The long awaited images of BlackBerry Kickstart

BlackBerry Kickstart clamshell

The Boy Genius is showing images of the upcoming BlackBerry Kickstart. It comes in a clamshell, has a Pearl-esque keyboard, and apparently utilizes both an internal and LCD screen. Read the full article.

Depends on how you look at it. To me is either a BlackBerry that looks like a phone or a phone with BlackBerry functions. Anyhow my Nokia 5310 XpressMusic looks better, you agree?

Mile-High Skyscrapers and Floating Cities That Never Were

Wired.com has compiled a portfolio of “promised skylines we never got to see — and a few that may yet come to be — as seen from the imagined eyes of those who live there.” The picture above is Frank Lloyd Wright’s “This Illinois”, which was supposed to shoot 5,278 feet above Chicago. Other “alternate reality architectures” include

Karl Lagerfeld Appearing in Grand Theft Auto

It’s just been announced that the designer/photographer will be playing a role in the newest installment of Grand Theft Auto, where he’ll DJ on air at the game’s K109 The Studio station.

According to WWD “Players can pick from multiple radio stations for the soundtrack, ranging from licensed songs to new ones. Lagerfeld picked his favorite electronica and dance music and peppered the selection with some of his rapid-fire commentary. ‘They had written a politically incorrect dialogue,’ the designer said. ‘I loved it, [particularly] in a time when everybody wants to be so politically correct when they talk.’ He didn’t have to dig too deep to find his music selection. ‘Music is part of the life of fashion, too,’ he said. ‘Through the famous sound stylist Michel Gaubert, I’m very much ‘au courant’ and know what’s going on.'”

Voice-enabled mobile search: YAHOO!

yahoo mobile phone voice enabled

Information Week just published an article on Yahoo adding voice-enabled search on its mobile platform, called OneSearch 2.0, which it plans to roll out to manufacturers beginning this summer. According to the article, “To access the voice service, a person would only have to push the call button on the phone and say a word or phrase to Yahoo’s automated service to get results shipped to the phone. During the demo, saying ‘British Airways 287’ got arrival times, ‘March Madness’ got a list of scores for games played during the college basketball tournament, and ‘3600 Las Vegas Boulevard’ led to a street map and directions.”

But again, we all know how the computers deal with voices and pronunciation. Watch the video below on automated phone sex and you’ll know what I mean.
