The SPINN is easily the sexiest device on iriver's tawdry pallet of gadget-lust. Unfortunately, we found the user experience to be a bit lacking at launch. While the feature list is long and impressive, the UI just couldn't pull it all together. Now SPINN's gone 2.0 and with it hope for the device...

OK, we'll admit, we hate playing online flash games in hope of getting ourselves some dodgy prize. But look how freakin' cute Kiano is up there! To win, all you have to do is drop push pins as quickly and closely as you can on 10 random cities. We gave it our best go and sadly came up pretty short...

Who knows how much this is worth, but there's a lot of chatter flying around today about some text strings in the beta release of iPhone OS 2.1 that make reference to an "iPod2,1."

What does this mean? Well, it could mean that the AppStore and iPhone...

Gizmodo and GearLive are reporting that the iPhone 2.0 firmware will go golden master (locked for shipping) this week. Golden master does not necessarily mean that Apple will ship the firmware this week (after all, Steve said that it would ship in "early July") but it does mean that the firmware and...
