    According to JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz Apple's competitors have turned off some ovens in their bakeries after "an early dose of reality."

    Flagiship tablet devices such as Motorola's Zoom, Research In Motion's BlackBerry Playbook, and Samsung's Galaxy Tab have had a weak showing so far. As a result the companies have dipped their build plans by 10% due to the lack of sales. This doesn't mean ...

    Well that was quick. Less Eight hours after Apple issued a security update to identify and remove the MAC Defender malware, a new variation is in the wild that can slip past Apple's updated defenses.

    Apparently Asus wasn't the only one thinking of ways to combine smartphones and tablets in a Voltron-esque fashion. Computer maker ECS, hours after Asus debuted the Padfone, demoed a non-functional iPhone like Padfone prototype.

    The ECS offering is essentially a 9.7" iPhone tablet dock. Once the iPhone is inserted into the device, it outputs the iPhones video via HMDI to the larger tablet display. ...

    It started last November with a single Cobra pilot. He figured out how to load digital maps onto the iPad and word spread. Quickly.

    Before using the iPad identifying landmarks from the air was an exercise in patience. Paper charts and grids filled the tiny cockpits, and required additional training to decipher. Being able to click through a digital interface, and search for compounds of landmarks ...

    Intel and announcements at the Computex trade show were similar to a two-year-old learning their first words. You couldn't get them to shut up.

    Intel's proposed "Ultrabooks" would combine the performance capabilities of a laptop with "tablet-like features" in a "thin, light, and elegant design" according to Executive VP Sean Maloney. Intel is shooting to have these Ultrabooks be less than 20mm thick and cost less than ...

    Of all the timeless, historic, and important landmarks that dot New York city, Apple's 5th Avenue store is New York's top photo attraction according to researcher Eric Frischer.

    I guess people would rather take pictures than throw stones through Apple's iconic glass house.

    Fischer created the above image by mapping the geo-tagged information from millions of photos uploaded to Flickr. He used ...

    Honing his inner Steve Jobs, Asus chairman Jonney Shih waited until last minute of their press conference at Computex 2011 to unveil the companies next big thing. Or things. Or two things in one, the Padfone.

    The Padfone is Asus' vision of the unholy marriage between a smartphone and a tablet device. The smartphone docks, or connects, or assimilates into the tablet body, becoming the heart of the new device. It's very similar ...

    Yesterday while I was golfing, naturally I used my iPhone to check the weather and search for tips on how to improve the horrific snap hook I developed overnight. During my search, I noticed Google's mobile search site looked different, complete with large icons for the traditional search options (pictured above).

    The updated mobile search site is only available if you complete a google ...

    I hate the check engine light located just to the right of my speedometer. It comes on. It goes off. I've decided it has a mind of its own. Nothing irritates me more than having that thing come on, then taking my car in for a diagnosis, only to find out I paid $70 to be told nothing was actually wrong and they reset my diagnostic system.

    I'm almost convinced I need to purchase the GL1 ...
