Intel wants to charge $50 to upgrade CPU performance

Posted in Intel by Conner Flynn on September 19th, 2010

This one will make you angry if you want every bit of power from your CPU. Intel is asking customers to pay extra if they want to unleash the full power of their store-bought cpus. An Engadget reader was at Best Buy when he spotted this $50 card. Intel websites confirm it. The card lets you download software to unlock extra threads and cache on the new Pentium G6951 processor.

Hardware.info got themselves an early sample of the chip and it’s a full 1MB of L3 cache that’s enabled plus HyperThreading support. Chip companies already sell hardware-locked chips, so this isn’t new. The process is called binning, but binned chips are usually sold with cores or cache locked because that part of their chips turned are defective after printing.

If you think that your phone was expensive, think again. The Ulysse Nardin Chairman phone is $50K and doesn’t even run Froyo. Instead you get 2.1. CrunchGear recently went hands on with the phone to see what you get for $50k. Turns out, you also get a dock.

A dock unlike any other, with polished wood panels, speakers and USB ports. Still not worth $50K, but we won’t tell the rich. Hit up the link to get the full scoop if you are shopping for an insane luxury phone.

Android Market passes the 50,000 apps milestone

Posted in Android by Conner Flynn on April 24th, 2010

Let us play the Android Market’s overbearing Aunt for a minute as we pinch it’s cheeks and tell it how big it has grown since we last saw it and dig in our purse for a quarter as we pet it’s head. Though Apple is still top dog when it comes to its App Store, the Android Market is also growing at a very rapid pace.

The latest reports say that the Android Market has crossed the 50,000 app mark, which is about a week after Google confirmed the 38,000 app mark. 50,000 is still a way off from the App Store’s official 185,000, but at the rate it’s going, it’ll provide Apple with some healthy competition in no time.

Wii getting $50 price drop?

Posted in Wii by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2009

Wii getting $50 price drop?Weekly newspaper ads are pretty easy to fake, but we have a feeling that this one is real and if that’s the case, it means we’re getting a Wii price cut on September 27th. Either that or someone at Toys R Us has been hitting the crack pipe.

If it’s not true and you can expect a price cut next holiday season rather than this holiday season. Just be patient and we will see what Santa brings us. The other guys got a price cut, so Nintendo would naturally want to stay competitive.

Palm sells 50,000 Pre smartphones in opening weekend

Posted in Palm by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2009

Verizon getting the Palm Pre in 6 monthsPalm and Sprint haven’t confirmed the numbers officially, but according to JPMorgan in a Wall Street Journal article, “sales in the first two days probably exceeded 50,000.” The figure was “aligned with expectations, but probably fell short of the 146,000 reported first-gen iPhone sales” during its opening weekend. And that was due to “capacity constraints in manufacturing.”

So it looks like the Pre launch was a success. Next weekend’s sales may put it all in perspective. It’s great news for Palm, but it isn’t all roses. We’ll have to see if new Palm owners are still having problems or not.
