  • Learn Mandarin on your Mobile Device

    If you plan on going to the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing next summer, or you want to curse out the people who put dangerous chemicals in your toothpaste, you may want to learn Mandarin. For those non-linguists out there, Mandarin is a group of closely related Chinese dialects that are spoken in most of China. Fluenz is a company that provides interactive language learning software that… Read More

  • Bling Software Follows MobileCrunch Closely

    Bling is defined as, “flashy jewelry worn especially as an indication of wealth.” The good people at Bling Software have a wealth of knowledge about the mobile phone business through their following of MobileCrunch. Bling Software was founded in January 2007 by CEO Roy Satterthwaite. In just eight months, the company has delivered the first Ajax-based (Asynchronous, JavaScrip and… Read More

  • What Starts With 'i' and Rhymes with Smack?

    Hello, Mr. Fedex man! What’s in that big box. Oh my! Just put it down here by the couch. It’s certainly big! Let me open it up. Read More

  • Netflix Shaves Off One More Dollar

    Netflix is getting desperate in their struggle against Blockbuster or they’re taking a page out of Wal-mart’s playbook and gearing up to drive out Blockbuster from online rentals altogether. I’m inclined to believe the latter is true, well, for the most part. By shaving off another dollar from their already cheap prices, Netflix is teetering on a fine line that could end… Read More

  • RIAA Lawsuit Defendants Blame Everyone But Themselves

    So this is how Natalie Imbruglia felt. I’m torn. On the one hand, I think the RIAA is ridiculous for suing everybody. On the other hand, I think people not taking responsibility for their actions and blaming everything on everybody else is ridiculous too. And so we dance. Read More

  • The New Apple Keyboard Review


    Sleek and stylish like an ostrich walking across water When Apple revealed the new iMac at its Town Hall meeting, I was less than impressed. Sure, the design was cooler and the speeds were increased, but it still looks an awful lot like my iMac G5 with iSight. However, with the new iMacs came new Apple keyboards. Slim as hell and packed with improvements, it takes on the style of keys that… Read More

  • Happy 25th Birthday, Compact Disc

    I’m getting ready to move from Minneapolis to Boston and, upon cleaning out my house, found a treasure trove of old CDs that I’d shoved under the stairs along with my 3DO and Sega Saturn systems that some idiot spilled beer all over. I grabbed Metallica’s self-titled black album (which, coincidentally was the first CD I ever bought) and threw it in the last remaining CD player… Read More

  • Crucial Makes Picking RAM Easy, Even Your Mom Can Do It

    Figuring out what type of RAM you need for your PC or Mac can be a cumbersome task if you don’t know what the difference between DDR and DDR2 is. We’re all bargain shoppers to a certain extent and we want to get the cheapest RAM possible, but unless you or a friend know what you’re doing then you could buy something that won’t even work on your rig and that sucks.

  • Textango’s Innovative Music Billing

    In the information age, small startup companies are able to compete in the marketplace through innovative thinking. Giants like Apple and Google started as great ideas that were backed by little capital, but grew into huge successes. A young company, Textango, may have found a market with huge possibilities. Textango is a mobile billing and music delivery platform that lets customers… Read More

  • Mossberg on iWork, Numbers

    http://services.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f8/452319854 Uncle Walt did a video review of iWork, pointing out that Apple makes fun of the PC’s “expertise with spreadsheets” and then they go and make their own spreadsheet app. I’ve been trying a trial version of iWork for the past week and I may just switch once i figure out all of the features, but so far… Read More

  • Celebrity Death Match: Nokia vs Qualcomm

    Fight! Nokia has asked the US International Trade Commission to deny entry of Qualcomm chipsets while the two are fighting it out in court over five patents that Qualcomm is supposedly infringing upon. The patents in question relate to technologies that improve the performance and efficiency of wireless communication devices as well as enabling lower manufacturing costs, smaller product size… Read More

  • Speed Of Light Broken, Einstein Rolls Over In His Grave

    A pair of German physicists are claiming they’ve broken the speed of light. Maybe they’ve never heard of a gentleman with crazy white hair and his theory of relativity, which states that you’d need an unlimited amount of energy to thrust an object at 186k+ miles per second. Well, the physicists say they’ve conducted an experiment where microwave photons have… Read More

  • Submit Software to Download Sites, Win Valuable Prizes

    Andy at SuccessfulSoftware.net created a piece of software that he submitted to a number of download sites. He was immediately bombarded by “Five Star Awards” from a number of the shadier ones in what essentially became a linkback spam attempt. In order to test his hypothesis — that these awards are bogus — he created an app called “awardmestars.” He… Read More

  • AT&T Tilt ROM Screenshots, Same Ole WinMo 6

    We broke the news on the Tilt’s launch date and pricing the other week and now a few (over 60) screenshots of the finalized ROM have made their way around the Web. If WinMo 6 is your thing then get ready to go buck wild. Better have some tissues handy. Read More

  • Harman Kardon Go + Play iPod Dock Review

    Normally I deal with JBL, one of the companies Harman Kardon owns, so it’s good to get a breath of fresh air one could say. Harman Kardon is known all over the globe as a wicked speaker manufacturer. Some of the HK systems in cars blow the competition away. So when I received the Go + Play to review, the bar was already raised high. Read More

  • Johannes Kepler $100k Astronomer's Wristwatch

    Came across this unique watch on BoingBoing. Only 99 of these watches were made and are named after 17th century astronomer Johannes Kepler. He’s the dude who came up with the formulas for the Laws of Planetary Motion. Big stuff. Johannes’ timepiece doesn’t come cheap though. It’s more than $100,000 per watch, but the design is magnificent. Check out how the watch… Read More

  • Daboda HMC-1 HD Media Center+NAS Makes Piracy Fun Again

    This little black box known as the Daboda HMC-1 may not be the prettiest one I’ve ever seen, but underneath is a combined NAS (for network attached storage) and media center. It’s also able to decode high-def video all the way up to 1080p. Too bad my HDTV only does 1080i. Let’s put it in honest terms: you download HD rips of TV shows and movies onto the Daboda, then play… Read More

  • The AudioFile: Handcuffing Digital Music


    Copy protection is leaking out of the digital music industry like water from a cracked snow-globe. The latest developments continue to point toward a DRM-free future in which you’ll buy music from different online stores for use anywhere, much like buying CDs from different physical shops like Virgin or Sam Goody and having them work fine in any player or computer. But if digital music… Read More
