There were various intriguing designs in New York City’s Reinvent Payphones competitors, but just one can win the ballot. Individuals have actually made their selection: NYFi will function as the motivation for street-side payphone overhauls. It’s not difficult to see why, as the proposal would theoretically fix a number of metropolitan troubles at the same time. Each NYFi center would dish out free WiFi, taking the tons off of the cellular network. It would additionally utilize open, smartphone-like software and easily versatile touchscreen hardware to consolidate numerous of the boxes that clutter the sidewalks, such as ticket equipments and bike sharing stations. We’ll accept that the gaining concept sounds a little positive to us– we wouldn’t be shocked if any finished city task fell short of the suitable. Even if we don’t get a WiFi hotspot on every edge, however, NYFi’s ultimate offshoot can be a welcome replacement for landline phones that have mostly collected dust in recent times.

With the Ubuntu variant Mint roaming free as one of the more attractive Linux breeds, why not lock it up in its own mini-case? That’ll happen soon thanks to mintBox, a joint venture with CompuLab, which will put the OS in two of its fanless PC-3‘s — the T40N and T56N — priced at $ 476 and $ 518, respectively. That might seem steep for the tiny 6 x 6 x 1-inch AMD G-series boxes, but with a Radeon HD 6290 APU and USB 3.0 / eSata ports, power is above par for its class. CompuLab will give some of the proceeds to Mint’s team, so if you maybe want to throw some cash at the so fresh, so clean Linux distro, hit the source for more details.
Question by : Will a sim card serve the same purpose on xoom as micro sd?
I don’t hav a micro only a regular SD card. But I do have a sim card from my old Samsung phone I cant remember what is was called but it doesn’t have a Contract anymore. So I put that into the xoom. Will this do anything. I currently have an iPhone 4. This has a contract and everything it is my current phone. So should I use this SD card or will my data or something be at risk?
Answer by Kevin
It wont do anything at all. A sim card and SD card are two completely different cards. A sim card holds carrier information as well as contacts (in some cases). An SD card stores data (any kind of data).

Watch out, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent is ready to challenge Beats headphones with his own line of headphones. Curtis Jackson’s vast empire includes a headphone company, SMS Audio, which recently acquired KonoAudio for an undisclosed amount and is set to unveil a complete portfolio of products in the coming weeks.
Sounds sort of familiar, right? Well, 50 Cent previously had a deal with Sleek Audio to produce and distribute a so-called wireless hybrid headphone system dubbed Sleek by 50. Sleek Audio even showed off the model at CES 2011, but that deal feel through last May. 50 Cent’s G-Unit Brands, Inc affiliate, SMS Audio, LLC, then picked up the baton and is now running towards the release with at least three headphones in tow.
The company has yet to revel much about the upcoming headphones besides stating that the line will consist of three product categories: wired, wireless, and earbuds. Reportedly at least one model will feature full on-board playback controls and some sort of shared listening experience described in a press release as allowing “up to four listeners to simultaneously experience the highest-caliber wireless sound from a single source.”
The purchase of KonoAudio gives SMS Audio established worldwide distribution and marketing channels along with the founder of KonoAudio, Brian Nohe, who will bring his 25 years of executive leadership experience to the role of president at SMS Audio. KonoAudio also provides SMS Audio with more experience in headphone manufacturing and marketing of high-end headphones.
I’m told that headphones will debut in the coming weeks, likely in the heat of the holiday spending spree. No word on pricing, but they’ll probably follow the price point proven possible by the Beats line although it remains to be heard if 50 Cent’s headphones will feature the same sound quality — not that sound quality is the most important feature for lifestyle headphones.
Well, it looks like BlackBerry’s banking on another BBM to pull it out of the enterprise-only lurch, and this one should be like music to your ears. Earlier this week, we reported that RIM was readying a new music service, and now All Things D is giving us some juicy (unofficial) details on the tentatively titled BlackBerry Music. The publication says $ 5 a month will give users access to 50 songs that they can share with their BlackBerry-toting friends (also signed up for the service). What’s more, it could be officially pumping the jams to the UK, US, and Canada as soon this fall, with other territories to follow in 2012. Rumor also has it that users won’t be able to port the music to other devices, unless they happen to have a PlayBook handy. Somehow we suspect that last bit won’t be what draws the youngster in.
