  • Spam o’ the morning to you!

    Spam o’ the morning to you!

    We just got this email from, of all places, Brandoo Co., Ltd., a company that seems to be parasitically suckling off of the good will associated to Brando. However, unlike Brando, their devices are clearly garbage OEM junk. In fact, there’s not a humping dog USB dongle to be found on their site. However, what this [...]

    Will Nintendo release two more Wii MotionPlus compatible games this year?

Other than Wii Sports Resort, Nintendo hasn’t really said too much about first party MotionPlus titles coming out this year. Gamememo hints that Cosmic Walker and Spam Smasher could be the two rumored titles, [...]

  • Palm Pre User Guide: the highlights, so far

    Palm Pre User Guide: the highlights, so far

    When word that Sprint Gurus had gotten hold of the Palm Pre User Guide came across our desks yesterday, we couldn't wait to get our eyes all over it... and then we saw that it was almost as long as Infinite Jest. Okay, we kid, it's not as bad as all that -- just 344 pages of heretofore unseen glorious tidbits. So here's what we've culled thus far: first, the Pre's main musical squeeze, Amazon MP3, will queue your music downloads when on the 3G network for later download when the device is on a WiFi network -- which is sure to cause annoyance and dismay the whole world over (and by "world" we mean the Pre's world, which is US only). There is however, plenty of good news: the Pre will, in fact have IMAP IDLE (AKA Push) Gmail capabilities, meaning that you'll get your spam nearly the moment it hits Gmail's servers. Finally, the previously spied Reminder field in the Pre's Contacts has been found out, and it's a really awesome feature allowing you to make a note and attach it to a particular contact, so that the next time you are in contact with that person, the reminder will pop up and... remind you. For anyone suffering mild memory loss (like us) little touches like this are sure to make the Pre a more attractive proposition. Hit the read link for the full manual, and let us know what you find. Warning: the user's manual is a PDF, and has an insanely huge Sprint Gurus watermark across every blasted page.
