We heard some pretty ridiculous estimates over the weekend, but these figures are straight out of Cupertino's mouth: over 300,000 iPads were sold on April 3rd. Specifically, that many were moved in the US as of midnight (PT, we're assuming) on Saturday, though this does include deliveries of pre-or

Although Seagate has long been viewed as a hard drive producer, advocate of pornographic archival (or not), and little more, the company is looking to break new ground by unleashing its family of FreeAgent \"data movers.\" Just under three months after being introduced to the world, the FreeAgent Go S

Alright, Palm, your days of making incrementally improved, merely evolutionary Treos may finally be numbered. Or not, depending on how your new owner wants to roll, but either way, rumors have now gone from a simmer to a full boil that a Palm sale is imminent. Like, seriously imminent -- Morgan Stan
