So much news passes before our collective eyes every day that we couldn't possibly cover it all. Mostly because much of it isn't worth covering! But here are a some borderline tidbits we passed on, just in case.
To celebrate the release of the new Dell Streak tablet, a genius Dell sales manager in Round Rock, Texas wanted to boost employee spirit and make it an event to remember. Too bad his ridiculous plan got him and another employee arrested.
Tablets! Tablets tablets tablets. They're the hot ticket at this year's CES. Just about everyone's got one (not that everyone should). We've parsed, prodded, and played with the main contenders. And this one's best. Well, these ones.
The Dell Streak tablet is nice and everything, but what it really needs is a...SNES CONTROLLER. Thankfully modder "0TheRain0" hacked the Streak's PDMI port with a Teensy USB Microcontroller board, so it just assumes the SNES is a USB keyboard.
We had heard that the 5" Streak wouldn't be Dell's largest play in the tablet game, and now Michael Dell has confirmed that they're working on a 7" Android tablet, too. Hopefully one with a recent Android build, this time.
At 5-inches, the Streak is a lot more portable than the iPad—but still not quite as pocket-friendly (lab coat-friendly?) as the iPhone. Nonetheless, that's where Dell wants to place its tablets, ramming it with a healthcare software app.
The pricing's no different from the report Dell originally disowned, but now we also know, officially, that you can buy a Dell Streak August 13th. It's going to cost you $300, though, even with a two-year contract.
