Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Features, Hot Deals, Software,

‘s next major operating system release, hits stores and doorsteps this Friday, August 28th. That’s at least 4 days earlier than even Apple estimated, as the expectation all along has been that Snow Leopard would see a September release. On Monday, the online Apple Store went down briefly, and when it came back up, Snow Leopard was center stage, announcing a delivery date of August 28th to customers who pre-order, so they’d get it the same day that it hit stores. If you haven’t yet, Amazon has got some nice discounts:

So, how about you? Did you pre-order Snow Leopard? Are you excited about it? Is it no big deal? Let us know, we wanna hear you.

Mainstream Media Circles Wagons Around Obama

Posted by Sal Traina Categories: Elections, Media,

No matter who you’re voting for in this year’s election, you should be able to trust journalists, and the news they’re reporting to you. Almost 70 percent of people polled think the media is trying to help Barack Obama win. Here’s another example of media bias.

An AP report on AOL wrote Sarah Palin Says Obama Pals With Terrorist.  The article goes on to say, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin on Saturday accused Presidential candidate Barack Obama of “palling around with terrorists” because of an old association with a former ‘60s radical, stepping up an effort to portray Barack Obama as unacceptable to American voters.

Reality TV Awards Poll

Amazing Race 12

AOL recently polled over 1.3 million readers to find out what they love and hate most about reality television.

While most of the responses were entirely predictable (Best Villain: Simon Cowell), I must say there were a few winners I didn’t see coming. (Is host really worse than Julie Chen?)

Here are just some of the top vote-getters in this year’s poll:

Poll: How did your iPhone 3G launch day purchase go?

We already told you about our crazy iPhone 3G launch day purchase fiasco, but now we wanna hear from you guys. Was what we experienced accurate? Did you just end up flying through purchase and activation, with no problems at all? Or was your experience more like ours, where things seemed to go wrong at every turn? Let us know!


Poll: iPhone 3G - black or white?

So, now that we’ve cleared up the iPhone 3G price confusion (we think), we are curious what you guys will be picking up once the device is unleashed. Apple has moved away from the aluminum-looking backing, instead opting for a glossy black finish on the 8GB . However, if you opt for the 16GB model, you get a choice between glossy black and glossy white. What say you?
