  • Adobe selling Flash for mobiles for zero dollars


    Those jokers down at Adobe are making a play for more of the mobile market by launching what they call the “Open Screen Project.” Don’t get ahead of yourself there, Adobe. It’s a bit of an indulgent name considering Flash is hardly an open format. Still, it’s hard to criticize them for putting it out there for anyone to take — no charge. Very nice. They… Read More

  • 'Zv' takes your VGA signal and pumps it out over coax

    Here’s an interesting idea — sort of how FM broadcasters for MP3 players work, except this device sends video from your computer out to a blank TV channel over your home’s coaxial wiring. It’s called “Zv” and it’ll cost $500 when it launches later in June. Read More

  • Better Late Than Never. Apple Finally Gets Serious About Movie Downloads.

    After years of negotiating with the movie studios, Steve Jobs finally got them to agree to put their movies on iTunes the same day as they release them on DVD. Now, in addition to Disney—which has been selling movies on iTunes since September, 2006—Apple is distributing 1,500 films from 20th Century Fox, The Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios… Read More

  • Google's AdWords for TV Comes Out Of Beta, But Is Still Hamstrung

    Since last June, Google has been piloting a test with advertisers in private beta to put regular 30-second video commercials on TV in an automated fashion through AdWords. Today, Google is opening that program up to all advertisers and even offering a $2,000 promotional credit towards creating a professional TV commercial. I love how Google fails to mention anywhere in the announcement that… Read More

  • FiOS quite possibly maybe coming to New York at some point soon

    Verizon released some b-roll of FiOS being prepared in New York with the promise that as soon as “city officials” approve of the service we’re going to get some sweet, sweet downstream speed. Until FiOS arrives in your area, however, Verizon suggests doing one or more of the following: 1. Reorganizing your wallet.
    2. Finally calling the 311 on the man who keeps putting… Read More

  • Suunto launches new line for the ladies

    Suunto is launching 11 new models just for the ladies, breaking their long tradition of building some of the beefiest watches on the planet and toning things down a bit. Don’t worry, guys. There’s still something for you. Trying to get some pictures right now and, since the company didn’t supply them with the press release I decided to use a picture of something the ladies… Read More

  • Report: Apple, movie studios reach agreement, will sell movies on iTunes same day as DVD release

    Be on the lookout for an Apple announcement today regarding iTunes. The Hollywood Reporter says that Jobs & Co. have reached an agreement with several movie studios, including Diseny, Fox, Warner Bros., Paramount, Lions Gate and Sony that will let Apple sell movies on iTunes on the same day and date as their DVD release. That’s big because it could eat into DVD sales, which maybe… Read More

  • HP develops memristor: Memory that goes beyond 0s and 1s

    HP went ahead it developed itself a memristor, an, until now, theoretical electrical circuit that’s able to store binary values (0 and 1) and intermediate steps in between. Size is one of the many benefits of HP’s memristor, which the company says can be used to create dense memory chips. And, since it’s not limited merely to binary, the memristor would be ideal for… Read More

    Hobnox is a video and audio tools platform in closed beta coming out of Cologne, Germany. It’s aimed – mainly – at users who’d like to use rich tools to create and collaborate over video and audio. And I must say, what they have done with Flash tools is amazing.

  • BlackBerry Kickstart: RIM's first clamshell


    The rumors are true, RIM does have a clamshell BlackBerry and it’s said to be coming soon. Most likely by the end of the year. The Kickstart as it’s being dubbed at the moment has a SureType keyboard, external LCD and has the same trackball we’ve all come to love or loathe. I don’t know about this one. I’m not that big a fan of clamshells, but it is a BlackBerry. Read More

  • Watch out for virus-laden, third-party "recertified" iPods

    This isn’t as weird as the girl who got a cryptic, anti-capitalist note instead of her iPod, but it’s potentially far more damaging. This guy bought a refurbished iPod Touch through Buy.com for $99 — what a deal, right? As it turns out, not so much. It was infected/infested with a trojan that quietly installs a backdoor on your Windows system. Nasty. He contacted Buy.com and… Read More
