Living with the Android

Dave Zatz: After several weeks of surfing with living with the Android, I’m comfortable declaring any build 1.5 or higher as a suitably modern, powerful mobile OS that will meet the needs of most.

One year with my Eee PC

Mari Silbey: It was right about this time last year that I bought my Asus Eee 1000HA. It was my first netbook, and I fell in love with the price and portability. Now here it is a year later, and I have a more nuanced perspective on my little black book.

The Boxes of the Year

Dave Zatz: With the last holiday shopping weekend of 2009 upon us, it’s probably time to list my favorite home entertainment boxes of the year. This list is by no means exhaustive, these are just some of my faves – top picks, suitable for mainstream audiences and geeks alike.

Apple acquires music streaming service Lala

Dave Zatz: Regular readers may recall that I’ve been pining for a subscription-based iTunes music service. And, perhaps, Lala is the missing link to make it happen.
