  • (Fly or Die) HTC One S

    Fly Or Die: HTC One S

    The One S is the middle child in HTC’s new line of hero devices, not quite as badass as the One X, but a bit bigger than baby brother One V. As is the case with any middle child, it’s a bit easy to overlook. But John and I decided to give it some attention anyway, and like usual, we didn’t find much common ground. Read More

  • Is T-Mobile Getting The Samsung Galaxy Note?

    Is T-Mobile Getting The Samsung Galaxy Note?

    Even though I think it’s way too big for the average human, Samsung’s Galaxy Note is doing quite well since its debut in January at CES. In fact, Samsung has sold 5 million units of the Galaxy Note thus far, which comes out to about 1 million Notes sold per month. But could it be selling better? Possibly. The phablet is only available at AT&T with a rather steep $299 price… Read More

  • HTC One S Review: Head-To-Head With The One X And iPhone 4S

    HTC One S Review: Head-To-Head With The One X And iPhone 4S

    I’ve been fiddling around with the HTC One S for a few days now, and I have to say it’s stolen a little piece of my heart. The hardware is just about perfect, with a 4.3-inch qHD display and a slender aluminum unibody shell, and software like HTC’s Sense 4 overlay and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich only sweeten the deal. But, as per usual, there’s plenty to consider… Read More

  • Guide to NY Tech Day 2012's Startups

    NY Tech Day: “Justify Your Startup’s Existence In 20 Seconds”

    The tech scene in NY is growing at such a rapid pace it kind of blows my mind. New York Tech Day was a glowing example of that growth, with 160 startups pitching and over 3,500 attendees. We couldn’t help but attend ourselves, and what we saw was more than exciting. Read More

  • Got Pot? Leafly Can Help

    Got Pot? Leafly Can Help

    During my daily combing of tech news feeds/breaks to learn more about the wide world of drugs, I stumbled upon this interesting little service called Leafly. Essentially, you hop on over to Leafly.com to do one of two things: find local dispensaries or explore various strains of the Mary Jane. But the set-up is quite nice, and with Marijuana legalization becoming a matter of when and not if… Read More

  • Equally Creepy And Creative, Cheek’d Is Online Dating In Reverse

    Equally Creepy And Creative, Cheek’d Is Online Dating In Reverse

    I’ve covered a few online dating services in my day, but this one has got to be the most creative. It’s called Cheek’d, and I’d categorize it as a place where business cards meets picking up prospective boyfriends/girlfriends/one-night stands. Here’s how it works: you go over to the Cheek’d website, at which point you take a couple minutes to fill out… Read More

  • AT&T Labs Walk-Through

    Connected Cars And Bio-Acoustical Transmission: A Peek Into AT&T’s Research Lab

    Yesterday, I was lucky enough to venture into the depths of AT&T’s New York offices and check out the Research Lab. In essence, AT&T has about a zillion APIs that relate to cloud computing, navigation, translation, and a plethora of other fun technology, and its researchers then take those platforms and create really interesting products.

  • This Speaker Dock Is Made Entirely Of Bamboo, No Electricity Required

    This Speaker Dock Is Made Entirely Of Bamboo, No Electricity Required

    I try my best to stay away from writing about speaker docks and phone cases. In my experience, they’re all the same, save for a few minor tweaks here and there. But today I stumbled upon a pretty novel little iPhone speaker dock that just so happens to be 100 percent green and uses no electricity whatsoever. You’re intrigued. I can feel it. Read More

  • AT&T Labs Announces the Launch of Watson API

    AT&T’s AVP Of Technical Research Explains The New Watson Speech API

    It was only yesterday that AT&T announced its Watson Speech API, meant to let developers of any kind provide products with real-time translation baked right in. I got the chance to speak with Mazin Gilbert, AT&T’s AVP of Technical Research, about what this could mean over the next few months and years, and it sounds like useful, seamless translation might finally be in the pipeline.

  • T-Mobile Announces The HTC One S: $199 On-Contract On April 25 (Hands-On)

    T-Mobile Announces The HTC One S: $199 On-Contract On April 25 (Hands-On)

    It’s only been a few short hours since AT&T announced the availability of HTC’s mamma-jamma One X smartphone, but there may be a few more tricks coming out of HTC’s sleeve before the day is done. For example, T-Mobile just sent over a bit of news regarding the One S, namely that it will launch on April 25 for $199.99 on-contract after a $50 mail-in-rebate. We first… Read More

