T-Mobile USA isn't backing down with its somewhat controversial "4G speeds" rhetoric for its rapidly-growing HSPA+ network -- and when you consider that real-world performance on it can meet or exceed what Clear and Sprint will get you in some markets on WiMAX, we can't say we blame them. Next to e...

Cornell sure seems to be doing its part to usher in a world where robots call the shots and humans spend most of their time cowering in the corners of bomb-out buildings. Researchers at the school have variously applied their brain matter (and we're guessing the occasional government check) to suc...

TWC may have struck early with two new ones for San Diego back in November, but Cox has been the one laying down the gauntlet of late. To that end, Time Warner Cable is shooting back with a new HD trio for the residents of the California city: ABC Family HD (735), FX HD (752), and SPEED HD (793). We...

Cox may have upset some San Diego residents by acting all proud of those 19 new HD VOD slots, but it's backing things up with five linear stations that are sure to juice up that holiday spirit. Starting on December 29th (far off, we know), subscribers in the region will find FOX News HD (737), FX ...

Hate to get you all riled up for nothing, San Diego, but Cox is dropping a whopping 19 new high-def channels in your area. Too bad every last one of them is simply an HD On Demand channel. The carrier is now touting that locals have 67 HD channels to flip through, which is factual per se, but hard...

The proud men and women of the United States Navy have to get their HD fix somehow, right? Being that the answer to that is undoubtedly "yes," we're happy to see that Cox Communications has signed on to provide HD programming, high-speed internet and digital phone services to the Pacific Beacon re...

Slow and steady wins the race, or so they say, but we're pretty sure San Diego residents are ready for Time Warner Cable to hurry up with these HD rollouts. After dropping two in late October and promising to get 10 to 15 newcomers on the air over the next little while, TWC has just pushed out two m...

There's really no telling why Cox didn't just lump AMC HD into its last San Diego expansion effort, but regardless, we're sure customers in the city will take what they can get. Starting this week, AMC HD will be available in the sunny California town on slot 757, and Cox also proclaims that Comedy ...

Time Warner Cable is doing its darnedest to beef up the HD lineup in San Diego to something respectable, but it's a slow, agonizing process to watch. After receiving two new ones in September, the firm has added in two others as it attempts to include 10 to 15 more over the next short while. As of n...

While Time Warner Cable and AT&T have been bolstering their HD lineups in sunny San Diego, Cox has been sitting idly by watching the time pass. Finally, the carrier is stepping up and doing a little something to keep things competitive by offering up a fresh half dozen HD channels in the Califor...

We've a feeling we'll soon be unable to keep up with all the Total Home DVR rollouts, but we aren't complaining one bit about the speed at which AT&T is getting it out there. Hot on the heels of Austin, Fresno, and a handful of other cities getting gifted, AT&T has quietly given Houston, T...

While Comcast has been handing out HD channels like a rich guy hands out candy on Halloween, TWC has been mighty stingy with its high-def expansions. Handing out a network here and there, we see the carrier gifting San Diego, California with two more: Science HD (780) and Disney HD (763). Not much, ...

In an oddly prescient lawsuit filed yesterday, a San Diego man claims that Apple and AT&T knowingly oversold the iPhone 3G, and overloaded the network, causing slow data throughput. We may never know if this morning's outage was in any way related to the claims the man, William J. Gillis, makes...

Practically biking distance from my girlfriend's house will be a brand-spankin'-new Apple Store for San Diego North, in Carlsbad. No longer will north county residents have to drive to UTC or Fashion Valley to get a Mac fix. Or fixed, as the case may be. Apple is planning a grand opening there at 10...

While KFMB-TV has had a stranglehold on the HD news market in sunny San Diego, that's about to change. Beginning in September, the local ABC affiliate (KGTV) will begin airing its local newscasts in high-definition, and for those impatient souls, the local FOX affiliate (KSWB-TV) will be making the ...

Wouldn't you know it? Just weeks after AT&T announced an expansion of its U-verse service in sunny San Diego, along comes Time Warner Cable to keep things marginally competitive. According to a local, the cable company is sending out informational cards which inform users of an impending switche...
