• Cooking With Video on Cookshow.com

    You know how it’s easier to follow a recipe in a cookbook if there is picture? It gives you something to shoot for when you can see what the finished product is supposed to look like. Well, the same thing goes for online recipes. Except, why stop with pictures when you can include complete video tutorials? That’s what two French entrepreneurs, Jacque Petit and Gilles Piedoye… Read More

  • Spanish Social Network, Wamba, Scores 3M Euros in Funding from Early Skype Investor

    ¡Que rico! Early Skype investor Morten Lund has gained 40% ownership of Wamba after making an investment of 3M euros in the Spanish social network. Wamba launched this past March as a Pan-European social network but has recently focused on Latin America where it will compete with hi5, MySpace, and Orkut (although apparently with the intention of capturing the Spanish-speaking, not… Read More

  • LongJump's Library Of Customizable Business Apps

    We last wrote about LongJump back in June when their business application platform launched. Like Coghead, DabbleDB, Zoho Creator, WyaWorks, and SalesForce’s Force.com, LongJump lets programming novices design their own applications. To do so, LongJump provides a visual application creator and directory where users can share the apps they develop. Since launch, they have over 100… Read More

  • Teh.Be$T.Kommenter.Evar

    Comments are the greasy oil that keeps the blog machine running. Here are three great (and 100% unedited) comments recently posted by your fellow readers. MagicJack: Apply Directly to the USB Port Hidesquadron1 Great product, but the commercial is more annoying than John Madden pointing out how to properly win a football game by “scoring more points than the other… Read More

  • Someone Please Tell John Biggs He Has The Wrong Press Credentials

    We totally laughed at John’s expense at Digital Life today. Last night there was a press event called ShowStoppers, totally unrelated to Digital Life. Similar stuff, sure, but completely different show. Someone noticed that all of our Digital Life badges were different: I have “Crunch Gear,” Vince has “CrunchGear,” Peter has “CrunchGear.com,” Blake… Read More

  • Digital Life 2007: The Man (Kid, Really) Behind The 'Cruce Wayne' Moniker


    Cruce Wayne rules Like Vince said, he and I picked a random kid at the end of the Digital Life entrance line today, hooked him up with a press badge and took him around the show floor. A journalist for the day, if you will. Free T-shirts and other goodies and review units were but some of the items he took home. But who is he? Who is Cruce Wayne (and why does that name make us laugh so… Read More

  • Digital Life 2007: Parrot 3.5-inch Photo Frame Debuted

    Parrot really loves Bluetooth. In fact, I’m pretty sure if a Parrot was a doughnut, Bluetooth would be a cup of coffee. What? OK, anyways, Parrot unveiled its new 3.5-inch Bluetooth photo frame today. It comes in several different colors with a stitched leather trim surrounding the tiny display. Although tiny, it displays pictures beautifully and can hold up to 100 of them on its… Read More

  • Update Bricks Hacked iPhones, Kills Kittens


    Possible results of updating your iPhone. Over the past few weeks Apple’s stance on hacked and modified iPhone software has drastically shifted from “do as you please” to a full on blow to the nuts earlier today. Although the iTunes WiFi music store is included in the update, users are reporting SIM errors when the device is used with anything other than AT&T. There… Read More

  • Ok, Wait, Le Backup: iPhone Not Coming to France's Orange Afterall? Huh?

    I’m going to write this whole post without making a pun about Apples and Oranges. The point is, though, that we’d heard that Orange would be the French carrier for the froggy version of the iPhone. Orange had planned on announcing the partnership, and later did. Here’s the stickler though: Apple and Orange had never actually settled on the economics. They’re apparently… Read More

  • Creative Zen Review


    Creative’s Zen line of media players hasn’t stolen much thunder from the iPod, but it has been more successful than many. The latest, dubbed simply the Creative Zen, is a flash-based player that does video on a 2.5-inch screen and rocks a full-size SD card slot. It’s not bad-looking, and it resembles the Zen Vision in many of the right ways. But its boatload of features… Read More

  • Digital Life Cruceified: Lord of the Rings Online

    As Cruce Wayne and I went around the showroom, I asked what kind of tech he was into. Video games seemed to be Cruce’s forte, so we made our way over to Lord of the Rings Online and got a little demo going. The game is the only MMORPG for the LotR trilogy and works closely with the Tolkien estate to ensure the content in the game is of excellent quality. Read More

  • The Podcast Network Signs John Cleese For Video Podcast

    The Podcast Network (TPN) has announced the signing of English actor, writer and comedian John Cleese for an exclusive video podcast series titled “Headcast.” Cleese describes the show as “a somewhat humorous, somewhat more thoughtful, [a conduit that] gives me a chance to sound off in my old age.” A free version will be made available over the next few months on… Read More

  • Jajah Now Does Click To Call For Anyone

    Jajah will be officially announcing their click-to-call buttons on Monday. The buttons, which let people call the owner for free and anonymously, have been quietly in private beta over the past year. They are also taking on international calling card services and Jaxtr and Jangl, who already have click-to-call offerings on social networks and dating sites. The call buttons are available to… Read More

  • Digital Life 2007: The Mascots

    I have no idea why Popeye and Olive Oyle were at Digital Life, but Pac-Man was repping Namco and looked really happy to be walking around in a hot mascot suit all day. After the jump, Popeye and a dirty elementary school classic. Be warned though, Popeye’s chin looks like a pair of balls, so it may be a little NSFW if your boss is a testicle connoisseur. Read More

  • Novint Falcon Hitting CompUSA

    Hey, everybody! Remember that 3D touch game doohickey we told you about a few months ago? Yeah know, where you can feel shapes, textures and weight. Well, if you’ve been waiting-and I know you have been-hit up your local CompUSA store beginning October 8th and pick up a Novint Falcon game controller. There’s a super exclusive Limited Edition Novint Falcon Bundle for $239 that… Read More

  • Digital Life Cruceified: Meet Cruce Wayne


    Our buddy John from M-Audio shows Cruce Torq Mixlab Today marked the start of the Digital Life convention in NYC. Once a year, us journalists are forced to trek all the way over to 12th Avenue to the Jacob Javits Center so we can cover products we’ve known about for months. It’s not exactly fun for us, but for the general public, it’s the experience of a lifetime. Read More

  • Nickelodeon's NPower Lineup Of Electronics

    Last night was the Showstoppers event, which is usually pretty lame and filled with cruddy vendors. However, last night was an exception. The guys behind the event must have finally realized that using the aging Copacabana as a venue was a bad idea and instead chose to host the even at the new New York Times building. Read More

  • Erector SpyKee: Erector

    Nikko and Erector just launched the Spykee Spy Robot, a Johnny-5-esque little fellow that recharges itself and includes a webcam and MP3 player all in a clever little package. It costs about $299 and lets you watch your family remotely, ensuring that your domicile will be safe from robo-phobic burglers. It reacts to motion so when someone pops in for a visit the SpyKee can email their picture… Read More
