This commercial played Monday before a special screening of Star Wars for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Sure, you use an 18k gold stylus to play with your fancy DS Lite, and you might have a 24k iPod, but did you ever stop to think that your cell phone charms aren't telling the world you have too much money?
Have no fear because Louis Vuitton is here to save the day. For only $240, you can buy a pair of dice for your cell phone. Oh wait, officially they're called "dangling resin cubes." They have Swarovski crystals and tiny golden-brass LV logos.
Now that I think about it, this could be a good … Read more
Update: Mere hours after we posted this blog entry, we got the news that Cingular/AT&T has pulled down the LG CU500V from its site. So either someone jumped the gun and listed it early, or the site is experiencing some technical difficulties. Plus, it looks like the Nokia N75 is suffering from the same launch fake-out. What's up, AT&T? The following is the original blog entry prior to the take down:
Well, I'll be darned, look who finally showed up on Cingular/AT&T's doorstep: the Nokia N75. After months and months (and months) of waiting, the music-centric, 3G-loving N75 appeared on the carrier's Web site today and with very little fanfare might we add. This is just a bit curious seeing as how much hype and interest the smart phone got prelaunch, and also a bit peculiar since it seems the N75's product page is now gone from the Cingular Web site. We know it wasn't just wishful thinking on our part, because we … Read more
As Spider-Man fans eagerly await the next movie (please don't make Venom lame), we hear Sony Ericsson will sling out some Spidey-enhanced handsets soon.
The K800i, the K750i, K550i, and the K610i will be getting new suits. And don't worry about scratching your phone when you're web-slinging because these special-edition phones come with a carrying case and a wrist strap. Reportedly, there will also be exclusive Spider-Man wallpapers and screensavers preloaded on the phones.
No word on when these are expected to be available, but it shouldn't be too far as the movie's only a … Read more
There's been much ado about the possibility of a Microsoft Zune cell phone lately, and Crave has joined the chorus of musings with several posts of our own. While a Microsoft exec said last year that such a device is a possibility, CEO Steve Ballmer wasn't so optimistic when he was asked that very question last week. "It's not a concept you'll ever get from us," Ballmer said while speaking at the University of Washington. "We're in the Windows Mobile business." While such comments obviously are open to interpretation, Ballmer went … Read more
Contrary to popular belief, Crave doesn't hate every attempt to adorn gadgets and their accessories. It's true that the fashion gremlins have been hard at work spreading their atrocious taste to headsets, for example, but every once in awhile they miss one--and the result is something as beautifully designed as Jabra's JX10 Bluetooth line.
Thankfully, the company exercised sufficient self-restraint with its luxury versions, which Luxurylaunches says come in 24k gold plate and stainless steel. Of course, once we learned that the headset was the work of a former Bang & Olufsen designer, it all made sense.… Read more
So, what applications would you like to see on the iPhone or Apple TV?
Apple will develop new software applications and features for the products over time, and make those available for free, it said Tuesday during its earnings call. It's all related to some complicated accounting mumbo-jumbo that annoyed MacBook users back in January and February when they had to pay $1.99 to unlock a faster Wi-Fi chip they didn't even know they had.
By telling people the new stuff is coming up front--and by waiting to recognize a portion of the revenue from each sale--Apple … Read more
When Pantech released the Pantech C300 last year, we were amazed at its diminutive size. Weighing 2.5 ounces and measuring 2.72 inches by 1.69 inches by 0.76 inch, the C300 is touted by Pantech as the world's smallest camera flip phone. Then Pantech released the C3, which is the C300 with changeable faceplate covers. Now Pantech has come up with the C3b, essentially the same thing, but with Bluetooth functionality. Word is it'll go to AT&T soon, though pricing isn't available at this time.
Qantas is getting on board as is Air France. So it was only a matter of time before a U.S. airline floated the idea of using cell phones in-flight. As CNET News.com reports, Jet Blue CEO David Neeleman said texting could have a future in the skies. Neeleman also said listening to voice mail could be allowed, as long as ringtones and message alerts are silenced. On the other hand, voice calls would still be prohibited given the FCC's continued ban on using cell phones while in the air. At least you'll be able to enjoy … Read more
