  • Disney, A Mobile Company

    Disney, A Mobile Company

    In the central corridor of the animation building at Disney Studios there is a gold-leafed cupola hovering directly over a marble inlay of Steamboat Willie, the movie considered to be the debut of Mickey Mouse. If you stand under the dome and speak, you’ll hear your voice reverberate. To everyone else standing outside the circle, your voice sounds merely human, but to the person standing… Read More

  • And The TechCrunch Disrupt Europe Finalists Are Crate, Disease Diagnostic Group, Oscult And PhotoMath

    And The TechCrunch Disrupt Europe Finalists Are Crate, Disease Diagnostic Group, Oscult And PhotoMath

    Over 1,500 people have walked through door at this year’s TechCrunch Disrupt Europe conference in London. We had everyone from Elvis impersonators to people dressed up as chickens participate, as one does at a tech conference. Highlights included watching our boss Tim Armstrong chat with Josh Constine about the high growth future of Aol, and what he learned after the mistake of… Read More

  • Live From Apple’s iPad, Mac And OS X Event

    Live From Apple’s iPad, Mac And OS X Event

    Today’s the day for Apple’s special October event, at which we’ll most likely see the launch of new iPads, new Macs and OS X Yosemite, the latest version of Apple’s Mac operating system. The event is happening live from Apple’s own Cupertino HQ, in their Town Hall Theater, and it all starts at 10 AM PT/1PM ET. We’ll be live blogging all the news as it… Read More

  • TechCrunch Is Hiring A Product Manager

    TechCrunch Is Hiring A Product Manager

    If you’re a product-oriented person who has always wanted to work on a product that is all about other products but at the same time is very much a product of its own that needs a great product vision — you’re in luck! TechCrunch is in the hunt for a product manager, one who knows the difference between Product Hunt, Cool Hunter and a Fred Dryer procedural from the 80’s… Read More

  • Tesla Motors Just Invited Press To Come Look At Its New D

    Tesla Motors Just Invited Press To Come Look At Its New D

    Tesla Motors just sent out invites to a press event on October 9th in Los Angeles, presumably to unveil the new ‘D’ car that founder Elon Musk tweeted about yesterday evening. Now, we officially have an event, to be held at Hawthorne Airport. The D is rumored to be a new vehicle in Tesla’s lineup, with the Jalopnik folks speculating on a (D)ual motor all wheel drive version… Read More

  • A Manual iPhone Camera, Finally

    A Manual iPhone Camera, Finally

    Finally is a funny word, especially when it comes to Apple. I try to avoid using it because I’m cognizant of the fact that Apple’s pacing is often a lot different than the hive mind’s idea of what it should be. Just see how long it took to implement third-party keyboards in a way that was satisfactory security-wise for an example. Read More

  • Apple’s Tim Cook Does Some Security Straight Talking

    Apple’s Tim Cook Does Some Security Straight Talking

    Today, Apple’s Tim Cook posted a letter announcing a new security page on the company’s website, publishing some fairly plain-language security talk. There’s some solid language here that is clearly designed to allay fears about the way that Apple protects user data in the wake of the celebrity nude hacking incidents. Cook’s words: We believe in telling you up… Read More

  • The iPhone 6 (And 6 Plus) Go To Disneyland

    The iPhone 6 (And 6 Plus) Go To Disneyland

    Last week I decided to test the most secretive, hotly anticipated smartphones on earth in a place where there was no danger of them being recognized or damaged or both: Disneyland. Both my wife and I are Disneyphiles of sorts, and visit a dozen times a year or more. I have an appreciation for it because my daughter loves to go, but also because of how carefully the place is planned… Read More

  • Citrix Acquires Virtual, An Android And iOS Virtualization Company

    Citrix Acquires Virtual, An Android And iOS Virtualization Company

    We’re hearing from a reliable source that Citrix has acquired a little company we wrote about back in July called Virtual. The firm, manned by an impressive set of software hackers, claimed to be able to virtualize both Android and iOS completely enough to act as an environment for bug testing and hardware emulation. The buy makes sense for Citrix, which could use Virtual to emulate… Read More

  • The Disrupt SF 2014 Battlefield Finalists Are Alfred, Partpic, PatternEQ, Shipstr, Stack And Vinli

    The Disrupt SF 2014 Battlefield Finalists Are Alfred, Partpic, PatternEQ, Shipstr, Stack And Vinli

    In our new conference venue at Pier 48, 26 battlefield competitors (and two Audience Choice winners) have pitched their hearts out onstage at TechCrunch Disrupt SF these past two days. It’s been a nerve-wracking process for these founders, as they presented their business ideas to some of the most accomplished people in our industry who gave feedback on whether those ideas are worthy.

