Nintendo Wii

The good: Revolutionary controller design offers unique motion-sensitive gameplay options; built-in Wi-Fi delivers free online services and (eventually) gameplay; Virtual Console has major nostalgia appeal; compatible with all GameCube games and controllers; built-in SD slot for storage and photo viewing; includes Wii Sports game; most affordable of all next-gen systems.
The bad: Controller eats batteries and takes some time to get used to; lacks the advanced HD graphics and surround sound found on the Xbox 360 and the PS3; requires a wired receiver unit placed near the TV to interface with wireless controllers; can't play CDs or DVDs.
The bottom line: It lacks the graphical prowess and rich media features of the Xbox 360 and the PS3, but the Nintendo Wii's combination of unique motion-sensitive controllers and emphasis on fun gameplay make the ultra-affordable console hard to resist.

Google Calendar kicks some serious butt. Unfortunately, being a web application, it doesn't natively synchronize with mobile devices like Pocket PCs, Palm devices, or cell phones. If you want to do that, you'll need a 3rd-party application, like GooSync. GooSync is a little application that actually lives on your mobile device, and can synchronize to Google Calendar "over the air". This means that in the case of phones, it will connect to the internet and perform a synchronization, while Pocket PCs and Palm devices can use either a WiFi or phone data connection (if available), or the pass-through internet connection provided by ActiveSync or HotSync, respectively.

This concept is wonderful, and by many accounts works flawlessly. Unfortunately, after importing my massive Outlook calendar into Google Calendar, it turns out my Google Calendar account is somewhat of a challenge for synchronization tools. GooSync fails about 80% through the synchronization, but I'm not willing to pin that problem on them. I've also tried other applications that claim to be able to synchronize Google Calendar to tools like Outlook, and they fail as well.

Apple iMac

Apple iMac (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16GHz; 24-inch LCD; SuperDrive)
The good: Giant LCD makes the iMac a home video champ; updated specs stay competitive with the rest of the desktop PC field; expanded upgrade options available at the time of purchase.
The bad: Configurator upgrades are expensive; limited aftermarket upgradability means you won't be able to add a Blu-Ray or HD-DVD drive down the road; no media card reader.
The bottom line: Other vendors might offer more flexible configurations and better deals on components, and the specter of HD video looms darkly, but the 24-inch iMac's sprawling display and convincingly capable features should set most people's minds at ease. We highly recommend this new iMac as PC that doubles as a secondary home entertainment system.

O2 XDA Atom Exec

One of the key improvements made on the Atom Exec is the upgraded 520MHz Intel processor and 192MB of ROM. Hopefully, the faster speed and larger ROM address some of the complaints about sluggish operating speeds experienced by some users of the current Atom. The original Atom PDA-phone came with a 416MHz Intel processor and 128MB of ROM.

The Atom Exec is expected to sport similar dimensions (102 x 58 x 18.5mm; 140g) as the Atom, which should be a handy size for most mobile users. However, in place of the glossy casing will be a matte exterior--a move likely to go down well with many users since matte surfaces are usually more smudge-resistant than glossy finishes.

Other features expected on the Atom Exec include a 2-megapixel camera (with flash), FM radio, wireless LAN and Bluetooth connectivity.

Nokia launches four new handsets
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--At its annual Capital Market Days, Nokia revealed to the media four new handsets for its 2007 product lineup.
Three of them (Nokia 6086,6290 and 6300) are targeted at midrange users, while the 2626, an entry-level candy bar, will cater to consumers in the emerging markets.

According to a press statement from Kai Oistamo, Nokia's executive vice president and general manager for Mobile Phones: "These new products underscore our commitment to offer a range of mobile phones that give consumers a choice in selecting the right balance of technology and design to meet their lifestyle and budget."

The highlight at the launch was undoubtedly the Nokia 6300. Measuring just 13.1mm thin, the new candy bar is one of the first slim phone offerings in recent years from the Finnish company. More significantly, many industry observers see the 6300 as an indication of Nokia's decision to finally follow the thin phone trend.

The 6290, meanwhile, is touted as the company's first midrange Series 60 3G smart phone, while the 6086 is its latest Unlicensed Mobile Access (UMA) handset. UMA handsets allow users to switch seamlessly between GSM and wireless LAN for mobile service coverage. While information on the 2626 remains sketchy for now, the handset is expected to come in several colors and include an FM radio.
All four models are expected to ship in the first quarter of 2007. However, according to a Nokia spokesperson, the 6086 is unlikely to make its way to the Asia-Pacific region due to the lack of mobile operators supporting the UMA service. The good news, though, is that the 6086 is almost identical in design and features to the 6085 that was announced, except for the UMA connectivity.

YouTube takes videos to mobile phones

Video-sharing website YouTube announced its first foray into distributing video clips on mobile telephones through a tie-up with a mobile phone company.

YouTube said that from early December, a selection of its most popular videos would become available to US subscribers of Verizon Wireless's premium "V CAST" service.

"With the largest community for online video entertainment, YouTube's move into the mobile space will enable a new audience of mobile users to enjoy entertaining videos virtually whenever and now wherever they want," it said.

YouTube, which last month was bought by internet titan Google, has rapidly emerged as the web's hottest site for watching videos since its launch 18 months ago.

The company indicated that more mobile tie-ups were likely after the deal with Verizon, which is the largest US wireless operator in terms of revenues.

"People want to be entertained in a way that fits their individual lifestyle," YouTube co-founder and chief technology officer Steve Chen said in a statement.

"We will continue to roll out more exciting partnerships and features for the mobile user over the coming year," he said. (AFP)

Nokia N73 Music Edition
Its pure N73

And Now N73 Music Edition

The good: The Nokia N73 boasts a 3.2-megapixel camera with video-recording capabilities, an integrated music player, a vibrant screen, Bluetooth, and a speakerphone. The phone also had extra-long talktime, battery life, and decent call quality.
The bad: The Nokia N73's keypad is a bit cramped. Also, it lacks Wi-Fi and runs slowly when switching between apps or performing multimedia functions.
The bottom line: The Nokia N73 offers a high-quality camera phone plus some nice extras in a stylish package, but its sluggish performance keeps us from giving it higher praises.

O2 Orion

O2's clearly not done yet for the year. Having surprised us with the delectable Xda Atom and Xda Mini Pro PDA-phones, it has unveiled the Orion. This smart phone, however, bears an almost uncanny similarity to the Dopod 577W, from the design right down to the dimensions. Features-wise, it almost apes the Dopod, offering quadband network support, onboard Wi-Fi connectivity and Windows Mobile 5.0. So what's different? Unfortunately, at this early stage of the announcement, it's hard to tell. ...

LG Chocolate

The Korean chaebol has released two additional flavors to its popular Chocolate handset series, which cloth the new phones in Christmasy hues of red and green. Just too bad it's for the US market for now. No word from LG on whether these shades will make it to Asian stockings this year but, hey, if they don't, you can still ogle at the pictures below. Meanwhile, we'll content ourselves with Godivas.
