good day with a price about $300 higher than the market will likely accept.
No one can dispute the fact that Nvidia spent an immense amount of time and money developing a viable 3D ecosystem. However, the rapidly evolving standard has yet to be adopted by the majority of mainstream or core gamers.
Yes, Microsoft may have purchased the KinectHalo.com domain, but I can tell you right now I will never, ever play a Kinect-based version of the game - if there is one.
In President Obama's State of the Union Speech last month he spoke of "our Sputnik moment" referring to President Kennedy's vision that we would reach the moon by the end of the 60's.
It was a wonderful decade to dream and his government was referred to as the Camelot of its time.
What ever happened to the good old days when celebrities would sip a Coke on screen for millions of dollars in endorsement money? I had no problems watching Britney Spears dance for Pepsi or Derek Jeter apply deodorant and shave with a particular razor.
At Intel’s global sales meeting this week Will.i.am, who clearly gets points for creative naming, was confirmed as the Director of Creative Innovation.
As Steve Jobs and Apple prepare to separate for possibly last time, an analogous event come to mind: when Walt Disney left his company - catastrophically.
The hackery in Hollywood is reaching critical levels. This time they’re remaking Total Recall with Colin Farrell.
One of the questions a lot of people are asking this week is whether or not they should buy a Verizon iPhone.
These days everyone seems to think improved technology means progress. So will giving netbooks to students and teachers in Detroit improve education for students in one of the worst school districts in the country?
I’m at CES this week and this is a demo show. The best events are those where the technology, not the executives, take center stage and the audience is in awe of what they are seeing.
Over the last several weeks I’ve been briefed on what most of the PC manufacturers are bringing to the Consumer Electronics show and a surprising amount of laptops are based on AMD Fusion.
I’m on my second Windows 7 Phone, not because I had a huge problem with the first one, but only because the new one has a real keyboard and I’m still not a fan of phones that use screen keyboards.
