Incipio’s iPhone 4 Game Boy Case Banned

Written on January 13, 2011 by Chris Martin

Comments Off

It's every gaming and Apple fan's fantasy. Unfortunately, the law likes to ruin everyone's dreams.

It seems we have to wait for the next big iPhone 4 case to come up, as this Game-Boy themed iPhone case concoted by Incipio won’t be coming out for consumers due to copyright violations (aren’t Nintendo and iPhone on the same team? oh wait, there’s the Incipio factor, damn). It certainly tickled our iPhone case taste buds when Inicipio showed it off over at the CES 2011 and it couldv’e been a nice follow up for the company after the iPod Nano watch bands. But unfortunately, it seems we’ll be only seeing pictures of the iPhone 4 Game-Boy case. So enjoy it while it lasts, because we’ll never get one (unless someone from China takes on the challenge of copying it.)

Dick Costolo sincerely hopes that Twitter will become a successful independent company.

More over, Costolo explained its very simple business plan: While Twitter is a technology company, its model is advertising-based. The key to its plan is the way ads are taken out to the market as an advertising content. Another is to enable users to embed Tweets in a way that they can directly interact on other sites. This includes replying, retweeting, following the sender, and many more.

Will 2011 be the year the Twitter stands on its own? Share your insights by dropping your comment.

CES 2011 featured one of the coolest exhibits that tech and gadget enthusiasts have ever seen: The World of BlackBerry. Much of the buzz roam around BlackBerry’s newest tablet, the PlayBook. With an estimated 75 different tablets at CES 2011, what makes BlackBerry PlayBook stand out? Money in marketing, service and retail outlets.

Frankly, the BlackBerry PlayBook is a very sexy device because of its size and gaming, video conferencing and multimedia capabilities. The manufacturer’s target is the business market that already have a foothold on their smartphones. More over, the BlackBerry PlayBook is a “flash-loving” device. And this term should give Apple’s iPad some concern.

And with all that, BlackBerry has a heavy retail and service network that is something worth to consider.

Sony Welcomes AMD Fusion in VAIO Y Series; S Series Stays Intel Core

Written on January 06, 2011 by Chris Martin

1 person

Looks like Intel is in deep trouble now that Sony has welcomed its chief competitor, AMD, into its line of mobile VAIOs.

We got AMD’s new Fusion APUs on one side, then Intel’s Sandybridge CPU on the other here at the CES 2011. While both try to strike a chord to the crowd with their flashy processors in the CES, it seems Sony couldn’t care less as it welcomes both into the fray of their new line of laptops. For the past years, Sony has been utilizing the power of Intel processors in their mobile computers. But recently, they unveiled that they’re using AMDs in some of their products now. Sony’s new VAIO YB series has been refreshed with AMD’s Brazos E350 and from what we’ve heard, the electronics giant admits that it’s better than Intel’s Pentium processors.

The Y series gives amazing graphics at the same time long battery life. It will be available with 320GB or 500GB hard drives along with a 4GB RAM and will run with Windows Home Premium. Intel needs not to worry though as Sony’s powerful, ultraportable VAIO S series is buffed with their own Core i3.

The Sony VAIO YA Series, which is backed by Core i5 processors, will still be available. But until when, only time can tell.

While people are busy with CES 2011, there is a video that will probably call the attention of many consumers soon; a video which features iPhone 5 case.

While everyone is quite busy with CES 2011 revelations, Apple stays quiet in the corner. Though its absence at CES 2011 is quite disappointing they would not allow it to be left behind. Are we sensing iPhone 5 in the air?

Boy Genius reports a YouTube video from smartphone parts firm Global Direct Parts claiming to have a glimpse of the iPhone 4 and another unreleased iPhone model. This suggests either a CDMA iPhone 4 rumored release as the famous iPhone 5. However, the presence of a SIM card slot is quite questionable. This flawed the legitimacy of the video but we can never really can tell.

The highlights of the video includes similarities and differences from the current iPhone 4. See the video after the jump.
