Apple Cuts iCloud Storage

The skies must be clearning over the Apple campus.  Hot on the release of their iPhone 5, they are announcing a cut to their iCloud storage - again.  Originally you received 25GB of free storage, but they've decided that they need more of your money - so you now only get 5GB for free.  If you want to keep your 20GB it will cost you a mere $40 a year.

Apple had offered users an additional 20GB of data early in the platform's existence. As the MobileMe brand was rolled into the iCloud service, however, Apple said that it would be reducing the free storage offer for all users down to 5GB.


Sony Smart Wireless Headset Pro

SWHPWe have just taken a look at the Sony Smart Wireless Headset pro.  This is a stereo Bluetooth headset built especially for Android phones and it comes with a suite of applications that make it a lot "smarter" than your average headset.  The OLED display is a nice touch.  Take a look and see if it lives up to it's claims and if this headset is worth your money.

The Smart Wireless Headset pro is comfortable in the ears, but not so comfortable to wear.  The cord lengths are just awkward and when clipped to the neck of your shirt (best for call quality), the cord pokes in your throat and is just odd to wear.  You can't clip it to your sleeve if you are active as the clip will slip off.


Portable Computing

If you are looking for something to do some computing while on the road and a tablet just won't cut it, the Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook reviewed over at TechwareLabs could be just what you are looking for.  This one featrues a 2nd-Generation Core i5 CPU, 4GB of DDR3 and a 128GB SSD - all for under 3.3lbs. 

Maybe you want something with a little more gaming prowess.  If that is the case, the Eurocom Monster 11.6" Gaming Laptop may be more what you're looking for.  It won't last as long on the battery, but it does have a GeForce 600 series GPU as well as a full Core i7 CPU into this package.


Google Maps Ported to iOS 6

Apple was in such a hurry to toss Google by the side of the road that they rushed out their "revolutionary" maps for iOS 6.  The problem is - Apple ran away from one of the best things for the iPhone.  Check out a bunch of fails over at CNET as well as how one hacker got it (sort of working) on iOS 6.  Hopefully Apple approves this app after the hordes of users complain at how bad Apple's maps really do suck.

Thanks to Tigger for sending this one over.

If you want to read a review before you drop your hard-earned cash, we've got some money-saving game reviews below.


Monday Audio Action

As we wrap up the news for this fine Monday morning, we've got a few audio reviews to share.  The first, and probably more relevant for gamers is the Tt eSPORTS Shock One headset over at XSReviews.  This is a pretty sweet headset with a nice tidy flip-up mic. 

The Audyssey Lower East Side Audio Dock Air at NikKTech sounds a bit ghetto, but it's actually pretty sweet.  As long as we're covering speakers, check out the Libratone Lounge Speaker at at eTeknix.  Both of these will up your listening pleasure, although I'd prefer to have the Libratone.


Windows 8 Phone Fight

This week HTC has announced their new Windows 8 Phone and the guys over at Engadget have come up with a chart to show you just how it will compare to its direct competitors from Samsung and Nokia. Its really too early to tell how Windows 8 phones will be accepted, but so far they seem to have some decent hardware to run on.

HTC's unveiled a pair of Windows Phone 8 devices that seem destined to square off against Nokia's similarly polycarbonated handsets. You may not be able to easily pick 'em out of a crowd, but there's plenty of differences on the inside, and let's be frank, that's where it counts. We've pitted the Windows Phone 8 flagships from HTC, Samsung and Nokia against each other to see which one's going to be getting your cash when it comes to renewal time, and Round One begins just as soon as you jump past the break... ding, ding, ding.


Motherboard Roundup

As we kick off this iPhone Friday, we've got a few motherboard reviews to share.  Enjoy!


Apple vs. Amazon: Who has the best future headquarters?

It must be a slow news day because this article over at GeekWire was good enough to make the front page news. Today the debate is which company has the best future headquarters, Apple or Amazon? Apple is going for the futuristic spaceship look, Amazon is going for the "iconic" look. Both are very interesting, but because this is the internet there can only be one winner.

It has been fun to see the plans come together for Amazon’s new three-block campus on the edge of downtown Seattle. The company’s architects this week took it up a notch when they showed the surprisingly cool color schemes that Amazon plans to add to the Seattle skyline (above).

I’m no architecture critic, but the word “iconic” keeps popping to mind. In an industry full of soulless suburban campuses, give Jeff Bezos & Co. credit for building this in the city, at least.
