Hiptop3.com Forums

Tuesday, June 27th, 2006

So, since the hiptop.com forums are toast right now, we’ve added a few more sections to the forum over here. Jump in and go nuts. We won’t censor anything unless it’s harassment or would get us arrested. To start things off, we’ve started a thread titled “How I got my Sidekick 3” in anticipation for all the stories that will begin at midnight tonight, and also a poll to see just how many people are getting the Sidekick 3.

It’s Photoshop Time!

Friday, May 26th, 2006


After seeing this image, and reworking the layout for the site last night, we thought it would be good to have a fun little Photoshop contest. With the high res image as a source, send your creations to photoshop@hiptop3.com. We’ll post our favorites. 🙂

Faking the news

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

Ok, we know we’re not the only site out there reporting on the Sidekick 3 rumors. but at least we’re not making up news…
Sidekick3.blogspot.com has been posting various made-up stories, only to get pwned on each one. The best being a fake ebay listing for a Sidekick 3 from AOL member RWiLL40158.


We especially like how he has ” MS Paint” open with a doc called “ebay” in the screenshots. As if this didn’t need further debunking:
– Ebay user: hiptopdeals808 nor the auction # exist at ebay.com or ebay.ca.
Check out this auction Same price, same item location, same member join date, and same auction end time. Can you say photoshop source?
– The auction image shows the URL “ebay.com” but the cancelled page shows “Ebay.ca” logo.
– Notice the Auction Item info in the Title Bar on the auction page?

Edit: Updated the auction link, sorry, mis-pasted.

Call for leads
