Tech Talk: Gadget News

Okay, so I admit it.  I'm a bit of a gadget geek.  Okay, I'm a BIG OLE GADGET GEEK.  Hopefully, some of you all are too.  I read the gadget blogs and get amped when a software upgrade comes out.  Hey, it's the little things in life, right?  Anywho, here are some techy tidbits from the week.

T-Mobile Sidekick Takes a Tumble

Many T-Mobile Sidekick users lost their data over the weekend.  T-Mobile blames Microsoft and Danger for the hiccup.  The company says:
Regrettably, based on Microsoft/Danger's latest recovery assessment of their systems, we must now inform you that personal information stored on your device - such as contacts, calendar entries, to-do lists or photos - that is no longer on your Sidekick almost certainly has been lost as a result of a server failure at Microsoft/Danger. That said, our teams continue to work around-the-clock in hopes of discovering some way to recover this information. However, the likelihood of a successful outcome is extremely low.

Laptop Prices Heading Down?

Cheap netbook computers are driving down revenue for the overall laptop market. The low price of netbooks (around $300) was a big contributor to the drop in the market. The average selling price for laptops in the second quarter was $688, 19% lower than a year ago.  Experts think continued decline in average prices across all portable computer categories will likely lead to the first year-to-year drop in mobile PC revenue.  So that's good news for students and the rest of us on budgets!
