  • 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.

    The video was shot by and provided to CrunchGear first by DigInfo Tokyo.

  • 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?

    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
