  • Sony to take rear projection division out behind the wood shed

    Sony wants out of the rear projection TV game and what Sony wants, Sony gets. Well, except for record-breaking sales of PS3 consoles — hay-oh! Still got it. Anyway, the move isn’t all that surprising as other TV manufacturers have made or likely will make the same decision. Sony actually has about 28 percent of the rear-projection market here in the US but it’ll trade it all… Read More

  • Exploring an old Sun Microsystems building

    In the heyday of “microcomputing” Sun was living giant. Their terminals were everywhere and their graphics machines were state of the art. Look how far the mighty have fallen. This travelog of pictures from inside an old Sun headquarters where the ghosts of Solaris prompts come and gone still haunt the halls. Bonus: It looks like someone was killed in the building.

  • "Tekken" to become movie, world remembers "Street Fighter: The Movie"

    Variety reports that “Tekken” will soon become a major motion picture. No actors are yet attached to the film, but Dwight Little is slated to direct.

  • Rumor: GTA IV release date revealed

    If rumors are to be believed then April 25th is the day most of us have been waiting for. I was never really into the GTA series until San Andreas, but IV has me chomping at the bit. It was believed that the long awaited title from Rockstar would be released in March, but that is apparently untrue according to sources close to Rockstar. The April launch date falls in line with Take 2’s… Read More

  • Fair Use Vs. Free Speech in the Internet Age: The Lane Hartwell Problem

    The furor surrounding the now infamous Bubble video (embedded above) is not over. To recap: the parody video was watched more than one million times on YouTube, then taken down because photographer Lane Hartwell objected to the unauthorized use of one of her photos in the video, then put up again with the offending photo replaced and a list of credits at the end for all the images used. Now… Read More

  • Samsung u940 passes through FCC

    Look who showed up on the FCC. If it isn’t the CDMA version of the F700, the u940. You remember this little guy, right? We were the first to tell you it was coming and now it’s one step closer to being realized. Could there be an official announcement at CES? Maybe. FCC Read More

  • Paramount, MTV forego theaters stream "Jackass 2.5"

    This is starting to get interesting. First Radiohead released “In Rainbows” Online, then Saul Williams released the Trent Reznor produced “The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of Niggy Tardust.” Now it seems that movie studios are, at least to some degree, following suit. While filming “Jackass 2,” the crew apparently created enough content for two entire films. Read More

  • Jango Introduces a Slick Jukebox Widget

    It’s been a little over a month since we reported on Jango and a lot of exciting things have been happening. Their stable of music has expanded, though it still needs a bit of work, but we’re willing to bear with it as their catalog improves. Since their public launch in November they’ve enlisted 180,000 registered users and 750,000 listeners who have created over 1.5… Read More

  • Twitter Downtime On the Upswing

    Even after moving to a new data center, Twitter has been undergoing some growing pains. Royal Pingdom reports that the service has been down almost a total of six days since it began monitoring the service last February. Downtime so far in December has exceeded almost any preceding month, with nearly 11 hours of downtime, compared to 9 hours in November. I guess everyone is trying to get… Read More

    It’s been nearly three years since Think Secret editor Nick Ciarelli caught the wrath of Apple for leaking info on the Mac Mini and iWork prior to MacWorld.

    The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will rule in favor of Google’s acquisition of DoubleClick, possibly as soon as this week, according to sources quoted by Bloomberg.

  • Fraxi – a "Ning" For Digg Clones

    Ning (and now flux) commoditized social networking and allow anyone who can click a mouse to have their own network. The same thing is now happening with social bookmarking sites that allow people to vote bookmarks up to a top list (better known as Digg). There are scores of Digg clones already, of course. The most well known is Reddit, which was acquired by Condé Nast a little over a year ago. Read More
