    Dumbstruck Lets You Send A Message And Capture The Reaction

    Dumbstruck, an Albany, NY based startup from Michael Tanski and Peter Allegretti, has a different take on video messaging. The app allows you to capture moments in video and send them to specific contacts. When that contact opens your message, it shows the clip and records their reaction on the front facing camera. It then sends the reaction shot back to the person who sent the original… Read More

    Yahoo! Becomes Exclusive Partner Of 49ers Online Content

    I get as excited as anyone thinking about the upcoming 49ers season. Quite a bit has happened since we were 5 years from winning the Super Bowl. The stadium was branded with the Levi’s logo, we got Anquan Boldin from the Ravens for pretty much nothing, and Michael Crabtree suffered a hefty injury. Yahoo!, while on a purchasing spree of startups, decided to align themselves with… Read More

    Lucas And Spielberg Predict “Massive Implosion” Of Hollywood Caused By Tech Industry

    George Lucas and Steven Spielberg aren’t so bullish on the future of the film industry. At a talk at USC, the pair agreed that it’s on track to have a “massive implosion”. At the core of their argument: there just isn’t enough time in the day for consumers to support all the films released in theaters. Films are competing with all the content and options that… Read More

    CERN Scientist Talks About Higgs Boson, Particle Colliders And End Of The World

    Earlier this month, scientists from CERN announced that they had found the theoretical particle called the Higgs boson. The entire world knew they found it, but not many people actually knew what the Higgs is, or how it’s discovered. Turns out it’s a pretty difficult thing to do. First, you need a really, really big machine called a particle accelerator. That machine shoots streams… Read More

    Students Show Off Their Solutions To World Problems At Google Science Fair

    What were you doing when you were 14? I’m willing to be it’s a little different that what the students at the Google Science Fair are working on. Google brought 15 of the smartest 13 – 18 year old students from all over the world together, each working on a unique solution to a very big problem. One story in particular comes out of Africa, where two 14 year old boys are… Read More

    iTV Might Be Awesome, But It’s Not What We Really Want

    Apple’s iTV is reportedly in the labs of Canadian cable service providers Rogers Communications and Bell Canada right now. This is exciting news (it is real!), but it’s a bummer for those of us who were hoping that Apple was planning on disrupting the cable television business. If Apple is letting the cable companies play with its new toy, then they’re probably in the market… Read More