  • Spotify Details New Global Partnership With Coca-Cola

    Spotify Details New Global Partnership With Coca-Cola

    Right now I’m sitting in a room covered in Spotify and Coca-Cola logos. That’s because Spotify and Coke have just announced a global partnership to help both brands expand their ubiquity. The folks at Coke explained that music has always been a huge part of Coke’s marketing efforts, going all the way back to a series of ads featuring Ray Charles nearly 50 years ago. That… Read More

  • Calling All Startups: TechCrunch New York Just Posted Office Hours

    Calling All Startups: TechCrunch New York Just Posted Office Hours

    The other day, I had the idea to open up Office Hours here in New York. And when I say “I had the idea,” I mean that I stole it from Mike Butcher who had the brilliant plan to do the same thing in Europe. There’s no reason to get all long-winded, so I’ll just hit you with the specs. Read More

  • Coffee Meets Bagel Turns Online Dating Into A Daily “Deal”

    Coffee Meets Bagel Turns Online Dating Into A Daily “Deal”

    Technology is all about convenience. At least, that’s where it’s headed. I can now ask someone to run across the city and pick up a package for me on Zaarly (which I did), Songza chooses my music playlists for me, and I can literally push a button and ask my phone where the nearest burger joint is (even if she never quite understands me). It’s incredible. And now that… Read More

  • Who Wants To Come To The TechCrunch Mini Meet-Up In NYC? UPDATED TIME

    Who Wants To Come To The TechCrunch Mini Meet-Up In NYC? UPDATED TIME

    So, I’ve just recuperated from our VA mini meet-up tour, during which John and I visited DC, Norfolk, and Richmond in an attempt to find startup gems in unexpected corners of the country. This time we’re bringing things a little bit closer to home. That’s right New Yawkers: get your pitch in order, your demo up to snuff, and throw on your schmoozing hat! We’re having… Read More

  • Is The Lumia 900 Headed To T-Mobile?

    Is The Lumia 900 Headed To T-Mobile?

    The Lumia 900 is an excellent handset, whether or not European carriers like it. But it’s hard to imagine how Nokia and Microsoft plan to achieve a high level of penetration with the phone on a single carrier (AT&T). Luckily for the partnership, it would seem as though T-Mobile will be getting the Lumia 900 over the course of the summer as well. Read More

  • European Carriers Aren’t Digging Nokia’s Lumia Line

    European Carriers Aren’t Digging Nokia’s Lumia Line

    Nokia hasn’t had the best year. Of course, the launch of the Lumia line has been refreshing, as Nokia’s much-anticipated Windows Powered offerings are finally out in the world, trying to woo owners like neon-colored puppies in a pet shop window. The only problem is that four of the major wireless operators in Europe have deemed Nokia’s WP phones “not good enough to… Read More

  • Motorola Employee Takes A Picture Of His Desk, Possibly Confirms Existence Of Droid Razr HD

    Motorola Employee Takes A Picture Of His Desk, Possibly Confirms Existence Of Droid Razr HD

    It would appear that Motorola is putting even more of an effort into its resurrected Razr line. Just a few months after the hotly anticipated Droid Razr stepped onto the scene, Motorola offered the same unit with an upgraded battery, making the Droid Razr Maxx my new favorite Android phone with an 8+ hour battery life (and that’s under extreme duress). Today, just a few months after… Read More

  • Nokia Lumia 900 Review: This One’s A No-Brainer

    Nokia Lumia 900 Review: This One’s A No-Brainer

    Guys, this one’s such a no brainer that I shouldn’t even have to lay it all out. But I will. The Nokia Lumia 900 is an excellent handset, comes packed with a fresh new operating system in the form of Windows Phone 7.5 Mango, and thanks to a nifty AT&T bill credit from Nokia, you can essentially get this $100 LTE-equipped phone for free until the 21st. Repeat: for free. Like I… Read More

  • I’ve Finally Found The Perfect iPhone Case: The Cygnett Icon

    I’ve Finally Found The Perfect iPhone Case: The Cygnett Icon

    One of the best things about the iPhone is its design. It’s beautiful — slim, sleek, and finished in piano black with a hint of brushed aluminum. Sometimes I just stare at it. But there’s a big problem: the iPhone is less than durable. It loses in almost every drop test, and will shatter the first time it slips out of your hands. The answer of course is a great case, but most… Read More

  • How The Pebble Smart Watch Hit $2 Million On Kickstarter [Q&A]

    How The Pebble Smart Watch Hit $2 Million On Kickstarter [Q&A]

    The Pebble smart watch – a clever little device that connects to your iPhone or Android device and, oddly enough, tells the time – was a twinkle in the eye of founder Eric Migicovsky just a few weeks ago. Now the product has reached $2 million in funding. And if that weren’t enough, InPulse, the company that makes the Pebble, only ever asked for $100,000 over the course of… Read More
