This device destruction/torture thing doesn’t get old does it?
The original intention of the video was to create a viral campaign to promote the EZGrill disposable grill. We’re not sure if it worked but the phones would’ve found a loving home with us instead being grilled to oblivion.
Check out the three phones being grilled and also who survived the longest along with links to the many other device torture tests we have in our archives right after the jump.
This has to be one of the sexiest iDevices dock we’ve ever laid our eyes on and coming from the maestro of quality sound and design, Bang & Olufsen, you know that there’s a great deal of performance to backup that masterpiece of a design.
We’re crazy over this dock. It supports virtually every iPod, iPhone and iPad in existence. The BeoSound 8 features unique conical shape speakers the are designed both for form and function. “Design-wise, the shapes ‘disappear’ to create an unobtrusive impression from most viewing angles and make placement easier. In terms of audio quality, they eliminate standing waves by avoiding parallel surfaces.”
There’s also a BeoPlayer app that replicates the dock’s controls onto the screen of your iDevice. In addition to playing music from docked devices the BeoSound 8 can also play music from any device via USB.
The BeoSound 8 comes in either black or white with aluminium details and matching power cord. There are also options to change the fabric speaker covers to lavender blue, purple, green, yellow, black and white.
For more information hit the link. Head on over to after the jump for a promotional video of the dock and if you’re wondering, the BeoSound 8 retails for GBP900 or about RM4,500. Ouch!
We’ve all gone through that awkward moment where the auto-correct is determined to make a fool out of us by inserting at inappropriate word at just the right moment making important businessy texts to your boss sound silly and innocent replies to your parents sound raunchy.
Anyways, we found this really funny site that with a collection of text messages that went all weird when auto-correct tries to be all helpful with what you’re typing.
Check out damnyouautocorrect here.
Next time you’re texting, remember, the auto-correct is there to make sure you read what you type!
Google has released a teaser in a form of a twitpic that its latest Android Gingerbread OS is coming out real soon. The original tweet by GoogleMobile says that their cafes are baking something sweet. Perhaps this is part of their internal launch within Google itself which possibly mean that the public announcement should be happening anytime next week. Now we are just wondering when exactly they will launch the actual OS.
The green Android robot Andy has always seen as cute and bubbly despite having lack of expression on the face. What if it becomes evil and creepy like Chucky from Child’s Play?
Coming soon, there’s a movie called BlinkyTM that stars Max Records from “Where the Wild Things Are” and a green little droid that looks awfully familiar. We don’t want to spoil the trailer for you so watch the video after the jump.
Yes is having an issue which affects early registered users of the Yes ID. During its opening day for Yes ID registrations, most early birds had snapped up 018 mobile numbers from the 018-331 XXXX and 018-332 XXXX blocks.
Yes via an email to these early subscribers, informs that these range of 018 numbers may not be able to make or receive calls from numbers on other networks due to not being able to interconnect with these other networks.
Before a mobile number on one network can call and receive calls from numbers of other networks, there must be an interconnect agreement between the parties. This latest information from yes means that at launch, its subscribers who have taken 018 numbers from the 018-331 and 018-332 block, will not be able to call and receive calls from other networks.
Interconnect has always been a stumbling block for new telcos trying to enter into the mobile market as the existing ones would usually and deliberately take their own sweet time to allow interconnectivity for obvious reasons. But having said that, it is a point to note that when Tune Talk and U Mobile launched their networks, no such issues had arise.
The email Yes wasn’t specific on which network its Yes number are not able to interconnect with but considering the fact that the issue was major enough to warrant a decision to email the pre-registered subscribers who have selected these number blocks, it would be safe to assume that interconnect with most of the local mobile telcos have not been established.
Considering the promises of better everything from Yes, this is a major set-back for the brand. The email says that this interconnect issue is temporary and full interconnect access will be solved by the first week of December 2010. But as a brand that has a whole lot to prove to gain customers’ confidence, this is a start off the wrong foot.
If you were amongst the early subscribers to pre-register with Yes and have reserved numbers within the 018-331 and 018-332 blocks you have the option to keep your earlier pre-registered number and wait for about two weeks before you can make and receive calls to other networks or opt to change your number block to 018-306 and maintain the last four digits from your previous Yes number. The choice is yours until November 15 so you have to act fast.
At time of this post, yes ID registrations are showing 018-591 XXXX range up for grabs. To register, head to www.yes.my.

The BlackBerry Style 9760 is RIM’s first clamshell device with full QWERTY keyboard which runs on CDMA. The clamshell design is a rare sight these days in a sea full of candybar form factors. Currently it runs on Sprint in the US and we wonder if RIM will offer a GSM version for the rest of us.
