This Litetouch Keyboard Has An Touchscreen Keypad


This 2.4GHz Mad Catz Wireless Litetouch Keyboard is missing a keypad, but what is has instead is even better — a touch-sensitive area that alternates between that numeric keypad, multimedia controls, and twelve customizable icons that go to websites and more. In addition, a trackball resides just below the touchpad which...


Android 2.2 ‘Froyo’ Is Finally Here


It looks like we were a little premature in our Droid X debut, saying that Android 2.2 would hit sometime in the middle of the summer. No, Froyo is out today in a nice little surprise from Google. It’s totally open-source, of course, and offers a wealth of new improvements...


Apple Confirms White iPhone 4 Delay Until Mid July


Apple has issued a brief press release (and by brief, I mean two sentences) that confirms the unavailability of the white iPhone 4 at launch — instead, it’s going to hit sometime in the middle of July. The white models have been “more challenging to manufacture than expected,” which has...

iPhone 4 iFixit

iPhone 4 Torn Apart


The iPhone 4 isn’t even officially out and yet iFixit has already managed to tear it apart.  Confirmed is 512mb of RAM.  Removing the battery is easy once the back panel assembly is out of the way, which sounds as simple as removing the two small screws at the bottom. ...

Belkin’s AV360 Converter Puts Your Consoles On Your iMac Screen


We’ve talked about ways of getting your Apple products to play nicely with displays before, but this new cable is pretty sweet. Belkin’s AV360 Mini DisplayPort Converter lets you use that stunning 27-inch iMac screen as a display for units with HDMI outputs, like game consoles, specifically the Xbox 360...


This LED Porch Light Packs A Motion Sensor


One of my favorite things to do this summer is kick it on the porch and enjoy some time outside at night. But having sufficient lighting for such an endeavor can be difficult for some, especially apartment renters. This LED Porch Light solves a lot of problems by bringing bright...


Yup, iPhone 4s Are Already Being Scratched


This is Engadget’s iPhone 4 Review unit. They’ve had it longer than the general public, but not by much. As you can see, it’s got some noticeable scratches on it. Not huge, mind you, but they’ve appeared a lot sooner than I expect most users would be happy with. Oh...
