• OMFG: Free iPhone Unlock is Here


    It looks like our contest may be moot, friends. It looks like a number of the usual suspects — except GeoHot and some shady Russians — have cracked the iPhone wide open. The software is mirrored here and it’s just a zipfile that contains a command line app that looks to be compiled for the iPhone. I tried to run it from the command line in OS X and it wouldn’t take.

  • Propeller Will Be The New Netscape Digg Clone

    AOL has announced that Propeller.com will be the new home for the Netscape social media experiment. What was once considered a possible Digg-killer is now relegated to the backwaters of AOL. In a statement, Tom Drapeau said that AOL was “working hard behind the scenes to ensure a smooth transition before we officially launch at this new destination,” which given the site… Read More

  • Wikia Gaming Launches With 250,000 Articles

    I love Wikia – CEO Gil Penchina, a former eBay executive, says he works harder than anyone in Silicon Valley at building his startup. I routinely point out to him that his startup doesn’t actually do anything – their wiki software is based on the open source MediaWiki project, Google, Looksmart and FM Publishing handle all the revenue via ad sales, and their users create… Read More

  • Walkit benefits from Tube walkout

    Europe’s cities are often based on a medieval street plan which is utterly chaotic and not suited to public transport. In London it’s sometimes possible to take a walking short-cut between London Underground stops faster than than it is to take the tube itself. Walkit.com launched late last year but because of the recent industrial strike on the Tubes may have now found its… Read More

  • PikiWiki: Drag 'n Drop Files onto Collaborative Pages

    PikiWiki, which opened to the public yesterday, is no ordinary wiki. Instead of collaborating with others to edit text-dominated pages, people can use PikiWiki to easily share media with one another in a scrapbook-like environment. The coolest thing about PikiWiki is how well the company has pulled off its drag and drop interface. After you sign up for a free account and create a blank page… Read More

  • The Holy Grail For Mobile Social Networks

    We’ve been tracking emerging mobile-only social networks such as ZYB and Mocospace and Mig33. All have unique selling points (Mocospace is dead simple to use, ZYB has a rich set of potential users from their address book backup service, and Mig33 has a VOIP tool that has attracted over seven million users), but there’s one solid gold feature that none yet have: physical… Read More

  • Apple to iPhone Devs: Go Ahead, But We're Not Helping

    Apple isn’t going to help you hack your iPhone or iPod Touch. That being said, it’s not going to stop you either. In an interview with PC Mag, Greg Joswiak, Apple’s smart head of marketing, basically said that while Apple won’t block development of the handhelds as a platform, it won’t actively break native apps made by third parties. That’s not to say that… Read More

  • Social networks to merge with Bluetooth apps?

    Dating – especially handing over contact details – is a tortuous business at times, so how much easier would it be to network if the point of contact was made easier to control? Social networks have this opportunity right now, but how do you take it into the physical world? UK based First Move is a dating site where you create a private profile then buy black or pink credit-card… Read More

  • Guitar Hero III: Legends Of Rock Coming To A Mac, PC Near You

    I tried playing Guitar Hero once and I embarrassed myself in front of half a dozen or so people at Best Buy. In real life, I can actually play the guitar. Not well, mind you, but I can keep a tune. We all know Macs have been lacking in gaming for quite some time and I’m not much of a fan of Harry Potter, but I’m without a doubt anticipating the release of Guitar Hero III for the… Read More

  • Exclusive Shots of the New Vonage VDV21 Router


    You like to make phone calls? This little black box will let you make phone calls. Our tipster writes: just received one of the new Vonage VDV21 boxes. The package was pretty nice and it is about a 2 min process to get setup. I will let you know how this thing works – only downside so far is you need to get a new Vonage number to do the beta, you can’t use your existing #. This… Read More

  • Back to School 2007: Gadgets for Grade-schoolers

    Hey kids! You’re old enough to want but not old enough to procure. What should you do? Ask your parents for some of these ultra-fine items. What if they say no, you ask? Keep whining! Cellphones Let’s start out with cellphones. Sure mom and dad can get you some old phone from Verizoningularmobile. But who wants that?

  • iPhoneSimFree Software Hack Leaked

    I’ve been feverishly searching torrent sites for the iPhoneSimFree software hack just to see if it’s been leaked. I don’t have an iPhone nor do I wish to purchase one, but everything else gets leaked onto the Web so I figured this would be no different. Low and behold, what do I find? Oh yeah, the software hack. Oddly enough it came from the Hackint0sh forums, but whatever. Read More

    BGR is reporting that, starting tomorrow, the add-on price of T-Mobile’s “Total Internet” plan will drop to $19.99 per month, down from $29.99. T-Mobile is also announcing a new e-mail-only BlackBerry plan for $9.99 per month.

  • Tron Sequel Officialized!

    If you’re even remotely alive and over the age of 25, you’ve probably seen and loved Tron. The film has a crappy plot on the surface: a nerdy computer programmer gets sucked into the computer system he’s coding for. The thing is, it’s not science fiction, it’s fantasy. The story is an old one: a god-like being (a “User”) finds himself living among… Read More

  • Stop Playing Brick Breaker On Your BlackBerry

    Often times I notice BB addicts on the train and they’re not exactly what you would call a power user. Most of them are just checking e-mail and maybe playing Brick Breaker. There’s a whole lot more available to you on your BB, but chances are you just don’t know where to go to find apps, right? Well, RIM has launched Built for Blackberry where you can go to find all sorts… Read More
