April 30, 2009 could be the date the Gigabyte netbooks will be launched. There is the Gigabyte T1028M TouchNote and the Gigabyte M1022 Booktop that we are all waiting to see.

I personally like the Gigabyte TouchNote because of its touchscreen display. It can also be converted into tablet mode.

The price is estimated to be over $650. It is a bit higher compared to other netbooks but I hope when it is launched, the price would go down.

Words have been spreading online that the latest BlackBerry smartphone, BlackBerry Niagara 9630, will hit stores in May 2009. There is no exact date of the release and no pricing is mentioned, but this will be a good thing to watch. Why?

BlackBerry Niagara will be handled by Verizon Wireless' network. Palm Pre, which is also said to be released this summer is Sprint-exclusive. Don't you know that Apple may drop a new iPhone in June or July? AT&T maintains the exclusive carrier rights on the iPhone.

So what is this about? It is about Verizon vs Sprint vs AT&T! Who will prevail? We will wait and see...

Like the old iPod shuffle isn't small at all, Apple unveils a much smaller iPod shuffle. The new iPod shuffle may be tiny (measures less than a AA battery) but the memory is larger than the previous model. It has a memory capacity of 4GB. That can store about 1,000 songs.


To make it that small, Apple has to remove most of the buttons from the body ans incorporate them them instead into the headphone cord.

And the new iPod shuffle price? It is $79 and is available now at apple.com in dark gray and silver colors.

With the ultra-fast, 10-shots-per-second speed of the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1, it's easy to capture a swinging bat just before it hits the ball.

Remarkable Exmor CMOS technology even makes it easy to capture photos in low light while maintaining smooth color gradation and crisp detail.

Especially useful for beautiful landscape shots or shooting skyscrapers, the Sweep Panorama mode takes seamless 224-degree shots with breathtaking 9.1 megapixel results—just press the shutter and sweep in a horizontal or vertical direction. And don't miss the 20x optical zoom or the Intelligent Auto mode that eliminates the guesswork by automatically adjusting camera settings for you.

Got a shaky hand? The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 Optical SteadyShot image stabilization has you covered by reducing blur for sharp, lifelike images.
