• ExitReality Turns Social Network Profiles Into 3D Spaces

    Exit Reality from Duncan Riley on Vimeo. ExitReality promises to transform the social networking experience by offering virtual versions of every social network site profile. I caught up with CTO Danny Stefanic and CEO Dean Jones today for a walkthrough, video above. The London, UK headquartered (the dev team, founder and CEO are in Australia) startup is pitching its product as an… Read More

  • Ecocho Means Well, I'm Sure

    Ecocho is a new search engine wrapper for Google and Yahoo that calls itself the first “green” search engine. They get to that claim by using some of the revenue they generate to buy carbon offsets. They’re a bit unclear on the exact payoff, saying only that “up to two trees” will be sponsored for every 1,000 searches on the site. The cynical side of me notes… Read More

  • Vipera aims mobile SocNet at developing world

    Vipera is a new mobile social network with a twist – it’s aimed at people in developing countries. That makes a great deal of makes sense. We are talking about places where to say “Facebook” would make people think of a book with faces in it, not a social network. But ask them about a mobile phone, and they will show you a charging point. Vipera, in beta, employs a… Read More

  • No new DS at E3, says Nintendo Japan

    A few days ago I reported that Enterbrain’s publisher Hamamura was predicting that Nintendo would reveal a new DS at E3. Nintendo Japan is now clearing up the situation altogether instead of giving the typical “we don’t comment on rumors blah blah blah.” Nintendo Japan’s head of PR said, “We cannot comment on the specifics of what will be announced at E3, but… Read More

  • WTF: "Iron Man" trailer to become full length film?

  • Another Apple rumor: Freaky Blu-ray multi-HDD enclosure

    Apple has, I think rightly, stayed mostly out of the Blu-ray/HD DVD fiasco. They have an online distribution system that works, and they don’t think people want to watch hi-def movies on their MacBooks. Fair enough. But what about all those cinematographers and video editing pros who need Blu-ray authoring ability on the Mac Pro they do their Final Cut stuff on? Well, rumor has it there… Read More

  • Nikon updates D3 firmware, 24.4-megapixel D3X revealed?

    Those of you special enough to have a D3 may want to know that Nikon has released firmware version 1.10 for the behemoth of a DSLR. That’s fine and dandy but some chaps over at DPReview did a little digging into the firmware and found some lines of code that have led some to believe that the elusive D3X, a 24.4-megapixel, could be on its way. Keep reading for more details. Read More

  • Grooveshark Launches Web Media Player

    Music sharing and sales startup Grooveshark has launched Grooveshark Lite, a flash app that provides access to all the songs in Grooveshark’s library. For those unfamiliar with the company, Grooveshark allows users to upload and share their music collection with friends, but with a twist: every song uploaded can be purchased DRM-free with the uploader getting a cut of each sale (the… Read More

  • Dopplr adds hotel and travel content

    Dopplr has quietly added content from Mr & Mrs Smith, the boutique and luxury hotel guide, to help users find hotels as they travel. As users create trips on the site they’ll see content from Mr & Mrs Smith’s site on high-quality lodging and “quirky city boutique hotels”. It looks like it’ll be right up the Dopplrati’s street. Here’s the… Read More

  • New iPhones rumors a-swirlin: iPhone shuffle?

    What’s the most ridiculous thing you can imagine? An “iPhone Shuffle” with no video playback? Funny, that’s what I was thinking too! That is why this rumor is, at least partially, completely ridiculous. The thicker, 3G iPhone with a super-battery is much more likely, though it would be the first time Apple made their flagship product bigger. But an iPhone Shuffle, half… Read More
