Google's biggest day of the year is here: Google I/O! And along with fancy developer seminars with enticing names like "open-source technologies from the Hadoop ecosystem as part of your Cloud toolkit," we're also going to get some Fun Announcements. Here's what we're expecting, what we're hoping for, and what'll have…
With free-flying robots and antimatter engines, NASA's "wish list" doesn't read like the typical lists of wants and desires you might receive from a loved one. Which is great, because if NASA was jonesing for Pokemon we'd be in trouble.
The Fall 2010 Xbox update is pretty good. There are a lot of additions of third-party content, and the UI is, you know, better. But users want more.
If the rumors are true, the next Apple TV will be a cloud-connected, iPhone-based device. Not only it makes sense, but it's the only way they can create a best-of-breed gadget that can best Google TV, and be truly successful.
There are world-class filmmakers who work in SF. One — James Cameron — might even win the first Oscar given to a scifi picture. But here are a handful others who could do amazing things in the genre.
HTC's successor to the G1 is on the way, but with few details to go on, we've compiled a wish list of what could make the sequel to a good phone significantly better.
Sometimes reading rumors about the second iPhone is exactly like reading a wishlist of features people want. Whether it's subconscious or not, the rumors do get us thinking about what we want from a 3G iPhone. In short, we want an iPhone done right.

If you've been around long enough, you'll remember All Giz Wants—our series of fanciful and unlikely wishlist items that would totally make this the Best Holidays Ever if we got them. Here's one I've been wishing for for the better part of a decade: an all-in-one set top box that does everything.
Now that the Zune 2 features and services are all known, we should look ahead to what's coming in Zune 3—at least, what we want to come in Zune 3. It's not to say that we're not satisfied with Wi-Fi syncing and Windows Media Center content support, it's that, well, it's capable of so much more. Here's what we want in…
You're all familiar with the features announced for Leopard at last year's WWDC: Time Machine, Spaces, and new iChat/Mail apps. But there's definitely going to be more.
While the dust is still clearing from yesterday's All Things D (as in Digital, Damned, Drowsy, completely Delightful and even Dildonic at times), the best news for me has been Jobs' announcement that Apple is planning to open the Mac OS X Messiah-phone to developers. To achieve their need to balance security and…
I'm 30 today. I woke up this morning and went for a jog up to Twin Peaks. I noticed how much harder it is to run with an extra couple of inches on my waist.
