iPhone Helps Reduce Sedatives?

Apparently, a doctor has been using his iPhone to help relax kids before they enter surgery.
When I was in the hospital for surgery, I just had the Super Nintendo, playing Mario until my dull mind was bored of it, which was only like 5 minutes.
With Micorosoft pushing their new xbox 360, the Xbox 360 Panacea, which will feature full length G-rated movies/tv shows and E-rated games, I don't think the iPhone stands a chance. But hey, that's just my opinion, what do you think?

Firefox 3 Beta 5 MorPHeD!!!!!!!!!

Well, this is one of the most unusual discoveries I have made in the past few weeks. After finishing the installation of Firefox 3 Beta 5 on my XP SP2 Dell machine, I launched the beta and this is what I get. 3 BACK BUTTONS?!?!?! I found it quite hilarious at first and still do. I have yet to test whether it is currently only able to provide this unique feature on that computer. I thought it was the whole line of Beta versions from Mozilla's site, but when I installed it on my Vista SP1 edition Acer computer, it was normal, with only one back button. I will be testing the same .exe beta file later tonight on an Acer laptop and my Vista SP1 machine. Feel free to use the picture on any web story, etc. 
I will be updating my findings either later tonight or tomorrow sometime whenever I'm in the mood.

Best Buy no longer welcoming the 80GB PS3

Best Buy will no longer be selling the 80GB PS3 due to the high interest and popularity of the new, cheaper 40GB, non-backwards-compatible model. Since the release of the 40GB model, PS3's having been flying off store shelves. That is why Best Buy is getting rid of the 80GB model. Why waste shelf space for an unpopular machine when you can make room for, lets say, the newly announced white 40GB model?

The Macbook Air Reviews are in...And the Verdict Is?

Well, the only specs and quality of this laptop that we've been able to get are the people who went to MacWorld 2008. But now, we have the reviews of 3 well-known journalists. These reviews come from USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, and Newsweek.

WSJ: Walt Mossberg from the Wall Street Journal was surprised at how the machine felt in hand, saying words could not describe. He also said the keyboard and screen were "a pleasure to use." He also noted how speedy it was. His battery tests gave him 3 hrs and 24 minutes having WIFI turned on and music playing non-stop.

Newsweek: Steven Levy of Newsweek wrote in a third of his review how thin it is. He then compared it to a circumcision. He noted that to ensure an easy connection, you must turn Firewall setting to it's lowest, making the machine even more prone to attacks.

USA Today: Ed Baig of USA Today reviewed the Macbook Air as a machine not meant to be alone, saying that there are tons of features missing and that to only purchase this if you travel a lot with your laptop. He explained Intel's new Core 2 Duo that Intel re-made just for the Macbook Air, going on to say that it is definately the slowest Intel Core 2 Duo chips on the Mac line-up (OUCH!). Surfing the Web, he got 3 hrs and 40 minutes. When watching a movie, 2 hrs and 40 minute ( Zune lasts longer than that).

(700MHz Spectrum) Let the Auctioning Begin!

Well, it's time for what we've all been waiting for. the 700MHz spectrum bidding will commence tomorrow. The top players in in this auction are no other than Google and Verizon themselves. Rumors of Google walking away from the auction empty-handed have been spreading like smallpox due to it pretty much already getting those open-access provisions it wanted.
My hope is that Google wins the auction, takes the spectrum and starts a wireless service, using advertisements as a paying method for consumers so consumers don't have to spend a pretty penny on cellular service ever. Everyone's happy! If you don't want those silly little ads on your phone when you turn it on, you can always pay using a different carrier (2-yr contract or pre-paid service).

Vista Takes on the Consumer Market once Again

In another attempt at glory, Vista Service Pack 1 is rumored to be released on February 15th. Vista SP1 has already been through it's release Candidate Cycle. So, if you've waited to purchase a new PC with Vista on it because you felt that Microsoft needed to make some changes, then the time is coming. So get ready to pull out those wallets and cash in because Vista is coming to town once again.
But, for those who've already gave up the dough for either a new PC or the OS, Vista SP1 will be released as an update, so all of you faithful Vista users will get all of the good stuff as well as the new adopters of the OS.

Still Dreading Higher Decibels in your Earbuds?

If you think that Apple's earbuds pump out the noise, wait until you get a load of these. These earbuds are said to be 500 times the size of the standard earbuds that ship with the iPod models. Perhaps you are looking for a new pair of stylish speakers for your desktop computer? Anyway, these are a pair of earbuds that if they ever do have the chance to hit the consumer market at an affordable price, you'll want to pick a pair of these up the second you see them.
