• Google Analytics Data Sharing: Why Not Go All The Way?

    Google Blogoscoped (and the Google Analytics Blog) is reporting that Google is now giving users the opt-in option to share their Analytics data with other Google services, and/or in an anonymous, aggregated way in a new benchmarking service. This is certainly useful for some companies – particularly since Google is only making new services based on this data available to users… Read More

  • Brits Britproof Britain for Texters

    [photopress:1765772958_padding_protect_pedestrians.jpg,full,center] Further proving my hypothesis that Mr. Bean is not a character but just an average self-absorbed Brit, Brick Lane authorities have found themselves forced to try out padding the city’s lampposts because idiots keep walking into them whilst texting. I say let them bonk their heads. It’s the only way they’re… Read More

  • Post Mix Keynote Interview With Scott Guthrie

    I had the opportunity today to catch up with Scott Guthrie, Vice President of Microsoft’s Developer Platform and one of today’s Microsoft keynote speakers. In the video above we cover a range of Silverlight topics, from the SeaDragon implementation, through to the future of Silverlight. Guthrie wouldn’t confirm that Silverlight would be moving offline to become a full blown… Read More

  • Newertech's USB-to-HDD adapter does the trick

    [photopress:hddusb_1.jpg,full,center] Upgrading your harddrive is tough. Moving those files around and making sure everything copies is a pain and it’s time consuming. Newertech has something novel that might help, a universal USB drive adapter. Pretty much any IDE, ATA, ATAPI, or Serial-ATA drive of any size can become a USB drive with this adapter, which includes handy status lights so… Read More

  • Apparently the Apple store is a great place to pick up guys other than myself


    The ladies at the *Sugar network have discovered that the Apple store in SF is full of geeky single guys. I think that’s actually in the yellow pages description of the store, but they decided to investigate. As expected, the store was packed with nerdy, semi-eligible men and very few women on the prowl. They documented their foray into the wild world of Macheads and now you can learn… Read More

  • Video: Alternate ending for "I Am Legend"

    http://www.gametrailers.com/remote_wrap.php?umid=184699 John Biggs wanted me to post this neat video for all of you to see, but since I actually haven’t seen the film yet, I don’t want to watch this alternate ending. Instead, I’ll write about what I imagine it contains. My, what a lovely lace doily! via Game Trailers Read More

  • University to provide an iPhone or iPod Touch to all new students


    These jokers are really upping the ante. Of course, unless they’re providing crippled iPhones, there’s going to be a whole lot of chatting going on in lecture. They say they’ll integrate them into the classes (answer quiz questions, watch slide shows, etc) but I am skeptical that a bunch of 18-year-olds will be able to resist the temptation of watching an episode of Aqua… Read More

  • Sprint offers free web-based phone call translation

    Oh boy, I gotta see this. Sprint’s offering its new “WebCapTel” service to people who don’t have trouble speaking but might be a little hard of hearing. The basic idea is pretty simple. You sign up for the service and register your phone number at SprintCapTel.com and when someone calls you, you can log into the site and have what they’re saying automatically… Read More

  • Tune In At 10 am Tomorrow For iPhone SDK Event Live Coverage

    Tune in tomorrow here and on CrunchGear for live coverage of Apple’s iPhone SDK event at Apple HQ in Cupertino. The event starts at 10 am PST. What do we expect will be said? Well, hopefully we’ll get an idea when the SDK will be available, since it really looks like Apple will miss their promised February launch. Apple is also saying they’ll announce “some exciting… Read More

  • Expert: in 2013 you will record 10 channels simultaneously for 2 weeks, fly


    Some boffin over at Rice University has decided that five years from now, the capacity of DVRs will be such that we’ll be able to record HD video from ten channels at once, and keep it going for two weeks straight. That’s all fine and dandy, but what the professor has failed to take into account is that channel-based TV is on its way out even now, and the popularization of DVRs… Read More

  • Sony's slim new VAIO too big for its britches

    [photopress:vaio.jpg,full,left]Being the largest ultraportable is something of a dubious honor, like being the healthiest model or the least-convicted child rapist, but Sony wears it with pride, touting its new VAIO VGN-SZ750N/C laptop as just such a beast. And the description is true, at only four pounds, it definitely fits as an ultraportable in weight, but the 13.3-inch LED backlit… Read More

  • Is this the zzzPhone?

    [photopress:IMG_1594.JPG,full,pp_image][photopress:phoneFace.jpg,full,pp_image]
    I just got out of a meeting with EcoCarrier.com, of whom I’ll post in the next few days. One thing that struck me immediately, however, is that these guys had a working 3-SIM cellphone with touchscreen and keypad called the Eco123 which looks surprisingly like a rebadged zzzPhone. While I wish neither of… Read More

  • eSnips CEO Drama Disrupts Company

    Lots of bad news leaking out of Israeli startup eSnips this week. The company, which is part social network and part file uploading service, continues to grow – recent Comscore says they had 8 million unique visitors in January, up from 2.2 million a year ago. But founding CEO Yael Elish left the company for “personal reasons” just as they were closing a round of funding a… Read More

  • Asterpix Video Hotspots Now Generated Automatically

    Asterpix is a company working on technology that adds so-called hotspots to video. These hotspots, which look like dash-bordered boxes, hover over particular objects in a video and can be triggered to show popup information when you place your cursor over them. The popup information has relevance to the object under consideration and consist of things like a description, related links… Read More

  • Mario Kart Wii's channel and online play detailed by Nintendo


    Looks pretty sweet. If you’re going to dedicate yourself to a game like this (and I think that you are), it’s good to have a well-designed base for the community. Hopefully this system will result in good matchups and make it easy to find your friends, although personally I can’t imagine playing Mario Kart with strangers. It’s an intimate experience, really, at least… Read More

An account named “NIN” uploaded the 320kbps, LAME-encoded album on the private torrent trackers and “NINOfficial” on TPB. The band’s rep told TorrentFreak, which has quickly become the go-to source for all my BT… Read More
