  • Tokyo Game Show: Streetfighter IV for PS3 and XBOX 360 looks awesome (videos)

    One of my favorite games of this year’s Tokyo Game Show is Streetfighter 4, which made an equally great impression on the XBOX 360 and PS3. Capcom made massive efforts to promote the game, for example with this very cool trailer you can watch below. Read More

  • SlingCatcher now available

    Boy, the SlingCatcher has been in the works for sometime, but it’s finally shipping to eager nerds. The $299 streamer gives owners access to all their SlingBox’s without the need a computer. Plus, almost anything can be streamed off a Windows PC and eventually via Sling.com media portal. It’s a great looking device from a celebrated company, but is launching into a… Read More

  • New Xbox 360 Bundles: Pandas, archeologists, tennis

    Give your server a shot in the arm with a Samsung Server SSD drive. The 32 and 64GB hard drives were designed to hit lightning fast 100MB/s in reading and 80MB/s during reading speeds. No word on individual pricing, but you can pick up an HP ProLiant Blade server with these drives right now. BTW, if you do get one of these drives, how about making a similar video to this one with your new… Read More

  • Brutal

    Here is a one-month stock chart comparing Apple (down 40 percent), Google (down 20 percent), Yahoo (ditto), and Microsoft (down about 10 percent). Microsoft is holding up best. If Yahoo keeps diving, what next? Discuss among yourselves. Read More

  • Tokyo Game Show: Monster Hunter 3 for the Wii is one of the most popular games of the show (video)

    Monster Hunter is a highly popular RPG brand in Japan so no wonder people lined up for hours at the Tokyo Game Show to play the third part of the series (I didn’t). Capcom will release this game on the Wii but it’s undecided when. Watch a video of the game after the jump. Read More

  • More MacBrick Pro images surface

    Here we go again. Three more images that show off what appears to be a new MacBook case made by Apple’s new manufacturing process, codenamed ‘Brick‘. These are slightly different from the one that dropped yesterday, as the side speaker grills are absent. In fact, if it wasn’t for the side shot, it kind of looks like an MacBook Air case. It does make sense that Apple… Read More

  • As the Markets Melt, Wikinvest Wire Launches To Offer Advice From Financial Blogs

    The current market gyrations have investors running everywhere seeking advice. What better time to launch a newswire culled from the latest posts of financial bloggers? That’s the idea behind Wikinvest Wire, which has just been launched by the user-edited investment site Wikinvest. Except that it is not really a newswire in the traditional sense. It is more like a contextual… Read More

  • FOWA kicks off today and we are holding Mark Zuckerburg's personal journal hostage

    The Future of Web Apps Expo opens today in London and last night the speakers were invited to a special speakers dinner. It was extra special as FOWA/Carsonified founder Ryan Carson had his birthday as well. But among the guests missing from this genial event was one Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook founder and FOWA keynote speaker. So, as the saying goes, snooze you lose, Mark. We have the, really… Read More

  • MySpace backs UK developers with cash-prize competition and events

    MySpace is launching a UK MySpace Developer competition to build “the best sustainably social application,” and they’re throwing some money into the pot to incentivise developers out there.

  • Tokyo Game Show: Developer talks Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World for the PS2 (video)

    The video was shot by and provided to CrunchGear first by DigInfo Tokyo. Everyone agrees that the Dragonball trailer looks pretty crappy, but at least Dragon Ball Z: Infinite World, a fighting game based on the famous Japanese anime/manga, looks pretty decent. Namco Bandai promises the game, one of the biggest crowd pleasers today at the Tokyo Game Show, will hit stores worldwide on December… Read More

  • Kevin Mitnick on the Palin e-mail hacker: Punishment should fit the crime

    http://www.g4tv.com/lv3/29183 Yes, that evil “hacker” who broke into Sarah Palin’s e-mail account was indicted yesterday. Politics aside, it was a pretty dumb thing to do, especially posting the e-mails online after the fact. To that end, here’s renowned computer security consultant (and former HACKEROMG) Kevin Mitnick giving his opinion on the whole matter on… Read More

  • Nikon D3x drumbeat begins anew

    Will Nikon do the obvious and release a D3x? Will it release the camera this December for $6,499? Will the camera have a 24.4-megapixel image sensor? Will it have the same body as its progenitor, the D3? Will it be able to shoot at a rate of 9 frames per second? We don’t know, but we wouldn’t mind playing around with such a camera. Read More

    Better photo forthcoming Wannabe photographers looking for a cellphone whose camera doesn’t stink on ice may want to check out LG’s latest offering, the 13.9mm thick KC780. No fancy touchscreen here, but there is an 8-megapixel camera. And while we all know (or should know) by now that megapixels aren’t everything when it comes to taking decent digital photos, LG has a… Read More

  • Tokyo Game Show: Resident Evil 5 is the best title this year (video)

    I just came back from this year’s Tokyo Game Show, which will end this Sunday (tomorrow is the second “business day”, followed by 2 days that are open to the general public). And I have no doubt that Resident Evil 5 (Biohazard 5) is THE game of the show. I played both the XBOX 360 and the PS3 version and both looked and felt fantastic. If I could choose I would prefer the… Read More
