We are back online today and explain exactly what happened to the show yesterday when it blew up. We discuss Rims demise and the Senate passing a law making it a felony to stream copyright protected material on the interwebs while at the same time day dream about Spotify coming to the US in all of its music streaming glory.Subscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more
I posted a full review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 last week. Today, the tablet finally goes on sale nationwide. On Thursday, I posted a comparison blog and video featuring the Tab 10.1 and the iPad 2.
Sure, that's a lot of coverage, but what do you expect for what some highly astute individuals are calling the iPad 2 of Honeycomb tablets? The Tab 10.1 is the closest any other vendor has come to matching Apple's thin, elegant iPad 2 design.
Also, the device is one of the first to use Samsung's new … Read more
Can the new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 best the iPad 2 in my grueling performance speed tests? Read on to find out. And please check out the full review of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 for more of an all-encompassing view of what it has to offer.
Once again, I take you into the murky bowels of CNET Labs to deliver hard-hitting performance test results for tablets. Well, I guess "hard-hitting" is a relative term. Let's try "light-touching." I guess I'd just like to avoid getting raked over the coals for promising too much, because if I've learned anything from Scotty from "Star Trek," it's to never overpromise. Actually, he was more of an underpromiser, but I shouldn't take my humility too far, lest it come back to take a significant chunk out of my backside. So, we'll go with "moderate-groping." Moderate-groping test results! Yes, that sounds appropriate.… Read more
American Airlines gave Android a sky-high boost earlier this month when it started offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 as an entertainment device for first-class passengers.
American will deploy 6,000 Galaxy Tabs on Boeing 767 flights between New York's JFK airport and Los Angeles, JFK and San Francisco, and Miami and Los Angeles. Passengers also will find the device on 767 aircraft serving South America and Boeing 757 aircraft flying between Boston and Los Angeles.
Besides replacing American's current entertainment system, the Wi-Fi-enabled tablets also will offer passengers Internet access during flights for an additional fee. … Read more
On today's show, "worms from hell" a mile or more underground. We get a look at Windows 8 and we dig it, a lot. Google says a Chinese hacker got into hundreds of Gmail accounts, which China (not surprisingly) denies. Plus, Molly gets a new boyfriend to take to the bunker (which gets grilled cheese sandwiches in addition to its chicken and Gaga), and we get schooled on matters of space shuttle transportation.Subscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more
Just a couple of days ago, J.K. Shin, Samsung's president of mobile communications, said an LTE version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 was in the works for later this year, but it looks like it's going to be sooner rather than later.
Verizon Wireless announced today that it will start taking preorders for the 4G Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 on June 8. The carrier will offer a 16GB version for $529.99 and a 32GB for $629.99 but did not specify when the tablets would ship or be available in stores.
The Honeycomb-based … Read more
Hackers are targeting everything from defense contractors (for obvious reasons) to PBS (for slightly less obvious reasons related to their journalistic integrity), and frankly, we were sad to hear that Tupac actually isn't alive somewhere in New Zealand. Also, my report from Area 51, what Apple will deliver at WWDC, and the best Lady Gaga/KFC chicken Photoshop we've ever seen. --MollySubscribe: iTunes (MP3) | iTunes (320x180) | iTunes (640x360) | RSS (MP3) | RSS (320x180) | RSS (640x360)… Read more
Samsung's new 10.1-inch Galaxy Tab tablet is slated to reach consumers in June, with Best Buy revealed as one of the retailers, but Samsung is also busy prepping a 4G edition due to hit the market later this year.
Best Buy's product page touting the Galaxy Tab says only that it's "coming soon," however, comments made recently by J.K. Shin, president of Samsung's mobile communications division, confirmed that the new 10.1-inch tablet and its smaller 8.9-inch cousin will reach consumers in June.
Samsung will officially launch the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 on June 17. A couple of weeks back we were one of the lucky 5,000 to receive the Google I/O version of the tablet and put it through its paces.
The version to be released next week will sport a slight design change, eschewing the bathroom wallpaper-looking backside, replacing it with a more uniform chassis, like the iPad 2.
In fact, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 bears more than a passing resemblance to the iPad 2 with a profile that's just as thin and an even … Read more
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet will come out of the box with the latest version of Android Honeycomb 3.1.
A Wi-Fi-only edition of Galaxy Tab 10.1 is due to hit the consumer market on June 8. The 16GB version is expected to cost $499, while the 32GB version will run $599.
As the first upgrade to Honeycomb, Android 3.1 offers several fixes and well as improvements to the browser, Gmail, and other features. Nvidia's outspoken CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, who has criticized earlier versions of Android--even pointing to certain shortcomings in Honeycomb 3.0--has … Read more
