The fantastic Kevin Butler is back and this time around he’s selling Sony’s upcoming Playstation Move. To paraphrase Michael Cole (who still sucks), these commercials are “Vintage Butler!”. Check ’em out and let me know what you think (please). Sep 9, 2010RPadTV
A year ago, I was all about physical keyboards on mobile phones. While the virtual keyboard on my iPhone 3GS was somewhat acceptable, I greatly preferred the speed and accuracy of my BlackBerry 8900. Virtual keyboards on Android have improved a lot in the last year, but they still aren't great. Opting for a virtual keyboard over a "real" one seemed crazy to me. Then something happened that totally changed my preference -- I discovered Swype.
T-Mobile has officially announced the G2 by HTC, the company’s first HSPA+ phone. The product page lists numerous features and specs. However, pricing and availability have not yet been revealed. As a T-Mobile customer, I’m disappointed in the G2. I love that it supports T-Mo’s zippy HSPA+ network and that it uses a Scorpion processor, […]
The Motorola Droid was the first Google Android phone to make a big splash in America. Its follow-up — aptly named the Droid 2 — is a worthy successor. While it has an improved keyboard and faster processor, Android hardware has come a long way in the last year. It’s a compelling choice for consumers […]
In the past couple of Coffee Talk columns, I referred to Floyd Mayweather, Jr.’s racist (and homophobic) rant against Manny Pacquiao. In addition to accusing Pacquiao of taking performance enhancing drugs, Mayweather railed on the Filipino boxer for eating dogs, eating cats, being yellow, being a midget, and being a “faggot”. Mayweather eloquently claimed that […]
In another bit of news that happened while I was parading around Asia, Pocket Lint discovered that Android 3.5 is codenamed “honeycomb”. We’ve discussed these dessert codenames in the past, but to review Google has dropped: Alpha Beta Cupcake Donut Eclair FroYo (Frozen Yogurt) Gingerbread Honeycomb Let’s keep playing the game and guess what future […]
Instant Karma’s Google’s gonna get you. Gonna look you right in the face. John Lennon lyrics aside, Google has introduced a pretty slick feature designed to make search faster and more efficient: Google Instant. Search results on Google.com now appear instantly and adjust as you type. It’s pretty impressive tech (from my five minutes of […]
According to Gamasutra, Namco Bandai has officially confirmed the (much rumored) departure of Keita Takahashi. Best known as the creative force behind Katamari Damacy and Noby Noby Boy, Takahashi has a reputation for making refreshingly unique and original games. His departure isn’t too surprising. He’s currently working on designing parks for children and seems more […]
While I was in Asia, Sony announced that PlayStation Plus customers are eligible for a discount on the PlayStation Protection Plan. The deal adds a bit of value to PlayStation Plus, but I was wondering how many of you care about console warranties. Certainly console buyers -- especially new ones that were burned by the Xbox 360's red ring of death -- are more cautious these days, but does that translate into plopping down cash on something like the PlayStation Protection Plan or a Best Buy warranty?
Some of you have started doing this already through Coffee Talk, but I wanted to keep it going. It would be cool/fun if we followed each other on iTunes Ping. If you’re interested, please leave your Ping name in the comments section. As for me, I’m “Raymond Padilla”. I actually buy more music from Amazon […]
