    Six months ago, we went out on a limb and endorsed Barack Obama and John McCain as the most tech-friendly candidates of each political party.

  • Snapped: Old-school Game Boy spotted in non-ironic action

    If Indiana Jones can come back, why not the first real handheld console?

  • Asus' Xonar HDAV 1.3 sound card looks pretty serious

    It’s a dark day for Creative. If you’re budget-minded, you can get an excellent Razer sound card for $50 today from Woot, and if you’re an A/V snob, Asus’ top-shelf media card, the Xonar, will probably beat the pants off any X-Fi — for a price. Judging by the amount of this post that I do not understand, this sound card is in some deep media-handling territory. Read More

  • Great Moments in Non-Greatness: No Dell netbook until 'later this summer' because of the keyboard

    Some reporters (not me) met in Austin, Texas at Dell’s headquarters to hear about a bunch of stuff that’s going to be happening over the coming months. Most notably were some scant details about Dell’s netbook that’s supposed to be released this year.

  • Broadcom Billionaire Henry Nicholas Indicted on Cocaine and Stock Back-Dating Charges

    Practically everybody partied too hard during the 1990s. But Broadcom founder, and billionaire, Henry Nicholas, partied harder than most. Two indictments came down today on Nicholas. One for back-dating stock options that cost the company $2.2 billion in accounting charges last year, and the other for, well, partying too hard (the indictment mentions cocaine, Ecstacy, and prostitutes).

  • FIFA 09 promises '50,000 combinations' of tactics'. Sure it does.

    Like sands in the hourglass, EA will release FIFA ’09, presumably, this fall, with all sorts of pretend new features. Today there’s word that EA will pack “50,000 different combinations of tactics.” If there’s ever been a less meaningful phrase in the history of the English speaking peoples, I haven’t heard it.
