Review: Plantronics Discovery 665 Bluetooth Headset

With so many traffic laws being passed regulating cell phone usage in your car, a Bluetooth headset is on the top of every cell phone owner’s mind. The Plantronics Discovery 665 is targeted as the ideal solution for those road warriors who have frequent and lengthy phone calls while on the road so that they can keep their hands and attention on the wheel.

The Plantronics Discovery 665 Bluetooth Headset ($69.95) is a slick looking Bluetooth headset that uses AudioIQ technology to enhance performance. Does the technology translate to real life success? Could this be the Bluetooth headset for commuters around the world?

You’ll have to read on for the rest of the review!

iPhone Gaming: Quake This!

iPhone Gaming: Quake This!

While we've speculated about the huge potential for iPhone/iPod Touch gaming, is it possible we're still underestimating it?

Pre-SDK, Engadget brings us word -- and video -- of Quake 3 absolutely shredding Apple's little hand-hand revolution. Tilt-to-move, touch-to-fire, wi-fi to multi-player, it looks beyond sweet to me, and this is almost certainly still an early-stage, pre-app launch demo. And I'm not even sure it's coming officially from Carmack and id Software at this point!

But words don't do it justice. Check out the video after the break!

Unlock the iPhone, Tie it to .Mac Revenue?

Unlock the iPhone, Tie it to .Mac Revenue?

Roughly Drafted recently proposed that neither impending 3G nor poor supply chain management were to blame for Apple Store's lack of iPhone stock, but rather the international gray market for unlocked handsets.

Now, based on a post from Infrageeks, they're back with a look at how Apple could replace some carrier kick-back revenue with .Mac subscription revenue, if El Jobso saw fit to beef up the service and better tie it into the iPhone.

This Week in Smartphone Schadenfreude, April 5th Edition

Not evil twin to Phone Different Week in Review, not an invasion by Fake Steve, This Week in Smart Phone Schadenfreude brings you all the feel-better news you need about the smartphone world outside Apple's current media dominator.

Join us as we mock review the big news from last week at our sister sites. Everybody loves sibling rivalry!

JAR! Blogging 1.1.4 Jailbreak

JAR! Blogging 1.1.4 Jailbreak

Real nice, Bohn. Fine. Let's do this.

As most probably know, Canada doesn't have the iPhone. Well, we do, but it's a cr@ppy piece of VoIP. Nothing near as revolutionary or useful as Le Steve's little universe denter. We also have a GSM monopoly with data rates so high Warren Buffet wants no part of them. (A national newspaper once calculated that to even approach an AT&T type iPhone plan on Rogers would cost well over $1000 a month, and would still offer less service).

Picture of 3G iPhone... dressed in black?

Picture of 3G iPhone... dressed in black?

The iPod observer has a great shot of what could be the "back" of Apple's 3G iPhone. With the inventory running low across the country, could this be the next iteration? Will we know soon?

The iPhone is going on a year old and it would make sense for there to be a product refresh soon. But we are not even to the 12-month anniversary yet. What does Steve Jobs have up his sleeve?

US iPhone Shortage... Due to INTL Pirates?

US iPhone Shortage... Due to INTL Pirates?

As previously mentioned, US Apple Store's have been surprisingly (or suspiciously) out of iPhone stock lately.

Some have speculated that this is due to the immanent release of a 3G iPhone, others have cited atypical supply chain management issues, component shortages, or shipping problems.

In a long post based on info from an anonymous source nom-de-tip'd, Tantrum, Roughly Drafted brings a third option to the table: Pirates. (JAR!)

AT&T Mobility CEO Speaks: iPhone 3G Coming "in Months"

AT&T Mobility CEO Speaks: iPhone 3G Coming "in Months"

Gizmodo reports they "did lunch" with AT&T, where CEO of Mobility, Ralph de La Vega dropped the 3G bomb:

He had mentioned earlier in the event that he expected all of their smart integrated devices to be 3G in the next couple months. Sascha Segan from PC Mag asked it that included the iPhone. De la Vega responded, "Let me repeat what I said: I think that you're going to see our integrated devices be 3G devices in the not-too-distant future, and I mean months. That should be clear enough."

Clear as slightly less than crystal, but then pretty much everyone and their rss-feed has been expecting as much...

Thurrott'ling Windows Mobile: Take 2

Sure, die hard Windows pundit Paul Thurrott has already stepped out of the iPhone closet, skewering Windows Mobile both in his blog and in a (cold medicine induced?) tirade during the Windows Weekly podcast on the TWiT network.

REVIEW: Speck Products Techstyle Classic Leather

REVIEW: Speck Products Techstyle Classic Leather

The Speck Products Techstyle Classic Leather form-fitting case and holster ($24.95) for your iPhone, available now at the Phone different store, is an elegant, "classic" look (as the product suggests) that provides good protection for your iPhone with traditional leather styling. Keep reading for the full review!

I've always been a leather guy. I ride a Victory motorcycle (weather permitting) and there's nothing like pulling on the leather jacket, Google Mapping a scenic route on my iPhone, and roll some thunder down the open road.

As much as I like the tough-guy image (ha ha), I'm still an uber-geek at heart, so I love trying out new things for my iPhone. When my Speck Products Techstyle Classic Leather case and holster arrived in the mail from the Phone different store, I eagerly opened the plastic packaging and studied the design of this case-and-holster combo.

Send in the iClones: Killer Instinct?!

Send in the iClones: Killer Instinct?!

Let's see, another day, another trade show, another shameless iPhone knockoff...

We've covered (and recovered) the disappointing iPhone-esque stylings of the new Blackberry, and the interwebs have pretty much beaten the Meizu into a sparking, frying pulp, yet it seems the mobile design world just can't get enough of Poppa Jobs' little industry revolutionizer.
