• New Forum Site To Gossip About Work

    I’m just going to touch on Wurkpal briefly. It’s a very simple forum site that is designed specifically for people to gossip/complain/etc. about their work environment anonymously. The site takes a guess as to where you are logging in from based on a reverse hostname lookup and tries to direct you to the correct company forum. You can also view the directory and go from there. The… Read More

  • NASPerform Network Storage: Up To 750GB

    The one thing I lack in my sleek setup here is a network attached storage device. Other World Computing comes out with one today, the NASPerform, that works with any network (it has to be physically connected to a router, though) and with any make and model of computer. It’s a NAS (but you can also just plug it into a USB 2.0 port to use as a regular external hard drive), so… Read More

  • The Format War Is Over: 9 Out of 10 Thieves Prefer Blu-Ray


    Thieves broke into Silver Platters, a Seattle video store, and made off with their entire Blu-ray selection. That’s right. They ignored the HD-DVD stuff completely. That’s basically the entire story (“Theives prefer Blu-ray.”), but I wonder why this is? Maybe because the PS3 is a subsidized Blu-ray player? I mean if you’re ganking DVDs you’re probably also… Read More

  • Wells Fargo Browser Based Mobile Banking

  • Microsoft Now Selling Digg's Ads

    Kevin Rose writes a somewhat cryptic blog post announcing that Digg has done an ad deal with Microsoft. He says it’s a deal similar to the one Facebook signed with Microsoft last year. That probably means that, as with Facebook, Digg is getting a guarantee, and Microsoft will be losing money on the deal. The status of Digg’s relationship with Federated Media is somewhat up in the… Read More

  • Motorola Teaming with Microvision For Mobile Phone Projectors

    Earlier this year Toshiba came out with a so-called “palm-sized” video projector, but soon we might be seeing projectors built-in mobile handsets. Imagine the idea of using the phone to watch mobile TV and projecting the image on a white wall. What was mere science fiction could be fact as Motorola has teamed up with Microvision to bring laser-projector technology to mobile… Read More

  • Ustream.tv Now With More Interactivity

    Earlier this month we tackled the evolving space of online live video. In its raw form, live is a very different format when compared to recorded video. There’s no post production editing to cut out your gaffs or nab the best parts. Pushing the most interesting content in front of viewers in real time is a challenge. But there’s an audience to interact with, and that makes all… Read More

  • UnWired Buyer Let’s You Do the Talking

    As a self-confessed eBay junkie, being in front of the PC in those final seconds is crucial to my well being. There are snipe programs, and I can monitor the auctions on my mobile handset or Blackberry. But the problem is that the interface in many of these devices is just too slow for those times when I need to quickly enter a last minute (second) bid. I find myself yelling at the phone…… Read More