  • Live From Apple’s iPhone Event In Cupertino

    Live From Apple’s iPhone Event In Cupertino

    Apple is holding an event today in Cupertino that kicks off at 10 AM PT, and we’re already here at the Flint Center holding it down. Next to the theater is the giant cube-like white mystery building that Apple has constructed on the site specifically for this show, whose purpose is yet to be revealed. We’ll be posting photos and updates (with Matthew Panzarino on the keyboard… Read More

  • What Is The Fate Of Apple’s iPhone 5C?

    What Is The Fate Of Apple’s iPhone 5C?

    With Apple releasing new iPhones next week, the question arises: what will happen to its existing models? With recent releases, Apple has kept older devices around to serve it at lower price points in certain regions. But which older devices are going, which are staying and what will the prices be? Just as a thought exercise, let’s talk this out. What I would conjecture is that the iPhone… Read More

  • Apple Dominating Shipping Capacity Out Of China With New iPhones

    Apple Dominating Shipping Capacity Out Of China With New iPhones

    According to several sources, Apple has already begun flexing its supply chain muscles by shipping so many units of upcoming devices from its manufacturing facilities to sales outlets that it is causing delays for other manufacturers. Apple shipments via major concerns like FedEx and UPS are said to be ‘incredibly high’ for the holiday quarter, pointing to a massive number of… Read More

  • Apple Should Be More Transparent About Security

    Apple Should Be More Transparent About Security

    It seems that Apple has gotten embroiled in a security scandal of one sort or another every few months. It dodged Heartbleed but was hit by the very embarrassing ‘goto fail’ bug. It was called out for not adequately documenting the uses of diagnostic tools that could have been used to collect data from user devices. Late last year researchers showed off a method for… Read More

  • Apple’s Two Factor Authentication Doesn’t Protect iCloud Backups Or Photo Streams

    Apple’s Two Factor Authentication Doesn’t Protect iCloud Backups Or Photo Streams

    One of the common bits of advice you’ll see people giving you around this celebrity picture hack is to enable two-factor authentication on your accounts — including Apple’s. That’s good advice, but it wouldn’t have protected any of these celebrities and it doesn’t protect the other accounts that are compromised by hackers that are able to obtain an Apple… Read More

  • Twitter’s Timeline Could Get (More) Algorithmic

    Twitter’s Timeline Could Get (More) Algorithmic

    Twitter has changed significantly over the past 8 years. With every new product manager and leadership cadre there have been attempts to make it more accessible to new users and more sticky for existing ones. But the biggest changes may yet be ahead as Twitter considers altering the core of its product: the timeline. Update: Twitter CFO Anthony Noto made some comments at a conference this… Read More

  • For The First Time, More People Will Watch MLB.tv Streams On Devices Than Desktops

    For The First Time, More People Will Watch MLB.tv Streams On Devices Than Desktops

    On August 26, 2002, Major League Baseball streamed its first live MLB.tv video of a game to the web — a tiny, grainy little player that looks laughable in comparison to today’s HD streams you hold in your palm. Read More

  • PayPal Co-Founder Max Levchin To Speak At Disrupt SF 2014 About His Latest Startup, Affirm

    PayPal Co-Founder Max Levchin To Speak At Disrupt SF 2014 About His Latest Startup, Affirm

    We’re happy to announce that PayPal co-founder, Yahoo board member and self-proclaimed crypto-nerd Max Levchin will be returning to the Disrupt stage in September. Last year, Levchin spoke with TechCrunch co-editor Alexia Tsotsis about the NSA, lessons he learned from PayPal and his fertility app, Glow, which now is doing rather well. But Levchin just can’t sit still and… Read More
