• Suunto launches new line for the ladies

    Suunto is launching 11 new models just for the ladies, breaking their long tradition of building some of the beefiest watches on the planet and toning things down a bit. Don’t worry, guys. There’s still something for you. Trying to get some pictures right now and, since the company didn’t supply them with the press release I decided to use a picture of something the ladies… Read More

  • Report: Apple, movie studios reach agreement, will sell movies on iTunes same day as DVD release

That’s big because it could eat into DVD sales, which maybe… Read More

  • HP develops memristor: Memory that goes beyond 0s and 1s

    HP went ahead it developed itself a memristor, an, until now, theoretical electrical circuit that’s able to store binary values (0 and 1) and intermediate steps in between. Size is one of the many benefits of HP’s memristor, which the company says can be used to create dense memory chips. And, since it’s not limited merely to binary, the memristor would be ideal for… Read More

  • Hobnox – quality audio and video tools

    Hobnox is a video and audio tools platform in closed beta coming out of Cologne, Germany. It’s aimed – mainly – at users who’d like to use rich tools to create and collaborate over video and audio. And I must say, what they have done with Flash tools is amazing. The idea is to unite broadcast quality media with community tools. So the Hobnox Audio Teaser audio engine is… Read More

  • AT&T to launch Mobile TV service this Sunday

    AT&T will begin selling two handsets on Sunday, May 4th to complement its “AT&T Mobile TV with FLO” service. FLO TV, in and of itself, is not exclusive to AT&T, as it’s been available to Verizon Wireless customers since January 2007 as part of the VCast Mobile TV feature. At any rate, AT&T will soon be offering the service on the LG Vu ($299) and the… Read More

  • BlackBerry Kickstart: RIM's first clamshell

    The rumors are true, RIM does have a clamshell BlackBerry and it’s said to be coming soon. Most likely by the end of the year. The Kickstart as it’s being dubbed at the moment has a SureType keyboard, external LCD and has the same trackball we’ve all come to love or loathe. I don’t know about this one. I’m not that big a fan of clamshells, but it is a BlackBerry. Read More

  • Watch out for virus-laden, third-party "recertified" iPods

    This isn’t as weird as the girl who got a cryptic, anti-capitalist note instead of her iPod, but it’s potentially far more damaging. This guy bought a refurbished iPod Touch through Buy.com for $99 — what a deal, right? As it turns out, not so much. It was infected/infested with a trojan that quietly installs a backdoor on your Windows system. Nasty. He contacted Buy.com and… Read More

  • Video: Keyboard cum guitar truly rocks

    / I’ll admit it, I was in a laptop pop band in the 90s called ABC/DefG. We used the keyboards on our laptops to play music live shows. We were laughed at, but the guys in this video make me feel better. That being said, the truly geek half of me thinks this is badass cool. Could you imagine doing this with an Optimus keyboard? via Make Read More

  • T-Mo's big 3G roll-out is voice-only? Pretty weak, guys

    Why even bother rolling something out when its primary purpose is not present? It’s be like releasing a car without wheels, or a console without games (oh wait, Sony did that). But that is exactly what T-Mobile is doing: the first phase of the rollout, however long it may be, will only be using the 3G network for voice. You’re stuck with EDGE for data. Well, if you’re… Read More

  • Time Warner thinking of selling Time Warner Cable

    In an earnings call today Time Warner reported that it was planning to spin off its Cable holdings, “under the right circumstances.” No specifics were noted but Time Warner Cable is obviously bolted on to the weak AOL and TW media holdings and not quite the best fit for a media company in the first place, synergy be damned. TWC had a $771 million in profit last quarter, which is… Read More

    Two ladies lookin’ to get their charge on. Samsung is pleased to announce the addition of charging stations in the LaGuardia and Orlando Airports and what better way to show off their huge, penis-shaped chargers than by featuring underaged girls and their grandmother rocking out to some free power, straight outta Seoul.

  • Crytek dropping PC exclusivity thanks to piracy

    In an interview with PC Play Magazine, when asked about the current state of PC gaming, Crytek president Cevat Terli said: “We are suffering currently from the huge piracy that is encompassing Crysis. We seem to lead the charts in piracy by a large margin, a chart leading that is not desirable. I believe that’s the core problem of PC Gaming, piracy.  To the degree PC Gamers… Read More
