• Rumor: Rock Band 2 dated for all platforms

    Eagerly awaiting the arrival of Rock Band 2? Wait no more, fans. Well, mark your calendars, at least. Kotaku received images from a retailer who managed to snap photos of the supposed street dates for the upcoming game across all three major platforms. Looks like Xbox 360 owners get first dibs on the game followed by the PS3 and then Wii. Read More

  • "Sucker City" Circuit City none to happy with MAD magazine [Update]

    First, I didn’t think MAD was still in publication and I thought the only thing left was the stupid FOX show, but it’s nice to see that it still is. In issue #492, MAD has a 4-page spoof of a Circuit City (aptly dubbed “Sucker City”) ad that bashes on the retailer and corporate was not very happy about it. The result: immediate removal and destruction of all issues of… Read More

  • CG Comment of the Day

    MB writes: The Zune is dumb and they need to quit now. No MP3 player will ever beat the iPod, they’re like the Chiquita of bananas. Truer words were never written. Read More

  • Sick of the Garage? Rofo Finds Office Space For Startups

    One of the most irritating obstacles encountered by growing startups is the hunt for affordable office space. Startups with a dozen employees generally aren’t interested in leasing vast tracts of space, which makes them unattractive clients for business realtors, so they’re typically left to fend for themselves. Rofo, a new startup founded by two former commercial real estate… Read More

  • Mophie juice pack for iPhone 3G coming this September


    Despite the price tag of $99, I will be sure to get myself one of these for my iP3G. I’ve been testing the MJP for my first gen iPhone and so far it works great. Sure, it’s a tad bulky, but I’ll deal with it so long as I have enough juice without having to run to an outlet every few hours. A string of four LEDs located on the back indicate how much battery life the juice… Read More

  • Bad reception on your Nokia E71? Just don't touch it.

    According to BGR, the Nokia E71’s signal catchin’ abilities aren’t exactly meeting expectations. In places where signal generally flourishes, they’re reporting little to no service. The problem purportedly stems from the placement of the cellular antenna. Tucked behind the only plastic part of the phone, the antenna hangs out down near the bottom of the rear side of… Read More

  • Thailand suspends sale of Grand Theft Auto after teen goes on a rampage


    Here we go, again. Looks like Rockstar Games could be in some hot water after an 18-year-old Thai teen confessed to robbing and murdering a cab driver because he wanted to see if it was as easy in real life as it was in the game. The miscreant said he didn’t intend on killing the man, but that he stabbed him to death once he started fighting back. As a result of this incident that… Read More

  • Lenovo's X200 tablet PC gets spec'd

    Although I’m sure that it will be blown out of the water by the $200 tablet PC Mike wants to build, in the absence of any actual competitor from that sector this X200 looks pretty nice. It’s got a nice laptop-oriented Core2 with a fast FSB, 2 gigs of DDR3 RAM standard, a 12.1″ screen at 1280×800, 3xUSB, express, and card reader slots. Like its predecessors it has a… Read More

  • James Bond will carry Sony Ericsson C902 in next flick

    Oh, come on. Lets say, for some crazy reason, Sony Ericsson was the only company that made phones in the Bond universe, nullifying all non-SE options. You really think Bond would sport a half-year-old candybar over, say, the Xperia X1 in the next movie, Quantum of Solace? Bollocks. However, the C902 gives them an advantage the unlaunched Xperia X1 does not: tie-in promotions. Timed with… Read More

  • iRiver Spinn caught on video, looks hot

    We saw this thing last week and it looked sweet, but it’s so hard to tell about an interface without seeing it in action. Looks to me like the touchscreen works well, and although the interface doesn’t look as clean as other players, iRiver gadgets have historically done more stuff out of the box. I really can’t wait to get a hands-on with one of these things — hint… Read More

  • Verizon Wireless goes on tour with Linkin Park

    Verizon Wireless has announce dates and premium content for its Projekt Revolution summer tour featuring Linkin Park, Chris Cornell, The Bravery, Atreyu, Hawthorne Heights and more rock. The tour will kick off this Thursday at the Cricket Wireless Pavilion in Phoenix, Ariz. Along with a chance to see their favorite band, fans will also have an opportunity to meet Linkin Park and take a… Read More

  • Twitter and Identi.ca – State of the Union

    Over the past weekend I recorded a special Gillmor Gang edition with Dustin Sallings, the inventor and chief proprietor of the famed TwitterSpy hack around Twitter’s late great Track feature. With Track over XMPP still disabled, a small but vocal group of Twitter users has used TwitterSpy, and another growing group of microbloggers has migrated to Identi.ca, an open source platform.

  • Warcraft Characters iPhone app: Show off your stats

    Warcraft Characters is an application for the iPhone and iPod touch that lets you look up your World of Warcraft character. (This was my guy last year, Zardoz, as cached by Wow Armory. I haven’t played him for more than 30 minutes at a clip since the wintertime.) The app, which is totally free, lets you look up basic character information while on-the-go. Granted, if you’re really… Read More

With this latest addition, the Foundation has cracked the 50 member mark. Joining the roster today are: Cellon, Esmertec, Freescale Semiconductor, Longcheer… Read More

  • MSI launch GX series gaming laptops


    Announced today from MSI is the GX series of gaming laptops packed with oodles of goodies that include Blu-ray drives, NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 3D graphics cards and Intel Core 2 Duo procs. The ability to overclock the proc is pretty simple with the push of a touch sensor that’s located above the keyboard. Another seemingly cool feature via touch sensor allows you to switch between… Read More

    Motorola has appointed Qualcomm executive Sanjay Jha to head its flailing mobile phone business. Jha, who’s been with Qualcomm for 14 years, has been credited with “growing Qualcomm into the No. 1 wireless semiconductor supplier,” and apparently Motorola hopes he’ll be up to the challenge of turning the tables at its handset unit. Following the success of the Razor… Read More

  • Leaked: Thumbnails of Xbox 360 avatar creator images

    I’m not a big fan of the Wii Mii phenomena, but the Xbox team thinks the rest of us are and as they revealed the new dashboard update at E3 they also rolled out the avatars. A few images (real or not, we’re not sure) were passed on to Xbox 360 fanboy that showcase many, if not all, thumbnail images for the avatar creator. Each icon clearly indicates what you’ll be able to do… Read More

  • iPhone Nano by Christmas? Or should the Daily Mail just be banned from Techmeme?

    Back in June I wrote a freelance (just the one mind) piece for The Guardian about my old stamping ground of online media. In this case it was the ABCe figures which come out monthly and tell us how much traffic newspaper web sites get in the UK. But it’s clear that these figures are quickly becoming rather meaningless as newspapers start to learn the game of SEO’d headlines and… Read More
