• Breast Isn't Best On Facebook

    A dispute is erupting between breast feeding activists (known as “lactivists”) and Facebook over pictures of breast feeding on Facebook. Facebook has taken down pictures of users breast feeding, and has even gone as far as banning users completely on the basis that the pictures constitute “obscene content.” Suffice to say the lactivists aren’t the least bit… Read More

  • Adobe's Online Image Editor Previewed

    Right on schedule, Adobe previews an online version of its ubiquitous Photoshop tool, to be called Photoshop Express. Adobe isn’t saying much, other than to point out that it is not a Photoshop replacement but rather “a new member of the Photoshop family that’s meant to make Adobe imaging technology immediately accessible way to large numbers of people.” Either way… Read More

  • Netscape Digg Clone Is Kaput

    We’ve known about it for weeks (despite Netscape’s claims that our post was innacurate), but now it’s confirmed: AOL has announced the end of Netscape as a social news portal. In a statement, Tom Drapeau spun the decision as being AOL listening to its customers and as part of their “desire to better serve our community.” On the decision itself, Drapeau stated: … Read More

  • PayPerPost: Wasting Investor Money While Offending Native Americans

    Ah, PayPerPost. The controversial Florida-based startup that is leading the effort to tarnish the blogosphere makes another PR blunder. And this one’s a whopper. The company has been chronicling their startup days on a video blog called RockStartup. There have been some embarrassments before with the video blog – such as when a viewer noticed that the company had purchased $700… Read More

  • iPod Touch DOES NOT Have Bluetooth

    Joel over at BBG has confirmed that the iPod Touch does not have bluetooth. Bummer. The photo we saw earlier today was not an official Apple image. Sucks. Big time. Update: Apparently the picture above is legit and it’s still on the US site while it’s been taken off the German site. Who knows what will happen, but we’ll find out once it hits store shelves. Wi-Fi and Bluetooth… Read More

  • TechCrunch UK Relaunches With One Hell Of A Party

    I just returned from our party in central London to celebrate Seedcamp Week and the relaunch of TechCrunch UK & Ireland. Robert Loch, who’s famous for his London parties, generously agreed to have the event at his penthouse London flat in Soho. His parties are so notorious (and I use that word intentionally) that we had to keep the location secret and only email it out to… Read More

  • Guy Logs Onto Xbox Live With Halo 3, Gets Banned

    This guy sounds like a real genius. Some dude on the Se7enSins.com forums posted screens of his TV. It seems he got banned from Xbox Live for violating the Terms of Service agreement. Understandable, but when he rebooted his Xbox 360, he got an image that said: You have been suspended from Xbox Live. You will not be able to sign in to Xbox Live until 12/31/9999. Ouch. Turns out the guy… Read More

  • VUDU review


    I’ve tried several Internet-based movie services such as Vongo, Movielink, Netflix and Amazon Unbox. Each has its own pluses and minuses and require a Windows PC in some way (though now you can get some movies from Unbox directly through a TiVo). VUDU’s device and service beats them all with its excellent interface, great video and audio quality, ability to immediately view… Read More

  • Steve Jobs Wants to Give You $100 (If You Have an iPhone)

    Remember yesterday we told you that if you’re a recent iPhone customer, you’re due for a refund? That left a lot of people outside of the 14-day return window pissed off. Those people wrote emails to Steve Jobs, and he read them. And he feels for you. So he’s making Apple do something fairly unique for those of you who feel spurned: Apple will offer all iPhone customers a… Read More

  • Microsoft Not Worried About New iPod Announcements

    Here’s a little story about heavy metal. Back in the 1980s a band known as Metallica was busy kicking out troublemaker Dave Mustaine. It’s a long story but the end result was that Mustaine made it a goal of his to lead a band that would be exponentially more successful than Metallica. He called this band Megadeth. Well Megadeth released some pretty good albums in the 1980s and sort… Read More

  • NoPoPo Batteries Run Off Liquids

    Aqua Power System, from Japan, has unveiled the NoPoPo batteries that are rechargeable via liquid that’s injected into the battery chamber. Yes, it will run off your urine if that’s where you thought this was going to lead. But let’s try and be mature about this.

  • Acoustic Research Announces Wi-Fi Wonder Remote

    if you look to your left you’ll see what appears to be a normal remote control with an LCD. But that assumption is incorrect.

  • Microsoft: Everybody On The Bus? Good, Great, Grand!

    Ask anyone who lives in the Seattle area (like Matt Hickey) or who used to live in the Seattle area (like me) how traffic is and you’ll be treated to the sight of a bulging forehead vein. It’s bad. Many of the cars on the road could very well belong to Microsoft employees and, starting September 24th, Microsoft’s new regional bus service will “take 240,000 cars… Read More

  • HP Blackbird 002 Gaming PC Details

    You’ll have to forgive John and his meanderings about last night’s HP announcement. He was busy ordering his iPhone. The Ipaq line was already old news by the time the CG crew hit the event. However, the Blackbird 002 was quite special. I think. I was too busy chasing Shaun White and crew from Orange County Choppers and making fun of the dude dressed up as Master Chief. Who… Read More

  • Sony Announces Home Entertainment Server

    Sony announced a home entertainment server yesterday, so forgive me for getting this news to you a day late.

  • Facebook: Opening Up, But on Its Own Terms

    Last week we began talking with a independent programmer who ran into a bit of trouble with Facebook over a snippet of code he developed and published that allowed users to update their Facebook status without visiting the site. Christian Flickinger, who runs the blog Technologist for Hire, posted some PHP code here last April that took advantage of Facebook’s mobile service to perform… Read More
