It's like someone wrote this episode of Futurama with a gun to their head, being forced to involve all the tertiary characters of the show in one giant explosion of Zoidberg hate. Which is my way of saying that this is one hell of a good episode.
Orolog is a newly established Swiss-made watch company, a collaborative effort between Jaime Hayon and Ian Lowe.
It appears that the latest must-have feature on luxury watches isn't dozens of tectonic plates; dinosaur bone fragments or the kitchen sink—it's the ability to stop the time. Imagine harried Russian oligarchs allowing their mistresses a few minutes of untimed sexytime.
Fingerboarding may sound like a form of thumb torture, but it's actually using your middle and index digits to do some micro-shredding. And this here is just about as good as it gets.
Usually we don't bother with stupid-high-end gadget editions, because they're retardedly expensive and usually garish and ugly to boot—but the recently rumored Leica M7 Hermes edition is absolutely gorgeous and only slightly sillier-priced than the plain-jane M7 anyway.
If the rumors swirling this weekend are to be believed, the Leica M7 Hermes—a limited edition film camera with a run of only 100 units—will arrive on Monday for a lofty $14,000.
I want to live here. Spacious, sunny apartment, hard wood floors, glass and steel. Except that this is not an apartment. It's not even a building. It's the strangest yacht I've seen, as these pretty shots show:
If you've got an HTC Hermes, TyTN or Cingular 8525, today's your lucky day. The guys on the XDA Dev Forums have hacked together a bunch of Windows Mobile 6 code together to make a version that works on your phone. It's very unofficial, to be sure, and is missing stuff like voice calling, PTT, Live! Mobile, Smart…
We've covered the TyTN before (pretty extensively), so this is more of a reminder that there is an option besides the Sprint PPC-6700/Verizon XV6700/Cingular 8125/T-Mobile MDA if you want a smartphone with a keyboard.
The latest HTC phone with a slide-out keyboard is the HTC Herald, the successor to the HTC Hermes. The Herald is thinner, at 18mm versus the Hermes' 22mm, but vomits a camera and some processor power to do so. Luckily for us, everything else is the same. The phone still has a 2-megapixel camera, QVGA touch-screen,…
Over the weekend some pictures of Cingular's HTC Hermes knockoff hit the web over at the Brighthand.com forums. This is supposedly an upgrade from the 8125, but unfortunately it has had the front-facing camera removed, therefore making video conferencing null and void. We'll keep you posted as more info about this…
The Dopod 838 Pro is pretty much the same as the HTC Hermes/TyTN, but repackaged with a 360-degree jog wheel for navigation inside the Windows Mobile 5.0 interface. Like the TyTN, the 838 Pro has 802.11g WiFi, EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0, quad-band GSM, EDGE, UMTS, and HSDPA.
Chief mob-ologist Dave at Mobility Today got some hands time with the HTC TyTN, the in-house model name for the HTC Hermes.
The hotly anticipated Windows Mobile phone, the HTC Hermes, gets its specs finalized—no more guesstimating. The processor is a speedy 400MHz, and the phone has 128MB of RAM with 128MB of internal memory for storage. Bluetooth, WiFi, 2.0 megapixel camera and QWERTY keypad are still there.
Two phone updates from HTC, via MSMobiles, today. The one above is an HTC Hermes smartphone. You can see it's got a QWERTY keyboard, and that's a 2.1 Megapixel camera with flash in the upper corner. It's also carrying a video camera, 802.11 b/g WiFi, Bluetooth and a 320 x 240 QVGA screen. Now for the flurry of…
