• William Gibson Talks Life on "The Peripheral"

    An Interview With William Gibson, Author Of The Future

    William Gibson didn’t invent the Web but he gave us the language we use to describe it.

    Pact Aims To Take The Freshest Coffee Imaginable Direct To Your Door

    Starting in October 2012 in his kitchen, Stephen Rapoport, founder of Pact Coffee, decided to create a new kind of tech-driven coffee startup which could deliver the freshest coffee to people, and ween the British off of their famous obsession with instant coffee.

    Built In Brooklyn: Maker’s Row Bets On US Manufacturing

    For the first episode of our new show Built In Brooklyn, we took the “built” part of the title pretty seriously. I mean, we here at TechCrunch think it’s pretty meaningful to build a great website or mobile app — but there’s some extra cool about visiting the manufacturers who are actually building or assembling physical goods. I got to see some of that… Read More

  • Microsoft Band Demo

    Hands On With Microsoft’s New Fitness Wearable, The Band

    Dropping out of left field like a foul fly ball from the Kansas City Royals this week, the Microsoft Band was a surprise. Part fitness band, part computer, part mobile Twitter and stock-checking smartgadget, the Band is a mix of things. And it pretty much works. It’s still a bit clunky, as you might expect from first-generation hardware, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the Band. Read More
