Dell Mini 3i officially set for imminent launch in Brazil and China {Engadget}

iTunes 8.2.1 brings Pre's music syncing capability to a halt (updated) {Engadget}

Jul 15th 2009 5:38PM I have an iPhone, an old G4 Mini, have owned Apple products over the years dating back to an Apple ][+, and yeah, I think iTunes for the PC is a bloated and slow, but I use it. Certainly, someone that has built up an iTunes library over the years because they've had an iPod, but now have decided that the Pre is better for them, maybe they don't like ATT or whatnot, but would still like to sync their library. It's not hard to come up with almost endless scenarios as to why someone would want to use iTunes with a Pre. Everyone that doesn't have an iPhone is not an Apple hater. Frankly, brand loyalty is pretty stupid, IMO. All that this company has done for you is sell you a piece of hardware. That's the extent of their relationship with you. You gave them money, they gave you hardware.

Kindle gets its first update, now v1.0.4 {Engadget}

Feb 14th 2008 6:10PM Just updated my Kindle and it went fine. I don't notice much difference, but it seems generally slightly snappier-- especially when web surfing.

Jeff Bezos says Kindle is "outpacing our expectations" {Engadget}

Feb 1st 2008 2:04PM Being the big gadget freak that I am, and someone that has read ebooks for a while on my PDA, I went ahead and shelled out $400 for one of these. Instantly had buyers remorse, but didn't cancel the order. Well, it finally showed up last Monday, and I have to say, it has far exceeded my expectations, and I don't regret at all what I payed for it now. It's small and light and fairly well designed, buying ebooks is ridiculously easy-- click store, click book, click buy (or send sample), and away you go. The book arrives within seconds. An audible subscriber? Well you can listen to your audio books on it too. It also will play .mp3s and can read unprotected books in the mobireader format. If you need to have docs that are in a pdf, txt, doc, or jpg format on it, just email it to your kindle account and amazon will convert them for ten cents. Or you can download mobipocket creator and convert them yourself.

But the "experimental" apps are where it really shines-- free (at the moment) go anywhere web access. "ask kindle nownow", in which you type in a question and you get three answers researched up by real live people and delivered automatically to your Kindle and email in about ten minutes.

Now there are a few annoyances-- the screen is a little dark and the web browser is pretty basic, but, all in all, every time I used it I end up thinking "what a cool gadget" and that its functionality is fantastic. I am very pleased with it and hope Amazon has great success with this.

Poll: How do you want us to cover Leopard? {Engadget}

Oct 25th 2007 2:00PM How about you make a separate section for all of the Leopard coverage? My copy of leopard is winging it's way from the Apple warehouse as we speak, and I'm excited to try it out, but I really hate it when coverage of a new and major product drowns out all of your other stories.
