First Look: FREETALK Wireless USB Headset for Skype

by Jonathan Jensen 11th February 2010

A habit of mine when I’m on the phone is to wander around the house. For some reason I prefer to walk and talk rather than sit in a chair! However with a regular PC headset I’m tethered to the PC and can’t move which is a source of frustration. So when I saw the FREETALK Wireless […]

Video: N900 running Android [Deep Joy]

by Ben Smith 23rd January 2010

YouTube user ‘bdogg64‘ Brandon Roberts has posted this first (as far as  I know) footage of an N900 being hacked to dual boot Maemo and Android.  The Android install is far from usable yet, but it works… Perhaps I will – one day – be able to satisfy my love for Android and my desire […]
