New Cr-48 Owners Finding Stickers That Were Requested By A Few — Like Me

First off, you’d have to note I’m not responsible for Google shipping out new Cr-48s with pretty stickers that you can put on the unit, but I did probably squish it into their heads. Visit the end of the post by hitting the ‘more’ link to see a conversation I had with some Chrome ninjas a few months ago about the matter, then the source link for more views of those tasty stickers that I want, once again.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Review: Like A Galaxy S, But Bigger

It’s the best Android tablet right now. The Motorola Xoom (and even possible Galaxy Tab sequels) will claim that title. It has a 7-inch LCD screen with such awesome color and saturation, I had to grab a Galaxy S just to compare the Super AMOLED to the LCD. There’s a 1GHz processor, Android 2.2 with Touchwiz 3.0 and tablet enhancements, a back-facing 3.2 megapixel camera and front-facing VGA, has a 16GB microSD card, and a massive 4,000 mAh battery. Read on after the break, to see the many trials (and joys) of using the Sprint 3G version of the Galaxy Tab for a few weeks.

Tumblr Is Testing A New Error Page — Designed By The Oatmeal

Well, this is awesome. In a recent post by Matthew Inman (a.k.a The Fricking Awesome Oatmeal), he talks about the state of the web (which is completely accurate, and deserves the time it takes to read the comic). In the meantime, Tumblr seems to be using the 503 error page on and off, although I’ve luckily screen-capped the image for your enjoyment above. Via: Tumblr

HP webOS ‘Topaz’ Finds Itself Leaked Out Again, Along With Plenty Of Details

Ready for a tablet that looks as promising as an iPad 2 and Motorola Xoom? Enter, the HP webOS tablet, codenamed “Topaz”. In a leak of fury by PreCentral, the specs of a rendered version of the Topaz are displayed. Major specs to make note of are the 9.7-inch 1024 x 768-pixel oil and scratch-resistant display, 1.2GHz processor with Adreno 220 graphics processor, 512MB of DDR2 RAM, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth (3G and 4G versions introduced sometime after launch), a front-facing camera, built-in Beats audio, and to ensure it lasts quite a while on a single charge, two 3,150 mAh batteries with 8 hours of usage, along with Touchstone v2 technology for wireless charging.

While it clearly looks like a (insert obvious name of tablet here), there’s much to welcome from the Topaz. Seen at the first source link is the leaked Topaz webOS tablet, then second is the UI elements, including a fantastic-looking on-screen keyboard. Via: PreCentral (1), (2)

Google Cloud Print Now Enabled For Mobile Printing

This is the next step — in printing. Back in the day, Google Cloud Print was announced, and proposed a feature where your Windows PC (Mac and Linux support inbound) would configure your printer to be web-connected, then an action from the user’s end (i.e a smartphone) would instigate the message being sent to Google’s cloud servers, then back to your printer. Starting now, the Gmail web app for Android 2.1+ phones and iOS devices will have the print feature enabled, but it will slowly roll out. This includes all mobile devices with support for HTML5. The tutorial link for setup is in the source link referenced. Via: Google Mobile Blog

Deutsche Telekom is satisfied with Windows Phone 7 sales

Even with Windows Phone 7 being a hyped (perhaps?) operating system, along with the revival of Microsoft in the mobile market. Cut to the chase, and reviews (like ours) mostly praise the OS, but its handset makers and creator, Microsoft, haven’t been keen on releasing sales numbers. The latest tidbit comes from Deutsche Telekom in Europe (owners of T-Mobile).

“We are ahead of budget, Microsoft is very pleased,” as Deutsche Telekom’s head of consumer marketing Ingo Hofacker said at the CeBIT preview in Munich. Seems good, enough if you ask me. But nothing is better than actual numbers, something that still remains in the dark. Via: WPCentral
