Motorola just released a brief video that cryptically hints at a new wireless power solution the company may announce at CES 2012.

The short titled “Stay Unplugged with Motorola” simply shows a sad cartoon-faced AC adapter shedding a lone, mournful tear. Why could Mr. Power Cord be so glum? Perhaps it’s because his old handset friends have outgrown their relationship and no longer visit often. Apparently once Motorola’s gadget set upgraded to newfangled wireless charging technology, it’s been a dark, dark world, at least for AC Power man here.

No matter what sales numbers Apple or Verizon eventually boasts about, iPhone 4’s launch on the carrier cannot be called a resounding success — at least compared to others. Launch day got off with short customer lines, something Apple simply isn’t accustomed to or was prepared for. The Apple fan club of bloggers and journalists fed the frenzy, raising expectations about Day 1 on Verizon. There was fizzle instead of pop yesterday.

Twelve billion iBalls fall into Gizmodo’s lap

Twelve billion iBalls fall into Gizmodo's lap

What’s a mobile device prototype worth?

Depends on who you are. If you’re Apple, it’s priceless. When you tightly control every aspect of the product development process, anything that subverts the message is a potential risk to the brand. Loss of control to a company like Apple is unthinkable. If you’re Gizmodo, the answer is ,000 — which is the amount the tech blog reportedly paid to an unnamed individual who supposedly found the prototype of Apple’s upcoming fourth-generation iPhone in a California bar.

We segue into 2010 with rumors swirling around the biggest mega product announcement since the iPhone. If Apple’s mythical tablet device — the “iSlate,” if insiders and analysts are to be believed — is in fact announced sometime in January, Apple fans will once again dance in the streets before lining up in the middle of the night, wallets in hand, ready to buy into the latest must-have doodad from Cupertino.

H1N1, swine flu, Bill Maher, and U

H1N1, swine flu, Bill Maher, and U

Comedian/pundit/talk show host Bill Maher has reportedly tweeted that folks who get vaccinated against the new H1N1 (“swine”) flu are idiots. Medical wisdom in 140 characters? Or is Maher, the twit, the real idiot?

Before you get swept away in an anti-vaccine frenzy, you might want to consult what www.flu.gov has to say. That’s the US government’s official take on the imminent flu season, complete with characters from Sesame Street. There’s plenty of stuff for grown-ups too: what to do if you get flu-like symptoms, what pregnant women should know, places to get vaccinated against both seasonal flu and H1N1, and lots more.
