  • How Not to Drive a Forklift

    http://progressive.playstream.com/playstream/progressive/flashplayers/FLVPlayer.swf Found this odd German forklift training video that half-way reminds me of those old Army comics they used to put out and maybe Day of the Dead. I would love to work at this place, though. All that blood. Kinda NSFW, as well. Happy Labor Day! Read More

  • Ross Levinsohn And Jonathan Miller To Announce New Buyout Fund Next Week

    This news has been simmering for a while. When Ross Levinsohn (pictured left) resigned as the President of Fox Interactive Media late last year it was rumored that he intended to raise a large fund to acquire Internet startups. He soon partnered with Jonathan Miller, the former Chairman and CEO of America Online and the two have been out raising capital for the last few months. Their new… Read More

  • 1.9 Billion Words; Scribd Users Have A Lot To Say

    Wikipedia attracted a lot of attention earlier this week when Nikola Smolenski calculated how much paper it would take to print out the English entries in Wikipedia. Smolenski calculated that as of last September, Wikipedia’s English index of informative/controversial articles would fill about 750 400 page volumes. Under the assumption of a 6MB volume, the total site would take up… Read More

  • No Link Found Between Video Games And Virginia Tech Shooting


    His fault? No. In no way, shape or form did video games, violent or otherwise, shape the actions of Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho. (Just like John opined several months ago.) That’s the conclusion reached by a panel under the watchful eye of Virginia Governor Tom Kaine. It turns out the only experience Cho had with video games was with the likes of Sonic, hardly a game that… Read More

  • Apple Kicks NBC to the Curb


    Damn. Apple just gave NBC walking papers. NBC declined to continue their contract and Apple basically said cyabye. That’s some serious hard ball. I guess I’ll have to torrent my Heroes from now on. “We are disappointed to see NBC leave iTunes because we would not agree to their dramatic price increase,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s vice president of iTunes. “We… Read More

  • Vincent From SlashGear Gropes The LG Viewty

    We seemed to have misplaced our tickets to IFA this year, but Vincent from Slash is getting some great coverage of LG’s latest gem, Viewty. Read More

  • TechCrunch/Seedcamp Party Next Week In London

    We are hosting a party in central London next week on Thursday, September 6 to support the Seedcamp event and to announce some TechCrunch UK news. Most of the spots are reserved for Seedcamp attendees, but we are opening up 100 tickets to the public as well. To discourage no shows, we are charging a £10 fee per ticket, which will be donated to charity. Tickets are available here. There will… Read More

  • SanDisk Bumps Memory Stick Micro To 8GB

    Sony Ericsson mobile phone owners will soon be able to add an extra 8GB of storage-y goodness. The Sandisk M2 cards are currently being tested by phone manufacturers and should be available to the public later this year. Pricing hasn’t been set but a quick check on Amazon shows that the 4GB version can be had for just under $75, with an MSRP of $99. So perhaps the new version will… Read More

  • Xbox 360 Messenger Kit, Halo 3 Edition Controllers Coming Next Week

    Want to know what you’ll be doing the morning of September 4th? Lining up at your local Game Stop, Toys R Us or wherever to hopefully snatch up one of the limited edition Halo 3 headset and controllers. Failing that you could pick up a 360 Messenger Kit that includes the backlit Chatpad and a headset. All things Halo 3 will retail for $59.99 while the Messenger Kit is a mere $29.99. Read More

  • Nokia's Answer To The iPhone

    Gotta love the Web. Here’s the video of Nokia’s touch screen mobile phone that caused everyone at the Nokia: Go Play event to laugh throughout the entire thing. I was completely speechless and so was Seth. Read More

  • Tribler P2P Uses 'Currency," Rewards Uploaders

    Hate it when leechers ruin your BitTorrent experience? A Harvard team has developed a client called Tribler that rewards uploaders with faster download speed and punishers leechers with death. Wait, hold on… No, not death, but with slower downloads. My mistake. The system introduces a sort of currency concept to downloading. Called “TV watching minutes” (damn that needs a… Read More

  • Sharp Announces Next Gen Touch Screen LCD, iPhone Fans Perk Up

    The iPhone’s touch screen is old news by now, so it’s time to move on to the next big thing, right? Of course it is. Sharp’s announcement of its latest LCD touch screen is making a few ripples and for good reason. This here touch screen is a mere 1mm thick, has optical sensors built into each pixel of the LCD and it has a scanner function. All of this on top of the… Read More

  • Sleek Audio's SA6 Headphones Have Interchangeable Parts

    Eli Whitney brought interchangeable parts to the U.S. a few years ago, condemning the South to an agriculture-based economy for much of its history. I doubt Whitney had spiffy-looking headphones in mind back then, though. From Sleek Audio comes the SA6 In-Ear Monitors, a pair of $250 headphones that use interchangeable parts. As the easy-to-follow diagram shows, you’re able to replace… Read More

  • Shure SE110 In-Ear Headphones Review


    Shure’s headphones have been a popular upgrade for those crappy earbuds that came with your music player. But now that the E series has become the company’s professional line, the consumer-focused SE line has been lacking a counterpart to the $99 E2c — until now. The SE110 rounds out the bottom end of the price spectrum, and it holds up pretty well against the competition in… Read More

  • RAZR 2 Induces Fighting In Subway

    I thought the ad I saw in London for the RAZR 2 was a bit much, but this is over the edge. The RAZR 2 will not get you laid nor will it incite a Bruce Lee inspired fight scene with a really hot chick. ‘Sharper Than Ever’, huh? How about lamer than ever. The music is good, Shiny Toy Guns, and the girl is hot, so I guess it’s par for the course. Read More

  • Make Your Own Banana Logo Laptop

    You know how when you watch TV and the characters are clearly using an Apple laptop, but the distinctive piece of fruit is taped over or turned into a different fruit? (Drake and Josh uses a pear, for example.) Now, with a little elbow grease and the patience of a saint you’ll be able to carve your own fruit logo (or whatever else you want). Here, you’ll find the step-by-step… Read More

  • Opera Mini 4 Beta v2 Struts Its Stuff

    Opera sure knows how to make a snazzy web browser. I know I love using it on my Helio devices and apparently even Sidekick users can get a taste if they’re in the developer community. So it’s nice to know that v2 of the 4.0 aka Dimension is now readily available. So what’s the fuss? Well, there’s now a landscape mode that rivals that of the Safari browser on the iPhone. Read More

  • Amazon To Launch Music Store Next Month: 99/89 Cent, DRM-Free MP3s

    Amazon looks to be getting into the digital music game, with the New York Post of all organizations claiming that the Web retailer will launch an online music store the week of September 17. That specific date is tentative, by the way. The store will have support from two of the Big Four record labels—Universal and EMI. (There will also be plenty of independent labels.) You’ll notice… Read More
