A lot of people are still waiting, patiently or not, for their new HTC Incredibles to show up at their Verizon stores or at their front doors and still haven't received them due to the AMOLED screen shortage plaguing a lot of the new high end phones that are using them. Verizon has reportedly begun sending letters to these customers apologizing for the delay and kicking them a little bonus; a $25 USD Verizon gift card. This is a nice little gesture by the company who still doesn't have a solid date on more shipments coming; advising a possible additional seven business day delay to their previous receipt date. At least you'll be able to shopping for a case or car charger while you wait.
Amazon has started taking preorders for their new and improved Kindle e-reader, known as the Kindle DX. People that have been looking forward to this device will also appreciate the serious price cut that has been announced as well; down from the original $489 USD to $379.
This is just one of the many price drops the e-reader market has seen as they try to stay viable in a tablet encrazed market. The Kindle DX boasts 50% better contrast than the previous Kindle for easier reading, a 9.7" screen, 3G Wireless connectivity, text to speech, and a battery that can go up to two weeks when using the Kindle as a reader only device.
Yahoo! has announced an Android app for Messenger and email as well as a search function for your phone's home screen. The apps do pretty much exactly what you're used to with few surprises: the Mail app lets you organize, check, and send email from your Yahoo! account, the Messenger app allows you to use Yahoo! IM over your phone to send instant messages or SMS if you live in a country that supports it, and the Search widget lets you use Yahoo! search functions by either typing or by voice.

It's easier than most of us want to admit to break the screen on a netbook. If you use your netbook outdoors a lot you have probably noticed that the screen is hard to read as well.
If you are tired of straining to read you netbook or just want a screen easier to read in sunlight, the Pixel Qi display is now available as a DIY product. The screen will fit most 10.1-inch netbooks.
The Syabas PopBox was on display back during CES and the thing looked pretty darn cool. If you were among the many that were eagerly waiting for it to launch so you could buy, we have a bit of bad news for you.
The thing was up for preorder back in April at Amazon and now we hear that the PopBox has been delayed until July 23. Apparently, the culprit is the software, not the firmware for the device.
I will admit that there was nothing that PlayStation Plus offered that I wanted to buy. I know that many gamers are very excited about the service though.
What I was excited about was Hulu Plus on the PS3; I have wanted to watch Hulu on my big screen for a while now. Hulu Plus will land on the PS3 July 3 and apparently, PlayStation Plus will be required to use Hulu Plus.
Cisco is mostly know for all the networking gear that it offers in the enterprise and other markets. It also has some interesting enterprise gear for video conferences. On the consumer front, the company owns the Flip camcorder line.
The Flip cameras are small and cheap camcorders designed to upload video to YouTube and other sharing sites. Cisco's Martin De Beer has talked to Computerworld and said that a Flip camcorder with WiFi built-in is in the works.
