No football, no parades, just the top of a grassy mountain, 3,300 feet above the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur, 25 friends and too many dogs to count. Yeah, we went camping and that meant we had a better time than you did.
Sushi is at its most delicious when it's simple. Obviously years of training is required to become a master sushi chef and details matter immensely but you can boil down the essence of sushi to rice and fish. Yum, however you slice it. But could you make sushi even simpler? One sushi chef did. He used a single grain…
For all the gazillions of wireless speakers out there, Jawbone's Jambox is almost certainly the best-known. Last year the company introduced a Big Jambox, so it shouldn't really be any surprise that they'd come along with a smaller one as well: Mini Jambox.
Big screens are nice. But sometimes the extra real estate isn't worth the lack of portability. If tablets are considered mobile devices, they should be easy to take with you, right?
With every new Apple gadget, you've got to have a drop test to see how it fares in clumsy hands. This test from SquareTrade pits the new iPad mini against its big brother the iPad 3, and chief rival the Nexus 7. All and all, it holds up pretty well, but nothing is invincible.
There's almost no question that the iPad Mini is a terrific device; it's got too much pedigree and money behind it to be anything else. But barring some sort of miracle from on Ive, it's also certifiably overpriced. And that's a bad sign for Apple.
Tim Cook and his mariachis are presenting the new ultra-thin, ultra-light, magical iPad Mini or iPad Air* today at 1pm Eastern /10am Pacific at the California Theater in San Jose. They will probably announce other products too. We'll be commenting it live.
We got really excited yesterday when we heard there would be a miniaturized Galaxy S III coming. Our excitement didn't last long, because a second rumor hinted that the specs wouldn't be anywhere close to the original S III.
It's getting so close, we can almost taste. In fact, Instapaper developer Marco Armnet already saw it. Kinda. Arment spotted in his iOS developer code logs what he believes to be the codes for two new iPad models—minis.
With the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Bloomberg and Apple's unofficial PR department confirming it, the new iPad mini seems like a sure shot.
The Drobo family of products are generally respected amongst professionals and tech nerds, but the one complaint was that the dynamic storage arrays were too slow. Drobo listened, and now they're answering back with the Drobo 5D and Drobo Mini, two devices designed to handle the most demanding of file transfers.
Check out tons of teasers and behind-the-scenes footage from A&E's new miniseries based on Stephen King's book Bag of Bones. Starring Pierce Brosnan, this series looks like your classic ghost-in-the-water tale — but with King you know there's always a twist!
The new Mac Mini is a roomy little bugger. Inside its aluminum body, there's an extra SATA connector and room for a second hard drive. You'll need to find a SATA cable, but iFixit is on the hunt for one.
I'm pretty paranoid about losing my data to a hard drive failure, so the LaCie Rugged Mini drive is at once awesome and terrible for me. It's great because the thing's fast and basically indestructible, but I can't help thinking I'll just screw with it until I find a way to break it.
These guns are all hand-made replicas of real guns...only they're shrunken and miniaturized 4 to 4.5 times the regular size. Alexander Perfiliev, the master minigunmaker, has been building these beautiful guns for 30 years.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia Mini and Xperia Mini Pro take off right where the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro did before them, as in they're super tiny Android phones that pack a little bit o' punch. Both have 3-inch 320 x 480 screens, 1 GHz processors, 5-megapixel cameras and run Android 2.3 Gingerbread. SE did a little dizzy…
