Remainders: Stuff We Didn't Post (And Why)

I have a splitting headache. There was so much real news today, mostly android-y, we happily skipped this junk: GM's Wi-Fi, Apple Store POS, Virgin/Helio, XBox Sky and a Blu-ray player only dumb people will buy. Dun dun DUN.

GM's offering in car internet for $US500 plus $US29 a month. Great! This is a stupid thing to get because of devices like the MiFi. Plus, do you really want to buy a GM? If you go American, go Ford. They have cool tech![Engadget]

Apple stores are ditching those clunky handheld point-of-sale computers—which are Windows run—for iPod touches that can do the same thing. There's no way to write this story up without making an unfair Microsoft joke, which isn't fair because those POS units have been a big part of why Apple stores have been easy to check out at.

Virgin erases Helio and the Ocean 2. But not before we erased the love and care we had in 2007 for the company last year. Remember how progressive they were? Were? [Mobile Crunch]

JVC's $US200 Blu-ray player does not stream media and does not cost less than the LG bd370 which does. And does not cost less than the PS3, which also plays games. Do not buy. [JVC]
