  • T-Mobile Sidekick Gekko revealed

    Well, here it is, folks, the Sidekick Gekko/Aspen. It’s still unclear which name T-Mobile will be going with, but it’s clear that they’re the same device. From the looks of it it’s pretty obvious that the Gekko takes design cues from the iD and you may be able to customize the bumpers. Hiptop3 also has word that the screen on the Gekko will be the same Sharp AQUOS LCD… Read More

  • TechCrunch Dinner with Scott Rafer, CEO Lookery

    UPDATE: This event is now sold out. I recently heard that Scott Rafer would be in town next week. Scott is a Silicon Valley Internet entrepreneur, CEO of Lookery (CrunchBase info), and former CEO of MyBlogLog, which was acquired by Yahoo! last year for $10 million. So I thought I’d throw a quick dinner to get some startups together and chat. Scott will be talking informally about the… Read More

  • 'Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff' coming this fall on Nintendo DS

    Tecmo Bowl! It’s coming to the Nintendo DS sometime this fall. EA has a lock on NFL licensing until 2012, so the teams and players in “Tecmo Bowl: Kickoff,” as it’ll be called, will likely have names like the Las Vegas Legends and the New York T-Bones or what have you. Details are scant, except for the gorgeous logo shown above. Ars Technica reports that…

  • Clive Thompson on GTA IV: Who puts this stuff here

    Socio-nerd Clive Thompson reviewed GTA IV with a rhetorician’s eye for detail, discussing the “why” of why he liked the game and how cool it is to play through and find little tidbits of sheer beauty in something that should just be an average shoot-em-up. I finally escaped by ducking into a subway station, and while catching my breath, I decided to explore a bit. Read More

  • Bentley gets into the green game with electric roadster concept

    We’ve talked much the last two weeks about going green and electric cars, and now Bentley is getting in on the act with this tiny-yet-awesome Continental DC electric concept car. Though it’s not planned for production, the 256-pound Bentley works quite well for what it is, and can reach a top speed of 40MPH. The fact that a company like Bentley is jumping into the electric car field… Read More

  • Investors Bullish on Internet-Enabled Picture Frames

    Apparently not everyone agrees with me that those hi-tech picture frames you bought for your parents last Christmas are probably a passing fad. Longworth Venture Partners and CommonAngels have just put an additional $3 million into FrameMedia, which provides a platform for delivering content to these frames wirelessly. The round brings the company’s total funding to $5.2 million after a… Read More

  • Wii, fat-boy, Wii

    From his earlier experiment. Are you a little bit fat? Want to lose a bit and then gain it back and then try to lose again? Then hop on a Wii Fit and burn off those pounds. This guy lost 9 pounds playing Wii Sports, gained 19, and now wants to lose them all again on Wii Fit. Not quite sure what he’s gaining in this wacky yo-yo experiment and from the pasty look of his non-belly… Read More

  • Canadian bank gives out Eee PCs with new accounts

    Wow, that’s MUCH better than a stupid alarm clock or gold fountain pen. Royal Bank of Canada is giving away 2G Surf Eee PCs when you open a new account. Sure wish I lived in Canada. Is there a catch? Of course! There are only two eligible accounts to choose from; one’s $14 per month and one’s $30 per month. But hey, free Eee. Well played, Canada. RBC Royal Bank… Read More

  • DIY tiny helicopter-powered blimp

    Those tiny foam helicopters are nigh impossible to control; I broke one by crashing it into a bookcase last summer. A project at Make remedies this, and teaches you, reader, how to construct your own, easy-to-fly blimp of sorts. You’ll need two of those helicopters, wizzzzadrrrrry, something called a dowel and some actual skill. Having none, I’ll pass. Best done while not fighting… Read More

  • Amazon is not OK with NY sales tax, sues the state of New York

    That dumb law Gov. David A. Paterson signed off on last week has Amazon raging mad and they’re not going to take it. Last month the NY state legislature passed a bill that would require online retailers who have no physical presence in the state to collect sales tax. The law uses a bit of a loophole to force online shops to do this. As most of you know, Amazon has a huge network of… Read More

  • Microsoft/Yahoo: No Deal Today, Markets Look For Announcement Early Monday

The alternate board members, who must be notified before any announcement of Microsoft going officially hostile, have… Read More

  • AlphaGrip Handheld Computer, surprisingly, is small

    Despite having quite a headache and approximately $400 worth of drink tickets on my desk, I yet post. And about really fun stuff, too. This little gem is the AlphaGrip Handheld Computer. Esoteric name aside, she’s a computer that so happens to be really, very small. Yeah, I was surprised, too! Apparently she’s rated at 50-70 words per minute, so it’s more tool than toy. Read More
