Apple TV's diminutive remote may be stylish, but it doesn't make it easy to search for movies to watch. But some sleuthing into iOS 5's code has revealed that such pecking could become less necessary, as it appears that support for Bluetooth devices is coming to the Apple TV with the latest update to its software.

I have tried a number of Bluetooth headsets over the years and my favorite that I have been using for the last couple has been the second generation Jawbone. For the last few days I have been testing the latest generation device from Aliph that was announced today, the Jawbone ICON. The Jawbone ICON takes Aliph's advanced headset technology and adds in a software platform to further their vision for a wearable computing platform. The ICON is available now for $99.99 in six different personalities and as you will read about in my review below, Aliph brings you a superior headset all the way from the packaging materials to the details on the headset. Check out my image gallery for photos of the Aliph Jawbone ICON.
Imagine a completely customizable robot with selectable software options. Buy one component, and it will take care of your lawn. Buy another one and it will clean your toilets. With a third one, it will pick up UPS or FedEx deliveries on your porch. If you are taking some vacation, another piece of software will transform this robot into a personal guard. Prototypes of such a revolutionary robot, dubbed AgBot, have been developed by Louisiana State University (LSU). 'It is solar-powered and can move as fast as six miles per hour for a minimum time span of four hours. With artificial intelligence, Bluetooth, and advanced GPS systems, the AgBot is a problem-solving robot.' According to the LSU team, you might see a commercial version of this robot in about five years. Read more...

The ASUS P750 may be chunky, but it packs in a huge array of features. Combined with an equally impressive software bundle, the result is an excellent multifunction handheld that should appeal to a wide range of mobile professionals.
In recent years, we've started to use our cellphones not only for placing calls or exchanging messages. Now, we take pictures, read our e-mails, listen to music or watch TV. But, according to New Scientist, UK researchers are going further with a prototype software that turns your cellphone into a 3-D mouse. The phone is connected to your computer via Bluetooth. And you control the image on the screen by rotating or moving your phone. As says one of the researchers, "it feels like a much more natural way to interact and exchange data." The technology might first be used in shopping malls to buy movie tickets or to interact with advertising displays. But read more...

I have been using a Windows Mobile Smartphone (the T-Mobile Dash and then Shadow) or a Nokia N95-1 as my main device for the last year and was getting along just fine. A few years ago when I first started using converged devices, I was using Phone Edition devices like the MDA II and i-mate JAM. As a power user, the touch screen devices give you more options in terms of functionality and software, but I haven't found one that I really wanted to carry with me all day long due to the size or performance. I also thought I needed a device with everything, but the kitchen sink thrown in. However, after using the HTC Touch Dual for a couple of weeks (with no WiFi or US 3G support) I discovered that I rarely need to use some of the wireless options and can get 90% done what I want with a simple wireless data connection and solid Bluetooth stack.
Nokia announced a new enterprise focused smartphone today, the Nokia E51, that joins the E90, E61i, and E65 devices. The Nokia E51 looks like an update for the E50 device as it offers users a slim and stylish design for the business professional. The E51 includes integrated Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi (for VoIP calling), a 2 megapixel camera, HSDPA, 130 MB of user accessible storage along with a microSD card slot, and S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1. It also includes software for the enterprise user, including the Nokia Office Tools 2.0 that includes Nokia Team Suite, In-device Search, Quickoffice, Macromedia PDF reader, Zip manager, File manager, and Active Notes.
Nokia issued a press release announcing that the long-anticipated Nokia N95 is finally shipping to select countries in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Unfortunately, there is no word or speculation on a U.S. release so I'll have to look to a U.S. importer to get one for myself. Rafe and Steve posted some thoughts on unboxing a production Nokia N95 and the box is reminiscient of an Apple designed package.The Nokia N95 multimedia computer (Nokia's term for these high end Nseries devices) sports a high speed 3G radio, integrated Bluetooth 2.0 and 802.11 b/g WiFi radios, 160MB internal memory, large 2.6 inch QVGA display, 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss optics and video capability up to 30 fps at VGA (640x480) resolution, FM radio, integrated GPS radio with Nokia Maps software, standard 3.5 mm headphone jack, and S60 3rd Edition operating system. It has a cool dual slider display to reveal a phone keypad in one direction and multimedia buttons in the other direction. The device is very similar in size to the Nokia N80 and packs quite a bit into a small package.

The Mio A701 is a decent GSM/GPRS/GPS handheld with some nice features, although it lacks Wi-Fi. We aren’t the biggest fans of Mio Map, but you can buy this device without the navigation software and install another application.
The hardware design of this Windows Mobile 5.0 handheld with built-in GPS is up to Fujitsu Siemens’ usual high standard. We just hope that the glitches with the navigation system are swiftly ironed out.
Available standalone or with a bundled GPS receiver and navigation software, the Mio 336 could be worth considering if you're on a tight budget.
