• Avenue7- social around style for girls

    Coming out of London, Avenue7 is a community for 12 – 17 year old girls to share ideas on the latest fashion trends and products, as well as their own personal styles. Aimed at “bored fashionistas” it makes a virtue of the fact that it’s in London “the style capital of the world” (according to some at least, but then you’ve got to target your… Read More

  • Student CrunchDeal: Get Office Ultimate 2007 For $60

      Straight outta Redmond comes an enormous student discount on the all-inclusive Microsoft Office Ultimate 2007. Apparently Microsoft’s caught on the fact that a fair amount of college students either know how to pirate software or know someone who does, so it’s decided that $60 is better than $0. Oh, and there’s the whole free Google Docs thing too. The deal… Read More

  • Update: HTC Juno Details Emerge

    Sometimes our insiders give us incorrect information and it’s an unfortunate thing because we have to dispose of them. We weren’t completely wrong about the Juno, though. We did break the story on its existence. It will in fact have a QWERTY keyboard and run on Windows Mobile with HTC’s TouchFlo. Our informant was wrong about carrier as the Juno will be a T-mo exclusive… Read More

  • MS Releases Xbox 360 Controllers For All The Ladies, Barf

    Just a quick bit of news coming out of the MS camp at TGS. Three new colors are coming out for the 360 gaming console. The new colors are as follows: Black, which is already available with the Elite, pink (you have got to be kidding me), and light blue. I hope neither of those colors will show up on the console itself, but who wants a white Xbox with a light blue controller? I’m pretty… Read More

  • Facebook Apps Are Pointless If They Don't Work

    Surj Patel is discussing an important issue about Facebook applications over at The Future of Software. Facebook applications deal with the same, if not greater, scalability issues as regular websites. As usage of any online service grows, developers must provide enough storage and computational power to keep up with the demand. Otherwise, pages take forever to load, error messages begin… Read More

  • Sony Reveals Four New Blu-ray Recorders

    I’m not sure what the demand for Blu-ray recorders is like these days, but Sony went ahead and introduced four recorders today in Japan. The BDZ-X90 has a 500GB HDD, two digital TV tuners, two analog TV tuners, a gold plated HDMI output of 1080p and p24, and it can burn dual layer BD-R and RE discs. The BDZ-L70 is also capable of the aforementioned features, but only has a 320GB HDD and… Read More

  • Google Street View Could Be Illegal In Canada, Would Have To Be Changed

    Yup, this is the “hat corner” Who here hasn’t used Google Street View to point out famous-in-their-lives landmarks? For example, when it first came out, I used it to show John where Vince lost his hat (read: threw up on it) after a night of silliness. It turns out Canada—yes, in this case we can blame Canada—doesn’t want me to do that anymore. Or, more… Read More

  • AT&T Unveils Nokia 6555

    While the 6555 doesn’t compare to the N-series phones that were announced in London a few weeks back, it does have a few redeeming qualities. It’s 3G and…hmm…I guess that’s about it. Anyhoo, the 6555 is now available from AT&T for $49.99 after a mail-in rebate and two-year agreement. Ok, fine. The hinge action on this bad boy is rather impressive. It’s so sleek… Read More

  • 3G iPhone Imminent, Says Some Analyst

    All right, I’m apologizing now for this post, but it’s ‘news worthy’ as they say. Will Strauss is an analyst for Forward Concepts and he seems to know a thing or two about the wireless chip and DSP sector. He’s saying that the 3G iPhone’s launch in Europe is imminent as well as a Wideband-CDMA 3G version as early as this week. That should incite a… Read More

  • Online Gaming Pulled In $3.8B Last Year: That's A Lot of Gold

    OK, in case you need numbers to justify your several hundred hour WoW investment, here we go. Online Video games now generate more cash than other forms of digital entertainment including music and video. So I guess that makes you/us cool in the eyes of… well, someone, probably. Such games made $3.8 billion last year and are projected (by Strategy Analytics, a company known only by those… Read More

  • Back to School 2007: Real College Student™ Advice from "John L"

    In which our correspondent describes his daily activities at “school.” My favorite electronic gear is probably my sidekick. I really like to have the internet handy wherever I go, and the keyboard on it is unparalleled. I have always wanted to check out the Helio Ocean, but the plans are more expensive, and you can’t multi-task as well as the sidekick. In addition i really… Read More

  • Back to School With CrunchArcade

    School is back in session. And whether you’re in junior high or working on that post-graduate degree in “trying to avoid the real world,” you need to dedicate some time to your studies. Sure Halo 3 comes out later this month and that’s going to require some serious attention on your part. But too much gaming and your grades are going to suffer. Instead use games to… Read More

  • Microsoft To Watermark DRM-Free Music?

    In what actually appears to be a decent middle ground, Microsoft has patented a method for digitally watermarking audio files with information that uniquely identifies the content creators and original purchasers. If implemented correctly (i.e. unobtrusively) this could be a good step in separating full-fledged pirates from honest consumers who are fed up with how infuriating it is to try to… Read More

  • Opera Mini 4 Beta Hacked for Helio's Ocean! Again! With Full QWERTY Support!

While this might not sound like Earth-shattering news, it is to those of us who enjoy using what is arguably the bestest… Read More

  • Windows Vista Crippled By WGA (Again)

    Buyer beware of WGA Getting around Microsoft’s stupid Windows Genuine Advantage verification process is easy, but not for everyone. Those who pirated Vista and are using an illegal key will have to remain diligent in keeping their hacks up-to-date, but for the rest, expect a new kind of OS experience. Says a local Microsoft rep about pirated copies of Vista: “Good afternoon, as… Read More
