  • IRL: Clocks for Mac, Pong Research iPhone 5 case and the BlackBerry Z10
    Welcome to IRL, an ongoing feature where we talk about the gadgets, apps and toys we’re using in real life and take a second look at products that already got the formal review treatment.

    Is saying you need to keep track of six timezones a humblebrag? Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but either way, don’t expect an apology from Mr. Darren Murph — the man is positively giddy about his new $2 Clocks app. You know who else won’t be issuing any apologies? Jon Fingas, our resident Canadian smartphone nerd, who says the BlackBerry Z10 isn’t half bad.

  • Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello resigns, Larry Probst appointed Executive Chairman (update)

    Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello resigns, Larry Probst appointed Executive ChairmanElectronic Arts has had a rough go of it lately due to the launch difficulties of Sim City. Today, TechCrunch reports that the company is changing its leadership at the top, with CEO John Riccitiello submitting his letter of resignation to the company and stating he will be stepping down on March 30th. Larry Probst, the current Chairman of the Board for EA and CEO of the company before Riccitiello, has been appointed Executive Chairman effective immediately. Probst will lead EA while the board searches for a permanent CEO.

    Update: The Wall Street Journal got ahold of Riccitiello’s internal resignation letter to the game publisher’s staff, as well as his letter to Larry Probst. We’ve added both below the break.

  • T-Mobile planning March 26th press event, hints at strategy change

    T-Mobile planning March 26th press event, hints at strategy change

    It’s been a slow news day for most of the tech industry, but it’s been a helluva Monday for T-Mobile. First the carrier announced expansion plans for its fledgling LTE network, and said that the Galaxy Note II would be getting an over-the-air update allowing it to take advantage of T-Mo’s new 4G speeds. Now, Big Magenta is planning a press event for March 26th in New York City, reports AllThingsD. As you can see, the invite promises the wireless operator will no longer be acting like one, which makes us think a splashy product launch isn’t in the cards. Given the teaser, we have to wonder if T-Mo is finally ready to elaborate on its plan to offer Value plans only, under which customers pay for their phones outright in exchange for lower monthly fees (and no contracts, of course). If we were betting types, that’s where we’d be putting our money, but it’ll be another eight days before we know for sure.
