How the iPhone finally gets bitched

How many times have you heard the words "iPhone Killer"?

Only in the U.S. (which is behind more than 5 freaking years in mobile technology) you will keep hearing this weak ass tagline when comparing new touch screen phones in the U.S. to the so well branded iPhone. Oh yah, you did not know (!?) America the land of the brotherhood from sea to shining sea is behind more than 5 years in mobile technology. That's why your signal drops calls no matter where you are.

Right now while you are reading this, there is some 12 year old kid in Japan, Korea, or somewhere in UK watching HDTV on their mobile touch screen phone.

Right now, while you are on your mobile phone trying to download that slow GPS Map on your crackberry aka Blackberry, somewhere in Japan, Korea, and in UK there is a 16 year old walking around with his or her cell phone having a mobile video-conference with multiple people at once, (and you thought you were the shyt with that mobile GPS).

So many companies attempted to create the next "iPhone Killer" that they all need to be added to www.superfail.com
because they all failed.

But for once there might be a U.S. phone that can finally beat the iphone brand appeal.

I would like to introduce the following phones to the U.S. market, but it is up to you the consumers to make your pick.


What more can I say but Fire! See more at (http://www.expansys-usa.com/p.aspx?i=163460)

Digging in the crates with USB’s

I can recall not so long ago, helping my cousin who was a DJ lugging crates full of vinyl. Almost forgot to mention that it was at night and in the dead of winter freezing my ass off. If you never carried crates filled with vinyl, let me just tell you, it's literally hand blistering heavy. And usually if it was going to be a banging party there was at least six crates to carry. Ohhh I miss the good old day.

Well of course you guys know that those days are definitely over thanks to advancement of technology (and how digital music killed the vinyl and the crates). Now days DJ's like the amazing and sexy DJ Pesce - http://www.myspace.com/djpesce
pretty much carries a small Apple computer, her iPod, and her Crackberry phone. (Honestly she is for real a Digging in the crates DJ; don't let her short sexiness fool you).

Well here is a gadget that can turn your vinyl to digital with ease. The Ion iTTUSB Turntable with USB Record for only $120 bucks

"In an era before MP3s, CD-ROMs, and RIAA lawsuits, vinyl was the medium of choice for music lovers around the world. If you're old enough to remember those days, you're probably the proud owner of a few vinyl records that you wish you could convert to a modern digital format for your iPod or other digital device. Your wish has been granted with the iTT USB turntable from Ion. Using an USB connection and some open-source software this gadget converts and records your vinyl treasures into MP3s that you can use on modern music devices." - http://www.news.com/2300-1040_3-6207121-1.html

So throughout those cords and connect that USB, this is a good gift for that uncle who just won't get rid of that basement full of records.

Okay peeps, I had to get the facts on this one. On Monday, May 5, 2008 I wrote about The SideKick Mobile Video!?!?!?!?

At the time it was just a rumor. Well now I have the inside scoop because I’m going to be the first to kill the rumor. The SideKick Mobile Video is in fact freaking true! You will be able to record and watch videos on your stank ass SK LX.

Now you can make your own home made porn and post it to youporn.com, catch Los Angeles cops on video beating down local hard working Mexican’s, and email your videos to friends and

I’m not sure how good the video quality will be but it has been reported that the codec choice maybe H.264, (To put it simple, this is the same codec that YouTube encodes videos in Apple iPhone.)

Ohh shyt! That means you will also be able to watch YouTube videos directly on the LX. (Time for you sad SK3 people to upgrade)

Not only will Danger INC. / MSN / PMX??? launch this OTA – over the air update, they are also putting out the Tony Hawk’s New Limited Addition SK LX – move over D-Wade SideKick .

The SideKick Mobile Video!?!?!?!?

What could come after the SideKick LX? What features could Microsoft Corp/Danger Inc. (or is it PMX?) possibly offer besides that all so amazing flip keypad used for text messaging and instant messaging people while driving?

I mean the Myspace application has saved so many addicted Myspacers lives, (freakin Myspace crack heads). But what else can SideKick offer that would make an urban geek say wow!?

How about a video application and the ability to record video and send videos to your friends and family instantly from your SK.

Well here is a rumor for your asses. There is a rumor of a Video support coming soon to the Sidekick LX.

As seen from Hiptop3.com, the two screen shots confirm that both video recording and video playback will be included in the rumored update.

If this rumor is true, it will possibly be an OTA (Over The Air) update.

(Hey Money, I bet your Palm can't do that.)

So I will keep you SK LX lovers updated on what will maybe the next best thing since Kool-Aid and Jordan Sneakers.
