    Harvest Co-Founder: “Solve A Real Pain Point, And Don’t Be Afraid To Charge For It” [TCTV]

    Right now the enterprise software space is growing rapidly, but so are the number of users who need it, especially freelancers, independent contractors, consultants, and developers. That said, companies who provide services like time-tracking need to evolve in order to meet the growing demands of their users. I sat down with Danny Wen, co-founder of time-tracking service Harvest, who knows… Read More

    Nokia Lumia 900 Won’t Hit AT&T Shelves Until April 22

    We’d heard a while back that the long-awaited Windows Phone-powered Lumia 900 would show up on AT&T’s shelves on March 18. However, around the time that this rumored launch date leaked, the Lumia 900 had yet to go through its testing in the technical acceptance process. Turns out, that may be the reason BGR is now reporting that the Lumia 900 launch has been delayed to April 22. Read More

  • Pinterest Now Generates More Referral Traffic Than Twitter: Study

    Pinterest Now Generates More Referral Traffic Than Twitter: Study

    This is big. A new study by online sharing tool Shareaholic has found that Pinterest now drives more referral traffic than Twitter. Again, when it comes to referral traffic, Pinterest > Twitter. The data is based on analytics from 200,000 publishers which reach approximately 270 million unique visitors a month. Read More

  • These Are The New iPad LTE Data Plans

    These Are The New iPad LTE Data Plans

    Many of us have been confused over the past 24 hours about what exactly is happening with the new iPad data plans. First Apple screwed up and said AT&T would offer 2GB for $30 instead of 3GB, and one of Verizon’s plans was missing altogether from the site. It was kind of a mess. But we’ve finally got things nailed down for you so this is the deal: Read More

  • TweetAngel Is Twitter CRM Insurance For Small Businesses

    TweetAngel Is Twitter CRM Insurance For Small Businesses

    I often wonder what it’s like to be a customer service representative on Twitter. Lots of companies have them, especially the ones we cover here on TechCrunch which happen to be a bit more tech-savvy than your good ol’ brick-and-mortar small businesses, but it seems like a pretty rough gig. People become shockingly more bold, and angry, via Twitter and it takes a full-time worker… Read More

  • Rovio Goes Gravity-Free With Angry Birds Space (Video)

    Rovio Goes Gravity-Free With Angry Birds Space (Video)

    Curious how Rovio planned on dealing with physics in the forthcoming Angry Birds Space? I have been, too. If we presume that Rovio is playing by the physical laws of space, a lack of gravity fundamentally changes the game. But apparently, that’s the point. Rovio took us to the international space station, courtesy of the video below of course, to show us a little bit about how the… Read More

  • Apple Extends Shipping Date To March 19 For AT&T’s 4G LTE iPad

    Apple Extends Shipping Date To March 19 For AT&T’s 4G LTE iPad

    Despite the fact that Apple’s store was an absolute mess yesterday when it relaunched with the new iPad, it would seem people are still finding a way to get their pre-order on. So much so, in fact, that white versions of the 16GB and 64GB AT&T 4G iPads have been given a new, later shipping date of March 19. This is not even close to a surprise. In fact, we kind of expected the… Read More

  • The Apple Store Is Back Up

    The Apple Store Is Back Up

    So I’ve been pressing refresh on the Apple Store every second for the past hour. It’s really fun, by the way. I’ve seen it cough up the “We’ll be back soon” page, a 404 error page, and even a really cute “Oops!” page. Who knew Apple could be down in such varied formats? So I’m refreshing, and I’m refreshing, and I’m refreshing… Read More

  • GroupMe, Gilt Groupe, Jon Bon Jovi Launch SummerQAmp To Create More Quality Assurance Jobs

    Unemployment continues to be an issue here in the States, but the tech industry could prove a very valuable resource when it comes to building out the American work force. That said, I sat down with GroupMe co-founder Steve Martocci who may have a plan to help solve the problem. In conjunction with former White House CTO Aneesh Chopra, musician Jon Bon Jovi, and Gilt Groupe’s Vice… Read More

    Samsung VP Eric Anderson On The Future Of Smart TVs [TCTV]

    Today at Samsung’s media event in NYC, I got the chance to chat with VP of Content and Product Solutions Eric Anderson on the future of Smart TVs. The company just recently released a number of new Smart TV offerings equipped with what Samsung is calling Smart Interaction — the ability to control the TV through voice and gestures. Read More

    Verizon Releases List Of Devices Getting Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

    Despite the fact that they rarely ever get to use the newest version of the OS when it’s launched, Android fans are still patiently and enthusiastically waiting for their Ice Cream Sandwich updates. The latest version of the OS was released alongside the Samsung Galaxy Nexus back in December, and is probably in the hands of about 2 percent of users as we speak. But after seeing… Read More

