  • Microsoft v. Wikipedia: Round 2

    In my post yesterday discussing an attempt by a Microsoft employee to pay a blogger to make changes to certain Wikipedia entries that Microsoft considered unfair, we noted that a Microsoft spokesperson made a number of factual statements. Spokeswoman Catherine Brooker said she believed the articles were heavily written by people at IBM Corp., which is a big supporter of the open-source standard. Read More

    Google's Metaverse

    All this hype about Second Life is resulting in lots more competitors, it seems. There was another rumor today about Google turning Google Earth into a sort of Second Life competitor. This one comes from Michael Eisenberg, a partner at Benchmark Capital, which is one of the investors in Second Life. He says the rumor is “Google is working on turning Google Earth into a virtual world a la… Read More

    Win Reggie's Wii for Charity, Laughs

    . We love Reggie, we love helping, and we love long time that they’re together. It’s currently just over $1,000, but that’s a bargain when you realize some day this man’s signature alone will sell for millions, let alone the retro hardware. We’re hoping one of our readers wins it, though it’s unlikely. But if you do, we’ll dedicate the site to you for a… Read More

  • Ants Quite Literally In Your Pants

    Dear Mom and Dad, I’m 12 years old now, and since it’s been two years since Blacky got hit by a car (god rest his soul in doggy heaven) I thought now might be a good time to start anew with pets. I’m not looking to start with anything expensive or messy. I don’t want another dog or even a cat. Not even a parrot. Read More

  • Dell Goes Open Source, Ships OS Free Desktops

    We agree with Dell: You don’t need a pre-installed OS. If you are looking to go bare bones with your desktop, Dell’s n Series is about as bare as it gets, shipping with FreeDOS instead of Windows, a first for the mail-order PC maker. This means that out of the box you can install the communist Linux variant of choice. Or, if you have one of those Windows disks laying about, you can use… Read More

    JBL Debuts ES Series Speakers

    Looks like JBL has decided to take a break from futuristic styling and is regressing to old-school, wood panel speakers with its new ES line. The speakers are slated to debut in late spring and come in multiple finishes to match any home entertainment system. The ES series will include the ES10 – a bookshelf speaker, the ES20 and ES30 are both compact bookshelf speakers, the ES80 and ES90… Read More

  • Cingular/AT&T's KRZR Gets Internal Cam, 3G

    on pushing later this year. That means this slim flip is most likely the real deal, and will probably drop at about the same pricepoint as the current KRZR when it hits later on in 2007. Motox.info [Via Mobile Mag] Read More

  • Nokia N800 Quick Look

    I take a gander at the Nokia N800, their latest N-Series Internet tablet. Much cooler than the 770 but I’m still not convinced it’s a total must-have. UPDATE – Improved the audio a bit. Product Page Read More

    Asus Vista Happy Mobos

    With the impending release of Vista, Asus is now offering four new motherboards designed especially for use with the new OS. The cornerstone feature of the new mobos is the ScreenDUO, a secondary display that allows users to view important system information without having to start the PC.

    New Service from Sprint Helps You Lie

    Cellphones are a bridge between one human and all of his or her fellow humans. Fortunately, it’s a drawbridge, and one can raise it to keep certain people at bay. Sometimes, though, you’re in a situation that calls for a quick out, a need to escape with a convenient excuse. Sprint knows this, and has a solution: MobileFaker. MobileFaker (MF for short) is a collection of services that… Read More

  • OS X On Non-Apple Hardware Via Virtualization

    In the fallout of the Mac’s shift from PowerPC to Intel-based hardware, X86-compatible versions of OSX floated around the Internets, allowing anyone to install the Apple operating system on a PeeCee (yours truly included). This is one thing Apple does not want, but with both VMware and Parallels working on virtualization of the Mac platform, it’s becoming a very likely reality. Beyond… Read More

  • Nike Considered: All Condition Gear

    Nike Considered: All Condition Gear

    Nike Considered is a new line of shoes that are eco-friendly. Most of the line looks butt-ugly, but that’s OK because it’s biodegradable or whatever. I had been overlooking most of the shoes because they were completely non-noteworthy, but Nike has just announced two All Condition Gear (ACG) Considered shoes and they suck less than the others. The Water Cat (top) is, as the name… Read More

    TechMeme‘s blog news search engine is gaining popularity and becoming increasingly influential. Perhaps too influential. Dave Winer, who writes the popular and venerable blog Scripting.com, has requested that TechMeme stop indexing his site.

    Mark-My-Time: Bookmark of the Future!

    I’m pretty sure that I’m not the only one who finds this digital bookmark cool. It’s intended for kids to read for a designated period of time. Just set the digital timer to some predetermined duration and the reader knows how long to read. Sounds like a good idea for parents trying to get their kids to complete books for class, or for their own benefit. It costs $8.95 and comes… Read More

  • Fear Of Draft-N Hardware Dissipates With Draft 2.0 Approval

    Those aching to buy new wireless draft-N equipment should feel comfortable pulling the trigger now even though the final specs won’t be approved for more than a year, October 2008. The IEEE’s 802.11 working group ratified Draft 2.0 of the eventual 802.11n wireless standard last week, which includes backwards compatibility with with early Pre-N equipment, though with reduced magical… Read More
