Mirage is a free app for iPhone that lets you send photos and videos to friends that disappear after a few seconds never to be seen again. One tap on a friend and the photo or video is sent out, no questions asked. Does this sound a bit familiar? Yes, it's another app taking on the concept that ma...

A number of weeks ago we went on a vacation to Las Vegas, and I was curious to see if an app can replace a traditional tour book. I picked the most respected tour book I knew, Frommer's Las Vegas 2009 by Mary Herczog; and an iPhone/iPod touch app called Vegas Mate [iTunes Link] which trucks on years...

We just stayed at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas for a week, and found that the guest rooms are more than Mac friendly. In each room, built right into the wall, is a system from Teledapt that allows you to plug in just about anything and have it show up on the in-room 42" plasma screen. As long as...

The Chronicles of Spellborn is a game we've been hearing more about lately. We recently noticed an interview by Nolvadex at the Italian gaming site Gamesource with The Chronicles of Spellborn's lead community manager Pierre-Yves "Mirage" Deslandes. Mirage discusses a relatively smooth European launc...

Right on cue, the 2605 Mirage has graced Verizon with 2.32 ounces of low-end Finnish bliss. Your hard-earned $49.99 on contract is going to net you Bluetooth, a VGA cam, VZ Navigator support, speakerphone, and that's about it -- so if you were hoping for EV-DO or a CDMA N97, you just keep on lookin...

We're coming right up on a year since we first heard of the 2605's existence, and with a VGA camera just about the most interesting feature we can find on the spec sheet, we're having a hard time saying with a straight face that it was worth the wait. Be that as it may, the unassuming flip is still...

Okay, bear with us here, because the road to this device is a winding one, to say the least: first, there was the Samsung i780 that launched in Europe. It was informally and unofficially branded the BlackJack III, thanks to its obvious resemblance to Samsung's own BlackJack series that has been a s...

phoneArena has cobbled together all the details it could dig up on a trio of Samsungs apparently destined for AT&T, and needless to say, we're not looking at your average anonymous midrange flips here (and kudos to that, by the way). First up is the A767 "Sangria," which apparently borrows the...

We just love the breadth of offerings in speaker design, especially towards the high-end of the market. If bipolar, dipolar and tripolar drivers are enough "polar" for you, you can try out an omnipolar speaker like the ones produced by Mirage. Even though the company is sticking to the unique-looki...
