Your vision of a car of the future may include flight, but these pictures of hydrogen fuel cell cars show that they look as mundane as anything on the road. The Honda FCX stands out, but only in the way the Toyota Prius stood out when it was first introduced. And many of these cars are operating among us, driving in traffic and down the same roads we drive every day. Automakers have put their fuel cell cars in real-world testing, which means they can work like gasoline cars.

Orlando isn't all fun and games, believe me! Unless, of course, you consider walking around a convention center looking for the best and coolest new mobile devices and accessories "fun and games!" Heck, when you out it that way, I guess it wasn't so bad after all. All the other video coverage is here, but I spent some time looking at devices and services that caught my eye! Take a look.
I don't know about you, but sometimes I carry way too much stuff in my pockets. On any given day I'll have a cell phone, an iPod, a memory stick, a pen, my wallet, a pack of gum, and some keys, all taking up space in my pants.
I suppose I could just simplify, or carry a bag around, but the folks at ThinkGeek have another idea. They want us gadget lovers to think about how Han Solo would handle this problem. I reckon he would strap on the Gadget Hip Holster because "whether you're making … Read more
If you've already bought the Serenade Clock Radio and you long to hear the mournful howl of the Mexican wolf when your phone rings, then you're in luck as the Center for Biological Diversity is offering free ringtones of endangered species. The goal is to raise awareness of the plight of these animals, and to get more people involved with protecting them.
After giving your name and e-mail, you get to choose which ringtone you want. The ringtones themselves are the sounds of these endangered animals - it ranges from the mighty roar of the polar bear to … Read more
If the thought of self-important loudmouths using their cell phones at 35,000 feet sends shivers down your spine, you can rest easy, at least for now. As CNET's News.com reports, the Federal Communications Commission today ended a two-year investigation into a ban on in-flight cell phone use that dates back to 1991. The agency said it hadn't received enough technical information to prove that using cell phones and other gadgets while aloft doesn't interfere with an aircraft's navigation and communication systems. The FCC could revisit the issue but didn't say when it might … Read more
Don't think that T-Mobile or Verizon Wireless are taking a rest after the end of the CTIA show last week. A quick look at their Web sites today shows that both carriers have added new phones to their lineups. Though it's not a surprise T-Mobile stepped in to formerly offer the Motorola Krzr K1. The GSM version of the Krzr landed at Cingular/AT&T last month, while Sprint and Verizon introduced the CDMA Krzr K1m last year. T-Mobile's K1 is silver (Cingular opted for blue) but the feature set is standard including Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel … Read more
CTIA has finally wrapped up, and while we have our own picks of what was the cream of the crop, CTIA has also announced the winners of its Emerging Technology awards. Our very own Kent German and Bonnie Cha were two of the judges selecting the winners, which were chosen based on innovation, functionality, wow factor, importance of technology, and ease of use and implementation. The Best of Show award went to Alltel's Celltop technology, which allows customers greater flexibility in managing and organizing content on their cell phones (You can read more about it our review of the … Read more
Now Cingular has confirmed the release date will be June 11. A customer service manager at Cingular (we called 800-947-5096 and were transferred to sales) gave us that date late Thursday, but, alas, said he didn't have any additional information beyond that.
The last day of CTIA is always quiet as show attendees hurry to the airport and the convention center begins the changeover to whatever show comes next. Yet, that didn't stop our editors from nosing around for the last bits of news.
We checked out Kyocera's Bluetooth Music Gateway, CallWave's new Vtxt application and we caught news of the Nokia 5700 Xpress Music, the update to the admirable Nokia 5300. Bonnie Cha posted a slide show for the new Motorola phones, and I gathered several shots of the action on the show floor.
