Gmail Expands Contact List Cap for the Uber Popular

There are a lot of people with a Gmail account, myself included, and while I’ve never been concerned about the contact limit I guess some people were. Until two days ago (May 4th) the cap for Gmail contacts was set at 10,000. I know, how dare they (#sarcasm). But, for those who needed more, Google … Continue reading

An Amazon Tablet is On the Way: Samsung Has Been Contracted for the Project

According to gdgt, Amazon.com is set to dive into the tablet wars, and they have Samsung hardware for support. This is beautiful. Amazon.com is one of my favorite companies to purchase things from. I would say that of everything I buy, food aside, 90% comes from Amazon.com. I’m a student and because of that I … Continue reading

Amazon Cloud Player: “Oh yeah baby” – Chef

I just visited amazon.com for the sole purpose of purchasing Dumb & Dumber on Blu-Ray (because it’s hilarious) and was greeted with a rather lengthy message from Jeff Bezos (CEO/Founder of Amazon.com). These messages usually have to do with some new feature or product offering, and this was no exception. ┬áThis is that letter: Now, … Continue reading

Taxes for Amazon.com? If Walmart and Target Get Their Way…

If you’re like me, you are very familiar with amazon.com. If you’re like me, you shop there over most any other place because of their low prices, fast shipping, and lack of a state sales tax(most states–more on this later). When you’re spending more than $1,000 there is very little reason to not shop at … Continue reading

Samsung 9 Series Notebook Sets its Sights on the Macbook Air

So, a brand other than Pansonic has arrived to deliver a product that can compete with the MacBook Air. Panasonic has long been involved in the lightweight PC market, but has never been able (nor really tried) to come close to the price point of the MacBook Air. The Panasonics can deliver i7 processors, weigh … Continue reading

iPad 2 (Really just an iPad 1.5) vs. Moto Xoom vs. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

The Apple press event is taking place right now in San Francisco. So far we’ve learned that the iPad 2 is 33% thinner than the original iPad. That is thinner than the iPhone 4! It looks really good and comes with a front and rear facing camera. It also packs the new A5 chip which … Continue reading