  • Samsung Intros New Smart Touch Remote And Keyboard Alongside ES8000 LED Smart TV

    Samsung Intros New Smart Touch Remote And Keyboard Alongside ES8000 LED Smart TV

    Samsung revealed back at CES that it had some awesome things in store for its Smart TVs. The new models would virtually be able to “see, hear, and do” whatever you asked them to thanks to voice recognition and a front-facing camera. And today at Samsung’s media event in NYC, things get even smarter. But the big question today is whether or not Samsung wants to dump the… Read More

    Alltel Wireless Taps Nuance To Power Voice2Text Voicemail Transcription Service

    Alltel Wireless, a Little Rock, Ark.-based carrier that serves six states, has today announced that it will use Nuance’s Dragon Voicemail to Text transcription to power its own Voice2Text service. The service will basically let users read their voicemails straight from their inbox, rather than waiting through voice prompts and having to sit through a message. The beauty is that once… Read More

  • Just In Time For SXSW, Getaround Car Rental Marketplace Launches In Austin

    Just In Time For SXSW, Getaround Car Rental Marketplace Launches In Austin

    Getaround, a car rental community that only launched in May 2011 and subsequently won TC Disrupt NY, is ready to get you where you need to be in time for SXSW. The app that lets you rent a car by the hour, day or week, and comes fully loaded with insurance, 24-hour roadside assistance, and a Getaround car-kit has broken ground in some new territories, including (yep, you guessed it)… Read More

  • Nokia Discontinues Ovi Share Service, Users Have Until March 30 To Retrieve Content

    Nokia Discontinues Ovi Share Service, Users Have Until March 30 To Retrieve Content

    Nokia today announced that it would discontinue its Ovi Share service. Ovi Share is a web service used by Nokia to host users’ content, but with the push toward the Windows Phone platform over at Nokia it makes sense that the company would choose to consolidate its core services. Users of Ovi Share will have until May 30 to retrieve their content from the service, at which point all of… Read More

  • Nokia’s PureView Imaging To Appear On Windows Phone-Powered Lumias

    Nokia’s PureView Imaging To Appear On Windows Phone-Powered Lumias

    I doubt that you’ve forgotten about Nokia’s crazy 808 PureView phone with a 41-megapixel camera. How could you? It’s impossible to dismiss, even if the whole 41-megapixel figure is a bit misleading. The only issue with it is that it runs on Symbian, a slowly but surely dying platform. Luckily, Nokia has confirmed that its PureView technology is headed to the Windows… Read More

  • Isis Reveals New POS Partnerships With Verifone, Ingenico And ViVOtech

    Isis Reveals New POS Partnerships With Verifone, Ingenico And ViVOtech

    Straight on the heels of showing off their new mobile payments system, the carriers leading the Isis joint venture have announced new partnerships with payment solutions providers. At Mobile World Congress Isis revealed partnerships with Chase, Capital One and Barclaycard, and it seems we’ll now be adding Verifone, Ingenico, VivoTech, and Equinox to the list. This should help spread… Read More

    Co-Founder Of Manteresting, Pinterest For Men, On What It Means To Be A Clone [TCTV]

    We’ve found Pinterest clones galore since the social pinboard site first launched, but it would seem that the fad is going in a new direction. Recently I stumbled upon Manteresting.com, a Pinterest for men, and couldn’t help but seek out the founders for a quick little interview. In it, co-founder Brandon and I discuss what it means to be a clone, how Manteresting plans on… Read More

  • Philadelphia Vigilante Doesn’t Want To Hear Your Public Phone Calls

    Philadelphia Vigilante Doesn’t Want To Hear Your Public Phone Calls

    A man named Eric who (uselessly) refuses to give up his last name (which I swear isn’t Eldon) has taken it upon himself to rid the world of annoying public cell phone conversations. But how, you might ask, is Eric X doing this? Just through the illegal purchase and use of a wireless jammer, of course. “I guess I’m taking the law into my own hands and quite frankly… Read More

  • Etsy iPhone App Hits 1 Million Downloads in Under 4 Months

    Etsy iPhone App Hits 1 Million Downloads in Under 4 Months

    Etsy, online seller of various hand-made hipster goodness, has reached a major milestone today. After less than four months on the App Store, the Etsy for iPhone app has surpassed 1 million downloads. The app launched in mid-November 2011. But that’s not all Etsy has to celebrate. Since the release of the app, it’s seen 25-60 percent growth in visits month-over-month, and is seeing… Read More
