Bullz-Eye reviews the Nintendo 3DS

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, you’re well aware of Hollywood’s recent obsession with 3D… only, it’s not just Hollywood that’s obsessed. The video game industry has been eager to embrace this latest fad as well, with the Sony PlayStation 3 already offering several titles that are compatible with 3D-ready TVs. But if there’s been one steady complaint during this whole 3D craze, it’s that in order to take advantage of the technology, you have to wear a pair of clunky (and expensive) shutter glasses. That’s what makes the Nintendo 3DS so appealing, because it’s not only the first handheld device to offer 3D gaming, but also the first to deliver a completely glasses-free experience.

Though the system isn’t without its flaws, I was overall really impressed with what Nintendo has achieved with their latest handheld system. Head over to Bullz-Eye now to read my full review.


AT&T starts sending out tethering notices to jailbreakers


One of the big advantages to jailbreaking has been the ability to enable tethering without carrier support. That doesn’t mean the carrier is unaware of the way the phone is being used. In fact, AT&T has started sending text messages to customers who are tethering without the company’s tethering plan.

The message reads as follows:

“Did you know tethering your Smartphone to a computer requires a tethering plan? Pls call 888-860-6789 for details or visit att.com/dataplans.”

Some customers are also receiving emails about the usage, alerting customers that they will be automatically enrolled in the DataPro 4GB plan if they don’t get in touch with AT&T. From the email:

“If we don’t hear from you, we’ll plan to automatically enroll you into DataPro 4GB after March 27, 2011. The new plan – whether you sign up on your own or we automatically enroll you – will replace your current smartphone data plan, including if you are on an unlimited data plan. If you discontinue tethering, no changes to your current plan will be required.”

AT&T says the goal is fairness to customers. Yes, they would like to screw all of us equally.

Bullz-Eye reviews Orb Audio People’s Choice

Orb Audio review.

If your browsing history looks anything like my own – lots of tech and games – chances are you’ve seen ads for Orb Audio’s line of quality speakers. With such a radical design, I always wondered if they were just a gimmick. After listening to the People’s Choice set that Orb was kind enough to send me, I was pleasantly surprised. Despite its relatively low cost, Orb delivers sound quality I have yet to see matched by small speakers.

Bullz-Eye reviews the HTC Inspire

HTC Inspire release.

I was contacted a few weeks back with an offer to test out the HTC Inspire, an offer I gladly accepted considering I haven’t had a good chance to immerse myself in Android. I’ve been impressed with HTC hardware in the past and the Inspire was certainly no exception. It has a great screen, a snappy processor, and the 8-megapixel camera is really impressive.

For the full review, head over to our Bullz-Eye Gadgets channel. The long and short of things is that this is the first phone that’s made me think about switching off the iPhone for good.
