  • Here Are The HTC Phones Invited To The Ice Cream Sandwich Social

    Here Are The HTC Phones Invited To The Ice Cream Sandwich Social

    Though it’s far and away the best iteration of Android to date, 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich has only made its way to a very small percentage of the Android population. I mean, we’re talking less than five percent, and that’s generous. Luckily, HTC is doing its part to bring the cold creamy goodness of Roboto, facial unlock and a brand new UI to its handsets.

  • LG Spectrum Phone on Fly or Die

    Fly Or Die: The LG Spectrum

    The Spectrum has been a busy little diva the last few days, strutting in and out of our NYC studio like she belongs there. So much in fact, that I’ve given her a gender and started to refer to her in gender-specific pronouns. A scary thought, to say the least. Matt seems less perturbed by her presence, though I was (and still am) more than willing to duke it out with him over the value… Read More

  • Sony Unveils The Xperia Sola: Look, Mom! No Hands!

    Sony Unveils The Xperia Sola: Look, Mom! No Hands!

    Sony’s been bringing it lately, with a trifecta of monosyllabic Xperia goodness at CES and MWC. I personally believe that a key ingredient in the secret sauce may be Sony’s ability to keep the new phones classy — the Xperia S, U, and P all got high marks from us in terms of build, feel in the hand, and overall aesthetic quality. But the newest member of the Xperia clan may… Read More

  • LG Spectrum Review

    LG Spectrum Review: Initial Impressions (Video)

    Let me just start by saying that so far, I’m not a fan. But, these are just initial impressions so we’ll see how my relationship with the Spectrum progresses over time. Sure, the LG Spectrum has a stunning 4.5-inch 720p display, Verizon 4G LTE, and all the innards of what could be a great smartphone. But so far I’m not ready to call it a great smartphone. Read More

  • Got Facebook Pics? Transform Them Into Wall Art With CanvasPop

    Got Facebook Pics? Transform Them Into Wall Art With CanvasPop

    If ever there was a meeting ground between your decorative tastes and your virtual self, it would be CanvasPop. The service lets you upload photos, even those taken with a cameraphone, and blows them up onto canvas to hang in your home. It’s pretty nifty to say the least, though until today the fun was limited to uploads and Instagram photos. But CanvasPop is ready to go big, thus… Read More

  • Mogul iPad Stand Makes Square An Elegant Option At Point-Of-Sale

    Mogul iPad Stand Makes Square An Elegant Option At Point-Of-Sale

    I usually trash any email that comes my way pitching an iPad case and/or stand. Sorry, but there are just so many of them that they really need to stand out. The Mogul, a Kickstarter project, certainly stands out and just so happens to solve a bit of a pain point, too. See, the Mogul isn’t your average iPad stand. It’s actually meant to be used as a point-of-sale module in… Read More

  • Empire Avenue Revamps Interface, Adds Google+ Scoring

    Empire Avenue Revamps Interface, Adds Google+ Scoring

    Empire Avenue, while a great service, has been a bit confusing. In fact, the idea itself can kind of boggle the mind — users build up their personal brands via Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks, and allow people to buy and sell virtual shares of human beings. Users can also turn the value of their web-based contributions into actual revenue by tapping into an advertising… Read More

  • Danny Wen Explains What Harvest Is

    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

    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's Steve Martocci on Summer Internships

    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

  • Interview With Samsung VP, Eric Anderson

    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

    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 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
