There's no doubt about it. Intel is arming up to wage some battles with ARM over market share in mobile devices. We've been seeing ARM this and ARM that for some time, but Intel is ready to fight back a bit, at least with some of the reference designs and concepts it is...
For those who correctly think that Amazon's Kindle Fire is just part of a bigger strategy instead of those who narrowly think it's all about hardware in the trumped up for the headlines Kindle Fire/iPad 2 fight, this might be some confirming news. Amazon has released...
Shutting the barn door after the horse has left the barn might be the best way to describe this. Maybe not. Regardless, you can certainly say that this move by RIM doesn't exactly jive with that metaphor about no wine being released before its time.
Chuong Nguyen caught up with Andy Lusky of AMD at CES 2012 and got a quick look at something Ultra. Well, that's Ultra as in Ultrathin not Ultrabook.
Yesterday Kevin posted about the OnLive Desktop App and service that will allow iPad users to have a virtual Windows 7 desktop on their Tablet.
This was an historic year at CES 2012 if for no other reason that it was the announced last keynote by Microsoft. Announced by both Microsoft and CES, that move has caused much consternation and gnashing of teeth about Microsoft (they want to move on, they don't have th...
The Asus Eee Transformer Prime is one of those devices that have turned heads, forced some to save up pennies, and well, is just eagerly awaited by many. It has been drooled over and looked at as the possible Tablet that might give Apple a run for its money.
Well, let's just say we more than saw this coming. Fusion Garage of the Crunchpad/Joo Joo Tablet/Grid 10 Tablet has certainly had one of the most tumultuous journeys one can imagine trying to compete in the Great Tablet race.
Stall surfing. If you follow me, the resident GBM Stall Surfing guru, you'll know that this is the "marketing reason that shall not be mentioned" for Tablets.
The bloggers are ready. The gadget hawkers are ready. Everyone is primed to push forward what we're going to be buying this year and especially next holiday season.
Social sharing has become a bigger thing than I ever imagined it would. Folks love to 'tweet,' 'Facebook,' 'check-in,' and share their experiences in a myriad of ways across the web using mobile devices.
As always this isn't a list of gadgets, geegaws, accessories, or Apps. This wish list is about things I'd like to see happen in mobile tech in general.
What was once a field of dreams two years ago is now littered with casualties. Hopes and hype have been dashed. Strategies have been changed and are changing again.
One of the prices of success is that you have to keep investing in order to be successful. One of the downfalls is that if you don't, you risk the gains you've made.
Skitch is a popular screen capture an annotation utility that I use all the time on my Mac. I like it quite a bit. Evernote recently bought Skitch and it looks like that acquisition is going to pay off for users of Skitch and Evernote in the long run. Now Evernote ha...
Amazon has rolled out an update to its Kindle App for iOS devices and it offers some new functionality that most likely will be welcomed by users of the iOS platform.
Making predictions for what is to come in the New Year in this topsy-turvey world is both an easy chore and a difficult exercise.
I've checked out quite a few different styli to be used with an iPad. I know it is verboten to think of using a stylus on that Tablet, but hey, I do take a lot of notes in rehearsal and quite frankly I don't like to finger paint when I do so.
NBC has announced that it will stream the Super Bowl on its website and via Verizon's NFL Mobile App. This will be the first time that the biggest game of the professional football year will be available on Smartphone (assuming you're a Verizon customer) and via the Web...
Amazon is supposedly pushing out an update to the Kindle Fire. I say supposedly because I and a number of other users haven't seen evidence of it yet.
According to a report from Notebook Italia (linked to by Slashgear) Google's Eric Schmidt is promising "in the next six months we plan to market a tablet of the highest quality." He was quoted in an interview with the Italian paper Corrierre della Sea. He's also pr...
It's the end of the year and its time for wrap-ups, predictions and more crystal ball gazing than you can shake a branch of holly at.
The saga of Fusion Garage looks like it may have come to an unfortunate end. According to a report on The Verge, founder Chandra Rathakrishnan has been uncommunicative for a period of time, customers can't get any responses from a dead website, and the US PR firm repres...
Passion about any subject is a good thing. Stating a passionate opinion is a good thing. Stating a strong passionate opinion is a good and often a bold thing.
Watching the GBM Team members go crazy with their new Verizon Galaxy Nexus devices and react to it on Yammer is something I wish we could broadcast live here on the pages of GBM.
Yesterday Google released an update to its iOS GMail App that brought new features like vacation responders, different signatures for mobile emails and scribbling.
Remember the complaints when the iPad was first released that it was only a consumption device? They were legion. Then the App developers got involved and low and behold we've seen quite a few folks who have enjoyed creating on an iPad or an iPad 2.
Yet. For those who think it is because I'm an Apple fan boy, hear me out. It has nothing to do with the fact that I've been an iPhone and iOS user for some time now.
So, did someone throw the wrong switch or am I just a doofus? (Let's confine those comments to the subject of this post and not in a general sense.
Microsoft is certainly pushing ahead with everything Windows 8 and betting the Tablet farm on its strategy there. But it is not ignoring iOS and all of those iPhone and iPad users.
It's getting to be that in order to follow the mobile tech news you need a degree in patent law. Lawsuits are as big a part of what's going on as are specs these days. Seattle based Cequint has filed a suit against Apple alleging patent infringement.
Ah, technology, lobbying, and lawmaking. It's a wicked brew. There's currently a bill brewing in the US House of Representatives (H.R.
Mindjet is a popular name in mindmapping software. Many Tablet PC users considered MindManager a key App not just because of its excellent mind mapping ability but also because you could do your work in Digital Ink.
