  • Addappt goes public, gives iOS users group contact control and messaging

    Addappt goes public, gives iOS users group contacts and messaging

    While Addappt has been teasing painless contact syncing between iOS-using friends and colleagues since its December launch, its invitation-only nature has kept most of us on the sidelines. It may be time to try Addappt now that an update opens the doors to the public. On top of widening the app’s audience for its update once, share everywhere approach, the 1.3 release brings group management that easily lets us lump coworkers or social circles together. Messaging is appropriately easier as well — it’s possible to quickly text or email everyone in a given group, including the option to share more photos at once than the five that iOS usually allows. A port to Android isn’t yet on the cards, but iPhone and iPod touch owners tired of missing phone number changes can give Addappt a whirl today.

    3BaysGSA Putt a Bluetooth golf gadget that puts eyes in your putter hands on

    Motion sensor-based golf devices are all the rage these days, but they mostly target the full swing. Can such electronics be accurate enough to measure a much smaller stroke, namely the all-important putt? Since golf season’s nearly here, we decided to find out with the Putt from 3BaysGSA, a tiny, lightweight device that fits in the handle of a putter and relays stroke information via Bluetooth to an Android or iOS device. As Engadget’s resident golf nut, yours truly put the device through its paces both objectively and in a less-than-formal way to see whether it could accurately track a stroke. Will it help you lift your putter in victory, or make you wrap it around a tree? Hit the break to see how we did.

  • Potential Dell bidding war afoot as Blackstone Group and Carl Icahn reportedly making offers

    Potential Dell bidding war afoot as Blackstone Group and Carl Ichan reportedly making offers

    Thought that Dell buy out was a done deal? Well, the Blackstone Group and investor Carl Icahn clearly don’t think so, with the Wall Street Journal reporting that both have contacted the committee of Dell’s board just before Friday’s shutoff deadline. The would-be bidders are reported to be working on their actual offer amounts, and in the process buying them four more days thinking time. Reuters reports that Blackstone’s tentative offer is already in, according to sources, but at this time the company is yet to comment. Despite a recent slump in profits, Michael Dell surprised many when he announced his intention to buy back the eponymous firm in a deal with Microsoft for $24.4 billion. So, if the founder thought he had the keys to the old estate back, he might just have to wait a little longer.
