Breffo Spiderpodium Tablet Review: It’s A Useful Arthropod

It’s the Breffo Spiderpodium Tablet, built by Breffo, quite obviously. It’s main purpose is to have the shape and legs of a spider (hence the name), while each leg is segmented and can be transformed to grip around the tablet of your choosing. As an iPad 2 owner, the Spiderpodium tablet is incredibly useful (and can even be deemed as protection despite not covering the back or front of the device in any way). Review past the jump.

Sony Has Admitted That PlayStation Network Got Pwned

So finally. Sony has gone out and said something (which is sometimes rare in situations like these) in a recent blog post stating that the reason for PlayStation Network and Qriocity to be down for more than 2 days at the moment (and disrupting my usual pwnage runs) was due to “an external intrusion”. However, this statement does confirm more than one thing: the downtime will continue, as no scheduled restoration of service was mentioned.

Samsung DROID Charge To Cost $300 On Contract With 4G LTE

This is rather discomforting. The first $300 4G LTE phone? Yup, and it brings along with the massive price a 4.3-inch AMOLED Plus display, rear-facing 8 megapixel camera, a 1.3 megapixel front-facing shooter, 1GHz processor, Android 2.2 and LTE support with free mobile hotspot “for a limited time”. Unlimited 4G data still costs $29.99 and of course, the $300 on contract price. *Shudders*
