BlackBerry’s ugly leaked slider phone —supposedly dubbed the Talladega—might be released next month, if Engadget’s translation of a Korean interview with the CEO of a RIM supplier is anything to go by. Being a BlackBerry user myself, I can’t help but feel a bit dismayed by the pictures that we’ve seen of it…though maybe I’m finding it difficult to care about anything other than that leaked Magnum we saw a few months back .

South Korea Testing "Recharging Roads" For Its Public Transport [Transport]

South Korea has overhauled its public transport network with recharging roads , where the vehicles use power from buried electric strips in the road. It was invented at the University of California, before South Korea adopted it for an amusement park. The system is being tested at an amusement park in Seoul, but if all goes well, the country hopes to expand it to the whole city’s bus route—helping minimize unsightly overhead power lines and obviously doing a good turn for the environment. Dubbed the Online Electric Vehicle system, or OLEV, the magnetic electrical charging strips are buried in four different areas along the 2.2km bus route, with the buses sucking power which can be used to drive or just filling up the battery storage

Sony’s newest catchphrase, “make.believe,” is a fitting reminder that Sony ads make no sense. Laptops take flight, PlayStations become monsters, and pitchmen state plainly that Sony TVs make you better at playing sports. Most of all—look! Play-doh bunnies! Back when Sony had only electronics to sell, they sold them like no other —to borrow a more sensible slogan that the company recently retired.

I’ve successfully removed my Ultimate Ears MetroFi 220 earphones thousands of times in the few months I’ve had them. Today, however, I botched the operation. The whole thing transpired at the Gizmodo office in New York City this afternoon. Right when I removed my earphones I knew something was wrong.
