• Browse Del.icio.us Bookmarks Visually With FavThumbs

    While we’ve waited with bated breath for the release of Delicious 2.0 (Yahoo’s been teasing us for months), Ryan Sit, the creator of Swurl, a recently launched startup that offers a lifecasting aggregator for web activity, has been toying around with the Del.icio.us API to bring us FavThumbs. FavThumbs offers a visually-pleasing web application to view screen shots of your… Read More

  • MediaMax/TheLinkup Closes Its Doors

    After a tumultuous history including lost data, upset users, and seemly endless name changes, TheLinkup (aka MediaMax) has shut its doors. Users of the storage site will be unable to access their files after August 8th. The company has a long (and extremely confusing) history. In our last post on the site, Charlie Jackson, one of the company’s investors, left a comment explaining… Read More

  • CrunchGear's Dino Days: Hands on with Hasbro's Kota and Fisher Price's Ultra Dino

    These two beasts are for kids ages 3 and older. The Kota is obviously the bigger one – the kids can actually ride on him – and he’ll be available in September for more than your allowance ($300), so you can’t have one. The Fisher Price Dino ($140) is a little more action-packed, reminiscient of the Wowwee Roboraptor without the feasting on your guts part. Both of these… Read More

  • Before the App Store “Opens”, it has already made Apple $55,000

    Tucked away on the iPhone 2.0 version of Apple’s Application Store is a counter for the number of times that each application has been purchased . When this information is combined with an application’s price, and the uniform 30% that Apple pockets on each download, it is possible to know how much Apple is making from the App Store. As of 4PM (PST), that number hovers around $55,000. Read More

  • Webcaster ON24 Secures $8 million

  • Regular Joe Review: Nikon D60, Rebel XSi & the amateur photographer in you


    See how fun photography can be! This “review” or hands-on or whatever you want to call it is a little different than the typical “I give this an 8 out of 10!” Those are silly, useless, and serve no other purpose than to give companies copy for product packaging. Maybe. This is a new, laid back, informal, ”How well does it work?” work of art. I call it a… Read More

  • Nvidia Tries To Cover Up Defective GPUs

    It has been confirmed that all Nvidia G84 and G86 chips are defective. Analysts first believed that it was only the batch that HP received that that were bad, but other sources say that the G84 and G86 use the same ASIC across the board, meaning there will be a lot more defective GPU’s than originally expected. Part of the drama has also come from Nvidia’s unwillingness to admit… Read More

  • WordPress and TypePad Spawn Mobile Blogging

    http://v.wordpress.com/bMa9CH71/fmt_dvd Forgive us while we navel-gaze for a minute, but we were particularly pleased to learn that a mobile app for WordPress will debut in the iPhone store soon. The app will work with both WordPress.com blogs and on-premise installations of version 2.5.1 and newer. Its announcement comes just over a month after competitor TypePad showcased its iPhone app… Read More

  • Video Review: IOGEAR USB Net ShareStation

    Looking to share USB devices across your home network? Got $80? Then pick up the IOGEAR USB Net ShareStation. The product’s website says, “Users may not achieve optimum audio/video streaming performance when connecting to the USB Net ShareStation through a wireless Ethernet router,” but I loaded up a 1080p WMV file and streamed it via wireless just fine. You can hook up… Read More

  • Garmin's new GPS line: the Oregon, several flavors available

    These look pretty nice. Garmin’s new GPS line, dubbed Oregon, is all touchscreen (possibly troublesome for rugged button-lovers), kind of chubby, and comes in three basic flavors: The 200, which has only the base map and is missing some cool features like an altimeter and compass ($480) The 300, which has a worldwide map and those other things but no details or topos($530) The 400… Read More

  • iPhone 3G breakdown: improvements under the hood

    Thanks to the wonders of the international dateline, the 3G iPhone came out in New Zealand today. The guys from iFixit got their grubby little hands on one and took it apart. Once they popped the thing open they saw that Apple combined the logic and communication boards, making more room for the battery. They also didn’t solder the battery on this time, so that will make it a snap to… Read More

  • Activision Blizzard: Done and done


    Random Blizzard fan art Activision Blizzard is now really really real. Let’s all celebrate with some non-alcoholic beer and unsalted pretzels. Yeah, so the merger was approved earlier in the week, and now has passed all those shareholder votes and so forth. The new CEO of Activision Blizzard, Bobby Kotick, had these inspiring words for everyone except EA, which is still mired in… Read More

  • That Didn't Take Long…iPhone 2.0 OS Unlocked

    It has not even been officially released yet, and the iPhone 2.0 OS already has been unlocked. In contrast, the original iPhone OS took hackers a couple of months to unlock. But this time they got a head start. Gizmodo reports the iPhone Dev Team has been working on jailbreaking the phone since the beta version went out with the iPhone SDK. But does it really matter? While it’s… Read More

  • Good Old Games porting and selling awesome old DOS games


    Oh hell yes. I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. While sites like Abandonia and Home of the Underdogs have been incredibly good to my addiction to old-school DOS and Windows games, but more often than not it takes a lot of emulator tweaking, unofficial patching, and even command line magic to make those old things work. And along comes Good Old Games, my new lord and… Read More

  • Belkin GoStudio official

    The GoStudio, originally called the Podcast Studio, is now official. It has dual XLR/1/4″ inputs, two omnidirectional stereo mics, and a tripod mount. You can record directly to an iPod or connect it to your computer to create an extra sound card. We tested this thing’s older brother, the TuneStudio and came away quite impressed. If this bugger is anything like the TuneStudio… Read More

  • Seagate drops a 1.5TB Barracuda HDD


    Not too much to say about this other than yes, it’s big. 7200RPM, 3.5 inches, and a lot of space for all your legitimate and tasteful media. If you’re eco-conscious, however, it’s probably better to go with their new line of 1TB drives, which use much less power. Or, if you’re rich, a few Memoright arrays are the way to go. Read More

  • Facebook's iPhone App (Almost) Replaces My Contacts List

    All of us iPhone fanatics are just getting our hands on the new apps, but I’ve already found one that I’m sure to consider indispensable within the next few months: Facebook’s new app. Why is it so compelling? Because it almost eliminates the need to maintain a separate contacts list on my phone. While Facebook’s web app for the iPhone was cool enough, the native… Read More

  • Kodak Theatre HD Player

    Kodak didn’t just announce a tiny little video camera last night. They also released an interesting Wi-Fi-enabled media player that can drag photos off of your memory cards and display them on your HD TV and then upload the images straight to a PC or Kodak Gallery. It will cost $299 and has a Wii-like remote that lets you browse photos and even listen to streaming audio over the Internet. Read More

  • Mobile FireFox beta before the end of the year


    Here we are again mentioning the iPhone, but this time, blame Mozilla. The open source loving FireFox creators say they are inspired by the full mobile Web experience of Safari and the iPhone, and that they hope to have an alpha release of a mobile version of FireFox by summer, with the possibility of a beta release before the end of the year. Started in October 2007, Mozilla’s… Read More

  • Comcast and Vonage, new best friends


    Comcast and Vonage have promised to never fight again and to work together to balance “network congestion” with “ensuring that over-the-top VoIP services like Vonage work well for consumers.” Wow, does that mean Comcast is promising to stop blocking services like Vonage from running on its network? How sweet! Vonage Chief Technology Officer Louis Mamakos said in a… Read More

I just did a search on Craigslist New York and found a bunch of phones in the $150-$300 range. Grab a cheap one, jailbreak it/upgrade to 2.0… Read More
