Hey T-Mobile, AT&T Has a 3G Network, 80% of it HSPA+

HSPA, where have I heard that before? Oh yes, it was talked about when 3G technologies were new and upcoming and improving and developing and all that good stuff. Now, we have HSPA+, which is 2.5x faster than the former HSPA network. To summarize, both of these networks are third generation technology. With me so far? Good.

Where am I going with this? Follow me after the break to find out!

Microsoft Decided Kinect Is Open And Therefore Not Hacked

Last week Microsoft talked about Kinect not being hacked by NUI Group, an open-source conglomeration of of developers and programmers, but merely that they wrote "drivers" allowing the device to be used on different platforms. None of that has changed but this week they are doing flip-flopping on some other issues concerning their intentions with Kinect.

To find out more about Microsoft's recent j/k, lol, we didn't mean it. Hit the break.

WinPho 7 Devices for Verizon for the Holidays?

WinPho 7 Devices for Verizon for the Holidays?

Microsoft's been on a Tweet craze lately. After announcing that the 'Series' from 'Windows Phone 7 Series' will be dropped, they dropped an announcement on their Twitter saying Verizon customers should expect WinPho 7 devices for the holidays with more coming in 2011.

#WP7 devices will be rolling into Verizon stores this holiday season and more will arrive in early 2011!

Since then, they have made another announcement saying,

Verizon is a valued partner and we look forward to seeing Windows Phone 7 devices in their stores in 2011.

Hmm. Those sound oddly similar but oddly different at the same time. The original Tweet hasn't been pulled but this does raise yet another question with what Microsoft plans to do with WinPho 7. I'd love to see a CDMA WinPho 7 device on Sprint, though!

Hulu Plus Slashes Its Monthly Price, for Real This Time

I know, I told you weeks ago about a possible price cut for Hulu Plus and after reading the press release last week and seeing that it was still $9.99/month, I informed you otherwise. Well, for the first time in a long time, one of our rumors turned out to be correct as this week Hulu Plus announced it was out, available and less than $10/month. That's right, you can now have the awesome that is Hulu Plus for only $7.99/month.
